Knowledge Anywhere :: Could Cognitive Computing be the Next Big Thing for Corporate Learning? Mesmerized by Weinbaum’s premature concept of virtual reality, scientists and cinematographers alike created an array of prototypes aimed to transform the human sensory experience by leveraging the power of technology to simulate an alternate, fictitious environment. Though virtual reality has been a prevalent concept in the world of gaming and entertainment from the genesis of its development, it has gained traction as an educational tool for professional development, especially as it pertains to employee training. Simulating life-like situations, especially those that could not be safely replicated, are just one of the many benefits of virtual reality training. Leveraging the power of virtual reality, organizations can regularly expose employees to real-world circumstances and watch their responses, test their ability to mitigate problems and work towards a solution as an individual or within a group, and condition employee responses to fit an optimal response for someone in that position.
Virtual Reality has an application and use case for any industry, though it may become a higher priority in the future for organizations that operate in a climate that is a) high risk, b) dependent on highly complicated machines or technology, or c) relies heavily on interpersonal aptitudes, situational awareness, or advanced psychomotor skills. Talent Management is the combined organizational effort to attract, develop, and retain employees. Keeping employees engaged and motivated to remain with the organization long-term is the ultimate goal of talent management that is achieved through a combination of activities executed by both the HR function and management. Talent acquisition, typically under the HR wheelhouse, is the gateway to talent management where initial employees are recruited and hired. Initial employee education geared around fundamental organizational principles, job role requirements, and manager expectations is pivotal to early employee engagement and satisfaction. All employees value the opportunity to refine and develop skills related to their position. Often viewed as an element of a successful training program, coaching is an effective way to teach, motivate and inspire employees to help the organization meet its strategic goals and objectives. Employees care as much as their managers do about their performance, and when they’re in the dark they’re quick to feel unappreciated and undervalued—leading them to look elsewhere for employment. Tip: Give employees public recognition when they’ve done a good job, don’t wait until their annual review to give them kudos in private. Tip: Be transparent with your top talent by letting them know that you see potential in them to assume a new role down the line.
For just a moment I’d like you to think about how many username and password combinations you have for all the software programs, applications, and online accounts you access on a regular basis. The good news is, there is a solution that allows you to use the same login credentials across multiple software programs, applications or online accounts.
Single Sign-On (SSO) is a user authentication process that leverages a central authentication service to minimize the required use of multiple login combinations. Using a central authentication service (Identity Provider), like Microsoft Active Directory, a user creates a unique login combination consisting of a username and a password.
This is made possible with Single Sign-On and occurs as a result of the connection forged between the Identity Provider (Microsoft Active Directory) and the Service Provider (Knowledge Anywhere’s LMS), where the Service Provider trusts the Identity Provider to provide the unique user credentials. The main benefit of Single Sign-On is the ability for users within a network to access independent and related software programs without having to provide duplicate login credentials. Our LMS comes with a Single Sign-On API, making it possible to integrate easily with your central authentication service. With the four-year (or many times five-year) sticker price of college education in the $150,000-$300,000 range student debt is becoming a serious hurdle for many considering a higher education pursuit, simply because so many cannot afford to take on the debt, much less routinely come up with the funds to stay enrolled at an institution. Little of this has to do with being able to wave a piece of paper in the form of a diploma in front of an employer, like a ticket, and say “Look, I’m qualified.
With Ledger, every single learning activity over the course of a person’s lifetime is tracked in learning units called Edublocks.
For many who can’t get past the sticker shock of what a college education costs, this could be a way to get on more equal footing with individuals who do have the means to obtain a college degree. If you’ve ever designed an eLearning course, you probably realize how important the visuals are for attracting learners’ attention and helping them to engage with the learning material. When designing your course, you need to remember that although very important - visual design should never steal the spotlight.
Minimalism is a classic principle which can easily take your visual design to the next level. Every detail counts, so make sure you’re not overdoing it by reducing the amount of elements on a page. If sections of your learning material are full of details and each one is important, it’s worth it to maintain your minimalist attitude and use interactive graphics to contain all that knowledge in one place and avoid cluttering it. Clicking on an image, learners will be able to access more detailed information about that area, fully controlling the learning and maintaining their own pace.
Another minimalist-driven piece of advice: Never try to fit all your section content into one page. Add small mood lifters, pictures with funny captions, some insider jokes or special interaction design (for instance, when loading new course materials you can display a funny message like “Run, hamsters, run!”). One of the most powerful tools visuals give you is the possibility to create a clear visual hierarchy.
Learners will be reading from left to right, so place top priority content on the left-hand side of the screen. Even if you think that nobody pays any attention to fonts and colors, the truth is that these aspects of your design matter. Use these ten visual design tricks to create compelling learning material which not only provides an excellent learner experience but also inspires students to expand their knowledge in ways inaccessible to traditional learning practice.

Weinbaum crafted an imaginative story where a pair of goggles transported a wearer into an alternate form of reality.
By applying the same technology used to deliver immersive user entertainment, organizations of all types can simulate real-world situations in a controlled and interactive environment—eliminating the dangers of risky settings where one incorrect action could have a disastrous outcome.
The real value behind virtual reality technology lies in its ability to mimic the natural human learning process, wherein learning often occurs through experience.
This form of training affords employees the opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them through the process of trial and error, or by watching their peers solve the same problem in a more effective way.
In all of these climates, repetitive, real-world conditioning is imperative to success within an individual position or group activity.
With virtual reality training, high-pressure situations or medical emergencies can be simulated where doctors and surgeons must act quickly to aid patients with severe conditions.
Despite what many nay-sayers believe, virtual reality is here to stay, and it’s going to transform the way we learn, work, and grow.
Effective talent management is manifested in an organization’s ability to obtain and retain a range of individuals with different abilities and skill sets that are paramount to the innovation, development, promotion and sale of an organization’s products or services to the market. Beyond the initial attainment of talent, there are five key activities facilitated by an employee’s manager that help keep employee interest in working for an organization intact. When employees have a clear understanding of the organization, what their role encompasses, and what goals they are working toward to help the company be successful, they acclimate to their jobs faster and have a higher sense of ownership over their performance. Training that is informative, engaging and easily accessible can help employees cultivate the knowledge required to help them become great at their jobs.
Not only does ongoing training appease employee desire for improved efficiency and an understanding for existing responsibilities, but it satisfies a deeper desire for career advancement that can be achieved through the development of critical skills within an employee’s department. Typically, coaching is a 1:1 phenomenon where knowledge is transferred from a senior employee (manager) to less experienced employee. Regular performance evaluations are essential to helping employees understand responsibilities, workload priorities, and how their contributions impact the organization’s success. In doing this, managers can highlight the tactics of high performing employees that can be emulated by others, as well as keep the employee or team that has been recognized satisfied and committed to continued excellence. If employees see a future in the organization and are backed by a manager committed to furthering their success they will be much less likely to jump ship and look for a new job.
To keep up with market demands, technological innovations, and the changing industry landscape, an organization must maintain a range of individuals who are gifted in different skillsets to sustain or obtain a competitive advantage.
It probably won’t surprise you that like me; you’re probably keeping track of over 30 accounts (though the average person has at least 90 online accounts). It’s called Single Sign-On, and it can help your LMS users eliminate the need to remember multiple username and password combinations.
It allows users to enter one username and password for all independent and related software systems—eliminating the need to remember separate login credentials for each program. As a result, an organization can benefit from reduced IT support for lost passwords and username combinations, less valuable employee time spent re-entering passwords and trying multiple login combinations, and improved user identity management. We also provide Single Sign-On API support upon request if your IT team doesn’t have the bandwidth.
While a few decades ago it was reasonable for individuals without a college degree to be able to start small in the corporate world and work their way up, it is much harder to do so today.
I’ve got a four-, six-, or eight-year education to prove it.” More of it has to do with the fact that we measure preparedness and skill aptitude first by proof of preparation through study and then by proof of understanding through experience. For those who already have a college degree, or can get one, this could be beneficial as a supplementary resume that proves skills and aptitudes that surpass initial role requirements. Visual design not only impacts the course’s usability but also brings plenty of learning benefits to its users. That’s why every single visual element of your design needs to be perfectly coordinated with other elements, accurately reflecting the general theme and feel of the eLearning course. Remember that color is itself a form of information and its overuse is bound to decrease the learning performance. Sometimes learners need to learn lots of key details without losing sight of the greater whole, so clickable hotspots on your imagery can be your best solution. Instead, use white space to divide learning materials into digestible bits and keep your paragraphs short so learners are motivated to go through them.
You don’t want to end up with a stack of photos which add no value to the learning experience or get learners closer to the learning objectives.
When designing your course materials, use visuals to highlight specific information and guide learners through the various steps of the learning process. Make sure to balance your page and distribute content in ways which suggest different degrees of importance.
Our eyes are built to unconsciously notice images and our brains can process them in record time. Founded in 1959 as the Palo Alto-Stanford Hospital Center, Stanford Hospital today has 613 licensed beds, about 1,500 faculty physicians and more than 1,000 interns and residents. Scheduled to open to patients in early 2018, the 824,000-square-foot building will include a larger Level I trauma center and an emergency department that is more than twice the size of the current one. News & World Report ranked the hospital nationally in 10 pediatric specialties for 2015-16, which earned Lurie Children's a spot on the publication's children's hospital Honor Roll. Merlino served as chief experience officer and associate chief of staff at the Cleveland Clinic prior to joining Press Ganey. Baker, MD, executive vice president of healthcare quality evaluation for the Joint Commission, has released a statement to clear up any misunderstandings people may have regarding the organization's standards for pain management. Terry McAuliffe's latest attempt to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act was unsuccessful, according to a Richmond Times-Dispatch report. Census Bureau has released the results of the latest American Community Survey, including five year's worth of statistics on the social and economic characteristics of even the smallest communities in the nation. Inside the world within the goggles, the wearer’s senses would come alive as he was swept away into a story as the main character with the ability to interact with other characters in the story the same way he could interact with real people in real life.
This gives employees the most immersive experience possible, which in turn helps them to retain and use what they’ve learned when it counts. Physicians and surgeons can also practice new treatment methods or procedures in a realistic environment without any patient implications, and lab technicians or other healthcare professionals can practice using advanced medical machinery without incurring the cost of using the actual machines by leveraging the power of virtual reality.
When an organization is successful at managing its talent, the organization often meets the strategic goals and objectives essential to achieving a competitive advantage.
When it comes to training, the method of delivery, the quality of the training content, and the frequency it is delivered are important aspects that management should prioritize when developing a talent management strategy. It also helps management raise awareness of the pace of change as the market grows and matures—ensuring that every employee is positioned to help the organization be successful now, and in the future as new technologies emerge.


Coaching can help management draw out roadblocks, frustrations, and needs from employees—helping managers approach employees with workable solutions.
High performers are motivated to succeed in existing roles when the opportunity for advancement is within grasp. Thus, a sustained approach to managing talented employees is central to the survival of the business.
The user data stored by the Identity Provider can be leveraged to access other systems when a connection is forged between that Identity Provider and a Service Provider, like Knowledge Anywhere’s LMS.
I had a professor who put it this way, “A college education has become mandatory in today’s society, but having a college degree won’t make you successful. But, what if qualifying someone at the start of their career for a particular position wasn’t contingent upon a degree, but rather a collection of records that could prove that knowledge mastery had occurred. Anything from reading a book, writing an article, or completing a project at work qualifies as viable, earned learning unit that anyone can earn. For recruiters, Ledger could help organizations more accurately align incoming employee interests and capabilities with job roles to discern the best fit.
The right visual design can build a hierarchy of information, helping learners in knowledge comprehension and retention.
The best visual designs are so seamlessly integrated with the course topics that users barely notice them – still, they play a key role in directing learners’ focus in appropriate directions.
It’s not a good idea to force learners to decipher the meaning of visuals which aren’t exactly relevant to the course’s topic or are just there for decorative reasons.
Interactive graphics are great for presenting lots of detail without overwhelming learners. Introducing many new concepts at once is always a bad idea, no matter what type of learning materials you create.
When people want to learn how to make or fix something, they like to follow a physical procedure instead of reading a paragraph of text. However, remember that simplicity and moderation are again your best friends – after all, you don’t want to turn your eLearning course into a big, digital joke. Examine every single image and check whether it reflects your brand and is relevant to the learning process.
For instance, place a key piece of data on the left side and balance it with a compelling image on the right side.
He has written a book on how to improve the patient experience and has been published in a number of academic journals.
In that role, he leads the nation's efforts to control health threats from infectious diseases. Lois Capps, RN, of California have introduced legislation pushing to support comprehensive healthcare and mental health services to students at school-based health centers, or SBHCs, across the country. Using TMO ALPs Programs has received the.A  The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. Immensely powerful for healthcare organizations, virtual reality training has the potential to dramatically improve the accuracy of a multitude of medical processes and procedures. Probably, considering that many times our login credentials are the last thing on our mind when we seek to enter an application or account.
When this connection is established (usually through an API), a user only has to enter their login credentials once when they login to the network.
Essentially, it is the ticket that gets you into the stadium, but once you’re inside, it’s up to you to make the right choices that will lead you to where you want to be at the end of the day.” If what my professor said is right, then anyone without a college degree will find it much harder to qualify or even get an interview for the job they really want. Amy Scott, a Marketplace education correspondent, discusses a digital education concept called Ledger that does just that. This learning concept is based on the technology behind digital currencies like bitcoin’s digital ledger called the blockchain, and would allow for a new education model where anyone can earn the credentials required for certain jobs, even without proof of a college degree.
And, for corporations, Ledger could help show the lifetime learning potential of employees and provide value insight as to which employees are poised for future advancement and leadership opportunities. Visually break the text with bullet points and put your takeaway messages in bold or underline them.
Good visual design should ooze positivity and help to create a learning experience which is full of energy and enthusiasm. It can be a key idea or concept, a question you want to underline or any other type of essential information. The design of your page should clarify any doubts learners might have about the hierarchy of course information.
Remember not to overuse such visual features, or you risk cluttering the space and confusing learners. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago has 288 beds, handled 10,997 admissions and hosted 4,926 inpatient and 13,342 outpatient surgeries in the last year reported. To do this, management must keep a keen eye out for exemplary performers and make efforts to ensure they are set for success when a new position within the company becomes available. Once their identity has been authorized by the Identity Provider and the user proceeds to navigate to the individual software program or application (like the LMS) they will be automatically logged in. Make sure learners can control the video – viewing and reviewing it, they can learn at their own pace. Make sure this type of information stands out visually from the rest of the content or imagery. Emphasize only certain points of your material – you don’t want learners to have trouble telling which pieces of information are essential to the topic of your course.
In fiscal year 2014, clinicians at Lurie Children's cared for more children than any other pediatric hospital system in Illinois. Frieden made a name for himself in tuberculosis control with the New York City Health Department. It’s also a good idea to use video to support the learning of abstract concepts and processes. Stanford Hospital has received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and Healthgrades gave the hospital its Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence in 2015 and 2016. Lurie Children's was the first pediatric hospital in the country to earn Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, but that's not its only first. The skills needed for good leadership are present in all of us, but not all of us are natural leaders.
When it was founded in 1882 as Maurice Porter Memorial Hospital, it was the first hospital in Chicago dedicated solely to the treatment of children. Frieden led a program that rapidly reduced TB, including cases of multidrug-resistant TB, by 80 percent.
Our ALPs series is designed to identify, embrace and and strengthen our ALPs participants leadership abilities. The hospital expanded and was renamed Children's Memorial Hospital in 1904, and remained as such until 2012. That year, the hospital moved from Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood to a newly built 23-story building in Streeterville, thanks to a $100 million donation from Ann Lurie.
Frieden continues to be a vocal public figure as the CDC addresses the potential threat of the Zika virus to U.S. TMO Adventures provide an opportunity to realize a group's governing principles, values, ethics and practice core competencies in a safe and supportive environment.
