How To Get Learners To Pay Attention

Posted by Edvance360 on Mar 15, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Harvard Business Review's recent article "How to Get People to Pay Attention During Corporate Training" maintains that "precious little time or money is spent on preparing and enabling the mind of the learner" resulting in potential loss of investment - in a $160 billion yearly investment.

Bottom line: "if the learner doesn’t have the 'in-the-moment' mental capacity to pay attention, these investments aren’t paying off."

So, HBR recommends starting with teaching all professionals MINDFULNESS.

Using Your LMS To Make New Employees Feel Welcome

Posted by Edvance360 on Mar 8, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Our experts have previously written blogs about using several specific Edvance360 tools to build relationship, make the culture more collaborative, and generally onboard employees (or clients or volunteers) better. Since this is always such a well-received topic we thought we'd write about it again - especially since Harvard Business Review's Management Tip of the day was so appropriate for today (click here for link). If you're not subscribing, it's a great little daily tip that is pulled from a best-selling book. (Today's was from "How to Make Sure Employees Feel Welcome From Day One", in case anyone is curious.)

The Coming Tsunami of Adult Learners: WHO

Posted by Edvance360 on Feb 8, 2019 10:02:00 AM

In a previous post, we interviewed Professor Stephen Higgins in preparation for ABHE 2018, a smaller accrediting body specifically for Bible colleges and seminaries. His unique perspective on adult learners comes from his varied background teaching adult learners and leading schools that appeal to adult learners, but his predictions are of interest to anyone who deals with adult learners. The timing is significant for two reasons:

1) Growing popularity of smaller or "boutique" accrediting bodies (such as ABHE or NCCET) and micro-credentialing vs. regional accrediting bodies (SACS COC or HLC),  and

2) Warning signs that a convergence of outside forces and student-led demands may be loosed on current forms of post-secondary education, affecting not only Higher Education but also corporate learning environments.

We will explore this topic - and how Edvance360 LMS is uniquely poised to assist our clients to serve these adult learners - in the next several blogs.

Track & Report What Matters Most...To You

Posted by Edvance360 on Jan 3, 2019 2:50:00 PM

Imagine, if you could, a system that allows you to pull all of your own custom reports to sort and filter by data that matters most to you. Now, imagine who you would share that information with if you could easily export that data.

A Special Thank You To All Our Clients

Posted by Edvance360 on Dec 21, 2018 4:14:54 PM

As the holiday season goes into hyper-drive, we at Edvance360 want to take a moment to thank our users, our clients, and our partners. There may be many things this season is known for - not all of them positive for everyone perhaps (ridiculous traffic, parking in the boonies, too much eggnog, that same fruitcake that people keep passing around, just to name a few) - but we are letting this time prompt us to be mindful of the people who allow us to serve them.
