" -- Albert Einstein After attending  Edward Tufte's seminar (that I wrote about last week) , it got me thinking about being authoritarian with an audience.   No Next Button: Some Examples. by AJ George  "It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education." Tufte admonished the use of the "slow reveal" in PowerPoint presentations, suggesting instead that if you must use bullet points (he advises against using them altogether), present all your information--clearly and at once. I In theory I understand this.

How to Create Clear Learning Objectives

Association eLearning

Firstly, learners can read the learning objectives for an eLearning course or training seminar and decide whether they want to take it. Prove it by fulfilling the learning objectives using the comments section. I’m looking forward to seeing your sample learning objectives. The phrase “learning objectives” gets thrown around a lot in discussions about training and development. Courses are supposed to have learning objectives, competencies should be related to them, quiz questions should assess how well they’ve been met, and more. But what are learning objectives? Look familiar?

Stop Relying on Training for Employee Learning

The Peformance Improvement

Formal, event-based training (courses, workshops, seminars, MOOCs) has a place in corporate learning but only a small place and only for employee learning that can’t be achieved in other, more timely, less costly, and more effective ways. For example, employees need to be able to respond to workplace, life-threatening accidents that can’t be anticipated and might never occur.

Saffron to denounce the ‘dinosaur LMS’ at LTSF

Spicy Learning

In a free seminar at tomorrow’s Learning Technologies Summer Forum, Saffron (Stand 20) will ask why we put up with LMS products and content repositories which are ten years behind the sites learners actually use.

The seminar will explain: Why the ‘enterprise LMS’ is a decade (or more) behind the sites which learners actually use.

It is common for companies to say that their mission and values are in their DNA. This used to sound good from a marketing perspective but makes no sense today. Same can be said for employee learning.

How eLearning can work in the legal industry


Scheduling seminars in all those places, besides being costly and a huge time-sink to manage, leaves lawyers and staff in each office learning something different, as instructor skills can vary widely, and even the same instructor might skip some important points or change his delivery.

Dont Waste Your Time

methods. I am not saying they should change. I am not saying their way is wrong or outdated or inefficient. I am saying that a point-blank refusal to take, for example, negative feedback on board and consider the student’s learning journey to improve the learning materials is obstructive, not just for the module, but for the course, department, and, more importantly, the student success.

Negative Reinforcement is Good!


classic example is when a child gets in trouble and has something taken away by their parents, such as computer privileges, in order to prevent that behavior from happening again. An alarm clock is a good example. For example, any employee who completes the compliance course before the end of the month doesn’t have to attend the live half-day training seminar.

How MOOCs Can Solve Common Training Problems

Your Training Edge

This can be the result of many different factors—learners might not find the information valuable or relevant, the training might be too advanced or too easy for the audience, or the seminar room simply might be too warm and the instructor’s voice too soothing. Take, for example, compliance training, which has a reputation for being particularly painful. Copyright 2014 Bryant Nielson.
