A DIGITAL LEARNING WORLD FOR YOUR COMPANY
Aktualisiert: 4. Feb. 2021
What has already become standard for many universities, especially when we think of distance learning universities, for example, is still a large unknown field for many companies: we are talking about digital learning worlds. With them, companies can also use the numerous advantages and potential of digitalisation for the continuous development of their employees. The "digital learning world" can sometimes be a rather abstract term, which we would like to explain in a detailed way for you in the following.
Learn about digital learning worlds for companies in more detail in this article and find out from SWISSTEACH why it will also be worthwhile for your company.
WHAT ACTUALLY IS A DIGITAL LEARNING WORLD? KEYWORD E-LEARNING.
In order to explain digital learning worlds for companies, it is first necessary to take apart the term of digital learning worlds and show what it is exactly all about:
Digital: The term digital describes that the learning world is supported by digital technologies. In the vast majority of cases digital platforms are used, which thus go even one step further and form the entire framework for learning.
Learning world: A learning world is a (virtual) space in which continuing education takes place. Knowledge is conveyed in one way or another, for example through documents, videos, etc., as well as through teachers who are in this room at the same time or who convey their knowledge via video.
After all of that, in terms of digital learning worlds for companies, both come together, just like in all other learning worlds as well. A methodical mixture of learning, which in this case takes place digitally. In modern terms, this is also known as E-Learning.
WHY ARE DIGITAL LEARNING WORLDS A GOOD IDEA FOR COMPANIES?
For nearly every company, the market is highly competitive and only those who constantly adapt to the changing market conditions can survive. What sounds a bit dramatic at first actually only shows that companies must not rest. In other words: only those who constantly develop can remain. With regard to companies, this naturally means that employees must be constantly trained for their daily work. And precisely at this point the digital learning world is of great benefit to companies!
HOW CAN COMPANIES BENEFIT FROM DIGITAL LEARNING WORLDS
E-learning or the digital learning world has the particular advantage that new things can be learned whenever and wherever the user wants to access them. In comparison, however, digital learning worlds offer many more advantages over classical learning worlds:
In online formats the number of methodological possibilities is simply enormous.
The whole thing takes place decentralized and is therefore possible without a great deal of travel.
Since the courses can be easily reproduced and can usually be used several times without any more effort digital learning worlds are extremely affordable.
Access is fast and very flexible. Long planned courses are just as possible as spontaneous participation.
Digital learning worlds are accessible from anywhere and with various devices. This means that users are independent of their workplace and do not necessarily have to stick to certain times. Learning is just as easy on the bus on the way to work as it is on the couch in the evening.
WHAT FORMATS AND IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL LEARNING WORLDS FOR COMPANIES?
If you think back to school lessons, you will find various formats there as well. Besides the classic, frontal lecture, there was group work, collaboration in plenary, preparation and follow-up and much more. Depending on the goal, digital learning worlds for companies also support such diverse formats. However, they can do even more. From documents to videos, podcasts, WBT (web-based training) and virtual classrooms, everything is now possible without major effort. Thus, digital learning worlds have become a popular tool for companies to support and educate their employees in a contemporary way.
WHEN IS A DIGITAL LEARNING WORLD THE RIGHT DECISION?
Companies that have been cautious so far, now have to deal with the question, when digital learning worlds are worthwhile and whether this decision makes sense. With regard to that, we would particularly like to note that a comparison with alternatives always provides information. Not every content is suitable for every learning format. As in other areas of life, it's the mix that counts. While a few learning units should definitely take place via face-to-face training, for other units it is a good idea to map them digitally and use them for preparation and follow-up, for example. The important thing here is to keep the goal in mind that the user should definitely learn something in the end. And for this to happen, he must be stimulated and "kept in the loop". Learning may - indeed must - be a little fun. Otherwise nothing will stick in the end. No matter whether in a classical learning world or in a digital learning world.
HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT OFFER AROUND DIFGITAL LEARNING WORLDS?
To make the most of digital learning worlds, it is also always important to find the perfect offer. If the right course offer around digital learning worlds is to be found, it is of course desirable to locate this offer as soon as possible.
When companies are searching for the right offer, it is therefore always important to keep their own needs in mind. It should always be taken into consideration whether - with regard to various training topics - individual events or series are aimed for, how many participants are to be sent and what the goal exactly is. It certainly also makes sense to consider in advance which part of the training should take place in a classroom setting and which parts can be presented digitally - and thus in a scalable and more flexible way.
