Invite-to-Watch extends the reach and the effectiveness of your learning content by putting it in front of those who will value it most.Social learning is, arguably, human civilization’s oldest and (again, arguably) most effective methods to gather new knowledge. And while our approach to learning, especially within the enterprise, has evolved thanks to fresh technology, it’s hard to argue the lasting benefits of sharing knowledge and learning from those we collaborate with.Wringing the most value out of social and experiential learning, however, depends on a company’s ability to centralize that knowledge somewhere. Those interactions your employees have with peers and managers are where the majority of learning on the job occurs – and their value is truly priceless. Indeed, most learning happens through interactions with peers and managers, and through on-the-job experiences and problem-solving.In fact, social learning approaches are said to have a 75:1 ROI ratio compared to formal, web-based training activities. When you consider that measuring and determining learning ROI is a challenge that’s top of mind for many of today’s L&D professionals, the clear benefits of enabling social learning are likely the reason the majority of companies are making sure social learning is part of their learning mix (or at least plan to do so in the future).

With high hopes of addressing a problem that was getting in the way of everyday business, you invested time and money into creating an eLearning course. Sadly, it hasn’t made a difference. Completion rates are low, the original problem remains, and you now have a new problem: Your lengthy (but useful) course is a dud and is not having an impact. Seems tricky, but rest assured there is a quick fix on your issue. Contrary to long-form training, microlearning offers the same information but packages it into smaller segments.

Why e-learning is key to building disaster-proof education

Article | June 3, 2021

We’re only three months into 2020, yet the world has already witnessed enough challenging times to last for the entire year: the massive bushfires in Australia, the volcano eruption and the earthquake in the Philippines, the floods in Jakarta, the powerful storms in the US and Western Europe and, of course, the coronavirus pandemic. I live and teach in the Philippines, a country that is also affected by typhoons about 20 times a year, by monsoon rains that cause flooding and also by man-made disasters such as armed conflicts in some regions. I may be exposed to more disasters than the average educator, but believe me when I say, there are no winners in these situations. Every aspect of life can be — and usually is — negatively impacted by natural disasters. Education makes no exception.
