Business productivity of an organisation depends upon how skilled the employees are. The skillset in turn depends upon their knowledge. Thus with the advancing technology, it becomes a necessity for a professional to keep himself updated with the latest advancement in the technology. This is the reason why most organisations conduct regular training sessions so that their employees are acquainted with the latest technological skills. However having said this, a conventional form of training session based on PPTs or technical manuals hardly help the professionals during the training session. The reason behind bringing with the PPTs or manuals, the professionals find it difficult to assimilate hard-core technical terms just by reading, or when the instructor just gives an overview about the latest technology without getting into the depth of the technical terms used in the PPTs or manuals. This is corroborated by a research carried out by Bersin by Deloitte (Deloitte Consulting LLP) which suggests that 74% of organizations using traditional form of Learning and Development (L&D) methodologies witness minor success when it comes to motivating learning skills of the employees.
How custom development services embedded into smart e-learning solutions helped to circumvent the situation?
The e-learning content development companies thought there are two essential ways to ensure that the learners acquire knowledge and skills passionately. For the same, the learner should be taught in such a way that their visualisation skills shouldn’t face obstacles when they come across heavily worded terms and they should actively participate in the learning activities. This was made possible through animated content and Nudge theory.
What is Nudge theory?
The concept of Nudge theory is based on the idea of enhancing learning skills through positive reinforcement and indirect suggestions. To elaborate, when Nudge theory is used as a part of custom development services in the corporate e-learning solutions, the learner participates wholeheartedly in the learning activities that assist him to retain and re-collect whatever he has learnt. Importantly, Nudge form of learning is wisely designed to suit a learner’s learning style, pace, and convenience.
Use of animated content to enhance learning
One of the biggest hurdles faced while learning is the inability of the learners to understand the technical jargon is used in the manuals. This hurdle is simplified by the e-learning content development companies through the use of animated content and simulation in the corporate e-learning solutions. The animated content helps the learners by breaking down the technical terms as well as the content into simple animations. This helps the learners to not only understand the technical content but also to absorb the heavily worded jargons used in the content.
How the combination of animated content and Nudge theory turns e-learning solutions into an impactful medium for learning?
The animated content makes learning simple and easy while the Nudge theory helps them to revise the content that has been taught and retain them. Importantly, the animation focuses on each detail of the content so that there is nothing left to the learners to do research on the internet to understand the content. On the other hand, Nudge form of learning encourages the learners to apply the learnt skills in the workplace to maintain a competitive edge.
