Informal learning—in which employees learn from one another, on the job, and through other unstructured methods—continues to gain favor. But in regulated, compliance-driven industries, informal learning can be a dicey proposition.
What if you could transform learning from an obligation to an activity a person enjoys? This would significantly improve engagement for your learners. One of the secrets to doing this is using technology. Designing such an experience that’s both appealing and interesting is a challenge, but when it’s done right, it can help people move mountains.

A common misunderstanding of “informal learning” is that it can’t be intentionally designed, implemented, and measured. This assumption is wrong. Informal learning is actually a defendable discipline better known as Performance Support. Performance Support (PS) is providing intuitive, tailored aid to a person at his or her moment of need to ensure the most effective performance.
