If, like me, you had rather mixed feelings about Pokémon Go but couldn’t escape the buzz that surrounded the game’s release, you may have noticed that buzz is already gone. It has died a sudden and silent death. The game is still making money, it’s still being played heavily and it’s bolstered Nintendo’s shares by over 25%. So why have we all stopped talking about it so swiftly? There’s a pedagogical lesson about the evolution (or more accurately, devolution) of the human attention span here, and I want to talk about it.

When it comes to compliance training, we're faced with a complex set of challenges that range from securing budget to the way our learners see mandatory training. Clearly, delivering quality training to a diverse workforce has never been more difficult. So what can we do? Well, we think identifying and acknowledging the problems early on is one of the best places to start. Here we share some of the most commonly mentioned compliance based challenged L&D departments face in 2016, and also show you some key ways you can start to overcome them.
We all want our e-learning to be successful and deliver results, and in order for that to happen you must capture the hearts and minds of your employees too. Today we’re going to explore some of the key components of e-learning design that will grasp your learners’ full attention by helping them find their flow. A state of flow will foster an optimum emotional state where they are able to truly connect with your training, generating full focus and an immersive, engaging learning experience.
Compliance training is important. It’s a key function in most L&D departments, and for good reason too. Deliver it badly and it could cost your organisation dearly in legal fees down the line. So it’s vital to protect yourself, and nothing ensures high knowledge retention better than high quality training. So, it’s time to get smarter with your compliance strategy. But what composition does your mandatory training really need to make it work for your learners and your business?

Earlier this month Google announced that they would be altering the way they support Flash in Chrome, by delivering a new ‘HTML5 by default’ policy. This means that every website (barring a whitelisted ten which include YouTube) will use HTML5 as the default, and only use Flash when there are no alternative options. Faster internet browsing and better user experience are Google’s goals. But these changes don’t just impact Chrome; they naturally have an impact on the internet of things, which your e-learning inevitably falls into. But does this mean Google is destroying your ability to deliver Flash-based e-learning well?
