3 Brain science insights about adult learning

Learners

Even though every adult is different and the brains act differently during the learning process, there are some things that all adult learners have in common. If you’re in any sort involved in designing courses for adults, you might want to tune in, as I’m about to go into three brain science insights that are true to all learners.

Benefits of mobile learning

4 Benefits of mobile learning for your company

E-learning, Managers

Now there are various effective tools of training that companies can use, and these tools come in all sizes. The sizes are different, but the shape is basically the same: phones, phablets and tablets. More and more companies turn to using these devices to train their employees and it works, especially if it’s used with a modern business LMS.

How big data changes the training scenery

E-learning, Instructional Designers, Managers

In the e-learning arena, big data means the data produced by learners interacting with the learning content during an e-learning course or training module: their learning progress, the time spent on each lesson, the time spent on a particular part of the lesson (a video, for example), their assessment results, their social sharing, their interactions with other learners or with instructors, and so on, and so forth. All these data affects companies’ ability to deliver success in learning and development, learner engagement and ultimately, business performance.

Addressing the needs of visual learners in training

E-learning, Instructional Designers

It’s better to have brains than good looks, but why settle for half of what you can get? An LMS needs to do all the heavy work when it comes to creating courses, assignments, and tests, as well as gathering data for each learner and provide thorough reports. But it also needs to offer a great user experience for administrators, instructors, and learners alike. Visual learners prefer a variety of learning materials, eye-catching learning materials over text-only ones, and they simply love videos.

experiential learning

Why experiential learning is so important in the workplace

E-learning, Instructional Designers

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. Simply said, it’s learning by doing. We all learn better when we are directly involved in a learning experience rather than when we are simply recipients of ready-made content, like formal training courses. Experiential learning comes with interactivity and participation, and is much more effective than traditional learning approaches. But why is experiential learning so important in the workplace?

Games in training

Games in training are no game play

E-learning, Instructional Designers, Managers

The use of games for business training purposes is still a technique that is met with a certain dose of skepticism. The fun and entertaining nature of games goes against the serious attitude of business. Add to this a faulty implementation of gaming principles and mechanics in a training program, and no wonder there are plenty of managers who consider gamification a joke. But gamification can lead to impressive outcomes, and the main reason for this is that it drives engagement.

Velfies and bite-sized learning

Velfies and bite-sized learning: a recipe for training success

E-learning, Instructional Designers

Velfies and bite-sized learning: bite-sized learning is cheap, offers just-in-time support, can be accessed on mobile devices, and keeps employees engaged during the learning process; videos are the most engaging type of learning materials. What happens when you combine bite-sized learning, videos, and the familiarity and comfort of selfies? The answer is training velfies.
