This week, the ITC-ILO officially launched the Experientia-designed website Compass: the right direction for learning and training.
The site is a toolkit comprising 60 methodologies, with the aim of diffusing learning and training knowledge and tools within the ITC-ILO organisation.
Experientia conducted a complete redesign of the ITC-ILO methods library (the Compass) of tools that can be used during training sessions and in the field. The redesign updates the visual look and feel of the Compass tool, as well as the methods themselves, refreshing the communications style of the contents, and developing a new system for cataloguing and navigating through them.
The ITC-ILO is the training arm of the UN’s International Labour Organisation. Based in Turin, Italy, ITC-ILO runs training, learning and capacity development services for governments, employers’ organizations, workers’ organisations and other national and international partners in support of Decent Work and sustainable development. The Compass is a project of the Centre’s DELTA unit. DELTA is made up of a team of specialists who combine expertise in learning and knowledge sharing methodologies with professional backgrounds in international development.
The Compass uses the metaphor of a navigational instrument to guide people through a repository of participatory learning, training and knowledge sharing methods. The new site significantly improves the information architecture and organisation of the available content, ensuring that the methods are easily findable, and offering guidance on the kinds of learning and training situations each method is suited to.
The Experientia team included Yosef Bercovich, Erin O’Loughlin and Gabriele Santinelli, under the guidance of the partner for communications Mark Vanderbeeken.

Last year Experientia designed the interface of an ATM of UniCredit, a major Italian bank. The interface is now rolled out across the bank’s ATMs in Italy, to great satisfaction of the bank and the customers alike, since interaction speed is much faster and error rates went down dramatically. Last year UniCredit and Experientia also […]
