The eLearning Coach

Every day, we engage in sense-making from a torrent of information. And we attempt to help others construct meaning in the learning experiences we design and provide. Information is ubiquitous and complex. In this episode, we discuss ways to create understanding from raw information.

Could e-learning content be the key to solving your corporate learning challenges?


Relaying this back to business partnerships, if customers and partners begin to feel their learning programs are lacking synergy, structure, tailored experiences, and ease of use, they will not feel confident in the business they are doing with you. Related: Personalized learning at scale?

Why Millennials Love Microlearning


The key to doing that job effectively is microlearning , a method that uses small moments of learning to drive better job performance and development. They expect information to arrive not in big bundles, but in a torrent of small morsels. Microlearning is the most effective way to learn on mobile. Micro learning on their favorite devices is a natural progression. More learning moments mean more personalization. Microlearning Millennials E-learning

How to replace top-down training with collaborative learning (1)

Jay Cross

x what’s broken, let’s imagine what ideal corporate learning would look like if we could start over from scratch. They have to keep up with a torrent of new products and services, not just their own but also their competitors’. Continuous learning is the only way they can keep up. Their work has become learning, and learning is the bulk of their work. But this way of learning – autonomous searching and social collaboration – has not yet been re?ected

Electronic Learning System: Which one is best?

Ed App

Traditional learning and corporate training has always revolved around gathering students together, in one space, and talking at them before quizzing them to see how much information was absorbed. The rise of Electronic Learning, or eLearning , broke down some of those boundaries: it helped make learning more interactive and also allowed learners to learn off-site in remote locations. So what should you look for in an Electronic Learning System ?

Pokémon whoa!

E-Learning Provocateur

I hadn’t planned to play Pokémon Go myself, but given its sheer popularity I felt it would be remiss of me as an e-learning professional to forgo an informed opinion. Predictably, Pokémon Go has provoked a torrent of criticism from non-players, and I say some of it is warranted. When I was a teenager I was addicted to video games. Not stay-awake-for-three-days-and-die-of-starvation kind of addicted, but I would spend every conceivable moment playing.

The top two reasons why brainstorming sessions fail


Do you really think you could learn to ride a bicycle by reading those directions? All of a sudden, the team produces a torrent of creative ideas.

Post-production is the part of video-making that scares Learning and Development folks the most, probably because they know the least about it.

Wonderful Brain

How do we pluck just the right information we need from this torrent of bits? When building a learning course for example, your subject matter experts deliver very specific information as they must do. Whether one has the time or inclination to make the effort to go shopping for more information is dependent on time and budget, yes, however, when looking to make learning better and richer, drinking from the stream is often a task worth enduring.

Disorienting Dilemmas, Eye-Opening Openings, and Inspirational Closings: Online Training 101


So, why are so many training courses kicked off with the bland formula of: instructor introduction, list of learning objectives, and bulleted list of the training topics? Disorienting Dilemmas Lead to Transformative Learning. Transformative learning is an evolving educational concept which helps the learner to transform his perspective, leading to behavioral change. Cause the learner to critically consider why she should intellectually engage in your learning content.

The Proof of Gamification

Growth Engineering

Learning associations are vital to an effective training programme. Dopamine is the chemical driving force of learning associations , and your brain releases loads of it whenever you’re surprised. If you want to send a torrent of dopamine coursing through your learners’ brains then astound them with unbelievably exciting training. But what happens when you take the learning out of the laboratory? When learning is gamified it’s more enjoyable for learners.

Why Online Employee Orientation is important?


is an important part of human resource management, and an ideal fit for an e-learning solution. An e-learning system is a perfect fit for employee orientation purposes for several reasons: – The new employee can take the e-learning orientation course at his own pace, while still getting on with everything else that he has to do in his first days or weeks. – An e-learning orientation course can use the LMS system to track attendance and completion status.

Why I don't like Twitter

Learning Rocks

I find it very useful and it has probably become my number one personal learning tool over the last year*. However, I am becoming increasingly sceptical about its use as a social learning tool in any organised sense and in particular, there are some characteristics of how it is being used that frankly I'm not altogether comfortable with. Perhaps this is because there are lots more conferences in the learning tech arena, perhaps not. If we count only work-relevant learning.

Sun, Elite, and the future

They lack the discipline to put in the hard work to learn things the way you and I did when we were in school. Learning professionals know that the incoming generation is not going to put up with what has passed for corporate training since the 70s. Corporations that don’t offer employees the freedom to learn with others will end up with the dregs, not the top talent, and will fail to survive as a result. This is a group that learns from nano-nuggets.

But I thought it a good starting point for a new blog about performance, learning and productivity. In early 1939 McGraw-Hill published a profound little book that should be on the reading list of everyone involved in learning and training today. Below I’ve recounted (and adapted) some of Professor Peddiwell’s lecture because I think we can learn from it when we reflect what’s happening in the training and development world. This first post is a long one.

Now, the torrent of information generated by the ever increasing stream of new developments has rendered this impossible. My home page links to my public-facing material: blogs, videos, Flickr, SlideShare, popular articles, several communities, free chapters from Informal Learning, and so on. For example, I set up a Google search that limits what it finds to learning voices I trust; another pulls answers only from people on John Hagel’s blogroll. Feeling lost?
