Organisations are increasingly recognising the business benefits of combining bite-sized chunks of personalised content that can be delivered to the desktop in real-time with learning techniques such as shorter classroom-based training sessions and on-the-job line manager training.
Take a look at our Leading Virtual Teams Learning Pathway Infographic. With a mix of pre-work, a web-based session delivered by a facilitator, case study assignment, a face-to-face session and Action Learning Project, we are sure to provide solutions that are engaging, creative and have maximum business impact.
Don't cut your training budgets; develop a leaner, more efficient training machine.

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

The Cornell Notes strategy is one possible model students can use, in addition to combination notes, REAP strategy, and others. When used in combination with technology, students are able to activate key brain areas during learning, while also retaining critical information for future review.
How Noteaking Is Changing
"It’d be easy to fall victim to hyperbole here and suggest that notetaking is the stuff of electricity and holograms, but that’s only partly true. Today, 40% of students prefer a mix of physical and digital notes. In the digital classroom then, the primary shift parallels blended learning: a mix of physical and electronic information that serves as a compromise between “old” and “new” learning.
"In the digital classroom, recording pens, tablets, laptops, audio software, and social media make recording, reviewing, sharing, and storing these notes different than it was even 10 years ago. The infographic below explores how."

While of course we here at Online Universities are online education’s biggest fans, there is still something to be said for the magic that happens when a group of bright, inquiring minds come together under one roof. Some of the world’s most incredible research has come and continues to come from traditional colleges and universities in the United States and around the globe. These are some of the most amazing projects going on now.
