  • Provide Post Training Event Support

    //learndashcom.r.worldssl.net/wp-content/uploads/training-workshop-628x353.jpg

    I often write about how much time is involved with creating a good online course. Well, the same is true for live training events. Multiple day workshops take an immense amount of preparation. Not only do you have content to worry about but now you also have to factor in the various logistics that are […]

  • Specializing in the ELearning Industry

    If you are reading this then there is a good chance that you are either already involved in the training & elearning indstury, or at least have an interest in getting involved. I may be biased (okay I am definitely biased) but I strongly believe that this industry has something to offer for anyone. For […]

  • Stop Abandoning Your Learners!

    I have seen it countless of times. Employees are encouraged to take a virtual training course (or perhaps a live seminar) because they are told that it is vital to their job. They take time out of their busy schedules to learn new skills and processes. The instructors (be it virtually or in-person) are full of energy […]

  • History of Training and Development

    I have a confession to make: I am a sucker for history. Growing up history courses were always my favorite in school though I never really understood why. Perhaps it’s because we can learn from people who were just like us who have faced similar challenges that we face today. That being the case, it […]

  • Learning is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

    //learndashcom.r.worldssl.net/wp-content/uploads/person-thinking-628x353.png

    When I have conversations with people about elearning, training, and all things related, it I find a curious similarity in the way these events are described. All seem to be referred to as standalone, finite events. While less common in the educational sector, I found this to be unanimously true with my corporate consulting engagements. […]

  • 5 Presenting Skills For Live Training

    As much as we love elearning here at LearnDash there will always be a need for in-person (live) training. Instructor-led training (ILT) is a critical component to most training programs. In fact, the more complex a topic the greater the need for instructors and traditional classrooms. Often times you just can’t beat the live interaction […]

  • Your Brain Wants To Learn – Feed It!

    //learndashcom.r.worldssl.net/wp-content/uploads/reading-at-computer-628x353.jpg

    Did you know that everyone enjoys learning? It’s true. Usually the only time people don’t enjoy learning is if they are required to learn something that they don’t care about, or if they don’t enjoy the learning experience. But overall, humans love to learn, and I mean “learning” in the rawest of forms. Sure, there are […]

  • Choosing Your Training Venue

    //learndashcom.r.worldssl.net/wp-content/uploads/networking-628x353.png

    Despite all of the great benefits for using elearning, it isn’t always the best way to deliver training. There are some topics that just make more sense to delivery via live instruction. Perhaps the content is complex in nature, or the intended audience is not very large. It’s also possible that your training program is […]

  • Aligning Learning to Performance

    For years the argument against business implementing a robust learning program has been that it’s too difficult to measure the impact. This is an excuse that is quickly fading. There are reliable ways to determine the return on investment from learning programs. Still, whenever training is brought up at an organization then this is something […]
