Hey everyone.

With that said, here are 4 articles from this week:

Improving Employee Engagement Can Boost Revenues, Profits (Chief Learning Officer) –  A new analysis by human recourses research firm Aon Hewitt found that high levels of employee engagement can dramatically influence an organization’s growth rate, operating income and total shareholder return.

 

Fixing E-Learning’s Big Problem (Learning Technologies Magazine) – Julie Dirksen writes that e-learning has a challenge, that is a lack of direct feedback that classroom training brings from people actually in the room.  But by making a great UX design, e-learning software can remedy this problem.  By the way, my favorite UX blogger is Danielle Arad – she’s worth checking out.

 

Blended Learning: Piece by Piece (Learning Reflections – the blog from elearnity) Really interesting post on blended learning.  Adrian writes: ” Clearly there is now much more than ever, the opportunity to include technology elements in the blend and organisations are starting to grasp the opportunities that this offers. I’m certain as emerging approaches such as mobile learning becomes more embedded in organisations this will become a standard part of the mix. These opportunities though come with their own challenges and learning teams have to think through more clearly their role in creating successful blends and how they measure the value that these deliver, especially as more and more will involve informal learning methods.”
