Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming our world. Already present in many sectors of activity, from medicine to transportation and the advent of so-called "intelligent cities", this technology is here to stay.
Choosing the colours for an online training course is probably one of the most fun steps in designing for this medium. However, this cannot only be based on personal taste and the mood of the moment. In addition to knowing the rules of this art, research can now guide us further.
Since the dawn of time, human beings have been telling stories to pass on their most precious values and knowledge to their fellows. Nowadays, this activity is mainly used as entertainment and associated with childhood. Research tells us that a well-crafted story can become a powerful learning tool, even for learners who have long since reached adulthood.
Already bouncy and sneaky by nature, our attention span is being severely strained in these times of overstraining. Yet attention is essential to our cognitive effectiveness...
The short answer: unfortunately, not as good as we think we are… Over the past few years, some research has helped us to better discern between reality and myth regarding our ability to multitask.
As fragile as it is precious, our attention span is the basis not only of our learning but also of the accomplishment of all our daily tasks. In these times of overstretching, one of the first steps we can take to preserve and improve it is to get to know it better.
Powered by AI, intelligent adaptive learning is the most promising form of personalized learning in online training. It optimizes the chances of success for each learner by allowing them to follow a training path that adapts in real-time to their profile. After presenting three benefits of intelligent adaptive learning for the learner, in a previous article, here are three from the employer’s perspective.
The ultimate in personalized learning, the "intelligent adaptive learning" - "intelligent" because it is powered by artificial intelligence - can generate in real-time for each learner the most appropriate learning path to achieve his or her goals.
Personalized learning is not new; just think of tutoring, which has been around for a long time. Today, however, thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), adaptive hypermedia research and the rise of big data, it has taken a distinctly high-tech, science-fiction-like turn. In its most sophisticated version, which can be described as "intelligent adaptive learning", it generates in real-time, for each learner, the most appropriate route to achieve their goals.
In online training, the learner most often stands alone in front of a screen... Is it impossible to see a social dimension blossom in such a context? Quite the contrary! Here are 10 key points to bring light into it.
