ECO313 What Netflix and Facebook Can Teach Us About Corporate Training

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, March 16

Ecosystem - Processes


Netflix knows what you want to watch because its algorithm interprets audience data and weighs those insights against the content in its library. With each like and click, Facebook continues to build an empire around the idea that social media can be as personal as your name. Every experience is catered to the individual, except the way employees are trained. Calculating the ROI for employee development can be costly and difficult, yet with the 21st century economy becoming more dependent on knowledge workers, on-demand skill development is critical to success.

In this session, you will learn the fundamentals of adaptive learning and the power of employee engagement. You will explore how personalized, adaptive learning works and how it can keep employees engaged. You’ll see how personalized, adaptive learning has the potential to deliver the development that employees need and when they need it, along with the learning analytics that give their organizations the insight to justify their investment.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What makes learning personalized
  • How adaptive learning inference algorithms make training more effective
  • How scaling adaptive learning cuts profit and loss
  • Why mastery learning is important to a personalized learning system
