Richard Vicary, our Head of Digital Services at KnowledgePoint gives us an insight into our learning tool MyLiveBook and the benefits and support it offers.
What does “learning tech stack” mean?
Once upon a time, an organisation would seek an enterprise platform to deliver all of their learning needs. Including learning records, content development, content delivery, learner collaboration and interaction, and talent identification. This typically meant prioritising your requirements and picking the best overall fit, but knowing that you were going to have to make some sacrifices along the way as no-one was able to offer the perfect solution. The concept of the tech stack is a recognition that there are 100s of options for each of those components. Rather than having to choose a single platform and make a compromise, you can take the best of breed from these offerings to create a learning ecosystem that delivers in all areas.
Where does MLB sit in a learning tech stack?
MLB enhances the delivery of learning support materials, materials that once upon a time may have been printed and perhaps are presently stored as pdf download links amongst other eLearning assets. It gives learners the ability to annotate these otherwise flat documents. It also centralises their storage so that learners can pick up on one device where they left off on another. MyLiveBook breathes life into what may other be cumbersome or heavy documents.
In your experience, what’s important to learning organisations when choosing a method for delivering their learning content?
Firstly, does it deliver a benefit to the learner?
Secondly, can it do this as an integrated part of my learning delivery?
Finally, how easy is it to administrate – can the deployment of the platform be automated?
What is a common issue that you find customers come to you with?
Delivering a solution that excites their customers without increasing the cost of management.
What is your favourite benefit that MLB offers?
I love that it integrates with the learning stack and keeps all learning content accessible from one place.
