Earning a special mention for Most Innovative Application of Learning Technology in the 2008 E-Learning Awards, Bupa has delivered benefits to its employees as well as the business by connecting learning to performance. When Bupa UK Membership Services wanted to refocus its online learning environment around performance for its 3,200 employees, it developed an innovative, next-generation portal, Performance Zone. The PLATO e-Learning portal, built and hosted by Edvantage Group, has been in place since 2004. But as an example of next-generation learning, Performance Zone uses Web 2.0 widgets (anything that can be embedded within a web page or any other page of HTML) to provide a uniquely personalized online learning environment. The Performance Zone launch took place in April 2008, with Edvantage staff onsite offering support and overviews of its features to employees. Promotional materials including a Bedlam cube, a slide puzzle and a poster were also developed.
