Area9 Lyceum and VEJ-EU were awarded the “Comenius Edu Media Gold Medal” in the Comenius EduMedia Awards 2020, presented by The Society for Education, Information and Media (GPI) in Berlin. This award recognizes their jointly developed blended learning product built on Area9’s Adaptive Learning Platform Area9 Rhapsode™, which has been shown to improve certification examination success rates of danish street workers.
“We are honored that VEJ-EU and Area9 Lyceum received a Comenius Edu Media Gold Medal in the Comenius EduMedia Awards,” Ulrik Juul Christensen, M.D., CEO of Area9 Lyceum. “This unique technology continues to make a positive impact on the training and preparation of danish street workers.”
Requirements were that everyone who works on Danish roads must be in possession of a certificate containing the safety rules and best practices for guarding workplaces on the road. In the classes there were learners with very different needs. Some were very experienced, others were new employees without experience; some were experienced engineers and others were workers with little formal training. The cooperation between VEJ-EU and Area9 Lyceum resulted in a blended learning concept to redesign the curriculum using adaptive learning with Area9 Rhapsode™ in combination with practical learning in class.
The results of using Area9 Rhapsode™ are clear
• The project was delivered on time and without interruption of lessons and proved very popular with both learners and teachers.
• The new mixed approach provides a truly personalized learning experience, achieving a 100% pass rate on certification, while reducing face-to-face training to a highly interactive and engaging day.
• Learners who suffer from dyslexia or color blindness, who have little or no formal education, or who have a higher degree, receive individual on-demand tuition tailored to their needs, combined with practical examples.
• The time for acquiring knowledge within the course has been reduced from 8 hours to less than 3 hours on average and guarantees 100% competence even for slower learners.
VEJ-EU trains workers on Danish roads to ensure the safety of workers and road users.
