How to Optimize Just-in-time Informal Learning 2-13-2014

Published on

Today, there are significant gaps when it comes to optimally using on-demand, just-in-time, informal learning. Why is that? And, why is just-in-time learning taking a backseat to formal course development, especially when the ROI benefits suggest so much upside potential?

Join Bryan Chapman, chief learning strategist with The Chapman Alliance as we explore the reasons why this important area of learning is lagging behind.

Learn the how to’s for creating and executing on an informal learning strategy that:

-plans for the core of informal learning, including on-demand accessibility, personalization, analytics (building a self-reinforcing model), and systematically keeping learning up to date
-creates a strategic vision that encompasses the main learning types (structured, informal and coaching/mentoring)
-applies content management best practices for optimal efficiency
-identifies and cultivate the skills needed to create excellent just-in-time learning

Bryan Chapman, a recognized thought leader, has been in the learning industry for over 20 years, providing strategic consulting, guidance and advice to organizations such as American Express, Home Depot, the American Red Cross, Ken Blanchard, IBM, Honda, and the U.S. State Department.

  19. 19. Why Just-in-time? (recap) Informal On-demand, just-in-time, just enough • Anywhere, anytime, and anyplace • Learning right at the moment of need, at the point of performance • Personalization (exactly what is needed in the format of choice) • Analytics are the key to measuring ROI and the impact of learning on organizational results (Level 4) • Constantly up-to-date through regular maintenance of informal learning objects (iLO’s) • Content can map directly to structured/formal learning and social/collaborative/learning communities • Important part of the Learning Technology ecosystem 19

  21. 21. Why Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) are ideally suited for informal, just-in-time • Complete separation of content delivery format • Modular content can be repurposed and reused in structured/formal learning (eLearning courses, instructor guides, student guides, classroom visuals, job aids, etc.) without re-building • Using traditional methods of digital content authoring requires a separate development for each output type • Tree view structure and object-oriented view of a central repository, team development, provides a natural taxonomy of learning content. 21

  25. 25. ROI Metrics: sources that will help you build a business case for informal, just-in-time, mobile, etc. • “The personal cloud will replace the personal computer at the center of users’ digital lives.” Gartner Research. [Personalization] • Employees spend about 23% or their working hours, searching for and gathering information that will help them do their jobs. – McKinsey Global Institute (link http://tinyurl.com/productivitythrusocial) • Companies that deployed mobile learning (survey respondents) said that they saw a 52% improvement in performance and an 83% increase in making learning available to users. The eLearning Guild • Most companies are still spending 70% of their training budgets of formal training that covers 10% of the organization’s development needs. Multiple sources. • Only 23% of line leaders reports being satisfied with the overall Effectiveness of the learning and development role [suggesting that 77% are unsatisfied] – Corporate Leadership Council 25
  26. 26. Skills Needed for Informal Learning Development Thinking Modular  Keeping Content Lean and to the Point  Keep it Simple  Agile, non-linear development  Working with a taxonomy  Using Simple Media  Making content visual/relevant  Concise, Step by Step  Thinking about Multiple Outputs  Design Main Path, Allow for More Detail (if wanted)  26
