The Next Generation of Learning
We have been listening carefully to you and your employees to identify trends in learning preferences! About a year ago we asked a selection of our petroleum industry clients to share with us the trends they were seeing in workforce development. And, to our surprise, we heard that the current generation prefers access to targeted learning just when they need it
Not only when they need it, but also easily accessible and brief - each learning nugget should be about 5-8 minutes and available on any device! And in today’s fast-paced environment, no matter where we are in our careers, we can all use this type of targeted learning, right?
So, we went to work. Recently we asked our Instructional Design Team with responding to this new learning trend. They began by searching our major e-Learning resources, which contain over 1,500 e-Learning courses, to find valuable nuggets of knowledge that could be developed into short microlearning units. In a few months, they had built over 6,500 microlearning nuggets— incorporating rich content, video, animation, interactives and knowledge checks—all assembled into a searchable database. We were impressed!
At the same time, our Web Development Team created a responsive and accessible delivery system that makes this microlearning resource available over the web on any device!
Our last design task was to give this unique new product an appropriate name and we chose “Athena”, the Greek goddess of “Wisdom”. The product is officially called IHRDC’s Athena Microlearning.
IHRDC’s Athena Microlearning will strengthen your L&D program by improving learner engagement and quickly closing knowledge gaps. With short, targeted learning that is accessible at any time from any device, it’s easy to use, drives job performance, and enables your people to learn and retain the knowledge. Athena Microlearning delivers just what they need!!
