In the last 30 years, software has zoomed from solving math problems to writing newspaper op-eds and works of fiction. Yet, learning at workplaces is still stuck half a century behind. Companies are spending tens of billions of dollars trying to replicate the "classroom", with video based lectures and certifications, and with no ways of measuring outcomes. Why do companies not adapt with time and technological advances? Because in an ambiguous world and time, companies like the comfort of having some constants and thus find it difficult to overcome the inertia that is instruction based training. As a result, employees learn inefficiently and over time stop learning continuously as they don't see the impact of learning on their careers.
At Linear, we are trying to transform workplace learning, with a personalized platform focused on increasing learning outcomes like retention and application, using gamification and machine learning. Unlike the alternatives, we deliver a fun and active learning experience without long boring video lectures and irrelevant certifications. And we measure the outcomes too!
