True Aussie lamb customers get online resources

Sheep Central, October 29, 2021

AUSTRALIAN lamb and beef customers now have access to a suite of online learning modules to improve knowledge and provide education and inspiration on working with Australian red meat.

Meat & Livestock Australia has launched the True Aussie Beef & Lamb Academy, building on already successful training programs, but also allowing learners access via their smartphones or computers.

The Academy on Smartphone

MLA’s global business manager Josh Anderson said MLA is very excited to launch the first digital version of our highly regarded knowledge and education training program’.

“The Academy will reach a wider audience and is optimised for smartphones, allowing an opportunistic style of learning when people have a spare five minutes,” he said.

Training is delivered in topical, bite-sized learning modules, partnering with a new micro-learning provider EdApp.

MLA said the academy courses are easier to develop, update and distribute compared to traditional eLearning courses and completion and retention rates are dramatically higher, with the ease of development allowing courses to be customised and co-branded, giving companies the ability to provide a tailored training experience.

“Given the scale of red meat exports, we recognise companies can never possesses the resources to physically train or reach every customer or staff member across our global markets,” Mr Anderson said.

“Online delivery of training has advanced to a point whereby we can now reach customers and consumers via scalable education initiatives online – something the academy does very well through delivering translatable content to a wide audience.

“The initial suit of training courses is now available and range from beef cooking and butchery techniques for chefs to Australian food safety systems and industry facts,” he said.

“I encourage anyone who wishes to trial the system to please contact me.”
