In a recent article, Kasper Spiro outlined five eLearning trends that he thinks will lead to the end of the Learning Management System (LMS). Participants highlighted the importance of personalized (adaptive) learning that is based on the outcomes of previous activities, or on creating smarter personalized courses based on learning objectives. Furthermore, the survey showed that eLearning is moving toward mobile learning.

Theory-informed design tips

E-Learning Provocateur

In my previous article , I proposed a Taxonomy of Learning Theories to organise a few of the myriad of theories into some semblance of order, and to assist instructional designers in using theory to inform their work. In this article, I go one step further by listing specific, practical instructional design tips that are informed by those theories. If you have your own theory-informed design tips, I’d love you to share them with me!

Bloom reheated

Learning with 'e's

In an age of digital media, where learners create, remix and share their own content, an overhaul of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy was long overdue. Yesterday I posted a critique of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy and argued that it is outmoded in the digital age. Unfortunately, Lorin Anderson's revised model (2001 in conjunction with Krathwohl) of the taxonomy is not as great an improvement on the original model as its adherents might claim. 2005) Bloom's Taxonomy.

During the interview, Lauren asked some very thoughtful questions about the relationship between theory and practice. I made this comment as part of the interview: It’s easy to get caught up in theories without really looking at whether the research support is there. Learning styles (like visual, auditory, kinesthetic) have much less effect on learning results than other factors, but we often focus on them heavily. Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Let’s take a look at how mobile learning might give your training a brighter outlook. The context in which you learn something defines how you remember it and relate it to your experience.

A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

From ‘training’, which was merely considered a passive function in an organization, the emphasis has now shifted towards making learning and talent development an integral part of corporate culture. The field of instructional design (ID) incorporates a rapidly growing and changing array of learning strategies, tools, and approaches into training experiences that appeal to today’s workers while meeting their complex learning needs.”.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

In my previous blog, I introduced you to instructional design and its role in the development of e-learning modules. Psychologists and educators started researching the theory of instruction. Skinner’s Theory of Operant Conditioning (1958) states that learning results in changes in overt behavior. Reinforcement is a key element of his theory. The application of this theory to e-learning led to the development of the programmed instruction movement.

Karl Kapp and Sharon Boller have been banging the drum about learning games for years. In fact, one of my favorite ID-books back in 2007 was Karl Kapp's "Gadgets, Games, and Gizmos for Learning." Well, 10 years later, games have not gone away, in fact, they've solidified their place in our industry as clients and learners continue to ask for and expecting in modern learning experiences.

Converting Live Workshops to an Online Course (Part II)

Web Courseworks

As online learning developers, we must build learning experiences with more content and more opportunity for learners to discuss topics of their interests with peers. This blog post will outline the second most important concept in delivering an online course: Consistent design of learning activities and use of Bloom’s taxonomy to encourage learner engagement in higher level learning. Adult learning theory screams: They won’t learn if they are not interested!

The DIY Guide to Converting Existing Content into an eLearning Course

SHIFT eLearning

Step Two: Determining Learning Objectives. Determining learning objectives helps designers determine what to include (or exclude) in their eLearning courses. Learning objectives also act as a guide before creators even begin designing the course by keeping the module in line with the current educational philosophy. Designers should refer to Bloom’s taxonomy , a theory that relates to the classification of different levels of cognitive learning.

Selecting assessment activities is a powerful way to achieve learning outcomes and to assure course completion. How should someone design assessments in online learning?

With a tool like Raptivity, educators can bridge this gap by adding meaningful learning interactions (such as brainteasers, interactive diagrams, 3D worlds, games, simulations, assessments and much more) to their digital content. With Raptivity, one can harness the addition of interactive learning objects to the digital teaching content while continuing to use the existing authoring environment and processes.

Why I Love Instructional Design

I Get to Craft Learning Experiences! I wanted to make it my mission to make learning more engaging, effective, and meaningful. I wanted the audience to leave their learning experience feeling as though they actually learned something that they could apply, tangibly within their work and/or life. Being able to craft learning experiences allows me to put myself in the learners’ shoes, and make learning an enjoyable experience. The Backstory.

What Type of MOOC Is Right For You?

Which style of MOOC is most effective depends on the training goals of the organization and the learning outcomes the employees are expected to achieve. This taxonomy is useful in determining the right type of MOOC for different training needs. These courses deliver content primarily through “talking heads” videos and assigned readings and they assess learning outcomes using online quizzes and tests. Think of a mini-MOOC as just a single learning unit.
