EI (https://www.eidesign.net/) has been in the business of helping people learn critical skills to help them succeed in their careers for over a decade. What has always been different about EI is the focus on eLearning and the various ways it can be adapted to meet the needs of any learner. In the past, we considered ourselves and were known as, a learning solutions provider. Today, EI is proud to announce that we have evolved to become a learning and performance solutions provider.
The difference between these distinctions is that previously we focused intently on creating an effective learning experience that could be digested easily, regardless of one’s learning style. Now, we are including a strong focus on both the learning and the importance of what results from this learning and that is performance. The idea behind it is that the more effectively you learn, the more your performance will improve and the more your business will benefit and this is, after all, the whole point of learning. To learn without the need to apply it, is to learn in vain. Mere knowledge acquisition is not enough and its application is the key.
“Businesses are always looking at how they can bridge the gap between knowledge acquisition and knowledge application,” says Asha Pandey, CEO of EI. “Our approach is to embed learning and performance solutions into the workflow and provide comprehensive learning and performance ecosystems that include formal training (through eLeraning, mLearning, ILT/VILT and blended learning), informal learning (including performance support tools and collaborative learning through social learning) and value-added services for evaluation and assessing the impact of training on the business.”
EI has known for a long time that learning is not a one-size fits all environment. It’s because of this that their system is designed to conform to the individual learner and their unique learning path. Through the initial Training Needs Analysis (TNA) performed for each learner, the new approach allows for immediate engagement with the learner, which helps in the assessment of learning needs and mapping that to formal and informal learning techniques. This approach also promotes various kinds of training, like online versus instructor led, as well as provides Performance Support Tools (PSTs) (eidesign.net/performance-support-solutions/) and a social learning framework for the student.
“One thing that the modern student needs is access and that access must be provided twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. More significantly, the learning should be within the learner’s work-flow.,” explains Asha. “As such, our learners expect to be able to learn whenever they are ready and when it is convenient for them.”
EI’s past successes as a learning provider has primed us for this position, a position that always us to view the bigger picture. Our learning solutions have always been very effective but now we want to make sure that the application aspect of it is just as solid. By doing this we are ensuring that the knowledge-application gap is bridged and organisations get rewarded by ending up with better trained employees who are capable of applying their new skills is innovative ways.
