“Adaptive learning is the number one technology that can make a difference to corporate learning.” – The Gartner Group
We all agree that in-class training is the Gold standard. But it has some clear downsides:
- Travel and entertainment costs
- Time out of field
- “One size fits all” approach.
In order to combat this, companies have turned to E-Learning platforms. These have the upside of eliminating travel and entertainment, but:
- Have sometimes enormous up-front costs
- And still use a “one size fits all approach”- meaning everyone, regardless of skill level gets exposed to the same level of material. This wastes learner time, decreases interest and still takes them out of the field for long blocks of time.
If Everyone says. “you can expect to get 2-3 nuggets out of every training program, and that’s a great ROI”
AGREED! BUT WHAT IF WE COULD QUICKLY ELIMINATE THE NEED TO COVER EVERYTHING BUT THE NUGGESTS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL LEARNER?
Adaptive learning does just that!
It quickly ascertains what the learner already knows, prove that they know it, and moves on to a new topic area. When the student is not proficient, or worse, only thinks they are proficient, adaptive learning drills down into that subject matter to assure complete fluency.
How does it work?
