At 2SimplyLearn we focus on people and performance.  We will ask a lot of questions to really get to know you and your organisations vision, mission, strategic goals and culture.  Our team can work with you to design, develop, and deliver learning interventions using a variety of methods including Micro-learning & eLearning, Virtual Classroom, group and one-to-one coaching, or conversion of classroom training to Live online learning. We can also work with you to evaluate the behavioural impact of the training. 

The success of a company can depend on how well employees perform their tasks. Yet, companies often struggle with defining what that looks like.  It is important that you understand why employees are under-performing - this information is invaluable in ensuring the solutions you choose really solve the problem.

After a successful career in Retail Management and Leadership I focused my attention on helping people to develop and grow, I moved into learning and development (L&D) and now have over 20 years of experience in training design and delivery, and L&D IT roles across sectors including Employability and Retail.  My technical aptitude paired with my ability to know what learners need from modern technology led me to specialise in Digital and Multimedia Learning Interventions. After managing the procurement, implementation and roll-out of various L&D Platforms and software packages I decided to use my knowledge and experience to develop a Learning Management System (LMS) which uses a suite of functional tools to support Blended Learning Interventions, whilst being intuitive and accessible for users.

My goal is to make high quality engaging bite-sized Digital Learning interventions which encourage individuals to take control of their own learning journeys and achieve not only their goals but realise their potential in the modern workplace.

Our Offer

The 2SimplyLearn Learning Management System (LMS) is a cloud-based digital platform that has been designed to provide clients with a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) that supports bespoke blended learning interventions to their people. In other words, our LMS is like your own online talent, learning and development academy. The system allows you to create and store digital learning programmes, provides learners access to the content, and helps you evaluate the results.

Microlearning uses media across multiple devices to engage and inspire learners to explore a topic further and encourages the learner to apply what they learn immediately. 

Microlearning are:

  • Are usually only two to three minutes long
  • Can be accessed by employees when and how they choose
  • Focus on one specific learning objective or concept

Some examples of a perfect fit for microlearning include:

  • A quick tutorial that covers a new system for employees to use
  • A quick video followed by a test to accompany the roll-out of a new process or product
  • Small modules that employees can access to help them learn an advanced skill

See examples here:

Blended learning is an approach that uses both face-to-face classroom instruction and online learning to maximize the learning experience. The blended learning paradigm successfully blends the individualized attention of the classroom with the independence and flexibility of eLearning.

Instructor-led Training (ILT) + Online Learning (synchronous and asynchronous) + Performance Support = Blended Learning.

Blended learning combines traditional, instructor-led learning with digital computer-based learning and can solve the issues that both traditional learning and eLearning face by combining the best of both approaches.

The “traditional” aspects of instructor-led learning can be delivered online in real-time through, virtual classroom sessions, live meetings and webinars. Likewise, employees may get a foundation for a topic with an eLearning course or MicroLearning session, and then practice those skills in a live simulation with an instructor within a virtual classroom.

A virtual classroom is an online classroom that allows participants to communicate with one another, view presentations or videos, interact with other each other, and engage in learning activities.  For learners, a VC allows them to benefit from the opportunity to learn new skills without having to travel.  

The features of our VC promotes interactivity, synchrony, ease of use and a sense of community. 2SimplyLearn’s CV boasts a wide range of tools including webcams, audio chat, text chat, resource sharing, e-board, hand raising, application sharing, breakout rooms, polling, emoticons, videos, and archiving sessions.   Most traditional classroom training can be converted to suit a virtual classroom allowing organisations and learners to reap the benefits of this approach. At 2SimplyLearn we have qualified VC facilitators and Producers who can ensure that learning objectives are met within each session. 

Coaching is all about asking the right questions to bring out the best in people, helping them achieve their goals. At 2SimplyLearn we work closely with individuals and teams to help them to realize their potential and ensure that they develop the skills, understanding, knowledge, and motivation to succeed.

An individualised process that builds capability to achieve short and long-term organisational goals, leadership coaching helps leaders implement personal and organisational change by providing support and keeping them focused on attaining their personal and professional goals.
