Rob Hubbard

In an ideal world these tools allow your subject matter experts (SMEs) to create elearning content in a matter of days.

ReD is Dead

Rob Hubbard

This month we bid a fond farewell to our much cherished and long-running Rapid eLearning Development (ReD) course. It included eccentric characters (a hell-raising brain in a jar and a thespian pirate, amongst others), 3D games in tombs and deserts, collaborative mindmaps, videos, rapid elearning, interactive webinars and more, all accessed from a social network. Plus I wanted to develop another open course (or two) in a goal-based learning format.

You (Probably) Have the Technology

Rob Hubbard

As well as our free online Rapid eLearning Development (ReD) course we also deliver a one-day workshop covering some of the same material. Quite regularly people ask us which elearning author tool they should buy, the assumption being, you must have an elearning author tool in order to create elearning. With the rise of mobile devices and tablet computers, people increasingly want access to their learning on the move and from whichever device they have on them.

Coactivism – A Learning Model

Rob Hubbard

For many years now I’ve been dissatisfied with how training is delivered and in particular the concepts of ‘classroom’ and ‘elearning’. In 2009 I developed a new learning model that addresses the issues as I see them. Since then I’ve been trialling this learning model in our Rapid eLearning Development course. Here you can see a recording of a Pecha Kucha session I delivered at an eLearning Network conference in June 2011.
