Learnx Platinum WinnerWe’re thrilled to announce that Ruth McElhone, eLearning Manager with B Online Learning, is a LearnX Platinum Award Winner for BEST ONLINE FACILITATOR for her delivery of the Master eLearning Course. Ruth is also one of our Articulate Storyline and Articulate Studio Certified Trainers.

“The focus of this award is on a talented online facilitator who has developed and maintained an effective online program, and whose online facilitation skills have had a significant impact on employees’ learning and development.” LearnX Foundation

“As an online facilitator teaching students how to develop and facilitate their own online course, I try and model best practice by using different eLearning approaches such as social media, creating engaging positive learning space and also flexibility. The course is delivered completely online through eLearning modules, assessments, webinars, social media interaction and phone and email support. Building a good, positive relationship with the student is critical to improving people’s attitudes to online learning and hopefully they can bring those skills and experiences with them back into their own organisations”.
