We take a broad view looking for inspiration in the present and throughout history.

We try to remain ‘tool and platform agnostic’. Yes, we have our favourite tools and platforms, but focussing on the tool or media rather than the learners’ needs, rarely produces great learning outcomes.

Here are a few subjects, philosophies and tools we’ve found to produce maximum impact when implemented to address the learners needs.

Making learning as awesome as possible started millennia ago.

Aristotle was a popular pupil of the famous ancient Greek philosopher Plato. But unlike Plato and Socrates, Aristotle displayed an instinct to use scientific and factual reasoning in his study of nature. Perhaps it was because of his unyielding fascination for nature, logic, and reason that his pivotal contributions are still reflected in modern-day mathematics, metaphysics, physics, biology, botany, politics, medicine, and many more.

The ancient philosophers never knew about eLearning, online meetings or things like Agile or digital marketing techniques. They were certainly never told ‘You’re on mute!’ But still to this day, their teachings remain as valid and important as they were over 2000 years ago.

Just like Aristotle, we also ask ourselves, who should we learn from now?

Here are just a few of the incredible minds we take inspiration from:

  • Richard Mayer and Ruth Clark – researchers in the empirical testing of media and media mix hypotheses in online learning.
  • Bob Mosher – An active and influential leader in the learning and training industry for over 30 years.
  • Cathy Moore – Internationally recognized training designer dedicated to saving the world from boring instruction. 
  • Donald Clark – One of the greatest minds in the UK training industry and a pretty good blogger.
  • Rob Hubbard – Co-author of The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual featuring contributions from the brightest and best elearning minds on both sides of the Atlantic.
