Digital corporate training, using an advanced learning management system, allows organisations to provide continuous learning to their employees. Platforms such as FUEL Learn, which incorporate detailed automated reporting of user behaviour, make it simple to pick up gaps in performance. Once these gaps are flagged, relevant training can be deployed to bring employees up to speed.
Bridging the gaps
By providing users of the LMS with automatic feedback through the software as they train, they are made aware of issues immediately and given the opportunity to address them. Human politics are not involved, as the feedback given is purely a programmed reaction to their own inputs, be it positive or negative feedback. Potentially negative feedback can be delivered in the form of encouragement and to direct the learner to consider an alternate solution.
Pre-training needs assessments are extremely useful and can be done in the form of fun surveys or self-evaluation tests. These can also be interspersed on an ongoing basis periodically, to keep abreast of shifting online training needs. Staff can be asked what activities outside work they are currently enjoy, such as hobbies or interests. The resulting feedback could then indicate areas or skills they might be suited to exploring.
From here, customised curriculums and training paths can be allocated. Learners can be engaged to help plot their potential career trajectory and shown how they can reach milestones. Scheduling their online training thoughtfully to correspond with these goals can then be instituted.
Assessment and reporting
Continuous testing is required through the LMS to verify the successful transfer of knowledge. These results guide your Learning & Development department’s following actions. Assessment data needs to be generated into effective reporting by the online training system and disseminated to the proper levels of management.
Systems such as FUEL Learn produce detailed automates reports which can be viewed at a variety of different levels and made available to specific audiences. The data can then be drilled down into as far as required. This the key aspect of an LMS, as there is no point in creating courses and generating data if it is not able to be used effectively by management.
