Live Online Learning and the Future of Training: Insights From Arlo Training Management System CEO John Mitchell

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.

Literacy for Kids: Instilling a Love of Reading in the Early Years Through eLearning

And while education institutions aim to create interesting and robust learning curriculums to encourage strong literacy rates among children, some kids still lag behind. Literacy for Kids, an online learning platform founded by a mother and former teacher, is proving to be the perfect supplemental eLearning space for kids to increase their literacy competencies from an early age.

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”.
