10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

What is it that help students pay attention?

* Problem solving

* Comparisons

* Visuals

* Questions

* Emotions

* Stories

* Contrast

* Controversy

* Brevity

* Lists

Mark Treadwell's curator insight, July 27, 3:47 PM

A great list of elements that contribute to a good prompt. Prompts initiate curiosity via the stimulation of the release of hormones that trigger astrocytic cells (75% of all brain cells) in the brain to trigger neurons to map and automate complex neural patterns we call ideas and concepts. MT

Use E-Learning to Teach Improved It Skills

Use E-Learning to Teach Improved It Skills | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Addressing the pervasive skills shortage is not an easy task but a local company believes part of the solution lies in improved IT training.

"There is a direct need for 21st century job skills in developing countries like Namibia. Unfortunately, the solutions that currently exist are difficult to implement, require resources that are currently unavailable in urban areas and are prohibitively expensive. Quality education is an experience for all but beyond the reach of the vast majority of workers. It is vital for governments to overcome the barriers to large scale IT and Professional Development training efforts. Since it is not possible to send out thousands of expert instructors in these fields to every single developing nation, e-learning is a very practical alternative for the cost-efficient delivery of high quality workforce skills" said Moira Cloete of eSkill Learning.
