Giving everyone a chance to succeed

We all know that social change happens when people have the resources to succeed, and that’s what’s driving our member organizations to deliver learning to their staff. The LINGOs Learning Platform (LLP) makes it simple for any organization to manage their staff’s learning. However, most organizations depend on the help of people who may not be working for the organization, but in some way, help the organization to achieve their mission. The LLP can be used to reach those learners.

Recently, I had a chance to hear from LINGOs members who have been offering courses to an external audience including partners, fellows, interns and others. Their testimonies are truly inspiring and get to heart of what LINGOs is all about – delivering the right training to the right people at the right time.

Five ways to embed Learning in your organization

 

The year is now in full swing and I’m really excited about the learning innovations that LINGOs has in store, but then I’m a Learning and Development professional – and perhaps you are too! What we really need is for people across our organizations to get excited about using learning to make a bigger impact.

In this blog I’ll be sharing five ways to make learning relevant to your whole organization. With increasing pressures on funding and a greater scrutiny on performance, many support functions are coming under the microscope. Information systems, finance, legal, HR and Learning all need to deliver clear and sustainable value or they will be given a mandate to change, be eliminated or be outsourced.

Three things I have learned in the last three years of “rolling-out” the Introduction to Child Centered Community Development (CCCD) Module

Designing eLearning Courses with Localization in Mind

A guest post by Ingenuiti, a LINGOs partner.

Do you design or create training content or eLearning courses for an organization that operates globally? If you think your content will reach a global audience, you should consider integrating localization as part of your development process.

How can we improve the online learning experience? What kind of new courses can we offer to motivate them to want to continue their learning journey?
