3 Reasons Why Linear E-Learning May Be the Best Solution » The Rapid eLearning Blog

3 Reasons Why Linear E-Learning May Be the Best Solution » The Rapid eLearning Blog | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
Learning is Bigger than E-Learning

A couple of the benefits of elearning are consistent delivery of content and compression of time to deliver it. That means that even if the course isn’t highly interactive it can still offer some value to the organization.

For example, there are often training initiatives that require some face-to-face sessions and peer interaction. That’s something that elearning can’t always do effectively. But they can help make the face-to-face time more efficient.

Compressed time to deliver content. Classroom sessions often have delayed start times and they can be side-tracked by other discussions. It’s often possible to compress a one hour classroom session to a 20 minute online module because there’s better control of the content and distractions.  Learner flexibility. People are able to take the modules at their convenience and speed. So it doesn’t disrupt their work schedule or production as much. Consistent delivery of information. Each facilitator is different and each class has its own pacing. Many times we’ll spend 80% of the time going through 50% of the content. And then we’ll notice the time’s almost up and quickly skim through the last 50%. An elearning course can assure that at least the delivery and access to the content for each learner is consistent.

In that sense, linear elearning is an appropriate solution when blended with classroom activities. By compressing the time and ensuring consistent delivery of the content, it frees up time for more meaningful conversation and learning activities in the classroom.

Moodle TextCloud

Moodle TextCloud | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
Moodle text cloud block basically performs the following operations:
On each cron cycle, the block search for new resources included in the course. If new resources are found, it process the resource for indexing
The indexing process distinguishes between different resources types. MS Office and Open Document Format documents are converted into PDF format by the Unoconv application [2]. PDF files are converted into PlainText Files. HTML files are converted into Text files via a specific function that removes HTML tags and other formatting text.
Text of PlainText files is extracted, and processed for text analysis. This involves further steps: a) Language detection; b) stop-words filtering; c) stemming algorithm application.
Last step consists on calculating frequencies and other statistics to determine the weight of every tag.
Moodle text cloud block is able to work with different languages. The current version comes with 11 analysis languages (danish, dutch, english, french, german, italian, norwegian, polish, portuguese, spanish and swedish), 4 of these (english, german, italian and spanish) contains also the stemming engine. New language analyser and stemming engine can be added very easily.

Entrepreneurship: Risks You Need to Consider (Infographic)

Entrepreneurship: Risks You Need to Consider (Infographic) | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

While entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes, one commonality binds them all together: the willingness to take a risk.

 

This Dun & Bradstreet Credibility infographic encapsulates many of the struggles and fears that small business owners have to overcome, including the ultimate risk of closure or bankruptcy. If you hear that Mark Zuckerberg is 28 and think that your opportunity to strike out has passed you by already, think again: Most company founders are middle aged, according to the infographic.

 

Being an entrepreneur is less about fitting into the Silicon Valley mold than it is about having courage, perseverance and ambition.

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"...Online delivery, though, provides the opportunity to take an entirely new approach. Instead of 24 lectures, great online lecturers prepare around 400 sessions, eight to 10 minutes long, ending with a short quiz. Students’ answers to those quizzes determine which part of the course they progress to next.

So, students doing the same unit will start at the same point, but their journey through the material will be entirely different; some will need to interact with every one of the presentations while others may need to interact with far fewer of them. And students may interact with the same number of presentations, but in an entirely different sequence.

In this mode, students' experience is completely personal and adaptive to the way in which they are learning..."

Open-access science: be careful what you wish for

Open-access science: be careful what you wish for | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

In recent weeks we’ve seen a renewed push to introduce open access to science research publications.

 

The concept is simple: research that is paid for by public funds should be made freely available, not only to other scientists, but also to the people who actually paid for the research: the tax-paying public.

 

While open access is certainly a noble and worthwhile endeavour, there are problems with the proposed system that few people are aware of and that could actually backfire for the scientific community.

Need to Combine E-Learning with Mentoring? Here’s a Simple Solution. » The Rapid eLearning Blog | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
To sum it all up: Determine what content can be taught electronically and what needs to be done in the real world. Break the content into smaller modules with each module combining elearning and real world learning. Use a learning journal as a means to bridge the two parts of the module and facilitate the conversation between learner and peer coach. Get the peer coach involved in the training design. Use the peer coaching experience as a way to develop that person’s management skills. Avoid bureaucracy.

Make it Relevant

The first step to interactivity is relevance. The worst thing is having to take an elearning course that is completely meaningless. I’ve never had a job where I’m in a position to be bribed. Yet in many of the organizations I’ve worked, I’ve had to take courses on how not to receive bribes. What a waste of time!
