Developing Personalized Learning Paths

At Ease Learning, we prioritize learner-centered engagement and use Universal Design for Learning (UDL) methods to meet the needs of all learners. By focusing on outcomes, we design the learner’s path for better performance. Our approach reduces friction and ensures engaged learners, leading to better outcomes, higher retention, and practical application of knowledge in real-world scenarios. As a result, your engaged learners will become your top performers, staying with you for continued success.

“This work has illustrated mapping of existing nursing content to the draft AACN Essentials through the Skillways platform.  This offers us a way to move toward competency-based education by truly modularizing our content for small-bite delivery because we can measure progress toward outcomes as students proceed along individual paths.”

Learning Design Frameworks

COMPETENCY-BASED ASSESSMENTS

Competency-based assessments are evaluations designed to measure an individual's ability to apply specific skills, knowledge, and behaviors to perform tasks effectively in real-world scenarios. These assessments focus on demonstrating actual competencies rather than merely theoretical understanding.

Benefits:

Real-World Relevance

Personalized Learning

Clear Benchmarks

Enhanced Motivation

Improved Outcomes

Learning Design ASLU

AUTHENTICATED SKILLS LEARNING UNITS (ASLU)

An Authenticated Skills™ Learning Unit (ASLU) is a microlearning unit focused on mastery of in-demand skills targeted to specific career pathways. 

ASLUs are designed in collaboration with an employer and driven by employer requirements. They can be licensed for reuse.

Following a pre-assessment, learners are led to practice areas—or, if they’re ready, a final demonstration of skills.

Once performance on a skills-aligned assessment meets criteria, learners achieve skill competence.

Interactive Learning Objects (ILOs)

To ensure that key learning outcomes are met, Ease Learning boosts learning engagement and retention of concepts with the use of interactive learning objects.

Custom media can be added to new or existing programs and a variety of approaches are possible to enhance key outcomes. Some examples include:

Tutorials

Case studies

Knowledge checks

Interactive graphs and scenarios

Media provides an interactive learning experience using audio, video, text, and animations to guide learners through a variety of interactive elements.
