We both understood that future success stories would stem from diverse teams, purpose-driven change, and revolutionary innovation. That is what we set out do with our collaboration. It is a big undertaking and the team was excited and dedicated to start producing something spectacular. Through activities, assignments and discussions with our Learning Design team, they discovered how to communicate their learning goals in ways that are social and engaging.
The program is a great example of how to leverage the possibilities of the platform to deliver a learning experience that excites learners, engages curiosity, and supports communication.
We’re excited about the launch and looking forward to seeing them succeed.
Here is what Santander Brazil’s Patricia Araque had to say about their goals and vision for this program.
What it is you’ve set out to achieve with the Explorer program?
Explorer is a pre-seed program for university entrepreneurs. During 12 weeks we help them to develop their ideas and turn them into a solution that contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals 2030. The students become actors of change through the building of economically sustainable projects in different industries, sectors and types of organisations.
Why did you choose Claned to help you execute this vision?
Explorer is a mix of online training and community, both things are key to help students to achieve their goals. Claned makes possible the kind of social learning we need to promote peer to peer learning and at the same time, help us leveraging the blended learning experience we deploy in partnership with the universities part of the program.
How do you feel about the result of the process?
We are more than happy. These last weeks that we’ve dept into Claned features and worked with the team in the design of our learning path have been mind-blowing. Now our approach to the design of learning experience is more social and more collaborative. That is going to have a huge positive impact on how the Explorers achieve their goals.
