360Learning - today, we’re picking a fight

Today, we’re picking a fight with SCORM.


It might ruffle a few feathers in the instructional design community, but it needs to be said: SCORM is outdated, and we all deserve something better. Why are we stuck with this dinosaur technology? We know it’s a complex and nuanced topic, so we’ve interviewed several leading L&D thinkers to bring in more perspectives for us to chew on.

We’re not starting a scuffle just for the sake of it, either. We’re calling out SCORM because we want to find better ways to help you deliver the learning experiences your teams really want. 

That’s what motivates us to help you put L&D at the heart of your employee engagement strategy, or improve your internal communications, and get the most out of your institutional knowledge by embracing organizational learning. It’s why we bring you stories of market-leading companies like Greenhouse Software using team collaboration to deliver great customer education, and using mentorship programs to build a people-first culture.

And because we want you to be prepared for every eventuality, we’re also here with 7 scenarios every team needs to include in their crisis management training.

So, grab a cup of tea and take a look at this week’s resources.

Why Are We Still Stuck with SCORM? A Debate with L&D Experts


SCORM is like the Imperial system of measurement: no-one remembers choosing it, but we sure are stuck with it now. Fortunately, we’ve got a way to move past this flat, clunky technology and offer learning experiences that are interactive, engaging, and collaborative.

But we don’t expect you to just take our word for it, which is why we’ve asked leading L&D experts like Christopher Lind and Laura Overton to weigh in and offer their thoughts on the future of SCORM. Check out what they have to say, and join the debate on LinkedIn. Then, when you’re ready, read all about our alternative to SCORM.

Why L&D Should Be at the Heart of Every Employee Engagement Strategy


What do employees desperately want—even above pay raises, benefits, and, dare I say it...ping pong tables? The answer is: opportunities for workplace learning and professional development. L&D teams are uniquely positioned to build employee engagement strategies that draw in, motivate, and reward all employees. We’ll explain why.

5 Ways to Improve Your Company's Internal Communications


Have you ever sat down to dinner with your family, and the mood feels icy? Sarah’s staring at her plate, Max is texting discretely under the table. Nobody has anything to say, except for that one comment that sparks a tiff that finishes in awkward conversation. That’s bad internal communications—and you wouldn’t want that same vibe in the office, either. 

Let's build better internal comms

Greenhouse Software’s 3-Step Collaboration Playbook for Great Customer Education


Customer education is a high-stakes part of every business. Your customers expect consistent, clear, and accurate communications on the ins and outs of your product–but how can you deliver this when you’re growing like crazy? In this interview, Greenhouse Software Learning Experience Designer Sebastian Skarbek breaks down his 3-step collaboration playbook.

Why You Can't Afford to Ignore Organizational Learning


If “no man is an island,” then why is so much valuable workplace knowledge lost or hidden forever? It’s because too many companies don’t invest in organizational learning. Having individual employees that are experts at their job is great. But what’s 100 times better is when they can easily share that knowledge at the company level. 

Let's get organized

7 Scenarios to Include in Your Crisis Management Training Program


Let’s face it: nobody has a crystal ball. If we could predict every crisis that was looming, it’d be a lot easier to mitigate fallout and keep things looking rosy. But what we CAN do is prioritize certain scenarios for crisis management training. That way, even if the unexpected hits, employees are prepared and know what to do.

It pays to be prepared

How to Build a People-First Culture Through Mentorship 

Yoda and Luke. Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey. Mr. Miyagi and the Karate Kid. Whether we’re talking make-believe or the real world, mentorships are one of the most effective ways to put people at the heart of your workplace culture, boost retention, and transmit institutional knowledge. But how can you get started? Our friends at Together have all the tips you need! 

Wax on, wax off

And that’s it from me this week! 

Take care and you'll hear from me soon 💛,
