Whatever stage you’re at in the development of your learning ecosystem, LEO Learning can help.
What Is a Learning Ecosystem?
In today’s technology-driven world, your organization is likely using a lot of different products and services to support Learning & Development.
You might have authoring tools to create content, hosting services to house and deliver content, data capture tools and services to record all kinds of learner data, and hundreds of other systems, tools, and processes that all meet various needs in different ways.
A learning ecosystem brings together all of these interconnected systems, tools, and technologies to deliver an integrated and networked, data-driven learning service within your organization’s existing technical infrastructure.
What Are the Benefits of a Learning Ecosystem?
When you connect all of your products and services together you can deliver a seamless learning experience that makes use of the technology that your people use on a daily basis This means your learners can access all kinds of content, events, and experiences through a single front-end.
A learning ecosystem also enables you to capture standardized and ready-to-use data on learning activity in your organization, giving you visibility on the impact that learning has on your organization’s performance.
How Can We Support Your Learning Ecosystem Development?
We understand that every organization is at a different level of complexity or maturity with their learning ecosystem and has different constraints from their existing technical infrastructure. Perhaps you don’t yet have any interconnected tools or experiences, or you have an overwhelming array of systems and services, or maybe you’re somewhere in-between.
At whatever point you are in your learning ecosystem journey, we can help. If you’re getting started with a learning ecosystem, we can:
Provide education: We’ll create awareness around learning ecosystems, define them, share examples, and help you evaluate ways in which your organization may benefit from well thought-through integration. We often support L&D teams to build a business case to get started with a learning ecosystem.
Review your ecosystem and define your roadmap: We will review your current collection of systems, tools, and processes (whether or not you’re calling it an ecosystem yet) against your business and L&D goals. Then we create a plan for getting from where you are to where you want to be.
