Discover why On Demand Training exists, what your On Demand Training program should include, and how a NextGen LMS can support you in the process.

Creating an on demand training program is much easier if you use a NextGen LMS, as they are designed with the end-user in mind, and support On Demand by default. Looop is a next-generation learning platform that focuses on performance and productivity. Built for the modern workforce, Looop gives businesses the tools they need to best equip their staff to perform better and faster in their roles.

But even with the right tools in place, there is still room to improve your program. From our extensive experience delivering on demand training programs in a wide range of corporate environments, we have put together a shortlist of what we believe are the key practices you can use today to get the best out of your next Looop initiative:

1. Have A Digital Learning Strategy In Place

70% of employees turn to search engines to learn what they need for their jobs. Traditional L&D methods are failing to effectively train and keep up with the demand for instant information, since courses and classroom training cannot address moments of need and often require weeks to organize and implement, which results in poor long-term productivity, because the ‘learning’ cannot be applied right away when it’s actually needed.

Before implementing an on demand training program, it’s important to have some form of digital learning strategy in place. Digital has given organizations the chance to provide instant information in one place, but you need to be targeting your staff with context-rich resources in order to best support them.

Your digital resources should focus on the long-term career pathways of your staff so they can continuously be improving and becoming more productive. Look for solutions to everyday problems and unpack these into useful resources that can be accessed immediately. By providing solutions that help your workers to do their jobs better, you will find they are far more likely to engage with your learning platform and return to it because they have a reassurance that they can succeed and become more productive through your learning content.

Looop serves as a platform to provide a permanent bank of information, that is accessible anytime, anywhere. Creating digital resources in Looop takes a matter of minutes, saving your admin teams valuable time and costs, as resources are easy to update and keep relevant, so your employees know the information they are being given is up-to-date and aligned with the rest of the company.

2. Give Guidance At The Point-Of-Need

Your on demand training should focus on the points of need of your employees and address real issues in real-time. Rather than removing them from the workflow and taking them away from their desks to ‘learn’, use next-generation platforms like Looop to tackle these performance and capability issues by providing immediate answers.

Planning for those points-of-need is easier than you might expect; implementing a resources-first initiative with Looop can take just a few days. Once you’ve understood how to plan for those points-of-need and how to really make the most of your digital resources, you’ll find this approach immediately aligns L&D to the business and also creates an impact that traditional approaches only hope to achieve.

3. Connect Your Workers

Your employees are going to have a lot of questions about their roles, and whilst it’s important to unpack these into digital resources, it’s also extremely valuable connecting them with ‘experts’ in the company. Get your staff together to share valuable knowledge and know-how, and give them the opportunity to see how their role could progress, or the impact of doing well in the organization.

With Looop, you can easily schedule and manage face-to-face events, so those important connections won’t be missed due to time conflicts and busy schedules.

You can get your ‘experts’ together to share their experiences of their time within the company to create digital resources that really add value and give your employees 24/7 access to the knowledge of your experts.

4. Utilize Data And Feedback

You should be continuously looking for ways to improve your on demand training if you want to achieve better performance.

Ask your existing employees questions to shape your future digital resources. These could include:

  • What would have helped you in your role?
  • Do our resources address your day-to-day problems and issues?
  • Is there anything useful we’re missing?

Focus your efforts on constantly looking for ways to provide better training and make sure your employees know their views are valued and heard.

With Looop, users can rate every resource and add comments to provide further feedback. This allows L&D teams to be able to start new conversations straight away and put that feedback into practice. By implementing this process, you’ll promote a culture of sharing as well as giving your staff the confidence of knowing that their best interests are at the forefront of your training and that your organization is delivering the best on demand training possible.

Using our tips above and a next-generation platform like Looop that focuses on ‘better doing’ by using digital resources, we’re confident you’re on the right track to transforming your on demand training program and getting your employees up-to-speed quickly and efficiently.
