Area9 Lyceum

When COVID-19 hit, misinformation was widespread. Early on in the crisis, Area9 partnered with NEJM Group, publishers of the New England Journal of Medicine, and the American Association of Clinical Chemistry to release a free, research-backed, adaptive course for healthcare professionals on the origin of COVID-19, how it is transmitted, symptoms and differences in severity, complications, diagnosis, and prevention.

The course massively exceeded usage expectations, with 80,000 physicians, clinicians and nurses taking the course over several weeks.

Area9’s adaptive (algorithmic, real-time personalization of content) approach identified that although participants correctly knew 63% of the subject (on average), they held misconceptions 31% of the time that had implications for patient care. The adaptive course corrected these misconceptions in 100% of participants who completed the course.

GuyKat and Amnesty International

Amnesty’s Human Rights Education (HRE) comprises all educational, training, information, awareness-raising, and learning activities on human rights aimed at creating a rights respecting society. Globally in 2019, HRE projects engaged over 1.8 million people and led more than 483,889 to take action to defend human rights in 167 countries.

The organisation has collaborated with Guykat since 2018, to both develop content for future leaders and human rights activists in a range of different languages and to produce an engaging learner interface that motivates learners to come back for more.

IFPMA and SiyonaTech 

IFPMA represents research-based biopharmaceutical organisations globally. Their Code of Practice helps IFPMA members meet society’s expectations of the biopharmaceutical industry in their behaviour and decisions. Over time, the Code has evolved, and IFPMA needed a learning solution to help its members understand the changes and put them into practice. SiyonaTech created a high-impact, scenario-based learning solution to meet the needs of this diverse audience. Rich animations, highly visual interactive exercises and realistic scenarios consolidate and test the learners’ understanding of key concepts and their ability to make robust, values-based decisions. Gamification adds engagement, with ‘trusttokens’ earned along the way.

RMMBR

RMMBR is successfully filling the knowledge gap in the Netherlands (and Belgium) about AI’s impact through a free, easy-to-understand and interactive online course for all. In 18 months, four versions were developed (original, junior, English and Flemish), reaching 1% of citizens. Of 171,285 Dutch visitors, 40% completed all five hours of content.

The course’s success is based on relevant multimedia content (questions, videos, expert interviews, animations and more) combined with the smart use of technology. Its impact and reach has been maximised through the recruitment of a wide network of committed partners and unpaid endorsements/media coverage.

Secretariat Général de la Défense et de la Sécurité Nationale

Raising awareness about terrorism is as such a major security issue. In setting up this awareness platform – Tackling Terrorism Together –, the General Secretariat for Defence and National Security (SGDSN) offers citizens, professionals and local representatives the opportunity to learn or deepen their knowledge with regards to vigilance, prevention and protection on terrorist threat. Our digital platform provides access to best practices and reaction to adopt in order to ensure the safety of all!

It appeared obvious that developing a MOOC user friendly and with different format contents was the best possible option to widen understanding on terrorism. Let’s tackle terrorism together!
