New Book: Play to Learn!

Usable Learning

I got a present in my mailbox today — it was the paper copy of Sharon Boller and Karl Kapp’s new book, Play to Learn ! They based the book on the workshop that Karl and Sharon teach about the topic, which is why (I suspect) the book is loaded with so many interesting activities and worksheets for designing learning games. They pull off a really nice balance between: referencing the research evidence behind games for learning. Lessons on Learning.

Distributed Learning

Clark Quinn

Distributed learning is an idea that I think offers an untapped potential, what with the new technologies we have. I’m not talking here about distance learning, but instead a combination of slow learning with ubiquitous learning. The idea is to combine learning on the go and on-demand with a long term relationship, personalized awareness, and mixed media. Think of it as cloud computing for your learning goals.

Will e-learning put me out of a job?

Clive on Learning

After last week's ' Why is e-learning so unpopular? ', I turn today to another question I am frequently asked by l&d people: 'Will e-learning put me out of a job?' Do learning technologies really threaten l&d jobs? Learning technologies can and will dramatically change the nature of the service provided by l&d and the skills mix will be quite different.

Learning in real time

Clive on Learning

One advantage of synchronous training is that it represents a comparatively familiar environment for classroom trainers (perhaps not in appearance but certainly in function) and that it requires only a relatively small step for them to engage with e-learning as an online facilitator. However, even this small step requires support, whether that's coaching from an experienced failitator, a formal training programme or a book, perhaps all three.

Time to put an end to faceless e-learning

Clive on Learning

E-learning does, of course, take many forms, but for most corporate users the predominant usage is of interactive self-study materials, what used to be called CBT (computer-based training). No, in my opinion, the problem is not page turning, it is the faceless nature of most self-study e-learning - the fact that there is no Lee Child or his interactive counterpart. So why is so much self-study e-learning dry, faceless and personality-free?
