Mobile and Web Applications for Training the Modern Workforce
Get critical information at the point of need, develop skills on demand, and provide learning content from trusted sources.
What is Capillary?
Capillary is a learning platform. Experts can build, distribute and track learning resources for distributed audiences, across devices and operating systems. That’s crucial, trusted information on phones and tablets where it’s needed most. Capillary customers get branded web and mobile apps, distributed through app stores and enterprise channels. End users get just-in-time and microlearning resources.
Why do I need an app?
Capillary apps make accessing training more intuitive and enjoyable for your audience. They also give you analytics data you can use to track and optimize your content and delivery. An app is a ‘walled garden,’ meaning you control the quality of the learning materials. Using Capillary apps lets you make more informed investments in training and drives productivity and ROI.
What makes Capillary different from other learning management systems?
Most LMSs are modeled on the classroom experience. Users attend a virtual class, educators teach to a screen. It’s a static, teacher-controlled model and it takes its cue from the institutions we use to teach — not the way we actually learn. Capillary is modeled on the way knowledge and expertise flows through organizations, letting subject matter experts in your organization create standards-based content and users request it when they need it.
Microlearning and just-in-time training
Mobile learning makes it possible to build training around the ways people actually learn: microlearning concentrates on short, task- or goal-specific content that focuses on specific skills, topics or learning goals. Think short training videos, infographics, or troubleshooting checklists. This sort of short, repetitive learning reduces cognitive load and supports natural memory formation.
Just-in-time training is like just-in-time logistics. Instead of a stockpile of pre-existing knowledge, trainees reach for what they need to know right when they need to know it. In fact, people are already doing this — they’re just relying on Youtube instead of trustworthy and authoritative content.
Capillary lets your organization support staff to gain competence naturally and gives them reliable tools they can use at the point-of-need.
