How To Choose The Best LMS For Your Organisation

If you want to know how to choose the best LMS for your organisation, here’s your answer…

There isn’t one.

I’m not being facetious either.

What motivates people to learn online at work?

I asked this question to a group of 20 or so L&D folks last week. The responses I got back included:

  • Accessibility
  • Speed
  • Ease
  • It’s ‘free’
  • It’s just-in-time
  • They don’t have to leave their desks

Did you notice anything missing from that list? What do you think is the number one reason that people want to learn online at work?

According to …

What Is E-Learning Today?

In the L&D world, e-learning today can sometimes be seen as the poor cousin to instructor-led training. It’s mostly because when we think about e-learning we think about the boring compliance courses we’re expected to complete to protect against organisational risk. Very rarely does that form of…

How Do We Get Employees To Adopt Technology For Learning?

Classroom training can seem like a real treat. Especially when we consider that more than 3 quarters of people haven’t attended a course in the last two years. But if they’re not attending courses (even if they like them), then…

10 Years Of The iPhone And L&D Has Some Learning To Do

It’s unlikely to have escaped your attention over the last week that it’s 10 years since the iPhone was first unveiled. This is significant whether it’s your smartphone of choice or not, as it has provided the blueprint for subsequent handsets, tablets and phablets ever since.

Are you supporting employees with their work rather than their learning?

If, like many of your L&D peers, employees in your organisation tell you they prefer classroom training, it’s important to understand their preference in relation to the perceived alternatives. I say this because I don’t know anybody who hasn’t had their perception of online learning tarnished by some dreadfully tedious and wholly ineffective e-learning at some point or another. But before you go searching for better e-learning, it’s important to also recognise employee preferences, not…

The Empowered Learner

Workplace learning has changed dramatically in the past ten years and technology has been the primary driver of that change. However, it has not necessarily been learning solutions supplied by organisations that have been the game-changer. The way that technology has enabled workers to…

The ‘Less-Time-For-Better-Results’ Induction

Anybody who’s delivered Induction programmes before will know that, far too often, they’re packed full of content that new starters couldn’t possibly remember.

Organisations seem intent on overwhelming new starters with everything they need them to know on Day One:

“Our company was formed in blah blah blah… We started off as a widget maker… We now operate in all known solar systems…  Here’s the intranet. Here’s how you book holiday. This is what you do if…

Preparing Your Managers Before They Start Managing Your People

How soon after promotion does your company start formally developing managers? After a few weeks? A few months? Ideally you’d catch them on Day One, right?

Unfortunately, the reality is far from the ideal. I’ve known senior managers participating in their first formal management development…
