Selecting The Right Learning Technology For Your Needs

Reading this eBook, will help you decide if you truly need the investment to a new learning tool.

People expect learning materials and resources to be immediately available (Google) and at their fingertips (mobile). They want to share their experiences with their networks and learn from others (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). And they expect those experiences to be short, engaging, and interactive (YouTube, apps, games).

And yet, many current learning and training solutions look like the same old thing: Week-long classroom training events, hour-long self-paced eLearning experiences locked behind the walls of an unfriendly Learning Management System. People want the next generation, and yet, L&D delivers on the promise from a few generations back. What can teams do to get current?

These new behaviors have spurred investment in new technologies in the L&D space and resulted in a plethora of new companies and shiny, new products including microlearning platforms, interactive video authoring tools, virtual role-play platforms, curation tools, content aggregators, and more.

In the eBook Selecting The Right Learning Technology For Your Needs you’ll be taking a look at some of these solutions and how these solutions will fit into your overall strategy and structure, particularly if you’re architecting your overall solution for results.

    Ooh, look! New and shiny objects! It certainly sounds appealing to add a few new tools to the arsenal. After all, this is what the learners want! But before you run out and invest in one of these new shiny objects, consider that only 37% of training is applied on the job even after it's gamified, videoed, and socialized.
  • 4 New Solution Categories To Consider
    OK, so now that you’ve done some of the preliminary ground work to think about how new technologies might impact your team, you’re ready to start exploring some of the specific tools and offerings that are out there on the market.
  • Hope Isn't A Method
    Today, too many of us develop training that begins and ends with the delivery of content. We then hope it will have the desired result. Instead, we need to think beyond the event itself and architect solutions that will drive the types of tangible results your business needs.
