ISQ Earns Industry Recognition for Connect and Learn

Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) has earned industry recognition for its optimised eLearning platform Connect&Learn.

ISQ was recently named a gold award winner in the 2018 LearnX Impact Awards which recognise Australian enterprise projects and solutions that deliver best practice and business value.

ISQ Executive Director David Robertson said there was strong demand in the independent schooling sector for self-paced eLearning.

“Connect&Learn is a cost-effective business solution delivering tailored online learning to school staff where and when it suits them, whatever part of the state they’re in,” Mr Robertson said.

“Following the release of a major system upgrade at the end of 2017 which improved Connect&Learn’s functionality and usability, more than 9,000 active users have completed online modules and courses developed by ISQ,” he said.

“Independent school staff have access to more than 70 modules on topics such as child protection, school governance, disability standards for education, effecting curriculum change, using educational data, Indigenous education and effective reading and writing instruction.”

“Twenty new modules are expected to be added to the platform by the end of the year.”

Mr Robertson congratulated ISQ staff leading the evolution of ISQ’s eLearning platform on the award.

“Connect&Learn is continuing to evolve and is now an integral part of ISQ’s delivery of high quality professional learning to independent school leaders, governors, teachers and staff,” he said.

The LearnX Awards, which are now in their 11th year, will be presented at the LearnX Live! Summit and Awards event in Melbourne on 30 October.

The event, which attracts leading learning and training industry organisations in Australia, showcases innovative workforce learning and business enterprise solutions and celebrates the talented teams behind them.
