Rapid learning (TvLearn) to strengthen face-to-face training
24 October, 2012
What do the latest e-learning figures show? In France, companies with more than 5,000 employees appear to be major users of e-learning, representing 60% of market share. E-learning is becoming as widespread in companies as in training centres, driven by the availability of IT tools that are accessible to all. The rapid learning feature called “TvLearn”, is one of these tools which is promoting the inclusion of e-learning into training departments.
TvLearn: your trainers on the Internet
TvLearn is a technology developed by the e-learning software publisher e-doceo for quickly producing training content. This learning methodology is part of the trend described as “rapid learning”, which simplifies e-learning design through the production of short transmissive content (see our article “Rapid learning: advantages and drawbacks”).
The TvLearn feature, available in the rapid learning software elearning animgallery, enables trainers or teachers to simultaneously record their webcam and their microphone, capture their PowerPoint or make screen films. In just a few clicks, the e-learning module is in the box and ready to be broadcast to learners.
Rapid learning and vocational training, the winning combination
For companies, the use of rapid learning presents significant advantages, first of all for trainers:
- The internalised production and broadcast of content rendered in a condensed way within a rapid learning module of a few minutes only. The impact of e-learning is thus maximised
- No waste of time for them because a rapid learning module using TvLearn technology takes only a few minutes to shoot
But also for learners:
- A round-up of important information that needs to be remembered
-Viewing at will, in any place and at any time
-A standardisation of the skills acquired by all learners
Companies which choose to combine e-learning with their so-called conventional face-to-face training, significantly optimise the strength of their training. The case of the Moser School shown in the documentary shot by Radio Télévision Suisse is a good example of the successful inclusion of e-learning, in this case in a training centre. The increasing number of organisations that are engaging in the production and broadcast of rapid learning classes proves the strength and relevance of blended learning (the kind of learning that combines face-to-face training and e-learning, also called mixed training).
