The Salt Adaptive eLearning authoring tool revolutionises the way organisations conduct compliance training. With the pandemic-induced shift towards remote work, tools like Adaptive have become more relevant than ever before.

Creating effective compliance training programs requires more than just using a standard eLearning authoring tool. To ensure the training is effective, it needs to be customised to the organisation’s industry and environment, adapted to the learners’ needs, and recognises their previous knowledge.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of identifying, assessing, and recognising an individual’s prior learning. This process involves identifying the skills and knowledge a learner has already gained through formal or informal learning experiences. It is essential in designing an effective compliance training program as it helps tailor the training to the learners’ existing knowledge and reduces push back from staff who have completed mandatory training year on year.

The Salt Adaptive eLearning authoring tool supports RPL by allowing learners to skip training modules that cover skills and knowledge they have already acquired. For example, if a learner has completed a similar compliance training course before, by first proving competence through testing in the system, they can skip modules that cover the same material, saving time and making the training more engaging. This may reduce the time taken by up to 50% or more which, when multiplied across a large number of staff, can be a considerable time saving for the organisation and reduce learner fatigue.

Multilingual content is another critical component of compliance training. With businesses operating in an increasingly globalised world, it is essential to provide training in multiple languages to reach a broader audience and ensure comprehension. The Salt Adaptive eLearning authoring tool has native features to allow learners to choose the language they would prefer. The analytics provided in the system give training managers visibility into the effectiveness of training across different languages.

Another core aspect of Salt Adaptive is centralised cloud-based content management. Compliance training is subject to continually changing legislation and case law. By having content centralised, updates can be pushed out as soon as the changes are ready, ensuring that there are no more out-of-date versions of courses on your Learning Management System (LMS).

The system also allows for collaborative content creation with multiple authors able to design and update the same course. The “light edit” feature is perfect for subject matter experts and proofreaders to do a final review and make minor changes.  All changes are recorded in the audit log, which also allows authors to roll back to previous versions. Content changes are time and date stamped.

The Salt Adaptive eLearning authoring tool has become essential in creating effective compliance training programs. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), inline multilingual content, and course development and maintenance collaboration are all critical components of modern mandatory training programs. By using the Salt Adaptive eLearning authoring tool, organisations can tailor their training programs to the learners’ needs, save time, and provide high-quality training that staff are happy to receive.
