OpenSesameWebinars: All right, like I said. Good morning. Good afternoon, or good evening to some of you depending on where you are. This is open, Sesame, and learn soft5 ways content. Integration impacts learner engagement. I am Crystal Osborne. I'll be kind of moderating in the back. So if you have any questions, or if your sound goes out, please feel free to leave a chat.


00:01:25.840--> 00:01:36.649

OpenSesame Webinars: Leave a question in a chat, and we'll get you taken care of, but without further ado I will turn it over to K. Sure and Page, who will be your host for the next 45 min.


00:01:36.990--> 00:01:41.389

Kishor Amberkar: Wonderful welcome, everyone. We are excited to talk about

00:01:41.520--> 00:01:50.150

Kishor Amberkar: the goal of engagement, and mainly it's related to the integration between a learning management system and your content.


00:01:50.260--> 00:01:52.109

Kishor Amberkar: and how that is going to help


00:01:52.170--> 00:02:07.669

Kishor Amberkar: the engaging of. They don't know, because at the end of the day it's all about the experience which this learners are going to have, and they can learn so that they can build their career. And in in parallel the organization development can achieve


00:02:07.800--> 00:02:12.859

Kishor Amberkar: the the AIM of the talent acquisition and the growth in the organization.


00:02:12.950--> 00:02:19.399

Kishor Amberkar: So my name is Kishor Amberkar. I'm the co-founder and currently the President and the CEO of Learnsoft


00:02:19.640--> 00:02:21.940

Kishor Amberkar: and we excited to have Page here


00:02:21.980--> 00:02:24.030

Kishor Amberkar:from open Sess Me?


00:02:24.540--> 00:02:54.529

Paige Kracke: Yes, thanks to shore. Good morning. Good afternoon, everyone. Page Cracky, senior manager of the curation team at open Sesame. So we're really focused on aligning contents to skill, development targets and talent development needs. And so I think this conversation today is going to be a really great opportunity to talk about how the content is tied to the learning management system, and how that integration can really create a powerful learning and cohesive learning experience


00:02:54.540--> 00:02:56.020

Paige Kracke: soreally excited.


00:02:56.190--> 00:03:10.600

Kishor Amberkar: Wonderful, so just the agenda for today is we. We go through to some of the slides, which explains in more detail that. How does this engagement, with the help of this integration, can help the organization?


00:03:10.630--> 00:03:20.810

Kishor Amberkar:Then we have it's an open discussion. We have the folks who can answer some somequestions on the chat towards the end we'll open it for the Q. A.


00:03:21.590--> 00:03:22.180



00:03:24.160--> 00:03:31.430

Paige Kracke: Allright. So to get us started. If for those who may not be familiar with opensesame. I'll just do a really quick


00:03:31.440--> 00:04:01.430

Paige Kracke: overview open Sesame is an online marketplace and we offer thousands of off the shelf e-learning courses and resources to fuel your training programs in addition to the power of curation in all forms that it may take. And for us that curation piece is really key when it comes to content, because we know that with thousands and thousands of resources and and learning courses often comes this sense of analysis, paralysis, and over this overwhelming.


00:04:01.440--> 00:04:14.520

Paige Kracke: Soi'll tell you what i'm doing, or for our learners. And so curation is really key as well as integration with our learning management system. Partners likelearn soft. So you'll see on this slide


00:04:14.530--> 00:04:30.089

Paige Kracke: kind of the high level overview of all of the content areas that open sesame offers. You can drill down into any of these and go really really deep. I the catalog goes deep and wide, and every a top level area a category you see here.

00:04:30.210--> 00:04:45.759

Paige Kracke: But again, that curation piece is key, and that integration pieces key. So that what you're delivering to your learners is a cohesive, guided experience that is really going to resonate, no matter where they are, and no matter what device they are accessing, training on


00:04:46.570--> 00:04:49.110

Kishor Amberkar: it back over to you for sure.


00:04:49.530--> 00:04:50.290

Kishor Amberkar: Right?


00:04:50.830--> 00:04:51.700

Kishor Amberkar: Wonderful.


00:04:51.720--> 00:04:57.249

Kishor Amberkar: So we are. Learn soft. We are a learning company, and we provide the application


00:04:57.500--> 00:05:12.190

Kishor Amberkar: well for various organizations, which is a learning management system and a current management system. But, as you know, the box of the learning and the talent doesn't functionally fit in a in a square box, it. It is so much overlap.


00:05:12.270 -->00:05:20.940

Kishor Amberkar: and what we consider ourselves as a tool which can help have the employees or the end users, or the learners to learn.


00:05:21.000--> 00:05:26.440

Kishor Amberkar: and it becomes the key important part to retain the talent in the organization.


00:05:26.680--> 00:05:31.029

Kishor Amberkar: So if you've seen from the open sesame slides and the loans off, slide


00:05:31.110--> 00:05:47.230

Kishor Amberkar: at the end of the day. What we are doing is in the simplest home is. There is a lot of content, and I consider that as a bell of knowledge which is sitting there, and I consider the loans like like a crops. We have to pass that water to the crops.


00:05:47.240--> 00:05:59.230

Kishor Amberkar: and those crops are sitting, some in the sunlight, some in the open, some in the shades. How much water they need. Each plant need a different set of quarters. Maybe only do it in the morning. So evenings


00:05:59.390--> 00:06:11.290

Kishor Amberkar: that's what we do here at once. Soft we are that engine which provides those content towards the end users, so that they can know and they can better perform in their job.


00:06:11.840--> 00:06:19.439

Kishor Amberkar: We are helping a lot of organizations, whether they are health care organizations, whether they are but local and state code.


00:06:19.840--> 00:06:26.299

Kishor Amberkar: So we cover the entire part of the learning and the talent in the it in space. That's what we do.


00:06:26.440--> 00:06:30.230

Kishor Amberkar: and we were born from a learning company. That's how we have beyond that.


00:06:32.260--> 00:06:33.020

Kishor Amberkar: So.


00:06:34.170--> 00:06:49.540

Kishor Amberkar: looking at my example that, providing this motive to the crops, the water is coming from the open Sesame well, which has a lot of content with different type of branches, but it has to be targeted to a specific place of specific individuals


00:06:49.620--> 00:06:57.789

Kishor Amberkar: in the organizations. Some are sitting in noticing some of you sitting in in it. Some are sitting in in. In, in accounting


00:06:57.830--> 00:07:10.939

Kishor Amberkar: not everybody needs the same content, and even when it has been delivered is different. They are a new higher orientation program, which happens only at the time of new hires, maybe at the time of Rehires.


00:07:10.990--> 00:07:18.039

Kishor Amberkar: or maybe there is a quarterly or a yearly of a performance review where I have to send certain content to them.


00:07:18.620--> 00:07:25.950

Kishor Amerkar: It becomes a part of your talent growth. So that's a As an individual. I canplan my career around this.


00:07:26.190--> 00:07:28.210

Kishor Amberkar: so any anyone can alone.


00:07:28.460--> 00:07:30.350

Kishor Amberkar: but maybe not on the same day.


00:07:30.810--> 00:07:32.840

Kishor Amberkar: or maybe not in the same way.


00:07:32.940--> 00:07:35.609

Kishor Amberkar: because the training modes are different.


00:07:35.880--> 00:07:47.229

Kishor Amberkar: Some are you learning related things, Some of the Webinar related things. Some are checklist related things. Some are. Its which we call as an instructor that training base. But at the end of the day


00:07:47.250--> 00:07:50.290

Kishor Amberkar: it gives you the power as a blended loan.


00:07:51.290--> 00:07:51.960

Kishor Amberkar: Okay.


00:07:52.560--> 00:07:56.230

Kishor Amberkar: now, we are going to talk today mainly on


00:07:57.140--> 00:07:58.370

Kishor Amberkar: the 5


00:07:58.890--> 00:07:59.970

Kishor Amberkar:Points

00:08:00.000--> 00:08:02.319

Kishor Amberkar: which can help employee.


00:08:02.620--> 00:08:04.530

Kishor Amberkar: Oh, on a low note


00:08:05.140--> 00:08:06.770

Kishor Amberkar: their engagement better.


00:08:07.330--> 00:08:10.119

Kishor Amberkar: The first and the most important point.


00:08:10.230--> 00:08:12.189

Kishor Amberkar: We need to make it simple.


00:08:13.010--> 00:08:14.829

Kishor Amberkar: We want one door entry.


00:08:15.090--> 00:08:20.220

Kishor Amberkar: We do not want the learner to get confused, or what content I am needing.


00:08:20.310--> 00:08:26.500

Kishor Amberkar: If I'm. In the specific position in the job or in the job, what type of content is needed to me.


00:08:26.760--> 00:08:27.830

Kishor Amberkar: I don't know.


00:08:28.110--> 00:08:33.209

Kishor Amberkar: Send that information to me rather than me, finding that information.


00:08:33.710--> 00:08:36.179

Kishor Amberkar: So we wanted to reduce


00:08:36.289--> 00:08:37.740

Kishor Amberkar: the loaning Cove


00:08:38.059--> 00:08:45.030

Kishor Amberkar: and make it simple. There are multiple advantage of doing that, not just at the lower level, but at the back end level.


00:08:45.290--> 00:09:01.470

Kishor Amberkar: because all we don't want the admins to start moving things around right, getting the data from multiple sources, having having the the completion data going back and forth. That will be lot of integration which can be creating problems.


00:09:01.900--> 00:09:12.880

Kishor Amberkar:Let the connection let the integration between an Lms and and the content thatsmart integration, let that take over and help the end. User


00:09:13.230--> 00:09:16.489

Kishor Amberkar: So the end user just have to look at. One thing


00:09:16.900--> 00:09:19.950

Kishor Amberkar: is, give me my dashboard. What is coming.


00:09:20.020--> 00:09:21.090

Kishor Amberkar: what is due?


00:09:21.190--> 00:09:28.909

Kishor Amberkar: You see that hand stop side. Something is due or past. You can be right away on the full screen. I don't have to go and find that out.


00:09:29.780--> 00:09:37.400

Kishor Amberkar: Give me the certifications which are awarded. Give me the courses which are coming from this content. Let's give all those things on the full screen


00:09:37.880--> 00:09:41.959

Kishor Amberkar: and on the content side. Also we want to keep it simple, right, Page.


00:09:42.990--> 00:09:46.929

Paige Kracke: Absolutely. So. I'd say. This one is probably the most


00:09:46.940--> 00:10:14.170

Paige Kracke: that this resonates the most strongly with me here at open sesame as far as our methodology, when it comes to content and content curation, and also just the way that we think about our integrations with a learning management system like learn soft. We want the content Access point to be as easy and as few barriers to entry as possible. The more clicks you have in between the point of


00:10:14.180--> 00:10:43.109

Paige Kracke: delivery at the point of actually accessing content. The more people you're going to lose, and the fewer people who are going to come back, because today a click that's a barrier. That's a barrier like each click, each page, each tab, Each window that opens is a barrier to entry. So the whole goal with open sesame is to curate on the front end, and then we deliver the content right into the space where the learners are already going where they already know, so that there's 0. Or


00:10:43.120--> 00:10:48.120

Paige Kracke: you know, we would be minimize that friction because that friction today


00:10:48.140--> 00:10:54.749

Paige Kracke: it's not gonna fly when people are used to these, you know modern modern solutions and every other aspect of their lives.


00:10:54.760--> 00:11:11.500

Paige Kracke: learning cannot afford to fall behind in this way. So I think that the simplicity as simple as you can be that's going to be where you're going to see the most pay off in the long run when it comes to adoption when it comes to engagement, and when it comes to retaining that engagement over time


00:11:11.870--> 00:11:15.880

Kishor Amberkar: absolutely, and you know that's what we do here that you on soft, you know, single click.


00:11:15.930--> 00:11:21.119

Kishor Amberkar: right from the email. You can launch student courses. You don't even see your learning management system.


00:11:21.270--> 00:11:27.120

Kishor Amberkar: Couple of Our clients call our application as a casper the friendly ghost. It's always hidden.


00:11:27.360--> 00:11:33.609

Kishor Amberkar: but once it comes once it comes in the front, it will do its job, and it's very, very friendly.


00:11:34.060--> 00:11:46.419

Kishor Amberkar: and that's what we want you to do, because organization, 98 of your users are end users. They do not need the sophistication of a learning management system, or even the content.


00:11:46.430--> 00:11:58.019

Kishor Amberkar: I just want to complete my courses. But we wanted to make that exciting. We wanted to make that engaging so that they can loan more, and they can apply whatever they have done in the job.


00:11:58.070--> 00:12:03.870

Kishor Amberkar: So that's the one of the most full step needs to reduce your learning, go.


00:12:04.010--> 00:12:14.049

Kishor Amberkar: and the integration between a content and an Lms that connect to let that do all the hardware. But for the end. User it's one click


00:12:14.830--> 00:12:16.130

Paige Kracke: absolutely.


00:12:16.270--> 00:12:26.649

Kishor Amberkar: I love that half for the friendly guest. That's that's phenomenal it's it's all given from my client. So so that's how how they look at our learning management system.


00:12:26.760--> 00:12:30.070

Kishor Amberkar:Now, having that as your first step to reduce


00:12:30.470--> 00:12:48.250

Kishor Amberkar: that actually boost the performance and onboarding process, you know most of the organizations which we deal with, whether it's a small regulatory organizations like the health care or even the government. There is a lot of on booting process and onboarding process changes


00:12:48.670--> 00:13:01.220

Kishor Amberkar: from department to department. If I'm. In the clinical, it's a little different from what i'm sitting in in in a transportation for for a government agency. Right? And on boarding programs have shown.


00:13:01.470--> 00:13:12.820

Kishor Amberkar: improve in the productivity, and that's how the individual, when they come to the organization they learn and they want the organization to tell them that they really care for their learning.


00:13:13.210--> 00:13:14.919

Kishor Amberkar: Now, this integration


00:13:15.030--> 00:13:16.200

Kishor Amberkar: between


00:13:16.280--> 00:13:20.569

Kishor Amberkar: the the Lms and the content can really help them


00:13:20.680--> 00:13:22.710

Kishor Amberkar: to to do this point Number 2.


00:13:23.020--> 00:13:26.059

Kishor Amberkar: This is one of our one door entry page.


00:13:26.120--> 00:13:31.900

Kishor Amberkar: where, if it's a single sign on, I don't have to remember 4 different usernames and password.


00:13:31.940--> 00:13:36.680

Kishor Amberkar: I don't have to remember that I have to go to another side to to launch my content.


00:13:36.690--> 00:14:03.150

Kishor Amberkar: Let it be one door, and doesn't matter whether I am on or a clinical stuff or anon-clinical stuff. Everybody in the organization go through this one dole, and depending upon who I am, and we do integrate with the atms of the words, like the both days and the people soft of the world. So we know who you are, and depending upon who you are, and with help of our connect one and the integration with the content with open sess. Me, we can now give you


00:14:03.160--> 00:14:10.880

Kishor Amberkar: feature articles, featured courses, suggestions, those can automatically be there on the page Number one.


00:14:11.210--> 00:14:12.920

Kishor Amberkar: I don't have to go and find out.


00:14:13.360--> 00:14:22.689

Kishor Amberkar: So this number 2 of of making sure that we we boost the loner's performance and fast becomes a key


00:14:23.770--> 00:14:42.130

Paige Kracke: absolutely, and I think, for onboarding. Specifically, this is really critical, because it's the first experience that your learners are going to have with the system. It's their first time interacting with the content with the platform, with the entire learning, experience, and ecosystem.


00:14:42.140--> 00:14:52.780

Paige Kracke: So it's the arguably the most critical to get right the first time around to make sure you're showing. Folks things are content that is relevant to them


00:14:52.880--> 00:15:21.849

Paige Kracke: where they are, especially when it comes to compliance. This is really important. I don't want to see a course on this on, you know a requirement from a state that I am not in them is not relevant to me if it's not necessary, and it's not essential for me to successfully do my job and perform my duties. So I think that this is something where, really adding that additional level of kind of human curation at the front end pays off in the long run, because


00:15:22.430--> 00:15:38.650

Paige Kracke: if they're not, if they're not happy. If people aren't satisfied on the first time, this is going to be the highest drop off rate that you get when it comes to people being excited to come back. So I think that the onboarding is a really good time to put your best foot forward.


00:15:38.900--> 00:15:53.319

Paige Kracke: Curate. Some amazing content, relevant content, guided learning journeys, and and of course, those additional kind of tailored suggestions based on learner personas. So this is a really a really key piece as well.



00:15:55.080--> 00:15:59.769

Kishor Amberkar:Let's let's take that one and 2, and now take it to the number 3


00:15:59.810--> 00:16:17.649

Kishor Amberkar: right. We have to create this effective learning programs which spoke about the onboarding. But it's there are multiple in the entire journey from from me to higher from the my career growth every time, every every every quarter, every year.


00:16:17.660--> 00:16:22.869

Kishor Amberkar: We need to provide some program for the career grow. You know it's. It's as simple as


00:16:23.080--> 00:16:25.230

Kishor Amberkar: when I do a driving license test.


00:16:25.260--> 00:16:32.290

Kishor Amberkar: Right? Does it make me a good driver? Probably not until I drive every day


00:16:32.410--> 00:16:39.959

Kishor Amberkar: as I drive every day. My my skills are getting polished, so that eventually I become a wonderful driver.


00:16:39.970--> 00:16:54.760

Kishor Amberkar: Right so in the same way, in the learning, just because we have a fantastic onboarding program doesn't satisfy during the entire life cycle of the employment we have to provide those things. And the learning programs come in.


00:16:54.770--> 00:17:08.719

Kishor Amberkar: and that actually adds in the satisfaction of of an of a learner or an employee, so that I can stay in in the organization for a lot more time, because the organization is spending some time on me, and in my growth


00:17:08.940--> 00:17:18.130

Kishor Amberkar: and every bit and pieces, whether it's a record of requirements of a certifications like American Heart Association does, or anything related to


00:17:18.140--> 00:17:29.990

Kishor Amberkar: to a organization, specific certifications. Those all can be combined using the content, and gets delivered through a learning management system with a smart delivery mechanism.


00:17:30.030--> 00:17:49.749

Kishor Amberkar: right? Whether it's an you know, a recurring base or one time base, whether it's targeted to certain job classes, chopped code job positions, the timing, whether it's a one year recording 2, your recurring 3 year recurring those things can be done so which can provide a continuous flow of education to the employees.


00:17:51.230--> 00:18:09.690

Kishor Amberkar: That's how we we we provide to the because there are various ways of learning, whether they are active or a passive ways with. But what we wanted to do in the organization development at least provide some tools. So so the Hr folks in the organization can bring a learning culture


00:18:10.410 -->00:18:12.430

Kishor Amberkar:for every employee.


00:18:15.860--> 00:18:17.140

Kishor Amberkar: What do you think, Page?


00:18:17.900--> 00:18:22.470

Kishor Amberkar: Even on the open sesame side there are ways to to to


00:18:22.480--> 00:18:52.440

Paige Kracke: curate, to the content which can be targeted on the specific timeframes, right? Absolutely. And I was actually gonna bring up. This reminds me of. We have some publishers that we work with content providers who focus their their trading methodology around models. I'm sure some people are familiar with the 72,010learning model where 70 of your learning is happening actually on on the job through experiential learning, and then 20% through interactions with with others.


00:18:52.450--> 00:19:00.710

Paige Kracke: And then 10 actually through that formal facilitated learning session or e-learning session. So there's they're actually


00:19:00.720--> 00:19:30.709

Paige Kracke: content. Objects that employ this model so there's a part of it. That's that formal learning. And then there's additional resources to take that learning on the go to apply that learning on your on the job in your role. So I think that there's there are certainly ways to leverage off the shelf resources. And then also, you can kind of create this experience where we're applying learning. You can build that into the learning management system as well into you.


00:19:30.720--> 00:19:52.080

Paige Kracke: It's kind of delivery and scheduled releases of content into development programs. I've seen this done really effectively with leadership development programs where we have the content which is, hey, watch this course, go through the go through the motions, and then a guy, a session, or an in kind of


00:19:52.090--> 00:20:18.749

Paige Kracke: maybe a a proctored reviewed experience where this person may be applying that learning on in their role, so it's really important, and it's certainly possible to leverage off the shelf training. To do just this, or as part of this broader kind of process of getting folks to apply learning and then return for kind of the a continued, a continual approach.


00:20:19.350--> 00:20:24.219

Kishor Amberkar: That's actually the point number for which is the collaboration part of it


00:20:24.710--> 00:20:41.430

Kishor Amberkar: right? The the collaboration part of it comes from the content from the open session. The learning management system starts deploying that. But at the same time the loner needs some months right. Whether I am integrated with teams or slack


00:20:41.440--> 00:21:00.190

Kishor Amberkar: where I can talk to the instructors, or I talk to the fellow attendees who areattending the same type of calls. How do I bounce ideas? So that because thesocial side aspect of learning right, we wanted to make sure that all of thosethings can come and combine, and becomes a blended learning.


00:21:00.480--> 00:21:12.560

Kishor Amberkar: So whether it's the e-learning portion of it, whether it's a checklist what we call as a procter base, learning or maybe maybe it's just an assessment on the evaluations which comes on top of that.


00:21:12.640--> 00:21:29.830

Kishor Amberkar: All these systems have to talk to each other. That integration becomes the key success of an outcome of a project or a task in this scenario. It can also bean outcome of my career as an as as an employee how i'm going step by step.


00:21:30.030--> 00:21:36.520

Kishor Amberkar: How does outcomes? And that becomes a very important part about the collaboration? So here in learnsoft


00:21:36.580--> 00:21:39.700

Kishor Amberkar: there are various learning moves which we have.

00:21:39.820--> 00:21:59.010

Kishor Amberkar: whether they are instructing their trainings, whether they are the Webinar trainings, whether they are the e-learning side of the trainings, or whether it's with event-based trainings, whether whether it's a checklist space trainings, all those trainings are can be attached what we call as a learning object which can be deployed out


00:21:59.020--> 00:22:01.750

Kishor Amberkar: to any part of your organization.


00:22:01.890--> 00:22:03.500

Kishor Amberkar: Okay. So


00:22:03.600--> 00:22:13.779

Kishor Amberkar: I'm. Showing some of some of the screenshots which has a different modes which can be attached to the learner's task where they can do it, they can launch it. You can attach certain dates associated to it.


00:22:14.260--> 00:22:19.120

Kishor Amberkar: So this part of the number 4 becomes a key important important aspect


00:22:19.130--> 00:22:40.099

Kishor Amberkar: of an engagement, because it is not just one where you can bank on. It has to be a combination of a content learning management system. We obviously deploy this using the connector, but there has to be teams integration. There has to be integration with your time keeping system. And obviously the one of the major one here. It's the fcm.


00:22:40.200--> 00:22:52.479

Kishor Amberkar: It it has to integrate with your, you know, Hri, a system. So if I change certain job class and job positions. I can be moved, or the training can be targeted


00:22:52.780--> 00:22:54.439

Kishor Amberkar: specifically to me.


00:22:55.540--> 00:23:24.359

Paige Kracke: absolutely. And I think that this is where you can really get creative when it comes to this collaboration piece with the content that you're selecting and the reasoning and kind of the why, behind those content selections it open Sesame. We've seen some really successful content rollouts where the content is specifically designed to spark conversation in a specific way. So maybe it's not your annual compliance course that you have to take.


00:23:24.370--> 00:23:38.079

Paige Kracke: Maybe it's something a little bit more kind of real tied to current events tied to current feelings. We have tons of really phenomenal mental health and well-being content that I think kind of


00:23:38.220--> 00:23:43.570

Paige Kracke: facilitates this feeling of that connection just inherently, and


00:23:43.830--> 00:23:55.869

Paige Kracke: promotes this idea, that hey? We're starting a conversation. Maybe this is a micro learning course that we're watching in preparation for an actual in-person conversation maybe we're rolling out


00:23:56.110--> 00:24:26.099

Paige Kracke: a book summary course that's kind of sparking ideas, and that's the purpose rather than you know the compliance, the things that we must do when you combine those things effectively. It really creates an experience that people want to talk about, and that people do talk about, because I've also seen on the flip side. Some Some attempts at this. But when you're trying to get people to talk about their ethics and code of conduct, course it can be a little bit trickier to pull that


00:24:26.110--> 00:24:45.099

Paige Kracke: that that really fruitful discussion out of the out of the woodwork. So I think that the content curation here can be a major major component when it comes to trying to gather or get facilitate these conversations and these authentic conversations between your learners.


00:24:46.840--> 00:24:52.309

Kishor Amberkar: So we did all the homework we did. All the bases are covered.


00:24:52.590--> 00:24:55.510

Kishor Amberkar: but the fifth one, which is the most important part

00:24:55.930--> 00:25:06.390

Kishor Amberkar: that we we found the content we curated the content for our audience. We made sure that it is been uploaded into the learning management system gets deployed


00:25:06.400--> 00:25:25.539

Kishor Amberkar: to a specific zone specific target specific times. We did all that. We did, also the collaborations with with the other part of of of the Enterprise Stack, whether it is teams or slacks, or it Cms. We did all those things, so the learners are all engaged. It's easy. One click base.


00:25:25.750--> 00:25:28.820

Kishor Amberkar: Now we want to find out the results. How did it win?


00:25:28.950--> 00:25:34.070

Kishor Amberkar: Right? I I just deployed this learning path for for my organization.


00:25:34.320--> 00:25:36.149

Kishor Amberkar: How did it really help?


00:25:36.350--> 00:25:49.329

Kishor Amberkar: Are we doing some type of management impact module? I'll be doing some K patricklevel of of of evaluation, so that whatever we learn, is it really helping at my job?


00:25:49.590--> 00:26:02.349

Kishor Amberkar: Let's find that out, and that is the point Number 5. Let's now measure it. Let's measure what what this learning and development programs which we created. Was it really helpful.


00:26:02.360--> 00:26:24.510

Kishor Amberkar: and that becomes the key part of the learning management system and the connector which we have with the content, because we do receive the data from the content and doesn't matter what type of technology we are talking about, right, whether it's a call or I, CC. Or the good setting can let the connector worry about all those fancy words I want to results. I want to find out


00:26:24.520--> 00:26:26.979

Kishor Amberkar: that really it helped or not, so that

00:26:27.270--> 00:26:31.310

Kishor Amberkar: the reason why I want to find that out is so that I can take some actions.


00:26:31.460--> 00:26:41.679

Kishor Amberkar: Maybe it didn't work correctly. Maybe I need to tweak you a little bit. Maybe I need to add some extra content, or maybe there was a content overload. Let me minimize it a little bit.


00:26:41.790--> 00:26:51.959

Kishor Amberkar: depending upon my audience. Obviously because some people, maybe in the it will take the content in a different way. The clinical stuff might take it in a different way. Let me customize


00:26:51.980--> 00:26:53.490

Kishor Amberkar:or let me adapt


00:26:54.030--> 00:27:00.209

Kishor Amberkar:this entire program. But I can't just make that decision without without actually seeing what happened.


00:27:00.230--> 00:27:02.339

Kishor Amberkar: and that is on number 4.


00:27:02.440--> 00:27:21.790

Kishor Amberkar: So i'd learn soft here. We can provide number of reports whether the custom reports, whether they are scheduled reports, or maybe they are a fancy dashboard, right? Which can give me the information and not just at the users level. Here. Now we are talking about an admin or a manager level, so that we can make people accountable.


00:27:21.930--> 00:27:35.499

Kishor Amberkar: We can make sure that the manager, who there are 10 people, reports to him. He is on the top saying that who did complete what was the interaction? What can we make make specific evaluations on that?


00:27:35.590--> 00:27:37.299

Kishor Amberkar:So here, at the end of


00:27:37.680--> 00:27:40.480

Kishor Amberkar: to voting is one of the biggest


00:27:40.540--> 00:27:44.220

Kishor Amberkar: plus, or we shine in that more.


00:27:44.360--> 00:28:00.400

Kishor Amberkar: because that's where it it gives the leaders the the enough information to change, and it's a iteration because it's continuously changing. With this Covid world the world has totally changed. We have to adapt those things


00:28:00.430--> 00:28:02.450

Kishor Amberkar: and learn soft helps in that


00:28:03.560--> 00:28:11.720

Paige Kracke:absolutely, I mean, can you imagine some of the the differences in the contentthat we're looking for today compared to


00:28:11.810--> 00:28:31.699

Paige Kracke: 18-24 months ago. There's so much new content. There's so many new global factors at play that are impacting the way that we are recommending content the way that we're delivering content to this new remote, hybrid post pandemic workplace.


00:28:31.950--> 00:29:00.559

Paige Kracke: That is really it's Just if you're not adapting and iterating constantly, then you're falling behind so this is a look at open Sesame's insights again. These are all going to flow into the learn soft system as well, but ours are available, and they really focus on the content piece. So things like most utilized courses, average completion percentages.


00:29:00.570--> 00:29:04.210

Paige Kracke: average number of enrolled courses.


00:29:04.220--> 00:29:33.519

Paige Kracke: And then your total enrollments versus completions. So lots of different information that you can use. And we'll typically use this to kind of identify where one specific course or a set of courses might not be hitting the mark. And what is working, what stylistic elements of content are resonating with my learners what modalities, what delivery platforms are, or delivery kind of systems are working when it comes to content.


00:29:33.530--> 00:29:35.219

Paige Kracke: and we can do that.


00:29:35.360--> 00:29:49.979

Paige Kracke: and and look at this information really as much as as our learning. Administrative partners are willing to, because I think it's super important to continually look at this data and use it to adapt your program over time.


00:29:50.990--> 00:29:51.790

Kishor Amberkar: Wonderful.


00:29:52.090--> 00:29:55.370

Kishor Amberkar: So we talked about all those 5 points. Right?


00:29:55.450--> 00:29:58.390

Kishor Amberkar: So what what is going to Google to help you?


00:29:59.320--> 00:30:03.980

Kishor Amberkar: Because ideally there is no perfect solution. Right? It has to be changed.


00:30:04.020--> 00:30:06.819

Kishor Amberkar: Every organization have its own culture.


00:30:06.860--> 00:30:09.520

Kishor Amberkar: phone training, deployment.

00:30:09.730--> 00:30:11.610

Kishor Amberkar: every position.


00:30:11.810--> 00:30:17.559

Kishor Amberkar: whether I I always talk about the health care side of it. But it is different.


00:30:17.800--> 00:30:30.839

Kishor Amberkar: The paying which is deployed for the transportation agency is not the same. What health care does right? Even the modes are different, and the way it is being adapted is different or consumed, is different.


00:30:31.370--> 00:30:34.080

Kishor Amberkar: But we wanted to make sure that this integration.


00:30:34.210--> 00:30:45.549

Kishor Amberkar: which is a happy marriage between the content and the Lms, is so seamless, and let it that do all the all the big word behind the scene, so that the end user


00:30:45.800--> 00:30:46.740

Kishor Amberkar: doesn't


00:30:47.000--> 00:30:49.970

Kishor Amberkar: feel that it's very simple for them.


00:30:50.960--> 00:30:56.200

Kishor Amberkar: It's a thoughtful approach, you know, to actually plan this training initiative.


00:30:56.380--> 00:30:59.060

Kishor Amberkar: We move all the barriers which we have.


00:30:59.550--> 00:31:02.280

Kishor Amberkar: having one AIM to motivate the


00:31:02.560--> 00:31:04.549

Kishor Amberkar: so that they can learn fast.


00:31:04.870--> 00:31:07.150

Kishor Amberkar: Their tools are right in front of them.


00:31:07.490--> 00:31:09.299

Kishor Amberkar: right. They can engage

00:31:09.590--> 00:31:18.699

Kishor Amberkar: between between the other attendees or the instructors, or anyone in the organization. So if there is any help needed, it's right there in the platform.


00:31:19.280--> 00:31:20.700

Kishor Amberkar: right? So

00:31:21.080--> 00:31:24.090

Kishor Amberkar: we wanted to focus


00:31:24.180--> 00:31:25.100

Kishor Amberkar: noon


00:31:26.160--> 00:31:27.240

Kishor Amberkar: and let


00:31:27.620--> 00:31:31.290

Kishor Amberkar: the systems like learn software like open sesame


00:31:32.150--> 00:31:35.439

Kishor Amberkar: integrated. So the engagement becomes powerful.


00:31:43.000--> 00:31:46.449

Kishor Amberkar: So these are some of the resources which we have


00:31:46.480 -->00:31:54.109

Kishor Amberkar: There's a lot more on our website. Lots of website and open sesame website, which which which can be a resources.


00:31:54.400--> 00:32:01.569

Kishor Amberkar: There's an entire list of open sesame courses which you can, you know. Justlook at those from from the website


00:32:05.210--> 00:32:08.319

Kishor Amberkar: again. Thank you for joining us, and we are open for


00:32:08.620--> 00:32:10.269

Kishor Amberkar: the questions and answers


00:32:11.150--> 00:32:24.000

Paige Kracke: excellent, and it looks like we have one question on the Q. A. Is there a technical requirement for Lms to connect or to for the Lms. To content integration?


00:32:24.600--> 00:32:27.679

Kishor Amberkar: That's a beauty about what we do here at?


00:32:27.820--> 00:32:30.079

Kishor Amberkar: Obviously in the e-learning space.


00:32:30.540--> 00:32:31.770

Kishor Amberkar: this this call


00:32:31.840--> 00:32:40.909

Kishor Amberkar: 1.1 point, 1.2, 2,004. Then we have a Icc. Now, a couple of years ago the thin Can came up. The X Api came.


00:32:41.490--> 00:32:50.390

Kishor Amberkar: Historically. There was a like Lti, which is typically used for the machinery type of of learning that it sends the data like a mannequins and all those things


00:32:50.660--> 00:32:52.539

Kishor Amberkar: the technology doesn't matter.


00:32:53.250--> 00:32:56.069

Kishor Amberkar: We have done custom integrations also.


00:32:56.190--> 00:32:58.280

Kishor Amberkar: as it also, but mostly


00:32:58.530--> 00:32:59.999

Kishor Amberkar: with open sesame


00:33:00.060--> 00:33:07.909

Kishor Amberkar: they are all standards. Come a. Icc. Or X Api base integration. So it becomes a seamless for us.


00:33:08.290--> 00:33:12.810

Kishor Amberkar: So that's the technology behind. But but the technology doesn't matter.


00:33:13.090--> 00:33:15.999

Kishor Amberkar: As we said, we can do a custom integration all


00:33:18.480--> 00:33:19.620

Paige Kracke: excellent


00:33:20.760--> 00:33:29.530

Paige Kracke: andand 1 one other question. Can any third party content be uploaded. Is there anoption for bulk upload?


00:33:29.570--> 00:33:31.800

Paige Kracke: And what about content updates?


00:33:31.990--> 00:33:33.310

Kishor Amberkar: Wonderful.

00:33:33.370--> 00:33:42.350

Kishor Amberkar: That's a very key key question, because it's becomes very important that all the fresh content is always in front of front of the end, user


00:33:42.360--> 00:33:56.130

Kishor Amberkar: and at the same time we have to make sure that there is a version controlling, because if I took a sexual harassment codes 2 years ago, and there was a slight number 5 in that. I want to make sure for audit purposes that it is still there.


00:33:56.750--> 00:33:57.560

Kishor Amberkar: So


00:33:57.950--> 00:34:01.250

Kishor Amberkar: to answer this question is absolutely


00:34:01.340--> 00:34:10.650

Kishor Amberkar: there. Is. You can upload any type of content into the learning management system, this call any Icc will be better, or that team can, so that you'd be constructable


00:34:11.110--> 00:34:16.900

Kishor Amberkar: there isn't bolts coma global. But the beauty about the integration with over, says me is.


00:34:16.920--> 00:34:19.020

Kishor Amberkar: we talk Api to Api.


00:34:19.489--> 00:34:22.799

Kishor Amberkar: That means there is a deeper api integration.


00:34:22.830--> 00:34:37.300

Kishor Amberkar: If there is any change in the content, learn software Api's can talk to the Apis from from open Sesame, and in the back end all those parts are done. So when the end user clicks on that the launch button


00:34:37.620--> 00:34:40.130

Kishor Amberkar:he will get a refresher course.


00:34:40.670--> 00:34:42.830

Kishor Amberkar: So that is all in place.


00:34:45.940 -->00:34:51.630

Paige Kracke: Excellent. And let's see a couple of more questions coming in. The Q. A.


00:34:53.150--> 00:35:06.160

Paige Kracke: Okay. How would, When would access be in an open sesame with the currentcompany using? Learn soft? So that would be a question. We, if you wouldn'tmind. I think that our


00:35:06.370--> 00:35:28.569

Paige Kracke: our contact info is on this slide. We can definitely chat more about setting up the integration. It is a separate, you know we're we're integrated together. But open Sesame is a separate separate product, the content side. So that would be something that we need to to set up. And you know basically great access to that, the catalogue of content.


00:35:29.150--> 00:35:34.709

Paige Kracke: Andthen one last question, what types of reporting is available?


00:35:35.950--> 00:35:41.049

Kishor Amberkar: There are multiple types of reports coming through from the loans of Lms.


00:35:41.420--> 00:35:47.429

Kishor Amberkar: Some of the reports, like the e-learning reports, are actually feeded from content.


00:35:47.920--> 00:36:03.720

Kishor Amberkar: Open Sesame provides that this is common related Cmi calls, or whether it's any Icc related calls or any interaction related, calls for the assessment which comes from this Com. Any Icc. Those are the standard reports which are e-learning, they support.


00:36:03.730--> 00:36:28.099

Kishor Amberkar: But there are a bunch of reports which are just the learning management system reports like the completion to port. The delinquent reports, the lost to reports. If there are any checklist related reports or a competency base, related folks, those are all coming through the ones of the Lms. So we are getting the data from open Sess me on the real time, which will be feeded back to, to, to the, to, the, to the organizations


00:36:28.330--> 00:36:32.740

Kishor Amberkar: and the reports are broken down into various groups, and users


00:36:32.820--> 00:36:51.499

Kishor Amberkar: maybe have to just see their transcripts and the finals schools, but the manager needs need a little bit more. But the admins as a page was just mentioning that the admin needs those, those, those, those, those reports, that which course is heavily used, which courses was. Was not that popular


00:36:51.630--> 00:36:56.990
