What Is A Learning Nudge?
Learning Nudges build on the ‘microlearning’ approach to training. They are brief, bite-sized learning modules delivered to mobile devices, and suited perfectly for the modern day workforce. This microlearning delivered by email, text or via a company LMS, offers positive reinforcement to influence behavior and decision making. Think of it as a series of 'gentle pushes' over a span of time. It's subtle guidance as compared to coercion.
In contrast to traditional training models, Learning and Development professionals have discovered that ongoing Learning Nudges lead to greater knowledge retention. They overcome the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve that afflicts traditional workshop training and e-learning, demonstrating that nearly 60% of knowledge is lost, just an hour after it's learned.
