Performance Support Tools (PSTs): Innovative Formats That You Can Use
Continuing our thread on usage of Performance Support Tools (PSTs), we look at high impact, innovative formats of Performance Support Tools (PSTs) that will push the knowledge acquisition to its application on the job.
These include formats like Mobile Apps, Interactive pdfs, eBooks and Prezi. See how you can use them in your organisation through the following three articles:
- Article 1: This article outlines how you can use Mobile Apps for formal learning as well as an effective PST.
- Article 2: This article outlines how you can use Interactive PDFs and eBooks as PSTs to effectively supplement your formal training.
- Article 3: This article outlines how you can use the presentation tool Prezi to design an engaging and immersive PST.
In this article, I have outlined the usage of Mobile Apps for learning. Mobile Apps are one of the delivery formats that offer the additional flexibility of offline viewing of the eLearning course to the learners from their mobile devices. (They need to have an internet access to download the course and then they can view it with/without the internet connection. However, to track their progress through the LMS, they must be connected to the internet as only then can their progress information be passed on to the LMS).
In this article, I have outlined how you can use interactive PDFs and eBooks as Performance Support Tools.
In this article, I have shared a case study on how we have used Prezi (a presentation tool) to create an innovative learning aid. Shortly, this will be a part of our upcoming Performance Support Solutions.
In the next newsletter, we will go back to the hot topic of Return on Investment (ROI) on training. We will share articles that will provide insight on the definition and a methodology to determine Return on Investment (ROI). We will also look at the measures you can adopt to maximise it.
