Your training strategy needs to consider a few additional elements to plan, resource and budget to maintain success after the implementation and delivery.
Did you know? Video with multi- channel delivery increases recall almost 10% immediately and some studies show near 85% improvement!
Some ideas may enhance your success, which can include newer technologies and channels, including:
Create a YouTube library for Training podcasts, each a shorter audio file of the training material. Convert each training module or summaries into a weekly podcast. Ideal for employees traveling regularly between locations or for business purposes.
Create a webcasting studio in -house and film summary versions of your most popular training sessions in classroom. Create a webinar and host Webex or Skype sessions with pizza monthly to refresh key skills.
Create an on demand library of videos for future review.
