A Guide To Remote Learning 

Family Practicing Remote Learning

As the work-from-home trend continues, so will the need (and preference) to train and learn from home.

According to CRN.com, with an expanded permanent work-from-home workforce, there will be a need for more support in terms of IT strategies, technological support, and software solutions.

The way we look at working and learning is changing.  And, it will continue to change moving forward.  With these changes, in-person training will not be successful.  It just doesn’t work in the modern world.

What is Remote Learning?

English Class Online Learning

Remote Learning, also known as Distance Learning  is where the learner and the educator, are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment.  Remote Learning can occur synchronously with real-time peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration, or asynchronously, with self-paced learning activities that take place independently of the instructor allowing learners access regardless of location.

What is a Learning Management System?

A Learning Management System (often referred to as an LMS) is a software application used as a platform to host online training.  An LMS also allows you to track who takes the training and can generate reports on learner progress and performance.   

What How do you get an LMS?

There are many distinguished LMS companies, but the problem is, they don’t create content.  Furthermore, the companies that do create content, do not provide the LMS.  Rockfish Learning Management bridges the gap and provides both services, as a “one stop shop”.  This means that eLearning Design and Development, as well as, Implementation and Evaluation are all a part of the project.

Moving from Type of Learning to Training Solution 

Once you know what type of learning you want to incorporate, you can move forward to your training solution.  For example, would a Lunch & Learn be the most fitting for your audience and message or a series of Workshops?  Maybe just one course with multiple chapters, custom created; or video creation with recognition of your brand.

In the Analysis Phase of our Instructional Design Model, we will help you to determine the Training Solution most fitting to your project.

How to Develop Learning Objectives 

Blooms Taxonomy is a great way to structure learning objectives as it is an easy-to-use, hierarchal classification of the different objectives and skills that educators set for their students  .  Each level of learning builds on the one prior; meaning the higher levels are dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at the lower levels.

The 6 Levels of Learning according to Blooms Taxonomy are as follows.  Each level is followed by associated words that can be used when creating learning objectives:

  1. Remembering – “List, Find, Name, Identify, Locate, Describe, Memorize, Define”
  2. Understanding – “Interpret, Summarize, Explain, Infer, Paraphrase, Discuss”
  3. Applying – “Use, Diagram, Draw, Apply, Solve, Calculate”
  4. Analyzing – “Categorize, Examine, Compare/Contrast, Organize”
  5. Evaluating – “Judge, Test, Critique, Defend, Criticize”
  6. Creating – “Design, Build, Construct, Plan, Produce, Devise, Invent”

Many people have started working at home as a result of COVID-19.  And, many of them will continue working from home when the threat of the pandemic is gone.

 Global Workplace Analytics  say that “the longer people are required to work at home, the greater adoption we will see when the dust settles”.  They predict that by the end 2021, 25-30% of the workforce will be working from home multiple days a week.
