Organizations today are battling several issues such as quiet quitting, hybrid workforce, and global competition. This has pushed L&D to the forefront unlike the previous years – they must support corporate initiatives, facilitate internal mobility, upskill the workforce, demonstrate the value of learning, and maintain a learning ecosystem.

In this context, rolling out learner-centric, memorable online learning interventions is imperative — making rapid eLearning the right choice for high-performing L&D teams. This podcast aims to sensitize the Training fraternity on what rapid eLearning is and isn’t, how it caters to the complete spectrum of training needs, and more. The art — instructional design, science and tools — of rapid eLearning will also be discussed.

 Topics Include:

  • What is rapid eLearning?
  • What are some common myths about rapid eLearning?
  • What place does instructional design have in rapid eLearning?
  • Is rapid eLearning only eLearning?
  • What are rapid eLearning accelerators?
  • Insights from Shalini’s journey
  • And more!
