Why Knowledge Pills
As a society we spend 4-5 hours a day with cell-phones, PDA’s, Blackberry’s, IPods and the internet. In order to compete with students whose attention span is used to instant information & interaction, we recognized that formal training needed to become shorter and digestible – and informal!
Looking at the content available to us via a google search, we took time to analyze some further trends in the educational space. This is what we found:
Currently most online training is too long.
Online training is usually available only in English.
Wikis have a lot of information on popular culture but qualifying that data to be used within a typical business scenario is difficult, without some knowledge on the subject
When looking for courses it is not easy to know what the content of a course is really like. At best, you only get to see a course extract. Searching for courses online, often only provides an abstract before purchase. Will it meet your needs
Courses are not dynamic – once written most courses are never maintained.
Online courses cost too much.
Interactivity in training, can often take a childish approach, and focus too much on ‘flashy’ designs and not enable you to truly focus on the content
Typically off the shelf courses cannot be customized with your companies corporate branding
Typically off the shelf content cannot be customized to meet your specific business needs.
Course Feedback for off the shelf courses are not taken into consideration.
Courses are designed for specialists and not for curious-minded people who want to understand core principles.
Courses are often written by "anonymous" authors.
We like to be different
