COVID Has Set the Stage for L&D Reinvention

“COVID-19 has caused a lot of less-than-optimal virtual trainings to be developed,” says Ann Rollins, a solutions architect with The Ken Blanchard Companies. “Too often we're hearing about a learning experience that was once a six-and-a-half-hour face-to-face training course being ‘virtualized’ into a six-and-a-half-hour virtual instructor-led training course.”

“That’s certainly not the best way to design virtual training, nor is it the best use of our learners’ time,” says Rollins.

“When the goal is just to get a check for completion, the tendency is to build something in a familiar form. To create truly memorable learning experiences, we need to be thinking about more complex architectures that look at ways to maximize existing resources and technologies.”
