Visual learning journey rolled out to Cancer Research UK volunteers

17th Mar 2016

Cancer Research UK roll out bespoke visual learning journeys to deliver their latest training to volunteers involved in their Relay For Life events.

The visual learning journeys are part of Cancer Research UK’s Learn For Life scheme.  Volunteers are guided on the visual learning journeys through a series of blended learning experiences (videos, eLearning courses, social/collaborative) which are completely unique for each user, arming them with everything they need to fundraise year-round and organise annual Relay For Life events. Each users’ learning journey is specifically tailored to fulfilling their role in the Relay For Life, using an engaging visual style customised for Cancer Research UK. 

Visual learning journeys not only allow the volunteers’ learning journey to be delivered in a fun, self-paced and engaging way but learners can share through forums and complete with each other too, giving enhanced business understanding.

Learners also have the ability to leave feedback and reviews, get access to personal information and an interactive dashboard function to signpost them to useful resources to help make their Relay For Life a successful fundraising event.

Managing Director for Digits Industries, Colin Bull, said: “Visual Learning Journeys are a fantastic, engaging way to deliver totally customizable blended learning experiences, both on and offline.  We are excited to partner on this great project with Cancer Research UK.”

Learning and Development Manager for Cancer Research UK, Louise Donnelly, said: “Learn For Life provides an opportunity for our volunteers to learn all about their role and engage with the charity in a different way. It allows them to gain up to date knowledge and resources at a time, place and pace that suits them. This is the first time we have engaged with our fundraising volunteers in this way and we are excited to see the impact it has to help raise more funds to beat cancer sooner”
