Types of Remote Training

  1. Gamified eLearning 

This type of online learning incorporates gamification and reward elements that increase learner engagement and motivation, while still holding the familiarity of traditional eLearning. Take a look at the training course created for Wyndham Hotel Group for a closer look at gamified eLearning.

  1. Serious Games 

This training option delivers learning in an entertaining way as it transforms content into a fun game. Serious Games increase the learners’ drive to do well by using competition and the desire for personal efficacy as driving factors. See how The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association used game-based learning to train their workforce!

  1. Simulations 

Simulated learning experiences are a great way to replicate job situations and environments, without the risk of injuries or wasted products and equipment. This provides real experience before going out on the job, and can be delivered via desktops or virtual reality platforms. Dive into these examples from P&G and a leading pizza chain to see the different options.

  1. Training Videos

This type of training allows users to digest smaller amounts of information in a way that is convenient and preferred in comparison to traditional methods. Videos allow users to learn at their own pace and revisit concepts until retained and mastered. Find inspiration in this example from Checkers and Rally’s customer service training course. 

  1. Mobile Apps 

Mobile learning and app developments provide your workforce with important information at the time of need, regardless of location. This training delivery type is great for on-the-go learning and as-needed training support. Check out how Bridgestone used mobile applications to deliver learning to their workforce.
