JULY 18, 2009 The Evidence on Online Education
Clive Shepherd tweeted a link to this research report: The Evidence on Online EducationThe study found that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through face-to-face instruction. Further, those who took "blended" courses -- those that combine elements of online learning and face-to-face instruction -- appeared to.

NOVEMBER 26, 2009 KnowHow to KnowNow
What a difference one letter change makes to that old term “knowhow”. KnowHow meant retaining knowledge in your head so you could apply it at some undefined point in time in the future. While clearly there are basic skills and knowledge that we need to retain internally it is often a fallacy to think that short term, event driven training will be retained long enough, and in a good enough state, Tags: education Memory KnowNow UPS performance support

SEPTEMBER 16, 2009 How to build a social learning culture
I was asked by Trainingzone to provide some tips for bringing the learning benefits to bear of social tools within an organisational context. All comments/feedback welcome. Resisting the rush to social media feels a bit like trying to push water back up a waterfall doesn't it? fairly futile exercise. Why is it so popular? Well, homo sapiens are a particularly social

SEPTEMBER 29, 2009 Onboarding staff in the 21st century
The British Computer Society (BCS) and IT Training Magazine have published my article on how onboarding new staff can be transformed in terms of overall time to full productivity and dramatically reduced training costs. As the economy picks up the quality and efficiency of induction will matter more than ever. What do you think? How we work and who we work for is.

LARS IS LEARNING iTunes U better than attending class?
| FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2009
ReadWriteWeb and New Scientist picked up on a preliminary piece of research that suggests better retention and learning is achieved through using an audio podcast of a lecture than actually attending it.To find out how much students really can learn from podcast lectures alone - mimicking a missed class - McKinney's team presented 64 students with a single lecture on visual perception, from an.

LARS IS LEARNING Learning - augmented
| WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2009
I’ve previously posted on how we are beginning to move from training as a separate activity from doing, to a model of primarily supporting practice and performance on the job. Ubiquitous Performance Support (UPS) I rather snappily called it. One dramatic example of how this is developing is in the nascent area of Augmented Reality. This clip amply illustrates where this is heading. While MORE >>
LARS IS LEARNING Move aside CPD, UPS is here.

This article originally appeared in Training Journal in June 2009
(PDF). In it I coin the term Ubiquitous Performance Support (UPS) as a better description of how workplace place learning will develop in the future. Comments welcome. Lars Hyland investigates how Continuous Professional Development is being transformed by digital connectivity and. MORE >>
LARS IS LEARNING Doodling, multitasking and memory
| SUNDAY, MARCH 15, 2009
A nice little Doodle by Lee. This behaviour is undoubtedly not limited to toddlers - just watch an episode of The Apprentice or spend some time in any large organisation. Interestingly, the act of doodling (like the example above, but of course they come in all shapes and sizes and colours), often perceived as a sign of boredom and disengagement, is actually a highly effective means of enhancing.

LARS IS LEARNING A mobile future for communications and learning
| MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that the Handheld Learning conference is a far more vibrant community of Twitter users than the recent WOLCE attendees. You can get a great sense of the presentations, even get to review them and discover new things in ways which seem almost better than actually attending yourself. One great find was this recent video put together to support the MOCOM 2020. MORE >>
