Site Builder on eFrontPro 4.3: A familiar, brand new feature!

Everything you wanted to know about micro-learning (but were afraid to ask)

microlearning what is about it

Do you like microbes? If not, don’t worry because micro-learning has nothing to do with them, and is perfectly safe for your health.

Micro-learning (from the Greek word “micro” meaning small) is all about getting your eLearning in small doses, as tiny bursts of training material that you can comprehend in a short time (contrast with the hefty tomes you had to read at school to study a subject or the typical content-heavy eLearning class — which would be classified as “macro” learning).

The future of eLearning, part 2


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 (ILT) and social learning. We’re also going to tell you what’s probably going to happen with virtual reality technologies and wearables.

The future of eLearning: part 1


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.

West meets East: eFrontPro enters the Asian eLearning market


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.

eLearning for the travel industry with eFrontPro


It’s summer time (at least in this hemisphere), and hundreds of millions of people are already planning their vacations. Except travel industry people, who aren’t going anywhere, as they have to help all those millions plan, book and enjoy their holidays.

It’s a competitive industry, travel, and one where employees have to juggle tons of facts in order to help their clients – being able to help them find picturesque villas in South France, exciting off-road routes in the Australian Outback and cheap rooms to let in Santorini.

OpenSesame integration in eFrontPro 4.2.0


Have you checked out the latest eFrontPro 4.2.0 update? If you haven’t, you should.

It might sound like “just a point release” but, as usual with eFrontPro updates, it packs a mighty punch, with new features such as revamped ILT support, one-click upgrades, new question types, improved security and more.
