What do your learners think about your courses? The truth is that some are finding your courses interesting, while some others might be bored. If you want to engage everyone, then you should focus on adaptive learning! However, adaptive learning is not about a one-size-fits-all approach, and SweetRush's Learning Experience Design Team knows this very well. Join them in this session and learn how to achieve maximum engagement without breaking the bank! The event is sponsored by eLearning Industry.

Most training treats everyone the same, which, let’s face it, bores some and loses others.

Does this sound familiar? Building leadership skills is a pressing business need, but your learners are all over the map, from 50-year-olds who’ve been managing for 20 years to 30-year-olds fresh out of MBA school. That is, replace “leadership skills” with nearly any performance improvement challenge and it’s the same story: Learners bring their unique interests, knowledge, and skills to the table. In other words, how you take that into account will impact the success of your training.

So, how do you create tailored and personalized learning experiences without stressing out your learning team and blowing your L&D budget?

Join three learning experience design and technology experts from SweetRush for an enlightening discussion of adaptive learning: how to avoid a one-size-fits-all approach without breaking your team or the bank. By incorporating multiple learning paths within training, you can ensure learners get the learning they want and need, and only what they want and need.

John, Clare, and Adrian will explore a variety of techniques for achieving adaptive learning, across a variety of modalities (eLearning, virtual reality, chatbots, nudges, even ILT/VILT), with plenty of practical examples and best practices.

And, you’ll experience such kind of learning first-hand in the webinar—your input will help shape the conversation!

The goal of adaptive learning, ultimately, is to provide an experience optimized for each learner. Consequently, this leads to happier learners, deeper impact, and ultimately, improved performance. More precisely, it’s as much a mindset as a methodology, and all three presenters have it in spades.

During this session, you will learn:

  • Why adaptive learning should be the norm, not the exception
  • Practical techniques for adding adaptive learning to different learning experiences, at varying levels of integration and technical complexity, with examples
  • The importance of gaining empathy with the audience, in order to identify where and how to apply adaptive learning
  • What it’s like to experience adaptive learning in VILT -- namely, this webinar!
The effectiveness of adaptive learning hinges on knowing the learners deeply, and their different motivations and experiences.
