The “institution strategy” category “rewards an overall digital policy whose results can be seen in several fields of the institution’s activities (administration, communication, learning etc.)”. SKEMA won the prize for setting up the K2 Learning Platform.

In 2016, there was a project to replace the then learning platform to develop it in line both with our multi-campus strategy and our pedagogical needs for programmes that promoted knowledge management.
The platform’s objectives are clear and ambitious:
- To enable both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities for all our campuses (France China, the US and Brazil) for audiences of up to 2500 simultaneously.
- Offer access to a complete range of collaborative tools for communication and co-creation using a learning platform.
K2 is a Moodle type platform. One of its main attractions is its co-integration with Microsoft 365 Online. The project also uses external suppliers (integrator Edunao, infrastructure Alterway).
“K2 affects about 10 000 users in all and is used in 2500 different learning activities over the school’s six campuses. K2 never sleeps, with between 150 to 250 participants connected simultaneously at all times and peaks of activity with 2,500 participants. Several multi-campus seminars have already taken place with K2 (a hackathon in September 2017 with 1,800 participants)” explained the prize giving committee.
