Happy Thanksgiving!

LMS, Training  By: Mike Babcock

smallGyrus Systems wishes all of our customers and blog readers a very Happy Thanksgiving celebration.  Here’s more reasons to celebrate: This blog will be short, and

I will not discuss “skills,” as important as they are!

Earlier this year I used quotes by Ben Franklin as inspiration for a couple of blogs.  Another quote which many think was a Franklin quote, but really is an Anglo version of a writing from Chinese philosopher Xunzi is my thought for the day:

“Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.”

We should all remember this simple statement when developing learning programs for our colleagues or implementing an LMS at our company.  The path of least resistance, in labor and/or cost, may be simply to “tell” and “teach” but it’s only when learners are “involved” that they truly learn and can apply what they learn to their daily activities, ultimately resulting in higher employee job satisfaction and increased corporate compliance.
