Learning Technologies in the Workplace Award Winner 2002: Cisco Systems Canada Co. (2002)

Cisco Systems’ field e-learning connection is a unified framework that delivers training activities and communications to the company’s sales force quickly and effectively.

Cisco, a world market leader in networking technology, established its e-learning connection in 1999. It is a single, online point of entry that plans, tracks, develops, and measures the skills and knowledge of the company’s sales force. The global site links tens of thousands of searchable Web-based learning aids and job-specific learning paths with corresponding individual histories and access to online assessment tools and certification examinations.

E-learning is a cost-effective alternative for Cisco. Live Internet broadcasts and rebroadcasts to multiple users in multiple sites cost little and reach many people, with staff able to access training whenever and wherever they want.

Virtual classrooms and remote labs provide access to equipment, lab equipment, training environments, and techniques that are too costly to replicate locally for every learner.

Employees have electronic access to Cisco experts or “e-mentors” who can respond via email, phone, or virtual meetings where they can walk a learner through an exercise.
