You’re always looking for ways to bridge gaps and boost your staff’s knowledge, skills, and performance. Today, we’re going to look at four strategic ways you can do that, by using our Assessments feature. Assessments allow you to ask employees (and even potential employees) a series of targeted questions that can help you to maximize performance.
Uncover What Your Employees Know
To keep your business running efficiently, you need your staff to have the right knowledge and skills to do their jobs. It can be a challenge to keep track of every employee’s current skill set and knowledge level. And once you do have a way to assess everyone, how do you bridge gaps between where they are, and where you need them to be?
How to Train Your On-the-Go Staff
Where do you watch videos, listen to music, and communicate with friends, family, and coworkers? Chances are, you do all of these things on a mobile device. According to the Digital Future Report from the University of Southern California at Annenberg's Center for the Digital Future, we spend an average of nearly 24 hours a week online, and 82% of us are using our mobile phones to get online. Your staff already has a tool for learning in the palm of their hands; you need to put training and professional development opportunities there, too.
There's a Time and a Place for Everything
When it comes to training, the time is anytime, and the place is anywhere!
We’re pleased to report that four Health and Safety courses created for the Pennsylvania Key have gone live. Each course was designed to meet a variety of standards, including certification regulations, best medical practices, and practical application in a variety of settings. They are also required under new federal guidelines for early care and education professionals working with children who receive subsidized care.

First of all, you might be wondering, “What is a GUI?” GUI, pronounced gooey, stands for Graphical User Interface. It is used to help learners easily interact with a course through the use of visual indicators. In terms of the courses we design here at CypherWorx, the GUI is the interface that appears around the perimeter of the slides in our courses, and includes clickable buttons and tabs, player controls, and customizable color schemes.

In our work as instructional designers, we are focused on meeting—and exceeding—the expectations of our clients, by developing engaging, interactive elearning that helps the end user develop and enhance their on-the-job skills. In that work, we are so focused on the day-to-day details, we sometimes end up neglecting an important part of ourselves—our creativity.
