Mike Booth, director of e-learning strategy at Cable & Wireless Inc., spoke about his experiences of implementing a global learning management system for 8,500 employees and how his company is now developing e-learning content. He said the project has been a success, with 10,438 courses accessed in 2003/2004, compared with 8,340 in 2002/2003. Delegates were impressed by the high levels of e-learning penetration, now running at 71 per cent in Great Britain, and 59 per cent worldwide. The LMS was originally introduced as part of a wider initiative to implement an e-HR system, and to outsource its management to Accenture. C&W develops its content using Macromedia's Breeze. This lets users develop content in Microsoft's PowerPoint and convert it to Macromedia Flash, which can be easily deployed over the internet.
