E-Learning for the Workplace: Creating Canada's Lifelong Learners – KeySpan Energy Canada (2001)

Compliance and regulatory training form the basis of KeySpan Energy Canada’s business case for e-learning.

KeySpan is a gas processing company operating pipelines and other facilities in Alberta. To operate safely and efficiently, and to produce quality products, KeySpan’s workers need to be well trained, and capable of adapting to new technologies and new regulations.

In 1998, KeySpan developed its first competency-based, skills-oriented online training system. Dubbed the Capability Development System, or CDS, it consisted of a software assessment tool; skills profiles for various occupations; and a curriculum repository that provided technical information on the gas processing industry.

KeySpan focuses its e-learning initiatives on specific projects or business units to better manage its training outcomes. As well, it has partnered with equipment suppliers to acquire needed training content and e-learning modules.

The e-learning system allows KeySpan to track both learning activities and learning gaps among its employees. By linking the progress of employees to the company’s broader performance management system, it can also better align its learning programs; reward learning development; and determine which learning modules are most effective.
