Apple products that show the pinnacle of this kind of thinking are great--the iPhone is designed to "know" whether you are holding it up to your ear or have brought it down to look at the screen, and it shows you what you need to see in order to click, hang up, enter numbers, or whatever. by Jennie Ruby    Right now design is all the rage. Companies are promoting designers to the CEO level (design-e-o's?), If creating easy-to-use, intuitive products is by design, then by all means give me more design. Cartoons have become flat.

Writing & Grammar: Confusing Words for 600

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

  Peak  can be a verb or a noun, and always indicates a pinnacle or high point. by Jennie Ruby    This week's confusing words pop up often in writing about training, creating a minefield of potential spelling errors. First, let's look at  lead  versus  led.    Lead  is a toxic element formerly found in gasoline and other products. It is also the common term for the graphite in pencils.

Learning is a lot more than schooling

That’s got to stop, for schooling is an increasingly obsolete exercise in rote learning and the world is getting way too complicated to rely on schools and school models (think instructors, courses, schedules, tests, lectures) as the pinnacle learning.

Merging Purpose with Design in the World of Gamification

Training Industry

Mastery by game is the pinnacle and most complex aspect of gamification. Gamification and gamified elements have been a hot topic for the last year or two. However, too much of the conversation stays at the superficial level of how to make learning fun, without delving into the real reasons gamification works to change behavior. We see fun as a means to encourage, support and change critical behaviors. So why is gamification now a critical part of our tool box? This definition highlights gamification’s reliance on digital technology and the design of the user experience.

Mobile apps for editing video like iMovie, Vitrimpro or Pinnacle are cost effective and easy to use. Web video, as a means to deliver educational content, is clearly an idea whose time has come.

Gamification for Enterprises

Your Training Edge

The recent introduction of gamification is what I believe to be the pinnacle of design and creativity to enhance the user experience within a simulated environment. Forrester Research ( [link] ) recently released a new study that highlights the fact that companies just don’t understand the concept of gamification well enough in order to make it work to their advantage. In the study, Forrester states that a company investing in gamification needs to know who their target audience is and what that audience finds as valuable. Is a much more participatory experience.

For the past year or so, massive open online courses (MOOCs) have been busy upending all kinds of assumptions about education: content is king, quality education is expensive, and instructor-led training is the gold standard, to name just a few.

What Can We Learn From Toyota?

The Peformance Improvement

The point is that the climb often requires a distinct, unyielding philosophy, while setting up shop on the pinnacle requires something else entirely, like the ability to absorb some punishment. What can we learn from Toyota’s fall from grace? This company, that for the past two decades has been the benchmark for quality, has suddenly had severe damage done to its worldwide reputation and probably to its market share. Toyota seemed to be doing everything right in terms of high performance. Toyota’s problem seems to go much deeper than that. That is the Toyota way.
