With the corporate IT training world shifting towards digitized learning, Ernesto Lee has created learning paths for structured advanced high-tech IT programs. The amount of e-learning and hybrid (live remote instructor led training with other online resources) programs are increasing daily. It can be time consuming to enroll each learner individually in a way that adds value to everybody. Additionally, each learner has unique skills and backgrounds so it can be quite complicated to find a single course that meets the needs of all students. This is where the AI Driven Ernesto.Net Learning Paths, developed by Ernesto Lee, come to save you from the hassle.
Learning Paths are the pre-defined paths of learning that suggest the related courses to the learners and help them to master a degree, a subject, or a particular skill. With Ernesto.Net, these Learning Paths can be customized to each individual student with patent pending technology that eliminates scrap learning to save time and money. It is simple to set up and saves a lot of time and energy as it automates your programs.
If you’re running a business (or the training division of a corporation) and you want individuals to learn a particular skill set, you can rely on learning paths to optimize your training budget. Develop a learning path instead of just picking a “class”. It is even more powerful when the learners are from the same department/background and have to learn similar skills.
Examples of Learning Path Usage
The best way to understand Learning Paths is to see them in action. Let’s do that now with everyday examples of them in use:
Learning Path for Data Analytics Employees of an Organization
When an organization needs to train its newly hired employees or needs to update the skill set of the existing employees, learning pathways serve as a large time saver. You won’t have to train each employee individually, reach out to our team and we can work together to direct students to specific courses by the learning pathway.
The learning pathway will keep each employee on track. Once an employee finishes a particular skill/course, they will be automatically enrolled into the next course in the sequence. This saves the employees as well as the admin from the unnecessary hassle. Learning paths can be a combination of live instructor led training or other training resources.
Learning Path for Students
Another great example of learning path usage is the LMS for students where students from any field of study can enroll and learn specialized skill sets available in the Learning Paths.
Students can enroll in the LMS and learn specific skills through the courses ordered into the learning paths. As soon as the student finishes a particular set of skill-challenges or courses, he or she will be specialized in that particular subject and will be enrolled into another skillset of their choice predefined in learning pathways.
We have noticed that many students have ranked the hands-on labs as the most valuable part of our course. Learning paths allow students to go directly to the lab of interest and learn the skill of interest without the scrap training.
Types of the Learning Paths
Sequential Learning Path
This learning path works in the exact opposite way to the learner’s choice learning path. In this case, the learner has to follow the sequence of a learning path. This means you can’t move forward without completing the previous courses. For example, if you’re enrolled in a learning pathway that has data analytics-related courses, you have to complete all six courses before moving to the data science courses.
Learner’s choice Learning Path
This type allows the learner to complete a few courses from one pathway and enroll into another learning pathway. There is no compulsion of completing the first learning pathway completely to enroll into another pathway. For example, there are five learning paths in an LMS with 4 courses each. If a student has completed 3 courses of one of these learning paths, he or she can enroll in any of the other learning paths without completing the fourth course of the first learning path. Students check the title and description of each course and decide which courses are useful for them and enroll in their desired courses. It gives power to the learner to choose their own learning path.
Learning Paths with specified timeframes
This is a less common type of the Learning Path. These learning paths have a timeframe specified for each course. A learner cannot move on to the next course (even if they have finished the course) until the time specified for the previous courses has elapsed. This enables you to control the availability of the next course for the learner. For example, a learner is enrolled in a learning pathway with 5 courses in it. The learner finishes course one in two days, however, the time specified for course one is four days. The learner won’t be able to move to course two for two more days. As the fifth day starts, the learner will be granted access to course two. This allows you to control the timeframe of each course. You can grant access to the next course after a time you think is ample to digest the knowledge of the first course.
In short, the learning path is a remarkable method of arranging and organizing the training courses into a sequence of your own choice. You can also control the time frame of each course and it makes your training more automatic and visibly reduces your effort and time consumption. It is preferred by the learners as it gives them goal-oriented guidance throughout their training. Our algorithm ensures that learning is personalized for each learner. Lastly, we integrate learning paths with other amazing features like Certification, Gamification, Brand Integration and more so you can boost the overall productivity and efficiency of your training.
