After an intensive exploration and selection phase, GGZ Ecademy decided to choose the aNewSpring platform as their learning platform. Since some member institutions already used their own internal system or learning platform and content, work had to be done to move to a single learning platform.
Because the aNewSpring platform has a ‘reseller function’ and can easily load and integrate ‘external’ content via Scorm or other formats, this issue could be solved rather easily. Also, making use of the LTI functionality, interconnections between systems could be created. This means that all digital learning materials/modules are easily interchangeable between the central GGZ Ecademy platform and local platforms of member institutions.
To make it more specific: a module designed for all members can be ‘uploaded’ and represented in the own look and feel of a local institutions’ academy. In addition, a locally produced learning module in the look and feel of the specific institution can be made available for all members via GGZ Ecademy in the general look and feel.
These functionalities led to the possibility of a very flexible ‘mix-and-match’ approach. A design team (central at GGZ Ecademy or at a local member organization) can create a new learning program (learning journey) by mixing and matching existing and new learning content.
