Learning Technologies Gold Award

Gold for imc and the Schaeffler Group at the Learning Technologies Awards in London

imc AG, based in Germany, and its customer Schaeffler Group have been awarded Gold in the category "Best Use of Social and Collaborative Learning Technologies" at the Learning Technologies Awards in London.

Learning Technologies Award 2023 Gold

London/Saarbrücken, November, 2023

Each year the Learning Technologies Awards celebrate the commitment, enthusiasm and passion for learning technologies around the world. The finalists were selected from over 450 entries by an independent judging panel organised by The Learning Network.

 

The joint project between imc and Schaeffler, the "Climate Action Day", convinced the expert jury: From 2040, the Schaeffler Group wants to work with a completely climate-neutral supply chain. The company's own production is to be "green" as early as 2030. However, a successful climate change requires the mobilisation of around 83,000 employees.

 

In order to kick-start this enormous process of change, Schaeffler organised the "Climate Action Day" with the support of imc: a day on which all production worldwide was stopped for 90 minutes so that employees could exchange ideas on the topic of climate neutrality and develop concepts together. Extensive training and workshops were organised around this day.

 

The starting point for the learning activities was an animated, integrated landing page with a chatbot, curated content and a direct link to the existing learning management system and Microsoft Teams. Learners around the world were able to access the different learning content, such as training courses and guides, at the same time through different entry points in the portal.

imc Presents Another Part of the 'Cyber Crime Time' Awareness Game

IT Security Training: imc Presents Another Part of the 'Cyber Crime Time' Awareness Game

The successful awareness game 'Cyber Crime Time' is extended. The 'Phishing Detection Booster' is now available. In order to continuously train learners in the field of IT security, imc is already working on a complete Learning Journey.

Saarbruecken, May 2022

imc, a leading provider of digital education and training, presents another part of its awareness game 'Cyber Crime Time' and declares war on data theft with the 'Phishing Detection Booster'.

Cyber crime time phishing detection booster

"We've noticed unsual activity on your login account. Change you password immediately!" Almost every day we receive similar emails from dubious senders. The Phishing Detection Booster empowers learners to quickly and confidently decide if it is a fraud or not. The goal of the training is to gain a certain routine in recognizing clear signs of phishing mails. Using concrete examples, players learn to recognize the most important features of a fraud mail and immediately apply what they have learned to collect points and thus reach the next level.

 

Last year, imc enjoyed great success with its multi-award-winning serious game Cyber Crime Time. Dr. Robert Lohmann, Product Manager Learning Content at imc, is convinced of the quality of the training:

imc presents the awareness game 'Cyber Crime Time'

How a hacker views IT security: imc presents the awareness game Cyber Crime Time

Cyber Crime Time is a serious game that lets the learner slip into the role of a hacker, learn the most common cyber-attacks first hand, while understanding how to best protect themselves from them.

Saarbruecken, 06 September 2021

As of today, imc – the leading provider for digital training and professional development – is offering the new awareness game Cyber Crime Time. The game can be played free of charge for personal use.

Mobile data, free internet access and remote work make us flexible – and a target for attacks. Many employees know little about IT security, and often become victims of cyber-attacks unbeknownst to them.

 

Creating awareness of cyber criminality is key for memorable training. That is why imc developed an awareness game: to help learners grasp the issue while motivating them to dive deeper into IT security. Cyber Crime Time lets the learner slip into the role of a hacker. Step by step, they learn the most common cyber-attacks first hand. The learner – or hacker – gradually adds to their 'hacker toolkit' to obtain secret information through the employees of a fictional company.

Sven R. Becker, Board Member, imc

“Protecting a company against cyber-attacks needs more than technical measures. The ‘human factor’ is one of the most important components of a successful IT security system,” explains Sven R. Becker, Member of the Executive Board at imc. “It is therefore key to sensitise each employee for the importance of IT security – and the most effective way to achieve that is by turning it into a game, letting the learner experience scenarios they can recognise in an immersive environment.”

Cyber Crime Time can be integrated into any Learning Management System (LMS) and added to the corporate standard training package. A personal hacker experience is also possible without LMS integration: The online version can be played on any device and is free of charge for personal use on a single-user licence.
