Kineo Creates Online Learning Centre for American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society has partnered with Kineo, the leading global learning solutions provider, to create a cutting edge online learning centre.

Using the Totara Learning Management System (LMS), the Society can now take a blended approach to training its 3 million volunteers right across the United States. 

As a charity, the American Cancer Society (ACS) relies on the goodwill of volunteers who give up their time to support cancer patients and their families, and raise much needed funds for the organisation. All volunteers require training and ACS has implemented elearning and live webinars to help save the precious time they are giving up to help the cause. 

Kineo has implemented Totara LMS as an online learning centre, providing the volunteers with easy access to learning content at home and on their personal devices. One of the key elements of the project has been to customise the look of the system and its navigation so ACS volunteers feel at home. The Kineo team achieved this by creating a branded interface based on the ACS main public website.

Steve Harris, Senior Learning Technologies Consultant at ACS, comments, "Our number one goal was to create a site that our volunteers would feel comfortable using and respond to positively. They range from high schoolers to retirees so anything we implemented had to be user friendly."

He continues, "The solution that Kineo has created for us is very impressive. We get great comments about how easy the learning centre is to use and the help it provides volunteers in finding what they need. In fact, the feedback has over-the-top positive!"

Steve Lowenthal, CEO of Kineo US also comments: "We’re delighted that the online learning centre is delivering such a great response for ACS volunteers as they do such an important job. This demonstrates the flexibility of Totara LMS beyond the corporate world, into an everyday situation where members of the public are finding and accessing the information they need, when and where they need it."

ACS joins a rapidly expanding community of Totara clients working with Kineo including Vodafone, Sony and Tesco.
