Bridging the gap between human learners and eLearning technology
The 21st century is the age of technology, and that technology has significantly impacted education and training, according to SHIFT’s eLearning blog. From the classroom to the workplace, learners enjoy the advantages of blended learning opportunities (mixture of on-site and computer-based courses) or fully online courses and training modules. Sometimes, however, as eLearning course developers and trainers, we get so caught up in the “bells and whistles” of educational technology that we forget about those human learners on the other side of the computer screen. Truly effective eLearning design must strive to bridge the gap between our human learners–the consumers of our content–and the eLearning technology we enjoy implementing into our training courses.
