Learner Guides

All the elaborate details in one place.

A detailed and well-drafted learner guide is the key to a successful Instructor-Led Training (ILT) or Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) program. A learner guide is also commonly known as a participant guide or student guide. While most learner guides are distributed as hard copies, they may also be available as soft copies via PDFs.

A hard copy of these guides is distributed among the learners during their classes while a soft copy is easily found on the sources’ Learning Management System (LMS).

For students to sail smoothly in their chosen form of education, learner guides are instrumental for reference. A learner’s guide is a significant added benefit for students to work around their class in case they miss any lectures. While faculties may refer to the learner’s guide during the classroom session to explain the topics, students can also refer to the guide later to revise the topics. At Stylus, we develop training materials i.e create learner guides with the aim to provide learners with additional reference material apart from what is discussed in class.

These guides also include analogies and everyday examples so learners can easily relate to the topic. We ensure that complex concepts are broken down into simpler topics so that students can comprehend the subject at hand. At the end of each chapter, we provide a summary section along with objective and subjective assessments to help students gauge their progress.

Our guides extensively cover the entire course of a corporate training solution providing insightful notes for each topic. Our writers who are guided by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) incorporate training strategies including activities, assessments, exercises and presentations, among others. Being a leading learning and development consultancy, we ensure that the content in these guides is 100% original, unique as well as up-to-date. Our team of graphic designers complement our writers by adding fun elements that are relevant to the content.

A learner’s guide generally includes:

  • Syllabus
  • Objectives
  • Learning outcomes
  • Content regarding the main topic
  • Infographics and illustrations
  • Assessments and Questions
  • Activities
  • Additional Information
  • References
  • Summary

These guides are instrumental resources to help learners gain an understanding of the topic. They focus on the content and concepts significant to the purpose of learning in the course. At Stylus, we develop training materials to ensure that they cover the subject in detail and also provide activities, revisions and exercises that encourage the learning process and help assess if the learner can proceed to the next level. In addition, we provide quick tips and tricks to help the learner during and after the course. Our guides also include activities to encourage teamwork and improve communication, collaboration and participation.

While we are the corporate training solutions have a team of experts to write the respective topics, we also have SMEs to review the content for accuracy. Once the training development content is approved by the SMEs, our team of editors review the guides for language and grammar. Once the guides are internally signed-off, they are shared with the client for one or two rounds of feedback. Our team is quick to implement any feedback provided and also ensures that the feedback points are incorporated into the next set of deliverables.

If you need to develop training materials for your organization, let Stylus be your guiding force.
