“Brain Freeze: Does your eLearning System Cause Learning Paralysis?”

Vignettes Learning

However, the influx of information to an individual’s brain may prove to be debilitating to one’s decision making process or may result to learning paralysis for learners. Considering the limitations of the brain’s working memory to handle a certain quantity of information, elearning developers should seriously reflect on their implementation strategies. Any additional information from that point and beyond tends to hamper or paralyze people’s ability to make sound decisions.

Transforming Minds - Using Metaphors in eLearning

Vignettes Learning

Synthesis Using metaphors in eLearning makes learners more receptive to ideas and information that are otherwise complex to figure out. They allow large amounts of information to be retained, recalled and applied rapidly. In the fast-paced learning environment where learners are highly distracted, busy and overloaded, the use of metaphors provide even greater value. Ask the question, “what associations do you have with the content idea?”

In a World of Info Overflow, Embrace Lean Learning

Your Brain on Learning

CLO Magazine

When the brain learns, it acquires information through a person’s various senses, and this information travels along the synapses to the short-term memory. After the information has been processed in working memory, it is carried to the brain’s core where it is compared with things we know or have experienced, and then stored in long-term memory. Poring over all the scientific information available can be exhausting. Processing: Information overload is real.
