The main reason why training sometimes fails to have a real strategic impact within companies is that function managers often don't have the time, the capabilities or tools to measure its effectiveness in a systematic way.
Those who regularly use an LMS platform are certainly benefited by the availability of data, but many times the reports produced are too standardized, and therefore not in keeping with the precise measurement of the real effectiveness of the e-learning courses used.
The problem becomes even more evident when the need to measure face-to-face training arises, especially if performed with experiential paths.
The latest Brandon Hall Group report 2019, analyzing the issues of greatest challenge for training, put in the first place (74%) the inability to measure the impact of training and in second place the misalignment between training and results ( 51%).
WHAT DOES PIAZZA COPERNICO DO FOR MEASURING TRAINING?
For Piazza Copernico, measuring effectiveness has always been an ongoing commitment.
A commitment that we develop in all fields of training
Our Labe-l Academy platform is a solid training tool, grown over time thanks to the experience of the many companies that have chosen it for the management of their own training, customizable, with a wide range of features and the guarantee of excellent User Experience.
E-LEARNING COURSES DEVELOPMENT
When we develop a new e-learning course, we never forget the last but essential phase of the path, theEVALUATION.
In the formative assessment phase, the skills learned are tested according to the training objectives set.
An evaluation of the entire project is also carried out in order to identify possible improvements.
We adopt sophisticated Learning Analytics tools, which can be used both in mode stand alone is integrated into the corporate platform (not necessarily ours).
DATA LEARNING ANALYTICS it is a dashboard for the analysis of course progress, with the possibility of comparing different editions of a course or organization chart nodes, with the ability to analyze recurring patterns and classify behavior on courses.
The tool implements an analysis system that gives the opportunity to understand:
- the effective use of a course, to identify not only study styles and preferences, but also the critical areas of the course itself;
- user behavior in relation to a specific course to evaluate the effectiveness of design and organizational choices;
- the most effective teaching solutions, attention to the different types of course, the use of teaching time, the impact of variables external to the courses.
From our commitment in Research and Development this software was born Semantic analysis and Sentiment of large volumes of open texts.
The Semantic Analysis and Sentiment algorithms analyze the words of the original texts to discover the themes that go through them, how they are connected to each other and how they change over time or in relation to specific variables.
An essential tool when you want to analyze for example evaluation questionnaires of a course that contain open questions.
Through algorithms it is possible to overcome the intrinsic subjectivity and effort required in a manual analysis work, to have a truly objective synthesis.
