Recap:

  • What services does SLIM offer?
  • Impact of services on Business and learner

Gone are the days learning was confined to a classroom or a desktop. Social learning or mobile learning is ideal for providing content to learners at the time of need and in the context best suited for that specific environment.

Communication channels in their many forms are literally everywhere! As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve.

Micro learning, as we know it today, may further be broken down in the years to come. Byte sized learning may become “Nibble” sized, for all we know!! But what will remain a constant is the tendency of the learner to want to learn more with lesser and lesser efforts. Today, we talk about bringing “learning to the learners” as a revolution in the leaning domain. Tomorrow that will be the norm. No learner would want to spend hours confined to a classroom or even login to e-learning courses to complete sessions.

The mega revolution in “wearable” devices will provide even more flexibility, choice and accessibility to the learner on when, what and how to learn. SLIM (Social Learning via Instant Messaging) will evolve, and it will be an organic growth keeping abreast with the trending technologies.

The basis of SLIM lies in the following beliefs:

  1. Provide flexible learning opportunities
  2. Cater to diminishing attention spans
  3. Make use of existing technology without any overhead investment
  4. Service the business and learners in a consistent, efficient and effective manner

SLIM as a learning delivery methodology is technology agnostic and can mold itself to suit the technology of choice gives it a huge edge over other packaged services. And the matter of fact is that instant messaging will evolve and one can enable much better learning proliferation via SLIM.

The challenge in implementation of SLIM is not in the complexity of the services, but in the scalability. Neeyamo as a pioneer and focused service provider will be able to provide highly evolved, innovative and exciting modes of learning to the learners of tomorrow.
