10 cosas que llaman la atención de los estudiantes (y cómo aplicarlo en eLearning) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Incluso más que otros tipos de educación, el eLearning debe luchar para atraer la atención de los alumnos: Internet está llena de distracciones y los estudiantes adultos están a la vez más ocupados y más libres para disfrutar de las distracciones. Ayudar a los estudiantes a prestar atención es el interés principal de los educadores, capacitadores y profesionales en eLearning, así que aquí le presentamos algunos de los métodos óptimos para ganar el juego de la atención.

10 tips for effective Problem-Based Learning: The ultimate instructional solution

10 tips for effective Problem-Based Learning: The ultimate instructional solution | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Problem-based learning (PBL) was first introduced to the field of education in the 1960s by medical education specialist Howard Barrows, who argued that the teaching of medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada should be organized in a way that emulated the reasoning of a skilled practitioner.

Monash University was the second institution to adopt PBL within a medical school environment and continues to apply this within its Faculty of Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences for the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programs delivered in Australia and Malaysia. More than 80 percent of medical schools in the U.S. now use some form of PBL.

PBL has been adopted in nearly every discipline imaginable, including math, law, education, economics, business, engineering, and physical sciences. In Malaysia, an attempt is being made to introduce a problem-based learning model in secondary mathematics, with the aim of educating citizens to prepare them for decision-making in sustainable and responsible development. Aalborg University in Denmark has created its own “Aalborg PBL model” which combines problem orientation with project organization for enhanced student learning.

Right from picking up a new attire, and buying a car to moving into a new home, and much more, design informs our decisions and experiences at large, so much so that it can make us feel elated or weary. Work space design, on the other hand, can directly affect our productivity. Design governs the choices we make both consciously and subconsciously. Such is the influence of design on us.

We recognize how crucial the WizIQ Virtual Classroom design is in ensuring that you do your teaching and learning activities seamlessly while feeling great about being in a live class. With that in mind, we have introduced the snazzy new Virtual Classroom design which centers on aesthetics and usability.

[PDF] Success in the cloud: Why workload matters

[PDF] Success in the cloud:  Why workload matters | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


With the implementation of cloud computing internally, across six fundamental IT workloads —development and test, analytics, storage, collaboration, desktop and production application workloads— we have witnessed striking improvements in efficiency while capturing some impressive savings in capital and operations. Consider that:

  • IBM development teams have seen server provisioning and configuration drop from five days or longer to as little as one hour. IBM’s development and test cloud has virtually eliminated IBM’s testing backlog, speeding new development and enabling applications to reach the market sooner.
  • IBM’s analytics cloud put an end to siloed business intelligence (BI) and the six-figure funding required for new BI projects. Organizations across IBM are tapping into a centralized analytics cloud for tools and intelligence aggregated from hundreds of information warehouses. The business value of these analytic insights is estimated to be more than USD $300 million for the top 20 consumers of the service alone, out of approximately 300 active projects. 
  • IBM’s Virtual Storage Center cloud cut the cost-per-byte of data stored by nearly 50 percent at each of the IBM facilities in which it was implemented. This has allowed the facility to accommodate the explosive growth in storage demand—25 percent or more annually—without increasing its total storage budget, and it is expected to be able to do so for four straight years.
  • IBM Connections, our social software platform in the cloud, has dramatically increased workplace collaboration, productivity and innovation, while enabling IBM to locate and stay connected with clients, and build awareness of our products and services. The cloud currently supports over 50 million web conferencing minutes per month.

Después de años luchando porque los alumnos no usen el celular en el aula, las nuevas tendencias educativas van precisamente en dirección opuesta.

El teléfono móvil o celular no solo es Whatsapp y Facebook, sino que puede ser usado en multitud de escenarios desde una perspectiva educativa. Para demostrarlo, en este artículo reunimos 40 usos del celular que tienen cabida dentro del aula.

Ojo, esto no significa que, de repente, debamos cambiar nuestro método de enseñanza y permitir el uso del teléfono móvil sin control. El propósito de este artículo es simplemente que eliminemos nuestros perjuicios en torno al celular y que consideremos las nuevas posibilidades que tenemos a nuestra disposición. Para llevar a cabo un uso responsable del celular por parte de los alumnos, es conveniente establecer límites y reglas.

4 ways to apply Instructional Interactivity in eLearning

4 ways to apply Instructional Interactivity in eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The design of effective eLearning environments relies primary on cognitive load’s management and the enhancement of their instructional efficiency. Interactivity plays a great role in the latter, as instructional interactivity stimulates your learners’ minds by responding to their actions and helping them constructing and demonstrating the knowledge you are offering them. Instructional interactivity should not be confused with eLearning interactivity. The instructional interactivity concerns interactions between learners and eLearning applications and systems, whereas eLearning interactivity is about interactions between learners and the content of the eLearning course.

In other words, eLearning interactivity relates to a plethora of mechanical actions that learners are required to do in order to perform tasks, such is eLearning navigation, whereas instructional interactivity involves cogitative, deliberate activities on the learners behalf, in order for them to achieve eLearning objectives. Instructional interactivity, when done right, motivates learners to think, analyze, reflect, and learn effectively, so it is crucial that it is carefully designed.

According to CCAF Design Model by Dr. Michael W. Allen, the four components of instructional interactivity are Context, Challenge, Activity, and Feedback. In this article I will examine each component separately and show you how to effectively apply them in your eLearning course, so that you can offer your audience a powerful and highly interactive eLearning experience.

Instructional Design Models and Theories: Keller’s ARCS Model of Motivation

Instructional Design Models and Theories: Keller’s ARCS Model of Motivation | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
John Keller is the founder of the ARCS Model of Motivation, which is based upon the idea that there are four key elements in the learning process which can encourage and sustain learners’ motivation. These four elements form the acronym ARCS of the model and stand for Attention, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction (ARCS). In this article, I’ll describe each one of them and I’ll share some of the eLearning strategies that eLearning professionals need to know in order to develop really engaging eLearning courses.
Edumorfosis's insight:

¿Que muestra el último estudio sobre los MOOC’s? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Hoy, un equipo conjunto de investigación de MIT y la Universidad de Harvard publicó una de las mayores investigaciones de cursos abiertos masivos online (MOOCs) a la fecha. Basándose en el trabajo previo de estos investigadores – un informe de enero de 2014 que describe el primer año de cursos abiertos en línea lanzados en edx, una plataforma de aprendizaje sin fines de lucro fundada por ambas instituciones – el más reciente esfuerzo incorpora un año más de datos, para un total de cerca de 70 cursos en temas que van desde programación hasta poesía.

“Exploramos 68 cursos que certifican a sus estudiantes, 1,7 millones de participantes, 10 millones de participantes por la noche, y 1,1 mil millones de registros en actividades programadas online “, dice Andrew Ho, profesor de la Escuela de Educación de Harvard. El equipo de investigación también utilizó encuestas para obtener información adicional acerca de antecedentes de los participantes y de sus intenciones.

Tres preguntas para hacerse antes de elegir la tecnología en la educación

Tres preguntas para hacerse antes de elegir la tecnología en la educación | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La tecnología en educación está de moda. Apenas pasa un día sin leer un artículo o tener una conversación en la que alguien argumente que “la educación es la única industria que no ha adoptado las tecnologías del siglo 21″. El mundo ha cambiado – así es como sigue el discurso – y, mientras que cualquier otra industria se ha adaptado, la escuela no lo ha hecho.


Suena convincente. Sin duda, debemos abrazar las herramientas y las tecnologías que ayudarán a los educadores a ser más impactantes. Pero no debemos hacerlo porque funciona, no por el bien de la obsesión moderna de la humanidad con el progreso, la novedad, la innovación y lo disruptivo.


Para asegurar que los educadores eligen la tecnología por las razones correctas, aquí hay tres preguntas que puedes hacerte antes de elegir la tecnología para el aula.

[Infographic] Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach

[Infographic] Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach Infographic explains why Microlearning is the ideal training solution for employees’ shrinking attention spans! We need a new way to solve for society’s shift towards hyper attention and Microlearning is the answer. Small, bite-size lessons solve for dwindling attention spans, while serving learners and trainers better than traditional training in a variety of ways.

In the Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach Infographic you’ll learn:

  • How we’re moving into a culture of ‘hyper’ attention and what that looks like.
  • How rapidly changing technology is affecting individual workers, businesses, and driving a $1.3 trillion loss to the economy.
  • How Microlearning is changing the face of training with a 300% increase in speed of production while costing trainers 50% less.

5 tips to develop custom eLearning that improves employees’ performance

5 tips to develop custom eLearning that improves employees’ performance | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Knowledge is not enough. Your employees might be provided with a flawlessly design for the online training course, but this doesn’t mean that they will automatically be able to use the imparted information. When you are offering your employees an online training experience, your main concern is how they will apply the knowledge to improve their skills by motivating them to perform better. Effective online training means facilitating the application of knowledge, as it is directly linked to performance improvement. But which is the most effective approach to performance-focused online training? Undeniably, custom eLearning development. Why? Because only an online training course especially designed for your employees can really reflect your company’s needs and specific performance issues you want to address.

Working out loud 101: Some thoughts

Working out loud 101: Some thoughts | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I think John Stepper's description of "working out loud" is still the best:

Working Out Loud starts with making your work visible in such a way that it might help others. When you do that – when you work in a more open, connected way – you can build a purposeful network that makes you more effective and provides access to more opportunities.

Here's a nice comic strip style graphic illustrating the 5 key elements of "working out loud". I am not sure who has created it and hence couldn't give the right credits:

The elements of "working out loud" need to be broken down into implementable steps to help someone get started with actually putting it into practise. I am typically confronted with the following questions when I tell someone that they should start "working out loud"...I have inserted my responses below each question. I have tried to keep them concise.

7 tips for conducting UX testing for multi-device eLearning

7 tips for conducting UX testing for multi-device eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Multi-device eLearning majorly aims at providing a well-rounded user experience for every type of target device. What this means is that through its flexible design, the course will adjust to the learners’ devices—text will be rearranged, layouts will adjust, images will get cropped, target touch areas will change, etc. For multi-device eLearning courses to be successful, it is very important that courses are not only tested across platforms but also from the user’s perspective.

This brings us to User Experience (UX) testing. As the name so obviously suggests, it simply is the process of understanding the users’ experience with the eLearning course. It includes everything your users see, hear and do; the rationale behind their actions; and their emotional reactions to the results.

Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader

Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The higher education IT enterprise has become complex. No longer simply responsible for provisioning IT infrastructure and services, the IT department increasingly helps re-envision business and service models, all in a context of cost and accountability pressures. IT is simultaneously more challenging, relevant, and exciting than ever; leading IT requires unique characteristics and capabilities. But what qualities make for a successful IT leader in this environment? What traits are required to be a strategic player for IT on campus? What are the most significant gaps in required knowledge, skills, and abilities? How do we prepare the next generation to lead?

In 2014, EDUCAUSE, the association of IT leaders in higher education in the United States, and Jisc, the national organization supporting the use of digital technologies for higher education and research in the United Kingdom, came together to address a common concern — that insufficient attention is paid to understanding the skills required by technology leaders in higher education, both now and in the future. The two organizations convened a working group of 10 U.K. and U.S. IT leaders to address this issue, and this article outlines their findings. It provides the higher education IT community with a model to guide IT professionals at all stages of their careers and to position technology as a central part of advancing the core mission of the academic institution.

Bullets in eLearning: Friend or Foe?

Bullets in eLearning: Friend or Foe? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
OMG! Did you just shoot the learner?

What did you do? Did you misfire a bullet? Or did you pump in too many bullets?

Be careful. The bullet is a powerful weapon. You must use it wisely to create the right "impact."

We are talking eLearning here. And the bullets are those little black dots that instructional designers are either obsessed with or hate with a vengeance. The former breed litters their courses with bullet lists—an overkill. The latter group avoids bullets like the plague; they probably do not know how bullet lists make learning matter more comprehensible.

As an instructional designer, you have to tread the middle path. Do not pay heed to what the fatalists say. Bullets are not bad. Period. On the other hand, don't be too trigger-happy either. Use bullets wisely to make your courses look good, read intelligible, and make sense to the learner. But before shooting off the tips, here's what you must remember about bullet lists:

3 ways to avoid Cognitive Overload in your eLearning course

3 ways to avoid Cognitive Overload in your eLearning course | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Here’s a scenario that is quite familiar to learners and designers alike; John, an employee in XYZ corporation, was asked to take an eLearning course as part of the company’s training requirements. John sat down enthusiastically in front of the computer and said to himself, “This must be fun.” He clicked the launch button of the course and started his training. Five minutes into the course, John went spiraling down into confusion with the amount of information that was being thrown on him and was frustrated and disappointed. John clicked the close button and went on to do his work.

Such a scenario is the result of providing too much information for the learner to absorb in an eLearning course. However, this can be avoided in three simple ways.

Utopías y distopías... de la atemporalidad al mobile learning

Utopías y distopías... de la atemporalidad al mobile learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

“El aprendizaje personalizado”, propio e implícito en nuestros estudios y prácticas reales, se puede llevar a cabo donde, cuando y cómo se quiera, por lo que las modalidades formales, no formales, informales, en vez de estar segmentadas como hasta ahora, ya se “mezclan” entre si, con lo que el concepto de lo que conocemos por EDUCACIÓN, cambia radicalmente (germen de la Educación Disruptiva).


Con todo ello seguimos investigando y aportando nuevas maneras de entender y hacer las cosas, incluso empleando pedagogías comparadas, tanto de buenas como de malas prácticas, como por ejemplo en la utilización de elearning por las universidades, otras organizaciones profesionales… formulando un documento que etiquetamos como : Bases para un eLearning-inclusivo (2004-2005) de Juan Domingo Farnós, que se ha propagado por latinoamérica y el caribe y otros lugares de Europa, Canadá y estados Unidos y por lo que hemos podido saber, por Asia.

Este documento ha tenido un recorrido con variaciones en el mismo en investigaciones y posteriores formaciones, en otras tipologías de aprendizajes: MOOCs, Aprendizaje invertido….lo cuál lleva a dar testimonio de lo que decíamos: “lo que dejamos en la red….” , y todo ello aprendiendo a través de la diversidad, del soporte de las TIC, de la Inteligencia Artificial,…, trazando caminos y procesos escalables y distribuidos y nunca objetivos ni siquiera competencias, todos ellos de carácter preconcibido.
