Their contributions have included

  • Benchmark studies, allowing an additional 600 organisations to get involved in benchmarking to improve performance
  • The Impact study illustrating impact of learning technologies at work
  • 33 Reasons why e-learning projects fail – a lesson for us all!
  • Video podcasts to share good practices more widely
  • Support of Sector Skills Councils and National Skills Academies through workshops and seminars to help embed learning technologies.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning.
