Myths about online learning

Janet Clarey

I think many of these myths can be applied to corporate e-learning. I'm thinking here about a vodcast with group communication around its content. Myth : Online courses are OK for learning Microsoft Word, but you cannot possibly teach real science (which translates into higher thinking/very technical content in the corporate world). which translates into SMEs unwillingness in the corporate environment to train because they ‘have a job to do.’)

Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Janet Clarey

Although it is a huge part of my personal learning and work environment I’m just well, blah. While some would argue that a Google search is not ‘real learning,’ search (and other) tools from Google appear to have pedagogical uses. The ubiquity of the platform is what makes it worthy of consideration for supporting workplace learning. For language learning, Google has Language Tools.
