Using Brain Research to Design Better eLearning Courses: 7 Tips for Success

Using Brain Research to Design Better eLearning Courses: 7 Tips for Success | Communication design | Scoop.it

"The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 1, 2014 7:25 AM

As teachers we are course designers. We design a lesson and if we teach face2face we see immediate feedback while teaching. The same feedback is not as apparent online. One question that is being researched looks at what brain research tells us about designing better lessons, and what applies to eLearning typically applies to what happens in our classroom. This post provides seven tips, with an infographic that show each. Click through to the post to see more detailed information for each tip and to find additional resources.

Below are three of the tips:

* Favor recognition over recall

* Help learners avoid stress and fear

* Keep the working memory in mind

Want More Copywriting Clients? Here’s a Surprising Way to Find Them

Want More Copywriting Clients? Here’s a Surprising Way to Find Them | Communication design | Scoop.it

As a freelance copywriter, I’ve put together a nice portfolio of major corporate clients, ranging from Bay State Gas to Pizzeria Uno. And I found most of them in a rather unusual way.


I didn’t use SEO or pay-per-click. I didn’t go to networking events and shake hands with half the Rotary Club. And I didn’t take out billboards by the highway that said AWESOME COPYWRITER FOR HIRE.

 

I got most of these lucrative gigs in a way that wouldn’t cross many people’s minds — a way that’s unconventional and highly effective.

 

I sent them a sales letter.

 

Not the kind that’s an HTML page, but a good, old-fashioned paper letter in an envelope with an honest-to-goodness stamp.

Is Your Business Worth An Extra Hour Per Week? 5 Reasons Why Your Business Should Blog » Techipedia | Tamar Weinberg

Is Your Business Worth An Extra Hour Per Week? 5 Reasons Why Your Business Should Blog » Techipedia | Tamar Weinberg | Communication design | Scoop.it

As a business owner, do I really have time to blog? I’m a business owner too, and I realize that we are already pressed to our limits for time. We are responsible for everything, including finding new business, working with our existing customers, interfacing with suppliers, running our books, and infinitely more.

 

Attempting to convince a business owner that we should add yet another task can understandably seem like a herculean endeavor. For anything that is going to take more time, the rewards must be tangible and immediate. As many of us cannot clearly identify what the rewards are that can be reaped by blogging, it is not placed high on the list of priorities. It should be...

Why Your Brand Needs To Be More Visible On Facebook

Why Your Brand Needs To Be More Visible On Facebook | Communication design | Scoop.it
Traditional marketing still works, but working smarter means your brand maintains high visibility on the pages of Facebook.

 

The numbers are in — and they’re high. More than 800 million users have declared Facebook their digital home and anyone with a brand should be forging it on the social network.

 

Of those nearly billion users, half of them are actively trolling Facebook each and every day, making Facebook the poster child of the old saying, “if you build it they will come.”

 

And, apparently keep on coming, with 50 million users discovering the social utility every two months. Additionally, 350 million mobile users log on each day...

27 Traits Of Successful People

27 Traits Of Successful People | Communication design | Scoop.it

Is it really possible to become a successful person in just one day? I actually believe you can become a successful person in just one second.

 

Why? Because to be a successful person you only have to change your thoughts and start to think like a successful person. Your have to program your brain to respond differently to situations that it was previously refusing.

 

But how exactly are successful people made and how do they think? I’ve read and studied a lot of books on the subject, as well as experimenting and asking around. The following is list of 27 traits that distinguish successful people from ordinary people. If you take the commitment to apply every day each principle in your life, you’ll start to see amazing results in no time.

 

They are positive. Successful people don’t let negative events alter their ego. They see the glass half full and not half empty. They are known as the ones who raises positiveness among others. Benefits: other people want to stay with them because they make them feel better. They say yes to everything. They take every opportunity they can. They are not afraid of doing something new, like giving a talk in public. They take everything like a challenge with themselves...

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Is Fear Holding You Back? | Communication design | Scoop.it

Most people have areas in their lives where they would like to make some improvements. Is that true of you? Would you like to be in better shape physically, emotionally, mentally or financially?

 

That’s a lot of territory, I know. Perhaps you would like to make some positive changes in all those areas. Well, you are certainly not alone. I think all of us feel we have room for improvement in all those areas of life, I certainly do.

 

So what’s the problem?

 

If we see things in our life that we want to change, then what is it that is holding us back from doing it? Why don’t we just make the desired changes? Questions like that can sure give birth to a huge list of excuses, can’t they?...
