Recommendations for production workers and machine competency courses
Jul 23, 2019
Hi, folks. I'd appreciate any input on this subject.
We recently moved to a new LMS and are bringing more departments on board. Our production group wants to make courses for about 80 machine competency modules. I'm finding this more than a little daunting, and I think it's going to be cumbersome for the admin and very boring for the learner.
So far what we've got in a (Rise) course is three sections: theory, practice and demonstration. There will be links to the resource documents housed outside of the LMS. Here's an example: https://rise.articulate.com/share/3ll0a6Szm0LzIdmm4Jj5michxH9K9f-w
For one job, someone might need to take 8 courses to check out on 8 machines before they can be on their own. Another job might be 10 other machines. It seems very cumbersome to have to enroll someone in 8 courses when the course is just a couple checklists with links. I'm trying to get the SMEs to at least group these together into "tracks" so there's less for the admin to manage and maybe less confusing to the learner.
I think my bottom line is this doesn't feel like a course. It feels like they're using the LMS in lieu of manual tracking of completion of these steps. I suppose that's fine, but it's tripling the size of my content for a small department. I don't know why, but that concerns me.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you!
