The ROI Lens for Online Learning

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Apr 3, 2018 11:00:00 AM

From Qualitative to Quantitative Gain

 

Business processes can be carefully calibrated, well-defined, widely available—and, if lacking good execution, worthless. Transmission of that knowledge is transformational and the essential element is training. Team members with good process knowledge perform better, with confidence, and understand their own talent as an asset to the company, generating a culture of high performance and elevated capability.

 

This understanding is at the heart of online training. By directly enabling employees with process knowledge, productivity improves. Employees understand their own talent to be important and relevant; their proficiency neither assumed, nor intractably established. There is room for human development. Employers, in turn, understand that this expertise will be a valuable asset. They see cultivating talent to improve business as a capital investment, rather than a sunk cost.

How Can You Motivate Online Learners

Engagement Strategies: Emerging Insights to Motivate Online Students

 

 

Learning an entirely new subject, gaining proficiency in a skill set or even mastering it are ambitions that can now be accomplished with Internet access and massive open online courses (MOOCs). While MOOCs offer increased flexibility as a unique learning platform, they also present unique challenges—student motivation being a top example. Some students may be intrinsically motivated by personal curiosity and goals, pursuing coursework at a regular pace. However, other students may be motivated by extrinsic rewards related to finishing coursework, and find regular engagement difficult.

Understanding MOOCs

Posted by Cherie McInturff on Jan 10, 2018 7:46:37 AM

 

The availability of non-traditional educational opportunities is flourishing in the age of widespread Internet access, allowing for an expansion of new learning modalities in how information is conveyed. From traditional students and professionals to skilled workers and the insatiably curious, new ways of learning have created opportunities for anyone with internet access and the drive to seek out information. There is a massive demand for educational services, however, a one-size-fits-all approach is not the most efficient way to add value, particularly in professional settings. Certificates are now more common than associates or master’s degrees, demonstrating that educational opportunities no longer must adhere to the rigid format of brick and mortar classrooms. So, in this brave new world of knowledge acquisition, what does the new normal look like?
