Move to Resources, Not Courses

CLO Magazine

Your resources might include formal learning events, but also access to RSS feeds about specific topics, short videos that provide the essential information delivered by an expert, job aids, step-by-step guides and tools that help performance when it most counts — in the moment. Of course, as we make the move to resources instead of courses, there is a danger that the learning and development industry will overcorrect. A one-size-fits-all approach is archaic in this new world.
