Doctor Miami is an American plastic surgeon who livestreams his operations on Snapchat. Over half a million medical students follow him and watch his videos around the world. They are looking to get a glimpse of their post-grad life and future work. Though Dr. Miami’s videos will never completely replace college classes, his snaps are in fact offering students a new kind of learning method that complements their formal training.
As for Julius Yego, he is a Kenyan track and field athlete who won silver at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro competing in the javelin throw. His story is unlike any other: he is nicknamed “Mr. YouTube Man” because he learned to throw and improve his skills by watching other javelin athletes on YouTube. Of course, he also – like any other great champion – spent an insane amount of time sweating on the field and pumping iron in the gym.
The “Do it yourself” movement is thus spreading fast and influencing even the most unthinkable sectors. Knowledge has become a commodity, meaning that it can be found everywhere, anytime, and everybody can train on any topic. The important thing is not where we find information, but how we use it.
So, what about training in the corporate world? How does this trend impact how employees get trained? How do we engage learners using these new tools? How can companies walk their employees through skills improvement? How do we offer learning methods that are in line with the new consumption habits?
Jérôme Bruet, VP of Talentsoft Learning, tries to answer these questions in this webinar, entitled “From Classrooms to Snapchat: The Future of Learning”.
