Our users say that e-learning is mind-numbing?
Today’s modern-day learner knows what they want. They want engaging content. They want the sort of quality that they serve up to themselves day in and day out in their own lives, away from the world of work. We’ve seen the overall trend changing too. Businesses are now moving away from just having content (to tick a box), to wanting content that grabs people’s attentions, delivers information in bite-size chunks and is available on the go!
There is no single answer here, but there are some great ways to get started.
First up, it really comes down to variety. You need a strategy that doesn’t focus all your efforts in one area. This isn’t about a certain type of knowledge gap needing a certain type of learning solution anymore. Options, such as letting people self-serve, can really help.
The power of video cannot be underestimated. It has seen a prolific, even meteoric rise in usage, but it is hardly surprising. We all love the cinema, don’t we? As a medium it can convey so much, so make sure you give it some serious thought when it comes to choosing a provider for your content library. It’s a real plus if other mediums are provided, but we think video is top of the tree.
Finally, think about reward and recognition. This doesn’t have to be financial. It can be as simple as promoting the success of the e-learning (number of sessions, number of courses taken and so on). You could surprise your people by introducing a level of gamification within the organisation or by launching new content on a regular basis.
How can Mi Crow help?
We’d have to agree that finding good e-learning and online content can be hard. In fact finding great e-learning is often impossible. The good news is that we think there is a better way, a smarter way, a different way…Welcome to Mi Crow. Learning Made Easy!
Everything we produce is video based. It’s the concept of finding what you need in 3 clicks and then being able to watch it within (an average of) 3 minutes. Plus, it is the power of learning anywhere, anytime and on any device. With Mi Crow you get access to hundreds of quality courses all in video format. Our style is evolving and so we’ve got screen flow, screen cast, animation and video-scribing all as part of our content roadmap.
More than that, every course we create has to pass the ‘Mind Blown’ test. Once a course is complete, we ask ourselves “did that blow my mind?” If it didn’t, then we go back to the drawing board. Every course we make has to add value and has to impress. Without question.
We feel we hit all the right notes – variety, video based and content that will really excite the learner. If you haven’t already, take a free trial via our website and see what all the fuss is about.
