Kapp Notes

One area of the United States economy that is hiring is the FBI. In fact, due to retirments of the boomers and attrition.they need more than a few good men/women. They need a lot! This is just the first of many agencies in the Government that are going to need a lot more people because of retirements. The FBI posted openings for 850 special agents and more than 2,100 professional support personnel.

ZaidLearn: Use Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for Writing Learning Outcomes

ZaidLearn

Do you have problems writing learning outcomes/objectives for your content or courses? Or more specifically, do you have trouble finding the right ACTION VERBS to describe what you want your students to achieve from the course, module, topic or unit? Have you tried using Bloom's Taxonomy wheel(s) before to assist finding those magic action verbs? Trust me! It is helpful, but to me it is misleading.

ADDIE is dead! Long live ADDIE!

In 2001 that frustration was given voice in the seminal article “The Attack on ISD” by Jack Gordon and Ron Zemke in Training Magazine. I’m at risk of flogging a very dead horse here, but some recent posts from Ellen Wagner (What is it about ADDIE that makes people so cranky?) Don responded with some great comments on how ISD (ADDIE) has evolved and adapted. HATE (Phase A, Step 3.2.6).

Why do Learners Drop Out of a Course?

TalentLMS

Research indicates that the failed attrition rate for undergraduate courses in the US ranges between 20 – 50% (Frankola, 2001). Recent work by Patterson and McFadden (2009) indicated that dropout rates in online courses may be six to seven times higher when compared to traditional courses. Despite the best laid plans, the loudest bells and whistles and the loftiest experts in your learning network, learners might enroll only to drop after the first two weeks. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to see the dropout rates of a seemingly perfect course rise above the horizon.

As an industry, we haven’t done our best to make our content-rich websites suitable for learning and exploration. Learners require more from us than keywords and killer headlines.
