Digital Learning Content FAQs

Digital learning content is an effective way to deliver training — including compliance, regulatory, and, sometimes, voluntary training material. Digital learning content is a popular format thanks to its ease of use and comparatively lower cost to traditional training formats. It is typically stored, distributed, and monitored using a learning management system (LMS) or learner experience platform (LXP). Digital learning content plays a vital role in upskilling, training, and onboarding employees.

Broadly speaking, digital learning content is categorised into two types: ‘bespoke’ and ‘off-the-shelf’ (OTS). Bespoke learning content is custom-made, or at the very least tailored to the requirements of an organisation, whereas OTS content can be purchased as a ready-made training content type. Digital learning content from either of these two segments can further be sorted into ‘types’ including audio, video, documents, webinars, quizzes, surveys, and questionnaires.

Microlearning content describes shorter, more focused content that covers specific topics within a broader theme. Typically, microlearning content is delivered in on-the-job (OTJ) training modules – where the learner requires quick access to particular information. This can be especially helpful for learners who struggle with focus, have demanding schedules, or prefer to receive more targeted and relevant content as a ‘top up’ to existing training.

You can create learning content when working with a learning consultancy, or you can choose to buy ‘ready-made’ modules – known as off-the-shelf (OTS) content. The content is then uploaded into your LMS for your learners to enjoy. Learning content is typically created with a digital-first approach, and it can then be retrospectively translated to print and other mediums.

Yes. Digital learning content must be either SCORM (secure content object reference model) compliant or xAPI compliant. These two formats standardise the way content is displayed across learning platforms.
