LXPs allow learners to have genuinely personalized, holistic learning experiences and give them much more autonomy over their learning path.
Although LXP has become a pretty common term, particularly for HR representatives and Learning & Development departments looking to give the best and most efficient training to their teams, let’s briefly recap what an LXP is. An LXP is a learning platform focused on the user and their learning journey. It steps away from the old and rigid LMS model, where managers had complete control and users were limited to consuming content. LXPs allow learners to have genuinely personalized, holistic learning experiences and give them much more autonomy over their learning path. Furthermore, it offers an innovative way to train employees by increasing engagement and learning outcomes, so they can apply this knowledge to their jobs and boost the organization’s productivity!
Corporate onboarding and training have made giant strides in the past few years due to the pandemic, the massification of remote work, and the digital nomad lifestyle. It comes down to one simple truth, in a day and age when there are so many communication tools, and you can jump in a video call with your colleagues regardless of their location in the world, it simply makes sense to find the best possible talent no matter where they want to work from, and there is no question that the best way to train them, so they hit the ground running, is using an LXP.
Indeed LXPs replaced old thick, dusty manuals and hours of in-person training that were inefficient and left new team members overwhelmed with the amount of information they had to absorb in a few hours. Given that LXPs have become so popular, it can be hard to decide which is the best and adjust to your needs and budget.
The truth is, if you make a quick Google search, you will find hundreds of options. Each one will tell you that they are the best but before you jump into the first result on Google and maybe regret your decision later, make sure that the LXP you are about to choose is truly perfect for you by reviewing the following checklist.
A simple checklist to find the perfect LXP for your business and your team
Maybe you think the lesson you just gave was terrific. You spent hours working on it, created excellent materials, and you feel satisfied with the final product, but when your students hand in their homework or correct a quiz, it seems like they didn’t understand anything. AI can help you know the speed at which your students learn and their learning challenges so that you can create a more personalized and adaptive learning experience that each kid can make the most of to reach their full potential.
you should not need a digital driver’s license to manage your learning experience platform.
1. Beautiful, intuitive design
At CanopyLAB, we always say you should not need a digital driver’s license to manage your learning experience platform. Think about what you like best about your preferred streaming service. Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is how easy it is to browse or look for your favorite show. An LXP should be the same. An easy, simple, and visually appealing space, so learners enjoy using it.
2. Social learning is a must
There is no denying that we learn best when we learn with others. It is one of the most positive aspects of F2F learning and one you should keep in mind when choosing an LXP for your team. Can employees interact with each other and with you within the LXP? Does it have a social media interface that makes learning interactive and allows people to connect, ask questions, access forums and groups, and help each other? Considering the social aspects of learning will help you build the right corporate culture and will set your team for success from the get-go.
we created an AI Course Authoring Tool, AICATO. We love how she is helping course creators reduce the time they spend coming up with questions, exercises, and unit descriptions.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all around us, from the moment you wake up and grab your phone to ask Siri what the weather will be like to the music suggested by Spotify when you hit the gym. So why should corporate training be any different? At CanopyLAB, for example, we created an AI Course Authoring Tool, AICATO. We love how she is helping course creators reduce the time they spend coming up with questions, exercises, and unit descriptions. She can give you all that information by quickly analyzing your videos and materials, so you only have to do a minor tweak or two and can focus on giving your team a great learning experience.
4. Insightful Analytics
AI can do much more than help you create courses. We are sure managers will appreciate having comprehensive dashboards where they can visualize their employees’ performance and satisfaction with the content, the time it takes to go through the courses, and everything in between. Make their lives easier and automatize tedious processes by ensuring the LXP you chose has access to this information with only a couple of clicks.
5. Mobile friendly
Whether your team is full of digital nomads, busy parents, or ambitious students pursuing a second degree or an MBA while having a full-time job, learning happens on the go, so making sure the LXP you choose is mobile friendly is crucial to ensure all these people have the freedom to learn when it best suits their schedule and still have an empowering learning experience that prepares them or gives them new skills to succeed in their jobs and achieve your company’s goals.
