Melbourne, November 18, 2021

Among others, the awareness game "Cyber Crime Time" was awarded Gold in the category "Best Game E-Learning Design". In the freely available IT security training, learners become hackers themselves and try to damage a fictitious company. Along the way, they learn first-hand about the most common cyber attacks and can better recognize security risks in the future.

 

The highest possible award, the Platinum Award, imc received in the "Future Learning" category. The award went to the customised learning model that imc created together with the Green Climate Fund. The project originated in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Another Gold Award went to imc, in partnership with the Victorian Department of Health, for enhancing the Learning Management System (LMS) to accelerate knowledge transfer to the Covid-19 Task Force, in the category of "Best Pandemic Response: compliance training."

Also going to Victoria is the Gold Award in the "E-learning widespread adopter initiative" category for imc and the Department of Education and Training. Here, a pathway was created to train teachers in dealing with students who have difficulty with numeracy and mathematics.

Another Gold Award was received by imc and the authorities in Victoria in the "Employee Experience Strategy" category.
