Are You Riding the Waves or the Ripples? Tracking Learning Trends

Vignettes Learning

The alternative approach: “Thought and Action are One” (learn and apply, learning by doing) gained popularity. Without presenting an alternative way of writing content, SMEs will cling to these traditonal methods. However, patterns (ripples) emerge from big (trends) waves.

Writing Mistakes and Consequences

First, Draft One Alternate Path to Its Conclusion. I start writing a single alternate path from beginning to end. Draft Another Alternate Path (and Another, and Another…). Once the first alternate path is written, go back to the beginning of the scenario.

Visuals and Visual Thinking

Association eLearning

When they’re used effectively, visuals can distil content down into recognizable symbols, colors, patterns, shapes, etc. Have you ever sketched something out on the back of a napkin or drawn a mindmap to keep track of ideas during a brainstorming session?

Emergent & Semantic Learning

Clark Quinn

However, as you track outcomes, e.g. success on practice, and start looking at that by doing data analytics, you can start trolling for emergent patterns (again, made up).

Customized Course Catalog for an Enhanced eLearning Experience


Imagine, removing aisles of gluten-free products and diet-friendly alternatives. Without the constraints of space, and by tracking users’ data and making complex correlations between user behaviors, online catalogs can be infinitely customized.

Keeping Track of Alternate Paths. What was left was filling in the branches for the alternate paths. As you can see in the image below, my method of keeping track of what I’ve built so far isn’t very high tech.

What Is a Learning Organization?

Convergence Training

Concrete learning practices and processes, including experimentation to develop and test new products; keeping track of trends with competitors, customers, and technology; analysis and interpretation to identify and solve problems; and education and training for new and established employees.

Gamification of Learning and Training

Kapp Notes

Game mechanics, scoring, points, time elements, pattern seeking, item matching, content ratings are quickly working their way into almost every element of life. A leaderboard keeps track of the best scores.

Benefits of Delivering Content Through Digital Publishing Platform


Cost-effective Alternative: Replacing print with digital medium is undoubtedly cost saving as we saw in the previous point. Track Usage and Performance: Digital publishing made data collection possible. This data is used by publishers to track the sales of their eBooks, decide the pricing and distribution & sales strategies. Educational institutes can also use this data to get an insight on the consumption patterns of the learners.

5 Reasons Why MOOCs Provide Little Real Value


However, allow me to play “devil’s advocate” for a moment and provide an alternative perspective on MOOCs. I took a moment to investigate some of the larger MOOCs available today, and most follow the same pattern.

Cost-effective Alternative. Track Usage and Performance. This data is used by publishers to track the sales of their eBooks, decide the pricing and distribution & sales strategies. Educational institutes can also use this data to get an insight on the consumption patterns of the learners. Based on the content consumption patterns and engagement levels of the readers, institutes can customize the content.

How to Choose the Best Images for Your e-Learning


Photo “memorability seems more related to strangeness, funniness or interestingness,” according to a study presented at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Take a look at this eye-tracking study to see what types of images attract the most attention.

These techniques do work, and might lead to improved efficiency among the delegates, but individuals can often slip back into their old patterns of work as the lessons fade from memory. E-learning platforms, such as Schoox provide a tracking and instruction manual for supervisors.

Flash is Dead: Long Live HTML5 for eLearning


It’s certainly helpful that SCORM and Tin Can modules can be rendered using HTML5 as an alternative. The alternative may be a dramatically diminished user experience for learners unable to access Flash. In LearnUpon, we offer customers alternatives to using Flash for video content.

How to create spaced repetition?

Ed App

You may come up with a different pattern, but a typical repletion schedule can look like this: • First day: Initial study session. It will also keep you on track with the information being acquired in each session. Alternatively, if the above steps seem difficult to create or follow, opt for a spaced repetition software or app. Creating a study plan for spaced repetition learning can help you better remember what you have studied previously.

Deeper eLearning Design: Part 2 – Practice Makes Perfect


At the neural level, what happens in learning is that links between neurons get strengthened to create patterns of activation. Any practice you track is assessment, and so inherently the final practice is summative assessment. Provide challenging alternative choices based on common misconceptions. Also, in designing practice, make sure that the alternatives to the right answer are not just obvious or silly, but reflect ways in which learners go wrong.

Explore what-ifs and alternative histories for projects in which you’ve been involved. When a risky project fails, don’t scramble to cover your tracks or look around to see who you can blame. They gain consensus on a small scale and then quickly proceed, avoiding problematic situations like receiving conflicting marching orders from different executives and remaining in a holding pattern until some piece of essential communication trickles down the line.

The Heart of Scenarios Although the answers described some characteristics of scenarios, they did not mention the core idea of why scenario-based eLearning works, which is: It is about recognizing patterns from a series of choices leading to the discovery of the ideas. No alternative options.

Your learners are telling you how to improve, are you listening?
