Making E-learning work


When I ask people in companies how they like e-learning, they usually say it is a rather boring page turning exercise that really doesn’t excite them at all, but just needs to get done to keep the boss happy…

What are your experiences with E-learning?


Well I am a firm believer in E-learning, when it is done the right way it can be a fantastic tool to learn new things.
  • I believe E-learning should be short and to the point.
  • I believe it should be very interactive, meaning that you actually have to pay attention 😉
  • I believe e-learning should be fun to do.
  • I believe that you should learn something from e-learning, meaning that by the end of the course you actually would remember what you learned 😉

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic, so please click below and type your comments!

Thanks!

Intent in Coaching and E-learning


Today we discussed Intent. What is Intent?

Intent is showing great determination to do something, with full attention, or effort concentrated or focused on one thing. You could also see it as the belief that is driving our thoughts, words and actions.

Discovering your Intent can be a very interesting journey. Ask yourself:

What is the reason why I am doing this?

Well that’s the question I asked myself today in relation to why I want to create E-learning: I discovered I want to train lots of people using E-learning, create a more customer focused approach and create more positive experiences for people.

The second question to ask yourself is:

What do I believe about myself in relation to this situation?

So I answered myself that I am a great facilitator, I can reach people with my message, I am good at helping people learn, I have a great way of making e-learning work, so that it is good, accessible and useful.

The third question would be:

What stopped you from achieving your intent?

Well I answered, time, fear of the unknown, unable to imagine it actually working and I can’t really seem to imagine the path from where I am now to where I would like to be.

Now today in my coaching class with Nick Bosk, a great ICA coach and teacher, we imagined traveling to the future and meeting our future self there, so we could ask some questions. I asked my future self what am I to do next? and I said: You are on the right track, relax, trust in yourself, keep going the way you are going and you will get there. Start small and don’t be too hard on yourself.

This was an extremely insightful experience, which I just had to share with you.

Intent is a very powerful tool, that can really drive you, and the powerful thing is, you can create any intent you want!

E-Learning along the curve: adapting to knowledge workers learning needs


E-Learning along the curve: adapting to knowledge workers learning needs.

An interesting article for my Coaching Research paper!

Thanks Michael!

Wow that was a long break ….


This week I picked up the coaching books again after quite a long break! Last year 2009 in February I started this coaching course at ICA and now February 2010 I have started taking classes again and am really excited about picking this all up!
and of course starting my own business. I am just looking at what it will look like, how it will work, and how to combine E-learning and Coaching into Rebelou, so that I have one company with a similar audience that can make use of the E-learning courses on offer as well as take one on one coaching with me. So I did a brainstorm today and it is starting to take some shape. Also did a class today on the “research paper” and why not take as a topic Coaching and E-learning what’s the ideal blend?
For now that will be my topic and I am going to chew on it a little more and let you know how it goes… now I am off to prepare for my 6th class this week and this year! Isn’t it amazing!
Woohooo I am very happy.

I also got a really nice e-mail from my coach Isabelle today, she was in the same research class with me this morning and she was very enthusiastic about my research paper and sent me some interesting links to an e-learning course that she took.

I am thinking of putting together a survey for all people that have taken e-learning on coaching, to what it’s effectiveness is, so let’s see what comes out!

See ya!
