Week 1: Conducting and effective need analysis

It all starts with a needs analysis, so how is an online training needs analysis different?
Let’s start with a comforting thought: It is not fundamentally different from a face to face course, in fact, the principles are exactly the same:
  • Identifying who the learners are; what are their current professional issues, what is their work environment
  • Identifying some clear learning objectives based on a skills gap analysis and how it measures against corporate goals
  • Choosing a method of delivery: information based, workshop, long programme, skill validation such as certification

Week 2: Creating a digital learning journey on a shoestring budget

The role of digital learning in the learning process
There are two things that makes digital learning unbeatable as a learning method the first is how easily it is to access and the second, the ultimate benefit, is that by  spreading out the learning you can really embed it into the work process.  This means that instead of squeezing 12 hours into 3 days you spread it across 6 weeks, allowing the learner to move more seamlessly from learning to reflection then application.

Based on the learner's profile you have previously established, as well as the results you want them to achieve, this second week will give you a clear method to adapt your content to a different delivery format, ultimately enabling learners to strive in their career.

Week 4: Learning outside the Classroom

Delivering a successful digital training is about finding the perfect balance between facilitated activities and self-study. In week 2 of #TrainingDoneRight, we created a game plan or learning path, In week 3 we started to explore how to run facilitated sessions online. Due to the propensity of learners to multi-task, it is best to avoid sharing information during a live online session and instead to focus on discussions, role plays, case studies and other group activities. However, there is of course still a need to access information in order to learn, so how are we going to tackle this ...

Week 5: Measuring online training results

Delivering a quality course online does not mean having a professionally made library of video or e-learnings. It means first and foremost, the learners will be able to perform better, apply a new skill with confidence or step up into a new role. Training Guru, Kathryn Tyler shares with us how to design and develop a qualitative approach to training.

It won’t take 5min but it is all worth it: Looking at your course, decide the frequency and type of quality assessment you will develop for the pilot and ask yourself how you will make time for it!
