Since the onset of the global pandemic, more corporate learning experiences than ever have gone hybrid to accommodate both in-person and remote learners. In fact, Cindy Hugget’s State of Virtual Training shows that a whopping 62% of learning and development (L&D) professionals offer hybrid learning experiences or plan to offer it in the near future.
Yet learners and L&D professionals alike are unhappy with the experiences offered in virtual training. In face, Ken Blanchard’s report on L&D in a Hybrid World (2022) shows that 53% of L&D professionals are dissatisfied with their virtual training offerings and feel they are less effective than in-person offerings.
Considering hybrid learning experiences are here to stay, it is important that third-party training providers invest the time into developing digital learning that is as effective for remote learners as it is for in-person learners. To make it even more complicated, while many in-house corporate teams can rely on LMS or shared drives to distribute digital content, third-party training providers have to find ways to deliver digital content without putting your intellectual capital at risk.
That’s why we created Mimeo Digital, a cloud-based courseware distribution platform that makes it easy to distribute locked virtual content.
Here is how Mimeo Digital elevates your hybrid learner experience:
Whether you are training Baby Boomers or GenZ or everything in between, the number one rule of virtual content is that it has to be easy to use.
That’s why Mimeo Digital is designed with the end-user in mind. Learners access your library of content from their mobile devices, tablets, laptops, or PCs. From their perspective, accessing your content is as easy as opening the device of their choice and logging in.
From your perspective, it is as simple as uploading and choosing who can access. As soon as your files hit our system, we make them mobile-responsive, so that you don’t need to invest in new content creation tools just to get your workbooks in front of remote learners.
WiFi Agnostic Experience
In this recent survey, over one-third of learners reported spotty access to wifi as a challenge to their virtual learning experience. When it comes building your hybrid learning experiences, you can’t control whether someone’s home broadband will be working on any given day, and you certainly don’t want them to waste wifi on loading PDFs when you need them participating in a video activity.
That’s why we made Mimeo Digital WiFi agnostic. While your learners do have to access the internet in order to download your content to the app, with your permission they can make that content available offline. That works the same way as your Netflix shows, Spotify playlists, and library ebooks: they can access your content within the Mimeo Digital app, but they can’t steal the source files. You don’t have to worry about them losing the internet connection or pirating your intellectual property.
Your expertise is in facilitating training experiences, not troubleshooting why someone can’t see the “redeem” button. That’s why we offer 24/7/365 chat support within the Mimeo Digital app. Our average response rate is under one minute so no matter whether your learner is in the classroom with you or calling in from their home, you don’t have to answer any tech support questions.
Integrated Hybrid Learning Experience
Your digital content doesn’t exist in a vacuum, so your digital content experience shouldn’t feel like a complete departure from the rest of the learning journey.
That begins with the look and feel of your digital content. You can brand your learner’s library with your logo and colors, their organization’s logo and colors, or custom logo and colors to reflect the specific course they are taking. That way, whether they are in the classroom or joining from their month-long sojourn at Yosemite, your learner knows they showed up to the right place to get the right content.
Beyond that, Mimeo Digital plugs into your other learning delivery tools to deliver a seamless hybrid learning experience. That could include providing printed training manuals to both classroom and at-home learners, with video and audio supplements in Mimeo Digital. Or, you can plug Mimeo Digital into your larger ecosystem so that it sits inside virtual training rooms.
Delivering state-of-the-art training that satisfies hybrid learners is a tough challenge, but it is one that training providers must meet if you want to stay relevant in the evolving corporate world. With Mimeo Digital in your toolkit, you can rest easy knowing that your digital content is secure and easy to access by any and all approved learners.
