The 2014 Gamification Forecast

The 2014 Gamification ForecastWe are close to leveling up to 2014, which means it’s time to take a peek forward at the state of gamification and what we can expect in the new year. Based on the experiences in 2013 and the gamification trends that we have seen through our work at Enterprise Gamification Consulting, here is what we will see in the next 12 months.

 

#1 Gamification is here to stay

Whenever you see an article asking “Is Gamification a buzz/hype/fad?” (feel free to replace gamification with any other concept and technology and you get the same picture), you know that it’s not a fad anymore and the author needs to hurry in order not to miss the train.

We are in the fourth year of gamification, with close to two dozen gamification conferences having taken place on a global scale in 2013. Over 100 studiesmasters and doctoral thesis published on the topic demonstrate a viable and scientific interest in gamification.

And not only gamification is here to stay, so is the name itself. Even if you don’t like the term (and those discussion seem to have more shelf life than they should), the battle is lost. Gamification is here to stay. Move on, don’t make this awkward.

#2 HR will Drive Gamification

Corporations worldwide have been doing a phenominally catastrophic job of managing their most important resources: people.Gallup’s long-running studies on employee engagement reveil that on a global scale only 13% of employees are engaged. In other words: 87% or not engaged or actively disengaged – read: going so far as to even sabotage the company.

Part of the reason has been that although companies are spending billions of dollars every year on employee evaluations and management, nearly none of the approaches are creating the necessary data to evaluate the true performance and capabilities of an employee. Nor do they create an environment for engagement, with management often actively (and unconsciously) discouraging the same.

This interactive chart published by the Harvard Business Review gives a sad state of engagement.

Map: Global Employee Engagement (Gallup) Map: Global Employee Engagement (Gallup)

The result is the dismal state of engagement. This translates into a workforce that’s effectively underperforming. But because everyone is doing a bad job, your own bad job doesn’t stick out. We occasionally realize the true potential of engaged employees, when some superstar companies suddenly raise like meteorites.

Gamification solves two problems at once for HR: the core idea is that it’s design revolves around engaging the employees, and to achieve that it creates a large data trail of the activities. As gamification will eventually touch all aspects in an organization, HR needs to own gamification and oversee it’s implementation and operation.

Several of our customers have understood that already. All gamification initiatives are coordinated by their HR departments and put into a larger strategy. And that is another reason, why gamification is not a fad but here to stay: how can something that engages employees and creates such an invaluable amount of skill data be considered a short-lived fad?

#3 Gamification will Drive Big Data & Cloud

The gamification activity data collected will be the largest dataset inside an organization. And we talk about billions of records and terrabytes of data. Rajat Paharia, founder of gamification platform company Bunchball has been preaching that mantra for some time and made the case in his bestseller Loyalty 3.0. Simple calculations show you that gamification data will dwarf any other data that an organization creates. Assume that every employee generates through his or her daily work 100 activity-related records, from publishing a knowledgebase-article, sharing information with co-workers on the intranet, responding to emails, creating new key accounts, correcting a document, expensing travel costs in time, etc., and multiply that by the number of your employees. With just 10,000 employees organizations quickly create 1 million records per day. That is far more data than most transactional systems create.

This data can find use in a variety of ways:

  • for the employee in real-time to show them how they are doing and show them how they can improve and learn,
  • by the system to reward employees and give them feedback in a timely manner,
  • by HR and management to analyze activities, skills and their progression over time,
  • finding experts for different areas to match the rightly skilled employees for new projects,
  • replace periodical performance reviews with real-time feedback and learning.

As most gamification technologies are offered as software as a service, the combination of big data and Saas will drive cloud technologies as well. Even with some pushbacks thanks to NSA-spying and general skeptic in Europe, cloud-based solutions are currently the only viable way to go.

#4 From Denial to Acceptance

The success of gamification in changing behaviors and habits and making the life of people more entertaining and fun has been proven by many examples. From the anecdotal, to hard numbers in corporations, education, or healthcare, to an overwhelming evidence from scientific studies, applying gamification shows positive results.

This body of evidence helped to a lot of corporate people that we had interacted with in the past year to lay the grounds in their own organizations for gamification. When they first came to us to attend a workshop or listen to our presentation, they were the “lone nutcases” in their organization. Armed with some advice, facts & figures, and supporting materials from us, as well as connecting them with “lone nutcases” from other companies, gamification has become a new toolset for many organizations.

And a recent analysis on which companies have the most employees that have gamification in their LinkedIn profiledemonstrates in an impressive way that gamification is considered a gamechanger. With SAP, Accenture, Microsoft, IBM, Cognizant, and Oracle leading the pack, this topic is too important to keep staying in denial.

#5 Gamification will Grow Up and Lose Its Innocence

While even with the most basic gamification approaches using only pointsbadges, and leaderboards (aka PBL) the improvements in tracked metrics are astonishing, more sophisticated approaches are appearing in the first examples. After all, there are many more gamification design elements than those three that secure a longer-lasting and intrinsically motivatedengagement. Gamification designers also experience that competition (as the opposite of collaboration) is not necessarily the way to go, especially in a corporate environment.

But of course this is a learning process for gamification designers and represents a natural evolution of how we design gameful applications. While incentive systems and perks have been around for quite a while (representing Gamification 1.0), gamification based on a larger choice of extrinsic motivators such as PBL are just an intermediate step as Gamification 2.0, leading to a more sophisticated design that we can call Gamification 3.0.

We must not be surprised seeing in 2014 that beside growing up, we may see gamification losing more of its innocence. Many of us went into the gamification business with the real believe to make life and work better for people. If the year 2013 and before were an indication with a military (see the article on the IDF) or terroristic use of gamification (The world of Holy Warcraft), there is a high probability that we see more cringeworthy applications of gamification. Does this make gamification a bad thing? No, every technology and every concept can be used for good or evil. It just tells you that gamification has grown up.

#6 Convergence of Game & Gamification Technologies

As gamification practitioners consider serious gamessimulations, and gamification as categories under the umbrella-term ofEnterprise Gamification, the current gap between gamification and game technologies will force game studios and gamification technology companies to converge and integrate their technologies. While there is still a lot of space for new gamification technology entrants, either they have to bring in a new approach of integrated technologies, or the incumbents need to think of working together closer or even merging their organizations.

Conclusion

Summarizing from the forecast above, it’s never been a better moment to get into gamification than now.

Oyunlaştırma (Gamification)

Oyunlaştırma (gamification) , tüm dünyada popülerliği ve bu sayede de buna yönelik ürünlerin giderek çoğaldığı bir kavram veya metod.

Temel olarak, ilgi çekilmek istenen bir konunun, oyun mekaniklerini kullanarak, kullanıcılar tarafından daha fazla ilgi ve etkileşim almasının sağlanmasına oyunlaştırma (gamification) deniyor.

Özellikle son yıllarda, e-öğrenme uygulamalarında, ve tabi ki Facebook gibi sosyal paylaşım platformlarının sayesinde pek çok pazarlama kampanyasında kullanılıyor. Tüm dünyada en bilinenlerden biri “Foursquare” uygulamasıdır. Kullanıcılarına ziyaret ettikleri mekanlarda, “check-in” (giriş) olma şansı veren bu uygulamada, yapılan “check-in” aktivitesi ile kullanıcılara puanlar kazandırıyor. Kullanıcılar, sıklıkla ziyaret ettikleri veya zaman geçirdikleri mekânlarda “mayor” (belediye başkanı) statüsüne ulaşarak, o mekandan hediyeler kazanabiliyorlar.

IBM reveals its top five innovation predictions for the next five years

IBM reveals its top five innovation predictions for the next five years

IBM director of education transformation Chalapathy Neti.

IBM revealed its predictions for five big innovations that will change our lives within five years.

Bernie Meyerson, vice president of innovation at IBM.

Bernie Meyerson, the vice president of innovation at IBM.

The IBM “5 in 5″ is the eighth year in a row that IBM has made predictions about technology, and this year’s prognostications are sure to get people talking. We discussed them with Bernie Meyerson, the vice president of innovation at IBM, and he told us that the goal of the predictions is to better marshal the company’s resources in order to make them come true.

“We try to get a sense of where the world is going because that focuses where we put our efforts,” Meyerson said. “The harder part is nailing down what you want to focus on. Unless you stick your neck out and say this is where the world is going, it’s hard to you can turn around and say you will get there first. These are seminal shifts. We want to be there, enabling them.”

(See our complete interview with Meyerson here).

In a nutshell, IBM says:

  • The classroom will learn you.
  • Buying local will beat online.
  • Doctors will use your DNA to keep you well.
  • A digital guardian will protect you online.
  • The city will help you live in it.

Meyerson said that this year’s ideas are based on the fact that everything will learn. Machines will learn about us, reason, and engage in a much more natural and personalized way. IBM can already figure out your personality by deciphering 200 of your tweets, and its capability to read your wishes will only get better. The innovations are being enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics (the company recently formed its own customer-focused big data analytics lab), and adaptive learning technologies. IBM believes the technologies will be developed with the appropriate safeguards for privacy and security, but each of these predictions raises additional privacy and security issues.

As computers get smarter and more compact, they will be built into more devices that help us do things when we need them done. IBM believes that these breakthroughs in computing will amplify our human abilities. The company came up with the predictions by querying its 220,000 technical people in a bottoms-up fashion and tapping the leadership of its vast research labs in a top-down effort.

Here’s some more detailed description and analysis on the predictions.

In five years, the classroom will learn you.

In five years, the classroom will learn you to help tailor instruction to your individual needs.

The classroom will learn you

Globally, two out of three adults haven’t gotten the equivalent of a high school education. But IBM believes the classrooms of the future will give educators the tools to learn about every student, providing them with a tailored curriculum from kindergarten to high school.

“Your teacher spends time getting to know you every year,” Meyerson said. “What if they already knew everything about how you learn?”

In the next five years, IBM believes teachers will use “longitudinal data” such as test scores, attendance, and student behavior on electronic learning platforms — and not just the results of aptitude tests. Sophisticated analytics delivered over the cloud will help teachers make decisions about which students are at risk, their roadblocks, and the way to help them. IBM is working on a research project with the Gwinnett County Public Schools in Georgia, the 14th largest school district in the U.S. with 170,000 students. The goal is to increase the district’s graduation rate. And after a $10 billion investment in analytics, IBM believes it can harness big data to help students out.

“You’ll be able to pick up problems like dyslexia instantly,” Meyerson said. “If a child has extraordinary abilities, they can be recognized. With 30 kids in a class, a teacher cannot do it themselves. This doesn’t replace them. It allows them to be far more effective. Right now, the experience in a big box store doesn’t resemble this, but it will get there.”

In five years, buying local will beat online as you get online data at your fingertips in the store.

In five years, buying local will beat online as you get online data at your fingertips in the store.

Buying local will beat online

Online sales topped $1 trillion worldwide last year, and many physical retailers have gone out of business as they fail to compete on price with the likes of Amazon. But innovations for physical stores will make buying local turn out better. Retailers will use the immediacy of the store and proximity to customers to create experiences that online-only retail can’t replicate. The innovations will bring the power of the Web right to where the shopper can touch it. Retailers could rely on artificial intelligence akin to IBM’s Watson, which played Jeopardy better than many human competitors. The Web can make sales associates smarter, and augmented reality can deliver more information to the store shelves. With these technologies, stores will be able to anticipate what a shopper most wants and needs.

And they won’t have to wait two days for shipping.

“The store will ask if you would like to see a certain camera and have a salesperson meet you in a certain aisle where it is located,” Meyerson said. “The ability to do this painlessly, without the normal hassle of trying to find help, is very powerful.”

This technology will get so good that online retailers are likely to set up retail showrooms to help their own sales.

“It has been physical against online,” Meyerson said. “But in this case, it is combining them. What that enables you to do is that mom-and-pop stores can offer the same services as the big online retailers. The tech they have to serve you is as good as anything in online shopping. It is an interesting evolution but it is coming.”

In five years, doctors will routinely use your DNA to keep you well.

Doctors will use your DNA to keep you well

Global cancer rates are expected to jump by 75 percent by 2030. IBM wants computers to help doctors understand how a tumor affects a patient down to their DNA. They could then figure out what medications will best work against the cancer, and fulfill it with a personalized cancer treatment plan. The hope is that genomic insights will reduce the time it takes to find a treatment down from weeks to minutes.

“The ability to correlate a person’s DNA against the results of treatment with a certain protocol could be a huge breakthrough,” Meyerson said. It’ll be able to scan your DNA and find out if any magic bullet treatments exist that will address your particular ailment.

IBM recently made a breakthrough with a nanomedicine that it can engineer to latch on to fungal cells in the body and attack them by piercing their cell membranes. The fungi won’t be able to adapt to these kinds of physical attacks easily. That sort of advance, where the attack is tailored against particular kinds of cells, will be more common in the future.

In five years, a digital guardian will protect you online.

A digital guardian will protect you online

We have multiple passwords, identifications, and devices than ever before. But security across them is highly fragmented. In 2012, 12 million people were victims of identity fraud in the U.S. In five years, IBM envisions a digital guardian that will become trained to focus on the people and items it’s entrusted with. This smart guardian will sort through contextual, situational, and historical data to verify a person’s identity on different devices. The guardian can learn about a user and make an inference about behavior that is out of the norm and may be the result of someone stealing that person’s identity. With 360 degrees of data about someone, it will be much harder to steal an identity.

“In this case, you don’t look for the signature of an attack,” Meyerson said. “It looks at your behavior with a device and spots something anomalous. It screams when there is something out of the norm.”

In five years, the city will help you live in it.

The city will help you live in it

IBM says that, by 2030, the towns and cities of the developing world will make up 80 percent of urban humanity and by 2050, seven out of every 10 people will be a city dweller. To deal with that growth, the only way cities can manage is to have automation, where smarter cities can understand in real-time how billions of events occur as computers learn to understand what people need, what they like, what they do, and how they move from place to place.

IBM predicts that cities will digest information freely provided by citizens to place resources where they are needed. Mobile devices and social engagement will help citizens strike up a conversation with their city leaders. Such a concept is already in motion in Brazil, where IBM researchers are working with a crowdsourcing tool that people can use to report accessibility problems, via their mobile phones, to help those with disabilities better navigate urban streets.

Of course, as in the upcoming video game Watch Dogs from Ubisoft, a bad guy could hack into the city and use its monitoring systems in nefarious ways. But Meyerson said, “I’d rather have the city linked. Then I can protect it. You have an agent that looks over the city. If some wise guy wants to make the sewage pumps run backwards, the system will shut that down.”

The advantage of the ultraconnected city is that feedback is instantaneous and the city government can be much more responsive.

2013 Yılının En Önemli Buluşları

Dünya genelindeki laboratuvarlarda yıl içinde geliştirilen 10 buluş, bilim dünyasında yeni heyecanlar yarattı. ODTÜ URAP Başkanı ve ODTÜ Kimya Bölümü Öğretim Üyesi Prof. Dr. Ural Akbulut, Science ve Nature gibi bilimsel kaynaklardan 2013’te dünya bilim dünyasında yaşanan önemli gelişmeleri derledi. Buna göre, 2013’ün en önemli buluşları arasında olanlar; (Ama en önemli buluş, en sondaki Ek’te !!!)

2013 Bilimsel Gelişmeler

İngiliz bilim adamı Peter Higgs’in, 1964’te maddelere kütle kazandıran bir parçacık ve alan olması gerektiğini öne sürmesinin ardından başka fizikçiler de buna paralel bir görüş açıkladı. Uzun yıllardır yürütülen çalışmalar sonrası CERN’de 103 ülkeye mensup araştırmacılardan oluşan 9 bin kişi, 2012’de izine rastladıkları Higgs Bozonunun varlığını 2013’te kanıtladı. CERN’de bu buluşa katkı yapanlar arasında Türkiye’den de bilim insanları vardı. Peter Higgs ve Francois Englert, 2013 Nobel Fizik Ödülü’nü Higgs mekanizmasını önerdikleri için aldı.

Beyne giden damarların tıkanması sonucunda, oksijensiz kalan beyin hücrelerinin kısa sürede ölmeye başladığı ve bu durumun felce neden olduğu biliniyor. Oxford Üniversitesi araştırmacıları, beynin belirli bir bölümündeki hücrelerin ise hamartin adlı bir protein üreterek uzun süre oksijensiz yaşadığını buldu. Profesör A. Buchan, beyinde hafıza ve yön bulmada önemli rolü olan hipokampus adlı bölgedeki hücrelerin, beyin oksijensiz kaldığında hamartin üreterek uzun süre nasıl yaşadığını buldu. Bu hücrelerin ürettiği hamartinin, hücreleri enerji tasarrufuna zorladığı ve hücrelerin de faaliyetlerini durdurduğunu açıkladı. Beyin hücrelerinin, hamartinin etkisiyle protein üretmeyi durdurup var olanları parçalayarak kendileri için kullandıkları anlaşıldı. Buchan, beynin diğer bölümlerinin de kansız kalınca hamartin üretmesini sağlayacak bir yöntem bulunursa felcin neden olduğu ölümlerin önleneceğini vurguladı. Çalışmanın detaylarını veren makale, Nature Medicine dergisinde yayınlandı.

Harvard’da 12 yıldır mikro robot geliştirmek için araştırma yapan Profesör R. J. Wood ve ekibi, robotun tüm parçalarını kendileri üretti. Geliştirilen mikro motor, kanat ve kontrol sistemlerinin teknik detayları Science dergisinde yayınlandı. Wood ve ekibi, arı ve sineklerin kanat çırpışını filme çekip analiz etti ve hafif malzemelerden kanat ve mikro motorlar yaptı. Saniyede 120 kez kanat çırpan mikro robotların boyu 3 santimetre, ağırlığı ise 0,080 gram. Kanatların gözle görülemeyecek bir hızla çırpması için elektrik alanı uygulanınca büzülen, ince seramik çubuklar kullanıldı.

ABD’de Georgia Institute of Technology’de, Profesör Z. L. Wang, akıllı deri üretti. Suni deride 8 bin transistör bulunuyor. Transistörler basınç altında birbirinden bağımsız olarak elektrik üretiyor. Her transistör insanın parmak ucu gibi 10 kilo paskal basıncı hissediyor. Çalışmanın detayları, Science dergisinde yayınlanacak. Bu deriyle robotlar hassas işleri yapabilecek. Elini kaybedenlerin robot elleri, bu deriyle kaplanarak hissetmeleri sağlanacak.

İngiltere’de Imperial College London’da öğretim üyesi olan Macar kimyacı Z. Takats, akıllı Bistüri geliştirdi. Takatz, cerrahların elektrokoter denilen cerrahi bıçağıyla hastanın dokularını keserken kanserli dokularla sağlıklı dokuların çıkardıkları dumanlardaki gazın yapılarının farklı olduğunu buldu. Böylece, cerrahlar, ameliyatta kestikleri dokunun kanserli mi sağlıklı mı olduğunu birkaç saniyede öğrenecek. Analizin patoloji laboratuvarında yapılması ise 30 dakika sürebiliyor. Yakında kullanıma sunulacak cihaz ameliyatlarda kanserli dokuların içeride kalabilmesi ya da istemeden sağlıklı dokuların alınması gibi riskleri ortadan kaldıracak.

ABD’de Northwestern ve Illinois Üniversites’nin ortak çalışmasıyla esneyen ve bükülen pil üretildi. Çok küçük 100 lityum iyon pili esnek tellerle birbirine bağlandı. Esnek bir plastik malzeme üzerine yerleştirilen pil, uzaktan şarj edildiği için kablolu şarj cihazına gerek bulunmuyor. Bükülebilen bilgisayar ve televizyonlar için gerekli olan bu pilin uzaktan şarj edilir olması önemli bir gelişme olarak kabul ediliyor.

  • Demir pası ve Güneş ışığı ile ucuz hidrojen üretimi

Lozan Üniversitesinden Prof. Dr. M. Gratzel ve Technion Teknoloji Enstitüsü profesörlerinden A. Rotschild, ucuz malzemelerle yeni bir teknik geliştirdi. Gratzel, ekibiyle yaptığı çalışmalarla, Güneş pillerinin verimini artırmak için 90’larda geliştirdiği birleşik pillerin pratik kullanımını sağladıl. Çalışma Nature Materials dergisinde yayınlandı. Pilin verimini artırma çalışmaları sürüyor.

Avustralya’da Queensland Üniversitesi ve Avustralya Ulusal Üniversitesinin ortak çalışmasıyla, kuantum mekaniğinin prensibi kullanılarak mikroskop yapıldı. Bu çalışma, Nature Photonics’de yayınlandı. Mikroskop, yaşayan hücrelerin iç yapılarını hücreye zarar vermeden inceleme olanağı verecek. Doç. Dr. W. Bowen, bu çalışma ile kuantum fiziğinin teknolojiye uygulanabildiğini kanıtladıklarını vurguladı. Mikroskopla hücrelerin yaşam döngüsü izlenebilecek.

IBM’in araştırmacıları, karbonmonoksit moleküllerini, Taramalı Tünelleme Mikroskopu ile hareket ettirerek dünyanın en küçük çizgi filmini yaptı. IBM araştırmacısı Prof. Dr. H. Rohrer ve G. Binnig, 1981’de bu mikroskopu geliştirip 1986’da Nobel Fizik Ödülü almıştı. Bu mikroskopla malzemelerin yüzeyi atom düzeyinde görüntüleniyor. IBM araştırmacıları atom düzeyinde araştırma yaparken “Çocuk ve Atomu” adlı bir çizgi film hazırladı. Bakır levha üzerine yerleştirilen karbonmonoksit molekülleriyle çocuk ve topunun şekli oluşturuldu. Mikroskopta, karbonmonoksit molekülündeki oksijen atomu nokta halinde görünüyor. Bu yöntemle 242 farklı resim üretilerek 94 saniyelik çizgi film yapıldı.

ABD’de Massachusetts General Hastanesinde, laboratuvar ortamında rejenere edilen fare böbreği, bir fareye takılınca idrar üretmeye başladı. Dr. Harald Ott, daha önce damarların rejenere edildiği tekniği kullanarak böbreği oluşturdu ve ilk kez tam bir organ rejenere edilmiş oldu. Önce ölü bir farenin böbreği alındı ve içinde özel bir sıvı bulunan yıkama makinesine konuldu. Sıvıdaki enzim ve parçalayıcı maddeler böbrekteki ölü fareye ait hücreleri parçalayarak temizledi. Geriye böbreğin iskeleti olan ve bal peteğini andıran matris kaldı. Sonra yeni doğmuş fareden alınan böbrek hücreleri, özel bir ortamda bu böbrek matrisine aşılanarak böbrek dokuları oluşturuldu. Ek. Türkiye’de Laik Devlet Okullarında okutulan  mecburi din dersleri süresi iki katına çıkarıldı, Fizik, Kimya, Biyoloji  dersleri seçmeli oldu.

Nine Training Alternatives to ‘Correct’ and ‘Incorrect’

Imagine a trainer at the front of the room responding to a participant’s comment by saying nothing more than “You’re right!” or “Incorrect.” Imagine this happening over and over again.

Even though it seems futile, this is one of the most common types of feedback we use in e-learning courses to respond to user actions and answers. In fact, many authoring tools come with these vacuous statements as their default response.

If we’re going after higher-order thinking and maximum learning transfer, then we’re giving up a golden opportunity when we forgo real feedback and instead resort to “correct” and “incorrect.” We need to find ways to close the feedback loop.

You Have Lots of Options

There are many strategies for providing feedback, depending on the context and type of instruction, the objectives of the learning activity, and the audience’s level of expertise. Let’s look at some of your options for providing feedback that is sufficiently informative and moves the learner forward.

1. Real World Consequences

Analog World: Some of the most ideal feedback replicates what happens in the analog world. In simulations and virtual worlds, learners are given a chance to explore, manipulate and practice so they can learn in a safe environment.

In a reasonably accurate simulation, feedback occurs naturally as the result of an action. For example, in a driving simulation, turning a simulated steering wheel to the right appears to turn the car to the right. That’s feedback.

Digital World: Then again, sometimes our simulations replicate the digital world, as in a software simulation. Too often, software simulations are completely canned, so that users can only take one action. If possible, allow for more interactivity so learners can try out the simulated software a bit to better understand how to perform a task. With more flexibility, the feedback simulates the real (digital) world. For example, when the learner clicks a menu item, the menu displays. That’s real world feedback.

We often don’t have the budget for highly robust or complex simulations, so let’s look at some other options.

2. Hints and Cues

During interactions, learners might require several tries in order to clarify a learning point or fine-tune their discriminatory skills. If this is the type of interaction you’re designing, then valuable hints and cues are a good way to assist learners without completely taking away the benefit of making errors.

3. Branching in Stories and Scenarios

When using stories and scenarios in e-learning, it’s natural to take learners down a different path depending on their response. That’s a type of feedback. For example, in an emergency medical training course, the choice of one drug results in stabilizing a patient whereas the choice of another drug results in dangerously high blood-pressure levels.

The difficult part from a design and development perspective is to determine how many paths to design and implement. A simpler approach is to design short forks in the road and then merge the two or three paths back together. It’s one way to avoid a huge design and development effort.

Sensitive Feedback_Elearningguru4. Context-Sensitive Feedback

If you don’t want to build many paths in a story or scenario, simply provide unique feedback specific to each response. In the medical scenario above, an incorrect choice would produce feedback about the danger of the selected drug and request that the learner select another one. Even though context-sensitive feedback is not as compelling as branching, it is more engaging than a facts-only exercise and probably more beneficial to learning.

I think that context-sensitive feedback should be the minimal type of feedback we provide as learning experience designers. This means that we should always provide unique feedback that is specific to each response or action the learner takes. It works in multiple-choice tests as well as games, stories and virtual environments.

5. Incentivized Feedback

Although there is no one type of feedback in learning games, gaining points or completing a challenge is motivating. This type of feedback acts as an incentive to continue playing the game and learning.

As Karl Kapp writes in The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, “A player gets caught up in playing a game because the instant feedback and constant interaction are related to the challenge of the game, which is defined by the rules, which all work within the system to provoke an emotional reaction and, finally, result in a quantifiable outcome within an abstract version of a larger system.”

6. Peer or Social Feedback

In a training context, you can use collaborative and social media tools to give and receive peer feedback from colleagues. For example, if you were designing a course for new coaches, you could set up a Facebook Group page for discussion. Then request that participants write about how they would handle a specific coaching situation.

The participants would comment on how each coach managed the fictitious problem and everyone would learn in the process. The added bonus here is that the act of critiquing and commenting can help reviewers themselves, according to one study where undergraduate students critiqued each others writing. (Cho and Cho, 2011)

See Social Media for Trainers by Jane Bozarth for more ways to use social media for learning.

7. Explanatory Feedback

You can apply explanatory feedback to any learning experience in which errors are caused by misconceptions or a lack of knowledge. If your design has frequent opportunities for learners to respond, then you can catch and remediate misconceptions as the learner is constructing meaning.

In particular, explanatory feedback, rather than corrective feedback, is a good choice for discovery learning as it helps learners build accurate mental models. In addition, there is evidence that explanatory feedback reduces cognitive load. (Moreno, 2004)

8. Self-Directed Feedback

Motivated or mature learners can benefit from self-directed feedback. As the learning designer, you can present thoughtful questions that encourage learner reflection, self-evaluation and self-assessment.

For example, after requesting that learners write a short essay response to a question, provide an ideal response or specific criteria as feedback. Then let learners evaluate their own essay and compare it to the ideal. There are many types of self-evaluation questions that can encourage higher-order thinking and reflection.

9. Worked Examples as Feedback

Worked-out examples are step-by-step demonstrations of how to solve a problem. They are thought to be effective with learners who have limited prerequisite knowledge because these examples reduce cognitive load. (Sweller, et al, 1998)

If the focus of your instruction is problem solving, then you can provide worked-out examples for learners to study and then again as feedback after they solve a problem. Note that worked examples are not effective for learners who are skilled at a task as it interferes with their ability to solve problems like an expert.

How to Create a Training Video

The first-ever moving picture, shot in 1878, was intended to answer a pretty simple-sounding question: How do horses move their legs when they run? Before the advent of the moving picture, it wasn’t known. But string several frames together in quick succession, and voila! The answer becomes clear.

Fast-forward a hundred and thirty-something years later, and our video technology has advanced so far that you could now record a horse running in three dimensions on a camera small enough to put in your back pocket. But an important lesson from that first running horse “movie” remains: when it comes to answering some straightforward questions, a 10-second tutorial video sometimes says more than an entire novel could.

That’s important to keep in mind if you’re thinking about including video tutorials as part of an e-learning oronline training program. And with the proliferation of video-editing software, video-sharing sites like Vimeo and YouTube, and consumer-priced, high-quality digital cameras, it’s now easier than ever to include video in your presentations. Used properly, a video can give a training program a dynamic new element that helps learners get the most out of their training material.

Video EditingWhy video?

Before you start recording video tutorials, it’s important to consider what sorts of problems are best resolved through video. For instance, short videos are especially good for showing or demonstrating actions or behaviors that cannot be adequately represented in writing (like the horse running). That’s why video’s great for showing how to perform a physical task, or for demonstrating soft-skill training in action, like a sales technique.

On the other hand, there are times when video may not make as much sense. For training materials you expect people to have to come back to many times, you might be wise to leave those in writing (or, if you prefer, offer both). Further, video is a one-way medium, so it works well in instances where the learner isn’t expected to participate directly (lectures, how-to’s, etc.)

Once you’ve determined that video makes sense for your training need, it’s time to start making a movie.

First things first

It’s important to remember that simplicity is best with training videos — you’re not making Transformers IV here. That said, a few preparations go a long way. Writing out a script in advance (and practicing it a few times) will make the narration much smoother. You can also storyboard out the shots you want to get. If you’re recording sound, make sure you’re using a decent microphone — the one on your camera (or phone, if you’re using that) just isn’t going to sound very good.

And … action!

few tips on shooting video:

  • For stationary shots, use a tripod, or at least rest the camera on something stable. Nothing’s worse than shaky camerawork.
  • Keep shots brief – eight or 10 seconds at the max, unless there’s a good reason for a longer take.
  • Do multiple takes of some shots. They’ll almost definitely get better, and getting a clean take can mean less editing work later on.
  • Skip long introductions, and lead with the most important information. One of the most common complaints about tutorial videos is that they’re too long, so the faster you can get to the relevant information, the better. Add context and further information later on.

Editing

People don’t expect snazzy special effects in training videos, so don’t waste time on fancy transitions or graphics. That said, there are a few things you can do post-production to help the video along. But remember — keep things brief. Different sources come up with different numbers on this, but typically try to keep videos to under three minutes. Some people even suggest breaking those down into 30-second or 1-minute videos that are searchable through a table of contents.

While complicated graphics and text-heavy screens are a no-go, the occasional illustration can sometimes work wonders. Studies show even simple doodles can get a lot of information across, and can even provide a little comic relief. If you do have a text screen, be sure to allow people enough time to read it — typically give an extra 30 percent of the time it took you to read it.

Finally, if you’re going to use narration, be sure you’ve got a script ready. That said, don’t sound too stiff — you want to go slowly enough that people can understand you, but quickly enough to sound natural. Adding an option for closed captioning may also make sense if some of your learners don’t speak English as a first language.

Ultimately, a the thing to remember is that training videos should be brief and concise, simple and straightforward, and should get relevant information across in an easy-to-understand method. As long as you accomplish that, your training videos will add a great new element to your training lessons.

LMS and LCMS – A Comparison Between Definitions

This article is taken from Mindflash

LMS&LCMS What is the DifferenceMany organizations looking to add more e-learning elements to their company training programs get stuck choosing between two similar-sounding, but ultimately different, systems: Learning Management Systems (LMS) and Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS). There are a number of similarities between the two, and recently many software packages have blurred the differences between them. However, there are a few key differences that organizations should keep in mind when looking for an online training system.

LMS: A platform for managing people

An LMS provides the simplest platform for managing the experience of students or trainees as they interact withe-learning content. One of the assumptions about an LMS, which will become clearer in the explanation of an LCMS, is that the content has already been created, and that it’s in the right format to be compatible with these systems. Beyond that, most LMS packages have several similarities in common:

  • An emphasis on registering participants, tracking their activity, and gauging their progress through online coursework.
  • Interaction with existing Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS), to track the pool of those eligible for participation, and for reporting back outcomes.
  • Increasing the use of talent management functionality, which sometimes overlaps with functions being performed by HRIS.
  • In some cases, tools for analytics and performance management are included.

LCMS: The platform for managing content creation

An LCMS provides a more complex platform meant for developing content used in e-learning programs. Many LCMS packages available on the market also contain tools that resemble those used in an LMS, and most assume that an LMS is already in place. The emphasis in an LCMS is the ability for developers to create new material. Most content-management systems have several aspects in common:

  • A focus on creating, developing, and managing content for online courses, with far less emphasis placed on managing the experience of learners.
  • A multi-user environment that allows several developers to interact and exchange tools.
  • A learning object repository containing learning materials, which are commonly used components that are archived so as to be searchable and adaptable to any online course.

Organizations that have all their existing materials in commonly used business software formats – like Microsoft Office products – will find that few LMS platforms allow for them to simply be imported and modified. Those materials need to be created from scratch, and to do that you will need an LCMS.

The Unique Case of Managing Education Environments

A number of LMS platforms serve the education market, including some of the most well known, such asBlackboard. There are a few key differences that make education packages unique, and that may also obscure the boundary between LMS and LCMS.

  • An assumption that a campus will already have a number of IT environments for managing registration and enrollment, so the emphasis is on compatibility with those systems.
  • A number of content-authoring and creation tools that resemble those found in what are otherwise described as LCMS platforms.
  • An emphasis on semester-long interaction with a teacher, leading to more options for communication such as email, discussion rooms, wikis, or sometimes blogs.

Which One Do You Need?

Despite the nuances and complexities of different packages, a few simple generalizations can help organizations make a choice when choosing between an LMS and an LCMS.

  • The C stands for “create.” The C in LCMS actually stands for “content,” but in reality LMS and LCMS are both concerned with content. But if you need to create it, then go with an LCMS.
  • An LMS is focused on managing how individuals participate in e-learning programs; an LCMS is concerned with how content for e-learning is created.
  • An organization that already employs its own trainers and coaches should consider an LCMS that will allow these individuals to convert their existing knowledge into training materials that make sense for them; organizations content to purchase “off the shelf” components should choose an LMS.

Because of inconsistencies in the way different platforms are made and marketed, be sure to pay close attention to the details of any new product you select. Over time, these two choices will continue to evolve to meet changing demand for e-learning.
