The future of accelerated learning tools
Changing user habits and emerging digital technologies have evolved the learning landscape, requiring organizations to adopt new strategies and content to deliver an effective learning experience for their associates. The current global COVID-19 crisis has forced almost every organization to rapidly support their workforce to work remotely. This rapid transition of work style has led to increased collaboration with peers. The change has necessitated a standardized approach through digital learning and content to ensure adoption.
Customers are increasingly turning to digital for support. They prefer web or mobile self-service support over making calls to the Helpdesk and other technical support forums. People rely more on self-help artifacts. Adobe products, such as Adobe RoboHelp, Captivate, and FrameMaker have helped deliver highly engaging and personalized digital experiences and have generated tremendous value for Cognizant. The growing adoption of remote work resources is only going to make them more valuable.
