3 Things Google Can Teach Us About Microlearning

Keep it simple.
In an age when the temptation to add widgets to websites can be almost overwhelming, Google has stuck with a blank white page adorned only by a one-word logo, a search box, and two buttons. Similarly, microlearning is best when it follows the Albert Einstein adage to “make things as simple as possible, but no simpler”. If we want to accomplish real behavior change in a 5-minute web module, everything in that module must be dedicated to the same purpose. The media, the activities, the text – all must be focused on the same goal. Even worthwhile objectives like “learner engagement” detract from microlearning because the format creates its own engagement. Google works because it’s a user-friendly way to find what we need quickly. Microlearning must be the same.

Want To See Just How Easy It Is To Build A Lesson In Moodle? | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

I’ve never been to a meeting with anyone where they said, “You know, I was wondering how I might put a little more work on my plate.” This holds for pretty much every profession out there, but as we all know, especially for the teaching community.

So, when I ran across this video by Chris Kenniburg about how easy it is to build a lesson in Moodle (he does it in just under 5 minutes), I knew I needed to share it

[PDF] Instructional Design Now: A new age of learning and beyond

[PDF] Instructional Design Now: A new age of learning and beyond | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Although business leaders may not equate excitement with the topic of instructional design, perhaps they should. Instructional Design Now: A New Age of Learning and Beyond, a collaboration of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp), explores a learning landscape rich in emerging opportunities, populated by professionals eager to create and unleash content that drives employee development and organizational performance.

A century ago, education systems and instructional design (ID) were shaped by the concepts of scientific investigation and empirical knowledge. Fifty years later, instructional systems, as well as their components and properties, were revealed in the writings of Robert Gagne, James Finn, and others (McNeil 2014). Today, instructional design is at the core of an organizational learning industry that finds itself inundated with new tools, technologies, and approaches. Many instructional design professionals seem to find this atmosphere exhilarating and challenging. “So many tools and resources allow for better design and greater creativity,” explained a training and workforce development director working in state government. On the other hand, a public-sector learning program manager admitted difficulty “keeping up with the pace of technology and having the skills necessary to successfully develop for that environment.”

Instructional design appears to be retaining many traditional touches, despite the constant challenges from evolving technologies, corporate expansions taking employees’ learning needs global, and perennial struggles for funding and support. Live, instructor-led classrooms are still widely used in organizations, and other personal-touch learning methods, such as face-to-face coaching and mentoring, continue to produce effective results.

But ATD and i4cp found that instructional designers don’t rate their profession’s overall efforts as highly as they might. Only about half of surveyed design and learning practitioners characterized their ID efforts as effective in helping to meet organizational business objectives. Far fewer believed that their instructional design was highly effective at addressing learning needs.

The diverse influences on instructional design today raise many interesting questions. Does formal education still play a valuable role in preparing designers for the challenges of the workplace? Are most organizations embracing high-tech options, such as mobile learning, social learning, and MOOCs? Which of the newer tools and approaches produce better learning results for companies? And what can instructional designers expect the next few years to bring?

Moodle plugins directory: Multi-Language Content (v2)

This filter is a greatly simplified multi-language filter. It uses very simple non-HTML tags to mark multi-language blocks. Namely {mlang XX} {mlang} pairs, where XX is the ISO6391 two letter code for the language (i.e., en, es, fr, eu, etc.). It uses the same tags as the filter_multilangsecond plugin (to be compatible with it), but there is one difference between the two. This filter allows standalone {mlang} tags that don't require adjoining alternative language tags. This makes the filter more flexible at the cost of potentially producing empty sets of tags.
