bioTE Medical Saves Training & Travel Time with Express Yourself eLearning
News from Sacramento Bee:

/PRNewswire-iReach/ — Express Yourself eLearning, an online learning platform for authors, speakers, coaches and trainers located in Dallas TX, announces the launch of bioTE Medical’s training eCourses for Pellet Therapy product.

Express Yourself eLearning offers video services and an eLearning platform that provides company trainers, such as those with bioTE, the ability to provide training online. “In the case of bioTE Medical,” states Jayne Rios, company founder and CEO, “the pellet therapy product is so new, the company found themselves doubling their training efforts, which resulted in hours of retraining and excessive travel expenses. Now, medical and pharmaceutical reps can review the sessions on line until they feel comfortable approaching a physician.”

Express Yourself eLearning videoed 20 hours of training sessions and produced 12 courses with seven classes each for the bioTE Medical training team. These classes are online and are available for not only the representatives who will be selling the product, but also the doctors who will be prescribing the hormone therapy.

DfE will not ‘dictate’ specifics on e-learning ICT resources, says Gove
News from Computing:

In Computing’s exclusive interview with Michael Gove, the education secretary has stated that while the Department for Education (DfE) is “keen that schools embrace the opportunities” presented by advances in so-called ‘e-learning’ resources, “it is not for me or the government to wade in to dictate how schools and teachers should use them within the curriculum”.

Gove championed resources available from education institutes abroad, such as “MIT’s OpenCourseWare and other exciting projects, like Khan Academy and Open University’s OpenLearn”, which he said “can add significant value to education”.

“I saw first-hand in Singapore, for example, how brilliant lessons can be delivered through a mixture of online and teacher-led instruction,” added Gove.

But the education secretary added that it is also important “for teachers to have the skills to use technology well, and for schools to learn from innovators in this field”.

“That is why the Department for Education is supporting the National Teaching Schools’ new technology group to identify and share good practice,” said Gove.

“These are outstanding schools with a role in supporting the professional development of leaders and teachers elsewhere.”

Students, teacher highlight ‘elearning’ at conference

Students, teacher highlight ‘elearning’ at conference
News from Yuma Sun:

Seven middle school students and their teacher helped “put Yuma on the map” when they recently traveled to be presenters at the 2013 ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference in San Antonio, Texas.

With more than 20,000 people present at the event, the eighth-grade students from Castle Dome Middle School and their Advanced Language Arts teacher Cary Fields shared with conference-goers how technology had positively impacted their classroom productivity.

Fields said that during the course of the five-day event, students had the opportunity to show-off their digital portfolios to those in attendance and explain how they utilize technology in line with the Common Core standards for English language arts. She added that they also were able to talk with people about their successes and how they found solutions to problems they encountered along the way.

Regardless of whether or not they were able to attend the conference, attendees were able to view all 25 of Fields’ students’ digital portfolios. Their portfolios includes things like their own web page through Weebly.com, which allows students to share blog posts and podcasts and display their assignments with people all around the world.

Fields said that while attending ISTE, she learned that making connections with colleagues is an essential part of staying current in the e…………… continues on Yuma Sun

eLearning End of Life: Move Courses to eCampus by August 2014

eLearning End of Life: Move Courses to eCampus by August 2014
News from Texas A&M University:

Published: July 18, 2013

The new eCampus learning management system, powered by Blackboard Learn, is now available for all instructors. The previous eLearning system, Blackboard Vista, has reached end of life with vendor support stopping in December 2013. We expect more issues in supporting eLearning going forward. Consequently, we ask that all eLearning courses be moved to the new eCampus system before the Fall semester in calendar year 2014.

Moving to the new system during the next academic year will become increasingly important. eLearning system bugs will no longer receive updates, security and Java pop-up messages will increase, and students will have issues viewing or submitting assignments if they use newer versions of Internet browsers.

eCampus provides choices in how you teach your courses, from simply uploading a syllabus and posting grades securely to completely delivering an online curriculum and tracking student progress. New features that can enhance teaching and learning include:

  • Updated Grade Center for working either online or offline,
  • Mobile app allowing students to receive course updates on their mobile devices, and
  • Improved interface for teaching more efficiently.

Training is not required. However, Instructional Techno…………… continues on Texas A&M University

E-learning’s unlucky 13

E-learning’s unlucky 13
News from Business Reporter:

A while ago, over 100 learning professionals were asked what one thing most annoys them about online learning materials. Their responses were both varied and – significantly – many, as Bob Little finds.

Of these, the 13 most annoying traits of online learning materials were:

Patronising the learner

• Having a section called ‘How to use this e-learning module’.

• Spelling out the materials’ objective, such as, ‘By the end of this module you will have learnt…’

• Text-heavy sections labelled ‘Background’ or ‘History’, and the related issue of getting learners to read a company policy in the guise of it being ‘e-learning’.

Poor screen design

• Pages cluttered confusingly with text and Clip Art graphics.

• Using text to explain what each button does, rather than letting the users explore and find out for themselves.

• The use of fading text and pictures – in and out, in and out – which just frustrates the user.

• Inane, irrelevant and ineffective interactions, including fatuous multiple-choice questions.

Poor program design

• The lack of a ‘page-turning’ running theme to maintain user interest.

• Having a robotic voice re…………… continues on Business Reporter
