Geo Spacial Faculty installs new LMS

Rocks form slowly and so does technological progression in the industry, but there is one company who is adopting new methods to solve old problems.

Dedicated to the generation of new ideas, the Spatial Sciences Institute has a history steeped in the evolution of new technologies and methods. So when it came to updating the way they interact with each other and pass on critical knowledge, they turned to a partner which specialised in just that.

Aduro is a local Australian start up whose growth has been measured in leaps and bounds. Leveraging tried and tested teaching methods and combining it with cutting edge SaaS or cloud based web conferencing technology, they have successfully transformed the unit into an efficient knowledge sharing community.

The benefits are overwhelming. Now scientists working on Projects which might have bearing on similar projects or subject areas are all notified instantly through a tag notification process. Users can collaborate without the hindrance of geographical location. Remembering to CC everyone in your email correspondence is a thing of the past. All powered through a certification based web User Interface (UI) a simple login will let anyone on any platform or device start sharing ideas through this platform.

Learning Management Systems or LMS for short are not new but the increases in bandwidth and web browser technology has meant that the accessibility of this solution is increased. Having transformed university learning through Open Universities Australia, Aduro has ventured into the private business market, adapting and integrating their LMS to their clients.

‘Relevancy and customising solutions has always built value for our clients’, says Marketing Director, Sarah Hayes. ‘We are bringing a novel idea to life through some simple, yet effective tailoring where our customers are concerned’. Too easily this point over looked. The efficiency gain of a well-structured e-learning system with good user-fit is essential in today’s market place.

It seems Aduro is not alone in their struggle to improve collaboration and the sharing of ideas through digital mediums. There are a whole swath of systems all competing for the same space. So what is the difference? Efficiency, ease of installation, simplicity. Investment into quality UI, UX design is critical as is rounds of post launch testing.

Not every out of the box product is suitable for each working environment. Do your research and find the best fit for your business as efficiency gains can save a lot of resources in the long run.

Working in science means you need the right information

Typically scientists treat themselves as very insular and out of the spotlight type individuals. They like to shy away from what is important. This concept was particularly overturned by the recent CSIRO protests so far as budgetary cuts and workforce cuts.

If you are being made redundant or you are scared about the security of your position within the CSIRO or another Government Department, you need to consider the importance of claiming a redundancy.
