Happiness is a choice

Jay Cross

This morning I was awakened by Flirt, our 11-pound miniature dachshund, rolling around on her back in ecstasy. Nothing new there: Flirt always wakes up in a joyful mood, squirming with bliss, her wagging tail thumping the mattress. How happy you are depends a lot on how you look at life. The late Gordon MacKenxie  told me to awake every day expecting a miracle. So I copied Flirt. It worked!

Over the next little while, I’ll be engaging with some bloggers and L&D folks around the world to explore this, in a kind of blog-tour. First up is a former colleague who has moved to Berlin. I’ll let him tell his story in the next post. Got ideas for how we could explore technology around the world?

Learning 2012: what worked, what didn’t, even better if…?

Good To Great

Learning 2012, held in late October in Florida, was my first experience of a non-UK conference (in fact my first trip to the USA!), and it was quite an experience. What worked. For me, the most significant aspect of this conference in terms of distinguishing it from others was the approach to the keynote sessions. Ordinarily, a keynote consists of a talented speaker standing on a stage and delivering a well-rehearsed speech for an hour, followed by some Q&A if there’s time. really liked this structure. also loved the conference guide.

Choosing the Right SCORM Settings in your Rapid Intake Quizzes

Developer on Duty

When you're using a quiz to determine the completion status sent to the LMS, there are many options that you can choose. The 2 most common ways to utilize a quiz in this manner are: 1.      Have the course register complete once a learner has finished the quiz. 2.      Have the course send a complete status once the learner achieves a certain score on the quiz. Knowing exactly what you want before hand will make this process much quicker.  You can choose either of these options in the Record Lesson Status menu and the Passing Score feild, which can be found under Step 4: LMS Settings.
