“We have aligned our teams, offerings and services to accommodate the urgency for quick online learning migrations that we’re hearing from the market and our Fortune 1000 customers, including GE, S&P Global and Nestlé,” said Scott Kinney, CEO of NovoEd

NovoEd, which provides a collaborative online learning platform for the enterprise, today announced that usage of and time spent on its learning platform have more than doubled over the past two months, while use of its social features has tripled. These increases are driven by the migration of critical in-person training initiatives online, as the majority of the workforce remains remote amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

NovoEd also reported that corporate demand for its course building, design and facilitation services has doubled in the past two months. Enterprises want to respond quickly, further evidenced by a recent NovoEd poll in which two-thirds of surveyed corporations indicated they want to move their critical onsite training online in the next three months.

To support corporations with this accelerated transition to online learning, NovoEd today introduced its COVID-19 Resource Center, a content hub providing companies with free access to webinars, ebooks, blog posts, infographics and other pieces of content that focus on how to quickly transition onsite training programs online during these unprecedented times.

“Most critical enterprise training is still conducted in-person, which is now impossible due to our current remote work landscape,” said Scott Kinney, CEO of NovoEd. “At NovoEd, we have aligned our teams, offerings and services – especially our expert learning experience design consultants – to accommodate the urgency for quick online learning migrations that we’re hearing from the market and our Fortune 1000 customers, including GE, S&P Global and Nestlé.”

A Four-Step Online Transition Strategy
To assist corporations with online learning migrations through these challenging times, content in NovoEd’s COVID-19 Resource Center centers around four successful online transition strategies that NovoEd has identified:

  • Spread the learning over time: Increase retention for learners by allowing learning to happen over an extended time period.
  • Design learning experiences for application: Ensure learners build capabilities through opportunities to apply the learning in authentic work situations.
  • Create and curate content: Enrich and contextualize your learning experience with a combination of existing and new content.
  • Preserve the social learning experience: Maintain group connections and accountability of in-person experiences by incorporating facilitated cohorts with deadlines.

Following these four steps, enterprises need to focus on scaling their online learning programs organization-wide for maximum impact. This final step, covered in the Resource Center, is imperative to critical skill-building, as well as business growth and continuity.

“These four online transition strategies are critical to helping corporations rapidly migrate important in-person training online,” said Drew Remiker, Head of Learning Experience Design at NovoEd. “At NovoEd, we’re committed to helping our customers through their online training migrations during these unprecedented times. Through our COVID-19 Resource Center, we’re helping all organizations navigate these new challenges by maintaining and supporting the continuity of critical learning and training initiatives.”
