Learning and development leaders are continuing to recognize the importance of investing in an adaptive learning strategy that is customizable to meet the needs of today’s modern learner. With that in mind, it is essential to gather and analyze learning data and behavior patterns to create a personalized learning experience and effective training program.
In the third and final part of our series on “learning at the speed of search” we give practical advice for setting up successful search-based learning systems that support self-paced online training. Our first two posts focused on why search matters in learning, and the technical capabilities required for effective search-based programs.
The previous blog in this series discussed why search is critical to effective online learning and development programs. According to a LinkedIn article, "the majority of LMS buyers cite ineffective search as the primary reason they’re looking for a new solution." This blog will discuss the key technical capabilities for search that L&D executives should look for when purchasing a content delivery solution.
Learning and development organizations are increasingly moving away from instructor-led training (ILT) to online, on-demand training sessions, and replacing teachers with online knowledge portals, learning paths and strong search capabilities. This move makes learning more convenient for students, reduces training costs and empowers students to take control of their learning.
