Emerging Occupations

Emerging occupations require new skills, knowledge and expertise in response to changes in the world created by new technologies, ideas, processes, services or products as well as the evolving needs of society.

These occupations provide opportunities to be innovative without the constraints of traditional occupation boundaries. Whether you are about to finish school, re-enter the workforce, or change career, an emerging occupation could be suitable for you.

Being Pretty Isn’t Enough: Using the 5 Cs for eLearning Visuals

Being Pretty Isn’t Enough: Using the 5 Cs for eLearning Visuals | Emerging Technologies in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it
This post looks at a simple approach to creating effective visuals for eLearning by considering the 5 Cs.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 15, 5:32 PM

How do you create effective visuals? This post provides 5 Cs to help guide you. Make sure the visual is:

* Clear

* Concise

* Connected

* Compelling

* Complete

Why is this important? People remember visuals, more so than words. As you create a visual make sure that it is easy to understand, that it shares critical information, that it engages the learners.

For each of the 5 C's consider the questions below (quoted from the post).

* Will a visual help make a point clearer?

* Will a visual summarize a point better than text?

* Will a visual help learners make connections?

* Will visuals make content more attractive?

* Will a visual help complete an idea?

Each of these questions are explored...and of course, each has a visual to help us understand the reason. Although the post is addressing eLearning, the same concepts apply in a face2face classroom.

Readers don't draw a line between self-publishers and trad publishers

Readers don't draw a line between self-publishers and trad publishers | Emerging Technologies in Academic Libraries | Scoop.it

Consumers don't make a distinction between traditional publishers and self-publishers when buying ebooks, according to a wide-ranging new study.

 

The Book Industry Study Group’s latest report, Consumer Attitudes Towards Ebook Reading, also shows that readers prefer ebooks over print books in 10 out of 14 subject areas, including all fiction genres.

 

Ebooks have a big lead over print in all areas of fiction, covering romance/erotic, mystery/thriller, general, religious, young adult, science fiction/fantasy and literary.

 

The ebook lead is narrower in non-fiction for business/finance and history/politics/social sciences and print takes over for how-to guides/manuals and travel while comics/graphic novels and cookbooks are preferred in print by a long way....

Annika McGinley's insight:

This doesn't surprise me at all - without the tangible branding that screams out from the cover, ebooks level the playing field.
