Valamis Publishes a Workbook on Learning Data

The Workbook on Learning Data was created in order to help people leverage learning data to impact business initiatives.

Joensuu, Finland, 26 February 2020. Valamis, the global leader in digital learning technologies and workforce development, has published a workbook to uncover and simplify the complexities of Learning Data. The workbook is based on a workshop by Valamis’ Business Analyst Consultant Anna Khokhlova and the work of Valamis’ Lead Learning Consultant PhD Ana Gebejes.

The 2019 L&D Global Sentiment Survey asked nearly 2000 people from 92 countries around the world,“What will be hot in workplace learning in 2019?” The result of the survey ranked Personalization/Adaptive Delivery, Artificial Intelligence, and Learning Analytics as the top 3 trending topics, all topics underpinned by the importance of learning data.

The value of data for L&D can be found, for example, in making better, more personalized recommendations, in design, and above all, in measuring the impact of learning on business goals. Learning data can help in making smarter decisions when developing effective learning content, so that people spend less time learning, which leaves more time for productive work.

According to the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI)’s Capability Map that provides a global view of the skills needed to deliver modern workplace learning and development (L&D), Data Analytics is a crucial skill set. In our webinar poll that took place in December 2019, we found that 17% of the confidence issues stemmed from a basic understanding of data, with people, asking fundamental questions about data principles, such as: What does data even mean for us? Where do we start? How do we add value with data?

“L&D professionals are often not experts in utilizing data, and they don't need to be. We created this workbook to help L&D teams in answering those fundamental questions they have regarding the use of learning data. This has helped our customers to understand the possibilities data can offer, and how to ask the right questions.”
- Anna Khokhlova, Business Analyst Consultant, Valamis

The workbook helps people to answer these questions so they can use learning data to serve their team, business, and workforce development.
