Learning Technologies to Transform the Impact of your Training

 

Implementing a new complex system within your corporate environment and having a large workforce to train can be a logistical nightmare even for the most experienced Learning & Development professional. Our recorded webinar talks more about some of the challenges:

 

  • Employees are often geographically dispersed with differing languages, time zones and working hours to consider
  • Diaries need to sync to ensure availability for the duration of the training course
  • Training environments need to be set up, configured and maintained
  • Accompanying training materials need to be created
  • When processes change or functional upgrades occur, which happens regularly in the ever changing 21st century world, all of the training and associated documentation need to be adjusted

 

In the past, live training environments, also known as sandboxes/training clients, have often been selected as the method of choice to train users on new software being implemented in the business. Because training in an environment similar to the real thing is an efficient way to train users as they are practising in a hands-on, practical way. As seen in the Learning Pyramid  below, learning retention from active learning as opposed to passive methods are usually higher.

The downside of sandboxes is that the return on investment (ROI) is often low because they are extremely costly and time consuming to set up and maintain when systems and processes change.

Adopting the right training approach is crucial to gain maximum ROI from the technology you have invested so much in.

Many of the Fortune 500 are instead moving towards a different type of technology that has revolutionized the training world. Listen to Andy Hurren, FLPI, Head of Learning at npower and Brendan Scullion, Learning Specialist at Assima on a recorded webinar to learn more about this approach of providing users with a highly interactive training environment that is a clone of the actual software. This virtual way of learning behaves and reacts in exactly the same way as the live system immersing the trainee in the learning experience. This reduces the reliance on classroom training events and their associated high cost and replaces old fashioned training environments.

 

Listen here to learn the benefits of using this approach to transform your training including:

 

Reduce your training development and delivery costs and increase employee efficiency while giving your users the best training experience without exceeding your budget.
