An Advancement In Instructor-Led Training


Industry experts and Corporates have identified the need for Employee training periodically to sustain a more knowledgeable and productive workforce. A company can choose the best Learning Management System (LMS) to achieve its goal. 

LMS is a vast term that defines software used to create, manage, and deliver educational content by students or employees. It can be either hosted on the company server or as a cloud-based platform. One of the modules in LMS is Instructor-Led Training.

Instructor led Training

Instructor-Led Training commonly known as ILT can be simply defined as the practice of training facilitated by a trainer or instructor through offline or online modes.

The traditional way of taking a lecture in a school or even in a company is Instructor-Led training.

But, with the advancement in technology and the increase in the need for eLearning, some Industry-specific words are being used and one of such terms is Instructor-Led training.

The efficiency of the learners’ subject depends on the knowledge of the trainer or instructor.

Benefits of Instructor-Led Training

Access to Expert Advice

Instructor-Led training defined by the name itself is the training by an expert instructor or trainer in a particular subject. Hence the learners can have the access to ask for questions, other subject materials to study, real-time hurdles, etc

Immediate Feedback

As there is a personal interaction either directly or virtually between the instructor and the learner, the doubts and questions which a learner has will be solved in the realtime and then there will be immediate feedback from the instructor to learners and vice versa.

Personalized Training

Unlike the fixed online recorded classes, the total learners can be divided into smaller groups based on the subject, performance, hierarchy level, etc. This will help the learners to gain a personalized training experience.

Learning Management System

Community or Network of Learners

Instructor Learners can learn from the doubts of others. Dedicated time and space not only help the learners to absorb more information but also to build a healthy relationship with other students or colleagues.

Tracking and Measuring Performance

Tracking and measuring of the performance can be done by taking assessments either online or offline. It helps the instructor to identify the knowledge of the learner and modify further classes accordingly.

Why Training?

People learn a lot of things in their study hood but cannot retain them for a lifetime. Also, as technology advances and improvements in workplace strategies and methods, there is a need for regular training to increase the productivity of the workforce.

It is the best opportunity for employees especially to enhance skills and knowledge which helps in their performance appraisals, higher responsibilities, and morale. 

There was a commonly used formula known as 70-20-10 model which says that 70% of the learning comes from on-job tasks, engagement with superiors, decision making, etc. 20% from peer discussions, team management, and the remaining 10% from the events like Instructor-Led Training.

There are different types of training like Management training, Sales training, On-Job training, In-house training, Blended training, Mentoring scheme, Personal study, etc.

AR in Training

AR refers to Augmented Reality. The name itself suggests that the digital content or information overlays the physical world as if it were actually residing with us. AR glasses will be used to gain that experience.

AR in Training

This is a new era of using AR in training to create a real-time, more engaging experience and better understanding. It helps the training to be more interactive and helps the learners to retain the subject for a longer time.

We are now just at the beginning of adapting this augmented reality in Corporate training. But there is a low way to go to reap the mammoth benefits of it.
