BlueVolt continued to grow in second quarter 2012, adding 11,179 new users and 1,111 new online courses to its Learning Management System (LMS). Learners enrolled in 92,750 courses during the quarter, and earned 88,909 $BlueBucks for successfully completing training. The LMS now offers 14,912 courses.
BlueVolt launched online Universities for three new customers: White Rodgers, Vision 20/20 and IBM. BlueVolt’s online Universities provide a central hub for customers’ online and offline training efforts which make it easy to train, track and reward employees and participants in the sales channels.
A major milestone was achieved – the 2,000,000th $BlueBuck was awarded. BlueVolt’s unique built-in incentive and rewards program allows learners to earn $BlueBucks as they successfully complete online courses and prove their knowledge. $BlueBucks are instantly redeemable for virtual gift cards, which are valid at hundreds of online and retail businesses. To celebrate this milestone, all users who completed any course through the BlueVolt LMS during the promotional period were automatically entered in a drawing to win a grand prize vacation to the destination of the winner’s choice. Fifty runner-up prizes (one from each state) of 25 $BlueBucks were also available.
BlueVolt hosted its LEAP Ahead elearning conference in Portland during June, drawing record attendance. Three simultaneous tracks were offered on content development, training program management and LMS administration. Keynotes were delivered by Judy Unrein and Art Kohn.
“The second quarter was a busy one for BlueVolt. Despite the continued softness in the US economy, or perhaps because of it, we continue to rapidly grow the network of companies and users for our extended learning management platform in the 17 industries that we serve,” said Don Spear, BlueVolt president and CEO. “We were thrilled with the attendance at our elearning conference and the increasing adoption by our customers of online training as a primary method for productivity and sales improvement.”
