This allows the learners to not only perceive each other for comparison and self-evaluation, but also see others as a neutral source of information, which may help or speed several forms of instrumental learning.

How long does it take to create e-learning?

Bryan asked respondents to provide estimates for four categories of project: Instructor-led training (ILT) : A useful comparison to the e-learning, but also a reasonable guide to what it would take to develop sessions for the virtual classroom. I often get asked how long it takes to create a piece of e-learning. As we all know e-learning means different things to different people, but usually people are asking about the formal stuff, in particular interactive self-study materials.

What Agile Means to Me

ID Reflections

Coming from a very traditional, waterfall-driven background replete with all the drawbacks (what I perceive as drawbacks in comparison now), it took me quite a while to assimilate the philosophy—even the basics of Agile. I complete exactly 3 months at ThoughtWorks today. While this has been a momentous career shift for me, I may not have written a blog post on it except for the learning.

Kapp Notes

Sitzmann and Ely (2010) in a meta-analysis found that learners participating in simulation game learning experiences have 11% higher declarative knowledge, 14% higher procedural knowledge and 9% higher retention of training material than those trainees participating in more traditional learning experiences. Sitzmann and Ely (2010) found post-training self-efficacy was 20% higher with simulation games than comparison groups in meta-analysis.

Competition & Cooperation in Gamification

Kapp Notes

Prizes for winners should be of little importance or even symbolic help ensure that the student efforts are intrinsic and not driven by the expected outcome (Cantador & Conde, 2010). Competition has to be long enough to avoid learner demotivation because of bad initial results, and to assure that all participants have a good chance of winning until the end of the activity (Cantador & Conde, 2010).
