Overall Satisfaction with Khan Academy

In the insurance industry changes come fast, in order to adapt we require innovative adult learning platforms to aid our training teams. We are often faced with sudden product or legislation updates which require training across the entire sales floor. We have tested several adult learning platforms to date. In my personal experience I found Khan Academy could fill this gap. The information is presented in a light and easy-to-absorb manner.
  • Adult learning.
  • User engagement.
  • Information is presented in an easy to digest manner.
  • Visuals can become confusing at times.
  • Ability to jump through lessons with easy back and forth for review
  • Adult learning-friendly wording and visuals.
  • Easy to use for users.
  • Very fast and response tool.
  • Allowed trainers to have more time.
  • Self-serve save our staff time and effort.
  • Effort for staff can be put toward other objectives.
  • New Hire Training is easier and less resources required.
I personally found Khan Academy much better suited for adult learning of difficult or larger topics. Not so much for smaller changes that can be communicated via email. But it was more engaging and I found the information easier to digest. Change management can be tough but with the right tools it can be a breeze.

Yes

For larger projects, product changes, legislation updates, Khan Academy makes it easy to transfer information in an easy-to-digest manner. The software works really well with adult learning as it keeps users engaged in quick bite-sized lessons. It's more appropriate for larger changes and bigger implementations. It's less appropriate for smaller projects, or minor changes/updates, where quick training sessions would suffice.
