Training on the go
EVOLVING TRAINING PROGRAMS
Training managers are unanimous: the proliferation of PCs, tablets, smartphones, collaborative platforms and social networks has transformed training departments. Learners are looking for more collaborative tools that promote learning on the go. Indeed, a pedagogical evolution is also underway, with training content becoming more participative.
Companies have well understood this fundamental trend and are keen to combine more and more teaching methods to offer truly blended learning courses. The use of these methods mainly benefits learners who gain greater flexibility to follow their different courses. The methods are better adapted to their working pace. User experience and learner engagement will only improve.
PROLIFERATION OF THE MULTI-DEVICE
The latest studies all point in the same direction, training must integrate multiple channels to appeal to new generations of learners:
- The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon: the new generations see less distinction between the private and professional spheres.
- Training must be delivered to the greatest number of people, whatever its material constraints (displacement, lack of a good quality network, convenience of access to training…).
- Providing the best type of learning, which is highly personalized according to the individual.
Learners are keen to use new technologies and want to access their training according to their availability, regardless of the tool that allows them to access it.The training term “ATAWADAC” is increasingly commonplace: Any Time, Any Where, Any Device, Any Content. To ensure the success of these courses and a good learning experience, it is essential to apply a User-Centric approach to encourage the learner to invest in his or her training program.
