How Did You Get Interested in Games for Learning?

Kapp Notes

One question I am frequently asked is “How did you get interested in games for learning?” ” When did you notice that games could play a role in corporate learning? There are a number of incidents that eventually lead to my study of the subject. Some involve watching a poker tournament and learning that online poker was used as a way of practicing for real poker play. But here is a progression over time of my thinking. noticed that games could play a role in corporate learning on my first internship out of college. He needed some people to test the game and I volunteered.

Writing & Grammar: Apostrophes and Pronouns

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Jennie Ruby    The apostrophe can indicate possessive or sometimes plural, as we have recently seen. But wait, there's more: the apostrophe can form a contraction: collapsing two words together and leaving out some letters. Some examples are  could've- -short for  could have --and  must've , which is short for  must have. Pronunciation does not help us with other common errors: mixing up possessive pronouns, contractions, and other homonyms (words that sound alike but have different meanings and/or spellings). Possessive. Contraction. there.

Learning Design: When You Just Don’t Know Where to Start

ADDIE is good, SAM is good. DMADDI is good. AGILE is good. Rapid instructional design is good.

What sort of journalist am I?

Clive on Learning

Having just reached a major milestone birthday (I'll leave you to figure out whether that's 30 or 40), I feel justified in reflecting on the role that blogging is likely to play in the years to come. I've just made major investments in three new all-consuming hobbies - photography, video and piano playing - and I need time to make sure I get a good return on all three. At the same time, there's plenty of demand for my services as a learning technologist (which is what I've recently decided to call myself) so surely something has to give. Well, for now at least, it will not be blogging.

Adobe Captivate 6: When It Comes to Video Color Mode, Every Bit Counts

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel    A student attending a recent  Advanced Captivate 6 online class  was lamenting the poor color quality in her Captivate lessons. She had recorded a lesson using a combination of the Simulation and Video modes. When she previewed her lesson to the class, we could clearly see a shift in color quality between the slides in the simulation part of the lesson and the video portion. The slides themselves looked great. the color in the video was not very good at all.) The lower setting will result in smaller videos. It's a simple process.

I recall back in the early days of our vle here at College one of my selling points was that having materials in digital form would save not only on paper, but also those trips to the print room, and indeed this remains the case.

Should Leaders Communicate or Listen?

CLO Magazine

Some leaders are great communicators, while others are excellent listeners. Great leaders excel at both. Which leadership skill is more vital: being a strong communicator or a great listener? Most believe that great leaders must have both: They should be willing to listen to feedback from key constituents while also being able to articulate a clear and compelling vision. The process, in many instances, works like this: The leaders listen, seek information, buy-in and commitment from stakeholders. Then they consider feedback, using it as a springboard when developing a vision.

Learning with e's

In Lord of the Rings, the wizard Gandalf deliberated and wrestled long and hard to open the doors to the mines of Moria. In the story of Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, the mouth of the cave was opened by uttering the phrase ifta? ya simsim - 'Open Sesame'. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ healed a deaf girl by uttering the word 'Ephratha' - meaning 'be opened'. But it stays the same old problem.
