Why does learning content seem so much more exciting on an iPad?

Clive on Learning

I'm convinced that the future of e-learning will be on tablet devices. Not so much performance support, because you need that to hand every minute of the day and a smart phone is the obvious vehicle. But for learning, a tablet seems such a perfect fit. Since DevLearn last week, when it seemed every other person was carrying an iPad, I've been trying to figure out just what it is that tablets offer as a delivery medium for learning which a laptop can't do equally as well.

Training: The Value of Assessments

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Jennie Ruby. Very few readers commented on my recent question about course assessments. Although I do know of at least one training company that offers assessments and feedback after the class, I am deducing that conducting assessments is not the norm. I have read a couple of articles--and one book--saying that we will need to start proving that our training is effective by providing after-the-class assessment. Training on Trial , by Jim D.

The Future of e-Learning Content after Adobe Kills Flash on Mobile Devices

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

It is official. Adobe, in a written statement , announced that it will not support Flash in mobile browsers henceforth. As it is, iPhone and iPad don't play Flash content. It will be a matter of time before new versions of other mobile devices (based on Android and other platforms) stop supporting Flash in browsers. What does this mean for e-learning content? Well, Adobe continues to be committed to supporting Flash on the PC platform.

Building eLearning Scenarios in Working Sessions with SMEs

Integrated Learnings

By Shelley A. Gable. We know that scenarios benefit performance by immersing learners into workplace situations within training. The storytelling quality of scenarios helps make the lessons learned in training memorable. And there are many ways to incorporate stories and scenarios into eLearning. But how do you write these scenarios in the first place? After all, crafting a realistic scenario requires leveraging tacit knowledge that only a subject matter expert (SME) might possess.

What is a Cognitive Apprenticeship?

Kapp Notes

The concept of cognitive apprenticeship is grounded in the theory of Situated Cognition. Situated cognition is a theory of instruction that suggests learning is naturally tied to authentic activity, context, and culture. The idea is that the person and the environment in which they are learning cannot be separated in any analysis of learning. They are each part of a mutually constructed whole.

Reading from a script is not for me

This time last year, I wrote the following in the Onlignment blog under the heading Why I’m not going to speak from a script again : For some reason, there are lessons that take a long time to learn – however often an action leads to negative consequences, you just seem bound to repeat it.

With mobile learning getting a lot of interest recently (roughly 50% of businesses surveyed say they have plans to implement some form of mobile learning in the foreseeable future), it’s becoming clear that many companies don’t have a plan to successfully create a sustainable, robust mobile learning strategy.
