Why learning is like great coffee - you need the perfect blend

Posted by Kate Carter on 21-Aug-2018 10:08:22

At Engage in Learning we all love a good cup of coffee.

While some of us need the quick fix of an instant others prefer to let their coffee brew in a perculator, allowing for the smooth flavours to develop.

Successful learning and development blends classroom, web based or eLearning as well as micro or bite-sized learning which may be videos, eBooks or short courses.

Micro learning - like instant coffee - is quick, easy to access and often innovative. It certainly has a place in modern learning and development.

Engage in Learning has partnered up with the world's largest publisher of eBooks, Bookboon, to offer clients hundreds of eBooks on soft skills, personal development and employee effectiveness.

A common mission: hands-on top-quality content

So what is bite-size learning?

Bookboon's eBooks are the epitome of bite-sized learning. Averaging at 30 to 60 pages, the eBooks provide readers with practical hands-on content that can be accessed when they want, where they want it.

Finishing an eBook only takes an hour or two, allowing time-poor employees to implement tomorrow what they've learned today.

Usability is also a big driver for Bookboon as it prides itself on being called "the Netflix of eLearning" because of the ease-of-use and accessibility of the eBooks, online and offline.

"The partnership with Engage in Learning is a no-brainer for us, given the shared mission of the two organisations around providing engaging learning that is practical and effective." - Paul Catchpole, Director Channel Sales, Bookboon

Not only do we share a mission, there's also a perfect match when it comes to the topics covered by Bookboon's library.Over 1,300 eBooks written by industry-leading experts cover everything from communication skills over leadership to the Microsoft Office suite.

Some of the highest usage rates in the digital learning industry

So would your employees actually read the eBooks?

The stats are remarkable. On average, over 40% of the employees of Bookboon's clients actively use the eLibrary to brush up on their soft skills
