mLearning: Smartphone statistics and the impact they have on learning

Zephyr Learning

We are all aware of the growth of the smartphone industry and whether consciously or not, are now witnessing the impact this is having on learning. Mobile learning (mlearning) has been around for a long time and I remember seeing the first mlearning course on a ‘Palm’ PDA in 2002.

Emotions Controlled

Zephyr Learning

Some people would say that the word ‘Control’ could be interpreted as negative or aggressive. While this may be true, when we talk about emotional intelligence it becomes an incredibly important word, especially around expressing emotions.

Shaping an eLearning Solution

Zephyr Learning

Developing elearning tends to focus on three areas – content, design and technology, which really is a given, but there is no strategic substance to focus our vision and desired outcomes.

What is eLearning? Part 2 – eLearning: More than a Word!

Zephyr Learning

From time to time we hear the requests – “we need elearning” or “we need to change our elearning”, which I always follow up with the question, Why? Interestingly this question becomes a slight stumbling block.

State of the Front-Line Manager

It's no secret that front-line managers are essential to your organization's success. They form the base of your leadership development funnel and, most likely, account for over half of all your organization's leaders. Improving how front-line managers perform yields mouthwatering increases in how individual contributors perform.

eLearning Part 3 – What does elearning look like today?

Zephyr Learning

The shape of elearning is constantly changing. With recent developments in media technology, elearning will start a new evolution that will be influenced by key drivers such as smartphone technology. This is not to say that elearning as we know it will no longer be viable.

I read an article yesterday on GrapevineHR, thanks to our good friends at @elearn_centre! The short article discussed the issue of UK businesses failing to use elearning to its full potential.

eLearning Part 4 – Learner Perceptions and eLearning Delivery

Zephyr Learning

The success of elearning can be attributed to the quality of what is created and delivered. However, the constant changes in media technology and our ever evolving ‘information accessing’ behaviour is certainly testing the viability of any created elearning solution.

What is eLearning: Part 1 – An Overview

Zephyr Learning

Last week, between meetings, we had another one of our café conversations. We were discussing the elearning industry when a question was raised: ‘Do people really understand what elearning is?’ The answer of course is yes! But a definition of elearning is not enough for people to fully understand it. There is almost a science around elearning and how to make it work.

The Secret to Getting Learning Results May Not Be What You Think

Do you struggle to achieve measurable results with your learning solutions? If so, you’re not alone. According to CEB, traditional training only creates 37% learning transfer. This guide explores the causes of poor transfer and concrete steps to achieving better outcomes.

Learning in your Pocket!!

Zephyr Learning

Introduction. This title has been on my mind for some time now as I feel it is going to become a very important strategy for the elearning world. Whilst I cannot claim to coin the phrase (Learning in your Pocket), I can however give you my interpretation of what it could mean for the future of elearning.

Learning interaction – or lack of!!

Zephyr Learning

Jodie and I were sitting in a famous coffee house recently, discussing the elearning industry. While I was ‘definitely’ focused on our discussion, I noticed that there was a new starter training session going on. We were sitting very close so I could see everything, and I was amazed to see how poor the delivery of training was. It reminded me of the saying – if you want to get something done – then do it yourself.

What makes elearning work?

Zephyr Learning

I have often thought about this question, especially at the start of every project – what will make this elearning solution work. It is a difficult question to answer as there is no real generic answer, it does depend on a number of key factors: Objectives – more than just learning objectives, but also focusing on the business reasons for elearning. Learners – Who are they? How do they work? What is their performance issue?

Managers – good or bad?

Zephyr Learning

There is great hope and expectation within a company when a manager is met for the first time, especially when it is in a public assembly. The smiles, the head nodding, the ‘let’s work together’ and ‘I will make it happen’ statements, the use of first name terms and the feeling of togetherness makes for an unbelievable working environment. Is it unbelievable? Well unfortunately in many cases YES! We have come to see that stress levels and attrition rates have hit very high levels.

The right person for the right job

Zephyr Learning

During my many years within the elearning industry I have found that the process of recruitment is consistently bad. What I mean by this is, we contract recruitment agencies and pay their percentage fee just to receive a Curriculum Vitae. This might seem a bit harsh, but my understanding of contracting a person or agency is based on the fact that you want them to do the work with you.
