Greencubator, an NGO dedicated to fostering a sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem, low-carbon innovations, and green economy development in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, envisions a mission of connecting people with a sustainable future.
In a recent conversation, Valeriia, a project manager at Greencubator, shared her feedback on how Workademy's Learning Management System (LMS), has positively impacted the educational journey for green startups.
Greencubator and the Need for Workademy
Greencubator, which supports green startups in Ukraine, initially operated offline. However, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing war prompted a shift in their approach. Recognizing the challenges, Valeriia highlighted the importance of adopting an LMS to help startups navigate these obstacles. In response, Workademy proved to be a valuable solution, providing the flexibility for entrepreneurs to continue learning from different locations, even under difficult circumstances.
"Workademy has truly been a transformative partner for us. Its adaptability to our unique needs has taken our educational initiatives to new heights."
Tailoring Courses to Local Needs
Valeriia shared how the language barrier was a significant challenge for Ukrainian startups. To address this, Greencubator opted to create its own platform with courses in Ukrainian. The decision to collaborate with Workademy was influenced by its user-friendly experience for administrators and the ability to customize courses to meet specific language requirements.
Real-time Progress Tracking
One of the key advantages highlighted by Valeriia was the real-time tracking of startup progress. The ability to monitor individual participant activities, including test results, time spent on video lectures, and engagement in discussions, has proven invaluable for Greencubator. This feature not only aids in effective management but also ensures that participants are actively involved in the learning process.
"The ability to track progress in real-time has empowered us to manage our programs more effectively and ensure the active engagement of our participants, even in challenging circumstances."
Flexible Enrollment Management
Valeriia highlighted Workademy's feature that allows the creation and management of enrollment vouchers. This enables Greencubator to control access to courses, especially closed ones, ensuring that only intended participants are enrolled. The flexibility to generate codes for different courses or campaigns simplifies the enrollment process for administrators.
Comprehensive Reporting for Stakeholders
Valeriia emphasized that detailed metrics, such as participant performance, test results, and engagement statistics, are crucial for providing comprehensive insights to stakeholders and donors. This not only shows the impact of the program but also helps make the right improvements.
"It's essential for us to create a product or service that's better than everything else in the market. For example, we increased our course completion rates from 6-7% to 12% thanks to insights provided by Workademy's analytics tool."
Continuous Improvement and Feedback Loop
Valeriia talked about how Workademy is always trying to get better. She liked that they listen to what users say, solve problems fast, and add new tailored features.
"What sets Workademy apart is their commitment to listening to user feedback and consistently adapting to meet our evolving needs."
In this article, Valeriia provided valuable insights into the dynamic relationship between Workademy and Greencubator. It highlighted the significance of a user-friendly interface, customization features, and robust reporting tools, that have not only sustained educational initiatives during challenging times but have taken them to new levels. As Greencubator continues to shape the next generation of green startups, Workademy is a reliable partner, always ready to change and come up with new ideas to make things better.
