When you're a full-service learning design & production agency, you get all kinds of requests:
"Do you do games?"
"Can you include some CGI?" (We are not a hollywood studio.)
"Can you fix our LMS?" (A personal favorite of mine.)
But one that's becoming increasingly popular is, "Can you do individualized learning paths?"
Individualized learning has always been the dream. The only things that have ever gotten in the way of achieving this have been budget, time and resources (so, basically everything). But with the growing maturity of technology fused into everything we do, this dream is alive and kicking. Yes, we "do" individualized learning paths. We call it Dynamic Learning and it is revolutionizing the way our customers are thinking about learning, in the most unexpected ways.
What we're quickly learning is that while Dynamic Learning Paths possesses tremendous value for the end-user (highly targeted, personalized learning), it has even more value for learning design teams (and the organization as a whole) in terms of in-depth evaluation of prior learning events and more importantly, forecasting where priorites should lie in terms of future action.
Dynamic Learning and individual learning don't just make learners smarter, they make organizations smarter too. They help us build a strong foundation for our learning cultures, and help us answer a key question for all learning units: Where do we go next?
Have you used your dynamic learning paths (or intelligent content retrieval) within your organization? If so, what has your experience been thus far? If you haven't, what's holding you back?
