3 Elements of Great Dashboard Design

Every picture tells a story. As busy, visual beings, we want information, quickly. And we don’t want to have to work at understanding it. Don’t make us think, just give it to us on a silver platter.

Learning management systems (LMS) house mountains of learning data. Making sense of it all can be daunting. In fact, with only 4,000 learners, an LMS can easily generate over 6 million records!

How to Use Reinforcement to Increase Learner Engagement

Behavioural science has inspired new ideas to increase the stickiness of your content and promote learner engagement. It doesn’t matter if you are a chief learning officer, trainer or instructional designer, creating engaging content can be a moving target.

How to Maximize Your Business Operations with Moodle LMS

If you’re using the Moodle learning management system (LMS), you’ve discovered how powerful it is for job skills training. But if that’s all you’re using it for, you’re missing out on opportunities to maximize nearly every area of your business operations.

Moodle’s flexibility and powerful features make it a valuable tool to improve your company’s productivity and the overall growth of your organization. Let’s explore three ways you can adapt Moodle to maximize your company’s operations.

Evaluating the Impact of Corporate Training on the Bottom Line

As a Learning & Development (L&D) professional, you know that corporate training is valuable to your organization. After all, talent matters more than ever, and L&D programs are critical to building a skilled workforce.

The good news is that your top leaders also agree. In fact, a 2014 PwC study found that 64% of CEOs consider building a skilled workforce a top priority. And in most organizations, this commitment has been reflected in the expansion of training budgets over time.

Capturing Data to Improve the eLearning Experience with Learning Analytics

Whether you work in industry or education, your training initiatives should have well-defined goals, and produce measurable outcomes, for example, using learning analytics and data from your Moodle LMS.

By clearly establishing objectives, collecting data and analyzing trends, you will obtain a much clearer understanding of how well your training programs are performing. This will allow you to see which programs are working, what you need to improve, and how best to implement that change.

How To Engage Learners to Fall in Love with Learning

So your company has taken the plunge and made a huge investment in a learning management system (LMS). Finally, learning programs are all set up in your LMS and staff members are engaged in learning and training. But are they really engaged? We’ve all seen the signs that make you wonder. Learners who appear bored and detached. Who don’t complete courses. Who, if questioned, come away not knowing any more than they did before they had the training.

It’s called D-i-s-e-n-g-a-g-e-m-e-n-t, with a capital D. In the realm of learning, this dreaded condition affects productivity, not to mention a company’s bottom line.


Your Three-step Framework to Drive Learner Engagement

Reinforcement, the process of strengthening a behaviour, is a crucial guiding concept for your learning management system (LMS) content. You can't expect your audience to change the way they do things on a daily basis if you simply present information to them. You need to adopt an approach that addresses the four reinforcement gaps and that follows a three-step framework to improve learner engagement rates.

Outgrowing Moodle? Let’s Talk Totara!

Moodle is the most widely used learning management system (LMS) in the world with 130 million users and counting! Moodle was built for the educational space and, while it is wonderful at what is does, it sometimes lacks the functionality needed for corporations. This is where Totara Learn really steps up to the plate!

Full-Managed Cloud Hosting for Moodle Vs. Self-Hosting

Once your organization has made a decision to use Moodle as your chosen learning management system (LMS), another big decision lies ahead. Do you host it yourself or rely on a Moodle hosting services partner to guide you?

Many factors play into this decision. Keeping a large project like a Moodle implementation in-house can be overwhelming, time restrictive, and, believe it or not, can end up being more costly than outsourcing to a Moodle hosted provider.

4 Uses for Predictive Learning Analytics

Learning & Development (L&D) programs typically have two high-level goals:

1. Successfully imparting knowledge and skills to trainees
2. Ensuring that trainees apply their new knowledge and skills on the job

While these goals are simple in theory, they are often complex in practice, and it is not always clear which programs or approaches are most effective at achieving them. This ambiguity results in a large amount of scrap learning – training that is delivered, but does not affect job performance, whether due to a failure of learning or development.
