How do you improve learner engagement/usage of the RLMS? Looking for Creative Suggestions...
1j) All new employees have to do policy & procedure acknowledgement =embedded in courses - that gets them used to using Relias system.
2) Our annual Performance Evaluations build in training compliance. If courses are not done by end of year, no raise will be given even if due!!
Suggestions for other aeas:
1) Would like for Administrators to be able ot access other libraries - produtc lines' courses to preview their courses, ie., OSHA,
1) Training Expectation engrained on day 1- 1 year to have 40 hours of training if not, terminated.
-Have managers on board that training is a priority in the agency.
-Competitive games with other departments
2) Offer incentives to have employees attend instructor led classes
Recognize staff in meeting to let the team know that they have completed the training.
3) Attendance sheets, no sign in sheet
We do some of the same things Connie does.
Therefore from the beginning, relias is built into staff training in addition to offering a calendar of face to face training's.
These are great recommendations. Also, does anyone have ideas for getting administrators on board? We have multiple clinics; each one has a it's own Relias admin. They face high turn over rates and time restrictions. Relias name times is put on a new admin's plate and they are not really sure what to do with it. Also, some of the admins are nurses so their time is very limited. Does anyone have experienced and improved these issues?
Tracie Bosket That's a great question, Tracie! One thing that could be helpful in this situation, is creating a "How To" PowerPoint for administrators that we load into the site as an interactive course. This could be used to automatically assign to any new Administrators in the site so that they have a better understanding of how the system works, what they are expected to do, etc.
This is a GREAT idea! I am going to start working on one now. Does anyone have any existing "How To" interactive PowerPoints like Alyssa mentioned above?
I plan to start working on one today.
By the way, for anyone who uses PowerPoint, I highly recommend signing up for Tomm Kuhlmann from Articulate's blog. He gives awesome ideas, templates and tutorials for creating engaging and creative eLearning courses. ( http://community.articulate.com ).
Thank you for the tip Tracie. I am going to check out Tomm Kuhlmann blog.
When we do large scale implementations we use a PowerPoint that I created giving the users a quick overview. (Think of it as the Welcome to the Relias Learning Management System (RLMS) extra light version.) We are lucky enough to have computer training rooms in several of our locations so we use Relias to take a break from the heavy new hire material. We use the stress free time to really sell to our clinical staff that they can get CE’s on Relias. We also use the classroom time to make sure everyone’s name is spelled correctly and I introduce myself so they know who to turn to if they ever have questions about Relias. I have found that employees who have this introduction to Relias tend to use it more than those who are just told to complete courses on their own.
As a company we are also looking at new ways to use Relias and have already successfully launched our first “fun course” where participants could win up to a $50 gift card for taking a “final exam.” We went from .064% participation on day one to 44% participation on day four. This was a great activity because anyone in any of our locations could participate and it got staff who would normally just do their required annual training in Relias and move on to spend some time in the system. It was minimal work for payout's beyond what I expected!
Oh my goodness, now that I am definitely going to speak with my team about that approach. We have the enterprise portal and we could give the fun class to the admins in the sub-portals. Maybe something like a gift card when they enroll at least of a % of their users, or a prize for the number of users that have completed courses per quarter. Now you have my wheels spinning. Thanks!
Can you tell me some about the Fun Course, what is it? And how do they win the gift card?
