As the workplace moves faster, Learning & Development leaders must keep up to ensure employees can adapt. High-impact learning is the answer to this. It is not only fast-paced, but it also involves strategies to increase retention rates, so your students aren’t just learning quickly, they’re able to retain and apply that knowledge. A large part of a high-impact eLearning program’s success is that it involves people in leadership and management positions which help encourage and enforce learning. Results can be recorded and continual, leading to real changes in job performance.
The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering. The following seven points look at key principles from neuroscience research paired with tips that will allow course creators to achieve effective eLearning courses.
So you're going to start a new eLearning program? Are you apprehensive about getting buy-in from the stakeholders, developing the team, communicating, and leading the program? Then here are some time-tested tips to significantly reduce the time you get your project onboard, minimize risky surprises, and successfully close the project.
Micro Learning is a hot trend in eLearning design. We all know this. To get up to speed on the theory behind microlearning check out the resources at the end of the blog post. In the rest of this post, we are focusing specifically on calls to action. That is, how do you actually apply the principles of Micro-Learning to your eLearning design? Our hope is that by the end of this post you will be prepared to start thinking micro and create effective learning experiences.
The workplace in the modern world is changing: from the way we work, the behavior of employees, and even learning habits; nothing is unfolding as it used to be. Going even further, demographic changes in recent decades mean that a new type of worker is here, with needs and characteristics very different from previous generations. All these factors, combined, mean that the traditional learning methods (depending mainly on instructor-led format) may not be effective anymore in today's business environment. Workplace learning must evolve along with the changing needs of the workforce and the fast-paced economy.
In recent years we have experienced great changes in the workplace. As a result, we have seen an exponential growth of e-learning in companies. In fact, according to a report by consulting firm MarketsandMarkets, the eLearning industry is expected to skyrocket from $8.4 billion by 2020 to $33.2 billion in 2025 But before digging deeper, let's discuss: What is eLearning exactly? And what are the benefits it offers to both learners and companies? Continue reading.
The potentials and limitations of our brain shape the way we learn. Professionals, from psychologists to neuroscientists, have started to integrate brain research into online learning.
