Digitization sheds light on ship performance and SQLearn is proud to be part of it. A sample of the company’s contribution to the digitalization of shipping is its collaboration with the international operator, owner and manager of LNG carriers, GasLog Ltd., providing e-learning services for a fleet of 27 vessels.
According to Riviera Maritime Media, digitalization is generating greater transparency and more insight into fleet operations. However, it can be challenging for seafarers unless they receive technology-change training.
“Technology changes could improve things,” said former GasLog Chief Operating Officer Richard Sadler. “Technology-change processes are about managing people on board,” he added. Managers need to ensure seafarers are comfortable interacting with the technology.
Therefore, SQLearn created Dolphin Platforms, a complete suite of specialized services for the shipping industry. Dolphin Platforms include a range of innovative and effective products, using flexible, interactive and reflective learning techniques. Dolphin Library – part of Dolphin Platforms –is consisted of interactive e-learning courses that cover the training needs of the shipping companies. The e- learning courses are based on STCW topics that cover national, international and flag requirements. Seafarers access the courses via Dolphin System, a web based e-learning system offered via a hardware solution for onboard training.
GasLog competency assurance manager Archontia Leni said e-learning products also go beyond STCW requirements. “We are able to provide our crew with specialized training, while at the same time managing all e-learning activities on board and ashore,” she said.
A Greek company founded in 2006, SQLearn is a specialized provider of e-learning services, including custom e-learning solutions, integrated Learning Management Systems development, instructional design and custom e-learning content development, game-based learning, serious games development, 3D training simulations, mobile learning, and e-learning consultancy services.
SQLearn’s e-learning facilities and e-learning courses are certified according to relevant ABS standards and to ISO 9001:2015.
