The science of expertise: how to help professionals peak with your blended learning design

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I am hooked by the Wordblitz game app - making words. I play it 2-3 times per day. I can see if I'm getting better by the scores I gain on the daily challenge. When I started playing I was simply making words.

My experiences with a hybrid session: the new norm?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

In July we completed the Design and Facilitation of Blended Learning course. As teachers, we are proud of the beautiful designs for online lessons, online workshops, interactive videos and coaching programs, which were already already implemented in many cases.

Creative facilitation with breakout rooms

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Experimenting with three network tools: Wonder Me, Spatialchat and Gather

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

In October I ran into Wonder at the online conference of facilitators and I got really excited about it. You can easily 'walk around' and talk to people. Then I discovered that there are many more such tools.

Tool of the month: Flipgrid app for video sharing

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

The tool of the month is Flipgrid , a handy app for sharing videos within a blended training or online event. It wasn't love at first sight between me and Flipgrid. The first time I tested Flipgrid I couldn't figure out how to easily invite people without the videos being public.

K-12 looks different these days. But one thing remains the same: you need a reliable learning platform that serves as the foundation for teaching and learning––for all students, in a variety of learning experiences.

Large-scale online course design? Use collaborative learning for high engagement

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

The big challenge with large-scale online courses (100+ participants) is to keep people engaged. It is easy for people to drop out: due to urgent matters on their to-do list, due to learning assignments that do not exactly match their learning goals, due to not understanding the platform….

Do you morph? About professional identity and the importance of doing new things

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Happy learners with an attractive platform

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Do you facilitate an online or blended course? If it takes longer than let's say a day or week, you may be using an online platform. Maybe you are already content that you understand all feature or you may have someone 'doing' the platform stuff.

Tool of the month: online brainstorm wall Padlet

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Often when I blog about tools I put a new tool in the spotlight. However, online learning can be rendered more effective by smart use of 'old' tools. That's why this time the tool of the month is good old Padlet. You probably already know Padlet.

Tool of the month: game-based learning with Seppo.io

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

About 5 years ago I was brainstorming with a group of colleagues to design a workshop. Someone shouted: a traffic jam workshop! I didn't have a clue what that was, but immediately had a vision of a workshop in the train to avoid the traffic jam.

Organizations: keep an eye on your high speed learners

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

A participant during my master class on learning of the future shares: " I was learning a lot through the online world and would be at the cutting-edge in my field, this learning was logical part of my work as recruiter. Now I have a new job and it is not a logical part of my function. I don't have the time anymore to be active online. I see that I am no longer aware of all the new developments in my field ". You will not get better proof of the power of online, informal learning.

Using personas in design of online and blended learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Why would you work with personas when designing online or blended learning? In this blog I will share my enthusiasm about working with personas. Working with personas is not only useful for marketing professionals but also useful in a design process for learning trajectories. Abdel lives in the capital of Mali, studies journalism and is eager to learn. He has internet access via the university network on his Huawei smartphone.

How is learning organized in a self-managed organization?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Every month I read a management book. I am very curious about learning in self-managing organizations. How is this organized? Is self-management also self-directed learning? In April, therefore, I have read the much talked-about book by Frederic Laloux about new ways of organizing ( reinventing organizations ). I started reading 70-20-10 boek van Jos Arets, Vivian Heijnen en Charles Jennings but this is not an easy book to take with you on the train. So Laloux got priority.

(video) tool of the month: 1 second video apps for blended learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

This blogpost can be read in Dutch on Ennuonline. Video is an important online trend. The tool of this month is therefore a video tool: the 1 second video app. Video is already important in online marketing, and learning and training follows this trend. I can hardly imagine an online course or MOOC without video. The classic way to produce a learning video is to hire a professional filmmaker ask them to record and edit the video.

Meet Beau, a reflection chatbot

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Working in a small group to design a blended training I felt very annoyed. I had the feeling we were investing too much energy in defining the goals and was worried that the team was not going in the right direction. Usually I can put my finger on what we need to do, but this time I did not know exactly where it had gone wrong. I decided to use our own " Beau the reflection chatbot ". Beau asked me a number of questions such as: " What did you do in this situation ?" " How did it work out? "

You can stimulate curiosity for self directed learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

This morning I cycled in the sun to a school for higher eduction to a look back at a fun and successful project. A team of teachers and staff have organized a SPOC (Small Private Online Course), supported by me and Sibrenne from Ennuonline. Within the SPOC, on the Curatr platform, sources like short video clips or cartoons were shared as conversation starters on topics such as classroom atmosphere, structure, variety in lessons and attention to individual students.

A world full of knowmads in 2020?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

John Moravec was the first to coin the term knowmad in the book Knowmad society. In this Tedtalk John poses an interesting statement about the 'rise of the knowmad'. " In 2020 45% of the workforce will be knowmads ". Eh 2020? That's already in 3 years time! Hurry up? On what basis is this 45% calculated? Who are these other 55%? And what type of organization is attractive for knowmads?

Tool of the month: do-it-yourself animation videos

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Anyone can now create an animation video using handy do-it-yourself tools. In this blog you will find a number of tools and tips to start with. In every Ennuonline course there is someone who proudly shows a self-made animation video. Margreet rushed in very enthusiastically in the previous course: " Is there a timeslot to show my video ?" Of course that was allowed. Her video received a lot of praise and admiration from all participants.

How to stimulate creativity in online teams: A 100% online process to design a blended learning trajectory

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Joehoe! I am very proud of the result of three creative online sessions, resulting in a blended design. Sibrenne and I have just completed a design process for a blended trajectory with WWF. The special thing about this project is that the whole design process took place online. The members of our design team live in Namibia, Switzerland, Suriname, Nairobi and the Netherlands. It has produced a design that has been very well received, we have received many compliments about the process.

10 community principles to make your MOOC stronger

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

In January we had a lot of fun facilitating our knowmad MOOC. 600 people participated and we had quite intense exchanges. We received many compliments for the way we facilitated it: personal and quick responses. A social MOOC requires a good design of the learning activities, design of the platform and spacing of activities. I think there were many details in our MOOC that made it a success. If you want to read something about the content, check out my some of my blogposts about the knowmad.

The 10 basic online tools every trainer and online facilitator should know

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

(photo by Kitty Terwolbeck ) There are lots of online tools that you can use for free or for very little money. Every week I try some new tools (like this week vialogues ) and honestly? Occasionally the high number of tools and possibilities make me restless. I have a tools list (both in a booklet and online in diigo) to try out and I never find the time or have the idea that I''ve tested enough tools.

How our learning theories shape how we use technology for learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I read a paper called Perspectives on learning and technology: A review of theoretical perspectives "This paper provides a review of literature pertaining to theoretical references on educational practice and technology from perspectives of learning theories of the 20th and 21st centuries." A learning theory (or theories) helps understand how people learn, thereby assisting educators, trainers and facilitators reflect on their educational practices.

Let's improve our learning language as learning professionals

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

If the Sami eskimos have 180 words for snow - how come we as learning professionals have only one word for learning? OK, we have learning and development (L&D) so we have two words. I think we are way too sloppy in talking about learning. Improving our language- being more precise- would help advance the practice. I understand why the Dutch have only one word for snow, because we had only one day of snow this year (see picture) and rather thinnish.

Tool of the month: interactive video

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

This time the tool of the month is not one but no fewer than five tools. I co-organized a meetup about interactive video in the Netherlands. My own experience with interactive video had been adding questions to videos with the help of Zaption (which no longer exists) and Edpuzzle. I also experimented with Vialogues to facilitate a conversation around a video source. However, the meetup opened up a whole new world of interactive video. It is much more than just adding a question to a video.

You can use Twitter to get new ideas to do your work in a better way

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Would you like to show off at work with great ideas? This week I did some intakes for a course about learning technologies which is starting next Monday and I realized that actually very few people are using Twitter. Yes, they do have a Twitter account and may have a look at their timeline some times, but it is not helping them to do their work in a more innovative way. That's a pity, because Twitter can actually help you to generate better ideas.

From intuition to knowing for sure: a case of applying learning analytics at course level

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Blogpost is written in collaboration with Francois Walgering from MOOCfactory and Sibrenne Wagenaar from Ennuonline. More and more trainers and facilitators use online platforms for online interaction to facilitate learning. This is akin to face-to-face facilitation but also has its own dynamics. For example, how do you know if an online article is read? Or how much time a participant spends viewing a video or doing an assignment? Which participants connect online?

My takeaways from OEB18: communities, AI and 3D-smarts and some very practical stuff

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

For the first time in my life I went to the OEB learning technologies conference in Berlin. It was a great conference. I did not feel tired Friday at 18.00 when it ended, but completely energized and full of new ideas! Thanks to Wilfred Rubens for pointing me to this conference and tips to navigate the conference. I followed his advice of doing a pre-conference session with Jef Staes which was one of my highlights. Wilfred also blogged about the conference.

Learning poses or learning to model?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Every Monday evening at 20.30 I install myself in front of the television with my daughter for a program called Hollands Next Topmodel, to continue with Models in Paris: The real life. My husband doesn't like it at all, but I really enjoy a view into a completely different world. A world where looks and poses count. This is the first year men have also joint the candidates for Topmodel. The first episode something funny happened with Chris.

Content Localization: The Key to Your Organization's Global Impact

Speaker: Zak Haitkin, Localization Manager

Localization is speaking your customer’s language in such a way that they can truly relate to the content, no matter where they're from. Good translation might be what brings people to your eLearning platform, but quality localization keeps them coming back. It's important to identify how you want your eLearning content to come across and decide whether translation or localization is the right approach.
