When Morton McCann decided to deliver their ISO training courses entirely online they realised that a completely different approach to the training was needed. They teamed up with learning & development specialists The Learning Map to create a set of self-paced courses that users could access from their home, in the office, or on a mobile device. Armed with over thirty years of experience in learning design and delivery they set about selecting the right learning management platform for their customers’ requirements.
How The Learning Map use EdApp to drive their Learner Journey
The Learning Map brings best practice from customer experience design to learning.
The workplace is crowded and busy. We need to attract and retain learners as we do our customers – giving them engaging, consistently excellent experiences that provide real value to them.
Our commitment is to deliver great learner-centric experiences that immediately add value in the workplace with real-world fast sustainable results. This blends upskilling with guided resourcing to accelerate impact and motivate learners.
EdApp is now a key part of our Learner Journey with self-paced learning supporting guided sessions for a fully blended solution – understanding, learning and then doing. This provides a full OUTSIDE: IN approach where the learner is centre stage, and they experience learning as memorable moments of transformation.
Why EdApp works
The Learning Map and Morton McCann evaluated over 40 different learning platforms before selecting EdApp as their learning management system of choice. EdApp’s microlearning capabilities, customization, and its mobile-first approach set it apart from the competition.
Microlearning is one of the most effective forms of learning and has been proven to keep the learner engaged since lessons can be completed in as little as 5 minutes whilst resulting in better learning outcomes. Learners love it and so does the Learning and Development (L&D) community, as 8 out of 10 L&D professionals reportedly opt for microlearning because their learners prefer it (Boyette).
The pandemic has accelerated demand for online learning because you just can’t get people together in a classroom. But customers quickly realised that it could be more effective than taking people out of their jobs for days at a time. Online learning will be a significant element of businesses’ learning-mix in future.
