Raleigh, NC – January 9, 2017 – Training Industry, Inc. and Conduent Learning Services have released a new research report investigating how L&D departments are leveraging technology to repurpose and repackage existing training content across learning audiences.

The study, which included 273 companies, reveals several key findings, including:

  • 79 percent of learners say that digital materials do a better job of supporting training than printed classroom materials.
  • 88 percent of companies cite mobile access as a major benefit of converting classroom training materials to digital.
  • 79 percent of companies say that offering alternate formats of training materials is critical to the support of training initiatives.

The full report, “Recycled & Reused: Repurposing Training Content for Digital Delivery,” can be downloaded here.

“This study provides a better understanding of how companies are migrating their existing training curricula to digital formats,” said Tom Whelan, Ph.D., Training Industry, Inc.’s Director of Corporate Research. “One of the most intriguing parts of this research were findings that the perceived usefulness of digital materials and impact on job performance were not significantly related to the format currently used by a company. This finding suggests that employees see the value in digital content regardless of how much training they currently encounter in print or electronic form.”
