eLearnBiztro is a DEMO site demonstrating alternatives to add learning to a website. Employees and clients can leave your site with a bit more knowledge than when they entered. This DEMO uses content on leadership and communication skills as part of the demonstration as these are skills that any employee, suppliers, clients or even friends and colleagues may benefit from. Open source tools such as Joomla and Moodle, instructional design techniques and eLearning methods are combined to demonstrate how large or small organizations can use the Internet as a powerful learning tool for employees, suppliers, clients, family and friends.
The site uses the Joomla content management system (CMS) as the web portal. The CMS should be chosen carefully as it is the first and powerful learning tool that is available to you. Joomla is open source, which means free use to the public, and it is easy to use and set up. Joomla also has a large following, which means many programmers work to make it more effective with easy to use plugins and extensions. The slide show on this page is a Joomla extension that can be used to highlight important learning messages or additions to your training library or as a reminder to employees of an upcoming policy rollout.
