The way we work is changing.

And the way we train employees must change too.

The problem is enterprise training is still rooted in traditional methods.

To truly understand the challenges facing this industry. Let’s rewind, all the way back to the beginning.

It was the Industrial Revolution and factories were booming they needed a way to train factory workers cheaply and quickly.

Classroom learning became the training method of choice.

For simple instructions, classroom learning worked but as machines became more complex employees struggled to remember and apply the theoretical lessons to their hands-on work.

Eventually employers learned that classroom training wasn’t as efficient as it might appear.

They began providing employees with self-study materials.

But they still couldn’t afford to completely remove the teacher from the equation.

Someone needed to prepare the materials and supervise the process.

Let’s fast forward about a hundred years to the birth of machine-based learning.

In 1954, a Harvard professor came up with the first “teaching machine”

This technology, although crude, enabled students to learn at their own pace, test themselves, and receive instant feedback with a few pulls of a lever.

As computers became common in the workplace, the natural next step for employee training was computer-based.

Computer learning, and later, video-based lectures allowed employees to self-learn from the comfort of their own desks.

Although video was excellent for initial training, the feedback loop was flawed.

There was also no way to brush up on material or search for a specific term without rewatching an entire video.

In today’s digital age, our workplace is fundamentally changed.

We use tens if not hundreds of digital tools, and this presents new challenges.

It’s forcing HR and training managers to rethink the whole employee training game.

We believe the key to successful training is focusing on context.

If we eliminate the gap between theoretical training and practical use, create instant feedback and smart guidance employees can easily learn to be successful at anything.
