A Fresh New Approach to eLearning

You know, not all eLearning is made equal.

While some suppliers would have you believe ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to online training programs – and that taking course after course, year after year, really is a good way to boost employee performance – here at DeltaNet International, we see things a little bit differently.

Because your business is unique

Bringing together the convenience and cost-effectiveness of off-the-shelf eLearning with all the benefits of an engaging, bespoke training curriculum, we’ve created something new – we call this innovation our ‘Collections’.

Collections are designed to offer a viable, highly flexible, and agile alternative to ‘traditional’ online learning.

Using Collections, your organisation can enjoy the best of both worlds; ready-made, holistic training programs that are designed to meet your particular learning needs.

It’s eLearning alright, but not as you know it.

Data Protection Training

What does the Data Protection Training Collection comprise?

Immersive learning

Scenario-based courses which place the learner at the centre of the experience and test their ability to make the right decisions. These courses are highly interactive and designed to promote learner engagement.


Short 5-10 minute learning vignettes focussed on key topics and designed to promote knowledge retention of key information. Microlearning courses can be quickly and easily deployed in response to particular risks and emerging training needs.

Diagnostic assessment

An AI-powered assessment to measure the learner’s understanding of the topic and offer follow up microlearning interventions designed to fill gaps in knowledge. The assessment is also useful for evaluating individual training needs for each employee.

Toolbox Talks

Resources based on corresponding microlearning courses which are designed to facilitate a blended learning experience for small groups. The courses come with downloadable facilitation notes which learners can print and use as part of face-to-face training.

Communications Resources

Engaging resources which can be printed out and displayed in the workplace or shared digitally on an intranet, newsletter or display screen. They are designed to promote a culture of compliance by reinforcing key behaviours in the day to day work environment.

Why choose the Collection approach to eLearning?

Ease of use
Collections mean training can be rolled out quickly, with minimum hassle, in direct response to your organisational needs and key-risk areas. It’s agile enough so that individual training can be deployed urgently if needed.
Increased engagement
Designed to prevent learning fatigue and promote engagement amongst learners, Collections mean your employees only take the training they need and are no longer forced to repeat unnecessary content. Our fresh modern design feels more natural and intuitive for users.
Improved Knowledge Retention
High engagement means higher knowledge retention and with a variety of learning styles on offer, e.g. adaptive learning, immersive learning, detailed study, and short courses, we've made learning easy. We also offer additional communication resources to support key messaging.
Upskilling and progression
Collections offer an intelligent approach to upskilling, adding value to your organisation without devaluing employee time. This has the added benefit of increased morale and commitment and helps minimise the cost of external recruitment since members of staff progress organically.
Increased ROI
Training is designed to add value to your business, not detract from it. Our approach means you can reduce the time spent on unnecessary training and training administration, resulting in increased productivity and better informed, more motivated employees.
Data Protection Training

Our Collections are a selection of learning interventions designed to enable organisations to roll out training over a number of years. Providing novel learning experiences to promote engagement and retention and embed a culture of compliance into your organisation.

Data Protection Microlearning Courses

Why is Data Protection training important?

Data Protection refers to the set of laws and principles designed to protect personal data stored by organisations as either electronic or paper files. These regulations control how personal data is used, stored, and shared by organisations, government bodies, and businesses alike. Everyone responsible for handling personal data (e.g. data controllers and data processors) must follow strict guidelines and principles to ensure that personal information is used fairly and compliantly, and multinational companies will often have to comply with the data protection laws of more than one country.

So, why is data protection so important? Well, apart from the risk of audits – and even criminal prosecution – from the Information Commissioner's Office (or similar authorities overseas), the main purpose of data protection regulation is to preserve the interests of the individuals whose personal data is being stored and processed. That's why it's so vital for organisations to protect themselves and their employees from risk by providing full and effective data protection training. With proper training, the likelihood of a data breach is greatly reduced.

What is Data Protection training?

Data protection training teaches the fundamental principles and practical requirements for complying with the eight principles of The Data Protection Act. As well as preparing staff for data handling responsibilities, this type of training will also educate employees on how to identify breaches (or potential breaches) of the Act and how to react and report these appropriately.

Data protection training is important because organisations have a responsibility to demonstrate their compliance when it comes to data protection and the new GDPR legislation (from May 2018). Organisations and individuals who breach data protection regulations risk criminal charges, large fines, and lasting reputational damage.

Who needs data protection training?

Everyone who is responsible for handling data must follow the data protection principles and should receive training on what these regulations are. Additionally, from May 2018, all staff involved in processing any sort of personal information – from employee records to customer contact details – must have an understanding of the new EU-wide GDPR legislation.

How can you make data protection training interesting for your business?

eLearning is an efficient way to provide training, but its chances of success can be boosted enormously if employers ensure to provide courses that are user-friendly and engaging. At DeltaNet International we believe in 'refreshing eLearning'. In other words, eLearning that is fun to complete (i.e. uses story-telling, immersive environments and gamification) and that applies directly to the learners using it (e.g. how to apply legislation to their everyday job function). We've also created a whole host of microlearning courses that are perfect for refreshing and reinforcing key learning objectives, in short, five-minute bursts. What's more, all our courseware is responsively designed to work on any device with internet access so users can truly access training anytime, any place.
