What it's about
Corporate learning delivery systems are changing. Executives and learning professionals have much to consider, but the first and foremost is how to deliver quality training in the shifting sands among onsite, completely remote, and blended learning.
Corporate Learning: The Shift To Custom Remote Training Delivery In Unprecedented TimesLarge corporations have had years to weigh in-person training against digitally delivered learning. In the past, things moved slowly and carefully, as is typical in large organizations with complex budgeting processes. Learning teams formed committees that met for many months and sometimes years. Chief human resources officers (CHROs) and other executives, including the CFOs, reviewed findings and considered their options. Speed was often not the strongest driving force.
Utilizing Curriculum Mapping To Develop A Successful Customized Remote Learning StrategyWhen starting a project, L&D teams often begin with a pile of content of everything ever taught or trained in. But starting with content stalls a remote learning strategy before it ever gets off the ground. Curriculum mapping effectively organizes and prioritizes program goals, learning objectives, existing content, source materials, and potential assessment strategies. It produces a living, breathing document customized to the needs of a situation, which may take the form of a spreadsheet, table, chart, or even a mind map for brainstorming. The end result here isn’t prescribed deliverables but a focused organization of content topics and their objectives.
Custom Remote Learning Or Off-The-Shelf? A Classic Dilemma For L&D ManagersHow do you know when it’s time to invest in custom eLearning? Maybe the question is better asked in reverse: When does it not make sense to invest in custom digital learning? Companies usually don’t make the investment in custom digital learning for material that’s low-priority, generic, or focused mostly on compliance and checking a box that training has been completed. Smaller companies can accomplish this type of training with classroom presentations, often using slide decks from two decades ago followed by a written test. The test gets filed, the team member is deemed compliant, and the company can say it provided the training as mandated. Larger companies or those with a geographically diverse workforce can easily and inexpensively obtain courses on topics like blood-borne pathogens or lockout/tagout, which can be delivered digitally, with records being stored in an LMS.

How Can Custom Interactive Training Content Improve Remote Training Effectiveness?You know the feeling all too well—trudging through eLearning that’s as riveting as moss growing on bricks.

Maybe the learning even involves gamification, allowing you to compete against others and track progress with a leaderboard. What creates the fundamental gap between these two ends of the eLearning spectrum?
What Top Business Leaders Are Saying About Custom Remote Learning SolutionsCOVID-19 is a paradigmatic shift. Its true scope is an overused word but fits here: global.

From large corporations to small shops, city-sized institutions of higher education to preschools, trade associations to nonprofits, every organization’s model for what they’ve done in the past is on the move.
3 Examples Of Successful Curriculum MappingEffective curriculum mapping can be customized for any client’s needs. It doesn’t need to be formulaic and can be the cornerstone of effective Instructional Design. Curriculum mapping strategically organizes and prioritizes program goals, learning objectives, and existing source material. Because each of these categories lands on a spectrum of undeveloped to long-established, the process depends on the quantity and quality of what content and source material already exists. .
