Microlearning is training delivered in bitesize chunks, ideal for learning on the go or for specific short pieces of content. Kineo know it well and were thrilled to be recognised in eLearning Industry's 2021 list.
Statistics can sometimes overwhelm us – even mislead us, especially if we look at them without proper context. When framed in perspective, and used in the right way, we can all learn a lot about a given challenge or problem. One such challenge is around employee expectations, and how best to engage and motivate the workforce through learning and development, as part of a broader employee experience initiative.
Over the last few weeks and as part of our blog series on Virtual Classrooms, we’ve taken a look at the story of the Virtual Classroom. Our previous two blogs reviewed its rise to prominence in response to the pandemic, with the immediate need to shift face-to-face learning to a virtual environment and the latest advances in some of the tech and tools you can use to maximise the Virtual Classroom experience. In this final part of the series, we’re widening the lens to share how you can take your virtual training further, by taking a digital-first approach to your wider learning programme design.
In the immediate aftermath of the pandemic, we saw a significant increase in the use of Virtual Classrooms or Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT), which we’ve been exploring in our three-part blog series, 'The story of the Virtual Classroom'. In our second instalment of the series, we take a look at the Virtual Classroom technology and tools that have bolstered their capabilities in light of the pandemic, and how they can be used to enhance the Virtual Classroom experience.
In this three-part series, we’re focusing on the Virtual Classroom (VC) and Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) to explore the impact of the pandemic, what Virtual Classrooms can offer for the future of learning and how new developments in the technology landscape can help to amplify this long-standing learning format. In this, part 1, we take a look at the latest research and explore the lessons that can be learned to help take this virtual learning format to the next level.
