Joint Session Features Real-World Examples; Examines Learning & Development’s Role in Leading Digital Transformation at Scale
Intrepid ran a three week MOOC for learning leaders to help them build a blueprint for digitally transforming the way learning happens in their organizations in June of this year. If you missed it, no worries! In this blog series, you will find a quick distillation of our POV and of our audience’s insights.
Intrepid’s GM, Sam Herring, was recently asked questions about “the learner experience” for a Training Industry podcast and it got an email ‘roundtable’ started amongst some of our colleagues. Here is the collective wisdom about the all-important learner experience.
So Just What Does “Learner Experience” Mean?
The guest speakers in our recent Build Your Digital Learning Blueprint MOOC—all experts in their field and active senior learning leaders—shared a number of resources they think are the best things for instructional designers to be reading/watching, and here they are for you to peruse and learn from as well. Learning professionals are always learning about learning, and this list is a great place to look for new inspiration.
Intrepid's GM and founder Sam Herring was interviewed along with Dr Tom Tonkin of Cornerstone on Demand for Training Industry's podcast about "the learner experience".
If I say “Corporate Training Video,” what comes to mind? A nervous, unfocused lecturer? Badly scripted, badly acted scenarios that just don’t ring true? Droning instructions read by a voice actor who clearly has no earthly idea what they’re talking about?
We've got a great webinar coming up and encourage you to register today!
WHY YOU SHOULD BE DOING THEM
Conducting Voice of the Learner sessions will enable you to see how your learners are actually interacting with your online learning experience and to get their honest thoughts and reactions—it's usability testing by a friendlier, and more learner-centric, name. By conducting Voice of the Learner sessions, you’ll understand how your site is actually working for learners and be able to make informed decisions on how to make improvements before you launch the program to your full cohort.
We are delighted to announce a few of the guest speakers who will be sharing their expertise and advice with participants in our Build Your Digital Learning Blueprint program, which starts June 4th.
