5 things of internet “New Normal”

Published

on

Here are 5 tips that will help you adapt to the internet “new normal” that is prevailing during this pandemic.

 

Online And Virtual Training Is The Go-To Option

With travel time and costs being slashed totally, many people are investing their newfound wealth into developing themselves. They are doing this via courses and thus, they are looking for short courses rather than longer ones, primarily for two reasons. The first being that nobody knows how long “working from home” will continue, and the second being that shorter courses allow learners to complete multiple ones in the same stipulated amount of time.

 

The Training Paradigm Will Change

 

Previously, the format was like 70% of the course was offline and the rest was virtual. Now the scenario has been reversed, and online learning is taking up to more than 70% of the course and the rest is offline. Thus, online courses need to be more detailed to make up for this shift in control in order to help users navigate easily through a course.

 

Doubts And Clarification Need To Be Addressed Online

eLearning will be the new norm for the learning experience, and doubts and clarification classes need to be held online. There should be enough manpower or LMS capability to handle all of them. Thus, an LMS should be ready to handle the huge workload and the traffic that might come its way.

 

A Huge Number Of New Recruits

After the pandemic ends and the recession period is over, there will be a huge list of new recruitments needed to fill the laid-off employees’ positions. Thus, they will all need to be trained. Doing this online is the best way instead of scheduling class after class offline; the instructor will also become tired. Also, scheduling classes offline will consume unnecessary resources, and this can be avoided if scheduling is done online. Thus, keeping it online and preparing new content for the freshers is a good way to be ahead of the curve and prepare yourself for the future.

 

Training Media Will Be New

AR/VR will become widespread entities in the near future. This can be used for skill-based training in order to simulate an identical environment for sales or other complex topics that require proper hands-on training. This is a concept for the future when a course can be ported for AR/VR mediums too. This type of content will enable trainers to choose an experience rather than other content styles. This type of content will help the learners be more active and pay attention to the course.
