ECO115 Using Nano-learning in Onboarding

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 16

Ecosystem - Content


Today’s market requires faster onboarding; often there is overlap or confusion between process and training. Staff are overwhelmed by information in the initial stages of their performance and often forget or don’t have the opportunity to apply the why and the how of what they have learned in an appropriate timeframe.

In this session, you will learn about the role nano-learning can play in your onboarding strategy. You will learn how staff can be trained faster and on an on-demand basis by embedding nano-learning modules within reference manuals. You’ll learn how learners receive training when it is needed and training that is tied directly to the process being completed, resulting in quicker onboarding for staff, a one-stop shopping for process and training, and ultimately enhanced performance due to the availability of on-demand training.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to determine the critical information to be included in a nano-learning module
  • How to assess whether or not a nano-learning module will enhance a process
  • How to structure a nano-learning module specifically to pair with reference material
  • How to review metrics to determine the benefit of a nano-learning module, as well as potential actions to be taken

Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.
