Trainers: How elearning can stop you from losing business

Trainers: How elearning can stop you from losing business
News from bdaily:

Can I post an article about anything on Bdaily?

No – we only publish articles that are relevant to a business audience. We have 9 sectors which are often a good point of reference if you are unsure. Because we are a business platform, we would not publish articles that are not business relevant. For example we would remove content about music, wildlife, schools etc. unless they had a clear business angle.

I’m confused – what is the difference between News, Advice and Opinion pieces?

News pieces are timely updates on events. Usually the reader is given new or updated information. News is time sensitive.

An Advice piece is something that explains a process, gives hints, tips or pointers on how to do something or improve something. Advice is not usually time sensitive and written to follow a more general theme.

Opinion pieces are again written to fit in with a general theme but giving an experts opinion on something that is of note to the business audience.

Can I add links to my article?

Yes but this is at a cost. If you are publishing your article and wish to add a no-follow link, this will cost ?70+VAT. If you wish to publish a free article then you can not add a link. Adding follow links is strictly prohibited and can lead to a member being banned from uploading content.

Development focus: Why e-Learning is far from boring

Development focus: Why e-Learning is far from boring
News from Money Marketing:

Categories:Advisers,Technology

By 2020, eLearning will make up 95 per cent of the learning market – that is the prediction of Craig Weiss, one of the world’s leading authorities on online learning.

His assertion is that face-to-face learning methodology has been the same for 400 years but in 20 years eLearning has transformed the learning space.

Yet if asked for their perception of eLearning, most advisers would probably have a similar response. The words “boring” “dull” and a “necessary evil” would likely feature heavily and with some justification, given firms’ traditional predominantly regulation-driven relationship with eLearning.

[Via Satellite 10-14-2014] SES has revealed its Live Interactive Classroom application for use in an eLearning project called KUganda. The platform will connect the Catholic University Eichst?tt – Ingolstadt in Germany to the Permanent Center for Education in Kampala, Uganda using SES Broadband Services’ solution.

The Live Interactive Platform brings students and teachers together using audio and video communications coupled with presentation slides. Eichst?tt Professor Gaby Gien will deliver a seminar from Germany to students and teachers in Uganda.

“Part of the challenge is to provide teachers in Africa with computers and resources. Without Internet connectivity, teachers and children are deprived of the use of educational content online.

E-learning fails to gain foothold in Vietnam
News from Tuoitrenews:

Many e-learning websites, even free-of-charge platforms, have told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the number of Vietnamese people using their services for studying is small and unstable.

Zuni.vn, one such site, has seen a strong decrease in its number of users over the last few months.

The Vietnamese site said it had over one million visitors in April, May and June, but this figure decreased to around 700,000 per month for July and August.

In the meantime, the number of people registering to learn at the site in May and June was 20,957 and 40,278, respectively, and then fell sharply to 9,624 and 5,399 in July and August.

“This may be because the period from April to June was when students studied for the high school graduation and university entrance exams, so the number of learners sharply increased,” a Zuni.vn representative shared. “Then it decreased after the exams.”

According to several other online educational websites, Vietnamese users currently access their services only when they need to search for information, and have no long-term study plan.

Only Khan Academy, a world famous online educational website which introduces lessons in the form of videos and does not require fixed learning schedules, expressed optimism over the situation.

A Pioneer in eLearning at UC Pilots Echo360 System

One tech-savvy professor from the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences uses a new pilot system to capture in-class lectures for online courses.

Date: 10/6/2014 2:00:00 PM
By: Alexis O’Brien
Phone: (513) 558-7584

UC geology professor Warren Huff understands students. It’s an attribute that’s easily evidenced in the online geology course he opened eight years ago with just their needs, plus his interests, in mind.

“A lot of them have jobs, family responsibilities or they don’t want to get up early and come to class,” Huff said. “I understand that and started online geology classes out of my own interest in them, too. The technology was available.”

Huff was one of the first McMicken College of Arts and Sciences professors to offer an online course and has worked with a couple of different lecture capture systems that have enabled him to conduct online courses effectively: Camtasia and Podcast Producer. Now that Echo360 has appeared on campus, he’s piloting that system, too.

Now, students of government high schools here can learn spoken English, courtesy an online course.

Launched recently by Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, the course uses daily life scenarios, regional and cultural examples, situation-based learning and an innovative teaching method of grammatical concepts. Local Administration Minister N.G. Pannirselvam was also present at the launch.

“Our academy wants to improve the student’s spoken English skills by giving them a concrete chance to learn and practice English the way it is spoken in everyday life and in the professional environment,” said Terry Leger, Founder and CEO of Azimuth, the company which has developed the course material. The e-course retail pack is available in CD and DVD format, with three levels.

“Today, we have taken an initiative to distribute free copies to the Pondicherry Government High Schools. I hope, we will be able to expand this initiative in future by gathering donations to finance more free copies for the schools that need help,” Mr. Leger added.

Embrace the Power of Mobile E-Learning Now

You might see the trends and think it seems easy enough to tell users to start training from a smartphone or tablet. It would be great if it were that simple. However, there are a lot of challenges to overcome when supporting mobile learning.

As the popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs increases and the Millennial generation continues flooding the workforce, the need for mobile-friendly training is at an all-time high. In fact, in an article from Business 2 Community, Tom Pick noted in 2013 that there were more than “143 million smartphones in use in the U.S., and 71 million tablets.” In another recent article, “The Top Trends in Mobile Learning for 2014″ from elearningindustry.com, it was reported that 66% of surveyed office workers expect to be allowed to use any device at work.

Furthermore, as reported by Chris Komisarjevsky of the Huffington Post, “Millennials are fast becoming the largest group of employees at companies large and small.” Komisarjevsky reminds us, “these adults have grown up in the digital era…. It defines them and they, in turn, have significant influence on those around them, whether from home, the workplace or the treadmill.” It is undeniable employees exp…………… continues on Occupational Health and Safety

E-learning in an Ebola environment: A practical way forward

E-learning in an Ebola environment: A practical way forward
News from Sierra Express Media:

As I resume classes on Monday here in the UK, I am so unhappy and broken in spirit especially when I consider the fact that thousands of students in my country are presently not attending school and formal lectures because of the outbreak of the Ebola virus and its attendant consequences. The entire educational system in Sierra Leone is currently on hold for over 3 months now. For a nation that is just coming from a 10 years devastating civil war and one whose literacy population is just a little over 30%, this social injunction will surely have debilitating consequences for the growth and economic transformation of the country.

But as I sat and ponder over this demagogue, something interesting dropped on my mind and I feel a deep sense of responsibility to share it to all and sundry.
