Know-how on demand
With a new Virtual Academy, TDM Systems is increasingly focusing on the transfer of knowledge
"It is important to us that our customers and users are able to take full advantage of their TDM solutions," said Uwe Damberg, Manager of Service & Projects at TDM Systems. For example, after the first training session, which includes the installation of the application, the Tübingen-based Tool Lifecycle Management (TLM) experts continue to accompany their customers by offering a comprehensive range of training courses. The training courses in Tübingen, as well as regular webinars, are available and offered to all users.
TDM Systems is now offering the TDM Virtual Academy (TDMVA) to customers with a software service and software update contract. In video courses, tutorials and webinar recordings, registered users can acquire new knowledge about TLM and their software application and refresh skills already learned.
The centerpiece of the Virtual Academy is the personalized dashboard. Here, at a glance, users can view which courses and lessons they have already visited. In addition, they receive learning proposals that are tailored to their individual learning progress.
"In order to motivate the TDMVA participants and make learning more fun, there are quizzes for many courses and lessons," reports Patrick Kaupp, who supervises the Virtual Academy at TDM. "This allows users to test their learning progress in an entertaining way." As a reward, the user receives points and badges which are displayed on the dashboard.
The official start of the TDM Virtual Academy is January, 2017. Users will then be able to find video courses and webinars in German and English for their training. The offer will not be static, but will be supplemented with new content on a continuous basis.
