JetBlue Airways: Totara Learning Platform

To improve student experience and scale the administrative oversight of JetBlue Scholars. This success story examines how e-learning experts at Webanywhere were able to merge core Totara functionality with custom developments for the 5th largest domestic air carrier in the United States.

About JetBlue

JetBlue is New York's Hometown Airline® and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 32 million customers a year to 97 cities in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America. 

The company founded JetBlue Scholars. JetBlue Scholars eliminates the complexity of higher education and provides a clearer path for degree completion.  The program utilizes low cost, high quality alternative college credit options including new technology-based learning platforms.

Their biggest challenge was that such a program has never existed before, so the systems to manage the program were not available.

What JetBlue Needed From Their ELearning Platform

The solution needed to be cost effective and adaptable to the needs of the JetBlue Scholars program as well as being in line with the branding and company ethos of Jetblue.

The aims of the project were to:

  • Drive a learning culture and degree programme for JetBlue employees
  • Provide custom elements to core Totara functionality
  • Put learning into the context of performance management, talent and development
  • Support individuals owning their own learning and managers supporting their development
  • Be able to scale and add features over time.
