I felt a bit like the young Oliver Twist entering Fagin's lair!

Training ,or more accurately learning, is a voluntary activity. If the learner does not want to learn - they won't. Yoodoo's approach makes a further distinction.
The distinction matters because the extent of learner motivation is likely to be different.
The mandated will actively seek out courses- they will figure out how to do what they need to do.

A training/learning cycle showing this adaption typically goes through these stages
f. Encourage b. Assess
e. Adapt c. Inform
A trainer ,mentor or coach subtly changes the interaction all the time. Like riding a bicycle in a straight line we constantly do little barely perceptible changes to keep on a steady course.
This was followed by Investor Dan talking us through how Recruitment Training Company 'Juice' had used the Yoodoo method.
To exploit the Yoodoo platform to best effect they advise that
Organising your content is paramount
the material must be
- Outcome based
|The earlier interview is played on the screen of the main room. It was also played in a re purposed version for a different levels of learner.|
The axis being
- User types
- Versions about the outcomes
Each Learning episode is served in bite sized pieces of material usually around 90 second chapters.
They strive to achieve this by a process of
1. Re purposing material
2. Versioning the material for different levels of learner
3. Personalisation to each learner who gets a 'bespoke' experience.
An accountant will use the basic templates of a Profit and Loss Account, Balance Sheet and Cash flow statement with each client's accounts.whatever the business type -the corner shop - an SME or a Blue Chip company. The template is pretty similar but the numbers which populate the templates are individual . So it is with the Yoodoo approch to learner journey composition.
As with conventional trainers Yoodoo and their clents find they only need to bespoke around 10 % of the material whilst the core 90% remains the same.

So the personalisation offers dynamic paced content matched to the learner.

Yoodoo with be accompanying every step of the way of their learner's journey as the travelling companion much like a Michelin Green Guide for a tourist .
As for my feeling like Oliver Twist I wanted to learner "MORE !"
I felt like one of the Yoodoo family and in my head as I left Fagin's den to venture outside back home the song from "Oliver" came into my head
Consider yourself one of the family
We've taken to you so strong
It's clear we're going to get along
Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare
Who cares?..What ever we've got we share!
If it should chance to be
We should see
Some harder days
Empty larder days
Always a-chance we'll meet
To foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house!
Consider yourself our mate
We don't want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state
One of us...
(lyrics from Oliver Twist - Musical byLionel Bart)
