Course overview

If there’s one thing that’s changing all the time, it’s technology. Business learning’s had to adapt fast, thanks to huge shifts in how we work, collaborate, and learn. Synchronous learning (engaging in real time), and asynchronous learning (accessing learning in your own time) are now commonplace terms in any L&D department. The question is: Do you know which one to use, and when?  

Both approaches can bring excellent results, if used in the right context. It’s about picking the right tool for the job and basing your choices on your organization’s specific learning needs and goals. Understanding the options available to you is essential in designing the most effective learning program for your context. This course will get your teams started.
