Universal Robots Academy, developed by Universal Robots and Cadpeople, has been shortlisted for the internationally prestigious Learning Technologies Awards in the category “Excellence in the design of learning content – international commercial sector”. The winner will be announced at a gala dinner in London on November 29th, and we can’t wait!

What makes Universal Robots Academy a great piece of digital learning is the interactivity in the user experience – user involvement is deeply ingrained in every aspect of UR Academy, resulting in an astonishingly effective learning experience. Becoming a robot programmer, something that used to take weeks or months of training, can now be accomplished in just 87 minutes with UR Academy. Try it out for yourself!

Martin Woersaa Abildgaard, Technical Training Specialist at Universal Robots, says about the shortlisting: “In less than a year, 13.000 users from 80 countries has signed up for our online training, and we have received an enormous amount of positive feedback – so we are already convinced that we have created a good product that creates value for our customers and business partners. But to be among the finalists for a Learning Technologies Award is naturally great for us, since it is an acknowledgement of our hard work and craftsmanship from leading learning experts.

It’s our second shortlisting in as many years – but these shortlistings don’t exactly grow on trees. How did we become a pioneer in digital learning? Thomas Juel, Partner & CSO at Cadpeople, explains: “We specialize in creating fun and engaging learning experiences. We translate complex learning content to intuitive and visually appealing courses that are easy to access, no matter your qualifications – and we take advantage of the newest digital tools. We realised several years ago that we could apply our understanding of communications and digital technology in the field of digital learning – so today, digital learning is one of our key business areas.
