If you search for courses or look at MOOC sites, such as Lynda or Udemy, the outcome differs a lot to what people make in Easygenerator. People look for skills they need or think they need on MOOCs.
The content created in Easygenerator, however, is much more specific to a company (culture), an industry (regulations) or job title (tutorials).
Content created in Easygenerator can be divided into four categories:
- HR / Formal training (40%)
- Product Training (23%)
- Work instructions (20%)
- Other (17%)
HR / Formal Training: (Remembering) (40%)
The more formal courses are mostly there to serve as documentation. Think company values, compliance, company guidelines, and policies. If we look at Bloom’s Taxonomy (the standard model in L&D of classifying the complexity and specificity of learning), we are looking at the lowest stage: “Remembering”. Formal training is often created by Instructional Designers, as its outcome is less prone to change and it is top-down.
- Onboarding Training
- Compliance Training
Product Training (Understanding): (23%)
The content we find in the product training category mostly give the learner a frame of reference to do their job:
- Product Training
- Partner Training
- Product Certification
- Software Training
- Customer Support Training
Product Training always solves a need for information to be interpreted, exemplified or explained. This is the “Understand” stage in Bloom’s Taxonomy. Content created in this category gives the learner/consumer a frame of reference to be able to do their job.
