Visualizing is the Key
-- Are you the type of learner who enjoys learning a new system application with a brightly colored user guide with screenshots, callouts and arrows?
-- Do you have to have a live person guide you through the process step-by-step in the classroom environment?
-- Or maybe you like self-paced learning and enjoy going through interactive tutorials online with audio and animation?
Pictures, color, and graphics are definitely more captivating then black and white text, but are you retaining more information. Statistics show that this is actually true. Dr. Ruth Clark actually believes that a balance of white space and graphics/images on the page significantly improve learner retention rates.
If you are implementing a new training plan for your organization be sure to find out how your users/clients or employees learn best. Call in a professional, such as Graphik Connexions, for a needs analysis before you throw away those hard earned Training and Development dollars. E-Learning may be the way to go or perhaps a simple job aide is all you need.
Let's talk about "What is E-Learning?" E-Learning is learning that can take place anytime and anywhere, whether the delivery is online or offline, the WWW, CD or DVD. Some of terms you may be familiar with are CBT and WBT, computer-based training and web-based training respectively. E-Learning allows your users to learn at their own pace, no pressure or time restraints, no time away from their daily job tasks, and no costly travel expenses.
Users can stop, pause, rewind, fast forward and much more in CBT. WBT allows the user to have a "live" instructor guide them through the process as well as allowing them to demonstrate the skills they just learned in various exercises. Some of the platforms used for WBT are WebEx and Breeze.
