Step 3 of the Modernize Process. Recycling content with an eye towards improving its effectiveness and design requires the application of modern instructional design techniques to select reusable pieces of content. By recycling existing content, time, effort, and budget are all conserved during the development process when compared to new program development. The three key success criteria for recycling training content are future reusability, content modularization, and content searchability.

Recycle to Modernize

  1. 1. MODERNIZE Reduce Reuse Recycle Reuse instructionally sound training content to save time and money and maximize the ROI of your training programs.
  2. 2. WE HAVE A BIG PROBLEM
  3. 3. CONTENT DEPRECIATION Annual reuse rates of training programs hover around 50% annually. Meaning half of what you make each year goes in the trash.
  4. 4. Annual expenditure and time investment on new training program development exceeds the attention placed on maintaining legacy content by a wide margin. But…
  5. 5. Companies that maintain and reuse their learning assets enjoy a much better return on investment for training expenditure. Annual expenditure and time investment on new training program development exceeds the attention placed on maintaining legacy content by a wide margin. But…
  6. 6. REDUCING IS NOT ENOUGH Reducing unnecessary content and performing an audit improves legacy content quality and starts the process. However, auditing and reducing alone does not salvage quality content and put it back to use.
  7. 7. REDUCING AND REUSING IS NOT ENOUGH Reducing unnecessary content and Reusing instructional sound content still do not complete the process of stopping content depreciation.
  8. 8. THERE IS A WAYTO STOP THE LOSSES
  9. 9. By recycling existing content, time, effort, and budget are all conserved during the development process when compared to new program development. Recycle Content Step #3
  10. 10. THETHREE KEYSTO SUCCESS FUTURE USABILITY INTEROPERABILTY SEARCHABILITY
  11. 11. FUTURE REUSABILITY Training content that can be reused and continually offered for years into the future is an excellent investment.
  12. 12. TO FUTURE-PROOF YOUR CONTENT THINK OF THESE COMMON RULES3
  13. 13. Broad Statistics not Specific Data1 Vs.
  14. 14. Broad Statistics not Specific Data1 Using current annual statistics leads to future data inaccuracies. In turn, learners will perceive that training programs as outdated and irrelevant. Use mean statistical trends over a period of years to paint a broader factual picture for learners that doesn’t age. Vs.
  15. 15. 2 Interoperability not Compartmentalization
  16. 16. 2 Interoperability not Compartmentalization Can instructor-led training manuals be used by trainers both in- person and virtually? Can e-learning courses be accessed from desktop computers and mobile devices alike? Ensure that recycled content can live where learners have a need to access it.
  17. 17. 3 Timeless Examples not Current Events Five years from now, which leadership development example will have more cultural relevancy: Odysseus’ epic struggle to overcome a Cyclops, sirens, and Gods along with his own shortcomings as a man in the Odyssey, or the crude and Machiavellian rise of Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel?
  18. 18. 3 Timeless Examples not Current Events Five years from now, which leadership development example will have more cultural relevancy: Odysseus’ epic struggle to overcome a Cyclops, sirens, and Gods along with his own shortcomings as a man in the Odyssey, or the crude and Machiavellian rise of Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel? Illustrate training concepts with timeless examples rather than current events which may or may not be recognizable to learners years from now.
  19. 19. MODULARZATION Logically modularized training content ensure ease of access for learners that want to take a deeper dive into a particular subject area.
  20. 20. In Recycling legacy training programs, Modularization should mostly be applied to formerly lengthy and unwieldy course that were identified during the Reduce stage of content conservation. MODULARZATION Logically modularized training content ensure ease of access for learners that want to take a deeper dive into a particular subject area.
  21. 21. TO MODULARIZE YOUR CONTENT THINK OF THESE FRAMEWORKS2
  22. 22. 1 Micro-learning
  23. 23. 1 Micro-learning Job aids are meant to serve as a reference to workers on the job – and to that end, they are oftentimes highly succinct and information rich learning objects that can be reused for a variety of different purposes.
  24. 24. 2 Just-in-TimeTraining
  25. 25. 2 Just-in-TimeTraining Job aids are meant to serve as a reference to workers on the job – and to that end, they are oftentimes highly succinct and information rich learning objects that can be reused for a variety of different purposes.
  26. 26. SEARCHABILITY One of the most exciting was to recycle training content is to ensure that learning assets are properly tagged and stored for learners and learning and development team members.
  27. 27. TO CREATE SEARCHABILITY THINK OF THESE TOOLS2
  28. 28. 1 Metatags
  29. 29. 1 Metatags The work of going back and adding metatags to old learning assets is not exciting, but it holds immense potential for ensuring that learners and L&D staff can access training content on-demand.
  30. 30. 2 LMS’s and LCMS’s
  31. 31. 2 LMS’s and LCMS’s In the age of Google when learners are accustomed to having information directly at their fingertips, ensuring training content search ability and ease of access is extremely important.
