5 eLearning trends you should know

5 eLearning trends you should know | |
Elearning has evolved quite a bit in the past 10 years. Everything from the way the courses are presented to the images used within them (remember ClipArt?). What constitutes quality elearning design and delivery is as cyclical as the fashion industry. For example, one year drop-shadows were all the rage and the next it is all about flat design.

Trends go beyond the visuals and can also determine how the content is delivered. Bullet points have dominated the elearning scene for a long time (and probably will not be going away anytime soon), but not there are new ways to present information, such as with images.

Insightful, thought provoking videos about transmedia storytelling

Insightful, thought provoking videos about transmedia storytelling | |
Here are some videos about transmedia storytelling. A few of the videos tend to be more focused on marketing of products using transmedia but could transmedia be used for learning and instruction? There is one video of an experience of students in Florida that does link it to education and one about using it for training within corporate organizations. How can transmedia storytelling be used to propel learners into an immersive experience that helps them retain knowledge and change behavior?

Targeting 6 social learning needs in eLearning environments

Targeting 6 social learning needs in eLearning environments | |
When it comes to successful eLearning design, everybody should agree that there’s no such thing as too much information about how the human brain operates. It’s wired for social learning. Our respective environments actually shape our brains and the rest of our bodies.

An interesting three-minute video by Paul Burow discusses the application of neuroscience to organizational development. It covers six social learning needs we think can be applied to eLearning. Targeting these needs will result in more effective eLearning courses.

What will learning look like in 2024?

What will learning look like in 2024? | |
About a month ago I saw a question from the eLearning Guild asking for people’s input on what learning will look like in 2024. Since that day I’ve been thinking about it and meaning to write down my thoughts.

There has since been a discussion on the topic, and several others who wrote down their thoughts.

Here are my thoughts on what learning will look like in 2024. I also hope to see some comments on where you think learning will look like.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 7, 2014 11:15 AM

The section on reality is worth reading several times. The authors argue that little will change in learning in the next decade. There will be a few on the cutting edge and most still trying to control learning. There are many out there who have convinced themselves that their efforts fit the former group and yet are firmly in the latter group.


The initial question was drawn from a group referred to as a guild. Guilds were groups of craftspeople who were artisans in their work and craft. That would be teaching.



10 eLearning design and development mistakes

10 eLearning design and development mistakes | |
As any eLearning professional will attest, learning from our mistakes allows us to become better in every aspect. On the other hand, wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way to bypass all of the downsides of mistake-based learning, while still reaping all of the benefits? Well, to save yourselves from the trial and error, and the cost and frustration that come with hard-won experience, be aware of the following eLearning practices that can hinder the overall success of your eLearning deliverable.

¿Sabes lo que son los 3 mundos del conocimiento?

¿Sabes lo que son los 3 mundos del conocimiento? | |

Karl Popper teoriza que hay tres mundos de conocimiento:

  1. El primer mundo es el universo físico. Consiste en la verdad real y la realidad que tratamos de representar, como la energía , la física y la química . Mientras que existimos en este mundo , que no siempre percibimos y representamos correctamente.
  2. El segundo mundo es el mundo de nuestra percepción subjetiva personal, experiencias  y la cognición . Es lo que pensamos acerca del mundo al tratar de trazar, representar y anticipar hipótesis con el fin de mantener nuestra existencia a lo largo de los cambios de la vida. El conocimiento personal y la memoria configuran este mundo, que se basa en la autorregulación, la cognición, la conciencia, disposiciones y procesos.
  3. El tercer mundo es la suma total de los productos abstractos objetivos de la mente humana. Se compone de “artefactos” tales como libros, herramientas, teorías, modelos, bibliotecas, ordenadores y redes . Es una mezcla muy diversa. Mientras que el conocimiento puede ser creado y producido por el “Mundo 2″, sus artefactos se almacenan en el mundo 3. Popper también incluye la herencia genética.

3 ways to bring live blogging to the classroom

3 ways to bring live blogging to the classroom | |
Live blogging is a blogging technique used often by journalists and others who want to capture an event moment by moment and post it to their web site. Teachers might be able to take advantage of this trend by introducing live blogging to their students. It might just generate more interest in class by connecting their love of all things social media with what is happening in their classroom. I know, I’m an optimist wrapped in a cloak of idealism. Stay with me; I have a plan I’d like to share.

I became interested in live blogging after I saw some education web sites using the technique to blog from conferences. Some used Twitter for such a purpose, attaching a hashtag to the tweet. Others, however, were live blogging directly to their blogs. “How are they doing that?” I wondered aloud. I also wondered how I could add that to my classroom routines. Google provided some useful information about live blogging and two sites that seemed promising: CoveritLive and Scribblelive. The technology seems fantastic, but the prices are not. After reviewing the sites, I knew what I wanted.

Gamification at work: What employees really think

Gamification at work: What employees really think | |
You may already be familiar with many of the most prominent case studies: Deloitte increases the number of weekly returning users for their Leadership Academy by 37%. SAP repurposes training materials into an online gamification platform and increases new hires’ awareness of SAP products and services by 75%.

These case studies are a testament to gamification’s power to increase the effectiveness of eLearning programs for business.

But these and other prominent case studies leave out one important factor: how do the employees feel about using engagement software? In the flurry of gamification hype – some of which is warranted and some of which is unfounded – the perspective of employees is constantly missing from the discussion.

Rather than being included as active participants in the conversation, employees are often relegated to statistics after a program has been implemented. To find out what employees actually think about gamification software, TechnologyAdvice surveyed a random sample of 398 office-based employees to discover if they thought adding digital engagement elements to their work would help them.

We limited the Do Office-Based Employees Want Digital Engagement Programs? survey to employees whose main job functions included marketing, customer service, or sales. Some of our key findings included:

6 great tools to share your computer screen with others | |
There are different reasons why you want to share your computer screen with others. For instance you want to walk students through the process of using a certain web tool or installing an app, sharing your computer screen with them will allow them to see what you are doing right in your computer. This is also a good way to either give tech help or receive it from others. There is nothing better than watching the process unfolding right before your eyes without having to leave your computer screen. Whatever you motive for wanting to use screen sharing, this collection of web tools is definitely a good place to start with:

Connected courses MOOC (#ccourses) and #oclmooc: Communities dealing with violations  

Connected courses MOOC (#ccourses) and #oclmooc: Communities dealing with violations    | |

We shouldn’t be surprised when we discover that our communities—onsite as well as online—are less safe than we expect them to be. But we are. Because we really do want to believe the best of people even though so many of them/us prove to be less than worthy of that trust. Which is probably why “trust” and “community and collaboration” are among the important aspects of online learning currently receiving attention both in the Connected Courses MOOC (#ccourses) and the Open and Connected Learning MOOC (#oclmooc) communities of learning.

These two connectivist massive open online courses (MOOCs) are creating a wonderful sense of what is possible in well-managed and well-supported communities of learning. They are also providing ample opportunities—some of them unanticipated—for us to celebrate the positive side of online interactions and to react and respond to the less savory side of the online world—rather than abandoning online interactions completely.

10 possibilities: Badges for progressive credentialing in academic programs | |
What is progressive credentialing? It is pretty much what it sounds like. Instead of just getting one massive credential at the end of an extended degree program, this is about issuing smaller credentials along the way. Each credential represents acquisition of new knowledge or skill, building up to that final degree or completion of an overall program. How much this help improve upon the current educational system? Here are ten possibilities.

Why we should treat teachers like Software Engineers

Why we should treat teachers like Software Engineers | |
Schools should also have career advancement opportunities for exceptional teachers. We need to offer teachers opportunities for professional growth within the classroom. As a recent New York Times article about math education points out, it’s common for teachers in Japan to practice instructing in front of an audience of educators and university observers — providing less experienced teachers with valuable feedback on how best to engage students and stimulate learning. By creating roles for master teachers — senior educators with strong pedagogy, interpersonal skills, and curriculum understanding — to observe and mentor newer teachers, U.S. schools would both increase retention and also improve learning experiences for today’s students.

8 great ways to use technology in the classroom to create lessons that aren’t boring | |
Dozens of free web tools and ideas that can pack a technology integration punch and kick those lessons up a notch

Are you tired of delivering the same old lectures on the same subjects year after year? Are you using the same lesson materials over and over and wishing you could make learning in your classroom more interactive?

While lectures and lessons can be informative and even “edutaining” when delivered with passion and good materials by knowledgeable experts, sadly many traditional lectures and lessons are boring, and even worse often ineffective. The good news is that the Web is loaded with great free tools that can enable teachers to bring a sense of fun and engagement to their lessons.

‘Gamification’ is dead, long live Games for Learning

‘Gamification’ is dead, long live Games for Learning | |
The “gamification” concept goes something like this: Take an existing set of activities – say banking, or exercise, or rote schoolwork (the more mundane the better, apparently) – apply a set of “game rewards” in the form of points (or leveling, or badges), and as if by magic the world will become more fun, workers more efficient, and learning more effective.

As a game designer of more than twenty years, this idea rubbed me wrong. Like, really wrong.

Most people understand that wearing the right baseball glove will not magically allow them to throw pinpoint fastballs, and they get that listening to K-Pop will not suddenly teach them to speak Korean.

Yet as a game designer, it was painful to listen to the education world talk about gamification as if it was a special sauce that can be applied to any existing task in order to improve performance. As a practitioner of game design, I know that this special sauce just does not exist, especially when it comes to K-12 learning.
