This blog talks about features remote employees must have while learning remotely.
It took a microscopic organism to bring the fast-paced, number-driven and goal-oriented world to a standstill. The economy of several countries is going to take a major hit post this pandemic. No one really anticipated a scenario where businesses would be left in a position to mandate remote working at such short notice.
But that is the case today. Every organization is currently trying to make work from home possible for their employees. But unfortunately, it is amidst this chaos that many of them found out that they do not have the know-how to do so.
For employees who have been newly onboarded or the ones in the sales department who need to be constantly updated about the products and services and client status in the sales funnel, it gets extremely difficult to work in isolation.
Having a corporate online training platform that employees could use remotely would help organizations in continuing with their training and development processes.
But which online platform would you select for this task? There are many in the market. You need to opt for one that is reliable, has all the features and capability to ensure a seamless remote training experience for your employees. KITABOO Insight is one such platform trusted by global clients and can be leveraged to meet your specific training needs.
Here’s why KITABOO Insight is the best learning platform for training remote employees.
1. Easy-to-Use Interface
Employees working from home or remotely have limited access to IT helpdesk, unlike while they were in office. So, the learning interface must be easy to use.
The L&D teams must be able to use the tool and operate it without difficulty as they will have to manage the backend operations such as uploading and updating eLearning modules. As for employees, they will appreciate a platform which allows them to navigate easily and functions smoothly.
2. Custom Branding
Just like all your products have your company’s branding on them, your learning materials should be no different. KITABOO Insight is a white labelled application that you can customize to your liking.
This means, not only do you have control over its design and layout, but you can also get your custom theme, favicon, and logo. Using a white-labeled training platform lets you add a touch of personalization to your training delivery tool. And it would also instill confidence in employees that they are using their organization’s custom eLearning tool rather than a third-party tool with off-the-shelf courses.

3. Offline Reading
Internet connections become unpredictable at times. You don’t want your employees to be bogged down due to network connectivity issues. With KITABOO Insight’s offline reading feature, your employees can download and save the content for reading at a later time. This solves the problem of downtime during limited access to the internet.
4. Cloud-hosted Platform
There are many benefits to having a cloud-hosted platform as your training delivery tool. For one, you can be assured that your content is safe and is accessible from anywhere and anytime. Which means, L&D teams can modify the content as per the latest updates and it will be reflected across all users’ devices. This helps keep all remote employees on the same page.
5. Interactive Elements
KITABOO Insight is a highly interactive learning platform. While it’s an ideal training platform for employees on the go, it is also equally effective in training your employees who are working from home. You can add multiple interactive elements to make the learning process more engaging and fun.
The tool allows you to add audio, video, animations, simulations, gamification, quizzes etc. It also lets the user make notes, share with their colleagues/instructors, bookmark pages, search for information, highlight texts and more, providing an interactive and engaging learning experience.
The platform also has collaboration tools, allowing employees to communicate and work collaboratively. Although your employees are working in a remote environment, you need to ensure that they stay connected to facilitate smooth business operations.
6. Assessment Tools
KITABOO Insight offers over 25 different types of assessments to gauge if your employees are able to grasp the concepts thoroughly. Apart from the usual fill in the blanks and multiple-choice questions (MCQs), you can add assessments in the form of drag and drop, match the pairs, labelling, sequencing and many more. The platform also enables users and instructors to view the assessment results and scores in real time.
KITABOO Insight’s analytics help you measure the effectiveness of the training program. It provides detailed insights into the learning pattern of employees, providing managers with actionable information.
You can get insights into content consumed by each employee, percentage of the course completed, most viewed digital asset etc. This information helps L&D teams to identify gaps in the training program and accordingly modify their training approach or redesign the eLearning module.
Here are the top employee training metrics and 7 ways HR experts use them.
8. Licenses and Validity
You can create an individual license for every employee or create a group license. Based on the license type, access codes are generated, with which your remote employees can access the content online.
You can also decide the validity period of the license. Once the validity expires, employees would no longer be able to view the content. This feature gives managers control over who can view the content.

10. Content Security/DRM Protection
KITABOO Insight gives you complete control over the content. In order to protect your content from unauthorized use and download, you can encrypt your training modules with DRM protection. This will ensure that only those users with the access codes can view the courses.
