Online courses trim billions in personnel training
CNBC
Massive online open courses are supposed to change the face of higher education. Early success, though, has been easier to find among corporations. A University of Pennsylvania survey released late last year found that few students made it past the first online lecture. That's been a constant criticism of MOOCs from educators: There's a lack of proof that they work as well as traditional classroom methods. San Jose State University suspended a program it had initiated with MOOC provider Udacity after poor early results.

Do you leverage your own informal learning?
Kirkpatrick Partners
Wendy Kirkpatrick, a contributor for Kirkpatrick Partner, writes: "In training, we certainly talk a lot about informal learning. But as training professionals, are we leveraging the power of it for ourselves? When I was a training manager about a decade ago, I joined my local ASTD chapter with the goal of networking with other training professionals. I didn't have any particularly high expectations for the value, but was really struck by how a few hours and little investment really benefited me."

Engaging introverts and extroverts
Life Cycle Engineering
Has this ever happened to you? You're on a plane, sitting between two strangers. The man on your left has his nose buried in a book. He barely says hello. On your right is a woman who can't seem to sit still. She fidgets and can't relax. Finally, almost in desperation, she strikes up a conversation with someone — anyone. If it happens to be you, you could be chatting for hours.

What do we know about professional development?
Brookings
Do we know how to improve teaching? I don't mean tinkering around the edges — making a particular history lesson better or getting an individual teacher to alter his or her instructional strategies — but a lasting, substantive change, one that reshapes the profession. Do we know how to transform bad teachers into adequate teachers? Can we take teachers who are merely adequate and make them good — even outstanding?

How do I show training impact?
Workforce
Rick Galbreath, a contributor for Workforce, writes: "Many organizations don't see how training connects to tangible business improvements, even when it does. Attendance at training programs is often seen as a perquisite, similar to a day off with pay, rather than as a means of developing value-adding new skills and abilities. I call this the 'invisible flower' syndrome. We plant the seed and hope it flourishes, but even if it does, the result often goes unnoticed. The real problem here is that we really don't know what we are looking for out of most training experiences. Here's a simple way to fix training."

10 big reasons for the rise of corporate MOOCs
Training Zone
Donald Clark, a contributor for Training Zone, writes: "Last week I delivered a presentation on MOOCs to corporate L&D people at Learning Technologies 2014 and was amazed to find that a majority of the packed room had taken a MOOC and, at the end, those who hadn't certainly wanted to try one. Seems odd — a corporate MOOC, if only for the primary problem of them being 'open.' Corporate training is often built as closed, bespoke product, as companies want competitive edge. What's the point of using stuff that everyone can use? We want to be better. For this reason, much corporate online learning will remain in-house and behind closed doors and this will continue."

Introduction to high impact learning
Life Cycle Institute
To invest their limited training dollars wisely, organizations need to abandon event-based thinking and adapt to performance-based thinking. High impact learning programs help organizations take that step by encouraging leadership involvement and applying retention strategies that ensure learning is not just an event but a true process that changes behavior and performance.
