Leading multi-discipline, subsea engineering and training firm, Jee, Ltd., had just upgraded its online training site to enhance its blended learning and online offerings for the oil, gas, and renewables industries.

Says the Head of Courses at Jee, Jenny Matthew, “The oil and gas industry is calling out for flexible training solutions that can be used as a cost-effective way of training existing and new employees. This investment in our site, based on a ‘Moodle’ learning platform, is part of Jee’s ongoing commitment to provide comprehensive and flexible training programs.”

The Moodle platform’s key features include the following:

  • Improved, user-friendly layout – making it easier for delegates to navigate the site and track progress
  • Online chat tools and forums to enable knowledge transfer between tutors and delegates, as well as peer-to-peer learning
  • Supportive, interactive and integrated learning environment, with on-hand tutors to monitor progress and provide additional assistance when needed.

These new features to the platform are an integral part of the blended learning programs developed by Jee.  This type of learning ensures that deliveries are optimized by choosing the most suitable delivery method for every learning outcome.  Some Jee courses may be separated into self-study, online learning, coaching sessions and a tutor-led workshop for optimal learning.  The Moodle learning platform is the central fixture in this structure, providing an online knowledge hub for all learning activities and tools.

Matthew continues, “With our clients in mind, we have invested in our online Moodle system to ensure that it is up-to-date, user-friendly and fully flexible. We offer clients the ability to create a bespoke training program by choosing from a wide range of Jee’s learning materials which include over 200 course modules and access to our substantial knowledge library of case-studies, videos, worked examples, assessments and quizzes. The new features of our ‘Moodle’ site give users better control of the system, allowing them to adapt courses to suit their individual training requirements.”
