Adaptive Learning: Utilizing AI and Social Collaboration for User-Centric

Training Results

Have you enrolled in training where much of the material covered was far too simple for you? Or clicked through on-demand training modules as quickly as possible because the content was largely irrelevant to your job role, yet needed to be completed to show your competency on a topic? Many thought leaders in training and development believe that Adaptive Learning and AI will change the way that the next-gen workforce will learn and adopt new skills into practice. Adaptive learning is a method of on-demand instruction that orchestrates artificial intelligence and sophisticated algorithms to present the next appropriate action, based on what it knows about each unique learner. It evolves moment-by-moment using trial and error as the environment changes for the individual learner. Joi n in to hear a panel discussion that will provide insight into how and why adaptive learning and artificial intelligence will transform the way that the workforce will learn new skills in the future.
