"Lifeblood of every business"

Seventy percent of a company’s elearning programs are primarily focused on technical and compliance requirements.

It is the major artery that infuses expertise and knowledge into sales and profits, customer service, efficient systems and adherence to regulations. It is highly critical to employee performance and compliance to laws.

Technical and compliance elearning programs -- products, applications, processes, software, etc.-and compliance to government regulations -statutes, audits, sanctions, penalties, legal actions, etc. – are fundamental, indispensable and pivotal to the success or failure of any business.

"Tedious, boring and data dump"

“Boring”, “Difficult to retain”, “Hard to grasp”, “Long”, are common complaints you hear.

Technical and compliance information -statistics, legalese, procedures, policies –do not captivate learners.

It is accepted truth that well-intentioned technical and compliance programs are simply “massive data dumps”.

Learners end up frustrated and unable to grasp and retain critical content for job application.

How do you fix the problem?

"Re-energize and transform"

Re-energize and transform technical and compliance elearning programs to story-based and make them shorter, easier and faster for the learner.

Utilize the Story-based eLearning Design approach for your technical and compliance programs. Heighten learners’ interactivity levels This innovative learning design and delivery method has been proven a key factor to improved content retention.

Re-energize your elearning programs. Transform your programs. Start relating story events with the content.. Chunk and boil down your learning material. Create faster, easier and better learning for your learners. Cut training time significantly and improve learners’ performance.

What is the workshop?

"Technical and compliance elearning that is shorter, faster, easier and engaging"

The Story-based Technical and Compliance eLearning Design Workshop enables you how to convert existing or new technical and compliance eLearning content into stimulating learning experiences.

Workshop participants learn how to transform procedures, products, policies, processes, technical data, rules and regulations into easy and immersive elearning.

Skills in creating interactive and discovery learning methods where the content is embedded in real-life events are developed.

Participants practice the application of Story-based design methods using success stories, customer complaints, product recalls, penalties, legal infractions, lawsuits, product defects, lost sales, quick solutions, etc. to help learners turn technical and compliance information into personalized and meaningful learning experiences.
