Embracing Remote Working Challenges: How To Launch Learning Experiences Built On Solid Learning Science

Flexibility is key, but does the time-tested learning science support virtual learning experiences designed exclusively for remote positions?

Does Your Current eLearning Program Align With Learners’ Needs?

1. Accessibility Obstacles

Employees must be able to access blended learning resources on any device, whenever necessary. Authentication errors, unresponsive design, and other accessibility obstacles hinder trainee participation. They simply can’t reach the learning tools that they need to bridge gaps and correct negative performance behaviors. This is why it’s so essential to provide content that’s suitable for every screen. Another thing to consider when choosing your LMS is single sign-on so that employees use one username and password for every platform.

2. Outdated Or Irrelevant Resources

Personalized learning strategies are based on real-world challenges or situations. That’s what makes them personal. Employees learn how to overcome obstacles they face in the workplace and all the content relates to their work roles. Outdated resources miss the mark because they don’t hold any meaning for modern employees. The training material must also tie into their tasks and responsibilities instead of just offering a generic overview of company protocols and policies.

3. Misuse Of Learning Tech

You have all the latest and greatest learning tech but you’re underutilizing the tools. Maybe you don’t incorporate enough JIT online support, or you recommend LMS library resources when you should be hosting a live event to bridge gaps on the spot. The key to embracing remote working challenges is to strike a balance. Know when to use technology to your advantage and when to give employees that face-to-face interaction they need. So, evaluate your objectives and outcomes on a case-by-case basis to find the best approach.

4. No Collaborative Support

This common error can be traced back to a common blended learning misconception; that personalization equals autonomy. Full autonomy that doesn’t leave any room for social interaction or peer support. The truth is that every personalized learning solution should have a collaborative element, even if it’s a social media group or coaching program where they can meet regularly and discuss important topics.

5. No Practical Application

There are two types of training that form the basis for all employee development strategies. The first is theoretical know-how. This has all the policies, task procedures, and protocols employees must memorize. Then there’s practical application, which many organizations overlook. Staffers are expected to automatically use their newfound knowledge on the job, to magically understand how everything fits together and apply without questioning. The simple truth is that every member of the team needs to put their knowledge into practice; use their skills in a practical context and see how it pertains to their job duties.
