The Human Element of Online Learning

Written By: Lance Piatt

I thought I would jot a few ideas pertaining to online learning and some of the thoughts from our membership.  During these last few months, more and more teams and organizations have taken advantage of Rigging Lab Academy’s library and positioning in the field of rescue and rigging.  I have received dozens of comments with respect to the technical components of the courses, however, what has intrigued me has been the “human elements” of “studying remote”.

As I began to process the feedback forms I began to see a very interesting pattern forming – the functionality of learning started to take on a more simplistic form of “peace” (a lessening of disturbance and disorder). During my follow-up with folks, the apparent lack of continuity within the instructional framework (at the station) was highlighted.  It wasn’t that what was happening was bad, moreover what RLA brought to the table was a fresh set of eyes, ears, and voice and made what they had better.

Here are a few of the descriptive ingredients we received –

  • Simplifies the process
  • Convenient
  • Reduces our effort
  • Greater connection within the team during training
  • Variety
  • Fun and entertaining
  • Organized
  • Huge time savings
  • Reduces cost

When I went over this information with our team there was nothing but smiles and “head-nodding” as we value every one of our members.  To help our members manage their complex environment is critical to everyone’s success.  Understanding how team leaders manage their crews is significant in solving not just the monumental problems and logistics of training but resolving the everyday dramas that happen when events don’t line up well.  Our responses will determine our outcomes, but what happens when the outcomes we need are not the ones we want?  Our endpoint is someone else’s starting point!

I want to encourage everyone to go through The Cornerstone course.  Admittedly it is a work in progress.  Life is meant to be played out, not to be on the sidelines and watch the action.  There are times for sideline action, but this should be for short periods of time only.  Thinking, Learning, and Responding is like using an Easel-A high directional.  We start with 3 legs but need to be able to maneuver and function with one leg.  The gripper here is that even with a gin-pole setup, 3-4 guy-lines are needed for complete stability.  When Rob Stringer was here to film the Vortex Guidebook, our conversations often worked around the life-rigging exchange.

There hasn’t been a single team not positively affected by Rigging Lab Academy and this blesses me to no end!  We are seeing teams with 5-10 and upwards of 250; all of them have had to make modifications to their training protocol in order to make room for something new.  They all did it and are glad for it.

By the way, if you haven’t already done so but plan to make the move the Unlimited Team Membership, the special pricing is good to the end of the month of June.

  13. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be helpful to read through content from other authors and practice a little something from other web sites.

  14. Having read this I believed it was really enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

  15. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you should publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t discuss these topics. To the next! Kind regards.

  16. Right here is the right website for anybody who wishes to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for years. Excellent stuff, just great.
