Wiztango is a platform for Subject Matter Experts, Authors, Product Managers and other Content Originators.
Our business model and technology works for you
To build a scalable revenue learning model by digitalizing your expertise
By assigning trainers, consultants or managers to facilitate digitally-blended training through a learning circle
For employees, professionals or students to contextualize & apply learning resulting in collective intelligence and ROI
Learning Circles Effectively integrate learning with knowledge to achieve the ultimate aim for stakeholders.
Changes to mindset, behaviors and habits have to be reinforced over a period of time. Moving away from traditional ways of teaching and training begins with the evolution of the stakeholder roles & skills sets.
Learning Circles is a digital form of training, empowering Subject Matter Experts to publish knowledge as a digital intervention and trainers to apply innovation and creativity in facilitating engagement on it.
The engagement allows collaborative learning – observe what everyone has learnt and their opinions. Through digitalization, practice at-home, at-the-workplace or in-class, reinforcement of application of learning is made possible.
Permeation of learning and scalability of the transformation is achieved as stakeholders are enabled to co-facilitate face-to-face, virtually and digitally.
A natural evolution for the trainer’s role in the digital age
The responsibility of the trainer and/or facilitator will no longer simply fall under the domain of the Human Resource Department or Learning & Development function. We highly recommend building and sustaining a network of internal (and possibly external long-term partnerships) coaches and subject matter experts as Digital Facilitators. These Digital Facilitators will:
Herald a new change in what learning means to the participants
Cultivate importance of in what is being received by everyone through participation than what is being delivered
Will create the cutting edge in using technology to learn than learning the technology
The Digital Facilitator's role is to guide the learner and encourage and/or enable learners to access and evaluate information; not serve as the expert domain or be the source of facts and/or knowledge. Learning will evolve in double and triple loop learning, and not become a single process.
The focus is for the learners to evolve (self-and team directed learning) and build collective intelligence. This builds a patterned culture of "well-intentioned", "well-heeled", and "well-ness" learners, thereby developing team dynamics, active partner support and coaching, asking for questions rather than asking for answers, and helping each learner into future learning opportunities: this is the foundation and continuity of organisational learning and the learning organisation.
Developing and publishing a learning circle on Wiztango is easy
Design and development needs to have an end in mind, question types and corresponding responses to be drawn out from learners need to be carefully thought through. Including, the type of qualitative & quantitative data needed for further analysis. The design of the digital content coupled with coaching, mentoring, facilitation complements any training intervention resulting in a wholesome holistic approach to learning.
Publishers can rapidly digitalize any given framework. For example, if we consider a simplified form of Gagne’s 9 events. With this approach, the publisher needs to:
Allow opportunity to research online and convert findings into insights.
Create synthesis combining memory with association of knowledge with relevant past experience.
Apply learning through a case study or work related project.
This approach drives focus on the 70 of the 70-20-10 framework, allowing application of learning and practice. The multiplier effect is created through facilitated collaboration.
Convert data into ‘insights’, ‘intelligence’, and ‘recommendations’
What is the common training delivery practice today?
Pre-work & assessment, classroom training, post assessment & evaluation. Data may be collected from different sources including pen and pencil or online. Wiztango permits qualitative and quantitative data to be collected during delivery and retrieved from one source: Questions, Polls, Ranking, Profiling, Responses, Comments, Inputs, Opinions, Views and Feedback
What can you do with data collected?
Create video to provide feedback and highlights. Create pie charts, graphs, dashboard, etc. Do a collective intelligence data dump. Creative, innovative ways in presenting learning outcomes is made possible with Wiztango. Data can be collated not only from one source, location, intervention, it can be collated across locations and interventions. For example, if a team facilitated an intervention separately across twenty locations over two months, Wiztango has the ability to collate data across all locations for this intervention for further analysis.
We work with the entire gamut of the learning supply chain including Subject Matter Experts, Product Owners, Authors, Publishers, Training Enterprises, Corporate, Institutes and Schools. As learning-architects we enable SMEs & Publishers to leverage our digital technology & know-how to design & develop a scalable business model. A corporate Publisher may choose to manage the complete learning supply chain from sales, publishing and facilitation. However, an independent or individual SME may choose to publish content and manage facilitators whilst partnering us and others for sales.
