  There are few intangible things that are as sought after in the corporate world as good company culture. Leaders know that their organizations’ ultimate success and growth is dependent upon culture, not solely, but majorly. F. John Reh wrote, “Company culture is important because it can make or break your company. Companies with an adaptive culture that is aligned to their business goals routinely outperform their competitors. Some studies report the difference at 200% or more.” Companies having exemplary culture are ones that not only survive indefinitely, but profit when other organizations are going under. The definition of “corporate culture” varies from person to person. Some individuals believe culture refers only to shared practices and values. Others interpret company … Continue Reading »

Can Learning Management Systems Foster Experiential Knowledge in the Workplace?

blog_8_4_thumbnail

  In your personal opinion, what type of value does experiential learning hold? Before you answer, there are two things you must have understanding of: what this type of learning is and what it can accomplish. First, experiential learning is a process that facilitates the acquisition of specific knowledge and skills through real-life experience. Second, this type of learning has the power to transform employees’ attitudes about training, increase knowledge retention, and create a learning culture in the workplace, among other things. What is your estimation of experiential learning’s value now? If it’s anything less than extremely high, you are underestimating this organic-but-powerful form of learning. What Does Experiential Learning Look Like in the Workplace? Let’s go a little deeper … Continue Reading »

Why Micro Learning Is the Future of Corporate Training

micro_learning_thumbnail

  What does “micro learning” mean to you? Don’t be intimidated by the term. Although it sounds official it is something that you probably engage in quite often – perhaps even on a daily basis. Micro learning is not a new concept, but it’s a powerful one. According to eLearning Industry’s contributor Asha Pandey, micro learning consists of “short, 3- to 5-minute focused learning nugget(s)…designed to meet a specific learning outcome.” Practically, micro learning could entail a learner watching a tutorial on YouTube or reading a 300- to 500-word educational article. Basically, any type of learning that takes place in succinct spurts and is therefore easy to digest may be considered micro learning. Micro Learning: the Key to Information Retention … Continue Reading »

How Effective are Video-Based Training Courses?

Video based training

Training is like oxygen to a company. Without it, a company dies. With a healthy amount of it, an organization will not only survive but will also thrive. Most company leaders are fully aware of this and try to offer employee training, even if only during the onboarding process. While it’s good that employers provide training for their employees, it doesn’t mean that training is always effective. Some methods of training delivery are simply more impactful than others. It’s amazing how the same exact training content is more effective delivered through one method as opposed to another. Traditionally, employers have delivered training in-person, but today’s organizational leaders are wising up to the fact that, like it or not, technology plays … Continue Reading »

The Link Between BYOD and Increased Productivity

BYOD Productivity

Of all the trends in technology today, BYOD, short for “bring your own device,” is among the most popular. This makes sense considering nearly 100 percent of employed individuals own at least one mobile device that they bring to work on a daily basis. Naturally, people want to use their device(s) at the office or wherever it is they work. Accessing mission critical information, including eLearning and other online learning resources, with an employee’s own device whenever and wherever they may be reduces a barrier that limits adoption and engagement. IBM MobileFirst gives an excellent definition of BYOD: “Bring your own device (BYOD) is an IT policy where employees are allowed or encouraged to use their personal mobile devices—and, increasingly, notebook … Continue Reading »
