Organizing Content: PPT, Index Cards, Other Methods?

Experiencing eLearning

On one of my recent projects, I had a series of videos to intersperse throughout a course. I had an outline in the design document, but when I started actually developing it, I realized the structure wasn’t quite right. I was struggling a bit to figure out how to organize the pieces. The orange blocks are videos; the blue blocks are content pieces. Do you just reorder the text in Word?

eLearning: A Bit of Inspiration

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by AJ George  It's been a little while since I've hit you with a dose of unsolicited inspiration, so here you go. HTML5 Learner Integration. Fair warning: you may get this mediocre pop song stuck in your head. But pop song aside; check out this Jasmine Villegas's Internet Explorer-sponsored music video to show how using HTML5 can produce some really interesting viewer interaction. What if we incorporated this into our eLearning? Dispersed throughout could be content-relative games. Imagine how fun (and interactive) learning could be then. Also, link]. How's it work?

How Workplace ‘Strength Training’ Produces Top Performers

Mindflash

If your employees already have strong skill sets in key areas of job performance, shouldn’t training programs focus on developing new skills or correcting weaknesses? Nope. A new study from Gallup suggests that workplace training should focus on deepening the talents someone already has — and stay away from trying to turn every employee into an ideally-rounded performer. The new research contradicts what seems like common sense, finding that training to your preexisting skills makes good sense. Better performance, lower turnover. Yes, Haralalka and Tung say.

X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design

Clark Quinn

It’s come up in a couple of ways how my (in progress) activity-based framework for learning is related to other models, e.g. performance-based learning. And, looking around, I am reminded that there’s a plethora of models that have overlap.  I’ll try to sort them out. This will undoubtedly be an ever-growing list, as there seems to be X-based learning where X = anything , and I’m sure folks supportive of their approach will let me know ;).

Sim Mind, Beginner’s Mind

Enspire Learning

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.”. Shunryu Suzuki. Is it easier to train a beginner or an expert? need only reflect on my repeated failure to learn a foreign language in my adult years in order to answer this question. I’ve studied both Spanish and French, but whenever I encounter French or Spanish speakers, I must arduously translate the words and sentences I happen to recognize into English in order to understand them. Well-designed simulations are like these foreign countries I imagine moving to.
