We are excited to announce that this year we are Gold Sponsors at the Learning and Development Asia 2019 conference in Manila. Back for its third straight year, the conference is going to be bigger and better than before. From our previous experience, this truly is a conference designed for HR professionals by HR professionals. This event is an opportunity for us to come together, share our expertise, learn from the best and help drive our organisations and industries forward.
As a premier eLearning provider, Site Online Learning helps leading organisations transition from traditional learning to eLearning. With a footprint that spans over 15 countries, our team gets to work alongside some of the best and brightest HR and Learning & Development professionals around the world. We provide strategic assistance to organisations that want to effectively develop their workforce and ensure that they have the tools to succeed.
This year we are going to be focusing on scenario-based eLearning experiences. It’s an effective method for organisations to move past the traditional eLearning experience. With the current business environment and level of competition in many Asian countries, this could be the solution that helps give you the competitive edge.
For those unaware of what scenario-based eLearning is, it is an educational delivery method that is highly engaging and uses real-life scenarios that help employees develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. With this form of eLearning, the employee is placed in a virtual environment where they are taught to deal with scenarios and situations that they are likely to face in real life. For example, for your customer service agent, it could mean dealing with an angry customer. For a sales team member it could mean having to run through a sales pitch in an environment with lots of interruptions and distractions. The goal of this form of eLearning is to:
- Provide a personalised solution to help your employees deal with challenges unique to them.
- Create a safe space where they can think rationally (rather than emotionally)
- Work through challenges and learn to make smart decisions on the go
For an employee, scenario-based eLearning is a great way to engage with educational material, develop decision making skills, and become more effective at their role.
For organisations, this type of eLearning is extremely beneficial too. It is an effective training technique when developing employees in-house. Some of the benefits include:
- The ability to run highly complex scenarios without the overhead costs or loss of resources
- Research has also shown that scenario-based eLearning reduces the overall time required for learners to get familiar with new concepts, therefore reducing the impact L&D has on operational efficiencies.
If you would like to know more about scenario-based eLearning and see examples of projects we have delivered in the past make sure you don’t miss out on our General Manager Andlen Go and Learning Experience Design Manager Liezl Ramos’s keynote at 2:30pm at this year’s Learning & Development Asia 2019 conference. During the keynote, they will discuss this eLearning method in more detail and talk through how it’s helping our clients achieve their goals.
In addition to the keynote, our team will also be available at a booth in the exhibition area. Come have a chat with us, try some of our augmented reality apps, and claim your free consultation. We are looking forward to learning more about how your organisation develops its best and brightest employees.
