24/7 Blended Learning

24/7 Blended Learning

Demands for Blended Learning

Experienced PMs are rare and costly. To scale and be competitive, new methods of training are required. Executive leadership tell us that to be really good in today’s Integrated PM jobs, PMs need at least 10 years of practice.

This is hard to find, and if found, too expensive at the scale needed. Organizations need to find faster ways to accelerate expertise outside of normal job experiences.

pmNERDS’ Training Course Designer

"If I engage a Course Designer, then my training course will be much more compelling and effective than if I did it myself, but I will most likely have to share my profits with them."

There is a technical side to building any e-Learning course. The more flexibility and functionality the learning platform offers, the more difficult it can be learning how to use. At pmNERDS, we use MOODLE, one of the World's largest open source learning management platforms.

pmNERDS’ Training Course Instructors

“If I decide to become a Course Instructor, then I can help other people and make money, but I will need to provide support for marketing as much as an author does for their books. ”

Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning

“PBL: Building Project People for a More Efficient Future.”

It is not a secret that as a society we have dramatically outpaced our ancestors with innovative technology that has increased our standard of living and life expectancy all over the world, yet habitual inefficiency is literally part of our daily lives. Industrially developed countries extensively waste food, we ship consumer goods that could have been made locally, and as a society we are influenced through culture to consume goods based on desires rather than needs. This reality is not likely to change quickly and neither will larger problems such as global warming, natural disasters, disease, poverty, and famine that exist all over the world. The steps taken thus far have shown limited results, because to overcome these issues we must seek a change in conscious orientation.

Social Learning Activities

Social Learning Activities

“If I use a blended learning course, then I can gain the best of all worlds, but it is still very lonely, and I just don’t get as motivated to complete the course as in a live course.”

I get my personal energy from engaging with other people. I learn by study, and then explaining to others. I do my best work, when others can see me. Ok, you might not be like me, but others are. Most of us, for one reason or another, thrive in a social environment where idea exchange is regular. Real learning occurs when people are impacted at a social level.
