Context is key

Clark Quinn

Workflow learning is one of the new buzzphrases. The notion is that you deliver learning to the point of need, instead of taking people away from the workflow. And I’m a fan. But it’s not as easy as it sounds! Context is a critical issue in making this work, and that’s non-trivial.

Opinion: Moodle’s Elephant in the Room

LearnDash

Simply put: Moodle needs to sell itself better. Every now and again I like to revisit Moodle to see how they are coming along with development.

It has been a while since the last time I looked at Moodle so I decided to go check it out again. Let’s look at the messaging for a moment.

PERFORMANCE SUPPORT:  Running the Entire Race

Living in Learning

In the comparison to a 400-meter relay race, Training does not fail. Training delivers a quality product for 25% of the race and makes a successful hand off to…ummm…the Help Desk? This is not a sustainable solution. Training doesn’t fail…the expectations of what training can deliver fails, and that’s because expectations are not aligned with the entire scope of the race.
