The Six Ingredients That Make eLearning Courses Relevant

The Six Ingredients That Make eLearning Courses Relevant | Horse And Rider World | Scoop.it

"In eLearning, creating relevant and meaningful experiences for your target audience has always been the best way to capture learners. On the contrary, if your learners have no interest in your course, the information you have sent will convey very little value and success... Much experience through trials of eLearning has identified the best way to teach students is to focus on the relevance of course material; too much theory that extends beyond the tasks they will actually be responsible for confusing the situation, or at the very least, retarding the utility of the course. When time is a premium - which it always is - the best eLearning courses make sure that the instruction that follows is directly applicable to the subsequent tasks."

Dennis's AHA! Moment on Scoop.it

Dennis's AHA! Moment on Scoop.it | Horse And Rider World | Scoop.it

Dennis's original goal when joining Scoop.it was to create a resource for his audience. He initially began using Scoop.it to "re-purpose years of blog content and … share his extensive reading lists." In doing so, he learned that Scoop.it could actually serve as his own social media dashboard, and was "immediately impressed" with the ability he had on Scoop.it to manage so many media outlets.

 

With this power, Dennis was able to begin curating content on the major themes of his expertise: writing, information fluency, e-learning, and online teaching. While creating these reading lists and collections of his previously published blog content, though, Dennis realized that his readers weren't the only ones benefitting from his curation. He knew that Scoop.it would be a great tool to organize and share his lists, but what he didn't exact was that there would be more people out there interested in what he was posting!

 

After using Scoop.it for some time, he has found that he can continue to build significant audiences for his topics. He has used Scoop.it as a tool to publish to three different Facebook pages, a WordPress blog, two Tumblr blogs, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and Stumbleupon.

 

By sharing his content to all of these different channels from the same place, Dennis is able to save time and expand his reach. He has become an increasingly influential figure in Information Fluency and E-Learning and continues to learn more about these topics each day as he curates and shares new information for his readers.

On his retirement, English farrier James Todd worries skills may soon be lost

On his retirement, English farrier James Todd worries skills may soon be lost | Horse And Rider World | Scoop.it

British farrier James Todd may be looking forward to his retirement after 50 years of shoeing horses but he is also deeply worried about the future of his art and the standard of farriery in the 21st century.

 

@hoofcarejournal writes: Our old friend James Todd is retiring? Say it isn't so!

 

This article is a terrific interview with the always-outspoken Mr. Todd, and includes a terrific slide show of his forge in Great Warley, Essex, near London.

 

Worth a click! Just click on the headline or image to open the original article in the "This is Essex" newspaper in England. There's a wonderful slideshow, too!

Spammy Website Test: How To Tell If Google Considers Your Website Unreliable

Spammy Website Test: How To Tell If Google Considers Your Website Unreliable | Horse And Rider World | Scoop.it


Robin Good: If you have been wondering whether your lowering traffic is a consequence of Google penalties or whether your blog or website is at risk of being soon hit by one of Google filtering algorithms, here is a great set of questions to ask yourself before deciding on what course of action to take.

 

From the original article: "Let’s say you’re a sole proprietor who’s hired someone to do SEO for you.

 

Or maybe you manage a marketing team, and SEO has always been one of those things you wish you had time for but decided to outsourceinstead.

 

How do you know that the SEO you're outsourcing is truly legitimate and won’t result in your website being considered spammy?

 

...So, how do you know if your website is spammy?

 

And what should you do to make sure it isn't considered *GULP* web spam?"

 

Among others, four typical traits of web sites "at risk" of being classified as spammy are:

 

1) Low use of social media

 

2) Over-optimized content, use of keywords, text manipulation

 

3) Many 404s and broken links

 

4) Lots of ads on the page

 

But there are at least four more that you should be aware of.

 

 

Useful. Good reminder to those too concerned with SEO and too little with creating unique, valuable content. 8/10
