Some Tips to Start Using Computer-Based Training
1. Position Yourself as an Advocate
New policies and procedures tend to necessitate training. When the purpose for computer based training is to teach new technology because of a policy or procedure change, a trainer can find themselves in the middle of a civil war – employees against the policy and procedure changers (usually management).
Rather than allow the training session to become a gripe session, focus on the training at hand. You can empathize with how the trainees feel about the new process, technology or other reason for training. At the same time, you have to turn their concerns into angles for presenting the information to train them.
2. Combine Benefits and Challenges
Whatever the focus is on computer based training, the issue at hand has its set of benefits and its own set of challenges. Try to offset the challenges employees recognize the benefits. At various points during the training session, stop and ask what positive attributes the employees see from the training on the new system or material.
If someone mentions a challenge, try to turn it around. Recognize what the employee is saying, but try to show them how the new technology or procedure they are learning resolves this challenge. In other words, illustrate the good points of the change and detract their attention away from the perceived disadvantages.
3. Start with a Training Outline
A training outline can help you avoid embarrassing training mistakes. What is a training outline? A training outline is a plan for how your training should be created, delivered and assessed with a goal to achieving your desired outcomes. Forgetting to cover some key content points, then trying to go back and cover those points after you realize you left them out, then running out of time for participants to ask all the questions they wanted to ask because you had to backtrack to cover what you missed, and then afterwards wondering if your audience really got what they needed out of the training, can all lead to some unfortunate outcomes.
To ensure your computer-based training is meeting all your objectives, we recommend creating effective training outlines with align your goals and objectives. You can also contact eLeaP for assistance getting started.
