The place was as familiar to him as his favorite story or coloring book.
Working in software development, be it for the desktop, web, mobile or any combination of the three, one often feels like he is in a unique line of work made possible by the 20th century technology, without obvious parallels to other professions.

E-learning, and if you follow this blog you probably already know that, has many advantages over traditional classroom based learning. Those advantages range from reduced operation costs and the ability to address huge audiences, to quantifiable insights on students’ progress and quick deployment.

Being engaged in, rather than merely attending, our courses, multiplies our understanding of the material, our memory, and, as a result, our knowledge acquisition.
When, then, are some good guidelines regarding engaging learners in your courses? Well, that’s what we’re here to find out. Continue reading
