What skills do you need to be an eLearning Designer?

What skills do you need to be an eLearning Designer? | Other things | Scoop.it

For those looking to get into the world of eLearning, it’s easy to assume that the number one skill you need to possess is instructional design. And while instructional design does play a critical role in being a successful eLearning designer, there many more skills required to design eLearning content that is effective and engaging.

I’ve always believed that the process of creating an eLearning course is far more complicated than the process for producing other types of learning objects. When creating an eLearning course, the final result should be an interactive, visually engaging, digital experience that lets learners practice the skills they’ll be expected to perform on the job. And the process that you follow to take raw content from your subject matter experts and transform it into what I’ve just described requires a diverse set of skills.

If you’re interested in learning more about what skills you need to be an eLearning designer, check out my video below!

How to develop Soft Skills in the digital age

How to develop Soft Skills in the digital age | Other things | Scoop.it

With the rise of automation, organizations worldwide have made soft skills like communication, collaboration, and critical thinking a top priority. To work successfully alongside machines, recent grads and the current workforce must rely on what makes them uniquely human.

According to the ManpowerGroup’s 2016-2017 Talent Shortage Survey, “the most important skill you can nurture is learnability” to stay employable for the long-term. Ironically, the term “learnability” often refers to how easy a software product or interface is to use. However, in the case of employability, it means professionals must become lifelong learners to remain usable themselves.

There is a glaring need for soft skills in the workforce, but a significant gap remains between what skills recent grads think they have and what organizations believe they’re proficient in. Two recent surveys—one that polled students and one that gathered the employer perspective—revealed some startling discrepancies.

One college prepares for automation with free classes forever | Other things | Scoop.it

In the Future of Work, robots are supposed to wipe out tons of jobs, create a bunch of new ones or deliver some combination of both. Economists predict any of these scenarios will force the average worker to do practically the same thing throughout their careers: keep learning and learning and learning.

Some colleges in the United States are already preparing for this age of perpetual education, including the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. The Ann Arbor school launched a scholarship program that pays for graduates to take classes there forever, and the number of students is slowly growing.

The 42 courses, which normally cost $10,000 each for a week in the classroom, explore leadership, marketing, human resources and finance. (Students cover food, lodging and a $1,250 administrative fee.)

Why creativity is the most important skill

Why creativity is the most important skill | Other things | Scoop.it

Jobs that will thrive in the new economy are those that rely on human skills that machines can't emulate. The skills that future generations must prioritize and cultivate are empathy and creativity. Of the two, Creativity, especially in the STEM areas, will be the bigger driver of economic growth. Creativity isn't about arts and crafts, as is often thought. Creativity, as psychologists define it, is the ability to come up with ideas that are both original and useful. And the holy grail in computational creativity isn't the Turing test. It's the more complex ability of creating an artifact that can be deemed as creative as what a human would produce. It turns out that this is very difficult to accomplish.

The single biggest mistake universities make when going online

The single biggest mistake universities make when going online | Other things | Scoop.it

"The vast majority of online programs are simply online versions of an already established in-person program, or a replica of a program that can be found at dozens of other universities. I’ve seen little in these cookie-cutter courses that conveys an individual institution’s distinctive approach to education. Faculty become commodities. Most are virtually identical across institutions, differentiated only by the colors and logo. With this one-size-fits-all approach, unique pedagogy and branding virtually disappears. And, when this happens, what is an institution offering students that is distinctive or unique?"

Learning Innovation = Residential Education + Online Learning

Learning Innovation = Residential Education + Online Learning | Other things | Scoop.it

Last week at the Summit for Online Leadership and Administration + Roundtable I was asked to define learning innovation.

My answer came in the form of an equation:

Learning Innovation = Residential Education + Online Learning

Ask a group of any 4 academics to define learning innovation and you are bound to get at least 5 different answers. “Innovation" may be the least meaningful word in the contemporary postsecondary conversation. Well, maybe “disruption”, but “innovation” is right up there. This is why I want to make the concept of learning innovation concrete. And this is why when I think of learning innovation, my thoughts go to online education. I have 2 goals in my academic career:

Invisible learning: The (r)evolution outside of the classroom - Education Futures | Other things | Scoop.it
Learning becomes invisible when we empower each of us to learn our own way. Removing structures of control opens possibilities. The end outcomes or goals of an experience are neither dictated nor determined from the start, but instead emerge as learning develops. Such experiences include free play, self-organized learning communities, authentic problem-based learning, and experimentation to acquire new knowledge.

Microlearning - A small format with a big impact

Microlearning - A small format with a big impact | Other things | Scoop.it

With summer officially here, we’re all ready for holidays, road trips, and family vacations. How do you pass the time when you’re stuck in the passenger seat? My guess is that it’s not taking hours-long e-learning courses. But, if you found a short microlearning course that addressed a subject you’ve been stressing about at work, would you review that?

Microlearning has become a specialty of ours, and not because it’s simply the latest buzzword. It supports a variety of formats, helps reduce information overload, and is ideal for those moments when you’re stuck on a train, in a waiting room, or even in the passenger seat. In the last few months, we presented case studies on microlearning projects at ATD ICE, won an honorable mention for mobile (micro)learning from the International E-Learning Association, and continued to grow our portfolio with the development of microlearning games, branching scenarios, and interactive infographics.

One species - Many origins: Humans' fractured African roots

One species - Many origins: Humans' fractured African roots | Other things | Scoop.it

A scientific consortium led by Dr. Eleanor Scerri, British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oxford and researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, has found that human ancestors were scattered across Africa, and largely kept apart by a combination of diverse habitats and shifting environmental boundaries, such as forests and deserts. Millennia of separation gave rise to a staggering diversity of human forms, whose mixing ultimately shaped our species.

 

While it is widely accepted that our species originated in Africa, less attention has been paid to how we evolved within the continent. Many had assumed that early human ancestors originated as a single, relatively large ancestral population, and exchanged genes and technologies like stone tools in a more or less random fashion.

 

In a recent paper published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution, this view is challenged, not only by the usual study of bones (anthropology), stones (archaeology) and genes (population genomics), but also by new and more detailed reconstructions of Africa's climates and habitats over the last 300,000 years.

 

One species, many origins

"Stone tools and other artifacts -- usually referred to as material culture -- have remarkably clustered distributions in space and through time," said Dr. Eleanor Scerri, researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and the University of Oxford, and lead author of the study. "While there is a continental-wide trend towards more sophisticated material culture, this 'modernization' clearly doesn't originate in one region or occur at one time period."

 

Human fossils tell a similar story. "When we look at the morphology of human bones over the last 300,000 years, we see a complex mix of archaic and modern features in different places and at different times," said Prof. Chris Stringer, researcher at the London Natural History Museum and co-author on the study. "As with the material culture, we do see a continental-wide trend towards the modern human form, but different modern features appear in different places at different times, and some archaic features are present until remarkably recently."

6 Easy Steps To Make You More Resilient

6 Easy Steps To Make You More Resilient | Other things | Scoop.it
Change frightens us because it is a voyage into the unknown. Ironically, since the unknown forces us to adapt to new circumstances, it is also the place where we can develop new talents and strengths. If we are resilient, we can embark on a journey that moves us beyond self-limiting beliefs, boredom, and lack of confidence.

Change is the great dream of every heart because it moves us closer to our full potential. To refuse the challenge that comes with change can be a great act of self-neglect.

If you have mental toughness, you will do anything to break the cycle of behavior that disempowers you. To push beyond your limits takes a resilient mind. It requires you to move into your discomfort zone and cross a threshold that awakens a variety of emotions such as confusion, fear, excitement, sadness—and yes, dreams.

There should always be a healthy tension between the life we have settled for and the potential that still calls us.
