NEW YORK, NY – 18 May, 2016 – Over two-thirds of employees say they are more engaged if they can grow and develop with the organization. Highly engaged employees are 2.5 times more likely to work extra hours if something needs to be done. As Internet and globalization streamline the hiring process and drive the recruitment competition globally, attracting and retaining top talent has become one of the biggest challenges with organizations.
Over 40% of global Fortune 500 companies have already used some form of educational technology for workforce training. The exponential growth of social media has changed the business landscape, and social sharing proves that people are used to attention spans of 90 seconds and 140-word messages. The underlying success factor of Nanolearning is that content is offered in short bursts of 1-4 minutes, mirroring the human attention span to optimal learning efficiency. Bite-size content is easier to digest, understand and recall.
“Nanolearning is all about achieving maximum learning benefits through minimal input. Specific bursts of content are delivered in formats of videos, blogs, games, quizzes, podcasts and slideshows, making absorbing information interactive, fun and easy to retain,” commented Romina Mahtani, CEO of Eton Institute.
Eton Institute also adds a modern twist to the traditional instructor-led training with Virtual Learning, allowing teams from around the world to attend the same interactive course. “Our Virtual Learning courses connect teams globally, helping them see progress in all branches at once, saving time and resources,” said Mrs Mahtani. “All language courses – whether through virtual or self-study learning – are uniquely mapped to internationally recognized CEFR levels and continuous assessment after each training will ensure skill retention,” she added.
The use of Virtual Training showed a 30% increase from 2010 to 2013, increasing from 6.7% to 9% of the total training mix (ATD 2012 and 2014).
Eton Institute will present its latest innovative mobile learning programs at the upcoming ATD 2016 in Denver, Colorado, Booth #947.
