A Training reader sent me an article about a study done at Washington community colleges, which showed that more students drop out and fewer get a passing grade when they take a class online than when they take it in a classroom.

E-learning can be an inexpensive alternative to classroom training, but does it yield the same results?

Most of us have the technology capability in our living rooms to watch a whole season’s worth of TV shows in one day and to watch other shows whenever we like via on-demand channels and our DVRs.

We watch TV programs sans commercials “on demand” and have instant access to information 24/7 via the Web. Today’s employees want that same flexibility when it comes to training.

Training Sector Is a Busy M&A Market

The professional training sector has benefitted from a variety of recent favorable trends, leading to an acceleration of mergers and acquisitions activity as larger operators begin to take a more prominent role in a fragmented industry.

It’s a Noisy World

An interesting thing happened during the years companies pulled back on training: The level of content and information coming at employees from all directions didn’t pull back with it. Instead, the noise only grew louder. The competition for attention became fiercer. The disruptions, priorities, responsibilities, and demands piled on at an alarming rate.

Harnessing Energy Microbursts in the Workplace

Some 93 percent of respondents to a survey said they are interested in improving their energy levels throughout their day. A study shows that performing a single microburst of physical activity when feeling tired (i.e., spending five minutes walking up and down stairs, at an easy pace) can triple energy levels.

Engaging Training Participants

Research shows that the more closely the subject matter is related to a participant’s job, the higher the levels of engagement, retention, and post-classroom application.

E-Learning in Higher Ed

Online learning in higher education poses different challenges due to unique characteristics of the market.

Start With Why

The key to developing engaging education lies in first establishing the motivation to learn.

Unconscious Bias

Research demonstrates that we all harbor unconscious biases. The good news is that enhanced awareness and training can create an inclusive culture that identifies and helps eliminate these hidden biases.

Focus on Finland

Training costs may be higher in Finland, but this is balanced by the low-risk environment and excellent growth potential.
