We may have all been drinking the same cool-aid, but at the IMS Global Learning Consortium Learning Impact Conference in Toronto, there was a meeting of the minds. The IMS is at the cutting edge of web 2.0 Give a student an assessment to measure their level of competency relative to an educational standard (like common core), then use this information to create an individualized learning plan matched to the learners needs and learning style preferences.

LMS for the Next Generation of Corporate Learners: An Insight

G-Cube

Analyzing the findings, we can create better learning experiences for students as well as the future corporate learners. But additional features go ignored for most learners. So, while implementing evolved LMSs of the future, we have to make sure that users are duly aware of system features, and provide training support to help the instructors as well as the learners to adapt themselves to the utilities of newer features.

It has also brought in tremendous possibilities to create ‘inclusive’ learning that takes into consideration the special needs of differently abled learners as well – in educational institutes as well as corporate organizations. Computer-based programs have been developed to help these learners access learning material as well as contribute actively to gain an immersive experience. There are various challenges that learners with disabilities face.

How to make learners fall in love with training

Litmos

How to make learners fall in love with training. You'll find yourself telling learners: "It's required for compliance." And, yes, the reality is that training often does need to be enforced, but it doesn't need to feel like pulling teeth (for you or for learners). Provide plenty of positive outcomes and you'll get learners to seek training. Always focus on the benefits to the learner first. Sometimes, L&D people may feel that they're forcing people to learn.

The 'learner' fallacy - delusions of influence in L&D

3 Changes to Make for a Successful Year in L&D

I’ve been asking these questions too, and in my search for answers, I found the best place to start was better understanding my employees (learners). Stop worrying about millennials and boomers and start worrying about learner preferences. While there is some broad truth to generational differences, there were plenty of boomers in the room who prefer YouTube “how-to’s” and a significant number of millennials who still to write things down and would choose face to face over IM.

Think About It – How Important Is Reflecting On What You Have Learnt?

G-Cube

It is difficult to get learners together for a classroom session and when they are present, the main aim is to share the required information – leaving no time to reflect or ponder over the information gathered. In e-learning too, the learner is required to complete a course from start to finish – with little scope for reflection. Simulated environments can also be created to make learners reflect and apply the learning.

Mobile Devices in Learning: Utilizing the Ubiquitous Platform for Corporate Learning

G-Cube

Most corporate learners are open to the idea of self-paced online learning. Mobile learning truly extends learning beyond the confines of a classroom – delivering learning as per the need of the learners. As learners are already utilizing mobile devices, it makes good sense to put them to work for training as well. Learners access them as per their schedule. The learners can provide instant answers from remote locations and can be assessed on the same.

Why an LMS Needs Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Functionality

TOPYX LMS

It also allows learners to easily share data. The problem is that the training they offer their workers is not always delivered through a user-friendly platform (for example, an online learning platform that requires multiple logins and consumes too much of a learner’s time). IMS Global Learning Consortium says, ‘When vendors take advantage of a common approach to interoperability, such as LTI, integrations can be completed considerably faster and at a much lower cost.’

MOOCs Aren’t Interactive, So There’s No Real Learning Taking Place

Read the previous article: MOOCs Treat All Learners the Same. Learners just sit in front of a computer and watch video lectures (they probably aren’t even paying attention) and take multiple choice tests. There is no learner-learner interaction, no instructor-learner interaction, and only a minimal amount of learner-content interaction. Assign learners to groups. Gamification can boost learner engagement and encourage interaction.

Spring Fever: How to Address Short Attention Spans in eLearning

eLearning Brothers

Teachers, professors, and training teams everywhere are watching as their students experience energy surges like no other time during the year; for many learners this spring fever translates into a high level of distraction. When learners are highly distracted and presented with a myriad of choices, how do you grab their attention? If a course takes an hour to complete, even the most focused learner will become distracted. It’s April and that means spring has arrived.

The larger the library of pre-built IM's you have access to, the wider your choice, and the more you are likely to find one that exactly fits your need.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. With LTI, a learner logs into an LMS (what is referred to as an “LTI tool consumer”) and typically selects a resource link to play a course. This file contains all the information needed by the LMS for it to import and launch (or play) the content without the learner doing a single thing. Governance: LTI is created and maintained by IMS; SCORM by ADL.
