Class is In Session
Monster Energy Drink is a long-standing EKKO Media client. Over the past decade, we’ve built many websites for their various brand initiatives, the latest being an all new E-Learning website.
The basic premise was to create a platform that could host, manage and administrate all aspects of internal training and dealer training in one centralized location. The platform needed to be robust, engaging, visually appealing and consistent with the company’s branding. It also needed to be responsive for viewing on mobile devices and it needed to have multi-language support, given the global footprint of the Monster Energy brand.
A Learning Management System
As a learning management system, management required a method that would allow them to post a variety of content from training courses and exams to presentation decks and videos.
To do so, we developed an interactive drag and drop functionality that makes creating and managing content almost foolproof.
Custom Course Builder
One of the more robust features is the course building function. This allows administrators the ability to quickly create courses using a resource library, complete with images, exams and quizzes.
All of the assets are located on a new Learning Resource Server (LRS).
Course assignments can be segmented by division, job title or region, allowing the brand to ensure that all of its personnel are up to speed at all times.
Live Instructor Support and Field Training
Dovetailing into the custom course builder is the live instructor support. This essentially provides a real-time link to field personnel that will facilitate in-field training.
This saves the Company money by allowing training to be conducted remotely and frees up resources for other initiatives. It also allows the company to roll out new initiatives globally within days rather than within weeks or even months.
Core Functionality & Features
Monster’s new E-Learning website draws upon imagery and branding applied to their other consumer-facing websites. Maintaining consistency across the brand’s visual imagery has always been of paramount concern to this brand. This meant ensuring that both static and dynamic assets were not only brand-right, but match the high standards set for both user experience and engagement.
As an E-Learning platform, SCORM compatibility was critical, and ensuring compliance required careful consideration to all aspects of administration and functionality.
An SMS/Email and a site notification function would be required but with a twist --- it had to be administrated by users, groups or regions. Collectively, this system would be responsible for notifying users of the platform of upcoming exams, provide students access to scores and even integrate an achievement badge system to encourage continued participation.
Despite the many design awards we’ve procured during our relationship with Monster, each new project is viewed as a challenge to surpass all previous standards. Monster’s cooperation in providing stunning imagery and meaningful insights into their customer’s needs is the catalyst for this successful relationship. The enthusiastic reception of the website by both our client and their teams is the icing on the cake.
