How to Create a Digital Approach to Learning
As the amount of people working from home continues to increase, the role of human resources and the upskilling of staff also need to be digital. Before implementing a digital learning strategy many elements needs to be considered:
Understand Your Learners
The most important step when taking a digital approach to learning is to understand your learners. People do not have the same learning abilities, ambitions and attitudes so it’s important to personalise their learning experience to their requirements.
Learning Through Multiple Devices
A digital learning experience requires access to a computer, mobile or tablet devices. This also gives the learner the ability to learn in any environment (with Wi-Fi) therefore creating a better learning experience.
One of the most important things to consider when creating a digital learning platform is understanding the user’s journey. There are many elements to consider when improving the “digital journey” for your learners:
- Is it compatible with all devices
- Is it fast to load
- Can the learner’s progress be tracked and monitored
- Is there a messaging system between the learner and trainer/manager
- Can the learner easily navigate around the platform
It’s also important to consider how to monitor the progress from a learner. If the learning platform can identify the user’s weaknesses then the trainer or manager can see how they can improve those skills.
Working from home can also be a distraction for some people. If they are falling behind their targets, the learning platform should identify this to the manager.
Not every user needs access to everything, in fact, it could lead to some security risks if the learner can add anyone new to the learning platform. Make sure that the software has the technology to assign users into different admin roles.
