iD Tech, the global leader in STEM education, has launched online math tutoring as part of their popular Online Private Lessons—live, one-on-one remote instruction customized to students' interests, skill levels, and goals. Sessions are led by subject-matter experts - who serve as mentors as much as they do teachers - and are being rolled out to meet the growing need for new and dynamic learning experiences that are also relevant and personal in nature. The best-in-class tech education company revolutionized summer back in 1999 by blending fun STEM learning with the traditional camp experience, and then again by bringing that entire experience online when COVID arrived.
Endurance Learning | August 17, 2021
Endurance Learning has launched a new website going in-depth into 51 Elements of Amazing Learning Experiences, as defined in Brian Washburn's book, What's Your Formula?: Combine Learning Elements for Impactful Training. The companion website lets anyone in the Learning & Development field dig deeper into all 51 elements and find more resources to learn and explore.
"When Brian came to me with his first draft of the book, I almost immediately thought about how valuable this information could be in a free resource on the web," said Tim Waxenfelter, COO and co-founder of Endurance Learning. "Our hope is that the elements and formula analogies help trainers to more easily visualize strategies which they can apply immediately to their learning programs."
From critical gas-like elements like the air we breathe, present in every training room (think instructional design or visual design), to radioactive elements, powerful and dangerous yet commonly used (think PowerPoint), the new site lets every learning and development professional explore the elements and how they interact. Whether you're an experienced learning designer or new to the field, this website, and the book that inspired it, was created to help you find inspiration for your next training program.
"I'm incredibly proud of the book and believe that readers will and should want more from it once they finish. If we're trying to innovate and create a more powerful learning experience, experimenting is going to be part of that process. 51elementsoflearning.com was built to support professionals as they try new approaches to learning." said Brian Washburn, CEO and co-founder of Endurance Learning.
