Now that virtual training has become the new normal, we’re excited to announce the release of a stronger integration between BenchPrep and Zoom Meetings. This integration will allow you to quickly and easily create and manage virtual instructor-led training (VILT) sessions from within the BenchPrep platform.
In part one of this blog series, we covered the strategy for implementing your digital transformation plan. As you move between in-person training, virtual instructor-led training, self-paced instruction, and continuous lifelong career learning, it’s important to remember that the massive, digital change you bring to your organization will open possibilities for your learning program (and your business) that would never be possible in a traditional model.
The events of 2020 have shown us that having a plan for the digital transformation of your learning business is more important than ever. As we already have seen, many organizations are quickly shifting resources to provide training and certification digitally to maintain business and revenue continuity.
Offering a complete mobile experience to your learners is essential. People spend more time on their mobile phones or tablets than sitting at desktop or laptop computers, and about 20% of millennials don’t use desktop computers at all, choosing mobile devices instead.
Earlier this year, we released Milestones in the BenchPrep platform to give course designers more control over how learners consume content. For example, course designers can use Milestones to prevent learners from taking a particular exam until they also complete certain lessons. In this case, completing those lessons is a Milestone a learner must achieve before they have access to the exam. This blog post offers a deep dive into the benefits of Milestones and covers the most common use cases.
If you run a learning program, you know how powerful it is to keep your learners engaged with your online content. Not only do learners achieve greater levels of success, but your learning business continues to grow. According to our data, however, learners average 98% fewer sessions in a learning platform after they complete their study plan.
