LearnDash

What is micro learning, and how can you use it to your advantage? If you’re like most online educators, you probably tend to think of course creating in terms of subject matter rather than delivery method.

A helicopter view on our changing learning landscape

Challenge to Learn

Being the CEO of a company that revolves around learning technology I have to watch the trends in Learning & Development. I even have to predict what will be next. I need to be ahead of the game in order to steer my company in the right direction. For this purpose, I made an analysis of the changes that I see and I wanted to share these insights.

Taking Your Training Global? Don’t Forget Instructional Design!

InSync Training

As our organizations expand, we will rarely create a training program that will only have one delivery run in one location.

Problematically, many stakeholders believe that rolling out global training just means “deliver existing content to every cohort.”.
