Knowledge-Based Learning Experiences Lack…

Relevance & Engagement

Learning experiences must be relevant to the learner and their current or future job to help knowledge stick.

Knowledge Application

Learners need a way to apply knowledge and skills in practical, lifelike situations and environments.

Quality Feedback

Quality and actionable feedback helps develop self-awareness of learner strengths and weaknesses.

Only 19% of Knowledge Acquired Can Be Skillfully Applied

The shortcomings of knowledge-centered learning aren’t the fault of universities or companies. They are doing their best with the tools they have.

The fault is in the status quo education and training methods themselves that hold learners back.

You Want to Prepare Your Learners for the Future of Work

You want confidence that your instruction will be a springboard to success. Preparing for the future of work requires learning experiences that:
book
Are customized, practical, and relevant to the skills — technical and soft skills — learners need to succeed.
clip-board
Use immersive, real-world learning applications to engage learners in a controlled environment.
checkbox
Provide high-quality, objective feedback that helps learners create a plan to build on their strengths and address skill gaps.

With Status Quo Education and Training Methods Holding Learners Back, What is the New Trend?

What solutions are available for consideration?

Fancier Powerpoints and Slideshows With Graphics and Videos

Powerpoints and slideshows have been the go-to instructional tool for years. Why? Because they're very accessible and super easy to build.

However, presentations lack:

  • A chance for knowledge application.
  • Channels for providing feedback (other than quiz and test scores).
  • Real-world scenarios to keep learners engaged.

E-learning authoring platforms

E-learning authoring platforms offer great back-end tracking, accessibility, and scalability. They're also more dynamic than Powerpoints.

However, like presentations, e-learning authoring platforms suffer from a lack of:

  • Practical application of knowledge.
  • A method to measure more than a learner’s ability to retain knowledge.
  • An immersive, engaging experience.

Heavily Coded Tech Like VR/AR Training Platforms

Virtual and augmented reality offer an incredibly immersive learning experience.

However, the technology that makes VR/AR learning possible is also its downfall. It takes a massive amount of time to code and develop just one VR/AR simulation, not to mention large upfront and ongoing costs.

What’s at Stake? And What’s the Way Forward?

Higher education and businesses worldwide must align their teaching and training methods to prepare their students and employees to become the best version of themselves.

Failing to do so means falling behind.

Colleges and universities will continue to produce students lacking critical behavioral skills employers are looking for.

Employers will continue to waste capital on hiring, training, and development initiatives.

For any learning solution to truly promote lasting skill development, it must meet 4 criteria:

  • Incorporate both knowing and doing

  • Foster accurate self-awareness

  • Deliver an engaging and relevant experience

  • Provide actionable feedback
