Daily Buzz: What Is The Ideal Format For Your Learning Program?

Many factors play into the answer

So, you’ve identified a learning program opportunity. The question is, what is the most effective way to deliver this content?

A lot of factors play into the answer, says the WBT Systems team on its blog.

For starters, if your organization already has a credentialing program, does the topic fit its requirements? Then there’s the matter of budget. What can your team afford to design and deliver effectively?

“If you foresee a program having a long shelf life without the need for regular updates, you can afford to invest in instructional design for a course,” the team writes. “If the program is on a regularly changing topic, consider formats that are less expensive to design, such as webinars or standalone modules.”

Because the program is for members, it’s also important to understand what they will be most receptive to.

“If your target audience aren’t natural students with a high motivation for learning, you may want to break up courses into a series of smaller programs as part of a learning pathway,” the team says. “Find a way to give learners a faster sense of achievement and progress. Their sense of progress will motivate them to register for the next program.”
