eProductividad eLearning: trabajo en red

eProductividad eLearning: trabajo en red | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

A menudo las TIC son exprimidas hasta el infinito y más allá como receta mágica para “enganchar” a los alumnos de un curso eLearning, sin embargo, nos olvidamos de ellas en los que a buen seguro serán los momentos más importante de cualquier proyecto formativo: las fases de diseño y desarrollo, fases en las que participan (o deberían participar) diferentes profesionales, cada uno especializado en un área de conocimiento o trabajo concreto.

LMS is old news: Enter the era of the eLMS

LMS is old news: Enter the era of the eLMS | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

LMS is quickly losing ground to eLMS. The latter is a hybrid of social media, communication platforms, and engagement features that foster higher collaboration and informal learning. This particularly stems to the lack of flexibility and technological capabilities traditional LMSs have. This post discusses what to look for in an eLMS and how its average features can be used to increase interaction and collaboration.

 

Most of us in Learning and Development (L&D) have our horror stories about Learning Management Systems (LMSs). Many of these stories usually stem from poor implementation practices and the inability for LMS vendors to meet dynamic business needs. However, the reality is that you can't return valuable actionable data in Learning and Development without having a Learning Management System. Why? Well, running around with paper quizzes and 300-page binders is not very effective, is it? Let's admit it; we need an LMS, but not just any LMS: We need an eLMS! The "e" stands for enhanced and that means the eLMS comes with amazing enhancements which make a traditional LMS obsolete. Let's take a look at the traditional LMS versus the enhancements of an eLMS.

Creating eLearning solutions for an enterprise-wide global audience: 4 challenges and how to overcome them

Creating eLearning solutions for an enterprise-wide global audience: 4 challenges and how to overcome them | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The market for eLearning services and platforms is growing rapidly in the corporate environment. eLearning programs are being utilized for various purposes, including employee training, organization on boarding, process training, soft skills training, and so on.

The global eLearning market is growing at the rate of 15.06 percent, making it one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Driving this growth is the massive popularity of handheld devices, such as mobiles and tablets, which is heralding the era of mobile learning.

Additionally, cloud-based learning platforms (SaaS platforms) are also growing in popularity. These platforms can be accessed through the internet and there is little or minimal setup required on the learners’ end. This makes eLearning an affordable and viable option for corporations of all sizes and varying needs.

In step with the growing popularity of eLearning solutions, organizations have to think strategically about the structure and the outcomes they hope to achieve before any eLearning content is created across the entire organizational spread. Global eLearning solutions can help companies drastically cut travel and employee training costs, as well as improve efficiency while retaining a uniform international company culture. However, there are many challenges when creating a global eLearning initiative, which can lead to unnecessary cost or delays in rolling out the initiative. By following the best practices of eLearning content development, organizations can avoid common mistakes and create impactful learning content for international learners.

“The craft of delightful experiences” Design Thinking in eLearning

“The craft of delightful experiences” Design Thinking in eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Here on the Elucidat blog we’re on our way to serving 500,000 learners and along the way we’re sharing the stories of that journey, especially what we learn about the processes, engineering and design methods that underpin practical, easy-to-use tools for producing exceptional elearning.


In this post we want to take a look at building a culture and way of thinking that can help you make elearning that will delight your customers. We know that success is often dependant on interpreting your customers’ requirements accurately and translating those interpretations into end products which solve their problems. This requires good design skills which interrogate your clients’ problems, iterate solutions and reach a product or service which is useful and address those problems. Good design is no longer optional.


So today, we’ll delve into Design Thinking and see what it can teach us in the elearning world.

The temporal perspective in higher education learners: Comparisons between Online & Onsite Learning

The temporal perspective in higher education learners: Comparisons between Online & Onsite Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Higher Education increases flexibility with online learning solutions. Nevertheless, dropout rates in online university are large. Among the reasons, one aspect deserving further study is students’ Time Perspective (TP), which has been studied in onsite HE. It is necessary to know the TP profile of the growing population of online students, and consider its relation with students’ preference and convenience factors for choosing online or onsite contexts. In this study, learners’ TP in an online and an onsite Catalan HE institutions are compared. Results show that HE students present a high future orientation in general, while online students showed a higher orientation to past negativism. Basic guides are given to help institutions and students in the choice of the better suited learning context according to their TP.

Preparing virtual learners

Where would virtual training be without virtual learners? Clearly, we need to set them up for success. Although participants have a wide range of backgrounds, skills, and technical experience, all must learn to navigate the virtual learning environment. We must be aware that participants need to "learn how to learn" all over again in this new medium. But how do you prepare them?


There are two very distinct ways for you to tackle virtual learner preparedness - bottom-up and top-down.

State of the eLearning industry

State of the eLearning industry | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The elearning industry is growing, which of course is not news to anyone, but the growth is certainly welcomed!


There is plenty of speculation out there as to why the industry is growing, each valid in their own right, but if we look at it from a practical standpoint the answer is pretty obvious: because it’s easy.

Oh, and it saves money too!


Docebo, a cloud learning management system provider, recently released the inforgraphic below detailing some of the growth facts related to the elearning market.


Looking through some of the reported statistics, the one that grabbed my attention was the fastest growth segments. It seems that the further east you go, the faster the growth, with Asia and Eastern Europe leading the pack.


The primary market drivers still tend to be large corporations, which could coincide with the rise of elearning use in the Asian markets. Many companies are setting up a branch in this part of the world for economic reasons, naturally bringing their elearning methodology with them.


The market itself is expanding in all directions, in areas such as rapid elearning development tools, learning management systems, and mobile learning. As we improve our mobile technology, expect even bigger growth in the mlearning market.


2016 is projected to bring big revenues for the industry, jumping all the way to $51.1 billion. To be honest, I have a hunch that this number may be lower than what will actually be generated, primarily because the rapid growth of technology is closely related to the elearning rapid growth.


In other words, the more “techy” we become, the more natural elearning (and all its forms) becomes, and the more money that is spent.


One thing is for sure, it is an excited time to be involved in elearning!

La enseñanza on-line

La enseñanza on-line | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La educación on-line, es una modalidad de la educación a distancia, que utiliza Internet con todas sus herramientas tecnológicas de la información y la comunicación para realizar el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje. Cuando se desarrolla mediante operaciones electrónicas y en las redes, se denomina educación en línea o e-learning, cuando está completamente virtualizada y  trabaja por medio de una plataforma: un espacio o portal creado específicamente para dicho fin, que contiene herramientas que apoyan el aprendizaje del alumno. Puede relacionarse en ocasiones con una enseñanza semipresencial, (blended learning).

 

Es una modalidad de la enseñanza a distancia pues el alumno no se encuentra presencialmente con el profesor, sino que busca sus propios lugares para conectarse, su casa, su lugar de trabajo, un ciber-café, una biblioteca... El profesor no está presente y en ese mismo momento  (síncronamente), sino que puede hacerse en cualquier tiempo, sin coincidir necesariamente con los otros alumno o con el profesor (asíncronamente).

 

Tiene en cuenta la importancia mediadora de los medios que utilizan la tecnología digital, y la convergencia de diferentes lenguajes, en un mundo globalizado económicamente, en el que hay conceptos, contenidos y estructuras que no pueden ser ajenas a la red, a la interacción, a la interculturalidad, al trasvase vertiginoso de la información, a estructuras no lineales y a la responsabilidad de los usuarios como productores de información.

 

Debe tener en cuenta, cuando participa de los principios de la educomunicación, de dirigir la mirada en los principales problemas del mundo: la participación de todas las personas, la defensa de los derechos humanos, la multiculturalidad, el medio ambiente, la paz, la libertad de expresión y de comunicación...

9 key players you need on your eLearning dream team

9 key players you need on your eLearning dream team | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Behind every successful eLearning project is a winning eLearning team. In this article, I'll highlight the 9 key players that you need to have in your eLearning dream team, so that you can produce extraordinary eLearning experiences.




The famous philanthropist and steel magnate, Andrew Carnegie, once said: "Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." Seamless collaboration, a strong work ethic, and shared goals are the hallmarks of an effective eLearning project. In order to achieve this, however, you need a carefully selected eLearning team on your side. Each professional must play their part in the process to deliver an eLearning course that exceeds expectations and achieve learning objectives, on time and on budget. Here are the 9 key players of the eLearning Dream Team.

Profitable uses of online learning in Higher Education

Profitable uses of online learning in Higher Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
For many online learning in higher education means either the use of online video-based for-credit classes or massive open online courses (MOOCs). While the research completed by ExtensionEngine (EE) confirmed that these are indeed the most common approaches, the company also found two other significant opportunities for earning sustainable revenue from online learning: pre-matriculation programs and post-graduation programs. In this article I describe what is covered by EE’s white paper and highlight some of the significant research findings.

While online for-credit classes and MOOCs are the most common approaches in higher education, making the commitment to these types of learning experiences requires a strong organizational commitment from the college or university. In the first case, for-credit classes are highly valued by faculty. Any new technology or delivery method can face lots of hurdles before it can be integrated into the curriculum. In the second case, a MOOC has, almost by definition, a huge public audience http://bit.ly/1KYoBgt. This makes it extremely important to the institution, thereby requiring a significant investment of time, money, and the school’s best faculty. Both of these situations necessarily slow down the usage of online technology.

How can you create a wonderful eLearning course? What does it take to delight your online learners? Well, you need to focus on the design of your course.

However, design is often overlooked or misunderstood by eLearning developers. As long as the course looks good, they think that visuals are sufficient. But, design affects the way a learner takes the information. Therefore, it should be engaging and learner-friendly and “match” the objective of the course. Here is an info-graphic which lists the aspects you need to consider to design a good online course.

Social Network of Learning Resources – Learning Registry

Social Network of Learning Resources – Learning Registry | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


Learning Registry a framework to facilitate the exchange of data to share resources, as well as information about how those resources are used by educators in diverse learning environments across the Web. Led by Dept. of Ed, White House as well as numerous other government agencies and marketplace providers.


The Learning Registry provides a platform with which any person or application can “surface” or uncover the best possible learning resources for any given topic, experience, and audience. The system facilitates the sharing of metadata and paradata about content in order to simplify the process of helping users find distributed digital learning content online. It works “behind the scenes,” by providing a logistical network (an “interstate system” for learning resources) that allows data about learning resources to travel among a federated set of nodes.


The Learning Registry’s logistical network simplifies the process by which developers can create interfaces for search and discovery and rating of resources. This network enables educators to post, annotate, and review resources for broad pickup by other educators. It facilitates the exchange of ratings and opinions about the usefulness of those resources as well as their alignment with the Common Core and other state academic content standards. The idea is that teachers will continue using the same applications and websites they currently rely on; they’ll just have broader reach because those applications and websites can leverage the data through the Learning Registry.

Enhancing real-time learning with visual technology

Enhancing real-time learning with visual technology | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

For decades, in-class lectures have provided a serviceable way to relay information, but times are changing. Technology is shifting how we communicate information in the classroom and, more importantly, how our students comprehend and retain that information. However, simply adopting technology is far from enough to benefit our students.


As humans’ attention spans continue to shorten, it is imperative teachers are able to clearly communicate information to their students right when they need it in real time. In a traditional teaching environment, it would be impossible to lecture a room full of diverse learners and meet all students’ learning needs.
