Managing the Rate of Change in E-learning

by Ian Huckabee on April 3, 2015

E-learning Rate of ChangeLearning has seeded itself in practically every environment encountered by today’s worker. It has propagated beyond the LMS, beyond the classroom, beyond performance support tools. Increasingly, the distinction between work environments and learning environments is becoming obscure, and today’s successful learning initiatives anticipate tomorrow’s changes and improvements in developing and delivering learning and measuring its impact.

Our current state of mobility and the demand it has created for shorter content lengths, collaborative environments and personalized learning experiences are the primary drivers of this renaissance. While businesses grapple with what it means to be a digital organization, and as they deliberate over improvements to their current technologies and to their content development and messaging as it applies to these newer technologies, their audiences (workers, customers, brand advocates) consume various content at increasing rates, content that is seamlessly inserted into their lives by media providers who strategically employ the latest devices, platforms and channels that can reach them anywhere at any time with information that effectively changes behavior.

Moreover, these devices, platforms and channels – whether a computer, a mobile device, a social media channel, a native app, or any combination of these – are quickly interchanged and, in some cases, quickly discarded (by consumers and media providers alike) when they lose their popularity.

What remains is the content. When we hear phrases like mobile-first and cloud-first, most of us presuppose media to be content-first. With this post, we begin a series of blog articles in which we look at learning content and effective and sustainable learning strategies in the context of perpetual change – changes in the types of devices we use, our media environments, and the technologies that string them all together. We’ll look at underlying technologies, like the Experience API, that support learning in this new paradigm, and we’ll present strategies that can be used to launch successful learning initiatives that will survive continuing shifts in technology.

qwick-customDurham, North Carolina – April 1, 2015 – Weejee Learning, a global provider of custom, interactive and fun e-learning solutions, has been chosen by The America Cancer Society to create an interactive program to be utilized by Relay for Life volunteers. The customized training will assist in strengthening and enhancing the experience of committee members, event volunteers and ambassadors participating in the runs and walks hosted around the country.

For over 100 years, the American Cancer Society has worked relentlessly to help save lives and create a world with less cancer. The nonprofit’s Relay for Life signature fundraising event – an organized, overnight community walk in which teams of people camp out around a track taking turns walking – has raised nearly $5 billion to date with the help of more than 4 million people in over 20 countries each year. This year, as Relay for Life celebrates its 30th anniversary, the America Cancer Society is providing consistent training for all event volunteers to help make this fundraising event even more successful.

Weejee is designing a complete and comprehensive training program using its unique Qwick Custom themes, pre-built courses with the instructional design completed. The program includes 13 e-learning modules that will engage volunteers by using actual volunteer scenarios, success stories and real-life examples. By leveraging gamification elements, Weejee will increase volunteer engagement and accelerate training completion. A short video review of the project can be seen at: http://weejeelearning.com/volunteer-training/.

“American Cancer Society has a long and impactful history in the fight against cancer,” said Ian Huckabee, CEO of Weejee. “We’re excited to provide our strengths and expertise to be a part of this powerful work. The volunteer training will draw upon past success stories while looking toward the future to create sustainable interactive solutions that American Cancer Society can utilize over time.”

Weejee helps organizations like the American Cancer Society realize the proven effectiveness of incorporating fun and engagement into e-learning initiatives through award-winning thought leadership and technological innovation and consulting. The company has steadily grown since its founding in 2010 and especially in the last year in which it has added six key team members and received U.S. General Services Administration vendor approval.
