Can you imagine your life without your coffee machine? Or your Netflix account? Or (God forbid) your phone?
What would you do if you suddenly had to go out to bars to meet potential matches rather than just swiping right? (All us introverts thank you, Tinder).
Technology is at the heart of everything we do and it’s strange to think that it wasn’t always there.
Remember how we all used to have to take a trip down to Blockbuster Video to choose movies for the weekend? Yeah, I don’t want to go back to that either.
Just like in Netflix, AI in the elearning sphere is going to stop you having to take that metaphorical trip to Blockbuster and will do all the legwork for you, leaving you time to concentrate on the fun stuff.
AI technology is already helping to improve many aspects of Learning and Development, but many of us are still unsure just why it is so special.
To put this into perspective, let’s take a look into the future and see how your work life of tomorrow compares to your work life now.
Present-time you – your work life WITHOUT AI:
You get into work, tired from working late the night before, and shudder as you open your laptop to see the tasks you have on for the day. Among many things, your to-do list likely includes:
Manual course creation
Plan and develop staff development programs. Work out how to incorporate classroom training, demonstrations, on-the-job training, meetings, conferences, workshops, and elearning programs into courses.
Onboard two new hires
Conduct orientation sessions and arrange on-the-job training with staff members. Try to find relevant training manuals, multimedia visual aids, and other educational materials.
Manually analyse learning success
Evaluate the effectiveness of learning programs by focusing on completion rates and smiley face charts. Provide recommendations for improvement where possible.
OK, OK – I’m sure you don’t dread work every day, but does this sound a little familiar?
Future you – Introducing your work life WITH AI:
You get into work early, fresh and ready to take on the day. You’ve already organized your plan for the day, so you grab a coffee and get straight to it.
Let your learners explore your Learning Platform
Rather than manually creating courses and pulling resources from various locations, you give your learners access to your AI-powered Learning Platform and simply let them explore.
AI pulls learning materials from tons of course catalogues based on your learner’s function, so they can decide which courses to take and in which format, depending on their learning style.
You see that some of your learners have a few questions about the courses that they’ve just taken – no need to step in as AI can also see them and responds in real-time.
AI will then optimize learning paths and suggest other courses to your learners based on previous activity, so no need for you to worry about that either.
Review results report
Instead of trying to manually measure the success of your learning programs, you go to your dashboard and view the massive amounts of data that AI has collected into a neat report.
You’ve learned that AI can analyze and interpret massive amounts of data while continuously learning from its insights. This gives you a better understanding of how your learners are performing and how you can create even more effective, personalized learning plans in the future.
Create meaningful connections
With all of your spare time, you grab a coffee with your CEO and see how you can align your learning strategy to overall business goals for the quarter.
You then have lunch with your two new hires to see how they’re enjoying their AI-powered employee onboarding program and if they need anything else.
An ideal day, right?
Let’s be serious for a second
AI won’t eliminate your job, but it will change your job – and help you improve your performance by changing how learners apply your programs in the flow of work. You must be prepared for that change – it’s a good thing!
You need to focus on how to make AI your best friend and surround yourself with tools that help you to create and deliver learning in the most efficient way possible.
Artificial Intelligence has the power to transform your work day – automate menial, time-consuming tasks to spend the time focusing on your learners, while having the intel you need to measure and deliver true business impact. What’s not to love?
