Jocelyne Turpin, founder of Digital Satellite and Miss Mooc, helps companies and especially SMEs to boost their visibility and develop their business through MOOCs.

UbiCast is delighted to partner with Jocelyne Turpin. Evolving in the same ecosystem and seeking to offer Digital Learning solutions always closer to the needs of businesses and schools, this partnership has become obvious.

For the occasion, the CEO of Digital Satellite answers some questions about the future of training.

Can you introduce yourself?

I help SMEs to boost their business through the power of digital, including using the MOOC. Through this, I help them with their digital transformation using social innovations and awareness. But the best is to go on my “business card in video”.

What are HR’s new challenges?

The stakes of training are in fact part of something much larger: to equip men and women for the world of today and tomorrow, for today’s and tomorrow’s businesses. The stakes are therefore at this level!
Whether you are a company, an institution or an individual, how can you continuously develop your adaptability to a world that is becoming more complex and evolving quickly? The professions are changing, some will disappear and new ones will come. The modes of communication install today more horizontal relations, with a demand of more transparency, reactivity. This impacts organizations, processes, etc.
In short, the stakes are therefore as much human, sociological, economic, societal and so on. “Training” is an essential cross-section of this system.

What is the impact of digital transformation on training?

The digital transformation of an organization is a global approach. Technological evolutions lead to changes in usage, changes in organizations, processes, economic models, etc.
All the services of a company are therefore impacted and should read this mutation in a global way. Training is part of this dynamic. Its uses, its organization, its processes, its economic models, its actors, are being transformed… The MOOCs are, in my opinion, the tip of the iceberg that exceed and materialize a convergence of these transformations.

What are the advantages and limitations of digital learning?

Digital learning and face-to-face training are complementary modalities that serve the expected results for both the trainees and the company. In a context of global training, it will therefore sometimes be relevant to use distance training, sometimes face-to-face.

The first major advantage of digital learning for individuals, is synthesized under the acronym “ATAWADAC”: Any Time, Anywhere, Any Device, Any Content, in other words, to be trained at any time, from where you want, on any medium, with any content.

Another advantage in my opinion is its ability to connect hundreds of people on the same content, to create social learning synergies via communities. In short, it can offer upward production spaces for trained people and thus contribute to organizations with pools of collective ideas.

The third big advantage, especially for the company, is the data. Still very little used today, it is a true reservoir of information. In the service of the trained person it allows to go to a fine personalization. For the company, it is valuable information, if it is anticipated and analyzed.

The limits of digital learning: when it is used in this right place, I do not see any 😉

So HR is changing? what are the new skills?

The training professions are changing … yes, more or less;)
The approach aimed at training adults through active pedagogy is even more relevant with distance learning. The heart of an “active pedagogy” approach is to focus on the needs of the learner … today, with distance learning, it is an obligation! If you do not consider what will motivate the participants to come back and connect several times on a training course, your retention rates will certainly be very low.

On the form, actually it does change! Today, the range of training professions has expanded considerably.

In synthesis it must now be able to cover technological management and innovation, pedagogical engineering mixing in global devices of face-to-face and remote training, animation “learning” of massive community. etc

Why use video?

In the ATAWADAC mentioned, there is “Any content”. Video is today part of these strong contents of digital learning.

It helps to make a subject digestible. In this, the video strongly facilitates the appropriation by the trained people of the subject. In addition, it has another essential attraction; that of handing over the “human, social dose” in a distance modality. This remains necessary for the women and men that we are.
In short, it is today an element indispensable (even if it is not everything)!

Why a partnership with UbiCast?

I am delighted with this partnership.
Via Digital Satellite, I help companies to change their practice (in this context of digital transformation) especially with the implementation of MOOC. So I use a lot of video. This partnership with Ubicast allows me to cross the traditional video production (go filming on the spot with a director in the companies), with the massive production of a studio. For my clients, it’s a real budget and time benefit.

On the other hand the UbiCast’s player is an additional tool that comes serve another thing that is important to me: a quality social learning. Broadcast a video while being able to easily find it, to exchange and complete it by sharing other content with other participants is simply in total adequacy with the future of training, it should already be usedeverywhere!
