Donald Clark, Board Member Ufi and Non-Executive Director, Learning Pool.
Let’s be honest … people forget most of what they have been taught very quickly and, until now, no new technology addressed that. The forgetting curve will always defeat a single learning intervention. Spacing learning over time, however, has been shown to tackle memory’s natural inclination to fade. Couple that spacing to mobile devices and you have a winner. In this session Donald Clark explores how an app-based plugin to Moodle and Totara LMS could help fix the forgetting curve and raise job performance through improved retention.
Donald Clark was CEO and one of the original founders of Epic Group plc, which established itself as the leading company in the UK e-learning market, floated on the Stock Market in 1996 and sold in 2005.
