Most online courses are a solitary experience for learners. Students lack the ability to strike up an impromptu conversation about last week’s homework or compare notes with whoever’s sitting next to them in class. The absence of social interaction could be one reason behind high dropout rates in

D o your remote employees need a virtual pep talk? Are they lacking the motivation they need to achieve their learning objectives? In this article, I'll share 8 tips to empower and inspire your geographically dispersed corporate learners.
"The reason that many teachers strive for a more virtual experience instead of the traditional talking points is that the interaction makes the lesson more memorable to the students. Concepts and ideas that seem too complicated under time-honored instruction methods are easier to grasp when the students can experience the lessons. This does not mean that you need a VR machine to create a virtual experience either. There are a number of tools that can help you establish a virtual environment that makes lessons more entertaining while making the concepts easier to understand."
Responsive: It’s been a tech buzzword for a few years now, especially in reference to web design. But what does it mean? And, more importantly, what does it mean for your e-learning?

So the next time you walk into a training room and see a number of older teachers there, don’t groan with disappointment, but welcome the opportunity to test your skills and understanding with the most critical audience. If you can send them away motivated to use technology then you know you are on the right track.
In a classroom scenario, students are physically present in their classes, but not paying attention to all the lessons being taught. This lack of attention is evident in the results of the review assignments, quizzes, or exams. This leads to a sense of failure for the instructors.
The same is true for e-learning; when learners do not pay attention, it reflects on the assessments and overall lack of improvement in the performance of the learner. An article ‘Why can’t students just pay attention’, throws light on the importance of increasing the attention span of the learners. Though the solutions are aligned more towards traditional learning, they can all be suitably tweaked for e-learning and make the technology-aided medium more effective.
With the world’s information at the disposal of a mobile phone or tablet, eLearning and on-the-job learning materials often need to be accessible in a matter of seconds. In this article, PulseLearning outlines 6 advantages of mobile learning for learners and your business.
It goes without saying that we do not communicate in the same manner as we did 10 years ago, not to mention that the rapid growth in this sphere is hard to tackle if we go in the past decade of the last century, when the mobile phones were hardly used. The benefits of our age bring the virtual reality and the gadgets that we can use to have an insight into the possibilities the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment can bring us. Since we can interact in a seemingly real or physical way using special electronic equipment, helmet with a screen inside, or gloves fitted with sensors, we can say that we have made a step towards the illusionary world in three dimensions. But what about using virtual reality in education?
Over the past few months, I’ve written a series of posts over on the Flipped Learning Network web site that offer a wealth of different tools and techniques that can be used to create digital learning content for flipped or blended
Instructional strategies for design, management, and assessment of standards-focused, project-based learning (PBL) in the flipped classroom. Use of multimedia and online resources to support collaboration and increase learner motivation and engagement.
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.
