In 2014/2015, The IBS introduced a new E-Learning Service known as “Blended Learning” through which trainees will be able to train jointly in the classroom and through E-Learning, allowing them to expand their knowledge in the subject matter beyond what is presented in the classroom. This blended approach led to having IBS receiving the “IQUAD Learning 2016 – Technology Blend Award”.
In 2016/2017, the IBS was officially listed as an E-learning Case Study by Crossknowledge, a leading global E-learning provider, in their “Learning Journeys” success stories magazine which further asserts the power of the blended learning approach used by the IBS. The blended learning portal provides on-demand videos covering 400 different titles. The service will be accessible on PCs, Mac and on all mobile and smart devices, thus achieving a true and full “anytime/anywhere” learning and training.
As a continuation from 2013/2014, the institute continued to offer the My Management TV Service, which provides access for Member Banks’ senior staff to view short video snippets by renowned business leaders from around the world. These short video snippets are delivered by email and each addresses a specific subject relevant to daily activities.
In 2017/2018 the IBS will introduce a totally new E-Learning portal that will aim at providing a “Competency Based” E-learning platform which will enable trainees to focus on skills rather than focus on individual programs. The portal will also provide a “Community Learning” approach that will enable “peer-to-peer” learning. Finally the new portal will utilize a new “Gamification” approach to motivate trainees to learn more and more.
