Towards Maturity’s own Laura Overton is one of a number of e-learning experts to have contributed to a must-read book on e-learning, called The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual.

About the book

Technology has revolutionised every aspect of our lives and how we learn is no exception. The trouble is; the range of e-learning technologies and the options available can seem bewildering. Even those who are highly experienced in one aspect of elearning will lack knowledge in some other areas!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could access the hard-won knowledge, practical guidance and helpful tips of world-leading experts in these fields?

Edited by Rob Hubbard and featuring chapters written by global elearning experts: Clive Shepherd, Laura Overton, Jane Bozarth, Lars Hyland, Rob Hubbard, Julie Wedgwood, Jane Hart, Colin Steed, Clark Quinn, Ben Betts and Charles Jennings – this book is a practical guide to all the key topics in e-learning, including:

  • Getting the business on board
  • Building it yourself
  • Learning management
  • Blended, social
  • Informal
  • Mobile and game-based learning
  • Facilitating online learning
  • Making the most of memory and more

What are people saying?

The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual’s list of 12 contributory authors reads like a who’s who of movers and shakers in the field from both sides of the Atlantic, and this means it is compulsive and compulsory reading. It contains many compelling arguments; some contradictory perspectives; and lots and lots of good, practical ideas. It packs a lot into 232 pages. This book belongs on your shelf (iPad). You will come back to it again and again.” Nigel Paine MD, nigelpaine.com

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

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. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
