Improve Classroom Learning With SAMR

LearnDash

If you are developing training or live-lectures, then there is a good chance that you have heard of some of the popular instructional design frameworks. Perhaps the most famous of these is ADDIE , a model used in nearly every training project that I have participated in or have come across. In fact, most models are derived from ADDIE in one way or another. But there are of course other frameworks that are meant to improve learning initiatives. One of which is SAMR.

Honey I Shrunk the Storyline Variable Text

eLearning Brothers

Honey, I Shrunk the StoryLine Variable Text! It was an experiment gone bad! A recent StoryLine project required that several journal entries be recorded as variables, and then displayed in a lightbox popup. Creating a textbox populated by the variable name, flanked by “%” signs, imports the variable text when viewing the course. That’s when it happened; StoryLine fits all the variable text into the text box by shrinking the font size. I had shrunk the variable text! This was bad, very bad.

The Uncanny Valley of Organizational Risk

Training Industry

The concept of the “uncanny valley,” first coined by roboticist Masahiro Mori in 1970, describes the unsettling effect whereby robot faces, video games, CGI, and the like fall somewhere on a continuum of eerie to repulsive when they fall short of actually mimicking human appearance and motion. Said another way, the closer we get to the real thing, the less we start to like it. We’re better off with some technology not trying to masquerade as the real thing.

How to Make Your Online Training “Go Viral”

Mindflash

I’m not a marketer. I’m an educator. But, maybe, I’m both? Or, at least, maybe I should be both. Consider content marketing and online training , for example. Both involve content delivered through digital media (infographics, blogs, videos, podcasts, slides, e-books, how-to guides, etc.). Both involve content delivery. Content marketing uses content for the purposes of attracting and retaining customers and online training uses content for the purposes of helping people to learn.
