BrainX incorporates hundreds of research-proven mastery learning strategies that have been converted into Personal Learning Algorithms. Here are two examples:
Cutting-edge neuroscience research shows that the brain’s default response to receiving training is to send 2 to 20 percent of the material to long-term memory and 80 to 98 percent to short-term memory where it resides for a few seconds to as long as 24 hours, after which it is always purged. This is why learners can pass post-tests given immediately after instruction but fail the same tests give a few days later.
BrainX uses research-proven engagement methods that are personalized to each learner in a way that overrides this default and sends 90% or more of the instruction to long-term memory.
Research shows that instruction alone cannot produce the level of mastery required for top performance in sales and customer service jobs- a level characterized by the ability to rapidly recall, adapt, and apply knowledge and skills during conversations with customers.
The fastest way to create this level of mastery is to practice recalling and using information on diﬀerent days (Spacing Eﬀect) where the diﬃculty of practice items increases as the learner’s skill increases (Ramping Eﬀect). The ideal application of the spacing and ramping eﬀects are as unique to each learner as their ﬁngerprint. The reason Learning Management and Talent Management systems are only marginally eﬀective for sales and customer service training is that they cannot provide individualized spaced reinforcement along with diﬃculty ramping.
The intelligent BrainX system builds and continuously reﬁnes a learning proﬁle on each learner. The proﬁle includes the ideal setting for each of the Personal Learning Algorithms.
Companies who value continuous improvement use the BrainX function that creates a unique 7 to 15 minute daily learning workout for each employee.
Instead of creating one-size-ﬁts-all courses, curriculum developers use the BrainX tools to create content packages. They can use their own content or content from the BrainX best practices library that includes material on sales skills, customer service skills, management, and mental toughness. The BrainX system converts a content package into a personalized course by combining the results of a pre-assessment with the Personal Learning Proﬁle. This is why BrainX can use the same content package to train new hires and to build personal refresher courses that ﬁll in gaps for experienced employees.
When the Intelligent BrainX System senses that a learner needs coaching, a message is sent to the manager which includes exactly what to coach the learner on and how to deliver the coaching. In addition, at any time managers can get coaching suggestions for each of their direct reports. Coaching is tracked and the results recorded for reporting and future follow-up.
