Creative Instructional Design: Featuring 3 Innovative Onboarding And
Induction Examples

All of us are aware of the impact of well-designed


onboarding and induction programs. Today,
several organizations prefer an eLearning-based
approach to deliver them. They seek learning
strategies that can deliver high impact programs
that can induct new team members quickly and
efficiently. With changes in learner demographics
that now include Millennials in significant
numbers, organizations are looking at more
engaging and immersive formats that appeal to
this profile.

3 Innovative Onboarding And Induction Examples Of Creative Instructional Design

In this article, I will outline sticky learning


designs featuring the creative Instructional
Design approaches through 3 examples. These
examples feature learning strategies ranging
from gamification to active learning and the
more recent microlearning (uses video-based
nuggets and guided exploration). I have picked
these examples from diverse industry verticals
like Insurance, Oil and Gas, and eLearning.

What Learning Approaches Can Enhance The Impact Of Onboarding And
Induction Programs?

In the last 13+ years, we have created hundreds of onboarding and induction eLearning and mobile learning or
mLearning courses. Over the last year particularly, there is a clear shift towards responsive designs to offer
these programs on tablets and smartphones.

I have selected 3 onboarding and induction examples that use very different learning strategies:
• Gamification.
• Active learning.
• Microlearning nuggets (extensive usage of videos and guided exploration).

Onboarding And Induction Examples

Example 1: Gamification (Industry Vertical - Insurance)

This is my favorite example that showcases how you can


use gamification for an induction program. We chose
the 100 days onboarding and induction plan to map to a
theme of a mission that needed learners to clear various
levels within the stipulated time. It also had
leaderboards to enable them to assess how they are
faring against the other team members.

You can also refer to my earlier article What Are The Benefits Of mLearning? Featuring 5 Killer Examples where
this example had appeared first.

Onboarding And Induction Examples

Example 2: Active Learning (Industry Vertical - Oil And Gas)

This example features industry-specific, high impact visuals. Our customer needed to train their globally spread
out workforce from different geographies, different cultures, and of course varied age groups. We felt the
thread of the specific industry-based visuals would be the right approach to engage all employees in spite of
this diversity.

Onboarding And Induction Examples

Example 3: Microlearning (Featuring Video-Based


Nuggets) And Guided Exploration (Industry Vertical
- eLearning)
This example is from our own onboarding and induction
program. This features microlearning media pieces (largely
videos) and guided exploration through very simple and
intuitive interactivities. Action images of team members
and video nuggets make the learning interesting, sticky,
and easy to internalize.

Onboarding And Induction Examples

Example 3: Microlearning (Featuring Video-Based Nuggets)


And Guided Exploration (Industry Vertical - eLearning)

New team members are enrolled to the onboarding and


induction program on day 1 of joining with the flexibility to
access it on the device of their choice. The course uses a
responsive design and can be accessed on tablets and
smartphones as well. The average age in our organization
is 28 and we have taken this approach (videos,
microlearning, learning path that can be customized, and
so on) that appeals to this age group. We have used
photographs of our facility, our team members, and our
advisors so that new team members can easily connect
and get integrated into the organization.
