Empowering Learner Experiences Is Essential

This week’s blog comes from Intellek HQ, after attending a webinar called ‘6 Essentials of Empowered Learner Experiences’. This webinar was sponsored by LinkedIn’s eLearning Industry group.

They discussed the future of learning and after conducting a research program with 52 Learning leaders from 36 organizations, they asked what one word or phrase describes the future of organizational learning. These were the most frequent responses:

  • At the point of need 
  • Skills-focused 
  • Self-paced and personalized
  • Digital

They shared that learners want curated learning journeys and personalization of learner experiences through intuitive learning technology. There was discussion about the phrase soft skills being rephrased as interpersonal skills. Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion is the number one course in top firms.

The new world of learner experience is now expected to be transformative with a shift from skills-focused to knowledge-driven training. A focus on the whole self-model, not an isolated role focused along with a broader more flexible, less rigid training path.

They shared the six essentials are:

  1. Motivation to Learn
  2. Access to a Learning Management System (LMS)
  3. Easy Navigation
  4. Personalization of Results
  5. Engaging Learner Content
  6. Positive Learning Outcomes

The webinar was very interesting and informative.
