10 Do’s and Don’ts for eLearning Visuals

DigitalChalk eLearning

Your images must add value to the course, whether it is a graph or chart explaining the information, or just an example photo that the student can relate to. Different medias and visuals help the student organize their information better.

A problem shared is … a launch pad for social learning


At Kineo we believe the key to success is as much a matter of taking stock of what's out there and what's going on (social is after all, happening all the time of its own accord), as it is about making the most of that information to enrich the solutions we design for our clients. What’s the key to making social learning work in the workplace?

Charles: We now know that people learn more about their work informally than they do formally. So we are seeing increasing interest in social and informal learning. Of course, structured learning approaches can support social and informal, but social and informal learning don’t need structured processes to happen. More and more work involves dealing with tacit information, and less and less work involves purely transactional work.
