The human brain is capable of 1016 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations. The lowly calculator can do math thousands of times better than we can, and our memories are often less than useless — plus, we're subject to cognitive biases, those annoying glitches in our thinking that cause us to make questionable decisions and reach erroneous conclusions. Here are a dozen of the most common and pernicious cognitive biases that you need to know about.

If your content does not add any value to your audience, they will be less likely to engage with it, regardless of what you post. And although it can sound like an ambiguous word, “value” can be anything, such as discounts, special offers or knowledge shares , and if done correctly, it can prove to be a short-term investment with long-term results.
If you feel like you might be lagging behind with content, make sure you rework your strategy and create engaging and value-centric content that your audience can easily consume and digest. Be right there with your customers throughout their way to purchasing and ensure that your brand comes to their mind first when they need what you offer. Be creative and get there first.

There are several types of eLearning courses, but if you want to create an effective one, then there are some ideas you need to follow every time. Cr
Are you interested in creating an eLearning experience for your students, or are currently teaching online, but would like some tips to make your course more effective. This post provides 12 tips that will help you get started (or improve what you may have).
Below are four of the tips. Each is explained in more detail in the post.
* Understand your audience - To keep your audience engaged, you must understand their needs. Who are they? What do they require?
* Don't overload it - It is easy to add more information to a course, but this may overload your students. Be careful about how much is included and consider breaking information into smaller modules so that students can be more successful.
* Interaction to engage learners - Make sure that you design your course so it is interactive. Clicking quickly from one page to another may not help students learn the information. Encourage engagement through the use of quizzes, videos, and other interactive activities.
Much more is included in the post, and you will also find a link to a free e-book called Engage the Unengaged: How to Create More Engaging eLearning Courses.
We have to make that jump and actually put a course together. Not only for our program, but for us to learn some new skills that will be invaluable to our careers in the future.
