The benefits of taking your training digital

By implementing a digital training programme, you are helping to future-proof your organisation by ensuring your workforce remains knowledgeable and confident in their roles. Corporate businesses are also witnessing how the dynamics of the work environment are changing, with the growth of freelancing and hot desking. If freelancing continues to grow at its current rate, the majority of US workers will be freelancing by 2027. Moving forward with digital training can help deliver high-quality, but consistent training to all employees, including those who work from home.

Wranx is leading the way into the age of digital training. Wranx delivers effective reinforcement training by combining established memory science with a platform that is tailored towards individual learning. Its unique approach starts with repackaging your training material into bite-sized chunks which takes each learner just 2–3 minutes each day to complete. When also considering the power of microlearning, this ensures your workforce embeds crucial knowledge in their long-term memories more effectively and without having to spend hours away from their duties.

Benefits of digital training

Digital training allows learning to become more flexible, without employees being restricted to allocated classroom sessions. The flexibility of Wranx is what makes it an ideal reinforcement tool for employees, as learning can be completed at their convenience on any device, at any time.  With features such as the Media Hub, additional learning resources are also available to reinforce learnt information, closing knowledge gaps.

Digital learning is personalised to each individual and reduces the need for multiple training sessions which do not cater to everyone’s preferred learning style.  Wranx uses a unique algorithm that helps identify areas of improvement for each learner, which then determines how frequently content is scheduled in the future for effective reinforcement. This creates individual learning paths that can’t be experienced with classroom training and also highlights to the employer what subject areas employees are struggling with, helping to inform their Learning and Development strategy.

The combination of flexibility and personalisation within learning strategies has shown to be extremely effective for employees and results in higher knowledge retention. It is scientifically proven that without reinforcement humans begin to forget information at a rapid pace, particularly if it’s delivered in large quantities. Wranx combines microlearning and Spaced Repetition to effectively reinforce existing knowledge, but in more digestible sizes that are relevant to the learner.

Knowledge attrition is an expensive flaw, but one that can be fixed with effective digital training. A blended learning method, combining both the elements of face-to-face and independent computer-based learning, is significantly more cost-effective because it ensures the value of the initial training is not lost.

Looking to the future

Moving into the future, it is important to remember that technology is not going to replace current corporate training methods, as many organisations feel that face-to-face collaboration is still an essential part of learning and success. Organisations can utilise the advantages of digital technology to enhance their Learning and Development strategies, creating a blended approach. After all, digital learning can provide personalisation, flexibility and higher knowledge levels while reducing time and cost elements involved in organising classroom sessions.
