Crown Packaging - Technical training

Crown is the world leader in packaging technology. With operations in 41 countries employing over 21,000 people and net sales of $8.3 billion, they provide global breadth as well as regional expertise. They also develop and provide world-class performance standards and innovations to the industry from their technology centres.

Crown Technology commissioned Walkgrove to develop a bespoke e-learning program and assessment to blend with and enhance their current classroom-based training on welding.  The seaming and welding of metal cans correctly is a key process in the packaging industry – and mistakes are expensive and potentially dangerous.  A secondary objective of this important project is to prove the concept of e-learning for delivering consistent learning messages across the whole of the organisation and also for conducting and monitoring web-based assessments.

Key requirements included the facility for in-house editing of the modules and ensuring that the content could be translated into other languages.

Walkgrove’s approach: 

  • Uses a balanced mix of information-based content screens and engaging interactions
  • Integrates effective use of self assessment activities throughout, adopting a range of  interactivity types so that learners can build confidence in their knowledge
  • Uses a straightforward delivery style, making effective use of appropriate illustrations, diagrams and animations
  • Adopts a simple and intuitive navigational approach, free from complex branching
  • Includes a bespoke LMS for tracking usage by a world-wide audience

Walkgrove has worked with Crown Technology for 19 years; developing technical training solutions using all modern media.
