Eye-Learning for eyeglass determination

Interactive e‑learning with multimedia content


Eye-Learning – a joint project

Young grad­u­ate optom­e­try engi­neers and adma­go GmbH devel­oped the ini­tia­tive and con­tent for this inno­v­a­tive e‑learning pro­gramme and tech­no­log­i­cal­ly imple­ment­ed these ideas.

Eye-Learn­ing, a project for opti­cal lens design, is focused on a tar­get group that is or would also like to be pro­fes­sion­al­ly involved in optics and optom­e­try. Spec­ta­cle and refrac­tion mea­sure­ment rep­re­sents a supreme dis­ci­pline that can only be opti­mal­ly prac­tised with con­tin­u­ous training.

The very min­i­mal selec­tion of teach­ing mate­ri­als that dis­cuss refrac­tion mea­sure­ment in the­o­ry and prac­tice make the nec­es­sary train­ing more dif­fi­cult. Instead, com­mon literature/works pro­vide the­o­ret­i­cal and schemat­ic approach­es. There is no knowl­edge train­ing in the form of appli­ca­tions, and the dete­ri­o­ra­tion of knowl­edge is cor­re­spond­ing­ly high.

The innovation of Eye-Learning

What makes Eye-Learn­ing spe­cial for the user?

  1. Eye-Learn­ing is adapt­ed to real-life treat­ment sce­nar­ios.
  2. Eye-Learn­ing enables train­ing at any time and any­where as it has been devel­oped as an online appli­ca­tion. You sim­ply log in online and begin.
  3. The large amount of exper­i­men­tal data means that every pro­gramme sequence is var­ied and there­fore sophis­ti­cat­ed.
  4. Because of the inte­grat­ed train­ers that can be called up at any time (help func­tion), the pro­gramme is sim­ple and self-explana­to­ry.
  5. The inter­ac­tive mul­ti­ple-choice sys­tem guar­an­tees fun while learn­ing, an indi­vid­ual learn­ing speed and imme­di­ate feed­back on learn­er suc­cess.
  6. The doc­u­ment­ed assess­ment after each chap­ter serves as proof of qual­i­fi­ca­tion for employ­ers or edu­ca­tion­al institutes.

The benefits of Eye-Learning

  1. Eye-Learn­ing guar­an­tees high learn­er suc­cess by:
    – ease of use (mul­ti­ple-choice, feed­back, help)
    – high flex­i­bil­i­ty (speed, loca­tion and time)
    – the use of the most mod­ern technology
    This means that knowl­edge can be acquired, then con­sol­i­dat­ed and devel­oped via con­tin­u­ous training.
  2. Eye-Learn­ing guar­an­tees low costs. There are no fur­ther train­ing costs in the form of trav­el, accom­mo­da­tion, cater­ing, sem­i­nar and employ­ee absence expenses.
  3. Eye-Learn­ing guar­an­tees increased cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and there­fore a com­pet­i­tive edge.
    Cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion is achieved by a quick diag­no­sis and a low error rate when mea­sur­ing the spec­ta­cles of the cus­tomers. The pre­ven­tion of errors is also a pri­or­i­ty tar­get of qual­i­ty man­age­ment systems.
  4. Con­tin­u­ous fur­ther train­ing ensures high employ­ee moti­va­tion. This is achieved, for exam­ple, by a low rate of uncer­tain­ty when mea­sur­ing spec­ta­cles. Accord­ing to a study at opti­cians’ busi­ness­es, it is known that some­times only one employ­ee with­in the busi­ness is involved large­ly in spec­ta­cle mea­sure­ment. If this mem­ber of staff is in a cus­tomer con­sul­ta­tion or away (because of a hol­i­day, ill­ness or train­ing), the oth­er employ­ees attempt to impro­vise, car­ry­ing out the spec­ta­cle mea­sure­ment with a high degree of uncer­tain­ty. This often takes an exces­sive amount of time and unfor­tu­nate­ly does not yield opti­mal results for the cus­tomer. The employ­ees are then frus­trat­ed and demo­ti­vat­ed as the bud­get for fur­ther train­ing is also reg­u­lar­ly limited.
  5. The doc­u­ment­ed eval­u­a­tion in the Eye-Learn­ing pro­gramme after each chap­ter can be used as proof of qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the employee’s files, a tool to moti­vate employ­ees and as proof in the qual­i­ty man­age­ment sys­tem of the company.

Eye-Learn­ing is use­ful for all phas­es of a company’s inter­nal knowl­edge man­age­ment sys­tem: » set­ting knowl­edge objec­tives » knowl­edge iden­ti­fi­ca­tion » knowl­edge acqui­si­tion » knowl­edge devel­op­ment » knowl­edge preser­va­tion and » knowl­edge evaluation.
