We are pleased to confirm that the BCarm E-Learning course library has received a content and system update.
This update is focused on enhancing the user experience while circumventing the upcoming removal of Flash from internet browsers by the end of 2020.
The look, feel, and functionality of the E-Learning interactive courses has been updated and refined, while improvements have been made to the wording and layout of the course content.
What will I need to do?
Nothing! This update has been be applied to your E-Learning system in the background, so you can continue with your training and risk management as usual. The next time you start a new course, you will automatically be taken to the latest version of that course, seamlessly. If you are currently part-way through a course, that’s not a problem. You will remain on that version of the course until you complete it.
Can I see an example?
Of course! Please follow the link below to view some demo content produced in the new style, using the new player. View Demo
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the E-Learning course library changing?
Browser technology is evolving rapidly and to ensure we remain up-to-date we have updated our HTML5 course library. As Flash is being removed from all browsers by December 2020, we have taken this opportunity to update our HTML library only, although our Flash courses will continue to work.
What has changed?
The biggest change we have applied is to the course ‘player’. Don’t worry, the new player still contains all the great functionality you are used to (navigation, menu system, transcript for the voiceover etc.)
The graphics and images of the content have also been updated throughout to give the courses a new modern look and feel. View Demo
