eLearning retention rates can be a tricky business – it’s not enough to just present learners with information and expect them to retain it. In this video, our Learning Design Director, Stacey, takes an enlightening look at ways to improve learner retention rates using advanced instructional design techniques such as scenario-based training and decision-based training.

Learning points:

  • Instructional design techniques to improve learner retention
  • Using constructive feedback effectively
  • Involving the learner in decision making processes

Using scenarios to promote learning effectiveness

In this video we take a closer look at scenario-based learning and the ways it can be used to strengthen the performance of your training program. In the video, our Instructional Design Team Leader, Neil, explores the relevance of scenario-based training to real workplace problems and investigates how using this technique can help reduce risk in a real way. Viewers will understand how risk-free, scenario-based training works by asking the user to engage with scenes at various critical points and make decisions to effect positive outcomes.

Learning points:

  • How scenario-based learning operates
  • The benefits of scenario-based learning
  • Using scenario-based learning to promote learning, engagement, and confidence levels

In this video, our Learning Design Director, Stacey, demonstrates how implementing an adaptive learning program facilitates next level return on investment when it comes to your training budget.

It’s easy to rely on data alone when it comes to measuring the effectiveness of your training program. However, in this illuminating clip, Learning Design Director, Stacey, explores how employee behavior is the real key to understanding just how effective your learning intervention has been.

Learning points:

  • What data is useful for measuring training success
  • Using employee behaviour to measure training success
  • Setting the right learning objectives at the start

It is not enough to just present information to employees and expect them to digest it.

Our Learning Design Director, Stacey Taylor explains that eLearning courses should have the following features to help satisfy the requirements of different learner types. By including all three learning styles in your eLearning plan all employees can engage fully with online training.

  • How employees learn differently
  • What content should be included to satisfy the three main learning types
  • Why this increases employee engagement

There is no set answer to how often employees need their training refreshed. It really depends on an organisations urgent requirements, or a business could have diagnosed or identified a further requirement for training, through something like our Phishing Simulation tool. As this video explains, a general rule is that training should be refreshed at least once a year.

  • What factors influence employee refresher training schedules
  • When employee training needs refreshing
  • How refresher training varies from business to business
