On Demand Training Moves Workplace Training to the Frontlines
Although structured-course learning remains an essential part of today's corporate training model, there's growing recognition that "on demand training" is just as important, if not more so. On demand training aims to provide effective support for the "informal learning" that occurs each and every day as workers on their own initiative seek out the information that they need to perform their jobs well. Recent U.S. Bureau of Labor research concluded that about two-thirds of contemporary workplace learning is of the informal type. Often, this "in-the-workflow" learning takes the form of Internet searching, with hit-or-miss results and questionable reliability. An on demand training solution can provide organizations with a more efficient and trustworthy resource to support frontline workflow learning.
