what we do

  • workplace e-learning (i.e. “Profitability through Sustainability”)
  • strategies to boost engagement, efficiency and innovation
  • social media planning & community management
  • your content made into an engaging, social e-learning experience

About our workplace e-learning: Employers enroll 25-200 employees in a 20 hour online course. Your company is invited into a private online classroom where employees participate at their convenience.

Participants discuss articles and videos from sustainability thought-leaders and share reflections via social media. The learning becomes personalized through the selection of industry-specific and job-specific discussions of sustainability. Participants ask questions of authors, suggest resources for colleagues and become leaders within their learning communities. Employers receive weekly reports describing each participant’s new skills and knowledge.

Exercises are completed using the tools participants choose to learn: presentation platforms, wikis, blogs, bookmarking, note taking, photo galleries, video channels, mind-mapping or online meeting facilitation. Hopefield engages your employees with sustainability so they can contribute to positive change at your company.

7 steps to go to sustainability 2.0

I’m now taking my second online course from Natalie Robinson. I felt I needed formal training to be more effective in what I was doing, and the online courses fit the bill perfectly.

Natalie has found just an amazing collection of expert individuals and organizations in the field that inspire and challenge me. A combination of readings and videos, radio documentaries and interactive web sites… laptop has become my classroom and the world and new ideas are literally a click away.

I firmly believe we humans are going to dig ourselves out of the current environmental hole we’ve created by sharing information and motivating and inspiring vast numbers of people, through advocacy and training. Can we harness the power of Twitter, Facebook and all the rest to do this? I think we have no choice.
