Technology-based training often suffers from the "Terrible Too's of Training." The training itself violates the fundamental rules of adult learning, and consequently doesn't drive business results back on the job. As a result, trainers need to address two major issues—creating compelling content and post-training follow-up.
Today, revolutionary new video technologies are enabling organizations to effectively train and coach at-a-distance using high-impact, low-cost, TV-style video solutions:
• Compelling video-based e-learning can now be created by anyone using a low-cost depth-sensing camera adapted from the video game industry and an inexpensive cloud-based service. And this video can be produced anywhere, from an ordinary office to a hotel room to a home.
• Boring disembodied-voice webcasts can now be personalized by integrating the presenter with the content—in real time and presented from any location.
• Instead of depending on overburdened supervisors to coach learners after training, video solution now exist that manage a comprehensive coaching-at-a-distance process from a central location.
The result is a revolutionary reduction in the cost to create high-end, high-impact video e-learning, and an answer to the problem of supervisors not coaching and reinforcing training content.
What if HR could provide a set of learning metrics that could be plugged into the corporate scorecard? What if HR could take immediate action on these analytics to make adjustment to training at the speed of business? And, what if HR could finally tie training content to business performance? Making this a reality takes a Google analytics approach to measuring learning.
During this webinar, we’ll answer these questions through a series of real-world use cases that show learning data aligned to functional performance indicators. You’ll leave with the analytical tools you need to prove the ROI of your training initiatives.
All too often learning designers are trying to use 20th century models and methodologies to solve 21st century problems. It’s time to rethink how we design learning to address the challenges of today's 24/7/365, global, and mobile world. And in doing so, it’s time to take advantage of the opportunity to leverage proven models and methodologies from other disciplines such as Six Sigma, Lean, Agile, Business Process Redesign, Critical Mistake Analysis and others. From this webinar, participants will develop a deeper understanding of 21st century organizational challenges, examine the strengths and weaknesses of a wide range of methodologies and models when applied to learning design, and explore eight new 21st century learning design principles.
Are you evaluating a mobile solution for your company's learning needs?
Are you interested in seeing a learning and performance support tablet app in action?
Mobile Learning, or mLearning, means a lot of different things to different people. But today it is clear that mLearning involves a lot more things than just delivering eLearning on smartphones. mLearning involves a number of key factors:
- Personalized access
- Context- and location-aware content
- Proximity to point of performance
- Both formal and informal models
- Communication and collaboration
At this Demo Days session, we will present NetDimensions Talent Slate, an award-winning, native mobile learning app for iPad® and Android™ tablets.
NetDimensions Talent Slate won the Gold Award at the Brandon Hall Group 2013 Excellence in Technology Awards for Best Advance in Performance Support Technology.
At the Point of Need
NetDimensions Talent Slate is designed specifically for tablets to enable mobile learning and on-the-job performance support based on the NetDimensions Talent Suite. NetDimensions Talent Slate relies on an intuitive, search-based navigation to provide on-demand access to learning materials for online or offline use.
NetDimensions Talent Slate allows users to navigate all the mLearning content and information stored in the NetDimensions Talent Suite via an intuitive search-based interface that accesses news, courses, reference materials, competencies, training records, and other learning or talent-related information and knowledge assets.
Online & Offline Use
Search results from the NetDimensions Talent Suite are always available online and can also be tagged for offline use. This means that reference materials can be downloaded directly onto the tablet for use at the point of need, and that courses can be downloaded and then run on the tablet even when connectivity might not be readily available. Smart synchronization enables SCORM results to be synchronized with the NetDimensions Talent Suite when Internet connectivity becomes available.
NetDimensions Talent Slate provides options for device encryption as well as mobile data encryption to address requirements from different models of corporate device or BYOD management.
Attend this Demo Days session and discover how you can implement a multi-pronged mLearning strategy with a suite of mobile learning technology and software for mobile workforces in any environment.
We’ll start by covering some of the research that clearly shows the positive effect of learning on business performance, especially in companies that have established a strong learning culture.
Next, we’ll look at the benefits enjoyed by organizations that invest in technology-enabled learning.
Finally, we’ll examine some of the trends in workplace learning and the factors that are driving a higher investment in it by many organizations.
The importance of learning
The world has changed; there is no more “business as usual” due to the economic strain of the past few years. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, there will be a severe gap in talent because 360 million workers will retire from the global labor force by 2030. This leaves big talent gaps and the need for a skilled workforce that only comes with a solid learning program.
Gamification is the integration of game mechanics, or game dynamics, into a learning experience, while game-based training can be defined as a game designed for the purpose of solving a problem. However, these words are being used in parallel by the industry and it can be quite confusing. This session will focus on the clarification of gamification and game-based training. Using examples from the industry, this session will help to explain each of the learning experiences, and discuss the best practices in their development.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are making waves in higher education. The world's top universities are creating online courses and giving them away for free. Learning leaders need to understand all the possibilities that MOOCs present: from encouraging employees to utilize MOOCs as part of their continuing professional education, to understanding the learning practices that enable MOOCs to deliver experiences globally. While the providers of these educational offerings are still working out a business model of their own, there exists an opportunity for businesses to benefit from the MOOC movement.
This session will take a balanced view at the evidence for MOOCs, giving you the tools to evaluate the potential for this exciting new field.
Is learning mission-critical to your business? Many organizations have a LMS, but only a few demonstrate real business results or are integrated in the day-to-day activities of employees’ lives.
In this session you will learn about how to make your e-learning system a mission-critical solution. You will be presented with nontraditional ways to use a LMS and align it with your business needs, improve the stickiness of the solution and drive measurable business results.
