Staff training requires the grasp of a variety of factors in an effort to account for changes and shifts in various industries. Living in a technological age, it is essential for us to utilise the resources at hand for the most efficient and forward-thinking approach to learning. When choosing an app for staff training, say hello to mobile-based microlearning.
Educational apps have taken the world by storm, providing endless benefits to employees and companies alike. This is why it is crucial for companies to choose the ‘cream of the crop’ learning management system (LMS) in the creation of their employee training strategy.
When selecting an app for staff training, it is essential to consider the objectives and corporate goals of the organization. The perfect way to do so is by employing an app that provides a plethora of unique features for users to benefit from. EdApp is a mobile-based LMS of which is focussed on the practice of microlearning.
Mobile learning (mLearning) has flourished over the past decade and there is no question why. mLearning has simply made training, learning and development more seamless and successfully translated to learners. A mobile LMS is crucial for forward-thinking organizations who understand the importance of differentiating themselves from competitors for ultimate corporate success. EdApp is designed specifically for mLearning because we understand the value in meeting the needs and preferences of learners to thrive in their roles. Our mLearning is compatible with both Android and Apple devices, also maintaining perfect formatting on laptops, tablets and desktops.
Microlearning is the presentation of information in the form of microlessons on learners’ own device. EdApp specialises in education through microlearning in order to deliver learning strategies which provide the best results possible. Microlearning encompasses the division of course content into digestible, bite-sized chunks for the maximum information absorption and retention. Our microlearning LMS boasts various unique features to EdApp, some of which are discussed below.
With EdApp’s authoring tool, your learning is always up-to-date. Our rapid authoring tool enables you to provide new, updated or edited information to your employees instantaneously. The rapid part comes from the ability for users to develop an entire course in a matter of hours or days, instead of weeks and months as per traditional learning courses. Our authoring tool also allows access to a vast library filled with a plethora of ready-made, effective, aesthetic and responsive templates for users to import content into. Easy.
Gamification allows the transformation of boring courses into an interactive game. By this, mental barriers are broken down, allowing learners to absorb new and more information. Further, gamification increases the likelihood of knowledge being embedded into employees’ long-term memory. Gamification encompasses the incorporation of gaming elements, such as point scores, star bars, real prizing and badges.
Spaced repetition is a strategy employed with the aim of boosting learners’ retention of information in the form of spaced intervals. EdApp takes spaced repetition to the next level with our unique feature, Brain Boost. It is a distributed practice, whereby lessons are retaken at increasing intervals for the information to embed in employees’ long-term memories. Spaced repetition is directly linked and influenced by the forgetting curve which is a visual representation of memory retention. EdApp manages Brain Boost for you as we know the perfect time to reiterate your content. It is based on the progress and success in lessons, as well as the weighted importance of your content dictating what comes next. This provides a tailored approach to learning for employees, optimizing their personal and professional success.
Cloud-based authoring is the perfect way to construct successful and efficient mLearning courses. Especially when working in a team, it is essential to be able to share resources, software and other information with colleagues. This allows for collaboration, time saved and overall improved teamwork across the entire organization.
