Agile learning keeps learners learning in an evolving world
Living in a digital era means we have access to absolutely everything right at our fingertips – from transport to food, right down to shopping for clothes. Digital transformation has completely revolutionised the way we live our lives, including the way we learn.
According to Richard Rayne, CEO of iLearn – a national learning solutions business, COVID-19 has further disrupted the learning and development industry, paving the way for remote or virtual instructor-led learning. Therefore, the need to adapt to this ever-evolving digital age is more important than ever, and one way of doing this is through agile learning.
iLearn uses agile learning principles when designing corporate training courses and has recently launched their 2021 virtual instructor-led Short Course Calendar. This mode of learning offers students the opportunity to learn when and where they want, at a pace that suits them. Further, it gives learners the opportunity to consume content in short bursts from a variety of subjects and enables them to apply their new knowledge in their workplace immediately, instantly boosting their productivity.
“The goal of agile learning is to change the way learners perceive courses and in turn, the way they manage them. We spend most of our day consuming content on our digital devices, so making learning accessible via multiple platforms just makes sense. Digital transformation has shifted our brains towards hyper attention – dealing with multiple forms of content on multiple platforms at once, with a low boredom tolerance,” Rayne says.
