Learner-centered, or…

Clark Quinn

I’m wondering about ‘learner-centered’, and it may seem churlish to suggest otherwise. First, ‘learner-centered’ (apparently also known as ‘ student centered ‘) is used to take the focus away from the teacher. My worry, with learner-centered learning, is that we may become too accommodating. It could be too easy to cater to learners. I’m arguing for ‘learning-centered’, not learner-centered.

Does Your Course Suffer from Learner Burnout?

LearnDash

Online education offers learners many benefits—from increased accessibility, flexibility of schedule, and a wider range of courses than traditional education can support. But it does have a down-side, and that is that many learners who sign up for online courses struggle to complete them. These high failure rates have traditionally been attributed to learner burnout.

Protagonists Should Be Like Your Learners

Experiencing eLearning

The protagonist should be someone your learners identify with. In workplace learning, that means the character has the same or a similar job as the learners.

When learners identify with your protagonist, they care about what happens to the character.

Make Learners Care about Compliance Training

Experiencing eLearning

What if you could create compliance training that learners actually wanted to complete, that they cared about? To create compliance training that learners care about, they need to know both why and when the policies matter. Unfortunately, compliance training is often just a content dump with a narrator reading the policy, followed by some multiple choice questions to see if learners remember what they heard 5 minutes earlier.
