Cognitive Load vs. Load Time

eLearning Weekly

It makes sense: if you want to influence brains with new knowledge, it helps to know how brains function best while learning. When we tested out of the LMS, we saw some strange effects but wrote them off: surely the great and powerful LMS would handle the files more seamlessly. Bottom line, the sheer size of the files was too much to handle. Cognitive psychology ran smack into the hard wall of file size.

Wizcabin

Structure your information into bite-sized chunks. To achieve an effective learning program with videos, you should consider segmenting your video content into bite-sized chunks that can easily get absorbed. That offers learners time to digest the information and connect the new knowledge to the existing knowledge. Use the story to put your learners through on how they can develop specific skills and knowledge of the task. It also helps them to retain knowledge.

10 advantages of microlearning

Ed App

Microlearning is when lessons are distilled into easily-absorbed bite-sized chunks. Small file sizes mean microlessons can easily be distributed, potentially globally, via the cloud (often using apps) to learners’ own mobile devices. This is in contrast to large courses which can require enormous data-sizes – particularly when video is concerned – that will struggle with local, broadband infrastructural-foibles.

It is highly unlikely that viewers will use symbols like “ © ®” to look for a file. Instead of naming your file “final_video.mp4” or “final_video.avi”, make sure that you rename the video including the same keywords. The file name will be an indicator for search engines describing the contents of your file. The ideal thumbnail size is 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall, with a minimum width of 640 pixels. The image’s file size needs to be less than 2MB.

6 Factors to Consider while Digitizing Books at Scale

The ASCII format helps to reduce file size and allows text to be searched, reformatted or processed by third-party applications. The first step of the book digitization process is to create the master file. While creating the master file, it is important to keep the following parameters in mind: Image R esolution: Image resolution, measured in dots per inch (dpi) is the number of pixels per unit of length – the higher the resolution, the more detailed the digital copy.

As eLearning developers we regularly work with images in our projects and while we aren’t all graphic designers, it helps to have a basic knowledge of the terminology around image properties and file types which is what this post is about. Vector images use mathematical expressions to represent the image, they tend to have small file sizes and are scalable so when you resize them larger, which means that they don’t lose quality.
