What about case studies or mini-documentaries?

Opening Pandora's box

Learning with e's

It started off in sedate style a few years ago, when several students began to ask if they could audio record my lectures and seminars to play back later.

Is Your Training Medieval? Make It Modern with Social Learning

ej4 eLearning

All of this makes one wonder why formal learning, particularly corporate training, is stuck in a model that, literally, arose in the Middle Ages. (It’s true: The lecture model of learning, where a single expert recites prepared remarks to a large audience, started in medieval academies and monasteries. To do this efficiently, a teacher would simply recite their copy out loud in a lecture hall for the students to rewrite. In contrast, today’s social media provide a constant stream of content that is updated and delivered as quickly as it can be produced.

eLearning Tech and Trends for 2015

eLearning Chef

Use of video to deliver eLearning will surge due to improved tools, increased bandwidth at less cost, more self-production capabilities, and a strong implementation of video streaming services. The ideal methods of implementing and delivering video for such purposes should be further refined in the coming year. I see a big move to backend streaming implementations, whether implemented by institution/company or larger use of third-party sites like YouTube and Vimeo. SCORM, xAPI, LTI, CMI-5. SCORM will continue to be popular, it’s still far too entrenched. Anything can be tracked?
