COVID-19 changes the learning landscape at work
The impact of COVID-19 is not over. As much of the world emerges from lock down and begins to return to work, we will find it has changed. And not just physically. Yes, we may have to be distant at work, and not socialize in the same ways in the evening, but the greatest change will not be physical. It will be mental.
The world has been engaged in a vast, drawn out, communal experience, with over 3 billion people …
3 ways to achieve Behavioural Change via eLearning
Behavioural change is the biggest indicator of successful learning and is the hardest to achieve. In the case of soft skills training, compliance training, even sales training, a behavioural change should be the expected output and not just completion of the training.
Two things have always led corporate eLearning strategies:
- Academic Education Systems.
Corporate learning, whether synchronous or asynchronous, follows the same academic systems as schools and universities; i.e. course-based learning with certification deeming learners as qualified.
- Learning Technologies.
Transforming Learning into Data Driven Experiences
This is the second in the series of our insights from Learning Live this year, following on from Mike Byrne’s initial introduction to the series last week.
More than ever most experiences people are engaged with on a daily basis are shaped by a digital layer. Whether it is to book a service, to communicate with friends, listen to music, read a book, watch a movie, or indeed buy or sell goods and services. For businesses and L&D departments to …
Digital transformation top of the list for Heads of HR
Nothing quite spells the end of summer like the obligatory first day of school photos, followed by the rush to get into London to attend the annual and now increasingly “must attend” event, LearningLive. The conference has grown from strength to strength in recent years and the ability to talk to senior decision makers from L&D and Human Capital Management is particularly invaluable.
José Manuel Martín explains that it’s time to change the way we find and use our elearning content in our organisation.
For 20 years we have been following a model borrowed from our experience of education and learning, mimicking the philosophy of the university or school. That is, we’ve been offering our learners a catalogue of courses where they must register and navigate through the selected course and complete it.
But times have changed and we no longer consume content …
I am going to start by asking the readers a question, based on the assumption that most of the audience will be involved in L&D and more specifically Learning Technologies in some way or another:
What happened the last time you were at a social event and you were asked the very British question, “So what do you do?” Invariably when I say eLearning, the response falls into one of two categories:
- “Oh, what is that then?”
- “Oh… yes, I
On March 22, HR Evolution took place at Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City, an event that brings together L&D professionals in Mexico, where attendees have the opportunity to learn about and analyze the latest news and trends in elearning. Among them, Carlos Ezquerro, CEO of Netex, presented his vision of how microlearning can be the tool that facilitates the dissemination of knowledge in the company, based on speed and accessibility.
Video content, lasting no longer than five minutes, in which
It’s a month today after the i-love learning 2017 event in Madrid. Following the “hangover” of this intense day focused on trends and future of e-learning, Ed Monk and Will Storr, two of the keynote speakers, offer a brief reflections on the themes of their respective conferences.
Will Storr: storytelling is learning
It was my great honour and pleasure to be invited by Netex to speak to the fifth annual I Love Learning event in Madrid, 2017. My presentation focused …
For years the providers of e-learning solutions in Italy, excluding certain exceptional situations, have faced interlocutors who were equally divided into two categories. Firstly, one that had to solve a specific mandatory training need where there was little interest in “how”, but rather that this requirement was ticked off the list. Secondly, one that had a better idea and conscious that staff training is a complex process which has to include, in addition to good contents, a series of activities …
Much ado about learning
Will Storr’s presentation at i-love learning London was about story building, a less than usual theme for a learning conference but unquestionably appropriate for one at a venue adjacent to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
Storr’s assertion, early in his presentation, that the human mind is a story processor, not a logic processor (originally an observation by Jonathan Haidt), quickly helped us realise that this was indeed a truly relevant subject for anyone involved in the battle to engage …
