An e-learning chemistry lesson: how to mix text and audio

Good To Great

I came away from last week’s eLearning Network event on rich media with a long list of takeaway lessons, things to try and topics to explore further. (I wasn’t the only one, as the Twitter backchannel shows.) One of these is the enduring question of how to use text and audio within e-learning, which prompted some debate and some interesting experiment results. We also had to identify the other element that it is most compatible with (simultaneously, as opposed to sequentially throughout an e-learning course). This opened up the discussion about the relationship between text and audio.

Anti-bribery training: what you really need to know

Spicy Learning

As compliance managers and training managers will (hopefully) already be aware, the Bribery Act 2010 will be coming into effect on 1 st July this year.

It can, as with any legislation, be difficult to identify the absolute key points amongst the pages and pages of legal language. This is especially true because bribery itself and bribery legislation are nothing new. It’s tough. But don’t panic just yet.

When I was talking with Amber about keynoting mLearnCon she mentioned that App Central was in the works but I was not allowed to say anything. Now that the show is airing (in Canada) it's safe for me to talk. The bad news is that it's only available to Canadians. The good news is that you can watch segments on the BNN web site. The show is fast-paced fun and VERY educational. Those of you that know me, know of my early video broadcasting/production career. That curse makes me highly sensitive to production value.
