The “real world” experience
What is not a sure bet is the fact that remembering the information automatically translates to being able to apply the information. Let’s face it, the training experience is often built upon simple examples which can be understood by a broad audience of students. And, because the examples are engineered for educational purposes, they frequently follow a happy path without encountering errors or exceptions to the intended workflow or process. In the real world, the application of what you have learned does not always go quite so smoothly. This is where a learning platform which supports a collaborative learning environment allows both students and instructors to leverage their knowledge and experience to help each other over the hurdle of real world application.
The “keep current” experience
Things change all the time and you must continuously learn new information; that’s a fact. Technology is constantly being upgraded or replaced with new technology. Practices and procedures are continuously being improved. And, ideas and strategies are always evolving to fit an ever-changing social, economic, and political environment. This is where a learning platform needs to be governed to ensure that all the information it provides stays current. For the content developers, it may require nearly as much effort to maintain this content as it did to initially create it. However, without this ongoing effort to keep content current, the student will quickly lose confidence in the learning platform if they discover information which is, at best, out-of-date or worse yet, incorrect.
Our Qlik Continuous Classroom addresses all these uses cases by providing continuous and up-to-date learning content, anytime, anywhere, always. You can try it for free right now at qcc.qlik.com.
