My first learning experience online was a webinar. Far from eLearning or the realization that what I was doing had anything to do with eLearning, or the growth of a new learning medium, it was a webinar a professor had held to show us how to use a trading platform. The purpose was to be equipped with enough knowledge so we can adequately handle one of the most demanding trading platforms used by traders and financiers all around the world. We were playing with big boy toys!
Since our last update, we’ve maintained a fast pace of improving TalentLMS to match your ever-evolving needs and the feedback we receive daily.
We’ve made some major changes, but also dove deep into the details and fixed minor details to fit the grand image of our platform.
Let’s jump right into the overview of the features introduced on Sunday December 1st, 2013.
Training is a facet of growth that companies and organizations recognize and embrace more as years go by. For many, training is what separates a good from the perfect job, because it ensures that once you find something you like doing, you will improve and grow on a multitude of related topics and areas of expertise.
One of the challenges that eLearning professionals face is knowing just where to find useful and effective resources for course design. However, there are a variety of sites that offer wonderful instructional design tools that materials for you to choose from. Better yet, a vast majority of them are absolutely free. Here are the top 50 eLearning resources that you’ll want to check out before creating your next course or lesson module:
There is an absolutely overwhelming amount of information on the Internet on how to do things right in different areas.
The folks over at eLearningIndustry.com had the brilliant idea of assembling tips and methods on how to become an eLearning professional, straight from the source! A Free eLearning eBook filled with tokens of wisdom from 23 eLearning professionals who come from a set of different backgrounds, some related and some completely irrelevant to eLearning and education; we get the perspective of different people who did it right and established themselves as eLearning authorities.
Blended Learning is a topic I love to discuss; partly because it is like talking about the land of opportunity, but also because I can almost never be wrong. See, the thing about new ideas is that in a field in which you don’t have standards set in stone, new ideas – even when completely out of scope, have an ability to inspire new features, improvements, or lead to better ideas.
With the help of our creative counterpart at eFront we created a FREE eLearning eBook, on everything anyone needs to know about eLearning!
In this eBook you get to read about hot topics, best practices, and other information ranging from the very essentials to the very important specifics.
For those new to eLearning, the first chapters are dedicated to the history and basics of eLearning, topics essential to anyone who wants a good understanding of the Online Learning concept, as well as how it’s done.
For those who want some deeper understanding of eLearning concepts and specific information on how to create engaging content, or simply get the most out of your course, the eBook is rich in information on the latest eLearning trends such as gamification, micro-learning, blended learning etc, as well as the applications of eLearning in the business environment and its potential in corporate training.
Dive right into it, whether you are new to the scene, or simply want to enrich your knowledge with some new information and tips!
This eBook will be subject to updates, so if you have anything you would like to see in the table of contents, please let us know!
Having wrapped up what Discussions and the latest E-commerce features have to offer to our users, let’s jump right into talking about the addition of Custom Backgrounds for Certificates, Google Fonts, and other small yet important feature tweaks we introduced recently.
At TalentLMS we want to provide people with valuable opportunities to learn but at the same time we want to equip trainers with great tools for selling their courses.
A few days ago, celebrating our first birthday was coupled with a major software update, for which you can find detailed information here. Discussions is a feature that we are hoping will bring a bigger sense of community between users, and having its ease-of-use as a top priority, we focused on a smooth user experience off-the-bat.
