Nuts and Bolts: Bootstrapping – by Jane Bozarth


Since the start of COVID-19 organizations rushing to move training that was F2F to formats have been seen by us. A challenge has been to work fast yet when potential do more than simply create screens of provide or text hours of lecture, with little else, in a meeting format that is virtual. In some cases you will find , perhaps better, options that are less-traditional that could be made and deployed.
Text-based messaging can work nicely in lieu of a approach. We see examples of the with associations that provide content in bites of up to approximately 5 minutes each week, with messages delivered across the span of a couple of days or months. Brian Dusablon of Learning Ninjas recently assembled a sample course for the Arist competition on inclusion and accessibility (you can register in the class for free here). Learners can subscribe to email or texts and decide on the time of day new content will arrive. Figures 1-3 show that a day’s articles.

Much like the illustration above, learning experiences can provide nudges and spaced learning to encourage behaviour change and preserve customs. Email is familiar, ubiquitous, and comfortable for students, and is already embedded in the workflow. In her Learning Solutions informative article on the topic, ways email-based learning can be used for varied topics like compliance and Immunology are discussed by Sarah Mercier. She brought the topic into The eLearning Guild’s recent.

Learning campaigns
The email and text cases above illustrate the idea of learning attempts: A set of learning activities provided over time, and often including distinct mediums, designed to provide nudges that support behaviour change. The example below mainly provides behavior prompts–easy to harder–instead of lots of content. The goal of this effort: To create a custom of giving feedback. Campaigns could be provided by means of many different formats, from email into LMS notifications or messaging to text. See my March 2020 Nuts & Bolts column for more on learning attempts.

New alliances
Medtronic medical device manufacturer and COVID patients — and Allego sales readiness platform recently teamed up to create a solution with impact on the current hospital workers. Hospitals are taking whatever they could get, including products by. This is coupled with a scenario where respiratory therapists and ventilator manufacturer repetitions are in short supply. Medtronic and Allego collaborated to create the Ventilator Training Alliance app that contains ventilator instruction from all the Significant manufacturers (Drager, GE Healthcare, Getinge, Hamilton Medical, Nihon Kohden, Phillips, Breas, Hillrom, Mindray, ResMed, Ventec Life Systems, Vyaire and Zoll) all in 1 place. This involved an effort from both spouses also to provide translations for workers in non-English speaking countries and to convince manufacturers to discuss proprietary data in an open way. The app is available to any healthcare professional for free. Watch this Allego website for more information.

Looking past traditional methods to applications that are familiar and collaborations can help provide timely, powerful, engaging learning experiences. Try to look past virtual meetings and articles that is next-button for strategies that could enhance your offerings, even if working under constraints that are hard and abrupt.
