Mobile Learning Awards 2021- be part of it!

Do you manage mobile learning projects using the Teach on Mars solution and want to promote your initiative? Then why not take part in the Mobile Learning Awards 2021?

Reaching for the stars

For the fourth year running, this large contest will reward the best accomplishments made using Teach on Mars technology, and will encourage the exchange of best practices in mobile learning.

As for the previous editions, the lucky winners of the competition will be selected after an internal preselection process, carried out by Teach on Mars mobile learning experts, with the selected projects then being submitted to an external Jury, comprising a panel of training sector professionals. The prize-winners will be announced in September. Will you be among them?

Browsing safely

We’re all spending a lot of time online, and even more time than usual for some, during lockdown: all the more reason to be especially vigilant! What if this was an opportunity to change our behaviour over the long term so that we also limited risk in this area?

Phosforea, a training organisation specialising in cybersecurity, invites you to educate your employees and make them the strong links in your IT security chain. As remote working becomes the norm, it’s essential to get a grip on our cyberspace and adopt the right reactions when using a computer.

The charity Teach on Earth is also inviting us to learn about good reporting practices with its new training course “Illegal content: click, report“. Let’s work together for a safer internet!

Supporting sustainable development

Does your organisation want to go further in fostering the eco-citizenship of your employees during lockdown? In the “Corporate Social Responsibility” category, publisher Teach on Earth also offers the following options:

  • SDG: what if you chose your superpowers?“, so that each of us can become a superhero in championing the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
  • Two 5-minute quizzes on climate change and recycling so we can successfully brush off the next climate sceptic who crosses our path.
  • Water: a universal need that springs eternal?“, created in partnership with the NGO Solidarités International to help learners understand the climate, economic and lifesaving issues connected with access to drinking water.

Cultivating soft skills

In addition to the manager/employee pairing published last month on teleworking, publisher Skillsday now allows all your managers to manage the performance of their virtual teams thanks to a new title, “Managing remotely”.

You can also foster the continuous improvement of your employees:

  • through collective intelligence, for constantly enhanced innovation and performance as a group
  • but also individually, by making self-knowledge an asset with “Knowing yourself better: an introduction to personal development“.

A whole range of options to turn lockdown into an opportunity for learning! Check out the demo versions in the Teach on Mars app (Learning Station category: Innovation, CSR, Management and Soft Skills sections), available on the App Store and Google Play.

With Discovery, make continuous learning central to your app!

Manage your New Year’s resolutions with the latest Learning Station releases!

2020 is here… And so are the latest Learning Station releases! Still not sure about your New Year’s resolutions? Teach on Mars is here to offer some suggestions.

Resolution 1: Drive better with Easy Driver

To get 2020 off to a flying start, we’re delighted to welcome a brand-new publisher to the Learning Station, with expertise in a subject eagerly awaited by many of you: driving and road safety!

Easy Driver offers entertaining and engaging courses to raise awareness and train employees in the benefits of safe and sustainable transport: preventing work-related risks, the benefits of eco-driving, promoting active forms of transport, etc.

The Easy Driver modules are in the form of short and effective videos. Animations and a voice-over explain each situation and encourage learners to remember advice for calmer driving. Quizzes are provided for self-assessment.

This new collection explores three complementary areas of expertise:

  • Road safety awareness: the risks associated with familiar journeys, what to do in an accident, driving in town and at night.
  • The highway code: understanding priority rules at French junctions, how to complete the European Accident Statement.
  • Eco-mobility: how to get around by bike, information on green forms of transport, etc.

To try your hand at efficient driving while keeping to the straight and narrow, head over to the Business Efficiency, Regulations and CSR categories in your favourite catalogue, the Learning Station Playlist. You’ll be in the driving seat!

Resolution 2: get (even!) more efficient with Skillsday

Our publisher Skillsday is also an ideal navigator for improving your efficiency, whatever destination you choose!

You can explore the topic from a managerial viewpoint, with:

  • Manage performance by leveraging human potential
  • The art of feedback

You can also improve onboarding of new employees throughout the value chain, from first contact to welcoming them in your teams, with:

  • How to attract talent
  • Successful onboarding and maximising the talent in your team

In terms of organisation, optimise your teamwork by boarding the spaceship with season 1 and 2 of “Project management, the essentials of project management“!
Last but not least, innovation is also in the spotlight this January with:

  • Innovation management
  • Impersonation scams
