Creating Big Lessons by Using Small Data

Rapid learning is achieved by putting lessons in micro-scenarios. Instead of pontificating on large data, eLearning methodology selects only a micro-lesson which can be plucked from the whole knowledge source. I compared these micro-lessons to kernels.

What Can eLearning Learn from “7 Ways Video Games Reward the Brain?”

Integrated Learnings

A few weeks ago, a colleague pointed me to a recent talk, “ 7 Ways Video Games Reward the Brain ,” presented by Tom Chatfield. But what about a longer course with several eLearning lessons? An experience bar might represent lessons completed, case studies resolved, tasks done correctly.or How we can apply it: A previous post on this blog suggests that several smaller lessons can motivate learners by offering a clear sense of progress through a course.
