Yesterday’s post covered the importance of automated data analytics for organizational e-learning initiatives and programs. In more detail, here is how you can, and should, utilize data analytics for organizational e-learning initiatives and programs.
You can use and rely on data analytics to do the following:
Improve and Expand E-Learning Offerings
Once you have data analytics that reveal what your learners want to learn and how they engage with your current e-learning offerings, as well as what they need to learn to be successful at your organization and within your industry, you’ll be able to strategically improve and expand your e-learning offerings.
You’ll be able to understand what e-learning courses, tools, and techniques resonate with your learners, so that you can continue to improve your existing e-learning offerings. For example, data analytics can tell you things like what new or improved design elements and features to include in your e-learning courses or what new e-learning content you should curate.
Data analytics can also tell you when to add e-learning course content or certain mobile features.
Enhance E-Learner Engagement
You should especially use data analytics to better personalize your e-learning content, courses, and programs, which will make them more engaging. With data analytics, you will be able to better understand what e-learning content, mediums, platforms, features, etc., your e-learners prefer, as well as how often, where, and when they want to engage with it.
Learners who consistently encounter e-learning courses and experiences that are relevant to their needs and interests—both in-the-moment and long-term—will find them more engaging. Essentially, when data analytics help you better personalize e-learning content and experiences, learners will become more engaged with them.
Align E-Learning Programs to Organizational Goals
You can also use data analytics to ensure that your e-learning courses, programs, and experiences are well aligned with your organization’s overarching goals.
For example, data analytics can tell you if your e-learning initiatives and programs are leading to improved employee productivity, increased revenues, brand recognition, higher customer satisfaction ratings, etc.
Without data analytics it will be much harder, if not impossible, to determine if your e-learning initiatives and programs are truly ensuring the overall success and longevity of your organization.
Essentially, when you use data analytics to align your e-learning initiatives and programs with your organization’s overarching goals, you’ll be able to improve and scale the performance of your entire organization. Data analytics is becoming essential to ensuring that your organization remains upskilled, productive, and competitive.
Bottom line, if want your organization to have the best e-learning initiatives and programs possible, make sure that it’s utilizing data analytics as outlined above.
