Moving Online Learning Forward






Online learning - and our collective thoughts about it -  has evolved dramatically in the last year. Creating and sharing engaging content online has been a difficulty experienced everywhere. The content hasn't changed, but our difficulty in engaging with it in an effective way online has certainly posed its fair share of challenges.

"Good content is the first step. But the next step involves those conversations and interactions you have with others to illuminate the content and help you remember it.” - June Ahn, Ph.D

In the article Adapting to the (Not So) New Age of Computer Learning Kayt Sukel shares some of these difficulties and how to engage learning in a virtual environment. 

“Unfortunately, online instruction isn’t as simple as throwing a textbook online—and, in my opinion, online education platforms have focused too much on just putting content up online,” - June Ahn, Ph.D

Likewise, feedback is integral to an effective learning environment. In another excellent blog post, Danielle Leboff speaks to the critical, missing piece of insight - where learners share their own ideas and solutions... She writes:

"insight—and the feedback it generates—is essential in online learning environments for instructors to customize the learning experience, whether to tackle areas where students are struggling or to connect learning to real-world case studies."

At Huddle Up, we couldn't agree more! 

The past year taught us how difficult virtual learning can be. In many ways, it's helped us redefine to goals of online learning - moving past right and wrong answers and finding ways to connect and share solutions. That's our challenge at Huddle Up Learning.

We're on a mission to transform online learning and problem-solving for individuals and organizations through a more purposeful, interactive experience. If this resonates with you, see our model in action.

A New Model to Target the "4 Cs" of Learning

  The “Four Cs” are established goals for learning in today’s world.  Creativity Critical Thinking Collaboration  Communication Schools around the world strive to foster these traits in students. Companies seek out individuals who can excel at these skills to lead their teams.  Despite the often cited disconnect between the world of business and academia, the Four Cs represent one area where there is solid agreement.  Organizations such as the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and Common Sense Education rightly tout these as a gold standard for what learning can be. Unfortunately, given the recent massive shift to online learning, the current model of watching videos (or listening to lectures), followed up with a quiz provides ample evidence of where our current online learning models are falling short.  Online learning falls short The Huddle Up platform represents a very different type of online learning experience. A platform that specifically targets the Four Cs by providing a

Why Huddle Up?

The "Why Huddle Up?" question is closely tied to "Why did we build Huddle Up?". And, it's a great place to start. In short, we're tired of online learning models that consist of boring videos with an occasional quiz. That's outdated learning. It's not relevant or engaging.  And, it's doing a disservice to any individual who has had to endure it... and the companies and schools that expect (and need) so much more.  Unlike that model of learning, we created Huddle Up because we believe the best learning comes when 1. Learners are involved in trying to create and share solutions, not memorize facts 2. Learners actively give feedback to one another, to improve each user's solution. 3. Real learning is not demonstrated by what you know. It is demonstrated by what you can do with what you know - and how your application of knowledge is judged by others. As educators ourselves, we sought to create a very different kind of learning platform that was
