Tata Interactive Systems Wins Brandon Hall Learning Award for Second Consecutive Year
MUMBAI, India, November 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), a global leader in innovative learning solutions, won a coveted Brandon Hall silver award for excellence in the Custom Content category.
The Lifeboat Assistant program developed by TIS for Holland America Line (HAL) won the Brandon Hall Silver Award 2010 in the Custom Content category. A "novel" concept by TIS - a graphic novel, in fact - this program aims to increase the knowledge of lifeboat assistants on operating life-saving equipment, and in the process, improving performance while executing survival-skill procedures. Tata Interactive Systems' win was announced on Thursday, November 4. The winners are listed at http://www.brandon-hall.com.
Jack Frazier, Deputy Director at HAL, said, "We decided that we would use a 'story' to teach this concept, after some discussions we adopted the graphic novel approach as the best option - I am thrilled that it has really turned out well. This approach completely engages the learner and keeps them interested. It's an honor to develop a program that is recognized as being well done."
