Designing Content

Content is a vital factor in the effectiveness of training. For the most part, a discussion aimed at the basic level of how to interact with a new system should begin with and include a description of the total system — why it was designed and implemented, the major objectives, the connection with other systems, and overriding elements of the system.

For example, a large bank has recognized that its employees have differing training styles and training needs. If executives need to use systems, which in this organization is infrequent, a trainer is dispatched to deliver training one-on-one. Although traditional classroom training is still offered, the bank has migrated toward multimedia training where a computer is coupled with video and audio. The bank has found multimedia training to be effective because of the richness of the media and because it allows people to try out the system and make mistakes. Another advantage of the computer-based multimedia training is that it allows people to complete the training when they need it, not on a schedule.
