NanoLearn

Knowledge Organization and Validation


NanoLearn - Informal Learning for SharePoint

What It Is: NanoLearn uses microlearning techniques to build and deploy shorter duration learning, minimizing the complexity of traditional eLearning courses to help organize and validate knowledge. NanoLearn allows content to be left where it originates, such as in SharePoint, OneDrive, embedded media, URL’s and other external sources. NanoLearn can optionally be deployed with a minimized interface to further simplify the user experience, which is especially important for tablet and mobile devices.


How it Works
How it Works:  The NanoLearn process is easy to master and quick to deploy. Users identified as contributors first go to the NanoLearn web part. From there, they can create a new Nano Object by searching for content in SharePoint or inserting a URL to utilize content from the internet/intranet. Once identified, the contributor then assigns a value (points) to the document/media and determines how they will validate that object once a consumer has viewed the information and understands it’s content.

The Missing Piece:  SharePoint and other excellent Enterprise Content Management platforms with a wide range of capabilities are growing in adoption. However, there’s no easy way to track and validate employees’ understanding of the knowledge within reference libraries, SharePoint, One Drive or external sources. NanoLearn helps leverage knowledge to keep users updated on the latest company news, job-related information, and institutional knowledge such as company policies and compliance requirements. As a result, management is provided with increased visibility to employee awareness, which can be correlated and measured against organizational objectives/goals.

Validation: Learners using NanoLearn see a Table of Contents, where they can launch the knowledge nuggets of content. Validation can be optionally used to see how well the user understood material. Once this cycle is completed, reports provide visibility about who has viewed what, and how well they understood it.


Validation Methods
View Only: Track that the consumer has accessed the content
Knowledge Check: Create questions for the consumer to answer after viewing the content
Survey: Gather information/opinions about the object from the consumer after they’ve view the content
Interaction: A back-and-forth between the consumer and contributor where an action is requested (such as initiating a chat or email), is then submitted by the consumer, and finally read and valued by the contributor
eSignature: The consumer digitally signs that they viewed and understood the content
