MOOCs are a huge opportunity also for small companies but often the term "small" comes with a lack of knowledge in this field. They are a great source of continuing education and training for zero or small budgets and less time consuming than traditional courses.

Joran Le Cren's curator insight, March 19, 2015 11:51 AM

Interesting article about the potential benefit of MOOCs for corporate training.

 

For the moment, MOOCs tend to be courses in the university format which is not so well adapted to skill learning (Coursera, EdX). Platforms like Udacity, Udemy or Skillshare are more skill-oriented. 

 

I would also mention the SPOCs (Small Private Online Course) that can be customized for companies. SpeachMe (http://speach.me/) enables to build your own SPOC for your company.

 

As the number of MOOCs and SPOCs go greater, Deskiss aims to curate and valorize learning content for companies.

The Tools You Need to Make Every Meeting More Productive

The Tools You Need to Make Every Meeting More Productive | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Meetings may seem like the ultimate hold-out against the digitization of working life: after all, what’s more analog than talking directly with another person? Even though the core work of a meeting — listening to and connecting with other people — hasn’t changed, there are lots of ways technology can make that work easier and more effective. Given how much of our working lives we spend in meetings, building a digital meeting toolkit is one of the smartest investments you can make in tech-savvy productivity. Here are the tools you need:

Lifelong elearning: Time to start studying again

Lifelong elearning: Time to start studying again | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Today, education is for everyone from all walks of life. To learn and gain more qualifications you can be old, young, employed or unemployed, a stay at home parent or a career climber...there are no limits to the education to which we all have the right.

 

In the past the standard education route was usually: study at school, move on to college, then perhaps university and then get a job. In addition you may have studied a few courses to further your career during your working life, or taken a couple of night classes on a subject you’re interested in.

 

These days learning is much more flexible and there are so many opportunities, due to the advent of elearning. You no longer have to find the time to sit in a classroom with a group of other students as elearning means studying in the comfort of your own home or office at a time to suit you.

Whether you are delivering training or pitching for the business – when you stand up and speak you need your opening lines to make an impact. Research has shown that the first 90 seconds of any speech have the most impact and are the most memorable. Therefore thought, time and effort spent on your opening is a worthwhile investment. If you can open your presentation with impact – you have a better chance of capturing and holding the attention of your audience.

 Are you reluctant to delegate to your employees?


Would you like to delegate more but are unsure of how effectively delegating some of your responsibilities will be?


Are you worried that by delegating responsibilities you will loose control of your business?


If you had a template that mapped out a path to effective delegation, such as that provided in this excellent infographic, would you be more inclined to delegate more?

Sudeep Sirur's curator insight, March 18, 2015 3:19 AM

(From the article): Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience’s interaction and interest.  A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

Apart from the corporate world, presentations are used in education as well. Teachers use presentations to deliver information that is successfully incorporated with videos and pictures, thus grabbing the attention of the students and enriching the learning process along the way.

While its hard to replace professional presentation designers, here is a list of some powerful tools that would help you to create interactive presentations in case of the absence of professional help.

How to Ask a Good Question

How to Ask a Good Question | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

We really don’t have to remember or know information. It’s easy and quick to find. Memorizing the periodic table is kind of silly. Well, maybe it was always silly.

 

Instead of learning what to remember, we need to learn how to think.

 

We need to learn how to ask really good questions, then how to evaluate the results we get for relevance, credibility, and importance.

 

You can practice law for 30 years and get pretty good at asking questions. (Not recommended.) Or you can try this.

Getting social: why work as a team sport is back

Getting social: why work as a team sport is back | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

There was an article in Harvard Business Review “Why Teams Don’t Work” and at that time, I was beginning to question the merits of teams so it struck me. The article called teams sacrosanct and so unchallenged and went on to describe the myths that surround team efforts being better - especially in corporate and at the most senior level.

Patrick Lencioni calls out the 5 Dysfunctions of a Team in what is now a legendary piece of writing and used by a lot of people I know in trying to rebuild teams.
