I’m always sensitive to the elearning developers who have to work with limited resources and usually by themselves. Because of this my goal is to provide practical tips and tricks that offer real value.

CM Elias's insight:

Learn something new every day - Memrise

Learn something new every day - Memrise | web learning | Scoop.it
Our recipe for effortless learning has 3 simple ingredients:

The first is Science. We're obsessed with using brain science to help you learn faster. This isn't a marketing ploy- we're really experts in this stuff. And from day one we've built Memrise to embody the very best knowledge about how your brain works, and so help you learn as quickly and effortlessly as possible.

We use 'mems' to help you form vivid, sensory memories. We test you continuously, always making sure to give your brain just the right workout. We remind you of what you've learned at scientifically optimized times so your memories are always growing stronger, and never forgotten.

The second is Fun. We want to make learning your favourite playtime activity. That's how it should be: we learn best when we're relaxed, curious and confident, and, after all, the world is a very interesting place.

So we've turned learning facts and language into a game where you grow a colourful garden of memory. You grow and water your memories in a garden of memory, you zoom up the leaderboards, and you learn alongside your mempals. It's like a guiltless video-game.

The third is Community. We believe learning should be as rich and varied as the world you're learning about. So with our community we're building a kind of multimedia wonderland of learning, where videos, audio, usage, mnemonics, etymologies and much more bring your learning to life.

We believe that every learner is partly a teacher, and we hope that once you get started, you'll soon be supplying little nuggets of wit and wisdom to help the rest of the community as they learn!

CM Elias's insight:

"The good thing is that right now, even with the struggling economy, elearning is a hot industry. This makes sense. For the organization looking to make cuts and still offer training, elearning is a viable option because it can reduce costs." - Tom Kuhlmann

3 Things to Consider When Building Interactive E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog

3 Things to Consider When Building Interactive E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog | web learning | Scoop.it

In a recent post, I built a drag and drop video player where you can select and drag a video title to load a video tutorial. I got lots of questions about how I built the player. Most of the questions were about how I built the drag-and-drop player. So I put together some tutorials and made the file available for download.

Tutorial 1: create the framework Tutorial 2: add layers and links Tutorial 3: create the drag and drop Tutorial 4: design tips Downloads: file and free font

One reason why the post generated so many questions is because of the novelty of dragging the choice button to load a tutorial video. This makes sense. In most cases this type of demo would have been a click and reveal interaction; but the drag and drop choice added some novel interactivity.

However, was using a drag and drop button the best way to do it? That’s what we’ll explore today.

7 Free Handwritten Fonts for Your E-Learning Courses » The Rapid eLearning Blog | web learning | Scoop.it

I like to use handwritten fonts in my courses. They work well when I add them to speech bubbles, callouts, or captions. I also like the contrast a handwritten font adds to a more formal design. It comes across as a personal note—something I need to focus on.

Livemocha - Tips to Learn Any Language & Speak Like a Native! | web learning | Scoop.it
Learning a new language can be rewarding for both personal and professional reasons; it can help when travelling, and opens the door to new business and employment opportunities. Studies have even shown that tackling a new language can increase brain power and is one way in which people can keep their minds sharp. This can help in the prevention of mental diseases like Alzheimer’s. With all of the advantages associated in learning a new language, many people have begun to look for ways to ease the learning process without compromising the quality of the end result.

It makes sense, no one wants to violate any laws or steal someone’s intellectual property. So let’s take a look at some options.»
