LearnDash

Why you should build and test a workable model of your course early in the design process. You’ve just had a brainstorm for a great new course idea, and you’re eager to begin planning content. You quickly write a course outline, and are ready to begin fleshing it out into a full-blown course. But before you get too carried away, there’s a step you should take first: course prototyping. An e-learning prototype is different from a storyboard, but not as developed as a beta test.

From Surviving to Thriving: Returning to what science says about how we think, work, and learn

Speaker: Clark Quinn, Ph.D., Author and Executive Director of Quinnovation

The pandemic and associated upheavals of 2020 has led to both the need and opportunity to rethink how we think, work, and learn. Being forced to distance, we took emergency steps to build mechanisms that supported remote-learning, with an emphasis on elearning and virtual training. The consensus suggests that our existing elearning and training weren’t as well-received as we hoped. Our efforts to rely on elearning more and translate training to virtual experiences weren’t well-designed. The underlying reason is that we’re not well aligned with how our brains really work! In this session, Dr. Quinn will also go over the implications for learning and working effectively both in general and in this new era. Come see what L&D can, and should, do to help transform organizations to work smarter (and wiser).

How training sets the stage for your customer experience

Litmos

Training is more than we often think it is. It’s a way to teach standards, procedures, processes. It’s also a way to lead by example to show what sort of experience you want your customers to have. It is in fact "setting the stage" for how you expect your people to perform in order to deliver that experience. When we are training our teams, we are training them about SO much more than the specific area to which they’re assigned.
