Using technology to support project-based learning

How can we reduce plastic in our oceans? In today’s classrooms, teachers use project-based learning (or PBL) so that students can come up with potential solutions to real-world problems like this. With PBL, students identify the problem, research a solution and support it with evidence—all while learning valuable skills they’ll use long after graduation. Brainstorming these dynamic solutions can be an exciting and creative challenge for young minds. Technology can help motivate and spark imagina...

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: How Much Time Does It Take to Create eLearning?

One of the more common questions that I get from new eLearning developers is how much time does it take to produce published content. The answer depends upon a couple of factors. For instance, which eLearning tool are you going to use? Is it Adobe Captivate? How about TechSmith's Camtasia? Or maybe you're going to use Articulate Storyline?   Here's another factor: how many minutes of eLearning playtime are you looking to produce? Are you creating a 30-minute course? 60 minutes?...

Noise-cancelling pillow for bedmates of people who snore

Northern Illinois University researchers have designed a noise-cancelling pillow for people who sleep near loud snorers. It works using the same principle as noise-cancelling headphones but with an adaptive algorithm that changes with the snore. Noise-cancelling headboards have been available for some time, but according to electrical engineering professor Lichuan Liu who led this new research, they're bulky and limited in their efficacy because the "quiet zone" isn't right near the sleeper's e...

Understanding Customer Churn and How to Prevent it

Philip Kotler is one of the best marketing minds the world has ever seen. In one of his books, Kotler had suggested that the average company looses anywhere between 10 to 30 percent of customers each year. Although a number of studies disagree  with this figure, there is a consensus here that customer churn, at least some of it, is unavoidable. There are several reasons why a customer chooses to stop doing business with you. Some of it is internal – for example, the customer may no lo...
