What You'll Learn in This Chapter:
LMS/LXP alternatives go a step further. They break knowledge out of the course box and bring it into the real world. They offer knowledge in the flow of work. Their AI engine reads, watches, and listens to tacit knowledge, videos, PDFs, and more to get the answer to a question in the flow of work. They empower the user to learn in the middle of their work and help them to retain that knowledge better. They include an open feedback loop to help measure the effectiveness of the information and use Natural Language Processing to get the right answer at the right time.
Have answers to employees’ questions in the palm of their hand as they work.
