If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? We’ve all heard this before yet it’s rarely applied to SAP training. With eight hour days in a lecture hall, it’s no wonder the minds of attendees begin to wander. People are rubbing their eyes, peering out windows, and doodling in the margins of their notes. It begs the question: how much of this information will anyone retain?
Researchers have been studying exactly this issue for decades, and the human mind is limited in its capacity to learn. Results have consistently shown the human mind can only store an average of seven words or digits at once (ever wonder why phone numbers are seven numbers, not including area code?). Additionally, one can only recall a series of three to four longer strings of information at a time, such as sentences. Whether it’s new vocabulary, a series of click processes, or long-form directions, memory is finite.
Now think about SAP. It has a whole lot more to memorize than seven digits and four phrases. So why is it people spend 8 hours a day over the course of a week to get their SAP training? It’s a proven ineffective means of teaching any topic, never-the-less one as complex as SAP. Even with notes, the material is difficult to recall and digging through days of instructions eats up valuable work time.
Luckily there’s another way to learn SAP that follows modern research. Students using SAP eLearning can complete lessons at their own pace. Taking time if they’re learning new material, or clicking through if they already know it-- it’s entirely up to the SAP course-taker. This allows material to settle into mind without being rushed by an instructor.
Furthermore, SAP online training at Michael Management Corporation is repeatable. Flipping through notes for SAP processes is not as effective as a hands-on approach with lessons that function like a real SAP GUI. By repeating the more difficult lessons you can not only ace the final exam for certification, but also store the lesson material in your long-term memory.
In this modern age of eLearning, why are we still delivering SAP training in classrooms? Learning SAP online follows current research on best practices for memory recall, so there’s no more staring out the window or doodling in class. Unless, of course, you want to.
