With a $5 million investment to be divided between three target projects, Google and Walmart have put their heft behind an initiative to advance the workforce. This is the first time these two industry leaders have collaborated. One of the projects, Opportunity@Work, hopes to expand its current system and serve the underserved with a hiring channel focused on skills. The MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy is putting its grant money toward expanding the Inclusive Innovation Challenge to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship globally. And the Drucker Institute is working with the city of South Bend, Indiana, to design a system dedicated to continuous learning for every citizen.

On average, you have seven seconds to grab your audience's attention with online content that screams that it is absolutely for them. If it's a piece of online learning, you then have to help and encourage that person to do something better or different as a result, because that's the whole point, right? That's quite a tall order when you think about it, but it's what's required if you want to make e-learning that works.
As the skills gap continues to pressure businesses, the need to retrain and upskill employees may continue to grow. In a recent study, 67 per cent of employees said they needed more training to keep current with market needs, yet only 40 per cent said their employers provided the opportunity to do so.
The usage of videos for learning is an established practice. It is seeing an acceleration in adoption on account of the wider usage of mobile learning and microlearning. In this article are eight examples on how you can use video based learning.
