Millennials comprise the largest generational sector since the baby boomers. As this group enters the job market, training organizations will be forced to find new innovative ways to reach this new audience.

“This report suggests that far too many are graduating high school and completing postsecondary educational programs without receiving adequate skills,” the report stated. “If we expect to have a better educated population and a more competitive workforce, policy makers and other stakeholders will need to shift the conversation from one of educational attainment to one that acknowledges the growing importance of skills and examines these more critically.”
We are actively investigating along with D2L methods of addressing this issue. We don’t expect to be able to completely prevent such behavior due to undesirable consequences for other students, but we are working on detecting it so appropriate notifications can be made and action can be taken quickly.
If you need more information on the issue, prevention, and possible solutions, please contact your local D2L System Administrator or Dick McMullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chuck Morris at Chuck.Morris@so.mnscu.edu.

|5 Tips: Learn more effectively in class with Mastery Learning
In traditional classrooms, students progress through the class regardless of their level of achievement. In mastery learning classrooms, students must fully understand (demonstrate mastery of) the material before moving on to the next topic. Mastery learning is about how students navigate through exercises and assignments.
In the SCSU case, particularly D2L, technique can be applied by creating training, versus assessment D2L quizzes for students and allow unlimited number of takes, but condition the quizzes to allow the student to pass to the next chapter in D2L content only after reaching a certain quiz score.

|Doodling is often seen as a sign of distraction. If you’re doodling, you’re not paying attention. If you’re drawing, you’re not taking notes. You’re not listening. You’re not learning.
But research published in the latest edition of the journal Science challenges the anti-doodling stance. It contends that not only can doodling help students learn, but that drawing is an important tool for scientific discovery.
Dr. Miltenoff and Dr. Schnellert presented at MADLAT (http://madlat.ca/) their cross-cultural comparison and research on the use of social media in education:
