IDA’s LMS

IDA-LMSInfocomm Development Authority for Singapore or iDA aims to grow Singapore into a dynamic global infocomm hub and to leverage infocomm for Singapore’s economic and social development.

IDA aims to develop a vibrant infocomm ecosystem where MNCs and innovative foreign companies work alongside local infocomm enterprises and start-ups to innovate and grow the infocomm industry. It also seeks opportunities to grow local infocomm companies by facilitating their access into the global marketplace.

As part of its 10-year masterplan, iDA has been aiming to triple Singapore’s infocomm export revenue to S$60 billion by 2015. As of 2011, it was just about S$1 billion shy of this target.

Challenge

In lieu of this masterplan, iDA required a comprehensive blended learning management system for its internal staff training. Part of the requirements were it be highly secure, robust and flexible. This will be a multi phase development LMS with various stages requiring different implementation approaches and techniques.

Solution

ACP was awarded by iDA to provision their Learning Management System. The proposed system will support a blended learning approach inclusive of Learning Content Management (LCM) with e-learning capabilities and social media interactions. On top of that, it should be able to facilitate up to 1,600 users.

Without fail, ACP was able to develop and succesfully deploy an LMS which is currently supporting 1,800 internal users at iDA. This LMS portal has been also integrated with other external systems at iDA for a seamless training and learning experience.

Results

In the end, ACP has successfully deployed a fully customised and scalable learning portal that supports blended learning methodology and is equipped with functions including competencies tracking, training needs analysis and social media interactions for more than 1,600 Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) staffs.
