When we think of self-paced training content, eLearning modules often come to mind. Even with the development of “choose-your-own-adventure” content and the inclusion of bells-and-whistles, eLearning can fail to resonate with modern learners.
This narrow view of self-paced learning hinders our creativity and limits the success of our learners. What if, instead, we elevated self-paced content to better bolster our blended training? Recently, when our team worked on a self-paced instructional design project for a client, we made five surprising discoveries about this training option.

The modern learning landscape presents a unique set of challenges. Never before have learners had greater access to information, a greater drive to discover answers for themselves, or a greater number of demands on their time.
Formal training no longer provides the end-all-be-all solution for our organizations. While it has an important place in the instructional design line-up, it represents just one of many options we need to include in our blends.
By better understanding our audience, identifying a training solution, and transitioning to something new and innovative, we can improve the learning experience within our organizations.
