Instructional Design: The Process – 1

Origin Learning

There have been all types of blend in learning, using all possible avenues from brick-and-mortar classrooms, virtual classrooms, eLearning, digital tutorials, videos, to xAPI tracking all forms of social or informal learning. Enough has been written about ID and its various theories and models that define the various approaches or strategies to learning design. Measure the learning effectiveness with Kirkpatrick’s Four Levels of Training Evaluation.

What Is Learning Evaluation?


This series is ideal if you're new to learning evaluation and measurement, need a refresher on learning evaluation theories, need help deciding which learning evaluation theories best suit your needs, or simply interested in understanding how technology, xAPI , and measurement fit into learning evaluation.

Commonly Used Training Evaluations Models: A Discussion with Dr. Will Thalheimer

Convergence Training

Four Common Learning Evaluation Models–Kirkpatrick, Kaufman, Philips & Brinkerhoff. Well, of course, the most common, the most well-known, is the Kirkpatrick four-level model. And okay, if we can just walk through each of the four models you talked about–Kirkpatrick, Phillips, Kaufman, and Brinckerhoff–and maybe you can explain to people, especially people who may not have heard of any of these, what they are and what are some pros and cons of each.

Learning Analytics: Advanced Evaluation Complexity


This type of evaluation also creates theories about causation, which allows you to focus on what’s working best while scrapping ineffective learning. This process is loosely based on Kirkpatrick’s four levels of learning evaluation. The following example shows drop off analysis for an xAPI-tracked game we hosted during a conference. Advanced Evaluation is less common than Data Evaluation , which means there’s no well-worn path leading the way.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms


From Agile to xAPI and everything in between, there are a lot of eLearning terms to get your head around. Notable contributions include SCORM and xAPI. An eLearning content authoring tool is a software package which content developers use to create and package eLearning course content using SCORM or xAPI standards. This is a “profile” for using the xAPI specification with learning management systems. Kirkpatrick Model. xAPI (Tin Can).
