Adaptive learning elevates learning and development programs by providing a personalized, relevant learning experience that increases engagement and understanding, faster.
Here are just a few reasons why:
The learning journey is personal and meaningful
With adaptive learning, learners feel a personal connection to their process and have space and time for reflection, leading to learning that sticks.
When using adaptive learning design, we meet learners where they are, and help them with sensemaking on the topic and skills covered. We also help move through stages of competence leading to personalized insights, feedback, and accomplishment of learning objectives.
And, through learning by doing, learners are able to practice in a safe space that represents real-world challenges and scenarios, leading to powerful “aha” moments.
Adaptive learning is efficient and effective
Hermann Ebbinghaus, a 19th-century German psychologist, coined the term the forgetting curve. In short, Ebbinghaus noted that humans forget newly memorized information at an alarming rate. Through his research, he illustrated how quickly memory loss occurs:
- Within twenty minutes, 42 percent of what was just learned is already forgotten.
- In twenty-four hours, 67 percent is gone.
- One month later, 79 percent is lost.
Cognitive science tells us that active practice and emotional connection help us remember things longer and apply what we’ve learned more easily. With adaptive learning, the learning path hones in on where the learner needs to focus and leapfrogs.
The result? Learning that sticks.
In fact, with Regis simulations, 94% of participants reported applying what they learned in a program to their job function – active use that drives real impact.
Train your workforce faster (with a stronger ROI )
Business success depends on people learning and doing more, faster.
Through adaptive learning, learners can “skip” the learning they don’t need and are presented with the learning content they do. As a result, training time is significantly reduced, leading to cost and time savings for the organization, and a higher return on investment for training budgets.
For example, one of our customers recently reported a 15x ROI against program creation and deployment costs.
Gain rich insights through data and analytics
Through assessments and reporting, learners and learning leaders alike gain data-driven insights and a path for improvement.
- Learners can see how their choices impact various outcomes, creating new awareness and impetus for behavior change. It’s like a personal map for self-improvement!
- Learning leaders can measure what matters, from assessment results to the amount of time spent completing tasks. And these data analytics are collected in real-time, saving operational lift to report on L&D investment and outcomes.
