Learning and Development (L&D) is no longer an optional ‘benefit’ in today’s workplace, it’s a crucial part of an employee’s overall experience and can be a determining factor as to whether an individual stays with a company.
Don’t believe us? Well, according to a recent LinkedIn Learning survey, 74% of employees are willing to leave their jobs for better learning and development opportunities. That’s right, 74%!
We’re in a world where skills become obsolete at speed, so continuous learning is the key to staying ahead of the game.
But let’s be honest, the digital learning landscape can be a tangled mess. Information overload and disjointed platforms leave employees disengaged and uninspired.
The cost of a poor digital learning journey is staggering. A Brandon Hall Group study found that companies with poorly designed programs experience 27% higher turnover and 16% lower productivity. That’s millions down the drain, not to mention the loss of valuable talent and stunted company growth.
So, how do we create a clear and engaging learning path?
Imagine juggling textbooks, online courses, multiple learning platforms and scattered blog posts. That’s the current plight of many digital learners.
By embracing tools like HulerHub, for example, you can centralise all of your resources and learning platforms to create a unified, single-source-of-truth that can be personalised for specific audiences. It does all this whilst providing insightful analytics to show who’s engaging with what; helping you optimise your strategy whilst creating learning bliss.
Remember the days of monotonous lectures and passive note-taking? Interactive learning is now even easier, even when learning online.
Look for tools that incorporate gamification elements like badges, points and leaderboards. Platforms like Kahoot! And Quizizz transform learning into a friendly competition, boosting motivation and knowledge retention.
Our learning preferences are as unique as we are individuals, which means a one-size-fits-all approach to learning no longer works.
Whilst it’s easier to personalise the learning process in person, there are lots of adaptive learning platforms that use things like AI to analyse individual strengths and weaknesses, and dynamically adjust content and pace to suite the needs of the unique learner.
The Feedback Loop
Learning should never be a one-way street.
Real-time feedback fosters vibrant communities and fuels improvement. It provides the opportunity for learners to engage with instructors, peers and more.
Even if your learners are remote, there are lots of great tools that allow for feedback. For example, interactive whiteboards like Miro, polling applications like Mentimeter or digital recognition platforms, like Kudos inside of HulerHub.
Data-driven learning isn’t a new concept.
Tracking learner engagement, knowledge retention, and skill development through analytics dashboards, like those offered by HulerHub and TalentLMS, is essential for evaluating the effectiveness of your L&D programs.
These insights help L&D professionals to continuously refine their learning strategy and keep learners engaged and motivated.
Digital optimisation of your learning journey will empower your workforce to reach their full potential.
By equipping your digital learning journey with these powerful tools, you’re not just providing information, you’re igniting a passion for knowledge and fuelling growth across your company.
Continuous learning isn’t just a perk, it’s a necessity. And with the right tools, the digital learning journey can be exhilarating, transformative, and super effective.
