Companies have adapted in the last two years to take their in-person training to virtual training sessions. Some organizations have allocated large sums to their online learning programs, while others have tested more cost-effective applications and programs to translate their face-to-face training programs to online.

Julioprofe: The YouTube Channel Dedicated to Increasing Learners’ Math Proficiency

However, there’s a percentage of people who have allowed themselves to be captivated by the pure sciences. Julio Alberto Rios Gallego is among these math lovers: he discovered he could both easily understand mathematical concepts, and explain them to others as an eighth-grader. But, it wasn’t until 2009 that he began to grow an online community dedicated to mass education on the subject: a YouTube channel known as ‘Julioprofe’, with 835,000 subscribers.

The Myth of the Pedagogically Neutral LMS

Having worked for almost two decades in higher education, I’ve been involved in the implementation of many different IT systems. Invariably there are a multitude of different factors at play when choosing a new system; the needs and profile of the end user, the budget available, the time frame for completion, the in-house expertise and so on. When it comes to systems directly related to teaching and learning, such as the Learning Management System (LMS) there is another, almost sacrosanct factor at play: the pedagogy or educational approach used. “It’s not about the technology, it’s the pedagogy that matters, the technology just enables us” is a commonly heard phrase. Similarly I once had someone tell me “Comparing two different LMS’s is like comparing Mercedes to BMW, they are different, but basically do the same thing – it’s all down to preference”.
