Article: Context is King!

Too much information? In the world of eLearning nothing could ring more true than having access to a wealth of information, the article ‘Content is King‘ discusses how contextual learning is extremely important:

‘It is not the amount of information that we provide learners that is important. It is what is meaningful and immediately useful to impact their performance.’

Of course, technologies help the learners to make sense of the content, ‘for example, MIT alone has published over 10,000 free online courses and boasts of over 1 million content users’ on their Open courseware site.
