How LXP is Revolutionizing Employee Training

written by Sammir Inamdar February 8, 2024

Since their introduction about a decade ago, Learning Experience Platforms (LXP) have been game-changers in employee training. Going beyond conventional methods, an LXP offers a personalized learner experience by curating content from internal as well as external sources, and user-generated content.

With a learner-centric approach, an LXP impacts employee training, creating a dynamic ecosystem, taking learner motivation to the next level, and encouraging the practical application of skills in real-world scenarios. The inclusion of interactive social features further amplifies its appeal.

This blog will give you an overview of the LXP impact on employee training and how an LXP has personalized skill development.

LXP’s Role in Shaping Modern Employee Training Experiences

According to an Accenture report, businesses adopting AI are poised to witness a 40% increase in profitability by 2035, highlighting the importance of platforms like AI-powered LXP in today’s digital and mobile work landscape.

In essence, an LXP is a strategic tool that forward-thinking businesses need to harness for impactful employee learning. An LXP effectively helps meet the growing need for personalized skill development and can be the learning platform of choice, especially where traditional learning tools fall short in delivering customized employee training experiences.

Given that one-size-fits-all solutions no more work, an LXP intelligently identifies workforce skill gaps and assesses the learning needs of individual employees. This forms the basis for constructing a competency matrix that seamlessly aligns with an organization’s broader objectives.

By evaluating current employee competency levels, an LXP recommends the necessary upskilling modules in tandem with business goals. The platform then devises customized learning strategies, providing curated content that is tailored to specific skill sets and learner needs. This streamlines the process of addressing skill gaps and equipping the workforce for future challenges.

Personalization in Skill Development through AI-driven LXP

Every learner brings distinct goals, learning styles and backgrounds to the table. To ensure guaranteed learning outcomes, personalizing the content and style to each individual is essential.

AI-driven LXP delves deep into user data, considering preferences, past performance and learning objectives to develop personalized learning paths. This translates to tailored recommendations for courses, modules and resources, in line with each learner’s specific needs and goals. The result? Enhanced engagement and relevance lead to more effective learning outcomes.

Besides, considering learners may find it overwhelming to navigate the sea of online information for useful learning resources, AI-powered LXP offers the perfect solution with intelligent content recommendations. By scrutinizing user behavior, preferences and performance data, an LXP sifts through a vast content library to suggest the most relevant and high-quality learning resources. This not only saves learners’ time but also guarantees that they get access to the most accurate and up-to-date information, improving the overall learning experience.

Microlearning and On-Demand Training with LXP

For more engaging and targeted employee training, ensuring the right resources and packaging of learning is crucial. Embracing microlearning, which involves chunking and repurposing content into easily digestible, bite-sized nuggets, proves to be the ideal approach.

An LXP offers microlearning with ample flexibility by accommodating various content types, ranging from traditional PDF documents to multimedia eLearning. With microlearning, LXP also enables incorporating learning in the flow where in the event an employee finds themselves with some time on hand during work hours, they can use that time to access the LXP.

There, they can engage in brief tutorials, read blog posts on desired topics or even take interactive quizzes that are focused on the essential skill sets pertinent to their job profile. Since these are small (often under 10 minute) modules, employees can finish the session and then transition back to work. This ensures that they can enhance their skill set and efficiency without compromising productivity.

Enhancing Engagement and Motivation in Learning with LXP

Inspiring employees to embrace learning often poses a significant challenge for L&D teams. The prospect of adjusting schedules and dedicating time to learning can be overwhelming, particularly in the absence of a clear strategy or proper motivation.

In general, the average worker allocates a mere 24 minutes per week to formal learning, which could actually fall significantly short in a rapidly evolving workplace.

In fact, in the past, training was viewed as a passive activity, where learners would just listen to seminars or watch videos. LXP has changed this approach to a great extent, working wonders to increase learner motivation in the process.

LXP training prioritizes user experience, empowering employees to take control of their own learning journey. It offers an intuitive and easy learning experience that is accessible from various devices. Additionally, LXP encourages direct participation, such as sharing content and engaging in discussions with colleagues. In other words, by putting learner experience at the core of all training activities, LXP ensures motivation levels remain high.

In fact, according to a Udemy survey, 46% of respondents identified personalized learning paths as a key motivator. By granting learners the choice of how they wish to learn and tailoring the process to align with their personal goals, LXP enhances employee engagement, leading to quicker skill development.

Furthermore, this approach also ensures sustained employee engagement during training, as the platform consistently suggests only relevant content and courses. It keeps employees actively involved while enabling them to refine their skills, ultimately enhancing their productivity.

Another distinctive feature of an LXP that enhances learner motivation is adaptive learning. This methodology leverages AI to create specific learning journeys for individuals. As employees advance in their training, the LXP collects data about them, considering factors like job role, current skills, content preferences. Most importantly, thanks to adaptive features, the LXP dynamically adjusts learning resources based on each learner’s progress, performance and learning pace.

Adapting to Industry Changes: The LXP Advantage

Given the dynamic and uncertain nature of the economic landscape, it is imperative for any organization (and consequently its workforce) to be responsive and flexible. LXP makes it easy for HR, L&D teams and senior management to establish a learning system that is capable of addressing short-term and long-term business requirements.

Unlike conventional learning systems which perform well only with relatively stable or facilitator-managed content, LXP is flexible, scalable and best suited to the dynamic needs of a team. This adaptability makes it a particularly advantageous option for industries undergoing constant change.

Concluding Thoughts

An LXP plays a key role in creating comprehensive training programs that have a huge impact on employee training. Its customizable nature, coupled with features like collaborative learning and microlearning enable it to cater to the unique learning needs of individual learners.

While traditional training programs may sometimes feel monotonous, LXP offers creative and engaging learning, ultimately elevating employee morale and motivation. Deploying an LXP can yield widespread benefits to improve modern employee learning experiences, thanks to its innovative and customizable features designed to address diverse training needs.
