How does it work?
Learning Pool Encore is tightly integrated with Totara LMS and allows administrators to easily add Encore activities to their courses, set-up the required tasks and schedule them for delivery. Encore activities are then pushed to the learner, by email and to their mobile phone as follow-on activities to improve learner retention.
Do you find faltering learner retention rates frustrating? Research shows clear benefits of using spaced practice as part of the modern blend of learning. Crucially the experts say that this approach positively impacts the only thing that matters – learner retention. Learning Pool Encore was designed around the principles of Spaced Practice. A concept closely related to the Forgetting Curve where information is lost from one’s memory over time if effort is not expended in its retention.
Having an app that simply fetches tasks from the LMS won’t give you Spaced Practice, You need something more, and that’s Encore Push Notifications. LMS administrators schedule the delivery times of Encore tasks at intelligent intervals based on how familiar the learner is with the course material. Users who demonstrate high levels of knowledge get fewer tasks which are more complex while those who are new to the content get more reminders so they can build their core knowledge.
Move knowledge to long term memory
Improved performance happens when tasks become habitual and well known by users. Learning Pool Encore lets you remind your users about the key learning months after they’ve taken the course. Using the Mobile app users can also keep the learning in their pocket and use it any time they need it providing genuine learning at the point of need.
