Six Strategies for Digital Learning Success. White Paper
Mehta, Samir; Downs, Holly
Center for Creative Leadership
Technology has revolutionized corporate learning and leadership development. The number of organizations that use learning management systems is higher than ever before, and thanks to massive open online courses (MOOCs), small private online courses (SPOCS), microlearning, nanolearning, and other new media learning platforms, digital learning and training is at an all-time high. Many learning and leadership development professionals, however, still consider expensive, face-to-face, instructor-led training preferable to digital learning. This paper will explore six strategies from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) that talent leaders can leverage to make digital learning initiatives more effective within their organization. When properly designed, delivered, and evaluated, digital learning initiatives can change a company's corporate culture, improve employee engagement, and increase retention. On the flip side, if done poorly, digital learning initiatives can end up as meaningless corporate activities. The six strategies explored in this paper are addressed under the following headings: (1) Less is More; (2) Support from the Top; (3) Learner-Centered Design; (4) Leaders as Teachers; (5) Learning Partnerships; and (6) What Gets Measured Gets Done.
