[Infographic] 6 formulas for the perfect Pinterest

[Infographic] 6 formulas for the perfect Pinterest | |
Pinterest is the biggest social network for visual content, and that includes infographics. It’s one of my favorite places to browser and discover new infographics. (You can follow us on Pinterest here).

With so much content on Pinterest, how do you make your infographic stand out? What are the characteristics of highly pinned and liked Pinterest infographics? To answer these questions, we looked at over 200 popular Pinterest infographics and manually evaluated them based on a series of qualitative and quantitative characteristics. We looked at a variety of dimensions such as topic, type of infographic, dominant style, expected reaction, number of story points, font, colors used, chart types, the ratio of length to width. Although a few people evaluated the infographics, we did a big normalization process within the team to make sure that all of the infographics were coded consistently on each dimension. To measure the performance of the infographics, we looked at the number of pins and likes. Which is a better indicator? For Pinterest, pins are a far better indicator of success as pinning is a combination of liking and sharing and is the main user action on Pinterest. Based on our research we identified 6 factors for a great Pinterest infographic. You can view the infographic summary and read the details in the writeup that follows below.

Summative Assessment in eLearning: What eLearning professionals should know

Summative Assessment in eLearning: What eLearning professionals should know | |
Summative assessment in eLearning is used to determine whether or not a learner achieved the learning objectives and reached the desired level of proficiency. Typically, a summative assessment is administered at the end of an eLearning course, and provides learners with a final grade, in contrast to formative assessment, which identify areas that may need improvement and pinpoint their strengths DURING the eLearning course. For example, if a learner passes a summative assessment at the end of an eLearning course, it may earn them a spot in the next eLearning course. In this article, I will highlight 5 different types of summative assessment in eLearning, as well as 4 tips for integrating them into your eLearning strategy.

¡La formación es a veces un problema!

¡La formación es a veces un problema! | |

"Tu cerebro necesita para olvidar las cosas que ya no son útiles. Y este olvido es inevitable, es útil, y es adaptable, ya que borra su memoria para las cosas que son más relevantes. El problema, sin embargo, es que en el proceso de todo esto purga memoria, nuestro cerebro a menudo se olvida de información importante" (Art Kohn).

Esta investigacion demuestra que los estudiantes olvidan el 70% de lo que se les enseña en 24 horas y se olvidan de 90% después de una semana.

LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda: Is vLearning the new word?

LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda: Is vLearning the new word? | |
Welcome to today’s blog post. It’s been quite some time since something really interesting happened in the eLearning industry; something that could bring in a new face to the domain, something that could leave a mark for years to come. A couple of months ago, the renowned career skills educator company has been purchased by LinkedIn for an amount of $1.5 billion. The amount and the acquisition has taken many experts by surprise, leaving a few that have already visualized the learning revolution which could surface only through social media integration into learning. Let’s dig a little deep into the origins of Lynda and try to understand what this acquisition means to the future of the training industry.

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 | |
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.

No organization is an island

No organization is an island | |

Organizations are alive when people can exert their autonomy in ethical practice. This aligns with self-determination theory, which puts forward three basic needs for people: competence, autonomy, and relatedness. Even progressive organizations often miss out on the latter, described by the authors as an, “inherent tendency toward growth development and integrated functioning”. It takes more than a simple organizational structure to afford this relatedness. The organization must be alive.

So in what way are human organisations alive? Fritjof [Capra] answers this question by saying that a human organisation is only alive when it contains networks of communication. These informal networks of communication he refers to as communities of practice and in larger organisations there are clusters of communities of practice. Therefore for Fritjof “the aliveness of an organisation resides in its communities of practice, flexibility, creativity and learning potential”. – Transition Consciousness

7 tips for being a successful online student

7 tips for being a successful online student | |
Over a third of all higher education students are taking at least one of their courses online, and more than 12% are enrolled in online courses exclusively. Clearly students, professors, and colleges are all coming around to the idea of distance education.

Online courses do come with their own share of challenges though. Some students may find that in spite of dreams of earning a degree in their pajamas, being an online student isn’t actually for them. If you’re intent on giving online learning a try, making sure you’re prepared for what to expect can make a big difference. These tips can help.

Peer coaching builds community and improves writing skills in online courses

Peer coaching builds community and improves writing skills in online courses | |
Writing assignments handled in the traditional way go like this: the instructor helps the student select the topic, the student submits the completed paper, and the instructor comments on and grades the paper. Most students look at the comments and grade for a just few moments and that ends the learning process. Research shows that minimal learning occurs this way.

In my experience, the quality of research papers increases dramatically by introducing peer coaching, a process by which students are paired to coach, encourage, and support each other. Both the student writing the paper and peer coach are graded on their participation.

[Infographic] 5 incredible aspects of a well-designed eLearning course

[Infographic] 5 incredible aspects of a well-designed eLearning course | |
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.

La Educación Disruptiva rompre la "indefension aprendida"

La Educación Disruptiva rompre la "indefension aprendida" | |
Acabo de terminar una web conference con mi amigo caraqueño (Venezuela) Luis Germán Rodríguez Leal y ha salido un tema dentro de nuestro trabajo de Educacion Disruptiva (learning is the work) que considero muy tascendente y que calro voy a analizar y mucho. La gente de Venezuela que quiere aprender de manera ubicua con sus smartphones y por tanto dentro de lo que entendemos por Mobile learning y que como VARIABLE hay que tener en cuenta en el momento de desarrolar nuestras propuestas.

NOs estamos encontramos con tantas variables que el trabajo en red sera basico asi como el trabajo COOPERATIVO, muy por encima del colaborativo, ya que las iniciativas individuales y/o sociales, conformaran un MAPA diverso que sumara un valor creativo que de otra manera es importante llevar a puerto.

[PDF] How to build a 21st Century Learning Ecosystem

[PDF] How to build a 21st Century Learning Ecosystem | |

Technology is moving faster than ever. And with it, the skills and resources people need to do their best work are rapidly changing.

Recognizing this, organizations large and small are throwing huge sums of money at employee development. But their efforts to close the digital skills gap, amplify employee engagement, and  strengthen cultures are generally failing.

Why? 21st century employees are different, from the way they engage in workplace tasks to how they consume content. Their demands are different. Their attention spans are shorter. Even their brains are rewired.

Because of these rapid changes, learning and development leaders need a new framework for building successful learning programs that meet 21st century challenges. This is how to do it.

Seminario Internacional: Los sistemas educativos en contextos de inmersión tecnológica

Seminario Internacional: Los sistemas educativos en contextos de inmersión tecnológica | |

En la última década se evidenció un importante proceso de integración de tecnologías en los sistemas educativos en el mundo y América Latina no ha sido una excepción. La irrupción de los denominados Modelos 1:1, así también como propuestas denominadas aulas digitales o aulas móviles, han conmovido el escenario de la educación en la región.

Dos motivos dan cuenta de ello. Por una parte, las políticas de integración TIC constituyen una oportunidad indelegable para el desarrollo de acciones democráticas desde el Estado tendientes a la justicia y la inclusión social, en particular aquellas destinadas a garantizar el derecho a la educación y la democratización del conocimiento de todos los ciudadanos. Por otra parte, el desarrollo de las tecnologías resulta uno de los elementos centrales en la conformación de un nuevo escenario económico, político, social y cultural. Sin embargo, en un contexto de fuerte desigualdad y heterogeneidad, subsiste el interrogante acerca del sentido de este proceso y su impacto tanto a nivel social como pedagógico ya que las tecnologías no están al alcance de todos. Mientras que muchos acceden a la cultura digital, otros no lo hacen o lo hacen limitadamente. En América Latina, existen brechas en el acceso y la calidad de la tecnología, y también en relación con el capital cultural y las habilidades para usarla. Las brechas digitales son correlato de otras brechas: sociales, culturales, económicas y educativas.

A su vez, existe también una brecha entre lo que los estudiantes esperan de la escuela hoy y lo que ésta les ofrece. Es preciso asumir que los jóvenes que crecieron acostumbrados a convivir con las tecnologías, con una relación más intuitiva pero también más acrítica, constituyen nuevos sujetos de aprendizaje. Así, se suele describir a estos estudiantes como más habituados a acceder a la información a partir de fuentes digitales no impresas; a dar prioridad a las imágenes en movimiento y a la música por encima del texto; a sentirse cómodos realizando múltiples tareas simultáneamente; y a obtener conocimientos procesando información discontinua y no lineal.

En este sentido, la educación formal debe renovar sus propósitos, funciones y sentidos asumiendo su responsabilidad social para la formación de las nuevas generaciones. Al mismo tiempo, la inclusión de las TIC en los sistemas educativos constituye una oportunidad para revisar y actualizar los procesos de enseñanza y de aprendizaje en la búsqueda de una mejora de su calidad.

Estos cambios implican la necesidad de reconfigurar el diseño pedagógico de la escolarización para transformar los viejos paradigmas y poder dar cuenta de las necesidades de estos nuevos jóvenes y niños que entran en el sistema en contextos de alta disponibilidad tecnológica.

El objetivo general del seminario es producir un espacio para el debate sobre el impacto que se produce en sistemas educativos con inmersión tecnológica en sus aulas, analizando tanto las orientaciones generales de las políticas TIC en Educación desde un enfoque de derechos, como las tensiones que tienen lugar entre la digitalización de la escuela y la escolarización de lo digital.

Los principales destinatarios del seminario son especialistas, investigadores, docentes, estudiantes y otros actores vinculados a las temáticas de TIC y Educación.

[Infographic] 6 phases of an effective Instructional Design process

[Infographic] 6 phases of an effective Instructional Design process | |

It is common knowledge that online training is self-paced and dropout rates are high. Therefore, the greatest challenge before an instructional designer is to develop a learner-centric e-learning course that keeps learners engaged throughout.

However, every organization has its own instructional design process for developing e-learning courses. A good instructional design process is one that ‘smoothens’ the overall development of the e-learning course.

Here is an info-graphic which lists 6 phases of an effective instructional design process.

[Infographic] The 4 types of compatible standards in eLearning development

[Infographic] The 4 types of compatible standards in eLearning development | |
So, you’re in and getting started with eLearning. Now that you’re developing courses for your organization, your focus should be on standards of eLearning. A standard is a frame of reference which qualifies what is good and what is not. The standards of eLearning help you improve the quality of learning delivered through online courses and track and report learners’ performance.

The ASTD has come up with certain standards of eLearning courseware development and categorized them into 4 groups, and one of them is about compatibility.

The compatibility standards address the relationship between the courseware, operating system and related applications. There are four simple but important standards under this group, and let us see what they are in the info-graphic below.

Profitable uses of online learning in Higher Education

Profitable uses of online learning in Higher Education | |
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 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.

Algunos obstáculos de la educación en línea

Algunos obstáculos de la educación en línea | |
El desarrollo de las TIC´s así como su paulatino y lento avance penetrando más usuarios, la ampliación de la capacidad de conexión, y el diseño de diversas herramientas, entornos y aplicaciones de la web, hacen posible hoy día que la educación en línea se posicione cada vez más ampliamente entre el público consumidor de educación. El ideal de la educación continua, educación permanente o educación durante toda la vida que Jacques Delors planteaba a finales del siglo XX, hoy se ve potencializado de manera radical por los desarrollos y capacidad de penetración de los servicios de la web. Es claro que las instituciones educativas de la actualidad se mueven en general con dinamismo en el aprovechamiento del nuevo cauce en línea por donde dirigir la educación.
