When creating online courses, using quizzes is crucial to interact with your learners, assess retention, reinforce knowledge or promote awareness. However, to create the perfect quiz, there are some things you need to know.
Every company has its training goals. Whether to up or re-skill people or to comply with mandatory training, learning managers or team leaders are responsible for their teams’ training to bridge knowledge gaps and, at the same time, promote personal and organisational growth. But with teams dispersed in different locations, driven by the rise of hybrid workplaces, they face a new challenge. In a sea of e-learning approaches, how to decide which is more effective? Synchronous, asynchronous, or a combination of the two?
The world is constantly evolving but, sometimes, there are unexpected triggers that force us to change faster. The 2020 pandemic made us change our standards and rely even more on technology and digital means. In the learning industry that brought some distress, especially regarding the conversion of in-person training to online delivery.
Digital education allows us to share knowledge through an infinity of experiences. But in this sea of possibilities, how can we catch people’s attention and ensure their engagement? Immersive learning! But what exactly does this mean?
Every day, in everything we do, we communicate. When our goal is to teach something or to share knowledge with someone, we need to be sure that our message is well-understood. Visual communication has that power. Let’s explore why.
Creating a dedicated learning academy for your customers has a double purpose. On the one hand you can teach users how to make the most out of your product or service with product and skills training, making them expert users.

On the other hand, by sharing high-quality industry-related content you are adding significant value to your brand and positioning your company in the market, attracting more leads, and generating more sales.

We all know that video is the most popular medium for communication and sharing information. We also know that video training is a great way to enhance performance, as it provides a standardized method of sharing knowledge throughout an organization and is a way to communicate in an engaging manner with all its stakeholders. But there’s more to video besides being trendy.
Oh, working from home, so comfortable and easy. Well… not quite!
If you think that working remotely means working from the couch in front of the TV with a snack in your hand, forget about it! It’s true that it has several advantages, like skipping morning traffic, avoiding getting all soaked in a rainy day or, my favourite, working from a terrace in a beautiful day. But, on the other hand, it means that you have to work harder to stay in tune with your colleagues, hoping they will be willing to cope with you in order to overcome some “distance-caused” obstacles. And there’s also the loneliness issue to face. In other words, working remotely is not for everyone.
Nowadays, a significant part of our life is digital, mostly spent online. We work online, we communicate online, we have fun online, we share online. Actually, we share a lot online – from work files to family photos - but most of all we share knowledge.
