How Does Qstream Microlearning Work?


Microlearning based on science and driven by data.

Qstream’s mobile microlearning solution is used by hundreds of customers to develop employee proficiency, help managers support their team with precision coaching and provide business and learning leaders with a way to measure training investments and hone future training and development needs. Here’s how…

Step One

Identify Topics

What are your training objectives and success measures for improving job proficiency? Program managers often use Qstream as part of a holistic knowledge and skills development program to change employee behaviors and ultimately meet unique business or organizational goals.

Step Two

Create Content

Once learning goals and topics are established, it’s now time to develop scenario-based questions, answer choices, video scenarios and explanations. Qstream questions are designed to challenge critical thinking.  The Qstream Client Services Team will guide you through the content development process by sharing best practices and providing content review, feedback, recommendations and reference material.

Step Three

Launch Qstream

Before launching your first Qstream challenge, be sure to communicate with participants, managers and leadership so they know what’s coming and to encourage engagement. Then, keep them updated during the Qstream by sharing updates on progress, recognizing top performers and highly engaged participants and teams. Plus, encourage managers to take action on coaching actions to help their team out.

Step Four

Action Qstream Insights

From the Qstream challenge responses, thousands of data points are processed and presented to management via real-time dashboards, proficiency heatmaps, stats, graphs and video scenarios. This information allows managers to analyze and take remedial action where there are knowledge gaps. Proficiency heatmaps also show initial and current proficiency against any reporting parameter to measure training effectiveness and guide future training needs.
