Our Learning Ecosystem Approach and Benefits
Since the first iterations of LMS platforms the supporting and surrounding technology has improved far beyond the expectations of the original pioneers of digital learning. These improvements are what enables us to integrate vastly more data, drawing from a range of systems to create a platform that permeates and records what we term as a ‘Learning Ecosystem’. More than a fixed environment, the word ‘ecosystem’ implies complex interactions, interdependencies, structured communities and a space in which the ecosystem exists
The value and relevance of soft skills as a key element in the development of a competent employee cannot be overstated. Given the nature of soft skills in the workplace and an identified gap for capturing or assessing an individual’s competency, experience or compliance then a traditional LMS (teach and test) is simply not capable of meeting the needs of organisations’ learning objectives or outcomes. A learning ecosystem presents the best opportunity to engage across the entire organisation, its sources of relevant structured or unstructured data, which is mostly disparate, and between the individual or the communities in which personnel conduct their day-to-day activities.
In spite of ever-changing and attractive learning offerings and evolving corporate learning strategies, many Learning & Development and HR professionals are still struggling with learner engagement. Organisations must refine their learning offering and internal capabilities in order to meet the demands of the modern, connected Learner. The competition for attention is fierce.
One of the primary aims is to improve communities through the improvement of communications, connectivity and visibility of information. Doing so enables organisations to support research methodologies, professional engagement and human connections to strengthen the context within which these communities operate.
