Press Release

Australia-based Epworth HealthCare Recognized for its Transformation to a Vibrant Learning Culture

D2L, the global learning technology leader, today announces its work with Epworth HealthCare received a 36th Annual LEAD (Leadership Excellence And Development) Corporate Leadership Award. Epworth’s use of D2L’s learning platform was recognized in the “Best Use of a Learning Management System” category. The award from HR.com honours Epworth’s transformation from an institution primarily focused on compliance training to an elearning organization committed to improved work practices, learner-led learning and digital literacy.

D2L Powers Epworth HealthCare’s Communities of Learning

Epworth HealthCare is the state of Victoria’s largest not-for-profit private healthcare group, renowned for excellence in diagnosis, treat-ment, care and rehabilitation. As a leading teaching hospital with thousands of doctors, clinical workers and students within its institution, Epworth is using D2L Brightspace to go beyond compliance training and create a strong culture of learning focused on employee onboard-ing, technical training and professional and leadership development. D2L also empowers learners to lead, teach one another and interact with the entire Epworth community on the platform, which has led to increased engagement with training among staff.

“Not only have we developed a strong learning culture, but we have saved costs and delivered more opportunities for learning through online modules and video content,” said James Quealy, Group Manager Learning Support Services at Epworth HealthCare. “D2L fits seamlessly into our IT infrastructure and our learning experience is now more engaging, highly personalized and collaborative.”

Prior to D2L, Epworth was outsourcing development of its elearning. By teaming with D2L, the healthcare enterprise has cut learning costs by two-thirds and is able to deliver elearning modules and content five times faster than before. Delivering learning online accounts for only 25 percent of the cost of running face-to-face training courses, and Epworth avoids tying up valuable meeting space across its facilities.

“Effective digital solutions can set the stage for dynamic learning cultures in the workplace,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “Our award-winning platform helps organizations create new learning pathways for learners, save operational costs and achieve more. This tremendous honour from HR.com validates our learning approach and advanced platform capabilities.”

Designed for modern digital learners, D2L’s Brightspace elevates organizational learning to support improved employee performance, deliver effective leadership development programs and drive better business outcomes. The D2L platform curates and enables personal-ized learning experiences, serves up relevant content at the time of need, facilitates video feedback and social assessments, and provides easy-to-use content creation and curation tools to capture knowledge, transfer expertise and future-proof an organization’s workforce.
