Onboarding gets a makeover!

Sep 25, 2018 | Teach on Mars News

What exactly is onboarding?

Onboarding is the training and support phase to familiarise users with the skills required for a specific tool.
At Teach on Mars, this familiarisation process revolves around two components: “AUTHOR” support for the creation of mobile learning training courses and “MISSION MANAGER” support for managing the application from the Mission Center or applications backoffice.

Onboarding can be taught through a variety of programmes. At Teach on Mars, we have chosen to get our customers and partners onboard with a new blended format, combining digital learning and support sessions.

What does Teach on Mars onboarding actually involve?

Teach on Mars onboarding consists of three main stages:

1. A digital course on the Teach on Mars application, with the added bonus of certification

We give you dedicated access to our “Academy” category so that you can take advantage of mobile training programmes on training design and administration of the Mission Center. This will give you a better idea of the breadth of the possibilities offered by the Teach on Mars solution, while also allowing you to take your first steps in a mobile training application. Once you’ve completed the two “Author” and “Mission Manager” courses, you’re invited to take the certification module to validate your knowledge. This certificate, that you’ll receive directly via email, is the key to accessing the next step of your onboarding journey.

Modality: individual and asynchronous exploratory training

2.Face-to-face or remote support session

Our Success Facilitators will support you to put your knowledge into practice. It’s now time for you to create your first courses and take your first steps in the Mission Center! For this next phase, we adapt to your needs: sessions can take place either face-to-face or via video-conference. The only one key word here is practice! We start from your projects to build effective courses together and facilitate use of the Mission Center in a way that corresponds to your own processes.

Modality: group and synchronous training

3. Mobile Learning FabLab, THE meeting place for mobile learning project leaders

Once you’ve obtained your certification, you can register for a session at the Mobile Learning FabLab (every Friday in Paris). This is an opportunity for you to continue your onboarding with other learning designers and administrators who are also developing solutions that could inspire you. It’s the perfect place for putting mobile learning into practice and sharing your experiences. The Mobile Learning FabLab has similarities with the 70/20/10 model: after training (10% of the learning process), Teach on Mars gives pride of place to discussion (20%) and practical implementation (70%)!

Modality: synchronous support and group sharing of best practices

A video-conferencing version of Mobile Learning FabLab is currently under construction, and our Success Facilitators are dedicated to making sure that all project stakeholders acquire the necessary skills.

Teach on Mars onboarding in a nutshell

We built this course to give you your first “blended mobile” experience so that you can step into the shoes of your future learners!
From a “Project” point of view, this course makes sure you waste no time. Training can start immediately, and be made available to all stakeholders to ensure they stay engaged.
The “in-app” course continues to be accessible and has no time limits: even once trained, you keep all the information you need at your fingertips.

Last but not least, Teach on Mars onboarding allows you to optimise your budget in order to maximise your efficiency.
