We look for 3 things when commissioning or purchasing any e-learning: the key messages communicated to the audience; how engaged the audience will be; and how the material can be tailored to the needs of the audience. With products such as GDPR or Health and Safety the material must cover all key areas and topics, and it is vital that the language used, case-studies discussed and examples fit the university context. Marshall E-Learning understand all of this, which makes their programmes so attractive.
