Consulting

One Consulting-level customer has planned their key projects for 2016 around major corporate initiatives. One of these initiatives is a focus on the organisation's global elearning platform.

Because the information centre wants to support end users in doing a better job with their self-service research and information needs, they've asked Jinfo for help to develop and implement a four-part elearning programme on basic information skills. The four parts will cover:

  • What's available
  • How to ask (and answer) a good research question
  • How to know what you've found is sufficient
  • When you really need to ask a specialist.

Completion of all four modules will enable the user to add credit or in-house certification to his or her personnel file.

Because of the corporate focus on the elearning platform this year, the information centre can piggyback on existing marketing and outreach efforts to promote the resources.

If you're thinking of developing or enhancing training resources for knowledge workers or information specialists, Jinfo can help. Contact our director of research, Robin Neidorf, on robin.neidorf@jinfo.com.

Our Content is the broad platform through which we publish research-based insights. Community provides the environment to discuss them with peers. Consulting tailors the insight to your needs. Find the right Jinfo Subscription level to meet your needs.
