JLG Industries Inc. has won its second straight SolutionFest Best Mobile Solution award from The eLearning Guild for its “JLG Hydraulics” course.
The award was announced at the Guild’s Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2014, held March 19 – 21 in Orlando, FL. More than 40 conference participants, including JLG, showed off their latest development efforts, giving attendees an opportunity to see a wide variety of eLearning solutions. Attendees then voted on the best entries in each of eight categories, as well as best vendor and best non-vendor.
JLG’s mobile solution was developed by Artisan E-Learning, a contractor based in Jacksonville, FL. The course provides customers with the basic information needed to read JLG hydraulic schematics and understand JLG hydraulic systems. The course shows how major hydraulic components used on JLG equipment function and prepares students to participate in hands-on training at JLG’s classroom training. The course was designed on a mobile platform so technicians worldwide can access the training anytime, anywhere.
“Our equipment is mobile, our customers are mobile, and our training is mobile,” said Rick Smith, JLG Industries senior director of product training.
“Winning the Best Mobile Solution award two years in a row is very exciting. It validates the hard work the JLG training department and our partners at Artisan are doing to deliver high-quality training to our customers. Our mobile e-learning offering is one of several training initiatives at JLG. We are on schedule to open our new training center and proving grounds in July.”
The course is one of several online training opportunities available through JLG University, a global learning environment designed to deliver training online while managing class enrollments and training records.
