Online Student Induction Programme

We developed an online Student Induction Programme with Surrey University that doubles as an introduction to the university and a suite of student-facing topics: mental health, diversity, social media savvy, drugs & alcohol, sexual consent, support at our university and employability.

Stay up-to-date
If you buy any of our academic e-learning courses you’ll receive any updates we make, and always be up-to-date with current legislation.

Learning by design
All our e-learning courses are highly interactive with rich graphics and audio-visual content blending a variety of question-types to encourage learners to apply concepts to their daily work routine.

An (optional) end-of-course test assesses learners on the level of knowledge they’ve retained – pass rates can be set as required.

Easy to implement & customise
This e-learning course comes with Marshall E-Learning’s Learning Management System which allows you to manage all your e-learning and track completed training.

Our in-house developers can quickly & effectively adapt this course to your sector and organisation. You could also add your own graphics, photos & video and amend content to include your policies, procedures, and key areas.

At Marshall Elearning we’re totally focused on creating content that’s exactly right for your learners. That’s why we’ve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely original’s required, we’ll make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? We’ll put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Engagement
Page-turning e-learning just doesn’t work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People don’t learn well if they feel they’re being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

‘What’s in it for me?’ is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.


“I am super happy with the student induction course, and especially as the Marshall E-Learning team delivered the module before the original deadline. There’s certainly pressure on students and Universities to cover these topics (ie Alcohol and Drug Awareness, Sexual Consent on Campus, Diversity, Social Media Savviness, Getting Support, Mental Health, Employability) as we want to be sure that we are providing relevant, current information to our students about important topics that are relevant to student life today. I am super happy with the student induction course, and especially as the Marshall E-Learning team delivered the module before the original deadline. The team have been fantastic to work with and I hope this module will be really successful and we can continue to work with Marshall’s.” Carol Clutton, Student Support Services, University of Surrey
