Does learning analytics feel good?

This autumn has been a season of data analytics work. I realise that we are not all fans of data analysis, but I have found this to be cause for some modest celebration.

We’re all digital now, yes?

So, one is visiting Learning Live over the coming two days. What is always an energising and interesting event will be layered with additional anticipation as we proceed through our COVID world.

Stakeholders need transforming as much as digital does

I discovered this partly drafted post whilst looking for something today. It was started in late 2017. At that time digital transformation was the priority for organisations and was a source of great anxiety in the learning world (this does have a familiar ring to it). What with the pandemic and all, I think the… Continue reading Stakeholders need transforming as much as digital does

What might a software generated pop star have to do with a professional services firm? The record label exec, in the first story, does a… Continue reading Virtual or real talent? Does it matter?

Content still rules digital learning – $1.5bn worth of it.

An unfolding consequence of COVID and our shift in working patterns is the amount of investment in various businesses aimed at supporting digital learning. Or rather, businesses aimed at supporting the delivery of what we tend to call learning – elearning content. There is plenty of growth out there if private equity fund investors are… Continue reading Content still rules digital learning – $1.5bn worth of it.
