From The Director’s Desk
 
As our quote for this issue of Upside Learning Buzz rightly says‚ there is always a beginning; behind the awards and recognitions‚ the features and the frills‚ the people and their efforts.

Winning the Learning In Practice Award 2011 takes me back to the early days of our company when UpsideLMS was launched as a indigenously-built Learning Management System. Since then it has undergone numerous facelifts‚ notched various awards and recognitions‚ and served a wide range of clients across various industries and countries. I would like to thank you for being a part of our extended Upside Learning family. We owe our success to you as much as to all our team members.

Coming to the newsletter‚ the UpsideLMS flavor continues (quite evidently) in the news section too‚ while the other sections will give you a taste of custom eLearning‚ game-based learning‚ mobile learning and more.
 
 
Until next time‚ happy reading.

The Complexity Of Learning

Learning is a process that is riddled with complexity. The science of complexity offers a different type of lens to view learning‚ one that is apart from cog-psych lens designers so often wear.

So learn how ‘complexity’ as a scientific concept affects learning‚ especially if you consider learning as a complex adaptive network that is driven by human desire for knowledge and sociability‚ in our 2 part series on ‘The Complexity Of Learning – I and II’.
