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.

The Evolution of Online Learning: Four Stages and What's Next?

The pandemic has made everyone far more knowledgeable about online learning platforms than they were 24 months ago. We each know (and feel) the strengths and the limitations of more than a few platforms.  We each have a long and growing list of features we want to see in the next evolution of online learning.  So, it seems a rather good time to step back and explore the evolution of online learning - to see how far we've come, and where we might be heading. One of the best resources out there is a simple progression chart shared in this intriguing article by Tiago Forte. The Future of Education is Community: The Rise of Cohort-Based Courses The evolution of online learning: What's next? We love big-picture reflections like this. While we are all aware of the current disconnect that still exists between the reality of our online learning platforms and the skills and knowledge we want to transfer to learners, we can all agree that the evolution above represents some significant a

Transforming The Way Cohorts Collaborate and Learn

Recently, our Huddle Up team has been having a debate about the cohorts we serve. One Platform: Resources. Ideas. Feedback. Data. Do we strive to transform the way online cohorts collaborate and learn? Or, to transform the way cohorts collaborate and learn?  In short, does the interaction and data shared within Huddle Up's platform allow cohorts to have more productive virtual and face-to-face meetings? We'd like to think "yes". But ultimately, time (and data!) will tell -  as Project Leaders continue to find innovate use-cases. In the last few weeks, we've created a few helpful videos to showcase the Huddle Up model. We hope they shed light on the big potential we see for how to help cohorts be more connected, engaged, and accountable to each other by focusing on ideas and feedback.
