Train anywhereTrain on the move, Train at home, Train within the Organisation

When users are able to use their own devices they also have the ability to choose where they train. They can take training at home, wherever they are around the organisation or on the move.

In Situ training

One of the advantages of being able to train anywhere is to be able to have training in situ, for instance training taking place on the ward.

This means that users dont have to go to dedicated training suites, or take time away from the ward to do a small piece of training. It also means users can top up their training using downtime without having to find specialist equipment.

Pre induction training

One of the advantages of training anywhere is that you dont have to wait for a user to come on site on their first day to start doing their induction.

Once a job offer has been accepted you can give them access to the LMS and have them start their training before they start. This means that when they do start induction is shorter saving you time.

Peer led learning

One of the other advantages of being able to train anywhere is to collaborate with colleagues. A lot of the learning you do in a role comes from those around you, a mobile friendly LMS helps you to bring the LMS into these discussions.

It can let you work on group activities together, or to record new learning or mentoring that is helping you to progress.

Knowledge checks & Just in Time

Another useful benefit of being able to train anywhere is always being able to do small knowledge checks or look something up (just in time learning).

During downtime someone can practice with quizzing and if a new situation comes up they can use search functions to pull up the information they need.

Just in Case

What is it?Have you ever asked:Why do I need to know this?Then be told:because someday you will need it?

Just in Time

What is it?Learner Centric

Provides when needed

Customized content

Can be web based or Can have coaches on stand-by
