Tim Boileau's insight:

Interesting paradigm shift for media consumption and storytelling...instead of viewing video (embedded in pages) on the web; it's placing the web into your video. For desktop and tablet computing.

A première, un concept intéressant pour dynamiser et rendre interactives des productions vidéos... A voir ce qu'il est réellement possible de faire avec une App iPad pour importer de bonnes séquences vidéo et éditer un produit efficacement.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 20, 8:04 AM

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.
