Video Production and Learner Engagement in MOOCs

Your Training Edge

This finding will probably come as a surprise: Learners engaged more with informal video lectures delivered by an instructor seated behind a desk than with videos produced in a multimillion dollar studio and featuring an instructor standing behind a podium. One of the most significant advantages MOOCs have over ILT and traditional elearning is in how the content is delivered.

Keeping Video Learners Engaged

While the person behind the podium speaks, the camera will cut after about five seconds to a journalist writing in her notebook for five seconds and then cut back to the speaker. In my last post , I discussed why it’s important to change shots in video—what I call the “Change Principle.” If you didn’t catch this post, here’s a quick summary. Music.

What Buying a Bicycle Would Look Like if We Applied a Typical LMS Selection Strategy

Absorb LMS

When making any significant purchase it’s normal to go through a thoughtful consideration of your options. For example, there’s more to choosing the bicycle that’s right for you than having two wheels that spin. Then an ultra-light carbon-fiber road bike may be right for you.

Learning must occur in an ecosystem where each individual can both learn and teach

Learning Wire

Traditional formal learning environments have long placed an expert on a podium, who in turn tend to consider learners as sponges needing to absorb his/her expertise.

I feel like I have a great shot to get on the podium again.” But he used that need to push the Olympic star, and push him hard, to propel himself on to the podium. It was one of those truly remarkable 2016 Olympic moments in Rio. Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, Olympic gold medalist, sprinted across the finish line first in the 200m semi-final, with Canada’s Andre DeGrasse right at his side. Finish times in the heat: Bolt, 19.78 seconds; DeGrasse, 19.80. Two one-hundredths of a second. The best part?

Mobile Learning: No iPhone required

Bottom-Line Performance

One of the most interesting sessions was given by Dr. Cesar Bandera of Cell Podium. As Lisa previously posted, several of us went to the annual SALT conference at the beginning of March. Some of the sessions I was most interested in were the ones on mobile learning. I haven’t ever used my cell to actually learn anything and was interested to see what others in the field were doing in the area. A few things I learned: There weren’t very many examples of real learning (I now know something that I didn’t before and can use that knowledge) shared.

The area around the podium is lit. The ThoughtWorks University sessions started yesterday. An induction with a difference (many differences), it was a refreshing experience for a "veteran" like me.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
