With Idea Learning, creating custom learning experiences like eLearning, instructor-led workshops, games, and videos doesn’t mean pulling existing materials off the shelf and simply adding your logo or brand. That’s one way to provide learning, but not our way.
When we create custom learning experiences, we study your business, your industry, your employees, and your customers. With in-depth analysis, we are able to work across a variety of industries. We create learning that works well for you and only you.
Our approach begins with a thorough analysis to identify your desired business outcomes and the required changes in actions/behaviors you’d like to see. After conducting a thorough needs analysis, we recommend a learning strategy to achieve the defined results – whether its classroom, eLearning, just-in-time, or a blended approach, we’ll ensure it’s the right solution.
Business operations is about developing the technical capacity of your teams to drive measurable results. Whatever skills, behaviors, or concepts your workforce needs to rise to the next challenge, we’re here to help. Idea Learning creates conditions for learning to take place over time, allowing learners to internalize content and develop new ways to integrate what they’ve learned into their work.
At the core of any successful business is a strong leadership team. Idea Learning designs leadership programs tailored to your organizational culture, strategy, and unique learner needs.
A few programs we’ve built:
- A series of two-hour sessions for supervisors in a union environment
- A multi-year cohort-based program for high-potential employees
- A year-long required development program for managers
Onboarding shouldn’t be confused with employee orientation. Onboarding is the process of integrating new employees into the organization, preparing them to succeed, and becoming fully engaged. Our tailored programs empower employees to own their onboarding experience with a plan that provides resources and tools that support their transition.
No matter what industry you’re in, to succeed, you need engaged, creative employees in every department, in every role. Idea Learning creates experiential in-person and virtual workshops that fully engage employees, so they learn faster, more fully absorb the material, and enjoy the experience more.
A few workshops we’ve built:
- Nationwide rollout of a full day, in-person session on client’s proprietary internal communications model
- 3-hour in-person choice-based interactive session on customer service
- 2-hour virtual workshop on how to effectively facilitate virtual learning
- A series of half-day leadership development sessions facilitated virtually to nationwide cohorts
We design and develop eLearning that is tailored to your unique content, brand, and learner. We steer clear of cookie-cutter interfaces and clip art and instead craft something that feels human and wholly unexpected – effective learning often evokes strong emotional reactions. When learning is emotional, learners are more likely to recall information, make decisions more quickly and effectively, and take appropriate actions.
Animated video is one of our favorite tools because of its ability to engage learners, leverage the power of storytelling, and bring content to life. By incorporating custom visuals, audio, and movement the possibilities are infinite. At Idea Learning our animated videos help our clients deliver consistent messaging to a distributed workforce, enhance eLearning courses, and reinforce learning.
Play can help us solve problems and build creativity, yet it’s often dismissed as a waste of time. We believe that play can be an engaging way to create effective learning experiences. Do you want an interactive experience that is simple for employees to learn and simple to implement? We design games that allow learners to construct their knowledge rather than being spoon-fed information.
Cafeteria Learning is an approach to learning that allows instructional designers (chefs) to apply content (ingredients) to a variety of interchangeable activities (recipes), resulting in an informal classroom workshop in which each learner builds a customized learning experience (meal).
