How to develop professional digital training for Music Classes?

Written by SeekLMS Correspondent on 16 December 2021

The first confinement caused immeasurable joy in the EdTech networks, it was to announce the great victory of e-Learning. However, the reality was quite different. The urgency of digitizing content has given rise to “troubleshooting” e-Learning, produced with the means at hand and in a too often limited time. Zoom anti-educational conferences lasting several hours have multiplied, trying as best they can to be the replica of face-to-face training.

The Zoomification of digital training

Reproducing face-to-face distance learning gives a bad image of e-Learning. The result offers a format that is too top-down and without any interactivity, very far from efficient and humanized e-Learning. To overcome this, it is necessary to define the objective of the training, different from the educational objective. Then, it is essential to insist on the training courseBlended Learning is for example an excellent solution.

You don't have to want to switch everything to e-learning. At Callimedia, we even think it's counterproductive. However, our core business could lead one to believe the opposite. Take the example of nursing assistants, or chemists who need to learn an analytical technique. On-the-job training is necessary, it would not be optimal pedagogically speaking to try to force distance training.

The real revolution of e-Learning 

The image of e-Learning where you have launched alone on a platform with resources persists. The facts that followed the onset of the crisis did not help this impression. We must now be careful of the contrarian because many learners have had the experience of " bad e-Learning  ". Despite everything, awareness has awakened to the usefulness and strength of digital training. We now know that the real revolution of e-Learning lies in educational construction. It is our duty to use our experience to offer quality training and improve the image of e-Learning.

The fundamental lessons of the past of digital training

2012 marks the emergence of the first MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course), these online training courses accessible to a large number of participants. First welcomed as revolutionary, we find that the completion rate for this type of training is only 10% to 15%These figures are the same since the creation of the MOOCs and are still valid today. It goes without saying that creating a training course that puts in place the same arrangement of resources leads us to the same results.

The importance of tutoring in digital training

Evacuate received ideas 

Ten years ago, we thought that the teacher was doomed to disappear in the learning process. However, first, we have seen that the presence of a tutor increases the completion rate. Then, it is necessary to verify the integration of skills during the course of the teaching. This step involves an interactive exchange between the learner and a third party. Another argument that is not in favor of the passive format of MOOCs.

From e-Learning 1.0 to differentiated training 4.0 

There are several versions of the training:

  • Training 1.0: This is a master class in a top-down format, the teacher speaks, the learners listen.
  • Training 2.0: The course is more developed, tables and diagrams are integrated into the learning process, always taking place in person.
  • Training 3.0: It marks the beginning of e-Learning with the appearance of MOOCs. It's an innovative format but still very lonely and passive. This is a remote version of training 1.0.

Now, let's see what innovations training 4.0 has in store for us.

A fine division of teaching in the Music Industry

Methodologically, this requires scripting and dividing the training into several objectives:

  • Education in different forms: audio, videos, texts ...
  • A formative assessment with an interactive exchange between the teacher and the student to ensure the acquisition of skills. For this, it is possible to use mini-assessments such as multiple-choice questions.
  • Mediation refers the learner to certain learning resources.

Differentiated training 4.0 encourages us to rethink the objective of training. We need to embed the issue of course efficiency at the center of content creation instead of seeking to maximize learner attendance. To achieve this goal, we must move towards multimodal e-Learning, which combines a face-to-faceremote and work-based course.

Deliver great learning experiences. Start today, grow fast.
