For some time now, learning and development has been experiencing a deluge of new technology and tools to enable training teams to make the leap into online learning and digital content creation.
Most of the technology available (LMS’s, authoring tools, etc.) focuses on the creation and deployment of learning. L&D have embraced these tools enthusiastically. However, less focus has been placed on the elements of training development which really empower training teams to increase their productivity, so they can spend more time creating new learning experiences and less time on inefficient front-end processes.
Instead, many training teams continue to use tools that are not purpose-built for L&D to manage essential processes such as training intake, capacity planning, project planning, and collaborative content design and course building. That’s why challenges such as version control, team collaboration, and the inability to scale training across the organization persist.
