MAKE TRAINING FUN!

Employee motivation and engagement is a critical component of employee relations in any organization today. When you add training requirements to everyday work tasks, it can be perceived as extra work that needs more time and energy than a person already spends at the workplace. It becomes imperative that employees feel propelled by something more than just managerial directives to take on and complete training. Additionally, L&D invests a lot in developing, procuring, and tailoring content for organizational training initiatives.

Click below to see how Adobe Captivate Prime can help you make training fun at work, and keep learners / employees engaged and motivated.

The State of #EdTech, 2020

At the end of 2019, a call was put out by the folks over at EdTechDigest for comments and insight into what industry and education leaders thought the state of educational technology would be in 2020.

Featuring the ‘Top 100 Influencers in EdTech’, ’10 Companies to Watch’, and ‘Leading Voices of Edtech’ weighing in on the state of education, tech’s role, and what’s ahead—this is a must-read for anyone passionate about the future of learning

Well, the report was published earlier this week and yours truly was featured among the ‘leading voices’ section. Here’s my contribution:

“The state of education is depressingly bleak. So many engaged and passionate teachers (and students) are over-worked, over- observed, under-paid, under- supported, under-valued by the very establishment that should be there to support and encourage them. If it wasn’t for their passion and dedication, education (and our children’s future) would be in a far worse state than it is in!”

Adobe named to 2017 Best of Elearning! Hall of Fame

Adobe Captivate Hall of Fame 2017

Drumroll, please! Adobe has been inducted to the 2017 Best of Elearning! Hall of Fame, in the very first edition of this honor. Established thirteen years ago by the Elearning! magazine, the Best of Elearning! Awards felicitate the creators of outstanding solutions. The Hall of Fame honor was added this year to recognize a brand’s continued contribution towards eLearning. Adobe Captivate, the flagship eLearning authoring tool from Adobe, has been the torchbearer in helping Adobe win the award 13 times – since 2005 – for a range of eLearning solutions.

What lies behind the exceptional track record of Adobe Captivate? How does Adobe consistently anticipate learning requirements, provide futuristic solutions, and exceed customer expectations? These were some of the questions posed to Priyank Shrivastava, Director of Marketing, Adobe, in an interview with the editors of the Elearning! Magazine. Shrivastava gives credit to the “culture of innovation and customer centricity.” He goes on to say that the brand continues to lead the category as the product teams are always clued in to customers’ pain points and work hand-in-hand with the L&D teams of customer organizations to design solutions that address their problems.

Shrivastava also points out: “Our product roadmap constantly reflects changing behavioral trends among both eLearning authors/designers as well as learners.” Adobe entered the world of mobile learning when it was still in its infancy, with the goal of empowering authors to provide awesome experiences to learners – on the devices of their choice – with minimum additional effort. Some of the industry-first features in Adobe Captivate (2017 release) that demonstrate this philosophy are:

  • Fluid Boxes – for creating fully responsive courses without any programming
  • Automatic transformation of desktop-only courses to responsive modules
  • Adobe Typekit integration – to create visually stunning courses using a full library of fonts

Success brings humility and Adobe Captivate is not resting on its laurels. Adobe continues to develop solutions that leverage the latest technologies to facilitate innovative and immersive forms of learning – continuously making it easier for authors to design and for learners to consume anywhere, anytime, on any device.

My 2015 EduBlogs Award Nominations #eddies15

Yes, it’s that time of year again … the Edublog Awards.

“The Edublog Awards started in 2004 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts and educational institutions were blocking access of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes.  The purpose of the Edublog awards is promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social media.

A thoroughly good event to get involved in, and be nominated for too. I’ve been lucky enough to have been nominated and a finalist for the 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 awards. Let’s try and get more UK nominations and success stories again this year please?

I nominate:

I was hoping to make the following nominations, but these categories aren’t available this year:

  • Best twitter hashtag or chat: #LTHEchat
  • Lifetime achievement: Jay Cross (posthumous)
  • Best free web tool: Twitter

Thank you. Nominations are open for a while longer (hint) and voting will open shortly after that (hint hint).

50 Most Influential HE Professionals Using Social Media #Jisc50social

For a month or two JISC has been asking for names and nominations to a new list they’ve been producing – 50 Most Influential HE Professionals Using Social Media. Well, the time has come and the final list has been announced.

There are some wonderful people on this list I am proud to know and call friends, and some I’m not previously aware of and will be looking at (hmm, sounds a bit stalker’ish, sorry) to learn about what they do, why, and how.

“The final line-up – chosen by a panel of social media experts, including award-winning social media editor for Times Higher Education Chris Parr, Insider Higher Ed journalist and blogger Eric Stoller, and Teacher Training Videos founder Russell Stannard, as well as Jisc’s David Kernohan and Sarah Knight – features an impressive mix of academics alongside vice-chancellors, librarians and IT and support staff.”

The final 50 features outstanding cases of social media use that others could benefit from, and we will be looking to highlight some of this excellent practice in the weeks to come.”

Even more helpful than the list is also the Twitter list, making it easier to follow the work of all those on the list.

Again, it’s an honour to be on the list, and I’d just like to sat how much I enjoy being ‘social’, talking about and sharing ideas and experiences, and above all hearing all about the wonderful things people are doing with students, learning, engagement, collaboration, technology, communication, and each other.
