June 24 Knowledge Platform Develops Online Learning on IT Security for IDA Singapore

Knowledge Platform, a leading provider of Online Learning, has completed the delivery of a course focused on Information Technology (IT) Security for the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA).

The goal of the Infocomm Security team at IDA was to develop an online learning that would help computer users both in the office and at home to learn more about IT Security. Specifically, the team’s two-fold purpose was to inform learners about the essential IT security practices to protect their computers, and highlight how negligence and inappropriate practices can result in adverse consequences. Based on the large number of people that the training is targeted at, IDA identified Online Learning as one way to quickly and cost effectively deploy this course1.

The online course uses an interactive story-based approach to illustrate how negligence or a lack of awareness about IT security can result in adverse consequences. Using both within and outside the office scenarios, the course puts learners through typical situations faced by computer users. Learners are called upon to make decisions based on various scenarios and view the consequences of their decisions. Interactive scenarios, engaging graphics and fun-filled assessments, ranging from crossword puzzles and word maze to board games and pictionary, ensure an enjoyable and memorable learning experience.

“We have worked very closely with IDA to help them to develop this course and we feel that Knowledge Platform’s strengths fit well with IDA’s needs for this projectEsaid Mahboob Mahmood, CEO of Knowledge Platform. “Our prior experience with Information Security content, knowledge of compliance and how to design Online Learning to fit compliance situations, and instructional design styles that appeal to the learner have all helped to provide increased value to the online course.
