We supported charity Learn Appeal by creating new eLearning courses

We’re delighted to have supported the Learn Appeal Capsule this year. This fantastic eLearning charity offers a chance for the eLearning industry to combine expertise and talents, to bring learning to people and communities who are currently excluded from an environment we take for granted.

We contributed by creating three eLearning courses, taking content previously donated to Learn Appeal on the topics of climate change, recycling lead-acid batteries and recycling rubber. Our eLearning Consultant Intern, Jamie Paddock, undertook the instructional design, graphics and development for all three, re-working them into interactive and engaging courses available in an offline environment.

The Climate Change course is targeted at anyone who wants to raise awareness of and take steps to combat climate change in the developing world.

The Recycling Lead-Acid Batteries course is important in developing countries where the batteries are used to power solar panels to produce electricity, especially in rural areas.

The Recycling Rubber course looks primarily at the reclamation and reuse of scrap tyres as the major source of waste rubber in developing countries.

The Learn Appeal Capsule brings eLearning to places with no or prohibitively expensive internet access and/or limited mains electricity. The capsule, powered by a Raspberry Pi 2, houses an SD card that holds all the content, a Wi-Fi router and an 18-hour USB-chargeable internal battery. It can support up to 200 connected users and promotes collaboration and interactivity by enabling learners to upload their own content too.

Jackie Kennedy, Unicorn Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are delighted to have supported Learn Appeal this year. As a company we get so much from making a difference to the charities we support and we hope these courses will have a real impact in helping Learn Appeal achieve their aim of making eLearning available to all, which in turn can help change the lives of the people and communities they are supporting both at home and abroad."
