In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss how to get at what potential learning customers actually want – versus what they need – by exploring four key areas of gathering and assessing data including: understanding your demand dynamics, assessing behavior (not preferences), identifying key value factors, and gauging commitment and conversion ­(not interest).

Highlighted Resource – Market Insight Matrix – a free Tagoras tool that lays out a framework for continually monitoring and assessing your market over time. It’s a great complement to the discussion in this episode about identifying the “wants” as opposed to just the needs in your market.

Tracy King, founder of InspirEd and Aaron Wolowiec, founder of Event Garde, are both experts in learning design and they recently joined forces to help answer this complex question. Their research and findings related to the topic are captured in the e-book they co-authored, Engaging Learners: A Guide To Successfully Designing Engaging Learning.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Tracy and Aaron about the topic of learner engagement—including what it is and, just as importantly, what it isn’t—how to prime learners for engagement, and the importance of “constructing” learning experiences versus “manufacturing” them.
