As organisations have become more decentralised, encouraging a collaborative online training community should become more of a focus for L&D departments. It will keep your department relevant and set your training initiatives up for success.
Keeping learners engaged requires a mindset and culture of individual growth and collaboration. An active community platform helps strengthen a culture and allow employees to align around commonly-shared goals in a secure and efficient way.
Creating course programming that engages corporate learners and keeps them coming back for more is key. This involves spending time and attention to your online course development, training format, and tools you use. This is where FUEL’s learning academy management services come into play. Our in-house experts can assist your L&D team with curricula development and analyse areas which need attention, making sure your learners are on track and making optimal use of your training platform.
It is not just content that’s important, but the whole training programme and user experience. Unified online training platforms such as FUEL Learn, with its range of community-based features, help improve effectiveness.
Flexibility and scale
FUEL’s online learning platform can allow trainers to deliver live group sessions, archive previous training sessions, manage and schedule events, build community through forums and chat, and promote courses in one place.
This solution can also reduce production costs because a library of content gets naturally built up along the way. Planning your curriculum ahead of time is vital however, in order to maintain a good flow that meets your training goals.
Live course creation save a huge amount of time creating high production value content modules. It also allows a lot of flexibility as trainers can edit on the fly, updating content and adding fresh information as they go.
Surveys, progress tracking and motivation through personalised reminders delivered via SMS help keep remote staff engaged and accountable.
Community forums and scheduled live events and webinars enable L&D professionals to keep in constant contact with a steady flow of information going to their network. Keep your training community engaged with updates, incentives and continual learning.
Another benefit of building an online training community with FUEL Learn, is the ease of networking and building talent within your own resource pool. Trainers get the benefit of cross-collaboration as isolation is reduced and collaboration is easy, ultimately offering more value to the people they train.
Building an active community can be done easily and efficiently with the community learning features FUEL can build into your online learning platform. We can enable your organisation to have a learning environment that connects your people and helps create a stronger culture while increasing employee retention.
