Online Training: How Big is Too Big?

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by AJ George  In the early days of software training, many professional trainers that I've talked with said that the perfect onsite class size was eight to 10 students. For groups of 10 or more, it was a standard practice to bring in a backup trainer. The role of the backup trainer was to assist any students who might have fallen behind the instructor, or simply assist those students in need of a bit of extra help. If the class size was larger than 15 students, many training companies would split the class into manageable sizes, requiring multiple rooms and multiple lead instructors.

Living with Complexity

Clark Quinn

Don Norman (disclaimer, my PhD advisor and mentor) has had a string of important books, starting with his stellar  Design of Everyday Things (tops my ‘recommended books’ list for designers). His latest, Living with Complexity , is not as landmark a book as that, but it has some very astute thinking to present. Complexity at the front end offers powerful choice at the tradeoff of comprehensibility, which we often want. Complexity at the back end can seem like magic, but offers more opportunity for things to go wrong catastrophically. Recommended for the advanced designer.

Benefits of using online assessments

ProProfs

Learning at all stages requires some form of assessment. Even in adult learning progress must be measured in some way. Teachers must find out how well a student has learned regardless of the level and subject of study. Many teachers find frequent, low-stakes assessments an effective way to measure knowledge. Other educators use only mid-term and final assessments within a course. Regardless, these assessments take time to create, administer and grade. So how can educators streamline the assessment process? One answer to streamlining assessments is to use online quiz tools. Course benefits.
