The SyN Learning Institute’s comprehensive online training center,Speakersyouneed. enterclassroom.com, features three web-based learning formats: live virtual training seminars, virtual classroom “space” and an online bookstore, mapped out within one easy-to-use website.
“Our CEO, Rocky White, envisioned a user-friendly, interactive site where our customers could customize training to their exact needs,” says project manager Chaunia Chandler. “This one site will deliver all training media, activities, training and resources in a format that best meets our clients’ needs.”
Website developer, programmer and educator Eric Nietzke worked with SyN to create the new website. “Speakers you Need wanted something more inviting and lively than a traditional educational site. Not only did we achieve a less institutional feel, we organized the content in a way that is easy to locate and simple to access and navigate,” says Nietzke, pointing out several design tools that allow a client to see exactly where they’ve been on the site and where they should go next.
“To start, we are targeting thirty-six topics that we continue to hear are a priority for our clients, all HRCI/SHRM certified,” says White. “But we will continue to grow SyN’s learning library on a daily basis.” He emphasizes that the SyN model remains being a partner in learning, not moving in and taking over the function. “Our number one job as a learning partner is not to talk or teach, but to listen. We’re intent on discovering the problems, the needs and the priorities of our clients and then designing a learning solution that meets those needs, furthers the mission and grows the bottom line. Speakersyouneed.enterclassroom.com reveals what we’ve already heard and takes the solution to the next level, delivering it within one contained space.”
Speakersyouneed.enterclassroom.com is built for everyone: HR professionals who want a learning partner for their training function, individuals within companies seeking training for themselves or a team, as well as people on their own looking for strategic, cost-effective ongoing educational opportunities.
A sample interaction might go like this: a company needs business acumen training for its non-financial managers. An HR representative or the employee (s) needing the training can preview the various training sessions available. The training sessions can be customized to the company, with title and logo space available. Participants create an account, choose the desired sessions, complete the video and workbook and any assignments, possibly participate in live chat and then receive strategic business credit upon completion of the course. Students and managers are able to chart progress throughout all the training sessions. While still in the virtual classroom, students can purchase related books or other material via the online bookstore.
As human resource functions become more strategic and accountable to an organization’s numbers and metrics, they must employ best-in-class practices, which includes outsourcing the learning function. Speakersyouneed.enterclassroom.com just moved to the front of the class.
