In our new training series, your employees dive into the whirlpool of phishing. They cross the shallows of the ocean, reefs, caves and harbours - all with the aim of getting to the bottom of phishing attacks. Learning can be this exciting.
Christian Laber is Head of E-Learning Development at G DATA and the creative mind behind the trainings focusing on phishing. Here he explains the advantages of the interactive format and the storytelling approach for the learning success of your employees.
In many companies, learning time equals working time. How does the G DATA academy deal with this challenge?
Christian Laber: "Learning while working - this very point encouraged us to trim our new formats to maximise learning transfer. On this basis, we have created trainings that are highly interactive and exciting."
The courses make full use of storytelling. Why does that make sense?
Christian Laber: "Since phishing is a very important and also extensive topic in the area of awareness training, we decided to divide the whole thing into episodes that build on each other. The experience is similar to streaming a series. We remember content best, which we link with stories and images. A format that covers each of these aspects: character-based storytelling. Through this approach, we create a practical and sustainable way of sharing knowledge."
Is that why the courses also seem like a computer game at times?
Christian Laber: "Exactly. We are targeting intrinsic motivation here. That is, the motivation that we project onto certain processes or situations out of an inner drive. We create this motivation by creating a format that offers a sense of purpose through, for example, a certain objective. Games create exactly that. They work with images, they offer a high level of interaction, they provide a goal that is 'played towards'. All in all, games offer exactly the format that best conveys our training vision."
