For any iHasco course, I'd recommend creating an account so that you can easily pick up from where you left off the last time you engaged with a course.
For the purposes of the GDPR Essentials course, which I was completing alongside my role, this facility was essential.
The tools iHasco gave you in the dashboard also helped the transition through the course, barring the lack of a 'back' button.

Pros

The videos were crystal clear, supported by transcripts of the video content along with further resources should you feel the need to supplement your learning.

Cons

There was no back arrow. To revisit a certain screen, you had to go right back to the start and wade through the modules you'd already completed.

Quick to use and not too many questions. I did not like the minimum number of characters on one question where my response was covered in just one word

Pros

All the information is in a logical sequence and the short questions at each stage also help to ensure learning.

Cons

There was nothing that I found to be a problem with this software package and it does cover the essentials well.

iHasco eLearning Review

Reviewed on 16/9/2018

Pros

Nothing really. I suppose it's a blessing that you can hide the tab when you see how unhelpful this particular content is. I also like the goals of the people who made it - it is genuinely a very good aspiration to look after your staff's mental health, it's just terribly executed.

Cons

It seems all wrong for something purporting to help people deal with mental health issues. I'm sure the aim is good - remove the stigma around mental health etc, but it's all phrased as if you can just change your approach and be happy, not depressed. Telling people to replace negative thoughts with positive ones isn't massively helpful, for example. Also, I know it's a feature of the software, but I couldn't help imagining people with mental health problems thinking, 'OK, I'm being made to watch these videos - I'll actually turn the sound up and watch them all the way through' and then feeling even more hopeless afterwards.

Response from iHASCO

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest review after looking at our Mental Health Awareness Training.
The course has been designed to talk about mental health openly and to remind people that there are many small, daily tools that you can use to improve it, but not every option will work for all. We wanted to offer a range of insights and options for people who sit at all different places on the spectrum - including those that are maintaining good mental health and those that want some new things to try. We also offer awareness of - and signposting for - people that are struggling with poor mental health or mental illnesses.
We hope this course helps to highlight the importance of looking after yourself, and how your organisation can look after you.
Please do feel free to contact me directly if there is anything else I can help with or with any ideas that you feel could improve the course content and delivery. All feedback is greatly appreciated.

Quick & Effective Reassurance Refresher

Reviewed on 27/9/2018

Pros

It wasn't too time-consuming. It covered the basics of the subject and the test proved whether the participant knew the subject matter or not.

Cons

No particularly negative feedback. Did wonder whether a low score should lead to more in-depth training.

Pros

Very simple and user friendly.
Videos are short, concise and do not 'overload' the participant with detail.
You can dip in and dip out at your own pace.

Cons

Had an issue at start where it wouldn't run the videos. That was due to my browser. That wasn't apparent until I contacted the help desk (they responded very quickly mind you which is a big positive)

Pros

Various resources and elements to the training.
Transcript and subtitles to aid engagement/ understanding

Cons

If you're watching in full screen for video you have to click off that mode every time to be able to move to the next video which is slightly annoying.

The Account Manager has been very helpful and clearly explained how I could access the various administrator functions, which allows me to view progress, print off reports, email staff and add training to specific staff. The option for the administrator to try out a course before purchase is very helpful as it allows us to assess if it is suitable for staff.

Pros

I was very impressed with this software. The videos helped explain the theory. It was very clear and easy to understand. The instructor spoke slowly and clearly. Links to further information are very useful. Easy to sign on and return to training, or redo the training or sections of it are beneficial.

Cons

To be honest I can't really fault it. I have used iHasco now for a few years and they have improved the user experience.

The only problem we have experienced is sound, but after investigation it turned out that it wasn't the iHasco software, but our end, so we just needed to purchase headphones for some computers.

Great e-learning platform. User friendly, with brief and direct instructions.

Reviewed on 21/7/2018

Pros

The training structure was excellent, broken into small pieces of information for each video that followed the appropriate logical order. I found it really engaging that at the end of each section I was given a comprehensive question to answer. The summaries at the end of each video are a great learning asset, however in the fire awareness training the content was oversimplified during the summaries, which didn't help me memorise things as I needed. Also a great plus is the extra material, like handouts that appear during the lectures.

Cons

As I am not a native english speaker, I found the terminology of the fire awareness training difficult to learn and the narrations were happening TOO fast which didn't help at all.

Also, it would be easier if the whole transcript could be available for download in a word or pdf file, so people can run through the text more easily.

Response from iHASCO

Hi Eleftheria
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review after completing your training.
We do offer training with other language translations or you can enable the transcripts for each course if you would prefer to read the information.

Excellent. We can now train our whole work force in health and safety in a flexible and cost effective manner.

Pros

High quality visual aids to accompany the narrative

Cons

Reporting tool at the back end could be easier to use. I need to produce a report showing who has completed which courses and cannot do this in a single report. I have to download info. for each course individually and then combine it on a single spreadsheet, which is time consuming.

Response from iHASCO

Hi Sue,

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback!

I'm also pleased to be able to you know there is a consolidated training report you are able to produce which will give you everything you need in one report. Either myself or your account manager Sue Webb would be more than happy to talk you through how to do this.

If there is anything else I can help with please let me know.

We can invite a number of staff to undergo training that would normally need time and money in organising the relevant external trainers and making sure staff are available at a time to suit all.
This way is much easier and convenient and allows us to 'train' more people.

Pros

This was so easy to watch and listen - because of the ease and you going at your own pace you can stop and make as many notes or repeat if you prefer

Cons

You can get distracted with it being at your own pace - stop and start - its an important topic and you should concentrate on its completion as soon as possible

Pros

It's easy to use, it allows people to do the training at a time that works for them.

Cons

I was impressed with the extensive language menu, when I got bored with the English version I switched to Dutch and discovered:
1. I had to start from scratch:(
2. Much of the Dutch translation is absolute gibberish. (really, it's absolutely fine to only offer this product in English.. but don't pretend to offer a product that is multilingual when it's just a poor machine translation.)

Response from iHASCO

Good Morning Tom,
I was sorry to see that you had issues with the translations for this course.
Course content which is not English is currently machine translated and is provided for assistive purposes only so while we cannot guarantee it¿s accuracy we can and do take on board and implement corrections.
Please don¿t hesitate to let me know if there were specific words or phrases which did not make sense and we would be more than happy to get them corrected.
Please do feel free to contact me directly if there is anything else I can help with.
