eLearning Must Look Good

eLearning Brothers

When we create eLearning we should remember that people don’t read…they scan! We quickly scan a page to see if there is any information that interests us. We are shallow people!

We’re all headline writers now

Clive on Learning

If not, it will be scanned in a microsecond and quickly cast aside. When you’re confronted day after day by hundreds, if not thousands, of emails, tweets, status updates, blog posts and text messages, it’s amazing how skilful we become at weeding out the communications that deserve our attention. If we didn’t, we’d soon be completely overwhelmed.

A solution looking for a problem? That's OK

Clive on Learning

As I contemplated these three technologies, I scanned all those problems currently and historically faced by any of my colleagues and clients to see whether I could find an application. It's fashionable to sneer at the idea that a particular technology is merely a solution looking desperately for a problem to justify its existence.

People will scan the subject line of the e-mail to decide if they will open it or not, regardless that you sent it. People are busy and will scan the e-mail after opening it, to see if there is benefit for them and/or valuable information. How do you know how many people are actually opening up your e-mail, reading or scanning it and going to the LMS or some other site for more information?

Use Images that Make a Difference

eLearning Brothers

Our learners typically browse and scan our courses as they would a site. I’ve written various blogs about why gratuitous eLearning images are bad. Our images should be relevant and be used as a teaching aid. It has always been interesting to me how many “bad images&# are used in eLearning. Especially since many of us are primarily visual learners. This probably happens because typing text is a lot easier and faster than creating meaningful images.

7 lessons how to use social media in an event with social media beginners

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Making use of an existing, spontaneous backchannel by having someone scan and read it is fine ofcourse. Last year we've experimented with various social media to improve a sharing event for about 100 participants (for more details see my older blogpost ). This is not too difficult when all your participants are social media adepts, you announce your hashtags and off they go. However, in this case the majority wasn't actively using social media. So how can you still use social media?
