Adaptive Learning: Need for the year 2020
Updated: Nov 25, 2019
Hey Team! Have you ever thought to use Adaptive learning to help your learner’s performance enhancement? If not then, what are you waiting for? Let's connect and discuss how we can assist you in modifying your training materials by using Adaptive Learning.
Adaptive learning does not work with traditional learning. It has changed the formula. In Adaptive Learning, every learner starts with a common starting point but their path gets changed on their selection of answers and the technology feed them a different way or set of questions to finish their course or training.
Adaptive learning is based on different branching content or content that does not follow a unidirectional path only. It works according to learner’s interaction with the course content. It allows them to skip the content, which they already know and they can prioritise their learning by choosing one-thing first and other things later.
Adaptive learning gives chances to the learner to get more practice on a skill they are weak or struggling with. Well designed adaptive learning presents information to a learner when they actually need it. It targets the unique need of an individual and supports them with an immediate (Just in Time) feedback, individual pathways, and learning resources rather than based on one-size fits all learning experience.
IMPLEMENTATION OF ADAPTIVE LEARNING IN CORPORATE TRAINING
Adaptive Learning is going to be a boom in 2020 corporate training initiatives. It provides different methods & learning paths that are unique to every individual learner.
• Personalized Learning: Adaptive learning helps the organisation with focused attention. Adaptive learning provides an individual learner path according to their tasks, behaviours and responses to their assigned courses or training materials by using different Algorithms in the backend.
• Improved Time to Efficiency: Adaptive learning allows learners to skip the content, which they are aware of, and enable them to focus and prioritise the content. It helps the organisation to save learner’s time which they are spending on learning already learned topics.
• Assessments based on Learners confidence: Adaptive learning exploits a confidence-based assessment practice to check the current understanding of an individual learner. Learners get scenarios, situations to answer questions on the content they claim to confident about. Adaptive learning takes a question-based approach to identify or probe what the learner knows and where they have gaps. It gives you data to analyse an individual or a group performance.
• Training Updating due to frequent information changes: Traditional online training or approaches doesn’t allow or track accurately what an individual has learned and could not adjust if they did, and it makes difficult to add material without making a learner repeat or go through the entire content. It wastes a lot of time of your learners and reduces learner engagement. Adding the new content or material as a supplement may help for those who have already appeared for the course or completed in past, but it can confuse the new learners because of improper sync in events, or topics. Solutions for such scenario is again adaptive learning. When any new changes to the courses happen adaptive learning helps in triggers the system and platform to identify what a learner has already covered in the previous attempt and help your learners with new areas to be mastered.
Adaptive learning in 2020 will definitely solve pressing challenges that corporate and learners face by custom tailoring the learning paths and creating an individual learning path. It will definitely help organisations to streamline their Learning & Training with a more focused approach for knowledge retention and implementation of learned principles to their Jobs.
