Using Thiagi's 4Door™ eLearning Approach

OVERVIEW

At the Thiagi Group, we live by a simple mantra: Faster, Cheaper, and Better. Business gurus and executives have long claimed you cannot have all three, but we believe otherwise. For the past 15 years, we have been designing and delivering e-learning courses using our proprietary 4Door™ eLearning approach.

Here are some of the key design principles that we following this approach:

  • Learning should be relevant to one’s job,
  • Learning activities should be aligned to the objectives.
  • Participants should choose the best path to demonstrate their mastery in the performance test.
  • The course should be cost-effective and easy to modify.

An Introduction to the 4Door™ Approach

With the 4Door™ Approach, we have developed technical courses, onboarding programs, soft skill modules, and more for different sizes and types of companies. The 4Door™ Approach is platform agnostic, meaning you could use it with whatever technical tools you have at hand. And, most importantly, you can truly design with your learners in mind.

We are now offering a completely 4Door™ experience to learn how to design and develop your own 4Door™ e-learning courses. This asynchronous course can be taken on your own schedule, but only for as long as Thiagi and Matt continue to breathe. You will receive feedback from them on each of your performance test deliverables.

This highly interactive course will provide you with a direct, practical eLearning design and development experience. By the end of the course, you will:

  1. Discover how the 4Door™ Approach is faster, cheaper, and better.
  2. Make a business case for using the 4Door™ Approach in your organization.
  3. Make an evidence-based case for using the 4Door™ Approach in your organization.
  4. Complete a course outline for your own eLearning course.
  5. Design and develop an eLearning course, receiving feedback along the way from Thiagi and Matt.
  6. Identify the best platform to use in your circumstances.
