Learning technology is a powerful tool. There are tons of great platforms and programs out there, but without a few key components, your team may not be getting the most out of the learning program in place. There are a lot of important methods to include in your learning technology, but this is one you shouldn’t compromise on.
What is this important principal that should always be present in your learning technology or training platform?
Make Progress Transparent
Why do we believe this is so vital? Here’s a few reasons:
- It creates greater engagement and buy-in.
- When you create greater engagement and buy-in, you’ll transform, not just the learning that you currently have in place, but learning in the future as well.
- Learners who can track their own progress are more motivated and actually learn more than learners who have to wait for supervisors’ updates.
Progress should always be available to the learner, so they can gauge where they are. This will help drive them to be more bought into the training, will push them to engage further with that training and develop their own learning goals.
This is just 1 of 5 different elements that we believe are vital for any learning technology you may be using. You can learn more about the other 4 right here.
