E-Catch is an electronic logbook for the fishery. The logbooks are based on a reporting obligation to the European Union. Every Member State is allowed to give its own interpretation. Nevertheless, several components are required to be reported in a certain way. Especially in England, there is need to train employees about the way they should handle the electronic reporting. E-Catch proposed to use an e-learning portal.
Pieter van Slooten, Head Automatization VisVeiling Urk from E-Catch: “First we wanted to create the e-learning portal ourselves because we also make software. After a while, we figured that creating a LMS requires a lot of effort (e.g. creating reports). That would take too much time. Therefore, we decided to use an extern system. Future Learning bv was a good solution. We can deliver educational material and cooperate with Future Learning to create courses.”
