Do you struggle with seeing a real effect of all the time and money put into L&D in your organization? Or do you feel that you simply don’t have skills to do your job as well as you want to? You’re definitely not alone. According to Harvard Business Review, as many as 75% of senior managers are dissatisfied with their L&D initiatives, while Gartner reports that 70% of employees feel they lack the skills required to do their jobs.

Employers spend hundreds of billions of dollars on training each year, but too often this investment is not delivering results. One reason is lack of engagement with learning.  Without learner engagement there is no chance of changing behavior and therefore no chance of delivering the business results which are the ultimate goal of all corporate learning initiatives. 

This is why I’m super excited to share that we’re launching “Story” – a brand new addition to Kahoot! Courses. .This ‘mobile first’ interactive storytelling format is yet another innovation which shows  how Kahoot! has evolved from being an assessment module within a wider learning experience to becoming a tool to easily create complete, engaging learning experiences. With the addition of Story, Kahoot! Courses can be used to deliver even more engaging asynchronous onboarding, product knowledge, compliance and partner training.  And more engaging content formats means more impactful corporate learning.  

Corporate learning that tells a story

It’s awesome to see how Kahoot! is already being used in 97% of the Fortune 500 to add engagement to training, presentations, and events. This motivates us to continue improving Kahoot! 360, our tailored offering for business professionals and enterprises. With ‘Courses’, we have already enabled trainers and presenters to design engaging learning experiences using different content formats such as video, Kahoot! sessions, and documents inside the Kahoot! platform. 

Story now makes it even easier for companies to create their own fun, engaging, visually impactful training content. The Story creator tool has an easy-to-use interface with built-in premium image library and video integrations, enabling users to build a powerful, great-looking story with any type of content.

The addition of Story comes at a moment when companies worldwide face increasing urgency to reskill their employees and upgrade their corporate training. The new format will, together with Kahoot! Courses, create a truly unique learning experience that allows enterprises to deliver engaging asynchronous corporate learning at scale. The result? Motivated, learning, and engaged employees!

Making training stick with immersive microlearning

In our recent 2022 Workplace Culture Report, we found that 87% of workers feel bored at work, mostly due to ineffective online training and virtual presentations. We now address this by making it even easier for companies to create their own fun, engaging, visually impactful training content. The inspiration is drawn from Kahoot!’s Motimate mobile learning app, already popular among European enterprise customers, including DNB and Rema 1000, Norway’s leading players within financial services and retail respectively.

With Story’s microlearning format, the learning content is consumed in less than seven minutes, avoiding “content dumping” or overwhelming people with too much information too fast. Seventy percent of conventional corporate training is forgotten within 24 hours; Story is designed to help employees retain more information by sharing knowledge in a coherent, digestible way. The new format also makes it easier for employees to share knowledge with peers outside of conventional meeting spaces. 

Get started with Story today, now available as part of Kahoot! 360 Spirit, Kahoot!’s flagship plan for corporate learning and employee engagement.
