Since the onset of COVID-19 organizations hurrying to move F2F training have been seen by us. A challenge is to work yet when possible do more than simply create screens of provide or text hours of lecture, with little else, at a meeting format that is digital. In some instances you will find perhaps better, options that could be created and deployed much more quickly.
Messaging can work well in lieu of a strategy. We often see examples of the with organizations offering content in snacks of up to approximately 5 minutes each message, with messages delivered throughout the span of a couple of days or months. Brian Dusablon of Learning Ninjas recently built a sample course to the Arist competition on inclusion and accessibility (you are able to enroll in the course at no cost here). Learners decide on the time of day and can subscribe to email or texts content will arrive. Figures 1-3 show that a day’s articles.

Much like the example that is text-format above, learning experiences delivered by email can provide learning and nudges preserve habits and to promote behavior change. Email is ubiquitous, familiar, and comfortable for students, and is currently embedded in the workflow. In her current Learning Solutions article on this issue, Sarah Mercier discusses ways learning can be used for varied topics like compliance and Immunology. She brought the subject to the current L&D of The eLearning Guild on a Shoestring Online Conference.

The text and email cases above illustrate the idea of learning A set of learning activities provided over time attempts, and frequently . The example below mainly provides behavior prompts–easy to harder–instead of tons of educational content. The goal of this effort: To develop a custom of giving opinions. Campaigns could be provided by means of a variety of formats to instant messaging or LMS notifications to text.
Allego sales readiness platform and medtronic device manufacturer recently teamed up to create a solution with substantial impact on the hospital workers of today — and COVID patients. Hospitals, many distressed for ventilators, are taking whatever they could get, such as products with which they have zero experience. This is coupled with a situation where respiratory therapists and ventilator manufacturer reps are in short supply. Medtronic and Allego collaborated to create the Ventilator Training Alliance program that contains ventilator instruction from all the Significant 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 an campaign from both spouses to provide translations for workers in non-English speaking countries and to convince producers to discuss information in such an open way. The program is available to any healthcare professional at no cost. See this Allego website.

Looking beyond approaches to tools and collaborations will help provide timely, effective, engaging learning experiences. Try to look articles that is next-button and beyond digital meetings for strategies that could enhance your offerings, even when working beneath abrupt and difficult constraints.
