Reality Learning’s collaboration with RMIT Europe and the European Institute of Technology (EIT) Urban Mobility took out four awards at Australia’s 2022 national award program, including placing first for Best eLearning Project.

Celebrating excellence in online learning, the LearnX 2022 awards recognised the nominated short courses for their innovative and multimedia rich approaches to driving forward healthier, more liveable and sustainable cities. 

The winning course that gained Platinum for both Best eLearning Project and Best eLearning Project for Industry, Urban Mobility for Liveability, features a short five-week program that equips urban designers and city planners with the skills they need to transform urban environments for healthier communities.

Reality Learning Director Judith Hewitson said it was a great testament to the team and RMIT’s academics, including Associate Dean Andrew Butt, Associate Professor Melanie Davern, and Professor Sarah Bekessy, for bringing these to life.

“Built and delivered during the hight of Covid-19 in 2021, these programs featured remote filming under great pressure, alongside interactive multimedia to capture and share RMIT’s leading research and insights in the most compelling and accessible way,” Judith said.

“We worked incredibly hard across time zones to do this, and I couldn’t be more proud of our team who drove this forward amidst the pressures of a pandemic, in particular noting lead learning designers Dr Katie Vasey and Howard Errey, alongside our talented film director, Daniel Bury.”

Both courses that received awards, Urban Mobility for Liveability and Bringing Urban Nature into the Cities of Tomorrow, feature conversational and bite-sized video materials, interactive learning exercises, and student lead reflections for enhanced peer-to-peer learning.

Reality Learning is pleased to continue supporting RMIT and EIT in building their suite of short online courses with the latest two launched in Barcelona last week at the Tomorrow. Mobility World Congress in collaboration with the New European Bauhaus.
