Below is a selection of blogs and articles, outlining some of our key thoughts around digital learning.
We have a range of different contributors, both from our team here and from trusted external partners.
Wherever you work and whatever your role there are common experiences that we all share.
This month our guest blogger Dionne Hamilton Smith gives her thoughts on technology and the future of learning.
Not so long ago, it was only very large companies that used elearning or any other technologies to support learning. It was hardly surprising given that the costs involved could easily run into the tens, or even hundreds, of thousands of pounds.
I previously wrote a post here about gamification and concluded (with some small caveats) that it is a useful technique which can work. In this post I’d like to highlight some of the key reasons why it works.
In my recent post here on skills analysis I made two bold statements: 1. That whether it is through competency frameworks or job descriptions, there is no excuse for an organisation not knowing what someone is expected to do in their role.
I’ve previously written here about the benefits of learning journeys and about the importance of induction. In this post I’d like to look at...
Over the years we’ve seen many changes in L&D. Less classroom delivery, the rise (and fall?) of elearning and the ubiquitous access to content through mobile devices.
Many organisations implement an LMS, fill it with great learning content, offer really useful resources and provide modern tools to connect learners with each other - only to be disappointed when learners don’t use it...
Gamification is definitely one of the big topics for 2015, and not just in learning - marketing and customer engagement are two areas in which gamification is expected to have an increasing role.
Recently, I was talking with a client who was keen to show me why she was so frustrated with her organisation’s LMS.
Big Data has been much talked about over the past few years and recently people have begun to take an interest in how it can be used to improve learning.
Over the past couple of years I’ve made some fairly in depth suggestions for how and why you might use an LMS.
I don’t think it’s overstating things to say that the biggest change to the way we learn, communicate and do business in the 21st Century is the widespread adoption of mobile devices..
“The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave, is not training them and having them stay.” - Henry Ford.
The lines between working and learning have always been blurred, but the adoption of powerful mobile devices and the mostly ubiquitous availability of internet access has radically changed the way we work, learn and play.
Gather together any group of learning professionals, turn the subject to compliance training and you can almost guarantee a room full of moans, groans and pained faces. Whether we like it or not, compliance training is something that all of us are likely to work with to some degree.
In the blog posts that I have written here I have frequently asked the question "how can an LMS help us?". In this case I'm going to get the question out of the way right up front; so, how can an LMS help us with induction and onboarding?
In my previous post I talked about the choice between buying and building an LMS, and this time I'd like to consider a slightly simpler but equally important decision – when should you consider switching your LMS
In the early days of e-learning adoption it was quite common to have to make a decision between buying an LMS and building one yourself. Just ten years ago the LMS market was a much smaller place...
It’s the time of year when witches, ghosts, vampires and zombies are out to terrify the world. However one thing that is most terrifying of all, is the resemblance between a groaning...
In previous posts I’ve talked about the importance to both students and managers of having access to good data in order to monitor and manage progress...
Dashboards and reports are both great methods for keeping on track of development. Managers can drill through to see the overall progress of departments...
Companies with a strong community of workers understand that starting a new job can be both exciting and daunting. Introducing new employees to the business...
I’m pretty sure that in each of the last ten years that I’ve worked in the elearning industry, at least one person has told me that it would be the year that mobile learning would take off.
An LMS is a useful and important training administration solution for L&D departments within medium to large organisations. Companies
Organisations are tasked with training challenges which require stretching a small budget to administrate, manage, schedule and deliver training...
