How and what an employee learns is influenced by more than just the subject matter: previous knowledge, environment, and attitude all impact an employee’s learning experience.
If you want to become the next Serena Williams, you don’t take one tennis lesson and expect to win Wimbledon. You hire a coach to train you over a long period of time, nurture your skills, shore up your knowledge base, and set you up to learn newer, harder techniques. Then, you win Wimbledon. Coaching in the workplace functions the same way as coaching in sports.
In the late 1990s the term e-learning first came into existence. Since then the evolution of e-learning has seen the advent of blended learning, learning as a form of talent management, and the rise and (now) the decline of the learning management system (LMS). Now we’re in the age of continuous learning. But what does this mean for the future of e-learning?
When we talk about artificial intelligence in pop culture, we tend to think about robots, and usually evil ones. But how often, when we think about AI, do we think about how artificial intelligence could help us learn?
According to a study conducted by Training magazine, companies averaged 53.8 hours of training per employee in 2015. That’s 13 hours more than in 2014. But how do we know that adding more time to the learning achieved better results?
We all know what we want from our corporate learning initiatives: learning that has business impact. Some corporate learning approaches claim to provide exactly that, but do they really? Microlearning is one of those approaches. Here, we’ll break down what microlearning is and how it stacks up against Adaptive Learning.
Global spending on corporate training is going up - as much as 2-5% - and yet rates of unconscious incompetence in the workforce are as high as ever. It’s getting more and more expensive to force employees into unfulfilling training that ultimately falls short.
When you take a training course to get your motorcycle license, does passing the course make you a master motorist? No, of course not. The course only means you have the most basic knowledge required to safely operate a motorcycle on the road.
Before we talk about which is better than the other, let’s talk about trends. In 2018, online corporate training programs are developing fast and becoming ever-more accessible.
While corporate e-learning reaps the benefits of technological advancement, there is always a risk that digital progress could negatively impact other essential skills.
As technology develops faster than ever, the digital skills shelf life gets shorter. Before your employees have mastered a new technology the next generation is already available with new features and skills to learn.
