The song remains the same

Learning with e's

In the 1960s and 1970s several musicians tried to change the world through their music.

Sparking Innovation in Your eLearning Design

Integrated Learnings

In some situations, we can set an expectation that email and instant messaging must be off during training. For example, it simplifies MTV to the connection between music and television, and the idea of drive-thru banking to the connection between cars and banking. By Shelley A. Gable. In scrolling through the Twittersphere , I clicked on a link to 14 Ways to Spark Innovation by Mitch Ditkoff.

The fascination of mathematics and music, has created many forms of complex sound, that touches many. To say that Bach, who created the modern tonal scale, was not creative or a musical genius, would be to downplay the mathematical accomplishment. The social networking phenomenon is upon us, and it seems that half the world (in reality, less than one sixth) is instant messaging, blogging, wiki-ing and generally collaborating and communicating in new and exciting ways

Meet the TechSmith Channel Team

TechSmith Camtasia

Rock and blues music is one of my life obsessions, so I came to the right place! I stay connected to the Channel Team by instant message, phone and email. When you think of the ways people buy Snagit or Camtasia you probably think of our online store…but in fact nearly half of TechSmith sales come through a reseller or distributor. These are companies like CDW, SHI, or PC Connection—and many more— in the U.S. and abroad.

Humans attempt to do many things at the same time, such as driving and chatting on the phone, or working and listening to music, and now research suggests why such multitasking may be possible: the brain appears to have its own control center. The typical office worker is interrupted every three minutes by a phone call, e-mail, instant message or other distraction. Human Brain's 'Mastermind' Located.

Using social media for eLearning (a look at the top 6 social platforms)

eFront

There’s also the fact that Twitter provides few mechanisms for saving, cataloguing and viewing tweets at a later time, besides the rather inflexible hashtags; it’s more a stream-of-messages than a content repository. In fact, there are tons of YouTube channels doing just that, e.g. providing foreign language lessons, cooking lessons, musical lessons, and everything in between. Social media have become an indispensable part of modern life.

I'm not the easiest person to convince about m-learning (with or without the hyphen or the capital L) - my commute can be measured in feet, I don't travel on business all that much, I don't like small devices with fiddly little buttons (you should see the size of my calculator) and I find background music distracting.
