Knowledge and Training

“Our virtual instructor-led training is very interactive, but we also provide learners with workbooks for the class in Inkling that gives them an outlet to do class pre-work, listen to audio, watch videos, use additional information, and take notes. With these workbooks, we also have a chance to see how many people are leveraging it. So, are they doing homework? Are they not doing the homework? So it’s a true way of tracking training,” said the Director of Learning & Development at Orangetheory Fitness.
With Inkling, you can flip traditional learning processes for more effectiveness and impact. Bring learning to your learners with a mobile learning platform that delivers learning on demand in the flow of work instead of bringing your learners to the classroom.

With millions of page views per month, most Inkling customers report 80-90%+ adoption of modern, digital learning. Retention rates go from 30% for instructor-led learning to 90% with active learning. Just-in-time learning also delivers what employees want: 58% prefer to learn at their own pace and 49% want to learn in the flow of work.

With Inkling, you can track key learning metrics to evaluate how learning programs are performing in your organization. Get the data you need to measure results and see what activities and content are adding value to your customer service, cost cutting and revenue growth.
Usage data can show where learners are spending their time, who is using course material, what course materials are being used, and how progress falls across a specific group—to gain insight into the learner experience and where it can be improved.
Learning analytics can help reveal the learner’s preferences, uncover poor learning programs, and identify areas in need of improvement so you can prioritize programs that work and modify or eliminate he programs that aren’t effective.
