The Future of E-Learning

E- Learning – What does the Future Hold

While it has been around for years, e-learning came into its own during the pandemic, when COVID made it too dangerous for teachers and students to gather in traditional classrooms. Many people wonder what place e-learning will have in education in the years to come.

E-learning, also known as eLearning, is an umbrella term for any type of learning activity that uses electronics to enhance the learning environment. A number of technologies fall under the e-learning canopy; these technologies include interactive whiteboards, online classes, and audio and video conferencing.

The pandemic forever shaped e-learning. Many students (and their teachers and parents) had never even heard of e-learning before 2020, but are now proficient at using electronic devices to optimize the education experience. In a recent survey, in fact, 73 percent of higher education students said they would prefer to take at least some of their courses fully online following the pandemic. But what might that learning experience look like?

What E-learning Might Look Like in the Future

Students may someday “plug into” an electronic device to learn a skill, somewhat like in The Matrix, when Neo straps on an assortment of electrodes that allow him to download a martial arts training program directly into his brain. He awakens and delivers the now-famous line, “I know Kung Fu.”

Tomorrow’s students may learn using an advanced form of fMRI, for example, an imaging technology that allows researchers to see which portions of the brain are active during various tasks. Conceivably, one could someday use an fMRI to record and upload the brain activity of an expert performing a specific task; a student could then download that activity to their brain and instantly understand how to perform that task.

Admittedly, we are quite a long way from having the ability to download knowledge, but researchers are already investigating the potential for fMRI in education. Until then, e-learning will likely augment traditional methods of education.

Heavy on adaptive learning

Every student learns in their own unique way, so tomorrow’s learning platforms will adapt themselves to the learner. Complex algorithms and assessments help guide the tailor-made coursework, rather than relying on the determination of teachers who may have subconscious biases about the capabilities of students.

A more social approach to learning

Mention e-learning and the image that often comes to mind is of a lone student staring at the computer in solitude, but tomorrow’s e-learning will involve plenty of social interaction and collaboration in the form of online forums, file-sharing platforms, and classroom-wide chatrooms. As social learning applications grow and develop, they will likely become the backbone of tomorrow’s classroom.

Exciting for visual learners

People learn in different ways. Some are audio learners that gain most of their information by listening, while others are kinesthetic learners who benefit from hands-on experiences. Many video learners, which means they gain most of their information through visual experiences. Traditional learning benefits audio learners, who excel in the standard lecture/note taking format of today’s classroom. E-learning provides a heavy helping of video-based lectures, instructional videos, and advanced graphics and more.

Personalized

Artificial intelligence (AI), once regarded as the sinister driving force behind HAL 9000 and the Y2K conspiracy theories, is now emerging as an important tool in e-learning. AI can drive adaptive learning, guide students through courses depending on the students’ past learning behaviors, predict and address challenges individual students may face long before the learner falls behind, and even provide on-the-fly course modification and personalization.

Easier to digest

Large, multi-phase learning projects can be mind-numbing, even for the most agile of learners. Breaking lengthy lessons into smaller bits can make it easier to absorb and retain information. Microlearning chops up larger lessons into shorter segments.

More fun and engaging

Learning is always easier when it is fun. Gamification is the art of making learning seem more like a game. Tomorrow’s advanced graphic capabilities, along with ultra-high-speed internet, will combine fast-paced action with advanced learning methods in ways that encourages students to learn, practice, and apply what they have learned to other lessons.

Learning from anywhere with mobile learning

The computers of the late 20th century were woefully inadequate when it came to learning – slow internet speeds, lack of memory, and boring graphics impeded learning. Today, we have a wider variety of electronic devices that range from lightning-fast desktop computers to super slim laptops and even smart phones. Undoubtedly, tomorrow’s students will have an even wider array of devices to use for mobile learning.

Immersion learning with virtual and augmented reality

Blackboards and books are yesterday’s news! Tomorrow’s learners will fully immerse themselves into every subject. Imagine talking to historical figures in a virtual reality setting rather than just reading about them!

In just a few short years, e-learning will likely be quite different from what it is today. Whether it will completely replace classroom learning remains to be seen, but it seems increasingly likely. Once seen as futuristic, e-learning is here to stay.

ClickStream CEO Frank Magliochetti Talks about Disrupting Conventional Industries

CLICKSTREAM CEO FRANK MAGLIOCHETTI TALKS DISRUPTING CONVENTIONAL INDUSTRIES THROUGH APPS, EXPLODING NFT TECH, AND WHY CLIS IS A SMART INVESTMENT TODAY

In an incredibly thorough and and candid interview Hazel Saunders of the Ritz Herald talks with Frank M<agliochetti about all things ClickStream!

Here is the Interview: for the original source please head to The Ritz Herald.

There are no businesses with greater potential today than those positioned to dominate booming digital economies. One company that knows that more than anyone is ClickStream, a rapidly expanding business that is on a mission to disrupt conventional industries by way of game-changing mobile apps. ClickStream is traded on the stock market as CLIS.

These app subsidiaries span a multitude of industries: from gaming and language learning to investing early on tech which facilitates the exploding NFT industry. But though the genre they cover vary, all have one thing in common: each is revolutionizing its field with trailblazing tech – and already reaping the rewards.

The man behind the innovation is CEO and founder, Frank Magliochetti, who has led the business since 2019. Here, we sit down with the CEO as he reveals the surprisingly simple secret to the company’s success, what makes ClickStream’s apps unique, and why the business is such a smart investment option today…

What does a typical day look like for you as the CEO of ClickStream?

It’s about focusing on priorities and not on the noise which creeps into your day. My typical day involves being focused on the initiatives which drive enterprise value, which is critical when dealing with startups like CLIS.

Keeping team members aligned on our quarterly objectives is also vital for our success. Many distractions can enter into your day, so discipline to remain focused on critical success factors is always our daily goal.

What makes ClickStream apps like HeyPal, WinQuick, and Nifter so different from the competition?

Let me walk you through each! HeyPal is different from the competition in one simple way: users learn languages the most natural and human way possible – with other people! Studies show that social interaction is a key component, and arguably the most vital aspect of language learning.

HeyPal makes it easy to find new penpals to learn a language with through direct messaging, a special teacher/student matching algorithm, and a common social feed – all of which can be instantly translated from native to learning language instantly, and vice versa.

All the features of HeyPal are built around creating human connections and practicing new languages in context. While traditional learning methodologies like flashcards, rote memorization, and lessons are important to language learning, many platforms lack social interaction and the “live” components. This is where real practice occurs and why many who study new languages never actually apply those learnings, and often lose their progress.

Beyond the base human interactions, many language learners find that special person and a keen interest, offering more motivation to “impress” their counterparts, and providing the missing, but vital, accountability factor.

Then we have WinQuik. This is one of only two platforms in the market that offers live-hosted trivia games for Android and iOS. Trivia HQ is the other. WinQuik’s live games are different – and better than – HQ because of our unique timing mechanism. Our technology allows users to be timed as they answer live trivia questions. The ones who answer the most questions correctly in the fastest amount of time reach the top of WinQuik’s leaderboard. WinQuik’s payouts are larger because the app can isolate the top fastest users, whereas HQ splits the pot amongst the thousands who got all 10 questions correct that day leading to diluted payouts.

Also, WinQuik has layered security measures to ensure bots, duplicate accounts, and unverified users do not play and do not end up on the leaderboard. Other trivia apps like HQ seem to be more passive on such security efforts.

Plus, unlike HQ, WinQuik offers four different game types that can be played 24/7 including a 1 vs. 1 challenge feature that allows users to play friends and family in trivia contests for coins that they “bet” against each other. Cash prizes are offered for users who complete the most amount of 1 vs. 1 challenge in a week.

Nifter is a unique NFT platform because of its niche appeal to music lovers. It is the first NFT marketplace to focus solely on songs being minted as NFTs. There is no other ‘noise’ on the platform such as dancing cats or artworks of French Bulldogs. Currently, other NFT marketplaces such as Nifty drop NFTs for collectibles that support the artist and their music, but aren’t the actual songs – album art, fan experiences, etc. ClickStream is working to partner with major record labels, music groups, producers, and recording artists to tap into the uncharted territory of song NFTs. Other platforms have shied away from minting the non-independent songs because of an unwillingness to work with the entities that own the music. Nifter’s business model is to partner with the music giants to create a brand extension for their artists.

Are your current apps large enough to sustain the company as a competitive investment in the major public markets?

Absolutely, or we would never have invested in them. The HeyPal segment exceeds 1 billion, and the NFT segment is at an embryonic stage. This segment is going to explode and we have a turnkey marketplace that can go horizontal in any segment. It is a transferable platform. The opportunity is enormous. Then, our children’s entertainment and education app, Joey’s Animal Kingdom, is in a segment that is growing by double digits, with the global segment is in the billions.

How are you capitalizing the company and will it be sustainable on the market? Is the company financing through debt or through equity and how will that affect shareholder value?

We finance our operations and growth through equity. Don’t lose sight: we are an OTC company in a startup situation in which we internally finance start-up projects. In other words, we are an incubator. Financing OTC enterprises is challenging and we have our niche in how we raise capital. To date, it has worked.

It is our intent for the successful companies in our asset portfolio that we will seek additional capital by externally funding them. An example of which could be uplisting one of our subsidiaries. This will provide enormous enterprise value CLIS.

Where do you see the company 5 years from now?

It is our goal to have 3 to 4 subsidiaries listed to Nasdaq and to have CLIS as a Nasdaq listed company.

Why should someone buy stock in your company?

It is our opinion that our stock is grossly undervalued at this time. Our subsidiary values are grossly undervalued. All OTC stocks are speculative for a host of reasons – and Sustainability and Growth Potential are key indicators of unrealized value. Compare the markets our subsidiaries are into the Sustainability and Growth Potential and you will c see we are clearly positioned for success. There is no guarantee, however, there’s no doubt about it that we are in explosive segments.

E-learning: A Better Way to Learn

E-learning: A Better Way to Learn

For many students, e-learning is the greatest invention since the chalkboard. Students can now access nearly any course they can imagine, from picking up a new language to learning the art of clowning. This instant/anywhere access to learning frees students from the confines of a classroom and class schedule, and allows students to explore and absorb information in new ways.

E-learning, or eLearning, is any type of learning that occurs on a computer. Also known as online learning, e-learning often uses the internet, although learning may also involve the use of DVDs and CD-ROMs, streaming video or audio, and other media. E-learning is extraordinarily versatile and can accommodate all learning styles for a wide variety of studies, from grade school courses to graduate degrees. This approach can be utilized for a wide variety of learning types, such as one-to-one communication, collaboration and study groups, or the traditional teaching environment of an instructor leading a class.

Benefits of E-learning

Using a computer and internet connection for learning provides a number of benefits that other approaches don’t. E-learning lets students attend classes remotely in situations in which in-classroom learning is not possible, for example. This lets children and adults continue learning when they are too ill to attend classes, are interested in specializes learning, are traveling, or have limited access to classroom learning.

Online learning also allows students to study at their own pace, and this can present a distinct advantage when it comes to retention. Recent research shows that students retain 25 to 60 percent more material on average when learning online, according to statistics presented by the World Economic Forum, compared to only 8 to 10 percent in a classroom. The organization attributes the increased retention to faster learning: e-learning requires 40 to 60 percent less time to learn than in a traditional classroom setting, which then allows students to take more time to absorb difficult concepts and review any information they do not understand.’

While learners can move at their own pace, online learning programs do provide structure and routine that helps students accomplish the day-to-day tasks of learning. The structure of online learning also facilitates the smooth transition between activities and reduces disruptions; this is especially helpful for younger students, who tend to lose focus between activities.

Combining live e-learning group sessions with independent learning activities can help students develop a healthy balance of independent study and social interaction with teachers and with other students – including teachers and students from diverse backgrounds. E-learning can even help students of all ages expand their computer skills, navigate new applications, develop fine motor skills, learn tech vocabulary, and even learn how to code.

E-learning is also accessible and cost-effective. Students can engage in e-learning at any time and from anywhere, which reduces costs associated with traveling. Unlike other learning environments that require multiple instructors and support staff, just one teacher can administer an e-learning course to a nearly unlimited number of students. Aside from a computer and internet connection, no additional resources are required – e-learning is making classroom space or books obsolete. What’s better is that teachers and students can reuse materials indefinitely, which reduces costs even more.

Simply offering information on the internet is not enough, though, especially when providing educational material to younger students. Watching videos and reading stories has limited appeal to children, so the most effective e-learning materials also contain other materials that attract and challenge young minds. Joeys Animal Kingdom, a new entry coming soon to e-learning, captivates students with interesting animals, fun storytelling, exciting videos, live quizzes and games, kids’ profiles, and games.

The introduction of Wowee World’s flagship animated series provides children with a new way to learn about the animal kingdom. The hero of the story, Joey, traveled the world with his parents to visit zoos and help animals. Inspired by his passion for animals, Joey now helps educate other children about our planet and the animals that live here. An adorable collection of furry and feathered friends helps Joey and his chimpanzee sidekick, Mochi, teach children about animals. Future animated shows will create e-learning experiences in a number of topics, such as science, history, culture, sports and food/nutrition.

E-learning is increasingly popular, especially among young students who are already using programs like Wowee World.  In fact, e-learning will likely become a mainstay in education in years to come.

Try A Social Learning App Like HeyPal to Learn a New Language!

Social Learning Apps the future of Language Learning!

The primary purpose of language is to provide a means of communication with others – a way to talk to one another. It’s not surprising, then, that we learn a new language by talking to one another. Using a new language in social situations helps us learn new words and phrases, correct mispronunciations, and enjoy the skills we have learned along the way.

Until very recently, the only ways to learn a language was to take a class led by a single teacher and practice with the other students who didn’t know the language either, or to move to a place where people speak the language you wish to learn. Classroom learning helps students build their vocabulary, but it may also instill a very formal style of speaking that sounds stiff to people who already speak the language – it can also make it hard to communicate with native speakers with dialects different from the one you learned. Immersion learning is great, if you can afford to move to a new country and have the patience, ability and courage to teach yourself.

Social Language Learning Apps Bridge the Gap between Classroom and Immersion Learning

Social language learning apps provide a third option when it comes to learning a new language. Social learning platforms allows people to collaborate, share and communicate with other users who have more, less, or the same amount of knowledge in a particular field. This means users can learn conversational language directly from native speakers who may have different dialects, and help teach language skills to those with less experience.

Language learning apps also have built-in tools and programs that make learning easier and more enjoyable. Social learning platforms are also entertaining, in that users can meet and interact with like-minded people from around the world. Having fun can have a positive effect on motivation levels and the amount of information the user retains.

Social language learning apps are also convenient – simply pick up your phone and start the app, any time of day or night. This puts the user in control of how often they study their new language.

Popular Apps that Use Social Learning for Languages

HelloTalk

HelloTalk allows users to communicate with language partners via text, voice calls, voice messages, video calls, and doodles. The app also offers a number of tools, such as translation, pronunciation, transliteration, and corrections. Users can engage with, share updates and even ask questions in larger communities by posting “Moments,” which are public posts that all native speakers of the target language can see.

While HelloTalk encourages free-form interaction, it does not offer structured learning that other apps provide.

Tandem

Tandem is an up-to-date language exchange app with millions of users. After filling out a short profile, users scroll through age-badged photo profiles to find someone they’d like to strike up a conversation in a new language with. While it can feel a little like Tinder, the platform does aim to connect and match up strangers with a mutual interest in speaking a specific language.

Bilingua

Bilingua is similar to Tandem in that users might end up saying “Hello, how are you?” to dozens of strangers before finding someone they’d really like to talk to.

MyLanguageExchange

MyLanguageExchange is better than Bilingua or Tandem when it comes to making long-term connections, but it features an old-school website that might appeal only to an older crowd and not necessarily to students who are more accustomed to the instant and anonymous feel of modern apps. Its database features people interested in language exchanges, along with short bios and details of what they are looking for in a “study buddy.”

HeyPal™ App from Clickstream

The HeyPal™ app from Clickstream is one of the most exciting social learning apps for picking up a new language. This language learning platform focuses on “language exchanging” between users from around the world. Instead of using quizzes and other traditional language-learning tools, HeyPal™ matches learners together with native speakers, which makes the whole process of learning a language more fun, engaging, and faster. HeyPal™ also offers social media features, including posts and media uploading to “language boards” that allow participants to post original content and fully immerse themselves in the language they are learning.

HeyPal™ has made big strides and is still growing. Between its beta launch in the iOS App Store in February 2021 and July 6th, HeyPal™ received a total of over 2.2 million messages, more than 470,000 translations, over 13,000 posts, exceeded 110,000 likes and has over 38,000 downloads.

The app has also taken the market by storm, growing nearly 22% in a single week in 2021, from 54,700 on June 22nd to 66,500 app downloads on June 30th. The growth rate of almost 22,000 new downloads blew away the competition, including apps that are much larger and have been around a while. Clearly, HeyPal™ will be at the top of the app store after its Android worldwide launch in the fall of 2021.

As of July 27th HeyPal has a reach of over 3,000,000 Messages, 650,000 Translations, 140,000 Likes, 17,000 Posts and 86,000 Downloads in Just Over 5.5 Months of Beta Launch.

“There’s such positive momentum with the usage and feedback of HeyPal™ and it’s apparent consumers are looking for different and fun ways to learn a new language. What’s exciting about HeyPal™ is all the messages back and forth between people meeting each other from different parts of the world and it’s really incredible to see the social aspect of engagement and learning. It is our belief the true launch of HeyPal™ will be upon the Android release ” stated Frank Magliochetti, CEO of ClickStream Corp.

Picking up a new language has never been easier or more fun! Simply choose a social learning app and start connecting with others interested in a language exchange experience.

Benefits & Advantages of Learning a New Language with an App

Software applications, or apps, have changed how people do just about everything. We used to call a cab and use paper maps to go somewhere, for example, and now we simply tap the Uber and Google Maps icons on our phones. Apps provide a new way to learn how to cook, dance, invest, socialize, and even play a musical instrument. Apps have changed how we learn new languages too. These apps are successful because they offer benefits and advantages over other approaches to learning.

Advantages of Apps over Traditional Methods of Learning New Languages

Apps have advantages over traditional education tools when it comes to learning a new language. Prior to the digital age, for example, people could only learn languages if they had access to language resources, educators, and courses in their town. Apps allow people to learn a new language anywhere they could get an internet connection.

Choose any language or course

Most brick-and-mortar schools and colleges teach Spanish, German, French, English, and Arabic, but fewer institutes of learning offer Polish, Dutch, Japanese, Vietnamese or Malay. Apps allow you to learn nearly any language spoken on the planet.

Learn at any time

Unlike in-person courses that have a set day and time for classes, apps allow you to learn a new language at any time of day or night. Sticking to a schedule can put you at risk for attending classes when you are tired or stressed out. Using an app lets you study when you have the time and energy for optimal learning.

Go at your own pace

Falling behind the rest of the class is stressful and embarrassing. Perhaps the worst part is that, once you fall behind your classmates, it is difficult to catch up. Getting ahead of the class is also frustrating as you wait for them to catch up. Using an app allows you to learn at your own pace.

Apps offer a variety of ways to learn

Everyone learns a new language in their own way; some people learn by memorizing vocabulary while others absorb more by playing games. Apps provide a wide variety of education techniques to suit almost every learning style.

You can start speaking your new language right away

Many traditional language courses start with history and grammar, whereas language apps typically try to get you speaking the language as soon as possible. Nearly three-fourths of Babbel users say they feel capable of maintaining a small conversation in their new language after just 5 hours instruction on the app.

You can track your progress

Apps can help you track your vocabulary, the amount of time you spend studying, and other information about your learning. Many digital language programs also offer rewards systems to keep you moving forward.

You can learn what is relevant to you

In a traditional classroom environment, everyone learns the same information, whether it interests them or not. This means students have to learn words and grammar rules they may never use – those who just want to learn how to order dinner during their Roman holiday has to learn as much Italian as someone who intends to move there. Apps allow individuals to learn as much or as little of a language as they desire.

Benefits of Using an App to Learn a New Language

Apps are customizable

Doing coursework on your own schedule allows you to study when you are in the mood. The customizable features of apps also let you learn your way, and at your own pace.

Apps are fun

Many apps make a game out of learning, which takes the drudgery out of picking up a new language. Apps feature images, sound and video that are colorful, cheerful, and fast moving, so time goes by quickly.

Access to online tutors

Everyone needs a little help now and then, especially when it comes to learning a language. iTalki, Rype, Tandem, Preply, Verbling, Live Lingua, and other apps offer online tutors that help you speak the language correctly.

Apps really work

Perhaps the greatest benefit is that apps really work. In a recent study, 85 undergraduates used an app to learn Spanish. Oral proficiency, vocabulary and grammar tests showed the students had learned enough to communicate in Spanish after just 12 weeks.

While using an app is not for everyone, it is a great way for many people to learn a new language without having to sit in a classroom. Whether you prefer iPhone, Android or a different device, you can use an app to start speaking a new language today.

Language Apps -Best of 2021

Learn a Foreign Language App – Best of 2021

Learning a foreign language is one of the best things anyone can do to connect with others, further a career, and boost brainpower. In the old days, there were two ways to learn a new language: take a class and talk to other people. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted classroom learning and prevented people from practicing their newfound language skills with others. The good news is that advances in technology and cell phone apps have made it easier, faster, and less expensive to learn a language in exciting new ways.

A number of language learning apps are available today, and while most language applications help build vocabulary and proper grammar for the target language, each apps provides a different approach to learning a language. Some have speech recognition to ensure proper pronunciation, for example, while others offer instruction in multiple languages. A handful has emerged as the top language learning apps.

Best Foreign Language Learning Apps of 2021

Memrise

Memrise focuses on basic translation, building understanding of the language through real life situations, and correct pronunciation. Users start by learning a few key words and phrases then watches video clips of native speakers with different speaking styles and real accents that help the user recognize the nuances of the new language. The app focuses less on grammar rules and more on giving learners the confidence to speak in their new language.

Duolingo

Duolingo improves vocabulary and grammar through daily lessons and quizzes covering vocabulary recognition, listening activities and voice-enabled speaking practice. The app motivates learners by letting them earn points, level up, get virtual currency and even compete with others.

Mondly

Mondly is a colorful app that makes learning a new language fun, but it is also a serious language program. Users can choose among 30 languages to learn; they can also select their native language from among 33 choices to make learning even easier. The app uses a combination of course materials, chatbots, instant feedback, and augmented reality (AR) to help learners master a new language.

Mondly is game-like in that users can take lessons and tests to unlock the door to the next level. A new daily lesson unlocks every 12 hours. Users who complete the entire week of daily lessons take a weekly test; learners who complete the weekly tests unlock a monthly challenge. Getting access to the next learning level is good motivation for coming back day after day.

Users who open a free Mondy account have access to seven lessons and a daily lesson under the “Hello” topic. A paid account opens up the remaining lessons under topics such as core vocabulary, family, seasons and weather, public transportation, food and drinks, and even travel, vacation activities and preparing a trip.

Babbel

Babbel offers bite-size, interactive lessons that cover words and phrases someone would use in real life, from introducing themselves to ordering food or making travel arrangements. The app makes it easy to learn enough of a language to hold a short conversation after using the app for just a few hours.

The linguists and language teachers that designed Babbel created a system tailored to the user’s native language and target language, reflecting differences in the ways language-users learn new languages – an English-speaker might learn Italian differently from a Spanish-speaker, for example, so Babbel presents slightly different lessons for each language pair.

HeyPal™ Featured Future Star

HeyPal™ is a language exchange, which is an approach based on mutual learning. The app pairs language exchange partners; each partner is a native speaker of the language the other wants to learn. HeyPal allows users from around the world to use interactive chat and social posts to learn and practice a new language.

After signup, users select their native language and choose from among 30 languages that they wish to learn. Next, users interact and practice with people who speak their target language. HeyPal also includes instant translation features, grammar and spelling assist, and engaging video tutorials.

Because users get to interact with one another and practice their language skills right away and in a comfortable, natural setting of real conversations, HeyPal is fun and immersive way to learn a new language.

No single app is perfect for every user, but using an app can help almost every learner pick up a new language without having to sit in a classroom or travel to a foreign land to practice their new skills.
