Measuring the ROI of Informal Learning

@hubcurator: This whitepaper provides insight on ways to measure informal learning, and how to balance informal/formal elements within a blend. I highly recommend downloading this wealth of ideas on connecting your learners to formal and informal knowledge sources throughout the organization.

Modernizing Legacy Content

@hubcurator: This eBook can help you develop a strategy for reworking existing content into a blend, and measuring the value of your learning assets. A highly insightful guide, this eBook focuses on: the total cost of your training portfolio; how training content depreciates over time; and how to revitalize content using Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

If Training is the Solution, What is the Problem?

@hubcurator: Before we can evaluate the effectiveness of our blended learning campaigns, we need to understand the purpose behind our work. My favorite quote from this article: "No learning intervention is created for the sake of creating it. It’s created to achieve something." Can we create purposeful blended learning without knowing what we're trying to achieve?

How To Create More Engaging eLearning Courses

@hubcurator: Another eBook for this week! This one from Shift Learning focuses on how to identify engaged learners, how learner engagement really works, and ways that we can spark engagement in our blended learning solutions.

Customer Use Cases from A New Spring

@hubcurator: A New Spring offers a learning delivery technology platform, and on this site offers examples of how their clients have used the platform to create blended learning solutions. The value in exploring this site comes from the client testimonials on the value of including informal/social learning elements, and measuring engagement of those initiatives.

Want to be Great at Something? You Need to Embrace Failure

@hubcurator: I have included this article here because we all know that not every blended learning project will go smoothly. Embracing failure is part of the learning process, and I think we can all learn from the mistakes we make, and the feedback we get from our learners. Highlighted here is the "try, fail, learn, succeed" approach. Noteworthy quote: "After awhile, you’ll accept that failing is just a part of learning, and you’ll get good at determining exactly why something failed and what you need to improve. From an organizational perspective, it’s critical "

Engaged Learning in the Information Age | Training Industry

@hubcurator: Sorting through the plethora of information out there on engagement, I came across this article that made me think differently. The focus here is on what engagement really is from a scientific perspective -- including understanding and wisdom. According to this article: "Understanding, not knowledge, separates an organization that survives from one that collapses. Wisdom separates an organization that thrives from one that merely survives.

Evaluating the Impact of Learning Programs

@hubcurator: A fantastic overview of what we need to know when evaluating any type of learning initiative. Read on: "When it comes to evaluating learning programs, there is no one-size-fits-all approach that works best. There are many variables (and obstacles) training professionals need to consider when determining how to evaluate learning programs, including the organization’s goals and culture, stakeholders and audience’s needs, needs assessments, performance analysis, resources, time, budgets, data collection methods and tools, and even the different types of knowledge and skills we are trying to impart."

The AI Technologies Reshaping Life and Livelihood

@hubcurator: I've included this article here because I want you to think about the role that artificial intelligence (AI) will play in the evaluation of our learning solutions. Adaptive learning platforms are becoming part of our solutions, but how will AI shape our learning content and the way we engage our learners? Lots to think about here!

Explore this article and learn the what, how, when, and why of this new evaluation approach.

8 Ways To Encourage Online Learner Reflection In eLearning

@hubcurator: We encourage our learners to reflect on learning, but how do we capture and leverage those reflections?
