Engaging Learning and the Serious eLearning Manifesto

Clark Quinn

There were nine elements that characterized why learning should be ‘hard fun’ More recently, we released the Serious eLearning Manifesto. Here we had eight values that differentiated between ordinary elearning and serious elearning. What is the alignment between Engaging Learning and the Serious eLearning manifesto? The elements of the Serious eLearning Manifesto (SeM) are pretty straightforward.

Some new elearning companies ;)

Here’s a collection of those that have piqued my interest of late: Sisters eLearning: these folks are taking a kinder, gentler approach to their products and marketing their services. Their signature offering is a suite of templates for your elearning featuring cooperative play. It’s a serendipity model, where there’s a chance it just might be the right bit at the right time, which is certainly better than your existing elearning.

Levels of eLearning Quality

Clark Quinn

Of late, I’ve been both reviewing eLearning, and designing processes & templates. As I’ve said before , the nuances between well-designed and well produced eLearning are subtle, but important. Reading a forthcoming book that outlines the future but recounts the past, it occurs to me that it may be worthwhile to look at a continuum of possibilities.

Reordering the Serious eLearning Manifesto

Clark Quinn

So, as you may know (and if you don’t, you should ), almost three years ago now, I teamed up with colleagues Michael Allen, Julie Dirksen, & Will Thalheimer (all worth knowing about) and put together the Serious eLearning Manifesto. So, we were (and are) frustrated with what was and is happening under the rubric of eLearning. Michael was intrigued by the concept of Serious Games, and wondered why we didn’t treat elearning seriously as well. (A

elearning versus mlearning

Clark Quinn

pointed to this post saying “mLearning is starting to diverge from eLearning not only in specific meaning, but in approach and design as well”, and I want to politely disagree. Depends, of course, on what you mean by elearning, to start with. The clear implication is that elearning is about courses on the desktop. Of course, I acknowledge that, to most, elearning is the simple case. Mayra Aixa Avilar (who I hope to meet someday, maybe at mLearnCon ?)pointed

Q&A on the Future of Social, Mobile and eLearning

Dan Pontefract

I was asked to comment on a few questions related to eLearning, social learning, etc. What does the future of eLearning look like? I’ve always loathed the term eLearning.

Far too many eLearning offerings remain ‘click next’ rote memory exercises.
