The professional learning and training space is going through a massive transformation. Most organizations spend more than $350 billion globally on training, but 70% of employees report they do not have the mastery of skills needed to do their jobs and only 12% of employees actually apply those new skills on the job. Today’s modern learner is demanding a fully digital, robust, and engaging learning experience to support their lifelong learning journey.
Social distancing and virtual happy hours may have killed your social life. But, they’ve made everyone comfortable with video conferencing software. Even so, many organizations still struggle to replace in-person training.
You’re not alone if you experienced sticker shock while shopping for an LMS. Most organizations spend more than expected for an average of $70, 614 annually on their learning management system (LMS). At that price, you might be wondering if you’re better off building your own.
Before COVID-19, only 8% of the workforce worked remotely. A new Gallup found that 56% of U.S. workers were "always" or "sometimes" working remotely in January 2021. It looks like remote work (or at least having the option to work remotely) will no longer be a "trend" but an expectation once the pandemic has passed.
With 2020 came many unexpected and transformative events, ultimately changing our world in ways we never could have anticipated. But one thing is clear as we make our way into the new year: digital transformation has forever changed the way we deliver and consume education.
Professional education has advanced from the days when everyone sat in a conference room and listened to boring lectures they promptly forgot by the time the class was over. Technology has transformed our ability to craft more engaging and personalized learning strategies that help learners retain more knowledge. In this post, we'll discuss why the personalization aspect is so important and what some methods are for achieving it.
