A new learning management system (LMS) will make Biometria’s digital training courses more modern and effective. Digital learning is becoming increasingly important for many companies. It permits greater flexibility while also being more cost-effective and eco-friendly, as there for instance is less need for travel. “We have a major need for a new learning management system as our existing solution is difficult to develop further. We looked for something that was more modern and could be customised to suit our specific needs. After a thorough investigation, Xtractor and Semcon was our obvious choice of partner because they have extensive experience of digital training and offer a modern, user-friendly LMS,” says Ulrika Sten, Communications Director at Biometria and responsible for the new learning management system. In the first stage of the partnership, the LMS will be available for Biometria’s member companies and customers, with trainings such as scaling of timber and harvester audits. Emphasis will also be on training courses resulting in certification. In the second stage, the platform will be launched for internal trainings at Biometria. The learning management system to be applied is Totara Learn, which is a flexible, cost-effective learning platform offering broad functionality. As part of this project, Xtractor will be assisting by providing cutting edge expertise in the fields of system integration and pedagogy. Biometria is owned by more than 250 member companies in the forestry industry and is one of its key stakeholders. They perform impartial scaling of the timber that flows between forests and industry so that all forest owners in Sweden can feel secure in their timber trades.
