eLearning Days as Makeups for School Cancellations

Weather prognosticator extraordinaire Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Groundhog Day, which means another six weeks of winter weather if you believe in the legend. Either way, depending on where you’re at in the world, there’s still a whole lot of winter left, which has some school administrators and teachers pulling their hair out from all the snow days that have already been racked up this winter. For many school districts, this means extending the school year beyond the originally chosen last day of school to make up for excessive snow days beyond the handful already built into the academic schedule. After all, public schools have to meet their state’s requirements for hours of classroom instruction. But maintaining student engagement on makeup days that would otherwise be summer vacation is especially difficult. But there’s now a growing movement to ease this frustration, and it’s eLearning days that are proving to be a viable alternative. Continue reading

eLearning ROI Metrics

Whether your company’s eLearning efforts are small or large, many eLearning professionals still face an uphill battle in terms of getting the resources needed to produce quality eLearning programs and courses.

5 Ways to Gamify eLearning for Better Engagement

In the last decade, there have been countless articles written about why gamification of eLearning makes good business sense. The basic argument is that gamification makes any eLearning program, course or module more fun and exciting, which translates into increased learner engagement, higher retention of material learned, and eventually better business results that can have a real impact on the company’s bottom line. As a concept, it’s very easy to get behind this idea. But when it comes time to actually gamify eLearning for better engagement, the result is often not much more than a few achievement badges learners can earn for completing particular courses or trainings.
