In the online world, a blog is a showplace for content. But what, exactly, is “content”?
Content can be many things: a video, maybe. Or a meme. Or a still image. Or a written passage.
But at the most basic level, content is about ideas. Whether it’s expressed in words or pictures, content conveys our thoughts, opinions, insights, and questions about the issues that matter to us.
At MindEdge, our focus is on learning. What matters to us is how people learn, and what we can do to help them learn more effectively. We’ve got a lot of ideas on the topic, and we’d like to offer them up as food for thought — your thought — in the hope of stirring up more ideas, more innovation, and more understanding. That’s the sole purpose of the MindEdge Learning Blog.
MindEdge has spent the past two decades developing content and courses that balance academic excellence with real world practice — and that appeal to adult learners in higher education, professional development, and continuing education. To ensure the effectiveness and relevance of our solutions, we’ve focused on monitoring learner performance and on a continuous improvement process.
We think the ideas that we advance in this blog can help us meet our vision of “improving the way the world learns.”
We’ll look at ways to help adult learners to improve their comprehension, to build skills and competencies more effectively, and to reach mastery of concepts, ideas, and knowledge. Some of the ongoing discussion will be about employing technology to accelerate learning, but we will put our primary focus on the process of teaching and learning — not on the tools alone.
