Culture and Language Diversity in Online Learning Environment

TalentLMS

If there is one dimension that needs careful planning when designing an online learning program or a course, this is the culture and language diversity. This loss of knowledge defeats the purpose of online education! When planning online courses, it is essential to determine the learners’ cultural and language background. This enables the course developers to use neutral and simple language to deliver the content. Opinion eLearning instructional design

Don’t Treat Beginners and Experienced Learners the Same Way

Association eLearning

Everyone had to learn everything together though, despite the fact that we were at different stages of learning. Trying to create one-size-fits-all eLearning can lead to similar difficulties. One-size-fits-all eLearning may sound like a good thing, but that isn’t always the case.

Practice and Sharing: The Keys to Success

Learning isn’t Linear

To put this into context, let’s take a broader look at how learning occurs. People sometimes think that the rate of learning (skill, knowledge, wisdom, etc.) They picture a line moving steadily upward as a person learns. Learning isn’t linear.

Education Balancing Act: Asynchronous, Synchronous, and Blended Learning

Association eLearning

Trends in eLearning come and go, but a good LMS is forever. Below is a list of eLearning trends we expect to see in 2015. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are definitely trending in eLearning. These are online courses offered to the masses, often for free.

Frustratingly Effective Learning

Association eLearning

The learners demonstrated the skills they were supposed to be learning and came up with a range of creative solutions to the assignment. And it got bad reviews because it was “too hard,” even though their performance proved that they’d met the objectives and could apply what they’d learned.

Don’t Just Tell, Show: the Value of Examples

Association eLearning

Uninspired eLearning tends to fail on both of these points. You could just tell them by sending out an e-mail or making an eLearning course full of animated text that lists all of the information. We need to learn how to use it too because we’re falling behind them.

The Difference Between Empathy and Sympathy (And when to use each one)
