Millennials expect gamified learning on the go
Today millennials make up more than 50 % of the workforce. Studies show that they respond better to digital training and prefer to learn via video, micro-learning, relying on gamification, games, and more immersive learning. They have grown up using digital tools like Netflix, iPads and iPhones and have access to content on demand in every other aspect of their lives. Learning should not be the only thing they can’t get access to from home, commuting, on the weekend etc.

 

Insights to data on progress
Whether you are upskilling, reskilling or onboarding, digitizing your learning programs allows you to capture and analyze real time data about your people, their progress, challenges and wins. What knowledge and skills do your people, teams and organisation have? Are they happy? Are they learning, collaborating and getting to know one another better? With the right LMS, some of the benefits is is the ability to:

 

  • Track progress
  • Administer surveys and quizzes
  • Auto-generate real-time mappings of individual and collective skills and knowledge
  • Set individual goals and
  • Provide feedback

You probably got a boss breathing down your neck and a tight budget, and whenever you suggest more training, they ask you to document that it works and whether it costs or saves the organisation money.

A top benefit of using an LMS is that the system, based on quizzes and advanced algorithms can adapt to each individual, and personalise the curriculum, exercises and quizzes to every person.

 

Adaptive learning can individualize the training programs and save time
In the classroom, we call it differentiated learning, and it’s the way in which a teacher can read the room and adapt how they teach to each student, ensuring that they learn. The challenge is, that in the classroom there are a lot of people, and since one teacher can’t adapt to many learning styles and preferences at once, everyone still comprises a little bit. A top benefit of using an LMS is that the system, based on quizzes and advanced algorithms can adapt to each individual, and personalise the curriculum, exercises and quizzes to every person. That is called adaptive learning, and while it has been hyped for many years, the technology is actually starting to provide real results. Adaptive learning is a great solution for the learner, who avoids wasting time on things they already know. It’s great for companies, because your people aren’t spending unnecessary time on training. In other words, it’s a win win!
