Recent studies show that a few organizations are leveraging video-based learning to develop engaging videos for their employees instead of traditional eLearning courses.

Video-based learning has intense competencies in presenting content in perfect, detailed and visually appealing format. Learners will face a hard time in viewing the video if the course is not effective and engaging.

E-Learning: An Microsoft führt kein Weg vorbei

Als Holger Loop vom Center of Excellence in Learning der Lufthansa Group das Projekt auf der Zukunft Personal in Köln präsentierte, ist mir der Punkt gar nicht so ins Auge gesprungen. Aber es stimmt: Im Konzept von „OneLearning“ steckt viel Microsoft, von LinkedIn Learning über Sharepoint bis Azure. Gudrun Porath schlägt dann noch den Bogen zur Top Tools for Learning-Liste von Jane Hart, in der die Microsoft-Produkte dieses Jahr viele Plätze gut machen konnten. Ihre Schlussfolgerung: „Microsoft profitiert gewaltig davon, dass Arbeiten und Lernen im Unternehmen immer mehr zusammenwachsen.“

The Capability Academy: Where Corporate Training Is Going

Der Artikel beginnt mit einem Rückblick auf die letzten Etappen in Corporate Learning: Corporate Universities, E-Learning, Blended Learning, Microlearning, Learning Experience Platforms, Learning in the Flow of Work – alles verbunden mit der Hoffnung, jetzt die Lernform gefunden zu haben, die „passt“. Aber natürlich ändern sich auch die Rahmenbedingungen und Anforderungen. Und Kompetenzentwicklung und Lernen sind noch keine Selbstläufer.

Deshalb setzt Josh Bersin jetzt auf die „Capability Academy“ als strategische Klammer fürs Corporate Learning. Er schreibt:

An Academy Is A Place, Not A Library Of Content
As I mentioned earlier, an Academy is not “a bunch of courses, it’s a place to go.” A place to learn. A place to share. A place for experts to contribute. And a place to advance the state of knowledge. (And it may be a virtual and physical space.)“

Capability Academies sind strategie- und business-orientiert. Sie zielen auf Kompetenzen. Digitalisierung und Automatisierung treiben sie voran. Es erinnert ein bisschen an einen Relaunch der Corporate Universities der 2000er Jahre.

How the Workforce learns in 2019

Degreed und Harvard Business Publishing haben 772 Rückmeldungen zum Stand von Corporate Learning eingeholt. Im Zentrum der Erhebung standen zwei Fragen: wie MitabeiterInnen heute lernen und welche Rolle Learning & Development (L&D) dabei spielt. Dabei wird immer wieder betont, dass es heute um Kompetenzen (Skills) und nicht um Lernaktivitäten an sich geht.

Kurz zur Dramaturgie der Studie: Die erste Erkenntnis lautet, dass MitarbeiterInnen heute Antworten überall, aber nicht bei L&D suchen. Das, so die Autoren, hat drei Konsequenzen für L&D:
1) „Lean into how learning actually happens“
2) „Commit to the new fundamentals of L&D“:
„From managing learning to empowering development“, „From creating content to creating conditions“, „From all-in-one systems to integrated ecosystems“
3) „Make the shift from learning to skilling“

Gute Punkte!
