Learning Pool Labs


Learning Pool Labs 2019

The vision for Learning Pool Labs 2019 was to solicit innovations that would help ‘Learning Pool Labs Save the World‘ and centred on 3 key themes:

How to Save Your Brain – Concepts that consider new interfaces between humans and computers. How might we apply them in the quest for returning instant knowledge?

How to Save L&D – Looking to improve business productivity in one of two broad categories; learning more efficiently (fewer hours for the same output) or value-added learning (improving the quality of products/services to drive a rising income).

How to Save the Workforce – Seeking to re-skill the workforce in a massively scalable manner. Ideas for training a million new learners in a range of future-proof skills.

The 2019 Winner: Flo v2.0

Flo is Stream‘s personalized learning chatbot, linking learners to relevant content using natural language search and directing them to their assigned learning to help learning become part of the daily routine. 

The proposal for Flo v2.0 builds on existing technology to extend performance support interactions to include a wider range of elearning activity. Continuing our efforts to ‘put learning into the workflow’, Flo v2.0 has been designed to display learning interactions within Flo’s chat window. 

Through this, the completion of training has the potential to become more efficient. Imagine simply answering a mandatory question within your communications channel. Imagine facilitating spaced practice with any content. Then, combine this functionality with our Adapt Builder to mean anyone could quickly author this ‘bot’ facilitated questions and content. 


Learning Pool Labs 2020

The world is very different today to that of a year ago, and whilst the changes are hopefully only temporary, their legacy is likely to be much longer lived. But as we return to ‘normal’ what will the legacy of lockdown be? What have we learned and what will never quite return to the way it was?

This is what Learning Pool colleagues are being asked to consider for Learning Pool Labs 2020. How can we make what we do so good that it exceeds the expectations of the old ways? Not just looking to replace, but to innovate and improve. And in an increasingly virtual world, how can we achieve the following?

  • Create high impact remote learning experiences 
  • Surpass the experience of the face-to-face event
  • Support, engage and upskill remote workforces

Learning Pool Labs is back for 2020! This is an internal process but we'd still love to hear your thoughts on how we can create impact in a virtual world. Share your ideas with us on social media using #LearningPoolLabs. And stay tuned, we'll share more on the outcome of the 2020 initiative soon!
