Provide Training as Quickly as the Market Changes
It is no secret that training needs have changed substantially over the past several months. Large training events and online learning modules are just not going to address the types of training needs that are surfacing for representatives as they navigate these new virtual waters.
So allow us to ask…
What is your training team doing to fill the gap between the standard Learning Management System (LMS) and formerly live training opportunities?
At this point, the term ‘micro-learning’ might pop into your mind. According to the book, Micro-learning, Short and Sweet, short bursts of information can be a very effective way to communicate between large learning events – but what if the amount of material that you need to communicate is worthy of a large event, but you are not able to hold a live meeting or immediately create an online learning module? Enter mlThrive – a strategic solution that enriches micro-learning opportunities with on-demand learning, a searchable knowledge base, and live chat functionality.
Micro-learning: keeping the attention of your team
Since the year 2000 the average human’s attention span has dropped from 12 seconds to 8 seconds. A goldfish’s attention span is estimated to be 8 seconds!
Though our collective ability to spend long periods of time has clearly decreased, the up-side is that we “non-goldfish” have access to so much more information, and there are studies that support that this shorter attention span actually helps us multitask.
Many live science trainers are proponents of micro-learning, however, it can be a heavy lift for an already lean training team. mlThrive was created to help life science sales trainers enhance and communicate their key messages.
mlThrive is equipped to communicate both your macro-learning and micro-learning content in a thoughtful, streamlined way which enhances the reach of, and lightens the load on, your training team.
Enriching micro-learning and increasing meaningful communications
Since March of 2020, there have been weekly (scratch that) daily changes that teams must be aware of as they have been calling on providers. These types of training needs can not often be be met by a long learning module or mass-email blasts. Trainers might be finding themselves in a space where neither their standard LMS nor their live training strategy meet their current needs.

mlThrive helps bridge the gap by providing agile communication that can thoughtfully distribute micro-learning and training communications at the moment the market shifts (scratch that) shifts again.
Searchable Knowledge Base/Chat Functionality
Further bridging the gap between a LMS and live in-person training is the capability of the mlThrive searchable knowledge base. This password-protected, searchable, artificial intelligence enhanced functionality can help your representatives obtain answers to questions on their time.

Reporting & Metrics
Apart from the disorganization of mass email threads to distribute micro-learning communications, is the lack of reportable metrics. Additionally, are no metrics to ensure that the communications fostered a desire to engage with additional content. In a nut-shell e-mail updates simply do not provide for user-led engagement at the moment of need.
mlThrive’s rich reporting metrics let you and your team know which representatives have shown activity with your materials. Additionally, your teams will benefit from one-click scheduling from representatives directly with their trainers using mlThrive’s Outlook integration. Meeting requests plus weekly reporting let your trainers know that mlThrive is working to help your team learn faster than a goldfish.
