5 Free Ways to Find Visuals to Make Your Next Presentation Shine | E-Learning | Scoop.it
If you want to give a knock-out presentation that grabs your audience and
keeps them engaged, it’s essential to use eye-catching images that
illustrate your message. One of our top Prezi designers, Meaghan Hendricks
, knows a thing or two about picking the right visuals. Her advice: "You
want your visuals to enhance what you are saying, not distract from your
message. Using powerful images that provoke emotion will help your audience
understand and remember your presentation."

Want to Make Your Course ‘Gameful’? A Michigan Professor’s Tool Could Help – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Want to Make Your Course ‘Gameful’? A Michigan Professor’s Tool Could Help – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Mr. Fishman doesn’t define what he’s doing as gamification. In his opinion, that buzzword refers only to superficial elements of games, like points and leaderboards. He prefers to talk about “gameful design,” which he describes as applying the positive attributes of gaming systems — like establishing clear goals and giving players multiple routes to success — to the classroom.
D G Stevenson's insight:

The focus on "gameful design" in course design is an interesting idea. I look for forward to watching how this project develops and what the developers discover.

D G Stevenson's insight:

This quote caught my eye: "lecture is among the least effective instructional strategies, even really, really good lectures". The author builds a good argument as to why this is true and that all higher ed. faculty should receive training in instructional strategies and pedagogical theory.

MOOCs Emerge As Disruptors To Corporate Learning

MOOCs Emerge As Disruptors To Corporate Learning | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Three years ago, Thomas Friedman, Op-Ed Columnist for the New York Times wrote the forward looking column Come The Revolution where he summed up the disruption of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) on higher education in this way: “Big breakthroughs happen when what is suddenly possible meets what is desperately [...]

Via Rapid E-Learning
D G Stevenson's insight:

Some interesting observations and conclusions as to the potential disruptive effects of MOOCs on corporate learning. However the sample size of the survey discussed is quite small. The high cost of developing a MOOC continues to be a barrier for any but the largest corporations. But reviewing what developers of MOOCs are finding to be the most successful learning strategies and activities for their students is very useful information that can be applied to other learning delivery methods.

This is an excellent overview of the current thinking about trends and current thinking about workplace learning. The data shown about the impression learners in the workplace have of E-learning is really not surprising.
