Construct Efficient On-line Coaching by Beginning with an Exercise

As we’ve talked about all through this weblog, the default for a lot of e-learning programs is to focus completely (or largely) on content material presentation. That is advantageous for some programs, however efficient on-line coaching requires that the content material is wrapped round some efficiency expectations and corresponding exercise the place the learner can observe and display competency.

In earlier posts we checked out two approaches to the Inform, Present, and Do mannequin:

In at the moment’s submit, we’re going to sort of flip the method and current an exercise first after which construct from there. I name this the HAT mannequin (as a result of coaching individuals like acronyms).

  • Fingers-on exercise: Earlier than you dive too deep into the small print of the instruction, create an exercise. It’s a good way to evaluate the place they’re at. Even for those who don’t use it as a proper evaluation, it helps the learner see the place they’re at. It additionally assists in clarifying goals as they work by an exercise to resolve some downside. If you wish to create an adaptive course of, you should utilize the exercise as a strategy to filter newcomers from tenured learners.
  • Recommendation: Through the exercise you present recommendation in response to the choices the learner makes. You can even collate the choices and outcomes of the exercise after which present recommendation as an choice to progress. For instance: do the exercise, supply recommendation, evaluate the exercise, after which last selections. The recommendation is a strategy to fill within the gaps that could be uncovered in the course of the exercise since they haven’t gotten all the content material upfront.
  • Inform: Full the exercise. Present suggestions as required throughout a debrief after which go into inform mode the place you may current extra structured content material and add extra element.

I like this method as a result of it engages the learner on the entrance finish. It does require extra forethought within the evaluation and design part than simply slapping collectively display after display of content material. And typically it may be a tough promote to prospects as a result of they anticipate extra linear kind presentation the place each attainable bullet level is uncovered.

Whatever the mannequin or approach you utilizing in setting up programs, crucial half is getting the learner to use and observe doing what they should do. This offers alternatives for suggestions and a method to guage their understanding of the content material. It additionally helps you progress the programs away from linear displays to one thing extra dynamic and efficient.
