Social Learning does NOT mean Social Media

E-learning, Instructional Designers, Learners, LMS

Even though both social learning and social media witness a lot of human interaction, social media plays a very small role in social learning in the workplace. Instructional designers need, besides real face-to-face collaboration during the learning process, a digital watercooler around which employees gather, have high quality conversations and discuss about possible solutions to business problems.

Micro learning: From small dots to the big picture

E-learning, Instructional Designers, LMS

Micro learning has a lot in common with the Impressionist art movement. Each micro learning activity is like a dot, a line, or a messy paintbrush stroke of color in such a painting.

Too busy for learning

Too busy for learning? That’s just an excuse!

Instructional Designers, Learners

The paradigm surrounding workplace training is that while everyone agrees upon its importance, almost nobody puts it on their high priority list. Managers know that their company’s competitiveness is directly related to employees’ skills development, yet L&D departments are often the first to be hit by budget cuts. Employees are perfectly aware that developing their skills directly contributes to their professional development, yet they always have something urgent to do and simply don’t show up at training sessions.

How can instructional designers destroy this “too busy” attitude towards learning?

Interactive videos in e-learning perform the best when it comes to emotional engagement, time spent on page, attention grabbing or later recall of the learned information.
