Enhancing the digital learning experience

Clive on Learning

When we think of a great learning experience with digital content, we tend to think of the way that the content itself is designed – how usable, relevant and engaging it is for learners. But the learning experience is much more than the content as we shall see.

In the classroom - one toolkit, three different roles

Learning and development's two customers

Coaching for learning

Clive on Learning

In their book Transfer of Training, Mary Broad and John Newstrom estimated that merely 10% of the dollars spent on training resulted in actual and lasting behavioural change. And that’s obviously not enough. They did some research into who it was that made the biggest impact on transfer of learning.

Learning is a human experience

Clive on Learning

Humans need humans and never more than when we are learning. As we move from a situation in which most learning is face-to-face to one in which we make use of digital content and perhaps even AI as the vehicle for a learning experience, we don't need to give up on our humanity

Show me the data: the case for learning analytics

Clive on Learning

Data is the fuel that drives effective decision making. Without the right data, you’re relying on guesswork and hoping for the best. Data allows you to accurately assess needs, compare alternative approaches, assess progress and determine results.

Communicating with sound

Clive on Learning

Sound is a medium that matters. Your audience can listen to a podcast or a radio programme while they’re busy doing other things like walking, driving or keeping fit. You can add narration and sound effects to your animations and videos or leave it to music to set the mood.

Exploring the seven Cs

I’ve always been a little suspicious of models in which the titles of the elements share a common initial letter or just happen to spell out a word that sums up the overall message.

Compliance v competence - ten years on

Clive on Learning

I was looking through some old presentations the other day, trying to find some inspiration on the subject of compliance training, and I found this one. I was amazed to find that it was 10 years old and that there wasn't really anything about it I'd change.

When performance support trumps learning

Clive on Learning

In the past year, I have worked with clients on a number of projects in which the sole focus has been supporting employees in adapting to a change by providing resources that they could access at the point of need – a process that we normally call ‘performance support’.

Design for learning – what’s in a name?

Clive on Learning

‘A rose by any other name would smell so sweet.’ So goes the the line from Romeo and Juliet, implying that the name you put to something is much less important than the characteristics of that thing. While this is certainly true of roses, it may not apply so well to people.

Let’s face it, compliance is not the same as learning

Clive on Learning

A while back I did something quite unusual. I completed a self-study e-learning programme, as a student, not as a consultant running their eye over someone else's work. Some time later, having had the chance to reflect on the experience, I can't resist making a few comments.
