Responding to Fosway’s Learning Trends to Watch for 2022, over the last few weeks we’ve reflected on how Learning Pool has been ahead of the curve in terms of personalized, hybrid learning and intelligence-led learning. Today, we’re considering the challenges of creating a unified learning experience and how our suite of products have been designed to help organizations deliver learning in the workflow.
The learning technologies industry can be a minefield for L&D departments when making decisions about implementing new strategies, technologies, and content. In the original blog, David Perring, Director of Research at Fosway, poses: Do you go LXP or LMS? Is learning embedded in your workflow? Or is learning a part of your talent mobility system or Cloud HR solution? When you need a specific portal for a specific change program, how do you manage content, audiences, and touch-points for learners at the same time? Throwing blended learning into the mix, David also wonders how we adapt to a learner’s context, trigger engagement, and integrate multiple sources of content at once.
The challenge here is to unify how you manage the learning experience regardless of whether it’s targeting career development or just-in-time learning. L&D teams need to be able to manage the resources, courses, skills, and campaigns across all these various contexts. Most likely, it’ll take an ecosystem of solutions to deliver the diversity you require and creating a unified learning experience may be more about your ability to connect the backend of these solutions than the front end.
When it comes to learning tech, the LXP really does do what it says on the tin. According to our 2019 guide, ‘Creating a Learning Experience That Gets Real Results’, the key elements of an LXP include: content authoring, workflow learning, personalization, campaigns, and analytics. Fundamentally, these are also all key elements of a truly immersive and unified learning experience.
This combination, an ecosystem of tools, allows for the learning experience to be engaging by making content easy to find, highly accessible, and relevant. An LXP can transform learning from an event-based, single-point-of-reference approach to an immersive environment where learning depth and retention are significantly increased. Online learning has become so hugely dependent on since the start of the pandemic and the LXP has enabled learning to fit more into the workflow, becoming an essential tool to getting work done rather than being regarded as an interruption.
Our Stream has come a long way since then, now existing as our most comprehensive learning suite to date. But at its core, it still combines the best in learning management, content development, and reporting analytics, offering everything you need to deliver engaging, dynamic, and unified learning experiences that get results every time.
