Get to Know Otto

Truly personalized, agile microlearning™

Simply tell Otto what each learner needs to know, how deeply they need to know it, and for how long they should retain it.  Otto will take care of the rest.

Microlearning

Bite-sized content that engages your learners.

Adaptive Training

Algorithms that detect and eliminate knowledge gaps.

Spaced Repetition

Two-minute sessions to make training stick.

Learners can do extra Mini Moments at any time to explore content or deepen their mastery. You’ll be impressed by how your learners will choose to increase their mastery themselves.

The real rapid authoring tool

Microlearning content should be as quick and easy to create as it is for learners to use. With OttoLearn, it is. Otto’s integrated Content Studio lets you create and deploy content shockingly fast.

Content Studio

Create new content, retire old material, or update existing content at any time. OttoLearn evolves with your business and training needs.

OttoLearn Knowledge Map

Visualize your content with a beautiful Knowledge Map.

Otto organizes content in Learning Modules. Each Module can have an associated Knowledge Card, which learners can access as a built-in performance support.

You can create a learning path (scaffolded learning) by putting your Learning Modules into a logical sequence that delivers your training in the proper order.

Within a Learning Module, Topics allow you to group knowledge together. You can require learners to master one topic before getting the next.

You decide how detailed you want your training to be. Does the learner need only a general understanding of “Handling Objections” or to more deeply understand it?”

Focus on what matters! Most traditional elearning courses are full of non-essential information. OttoLearn allows you to focus on your most important content without all the extra fluff.  

This precision will deepen learner knowledge, resulting in the changes in learner behavior that mark the success of your training program.

Activities are short, fun interactions, where learners exercise their knowledge related to the concept.

Your learner's mastery is tracked at the Activity level, and we automatically have your learners practice with different Activities per concept.

Scaffolded learning

OttoLearn includes multiple ways to design scaffolded training experiences, to engage your learners and take them from Novice to Master.

  • Mastery Pre-requisite
  • Sequential Exploration
  • Layered Importance

Knowledge cards

OttoLearn’s knowledge cards are the perfect performance support.

Search or browse by category

Otto tracks all searches and knowledge card interactions, and correlates it to your learners' mastery. This allows you to see where your learners are spending time looking up knowledge and how learners gain independence as their mastery increases.

Discover areas of improvement

Otto will analyze your learners searches to discover areas of knowledge that need to be supported. A learner can see their corresponding mastery for each knowledge card area, and choose to increase their recall through extra Mini Moments.

Gamification

Coming Fall 2020.

Three different gamification screens, staggered. One displaying earned and unearned badges; one showing a leaderboard of learners; and one that exhibits gems you can collect and the items you could purchase with those gems.
  • Earn Mastery Points by learning and retaining training
  • Customizable leaderboards for accountability and to show peer to peer progress
  • Custom badges to award your learner’s achievements
  • A reward store for your learners to trade their points for prizes such as gift cards
