A picture is worth 1000 words. When information is presented visually, in a form of an infographic, one finds it easy to assimilate the content in it. Several useful infographics were published earlier on this site covering a wide range of topics. We thought, it would be a good idea to make a compilation of some of the best infographics for your quick reference.
Here they are:
1. Many a times there is confusion between what eLearning is and what it is not. This infographic not only dispels some of the misconceptions of eLearning, it also gives information about what goes into creating an effective eLearning course.
2. Check out this infographic to get a bird’s eye view on when classroom training is beneficial and when one can opt for eLearning. Both have their unique advantages and have to be used based on the learning need and context. This infographic could serve as a good reference point.
3. Instructional Designers most commonly refer to the ADDIE model when designing eLearning courses. There may be modifications and improvisations to the model for a given situation but in principle, the 5 phases of the ADDIE model are still relevant and having it in the form of an infographic is a useful resource for any learning professional.
4. This is a handy reference checklist for any HR professional involved in new employee orientation program. This infographic lists down the key information that should be part of an induction training program.
5. Learning Management System as it was initially meant to be is very different from what we see today. However, this is not the end because there are several new innovations that are becoming part of the LMS landscape today. Check out this infographic to learn the key trends in the LMS market.

Do share the infographics with your peers, pin it, instagram it, tweet it and spread the word around. If you have found a particular infographic useful, do drop a line to share how you have used it and how it has helped in your job.

We all have a child in ourselves, energetic, fun loving and having zeal to explore and win games. In this state, we learn the best because our emotional state is very positive and retention of learning will be at the peak.
How do we bring out the kid in ourselves, while learning a new skill or acquiring knowledge?
Introducing new processes and software applications can be quite a daunting task. Employees are not receptive to change and teaching all the details and minute steps can be time consuming. Conducting classroom sessions might not be a very beneficial solution. Learners will need to set aside time from their busy schedules, and often, this might not be feasible. The limited number of facilitators will also slow down the learning process. Facilitators will also need to travel extensively to teach learners spread all across the globe. All these arrangements take up considerable efforts, time and financial resources.
I would like to pick your brains with a quick question on compliance assessment.
In your experience with assessing compliance topics, is it OK to let learners keep repeating a quiz until they achieve 100%?
The mining industry plays a key role in the Australian economy. According to a report published by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Government of Victoria, in 2013, mineral and energy commodities account for 60% of the nation’s total exports.
In this blog, I wish to share my experience on how I developed an interesting course though it had technical content.
This course on finance was a challenge for a non-financial person like me. Initially, it panicked me as I have no idea about finance. But, as an instructional designer, my approach towards this project was more on “educating not teaching”. For this, I did a lot of content comprehension to educate myself before I educate others. We will now see how I faced this challenge and accomplished my goal.
We still remember things that we have learned during our childhood. We remember many incidents that happened long ago. But, there are some instances where we don’t remember things. This,most probably, happens during education. Being a human being, it’s quite natural to forget things.
When you google the words ‘eLearning vendor’, you will come across many websites. Each website contains a lot of information, and sometimes, it may be misleading. Moreover, you might be busy or have no time to go through all the content to check the credibility of the vendor.
When most of us think about product training, we tend to think about the training programs provided for sales people to stay ahead of competitors. But, this type of training is given not only to sales people, but also to other audiences who need product training. Firstly, it should be provided to technicians to equip them with knowledge of every part of a product and its working. This helps them provide better service and ensure customer satisfaction. Another important audience who should be trained on your products is customers. A good training program provides the basic knowledge of your products, their usage and benefits, which goes a long way in building loyal customers.
Welcome to today’s blog post. Most of the articles, blogs and eLearning companies today portray an impression that the working domain of instructional designers is limited to eLearning. This is not true. The instructional design concept came into existence even before the invention of personal computers. E-learning or the educational technology uses the instructional design principles to enable superior understanding and enhanced learning experiences. Now that most of the training institutions have moved on to digital classrooms globally, I would like share some ideas on instructional designing for technology-enabled classroom training. These ideas will be applicable even in a traditional Instructor-led Training (ILT) program except that the supporting documents will be hard copies and not digital.
An online learning community (OLC) is a web-based learning environment with the latest digital technologies, where interconnected learning participants communicate, construct their knowledge collaboratively and share their personal experiences (Palloff & Pratt, 1999; Preece, 2000; Richardson, 2006).
