Curate "content" with an eye for value

As I work with our customers that are using IBI Learning Platform, we have many conversations about how they can modify or improve the D365 F&O online content to better fit to their company, implementation, or audience. This is natural inclination for any company that is in the process of implementing a new ERP system. The team leaders want to make the D365 F&O training content relevant and easy to use for learners.

In learning world, this is called content curation. Curation has been traditionally used to describe taking charge of a museum or to organize an art exhibit. In learning area, it involves a process of identification, sifting through, grouping and organizing training content in such a way that it becomes relevant and easy to use for the learners.

To be able to curate content for your D365 F&O learners, you will need few things;

-       A portal or a platform in which the content can be reviewed, organized, and modified. The platform should also have a mechanism to seek feedback, review usage patterns, and identify improvement opportunities.

-       A set of starting content that is built by experts.

-       An individual or a team to drive the curation process.

If you combine these three key elements, you can create value for your D365 F&O implementation and enhance your training strategy. With knowledge, experience, and persistence, you can continuously improve your training content and provide more suitable training to your end users.

We can summarize some of the key value adds of content curation to your D365 F&O training strategy as the following:

-       Creating a knowledge depository that is relevant and easy to use

-       Having high impact content that is specific to users at the time of their need

-       Personalizing the learning experience

-       Identifying learning as a journey

-       Impacting the learning culture positively

As implementers, project managers, and training coordinators, now it is time for us to think like art curators! Instead of curating works of art, we need to focus on curating training content.

After all, a well-designed training is a work of art…
