Upcoming Event: Training Magazine 2017 Online Learning Conference (Sept 25-27, New Orleans) – Learning Begins After Class: The Forgetting Curve in Online Learning

The Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve demonstrates how quickly we forget new information. Within the first 10 minutes, your learner has already forgotten a significant amount of the information that you worked hard to convey in your online course. Within 24 hours, most learners will forget at least half of your content and retention continues to decrease steadily after that. So why are so many online learning courses designed with a “one and done” approach? In this 60-minute session you will learn how the brain deliberately “forgets” and how you can overcome the forgetting curve through purposeful follow-up and reinforcement after training has taken place. You will walk away with a plan to build value in your learning designs through reinforcement that is grounded in learning science. Join me in New Orleans to learn simple, easy-to-implement activities and challenges to enhance memory and retention after class is finished.
