Begin at the end: Why you should write your emails backwards | Web Learning | Scoop.it

Most inexperienced or ineffective business writers start at the beginning and go on and on and on. 

 So, try and fix this by making the last request in your usual lengthy emails the first line of your message instead. Then, add two or three simple sentences to support your request. If you do this, you are making it easier for me to respond.

How do you pick up a malicious online virus, the kind of malware that snoops on your data and taps your bank account? Often, it's through simple things you do each day without thinking twice. James Lyne reminds us that it's not only the NSA that's watching us, but ever-more-sophisticated cybercriminals, who exploit both weak code and trusting human nature.

If You're Designing eLearning for Adults Take Advantage of These 4 Tactics | Web Learning | Scoop.it
Understanding how adults learn, is the first step to crafting an eLearning material adults will actually want to start and finish.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 1, 6:25 PM

If you are designing an eLearning course for adults are there aspects to consider that are important to the adult learner? This post from SH!FT would say yes. To create courses for adult learners, we must understand how adults learn, their traits and their learning styles.

What is important?

* Hook them Early (and Often)

* Make Use of Their Experiences

* Persuade Adult Learners of the Desirability of Learning Something

* Give Adult Learners the Freedom to Choose

Learn four ways to help hook the adult learner. Find four suggestions on ways to give adult learners more freedom to choose. Click through to the post to learn more.

Avidity Medical Design's curator insight, August 2, 7:13 AM

Very insightful article. I especially agree with point #2 and point #4. Point #2 indicates that learners can use past experiences to tap into new ideas. Point #4 indicates that adult learners would like to have the ability to take a more active role in defining their own learning experience. I see an interrelationship between both points because they each describe elements of self-directed learning. The learner is using what they already know to tap into new knowledge (point #2), and then, given the opportunity, they are choosing how, when, and where they acquire the new knowledge (point #4), with consideration given to the knowledge that they have already obtained (point #2). Excellent article, keep up the good work!
