INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS: How to Increase Engagement with Custom eLearning

 
Historically, instructor-led training (ILT) has dominated learning modalities. But in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, employee training and development teams are under pressure to quickly recreate instructor-led experiences in a virtual setting. Doing so usually requires the capabilities to build custom eLearning activities, but for many Learning and Development (L&D) teams, that may seem impossible on a short timeline.

However, in addition to high-tech solutions such as gamification and immersive technologies, there are also low-tech solutions that can help.

Be a Lifelong Learner

By Karen Wright I’ve never met a leader with a big vision who didn’t also have a huge commitment to his own development. Anyone who’s trying to stay at the top of his game never stops learning—he never presumes he knows it all, and he’s not embarrassed to seek wisdom from others. In fact, outstanding leaders know that the best way to stay sharp is to constantly pursue learning and new ideas.

Corporate Culture: A Foundation for Success

By Clara Lippert Glenn, CEO/President, The Oxford Princeton Programme Creating a corporate culture is a unique and important undertaking that will have a significant impact on your company’s overall success. It is one aspect of business that many overlook. However, cultivating a professional atmosphere where your employees know what to expect and what is expected of them is crucial to employee retention and production, as well as your company’s overall success. It is an investment in time and energy that is well worth making.

Learning Matters: The "X" Factor

By Tony O’Driscoll
Last month, I was sitting in a leadership development program listening to two talented executives share personal stories about how they had learned to lead. As they shared their leadership lessons with the participants, I noticed that one word kept coming up over and over again. That word was “CONTEXT.”
“Before I tell you this story, let me set some context,” one said.
“To understand why I made the decision I did, it is important for me to give you some more context,” said the other.

Trainer Talk: Time vs. Results

By Bob Pike CSP, CPAE, CPLP Fellow
How long should training be? Almost every time I lead a seminar in the U.S. I get feedback that trainers are being pressured to deliver training faster. If, as a trainer, you believe it will take three days to develop the needed skills and knowledge, you’re asked to deliver it in two. If it can be done in two, then do it in one. If one, then a half-day should do it. If in an hour, then don’t you just have a pill people can take? In the U.S., it seems, it always will take too much time.

Empower Your Inner Manager

By Ian R. Mackintosh Many books on the market teach specific management training skills. This book is not intended to teach you how to gain or develop those skills. And be aware that some of those skills can be taught, some can be gained experientially, and some are simply innate. Regardless of the state of your skill set, this book will show you how to assess your skills and formulate an effective plan for your career development.

World View: Focus on Australia

By Dr. Neil Orkin, President, Global Training Systems
Bondi Beach, The Sydney Opera House, koala bears, kangaroos. Is there a training world in the “Land Down Under?” Yes, yes, and yes! Ignore this beautiful country at your own risk. Business opportunities abound in Australia for your organization, and there is an interest and need for human resource development. Your training investment will return a significant profit.

Talent Tips: Make Your People Matter in Meetings

By Roy Saunderson, Chief Learning Officer, Rideau’s Recognition Management Institute
There is a classic cliché definition that meetings are where minutes are kept and hours are lost. However, someone I know recently challenged that perspective by suggesting the idea that every meeting should be a revelatory experience.

Best Practices: Can Trust Be Taught?

By Neal Goodman, Ph.D., President, Global Dynamics, Inc.
Afundamental impediment in human interactions is the lack of trust. According to Stephen M.R. Covey, author of bestseller “The Speed of Trust,” training programs to promote trust enhance performance and profitability.

Soapbox: You Should Be in Pictures

By Diane De Re, President, 321 FastDraw Inc.
Since the dawn of time, mankind has used images to communicate. From the El Castillo cave in Cantabria, Spain, with artwork of bison, horses, aurochs, and deer painted on the cave walls by our ancestors nearly 40,000 years ago, to ancient Egypt as far back as 3200 B.C. where hieroglyphs were used as a writing system, it is clear that the use of artwork is one of our most basic and powerful forms of communication, seemingly hardwired into our genetics.

Last Word: Embrace Social Media Carefully

By Peter Post, Director, The Emily Post Institute
Are companies really embracing social media? It appears so. The average midsize or large company (1,000 employees or more) has 178 “social media assets,” according to the Business2Community Website. That means that, on average, 178 individuals are tweeting, blogging, or posting on behalf of their organizations on company social media outlets.

How-To: Integrate Customer Service and Applications Training

By Kent Sipes, Senior Consultant, CedarCrestone
In customer service offices around the world, employees interact with customers, then intently study their computer screens, then interact with customers again. Often, the switch from customer to screen and back is awkward, and most customer service professionals are more comfortable dealing with people than with computers. There’s often a tendency to do all the “computer” work, then all the “people” work.
