Since 2007, Jane Hart has been compiling a list of the top 200 tools that learning professionals find the most useful. It began by asking a few people to opine and now her annual top 200 list receives votes from thousands of learning and development practitioners from around the world.
What trends has she seen? What’s been the most surprising tool to top the list over the past 14 years? Take a few minutes to hear about why she originally began compiling this ranking and what she’s learned in doing it.
And don’t forget to make your voice heard. Vote on your most useful tools before voting closes at noon (BST) on Thursday, August 26!
It’s one thing to put together a creative, well-designed and engaging learning experience. It’s another thing to have your learners return to their jobs and apply what they’ve learned in the real world.
One of the biggest barriers to having your learners apply what they’ve learned is the fact that the brain simply forgets a lot of the stuff they’ve learned over the course of the day. If they can’t retain what they’ve learned, they can’t apply it.
Enter the strategy of learning reinforcement – opportunities to remind your learners about what they’ve learned, after they’ve completed a learning experience. Shannon Tipton, owner of Learning Rebels LLC, has some thoughts about using existing technologies in a nontraditional way to help reinforce the learning.
Shannon will be sharing these thoughts more in depth later this month at the Association for Talent Development’s International Conference and Expo as part of her session entitled: Drips, Bots and Blogs – Oh My! Nontraditional Methods for Learning Reinforcement.
Over the past few weeks, you’ve heard perspectives from Tim (COO), Heather (Director of Project Success), and Lindsay (L&D Manager) as part of the effort by Jane Hart and the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) to compile a list of the top 200 technology-based tools in Learning & Development.
This week, I’m sharing the top 10 tools that I utilize as a Learning and Development Manager to interact with and support customers and to create engaging in-person and virtual learning experiences.
Recently, Heather (Director of Project Success) and Tim (COO) talked about the tools they use to meet our customers’ needs. As a Learning and Development Manager at Endurance Learning, there are a wide range of digital tools I utilize in my day-to-day tasks and collaboration to complete eLearning projects.
Lindsay‘s Top 10 Tools for Online Learning
Here’s my top 10 tools for the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) list of the top 200 technology-based tools in Learning & Development.
Last week Tim (our COO) introduced our approach to picking our top ten lists as part of the effort by Jane Hart and the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) to compile a list of the top 200 technology-based tools in Learning & Development.
I love reflecting on my top 10 tools every year. It gives me an opportunity to compare my list to previous years and see what has changed and how I am growing. This year’s list looks a little bit different than other years, but not a ton. I recently took on the responsibility of Director of Project Success at Endurance Learning. In my new role, I work a lot on keeping projects moving toward deadlines and keeping resources balanced. Within this new role, I continue to touch all aspects of the eLearning project, and many tools I have used in years past continue to be essential to do my job.
Every year, at least one of us at Endurance Learning posts our choices for the list of top 200 technology-based tools curated by Jane Hart and the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT). This list is compiled by submissions that come in from learning professionals from around the world.
Since Brian first posted his top 10 list (2015) we have grown from a team of 2 to a team of 7! I was one of those original two as a co-founder of Endurance Learning with Brian. As our team has grown, so have the perspectives and tools we use. Several of us decided to share our lists and see how the different roles on our training team affect how we select our top 10 tools.
For the past 8 years, Donald Taylor has been taking the pulse of innovators and technology’s early adopters across the field of learning and development through an annual Global Sentiment Survey (download the 2021 edition here).
By asking the simple question: What will be hot in learning and development in the coming year, this survey sheds some light on some very interesting trends that any L&D practitioner should be keeping an eye on.
We’ve been hearing so much about artificial intelligence (in the news and in movies) for years and we’ve heard some theories on how it might impact the learning and development world. This week on Train Like You Listen, Brian talks with Margie Meacham of learningtogo.info, who digs into the myths and realities of AI and begins to paint a picture of what the intersection between AI and learning might be.
We are pleased to release the Trainer’s Guide to GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting is probably a platform that you have found yourself in already for meetings. But is it a platform that you have considered conducting a training session in? The Trainer’s Guide to GoToMeeting will show you how you can easily conduct your next training session via the GoToMeeting platform.
We’ve arrived in 2021 and I think it’s safe to say that virtual training is here to stay. Hopefully, you’ve had the chance to become comfortable with one or two virtual training platforms over this past year.
If Adobe Connect is your organization’s platform of choice, (or perhaps you’ve been considering it for yourself) you’re in luck. The Trainer’s Guide to Adobe Connect has arrived!
