What role does SC Training (formerly EdApp) play in a modern HR tech stack?

Modern HR departments have more responsibilities than ever before. Not only are they responsible for recruiting top talent, onboarding new employees, and retaining their work force, but they are also in charge of overseeing benefits administration, payroll, and compensation. It’s a lot of pressure for one single department to deal with. And somewhere between all these duties, employees must be trained, and their skills sharpened. There are many tools on the market that can be considered in a modern HR tech stack, but with so much to do and so little time to do it, it’s important that only the strongest be considered. And right now, the strongest and most versatile learning platforms are mobile-based.

Mobile learning has grown exponentially in recent years, coinciding not just with the rise of smartphones and handheld devices, but also the level of dependency individuals place on the technology. According to Marketing Land, 65 per cent of all digital media is viewed on smartphones. And according to DScout, the average person spends nearly three hours on their smartphone each day, touching the screen more than 2,600 times and glancing at it roughly 221 times. With these numbers in mind, it’s no surprise that learning has found a niche market in the mobile world. According to ReportLinker, the global mobile learning market will hit over US 78.5 billion by 2025.

Add to that the increasingly remote nature of education and work, and employers need to rely on online learning platforms to help train employees.

HR Tech Stack – Microlearning

Microlearning is a subset of eLearning, however it has gained more recognition with the advent of smartphone technology. In 2019, the global microlearning market was worth 1,5 billion USD. That number is expected to increase to 2.7 billion USD by 2024. As the name implies, microlearning is when complicated information is broken down into bite-sized chunks. These ‘chunks’ are highly-targeted lessons that are easier to digest and therefore, easier to retain and remember later. Courses that incorporate microlearning can sometimes see their completion rates rise from as low as 15 per cent all the way up to 90 per cent.

SC Training (formerly EdApp) is one of the most progressive microlearning solutions on the market with advanced LMS features. It allows learners to implement knowledge almost immediately into their workday. Use the mobile-first authoring tool to structure lessons around your content. When combined with delivery on a smartphone device, you can truly enable your learners to engage at a time and place that’s convenient for them. Their microlearning platform is one of the strongest assets that can be integrated into a modern HR tech stack.

HR Tech Stack – Gamification

Learning is most effective when it doesn’t feel like learning. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s built-in gamification features transform regular questions and answers into competitive games. Everything is built-in to their interactive templates, so creating fun and engaging lessons has never been simpler.

Gamification is the process of turning a mundane task into a game. Doing so lowers the mental barriers to absorbing new information, which improves the likelihood of knowledge embedding in long-term memory. Gamified learning environment motivates learners, leads to better engagement with content and is proven to enhance message retention. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s gamification tools allow you to quickly and effectively gamify training by simply adding your learning materials to existing gamified templates: all you need to bring is knowledge.
