Knowledge Organization and Validation

NanoLearn - Informal Learning for SharePoint

What It Is:

NanoLearn uses microlearning techniques to build and deploy shorter duration learning, minimizing the complexity of traditional eLearning courses to help organize and validate knowledge. NanoLearn allows content to be left where it originates, such as in SharePoint, OneDrive, embedded media, URL’s and other external sources. NanoLearn can optionally be deployed with a minimized interface to further simplify the user experience, which is especially important for tablet and mobile devices.

How it WorksHow it Works:

The NanoLearn process is easy to master and quick to deploy. Users identified as Subject Matter Experts first go to the NanoLearn Assembler. From there, they can create learning by referring to content in place on the internet or an organization’s intranet. Once content is identified for use as knowledge sharing / learning, the contributor then optionally associates a knowledge check, survey, and/or resources such as FAQs, or URL to the document/media. These optional associations can be used to validate a Learner has viewed the information and understands its content.

treeThe Missing Piece:

SharePoint and other excellent Enterprise Content Management platforms with a wide range of capabilities are growing in adoption. However, there’s no easy way to track and validate employees’ understanding of the knowledge within reference libraries, SharePoint, One Drive or external sources. NanoLearn helps leverage knowledge to keep users updated on the latest company news, job-related information, and institutional knowledge such as company policies and compliance requirements. As a result, management is provided with increased visibility to employee awareness, which can be correlated and measured against organizational objectives/goals.

Learners using NanoLearn see a Table of Contents, where they can launch the knowledge nuggets of content. Validation can be optionally used to see how well the user understood material. Once this cycle is completed, reports provide visibility about who has viewed what, and how well they understood it.



Validation Methods
View Only: Track that the consumer has accessed the content
Knowledge Check: Create questions for the consumer to answer after viewing the content
Survey: Gather information/opinions about the object from the consumer after they’ve view the content
