Women In eLearning Meetup In Madrid

Accustomed to work in a world where new technologies are taken over by men, my attention got widely attracted by the title of a meetup I received in my email a few weeks ago: "Women In eLearning Meetup in Madrid". I signed up right away, ready to meet other professionals in my city.

Virtual Worlds - Simulation or Reality?

It’s always interesting to note someone’s response when they hear you’re using a virtual world as a learning environment. Simulation is generally the word used in the response…‘Ah, so you’re simulating the real thing’. Well yes, I suppose we are. In a way. But what I’ve thought more and more about since implementing learning within a virtual world environment is that simulation and reality can become very blurred in the virtual world. I’m no longer certain it can be simply described as simulated learning – the experience is very real. So is it simulated? Or is it reality? And does it matter?

Best Practices in Learning and Development

Studies in the US have shown that organizations that adopt eLearning experience cost savings of around 21% and also save learners’ study time. At the same time there is increased effectiveness and productivity – they see a 32% increase in the time between training and that training being implemented on-the-job. Unfortunately however between 50% and 80% of all L&D activities are what’s referred to as “scrap learning” because the lessons from that learning are never actually applied on-the-job. That amounts to a substantial waste of Learning and Development budget! So how does an organization provide L&D but do it well?

This house believes MOOCs are doomed

This is the provocative motion of this year’s ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN debate. The much-imitated event is a perennial favorite at the Conference; year after year, its mixture of incisive analysis, provocative statesmanship, audience participation and good plain fun make it one of the biggest crowd-pullers. by Alasdair MacKinnon
