How multi-device elearning can enhance a formal learning programme

multiplatform learning in the workplace

Formal and long-form learning programmes such as staff induction courses or annual skills training often form a core part of an organisation’s training strategy, but they can raise challenges that can be overlooked. In this blog post we’ll look at the key features and benefits of multi-device elearning, and how they can help organisations overcome their own challenges and enhance their formal learning programmes.

Accessibility

Multi-device publishing

Face-to-face training days often come with associated travel or expenses costs, plus a disruption to working schedules. Multi-device elearning can save organisations time and money by enabling staff to access course content remotely, no matter where they’re based.

When using a content authoring tool such as gomo, all that’s needed is an internet connection to download the course content and it is then accessible offline, on any device.

Courses can be distributed either via a central cloud learning portal such as gomo central, via an app, an existing LMS, a direct link or even embedded into a website. All of these distribution methods can provide detailed analytics, allowing course tracking, quiz scores and more.

Design

Responsive and adaptive design

Designing a course that includes content that is both responsive and adaptive means that organisations can be sure that their training will be displayed as intended, no matter what device is being used.

Multilingual content

Providing training to colleagues overseas doesn’t have to be complicated or costly. The ability to have multi-language courses and simple translation means that just one course needs to be designed and it can then be distributed to all learners.

Learning blends

Smaller courses and complementary content

If traditional face-to-face learning is still required, multi-device courses can be introduced to create learning blends. This can help to break up a long day of traditional long-form training and add a new dimension to courses and content that the learner may already be familiar with (such as with annual training).

A blend could include the addition of mini elearning courses, complementary rich content, quizzes or feedback recording. These can be accessed on the learner’s own device if preferred, and with built-in analytics functionality, accessing the outcomes becomes quick and easy.
