In some instances there are less-traditional, perhaps better, options that can be made and deployed.
Messaging may work nicely in lieu of a approach. We often see examples of this with associations that provide content in bites of up to about 5 minutes each message, together with messages delivered throughout the span of months or a few days. Brian Dusablon of Learning Ninjas recently built a sample course to the Arist competition on accessibility and inclusion (you are able to register in the class at no cost here). Learners decide on the time of day and can subscribe to texts or email content will arrive. Figures 1-3 show the articles of a day.

Much like the illustration that is text-format above, learning experiences delivered by email can offer nudges and spaced learning sustain customs and to promote behaviour change. Email is ubiquitous, familiar, and comfortable for students, and is already embedded in the workflow. In her Learning Solutions informative article on the topic, ways learning may be used for topics like compliance and onboarding are discussed by Sarah Mercier.

The email and text examples above illustrate the notion of learning A series of learning activities provided across time attempts, and often . The example below offers behavior prompts–easy to harder–instead of lots of instructional content. The objective of this campaign. Campaigns can be provided to text via a variety of formats, from email into LMS notifications or messaging.
Medtronic medical device manufacturer and Allego sales readiness platform teamed up to create a solution and COVID patients. Hospitals distressed for ventilators, are taking whatever they can get, including products by. This is coupled with a situation where ventilator manufacturer repetitions and respiratory therapists are in short supply. Medtronic and Allego collaborated to create the Ventilator Training Alliance app that Includes ventilator training from all the major producers (Drager, GE Healthcare, Getinge, Hamilton Medical, Nihon Kohden, Phillips, Breas, Hillrom, Mindray, ResMed, Ventec Life Systems, Vyaire and Zoll) all in one place. This involved a huge 24/7 effort from both partners; equally to convince producers to discuss proprietary information in such an open way and to provide translations for employees in non-English speaking states. The app is available to any healthcare professional at no cost. Watch this Allego site to learn more.
