Columbia launches eLearning system with Adobe

Columbia Shipmanagement has launched its own eLearning Management System (LMS) in partnership with Adobe Systems.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The eLearning platform enables seafarers to access and complete training assignments at their own pace and from any location without network connectivity. Seafarers can take part in interactive courses using computers or mobile devices to download the courses, generate certificates after successful completion of the relevant test, collect points and badges, post comments and questions in dedicated forums, participate in webinars, attend virtual classrooms and access virtual reality content.

Masters and Managers can create Continuous Development Programmes for their teams by enrolling them through specific courses. The captured data helps monitor the effectiveness of training, tracks attendance, and provides feedback on participation, as well as managing results on how quickly the workforce is improving through skill awards.

All Columbia’s seafarers have now access to the platform.

Captain Faouzi Fradi, group director of training at Columbia Shipmanagement, said: “Seafarers play a key role in operating Columbia’s fleet, hence it is of utmost importance to recognise their contribution and efforts by caring about their wellbeing and satisfaction. Columbia’s LMS has been implemented to train and educate seafarers but also to adapt to their schedule and lives, while onboard or ashore and help them train on their own terms.”{/mprestriction}
