How an LMS Supports English Language Teaching in the Workplace

lms supports english language teaching

It’s tough to determine how many native English speakers there are in the world today. In 2007, there were about 365 million. While this number is only growing as babies are born and raised among English speakers, plenty of people have learned to speak and are currently learning to speak English. For example, roughly 375 million people speak English as a second language. Incredibly, the International TEFL Academy reported in 2014 that there were 1.5 billion English language learners worldwide. Many of these individuals are learning English in the corporate classroom, for professional purposes.

The High Value of Learning Paths

elearning550

We are all on some type of path. Some of us are moving forward, and some are moving backward. Many of us are standing still. Regardless of which direction we are moving in, or if we are moving at all, our paths promise to take us to a place we’ve never been before if only we’ll travel them. This is not just a metaphor for life; it is also one for learning. If learning is anything, it is a journey. It is not a destination that can be arrived at. It is constant, never stagnant. At least, true learning is not. Corporate leaders would do well to remember this when designing employee-training programs. Some corporate training programs aren’t sufficient because … Continue Reading »

Learning Management Systems Promote Knowledge Sharing

knowledge_sharing

  There are few intangible things that are as sought after in the corporate world as good company culture. Leaders know that their organizations’ ultimate success and growth is dependent upon culture, not solely, but majorly. F. John Reh wrote, “Company culture is important because it can make or break your company. Companies with an adaptive culture that is aligned to their business goals routinely outperform their competitors. Some studies report the difference at 200% or more.” Companies having exemplary culture are ones that not only survive indefinitely, but profit when other organizations are going under. The definition of “corporate culture” varies from person to person. Some individuals believe culture refers only to shared practices and values. Others interpret company … Continue Reading »

Second, this type of learning has the power to transform employees’ attitudes about training, increase knowledge retention, and create a learning culture in the workplace, among other things. What is your estimation of experiential learning’s value now? If it’s anything less than extremely high, you are underestimating this organic-but-powerful form of learning.

Why Micro Learning Is the Future of Corporate Training

micro_learning_thumbnail

  What does “micro learning” mean to you? Don’t be intimidated by the term. Although it sounds official it is something that you probably engage in quite often – perhaps even on a daily basis. Micro learning is not a new concept, but it’s a powerful one. According to eLearning Industry’s contributor Asha Pandey, micro learning consists of “short, 3- to 5-minute focused learning nugget(s)…designed to meet a specific learning outcome.” Practically, micro learning could entail a learner watching a tutorial on YouTube or reading a 300- to 500-word educational article. Basically, any type of learning that takes place in succinct spurts and is therefore easy to digest may be considered micro learning. Micro Learning: the Key to Information Retention … Continue Reading »
