Personalized Microlearning

The Intela Team

Intela announces the addition of an important and unique new feature to the Intela platform: personalized microlearning. Personalized microlearning is a blend of three emerging learning trends: (1) the personalization of learning (2) the movement towards creating small, easily digestible microlessons and (3) the increasing use of mobile devices.

One of the problems with personalized learning has always been that even if you could identify specific learning gaps, traditional lessons are too large to target those gaps. But Intela solves this problem with personalized microlearning. The system will now automatically assign targeted microlessons to learners to address learning gaps detected by assessments.

Now, in addition to author-assigned microlearning subscriptions, each learner will have a unique set of system-assigned microlessons directly targeted to his/her learning needs. And, by using mobile devices these learning gaps can be remediated anytime/anywhere.

Curated Microlesson Catalogs

The Intela Team

Intela announces the addition of curated catalogs to its growing microlearning-based feature set. Intela Authors can now create microlessons and post them to catalogs for retrieval by learners on demand. The system supports an unlimited number of microlesson catalogs, which can be assigned to individuals and/or groups based upon job, region, department, seniority, or any other learner attribute.

Intela now has the most complete microlearning platform on the market, incorporating three powerful microlearning strategies:

  • Learning subscriptions (magazine-style delivery of microlearning)
  • Personalized microlessons (automatically assigned based on detection of learning gaps)
  • Curated catalogs (on demand microlessons)

Intela at ATD TechKnowledge 2018 in San Jose, CA

The Intela Team

Intela participated in ATD TechKnowledge 2018 in San Jose, where we had the opportunity to show off our modern Unified Continuous Learning platform. Our biggest take-away? Not surprisingly, there were many microlearning platforms on display but our unified (four categories of microlearning activities) approach was unique.

Dr. Steven Just, CLO of Intela Learning, spoke at the PADLA (Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware) Distance Learning Association Annual Conference.

The Intela Team

Dr. Just presented a workshop on "The Science and Practice of Continuous Learning" at the PADLA Annual Conference in Philadelphia. The workshop covered the importance of viewing learning as a long-term process, not just an event, and highlighted research evidence showing the power of adaptive questioning, microlearning, gamification and alternate forms of assessment.

At the end of the workshop there was a discussion about how "modern learning" and "classical courses" can be complementary. Dr. Just offered this view showing that structured courses are most appropriate for new/novice employees and modern learning is most appropriate as employees gain a structured understanding of the subject matter:

Intela Improves Learning Sprint Activity

The Intela Team

We always listen to our users and try to incorporate their best ideas into our product. So, after getting feedback from several clients about improvements they would like to see in our Review and Reinforcement exercises (Learning Sprints) we recently updated the Sprint Activity in three important ways:

  1. We modified the algorithm to place more emphasis on displaying the questions the learner answered incorrectly.
  2. Some learners felt that answering a question correctly three times in a row in order to “retire” it was too time-consuming and frankly,
    annoying, so we changed the default from three to two.
  3. To give the learner a more definitive sense of progress in the Sprint, we added a graphical pop-up that congratulates the learner
    each time he/she successfully retires a question:

It's All About Microlearning at the LTEN Medical Device and Diagnostics Trainers Summit

The Intela Team

Intela recently exhibited at the Life Science Trainers and Educators Network (LTEN) Medical Device and Diagnostics conference. Though we always exhibit at the larger LTEN annual meeting this was the first time we have exhibited at this smaller, more targeted conference. Our reaction? It was great. The venue, the speakers, and our interactions with the participants were all first class.

What was our major take-away from the presentations? What’s most on the mind of trainers? What is the hottest topic in learning today? Three answers: microlearning, microlearning, microlearning! We couldn’t be happier to hear that because the Intela platform has robust support for microlearning through our Learning Subscriptions activity type. We support microlearning in just about any form: videos, podcasts, graphics, animations, PDFs, Docs, etc. And unlike other microlearning platforms, we allow you to tie learning nuggets together into Subscriptions that are delivered to your learners on a regular basis, for improved learning reinforcement and retention.

ABOUT Intela™

Intela™ is the first truly unified Continuous Learning System. It is not an LMS. It is not a courseware development system. Intela™ allows companies to convert learning events into learning processes through four proven learning strategies: Review and Reinforcement, Gamification, Subscription Learning (using microlearning), and Active Assessments. Intela™ is used before, during and after a learning event to ensure that what is learned is remembered and transferred back to the job.
