Learning solutions should not be one-size-fits-all. As long-time experts in learning and development, we know what works: solutions that are carefully crafted and delivered with each organization’s challenges, budget, goals, and resources in mind. We’ve created a learning and development model that can support all learning styles, so employees are always engaged and supported.
Our teams develop dynamic and immersive eLearning experiences that
support a breadth of interactivity, from simple designs to adaptive simulations, branching scenarios, and immersive game-like experiences.
ILT provides an engaging and immersive experience through a wide variety of
learning support tools and performance-based activities. Learners refine and master new skills through practice sessions, immersive discussions, and real-time feedback and coaching opportunities.
These types of events provide learners with easily accessible learning
opportunities that are authentic and engaging. Learners can live stream immersive, branded training experiences on whatever device is most comfortable for them. From supporting corporate communication to rolling out a new product line, live streaming events support a wide range of learning needs.
This solution develops bite-size content that’s easily digestible for learners.
Microlearning focuses on short and concise learning modules or activities that boost learner engagement and knowledge retention and is perfect for learning complex topics or covering in-depth training material over time.
Our team designs custom content for mobile devices, providing learners with
access to learning content whenever and wherever they choose. Many of our ed-tech applications are also available on mobile.
We recommend and design several types of digital and paper-based
performance job aids, including applications, infographics, leave-behinds, quick reference cards, and reference guides. These reference tools support on-the-job performance by providing learners with quick and easily accessible information on key tasks and behaviors.
Our Creative Services team develops several different types of videos,
including explainer, motion graphic animation, and tutorial. Video-based learning provides an engaging and dynamic experience for learners while remaining cost-effective, scalable, and easy to distribute.
Our team supports scalable, convenient, and cost-effective course delivery
through virtual instructor-led training. Immersive virtual training utilizes best-in-class technology, expert facilitation, and proven instructional design principles to support learners through their journey.
Our team supports immersive technologies to create simulated
scenarios, enabling learners to focus on skill refinement through simulated practice sessions. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) go beyond traditional role-playing to make an impactful and standout experience for learners.
Ardent is committed to your success, and we don’t disappear after the initial learning solution is delivered. We track goals, measure results, and provide the next step of learning in order to maintain performance.
Sustainment activities harness what your teams have learned and provide additional support of the knowledge and skills acquired through learning. Interested in sustaining results through learning? Let’s talk!
Our client services go beyond designing curriculum and development initiatives. As learning and development leaders, we offer services that work together to fully support your learning programs.
Services like event logistics, marketing services, application development, and more allow us to create custom, holistic learning solutions and support our clients’ unique needs.
Ardent has been recognized by The Training Industry as a 2020 Top Custom
Content Development company. Our custom content solutions are rooted in rigorous learning and performance improvement principles.
Our custom creative services are on par with offerings typical of an advertising
agency. These services include, but are not limited to, logo design, copywriting, and cohesive visual design systems.
Coordinating and scheduling training events can be hectic. Ardent makes this
process easy by managing all of the logistics for deploying these types of events across your distributed workforce, across the country, or around the world. Ardent can also interview, select, and train staff if you can’t source your trainers, making the process seamless and effective.
Our team designs and develops gamification into core learning solutions,
such as ILT and eLearning. Gamification reinforces important concepts and keeps learners motivated and attentive through the learning process.
We provide expert consultation in the areas of learning strategy, curriculum
design, business transformation, and technology solutions. Consultation sessions are collaborative, with Ardent team members facilitating discussions, fact-finding activities, and brainstorming exercises. This approach supports two ultimate goals: discover the root of the problem the client is trying to solve and provide informed learning solutions for how to solve it.
Our technology team leverages the power of data, analytics, and reporting to
inform decision-making with actionable insights so that both businesses and their learning departments can understand the value of the learning solution.
Our technology experts work alongside our clients to create, build, and
implement the best technology learning solutions for the organization.
We can help keep your learning event on schedule and on-track. We schedule
and manage facilitated learning events, including in-person and virtual ILT, and live streaming events.
Ardent can help keep your LMS running efficiently and effectively.
Our administrators curate content, define learning roles, assign learning plans, resolve issues or bugs, and provide ongoing data and analytics.
Our team provides custom technology solutions and services to align with
an organization’s technical environment to deliver custom learning assets. Ardent partners with the best and brightest software developers to blend behavioral science, art, and technology.
To offset the skill decline that can be expected over time, Ardent recommends
building sustainment features into a learning journey. Sustainment can range from quick, bite-sized microlearning modules to peer-to-peer coaching on the job and in the office.
Our team works with experts in the field who can quickly adapt content in
the languages needed to support all learners.
Marketing communication services such as email campaigns have enabled clients
to drive participation and promote learning programs within their organization. Automated workflows ensure employees are provided the information they need and are a reminded of different activities.
Our comprehensive needs assessment approach starts with immersion in
the client’s business to understand the brand, customers, objectives, and challenges. The next step is analysis, where Ardent identifies gaps in employee performance, determines the cause, and uncovers how those gaps effect the business, employees, and customers. Finally, our team utilizes the findings from these phases to provide clients with an actionable learning and development strategy.
Our team provides structured and engaging training sessions for
facilitators with content certification at the end of the event. These types of events are critical to ensure reliability of the facilitators' knowledge when deployed to deliver custom content that is engaging and sparking desired changes.
Our custom solutions are made possible because of the experts that support them. We call our team of subject matter experts our Centers of Excellence, which are composed of specialists in learner experience, technology, design, facilitation and project management. Together, we produce solutions that yield results.
Ardent Learning has over 25 years of providing custom learning solutions to industry leaders, and we know they're not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal.
