The ITIL Crowd unveiled its new logo this weekend. Drawing from the 50’s lounge style, the ITIL Crowd was tapping into a more relaxed, fun approach to IT and Project Management training.
Seeking to breakaway from the dull, mundane technical training that encompasses much of the training options out there, the ITIL Crowd is a training company with a better approach.
Why do some trainers simply slap their black text on a white background powerpoint and call it a training? Seriously. Too many call this ‘training’. Remember ‘Telling ain’t Training”. And “Death by Powerpoint” is a well known cliché for a reason.
What is most sad: many trainer take their powerpoint slides, put them on handouts, and call this a “Study guide”. How original. And drawing lines under your powerpoint does not make it “interactive”. This is no way to force million of people to learn – and often with this technique forget. The ITIL Crowd has better solutions.
The ITIL Crowd has decided it is about time to get the IT, project management, and other technical and management learning endeavors up to the 21st century. Participants should be demanding this. Training should ingrain the leading cognitive and pedagogical research. Most technical trainers don’t care knowing the multitude of learning best practices. They are more concentrated on knowing their subject area and spitting it back to you. The ITIL Crowd loves wading thru the piles of educational and scientific research to bring the subject matter expertise to life. After all, it is no good if you can’t remember it. You can’t remember it if you are bored, or worse, asleep! The ITIL Crowd training courses are more dynamic; and consequently more effective.
The ITIL Crowd does not didactically give you the information you seek to learn. Why waste your time? No reason for us to just talk “at” you for hours on end. It may fill your brain like a cup. But much will spill. Less will be absorb. And the whole wasteful cycle would need to begin again. Whereas, The ITIL Crowd training classes incorporate true learning research and best practice. The classes are truly “instructionally designed”. The audience is considered. Lessons built around you. Multiple learning styles infused. Most importantly, the end goals are layout and targeted – but equal attention and care is spent on the means.
In learning, your path to success is as important as hitting the goal. Learning is about the long term goals as much as the short term goals. You can only achieve that with good, strong instructionally designed curricula. The ITIL Crowd is forming classes now. See what we mean. You will not be disappointed.
