What’s Missing In Your Online Training Evaluation - And How To Fix It - eLearning Industry

What’s Missing In Your Online Training Evaluation - And How To Fix It - eLearning Industry | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
The Kirkpatrick evaluation model is the gold standard for assessing online training programs, but most organizations can’t use it to prove ROI.

The Kirkpatrick Model [1] was developed to help trainers measure the effectiveness of their training in an objective way. It’s the most recognized method of evaluating a training program’s ROI. But without the means to measure and analyze the right data, many organizations can’t make full use of the model.

Why should educators measure learning analytics? 

Why should educators measure learning analytics?  | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

As a Solutions Architect for Leo Learning (one of our Moodle Partners), Peter Dobinson uses “big data” to measure results.


In his MoodleMoot UK & Ireland 2017 presentation, Peter shared with us how educators can use analytics to measure the impact of learning.


He also explored how doing so can improve teaching and learning experiences. In this article, we summarise Peter’s presentation, which you can, of course, view from the link below.


So let’s start with….what is learning analytics?

Top 10 tips to improve the security of your Moodle site #moodletips

Top 10 tips to improve the security of your Moodle site #moodletips | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Security of a Moodle site is an incredibly important issue for all Moodle site administrators. Following the much publicized ransomware “Wannacry” and “Petya”, it is much more stringent task for all Moodle site administrators to keep their Moodle sites secured. In educational sector, data security is an incredibly important concern and it makes the job of a Moodle administrator more responsible.

As more and more sensitive data is stored on your Moodle server, you need to be competent enough to handle all such disasters. As the old proverb says” Prevention is better than cure.” It makes complete sense to be close all the security holes and be ready for any disaster.

Moodle also provides a security overview report where you can see the current status of security on your Moodle site. It is available for site administrators in Administration > Site administration > Reports > Security overview.

The principles of learning to design Learning Environments

The principles of learning to design Learning Environments | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

The overview section presents: a) the Learning Principles themselves, b) the Principles recast around teachers and educators. These Principles maintain that learning environments should: make learning and engagement central; ensure it is understood as social; be highly attuned to learners’ emotions; reflect individual differences; be demanding for all while avoiding overload; use broad assessments and feedback; and promote horizontal connectedness. Tool 1.1 gets learning environments to interrogate how well they are organised so as to optimise young people’s learning, using either a relatively rapid scan or more profound review. Tool 1.2 builds on the Learning Principles through a Spiral of Inquiry as developed in British Columbia, Canada. Tool 1.3 puts learners centre stage by getting schools to juxtapose the perceptions of staff with the views of learners themselves. Tool 1.4 recasts the Learning Principles so that they are focused on the educators, leading to the identification of priorities and strategies for action.

Take It Outside! With Treasure Hunt For Moodle

Take It Outside! With Treasure Hunt For Moodle | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
The Treasure Hunt plugin allows teachers to create real-life treasure hunts and quests using geolocation and QR codes. Students can use mobile devices to participate in the adventure taking place in the world at large without having to download any special app.

The hunt is made out of one or several roads, each of which is made out of several stages. Teachers and designers can create them by drawing on a built-in map editor. They can also create activities, such as multiple-choice questions, that students must solve once they reach the destination to check it off their road. Bonuses and penalties can be added according to a variety of criteria.

The treasure hunt can count toward course grading as well. The educator can provide absolute marks or competitive (relative) ones by setting 100% of the grade to the best finishing time. Completed activities or “riddles” can also be set to define the grade. Penalization can be set as a percentage as well.

To use Treadure Hunt in the field, students can access the website from their mobile browsers. Developer Juan Pablo de Castro informs us the website features a QR code reader that works in Chrome and Firefox for Android or iOS 11 devices.

Will iBeacons revolutionize Manufacturing eLearning?

Will iBeacons revolutionize Manufacturing eLearning? | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
iBeacons are small (about the size of quarter), inexpensive pieces of wireless technology that give location-based information to smart phones and tablets via a low energy Bluetooth signal. Apple released iBeacon technology with iOS7, but the technology is also available on Android devices.

The purpose of a beacon is to enhance the user’s overall experience, connecting the online world with the physical world. Beacons allow you to push location-based information to anyone who has the app. They can detect how far the iBeacon is away from the user and perform a function like open a website, push a location-based reminder or notification, offer up a video, animation or audio file, or even help guide the user to the beacon.

Beacon applications are just starting to emerge in many industries – from retail and education to hospitals and airports. Retail will be a key application. Imagine shopping in a store or mall and receiving special promotions or additional information about a product when you are within its proximity. Or even be able to find a product’s location via mapping technology. I can pretty much guarantee you’ll be seeing this new technology in a store near you soon.

So, how can this powerful new technology be used in training?

Moodle Community Platform to Offer Closer Ties to OER, Crowdfunding Mechanism -- Campus Technology

Moodle Community Platform to Offer Closer Ties to OER, Crowdfunding Mechanism -- Campus Technology | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Martin Dougiamas, the founder and CEO of the Australian company that drives development of the open source learning platform Moodle, does not mince words about the conflict he sees between open and proprietary developments in educational technology and in society at large. 

"There is a bit of a war going on around the planet right now," Dougiamas said in his opening comments to a recent Future Trends Forum video chat hosted by futurist Bryan Alexander. "We find ourselves at the vanguard of people who believe in openness, who believe in social good and social justice. On the other side of the fence, as you have in your country right now, there is a corporate takeover of the government. There is an increasing effect of very large, wealthy organizations focused on profits and increasing the inequality gap and focused on commercializing public services."

Speaking from his home in Perth, Australia, Dougiamas said he has started to refocus Moodle's activities to do a more effective job of spreading openness — particularly in education. "Education affects every other thing that human beings do on this planet, so it is important work."
