What color is your online adult course?
The New York Times
AS part of the latest wave of online learning platforms, Massive Online Open Courses (Moocs) have gone viral. They can be useful for certain students, although those interested in changing or enhancing their careers should consider their more intensive sister, distance learning. A Mooc is a mostly free, open course that nearly anyone can apply for and "attend" online. While there may be readings and lectures, students are generally not graded by a professor the way they would be in a traditional college course. You may often come and go as you please.

How making employees lifelong learners can help your company succeed
Entrepreneur
Business moves at a breakneck speed today, and the price of that rapid pace is often a lack of time for learning. That's why it was especially refreshing to hear Satya Nadella, Microsoft's newly appointed CEO, recently speak about his passion for and commitment to continuous improvement, even with the increased responsibilities and demands of his new role. "What defines me ... I'm a lifelong learner," said Nadella during the Q&A following his appointment. "I get energized when I see people achieve standards. That's the thing that gets me going."

Employers must help to fill void in essential skills
The StarPhoenix
Lane is the director of human capital policy at the Canada West Foundation. There's been a lot of talk lately in government and business about Canada's skilled worker shortage, but much of it misses a critical point. What we should be talking about instead is the shortage in workers with adequate essential skills. Essential skills are those we all must have to thrive in our work. Oral communication, reading, document use, computer use, working with others, basic math, thinking, continuous learning and writing are those essential skills. Every job demands these skills to varying degrees, and they are transferable from one job to the next. Canadians should all leave school with these skills and continue to develop them over time.

Impress your boss; use technology to get more from your training budget
TrainingZone
When budgets are tight lots of buyers immediately try to squeeze their current suppliers and get the prices down. It may work in the short term but generally it backfires in the longer run; it makes the suppliers unhappy and that frequently affects quality and commitment. An alternative is to actually look at what you are doing overall.

Is ILT going the way of the rotary phone?
TrainingPros
The short answer is no. Instructor-led training is here to stay but less and less it will be the training strategy of choice. We will continue to employ face-to-face classroom experiences for smaller audiences where the interplay among the students and with the instructor is critical to the success of the learning experience.
