Saffron has been confirmed as the exclusive sponsor of the Champagne Reception at this year’s E-Learning Age Awards. These awards help to drive excellence in our industry and to reward teams that are willing to take risks and go that extra mile in pursuit of engaging, exciting and behaviour changing e-learning programmes. We’ve always been big supporters of the E-Learning Awards so we’re thrilled to be able to sponsor this year’s event.
So everyone knows that the best way to get your message across in an e-learning course is to show you mean business and know your stuff by adopting an authoritative, intellectual and formal tone, right? Wrong. People – and your learners are people, after all – learn best when they receive information in a conversational tone, not when they are confronted with fancy grammatical constructions, intimidating legalese and incomprehensible jargon.
All too often potentially great e-learning courses suffer from poorly thought out questions. The spring issue of Head Light Communications’ newsletter features an article by one of our instructional designers about how to create better, more effective questions that test behavioural choices rather than just factual recall.

Put your hands up if you love learning!
Yes, we all love learning something new, especially when we do it in a just-in-time manner. I’m talking mainly about learning that provides practical instructions for everyday tasks. The ‘show me’ and ‘tell me’ kind of learning. The type of learning you wouldn’t necessarily sign up to a class for, but could very well need at some point in your day to day life or work.
Saffron Interactive believes that there is a sure fire formula for ensuring that your e-learning is relevant and engaging: focus on the choices that your people make, every day. We also believe in putting learners back where they belong – at the centre of your e-learning.
