April 18: How to Provide Learning to People Outside Your Organization

Join us for a free Webinar:

Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM MST

Partners, suppliers, contractors, interns, volunteers, association members, customers… How did all these people sneak into our learning initiatives? Clearly, work today is different from back in the days of three-martini lunches in smoky lounges and asking your assistant to “be a sweetheart and fetch me a cup of coffee.”

The Internet has revolutionized how work is done today. The boundaries between organizations have blurred, replaced with greater communication and collaboration. Information—including learning content—flows between institutions, eventually reaching the customers who will use the products or services.

So how do you provide learning to those outside your organization?

Join Richard Nantel, VP, Enterprise Learning Solutions at Blatant Media, as he discusses:

  • The impact of the “extended enterprise” on learning and development
  • How to register and enroll external learners into your learning initiatives
  • How to provide reports to external managers and administrators
  • What to do when the learning initiative ends
  • How extending learning to people outside your organization can be great for business

How to Provide Learning to People Outside Your Organization

Increasingly, organizations are expanding their internal learning programs to now include partners, suppliers, contractors, association members, and customers, among others. We’ve just written a case study describing one such scenario.

A company has signed a work agreement with a partner organization. The agreement states that the partner’s employees must be qualified, and certified, before they can deliver their services. As a learning professional responsible for this initiative, how do you ensure that these external learners will get the skills and qualifications they require?

Video: How Jennifer Automates the Management of an Extended Enterprise Learning Initiative

If you’re a regular reader of this Blog, you’ve read about how learning management systems can be configured to automate many of the activities required to manage a learning and development initiative. You may have read this, but you may not have SEEN it. 😉 So here’s a short video showing how this is done within Absorb LMS.

Let’s set the stage:

Jennifer is employed as a Learning Manager in a medical supply company, MedSupply Inc. She has just been informed that her organization has signed an agreement with a new distributor, Safe Distribution LLC. The contract between the two firms specifies that Safe Distribution’s employees must undertake a certification-based learning program to ensure that they understand the safe handling of MedSupply’s products.

Jennifer does not know who Safe Distribution’s learners are, nor how many there are. She’s been informed that up to 500 Safe Distribution employees may require certification. Compounding the challenge, the time frame for training is short. Safe Distribution employees must be certified within 60 days.

The good news is that the required course is already created. All MedSupply internal employees have undertaken the same certification-based program.

Jennifer now needs to:

  • Register these external learners into the learning management system
  • Enroll these individuals into the appropriate course
  • Provide status learner progress reports to MedSupply’s and Safe Distribution’s management
  • Issue certificates to the learners who successfully complete the learning program
  • Provide learners with a refresher course

The video below illustrates the steps Jennifer took to configure the LMS for this learning program.

Note: Jennifer, MedSupply, and Safe Distribution are all fictional. Any resemblance to a Jennifer you may know is coincidental.
