My guest for today’s episode is Chip Reaves, IT veteran and President for almost 10 years of Bigger Brains. Bigger Brains’ vast library of high-quality video-based courses on a variety of corporate training issues has received awards every year since at least 2015. And with Brain Bot, a chatbot that periodically quizzes you about past courses taken, it adds spaced repetition into the mix to multiply the value of the content.
In my conversation with Chip we talk about:
- The highlights and perils of producing corporate training contend during a pandemic, and whether or not you’ve been committing “eLearning malpractice”?
- What it takes to adapt: From classroom to online, from recorded to live, from Microsoft to Google, from lectures to microlearning, and much more..
- The challenge of adapting to young mindsets, and the enormous rewards that await you. Or as a millennial learning with Chip says: “Old people want to be paid with money, young people want to be paid with time.”
- Chips’s adventures in microlearning, and how, despite the seemingly small number of variables at play, there is still a lot of room for creativity and rigorous experimentation
