Experience Matters OLX for Learning Experience Design: Making Sense of Week 4

Join the OLX here:

Last week the facilitated portion of Experience Matters OLX: A Crash Course in Learning Experience Design came to an end.

As usual, there’s no need to panic as the course will remain open indefinitely – there’s still plenty of time to get up-to-date.

After introducing our Learning Experience Platform, Stream LXP (formerly Curatr) to the world in September 2018, our aim for the LXP OLX was to delve into what is meant by the industry’s latest ‘buzzword’, as well as what it takes to make a meaningful and engaging learning experience.

Over the last four weeks, we’ve covered various elements we believe to be vital in designing the most effective learning experience for you employees. From social and personalized learning to interpreting your learning data, we’ve discussed it all.

Let’s recap on the key learning points from the first three weeks.

Key Learning Points – Recap

By now, we hope you all have a reasonably clear idea as to what we mean by the Learning Experience Platform (LXP). But for good measure, it can be defined as a cloud-based learning solution that focuses on delivering a personalized user experience. Building on the foundations laid by the LMS, the LXP looks to curate and aggregate content, create learning and career pathways, and build on skills development in the workplace.

The LXP is underpinned by Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Firmly rooted in the outcome of results and the application of skills, CPD is a combination of approaches, ideas and techniques that provide learners with the ability to manage their own learning journeys and professional growth.

Today, the LXP represents a change in modern learning experiences with workplace training initiatives centering on the development of the employee, rather than a forced stream of compliance-focused activities.

A beloved feature of Stream LXP (formerly Curatr), we explored how social learning and gamification elements help to boost engagement and motivation among learners.

This, coupled with personalized learning journeys and AI-driven recommended content, help to keep learners on track with their learning goals, and ensures every learner has the necessary tools to reach their individual career goal.

Finally, the data and analytics functionality of the LXP enables organizations to analyze the rich learning data they have already have access to through the Learning Record Store (LRS). In doing so, organizations can begin to prove the impact training is having on the growth of their business, as well as their Return on Investment (ROI).

Once again, we would like to extend our thanks to all participants of this latest OLX. We hope you enjoyed the four weeks just as much as we did! Like always, the course will remain open for you to recap on key learning points across all four weeks, or if you’re a little late to the party there’s still plenty of time to enroll.
