Self-Directed Learning at Work – The Myth that is Costing Organizations Millions
New solutions that are aligned to current trends in personal technology use, such as video-learning and on-demand courses, are incessantly peddled to organizations as the ticket to the future of learning for employees. And why should leaders question the validity of these products? Search engines like Google are used for people who readily seek information on topics of interest. Forums like TedEX, Kahn Academy, and YouTube drive millions of users who leverage these websites to absorb countless hours of learning. Corporations strive to capture this self-directed, on-demand learning behavior in their own organizations, and the efforts continuously fall flat, leaving many stumped and searching for a solution.
