In this series of posts we stroke our elaborate moustaches, straighten up our turbans, and look into our crystal balls to determine the future of eLearning in 10 years time.
In our last future-telling session we discussed how mobile learning, MOOCs and gamification are only going to get bigger in the coming years.
In this post we’ll be examining a few more eLearning trends that will play an important role, namely Instructor-Led Training (IDT) and social learning. We’re also going to tell you what’s probably going to happen with virtual reality technologies and wearables.
Managers are crucial drivers for learning success within an organization.
Ever heard of the expression “learning organizations”? Well, managers are behind such organizations. Constant learning leads to innovation.
Organizations complain about the lack of the right human resources and training tools. Why? They do not see the expected results in performance. We hear too many companies complain of a gap between training and performance. They seem to have the required talent, the relevant knowledge, the needed tools and even the desired experience, yet they are unable to reach the company goals.
Extant research blames these failures on one element alone: lack of knowledge management. In this article, we present thirteen ways in which you can use your learning management system to manage your organization’s knowledge.
The best way to look like a fool is to attempt to predict the future. Like those well respected analysts back in the fifties, who said that by 2000 we will all have personal robot assistants and flying cars.
That doesn’t mean that predicting the future is impossible ― just hard. Besides, 50 years is probably a few decades too many.
In this post we’ll attempt to predict how eLearning will be in 10 years, a much more constrained and manageable task, not to mention far more useful for your business planning.
When we design courses, we inadvertently borrow many learning strategies from the K-12 classroom setting. Add to it the layers of andragogy (the science of teaching adults) and you have a well-rounded course.
Whether or not you are confident about including these learning strategies, go through this article. We will jog your memory and demonstrate how these scenarios play out and improve in the eLearning environment.
“We believe that learning can become better through technology, and we work hard to prove it. Our main product, eFrontPro, is a new type of learning tool that emphasizes the user experience without compromising functionality.” – eFront
In this third part of our series of behind-the-scenes posts, we’ll be interviewing Simon Birt, a recent addition to the eFrontPro team, who is in charge of the product’s global business development.
Contrary to tradition, the majority of the training in healthcare is now available as eLearning. Of course, there will always be courses that need to be facilitated via face-to-face, like CPR, but the rest of the statutory and mandatory training is completed in front of a PC at the learner’s convenience and pace.
In this post we will look at 5 tips on how you can boost the compliance figures of an organization, focusing primarily on healthcare.
In his famous “Ballad of East and West”, the 19th century english poet Rudyard Kipling writes, rather prematurely: “East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet”.
Little did he know that a little over a century later East and West would not only meet frequently and have plenty of cultural exchanges, but also become very good business partners.
Evaluating your eLearning course by the toughest judges – your learners, is the cornerstone of eLearning development. Receiving feedback from your learners enables you, the instructional designer, to improve your course.
Since iteration is a recurring step in the eLearning course design, it follows each time after the evaluation step.
