Beyond the Blend – Optimizing the use of your LMS


This session was held by Bryan Chapman of the Chapman Alliance. This conference was specifically targeted at Training managers, so this presentation had more of a mind frame of training large groups of people in different countries. But some of the facts and numbers he mentioned were very interesting:

  • How many hours of work are needed to complete 1 hour of Instructor Lead Teaching (ILT)? 36 hours for 1 hour.
  • How many hours of work are needed to complete 1 hour of eLearning? 221 hours for 1 hour.
  • How many hours of work are needed to complete 1 hour of PowerPoint Based Teaching? 33 hours for 1 hour.
  • How many hours of work are needed to complete 1 hour of Simulation Based Training? 750 hours for 1 hour.
  • IBM Learning Model: 20% of ILT, 20% Self-Assessments, Business Simulations, Practice, Role Play, 60% Product Knowledge, PDF, PPT, Word, Student Guide, White Paper
  • The Power of a Content Management System:
  • YUM Brands (own Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC). Has 900,000 employees. 70% of turnover.
  • More than 34k restaurants. They open 3 new restaurants every day with 30 – 35 average employees per site.
  • Prior methods: 7 large binders with operation standards, guides, procedures, etc.
  • Over 300 Word documents.
  • Converted everything and moved it to Database and CM system.
  • Everyone can go in and build in their own manuals so they can pick and choose the manuals that are relevant to their particular restaurant.
  • Syncs with Job Aids and observation checklists
  • User Created Content:
  • Pharmaceutical company Pfizer created Pfizerpedia.
  • Installed Wikipedia’s open source code for their own use. Have created a large database with employee created content.

This information presented a bunch of interesting concepts. I liked the idea of installing a Wiki. Can we install one for FIU Online? Would it be useful?
