[Video] Skill-driven matching: Focus on the automatic approach efficiency

The matching of learners and training content consists in connecting learner profiles with adapted training. But how much time does skill-driven matching save?





The main advantage of the skill-driven matching is the considerable time savings it provides. Explanation with the hypothetical case of 50 courses and 50 learners:


  • The first step in the process is to “map” both the learner profiles and the training content: since there are thousands of skills to choose from, this exercise can be very time consuming. Even for the fastest manual standardization one could imagine (5 minutes per learner or course), the mapping phase would take 500 minutes by hand (50 x 5 + 50 x 5 = 500), which is a little more than a day of work.


  •  The second step in the process is to “match” learners and training content: assuming that manual matching can be done in 1 minute, it would take 42 hours to evaluate the 2,500 learner-course pairs.


  • In total, it represents more than a week of work for the mapping and matching phases done manually. In comparison, with our technology, these two phases take only 5 minutes.
