Editor’s note: Thanks to Andrew Jacobs for sharing what looks like a very useful research database of studies into online and blended learning outcomes.
Editor’s note: This third instalment of the GoodPractice research trilogy provides insights into what managers consider to be the most useful learning technologies. This is about perceptions and as such shows the challenges L&D and vendors have in convincing managers to use different and newer technologies.
Editor’s note: This is a really good post on user experience, using the buying and onboarding process of purchasing a new iPhone to show what good user experience looks like.
Editor’s note: Professor Alex Edmans, professor of finance at the London School of Economics, gave this talk at this week’s CIPD conference. He provides evidence to show that treating people well does pay for organisations.
Editor’s note: Dr Atul Gawande, author of the Checklist Manifesto, describes his work. His thinking has been raised at recent learning conferences and is useful for any organisation looking to develop a resources not courses approach to learning.
Editor’s note: A great deck and lots of resources on curation in learning from David Kelly, a learning professional who has been curating, and advocating for curation, for a number of years.
This might seem like an overly simplistic review of what was an interesting two-day conference…
Editor’s note: Having recently delivered a talk on fake news, this article is well with a read. For various reasons, outlined in this article, humans are good at believing poor quality information. We all need to learn to be healthy skeptics!
Editor’s note: The focus for this piece is digital marketing but can be swapped out for learning too. The message here is to focus on what digital learning looks like in its entirety rather than buying off the shelf solutions to deliver a digital experience (thankyou to Meg Peppin for sharing).
Editor’s note: Data from Spotify shows that podcasts are popular throughout the day, not just the commute to and from work. More reason to add podcasts as a learning channel?
Editor’s note: The context for this data is not available so you don’t get to see what types of video/content is leading to this this viewing behaviour. However, in our quantative data terms this does provide a picture of the preferred length for an engaging video.
Editor’s note: Research shows that providing a counter-argument, rather than saying information is wrong, is the more effective way to get people to change their minds. Application potential in learning?
Yesterday was filming day for Learning Now TV and in my research slot I covered…
Editor’s note: Some great examples here of how learning is being disrupted by chat bots in mixed reality. Amazing stuff and it is happening now.
This data is US-focused but if the UK is similar then organisations need to look at a future, older working population that is also more generationally diverse. These trends will have important implications for learning and talent development.
