Do you mean Moodle is already in place or that the company is investigating whether it should or not?
If it's the latter then I'd go for a focus group in the company. Find out what issues they currently have with training and then show how Moodle will solve them. Focus on security (if it's a compulsory test like Occupational Health and Safety, show how individual machines can be identified), speed/ease of use (automatic marking, conditional activities) and cost (open source plus running costs vs commercial products). These seem to be the key things the company will be looking at. Get this small group round a table and give them a presentation. It might well be that further issues need to be tackled.
By keeping it small it reduces the impact on the company and makes it easy to schedule. A big company won't mind a few people having a meeting - easy for a buy-in.
Thanks for your insights. I could use them when I market Moodle soon.
We already have Moodle set-up in the company for one of our training courses but I don't think people know about it.
I plan to release this as a team learning/training substitute since most teams spend too much time training new hires about the same thing. Of course, I could give that reason for them to use Moodle, but I expect them to say that training one-on-one is easier since questions are answered automatically. This is what I expect to be the major concern regarding Moodle training, so any idea about how to overcome this barrier?
Otherwise you can search for "Enterprise" in this course (Lounge) and in "Using Moodle" http://moodle.org/course/view.php?id=5. Try the advanced search facility http://moodle.org/mod/forum/search.php?search=&id=55 resp. http://moodle.org/mod/forum/search.php?search=&id=5.
1-on-1 training is a waste of time if the information shifts. If this is their line of resistance then it's easily addressed. You install a Wiki in Moodle and get the current staff to write down their job tasks into it. Then, new hires can see what the procedures are. Once they've had a look through the system they could be given some simple tests to check understanding and then, any issues that arise would be solved by a subsequent meeting. This has two advantages (a) it makes the company actually write down their procedures, (b) most procedures are fairly standard and so only the tricky, specifc ones would need further talking. It saves time and money - your selling point for the company.
The only issue I can see is that if you are going to set this up you'll need to get the company to consider some form of knowledge management strategy which is another whole can of worms!
