With a worldwide membership of 67,000 cardiovascular providers, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) is crucial in providing impactful educational content. This significance was underscored in 2016 when the World Health Organization (WHO) presented a substantial request for a mobile-first design educational curriculum, a new challenge for ACC. This endeavor marked ACC’s first foray into democratized education products and required expertise in mobile-first design, a domain they hadn’t previously explored. Acknowledging the need for creative and collaborative expertise, ACC explored multiple options through RFPs and eventually connected with Infopro Learning at the Brandon Hall event in Washington, DC.
Infopro Learning’s learning journey map, designed with input from various experts, including learning scientists, left a lasting impression, confirming their suitability for the project. The resulting NCD Academy, a part of this collaboration, has garnered immense engagement worldwide, reaching millions of individuals. This partnership has yielded two notable outcomes, internally and externally:
- ACC’s innovation design team has experienced remarkable growth and learning, with Infopro Learning’s guidance fostering the development of various interactive formats, gamification strategies, and content repurposing techniques.
- The partnership’s success is evidenced by the acclaim received for the educational initiatives, with the largest curriculum developed by Infopro Learning being hailed as one of ACC’s finest educational accomplishments, even within a niche disease topic.
“In my early online education journey, I recognized my limitations in crafting effective adult learning experiences. Infopro Learning emerged as the solution I was seeking. Their astounding capabilities in learning design, media resources, and customer service have propelled us further than any lecture or reading could. Our symbiotic partnership is pivotal to our progress—without it, we wouldn’t be where we are today, especially in the challenging task of motivating learners in fields like medicine.
Infopro Learning taught me intentional design and the power of purpose-driven creations and designs. They are the compass guiding us through uncharted territories of education.”
– Chris Keenan, Learning Architect at the American College of Cardiology (ACC)
Partnering with Infopro Learning has been truly gratifying for ACC. This collaboration fuels our commitment to continuous learning and fostering a capable workforce. Excitedly, we look forward to a lasting collaboration with them that advances workforce development and education.
