The shift to digital learning is here. Learn about how we either embrace it or get left behind in this video.
- I have a couple of questions for you, and just a heads up, one or two of them might be painful. Are the traditional trainings that you're involved with, whether they be instructor-led or webinar-based or online learning, quite a bit shorter than they used to be? Have you been asked to build more job aids of late? This one's kind of a biggie. Have you ever felt that it's impossible to teach someone everything they need to know about a job? Do most of the people in your organization use the learning management system only when they absolutely have to? And last, have you noticed that even though you spend a ton of time and resources on a quality learning program, your learners still perceive them as a necessary evil to get done with as quickly as possible? Though your training director might not know, you know the traditional corporate training is broken, and it's not a matter of fixing it, either.
It's about shifting to a new strategy, which is digital learning. As a corporate training pro, you really don't have much of a choice but to skill up on digital learning. Here are a few reasons why. First, digital learning is often self-directed. That is, it's learning initiated by the learner, so it's more likely to make an impact on the learner's behavior, which is the goal of all training, of course. Second, the just in time nature of digital learning helps learners cope with a business that's continuously changing.
And lastly, if you look around at how the innovative companies are training their people, you'll notice the shift has already begun. You either hop on this big ship, and there's still plenty of room, or you run the risk of creating training that few people use. You want your training to make an impact, right? Well climb on board and let's take a tour of digital learning.
