John Michel's curator insight, October 22, 2013 5:38 AM

If you’re tired, your brain is not as good at filtering out distractions and focusing on a particular task. It’s also a lot less efficient at remembering connections between ideas or concepts. These are both good things when it comes to creative work, since this kind of work requires us to make new connections, be open to new ideas, and think in new ways. So a tired, fuzzy brain is of much more use to us when working on creative projects.

e-Learning has revolutionized the educational sector, and has changed the way we look at knowledge and skill acquisition altogether. Thanks to modern educational technology, e-Learning tools and techniques just keep getting bigger and better. Today, they are providing learners with a more impressive, and more effective, educational experience. 

Breland Green's curator insight, March 6, 2014 11:13 AM

This article talks about eLearning, or "online classes" that college students take in order to save some time in classes. The article says that many people leave their jobs simply because of the fact that they haven't received well enough education before the job, and eLearning is trying to help fix that.

 

The article speaks of only people who are willing to learn and willing to spend time on an online class in order to be successful.
