Article Title: Let Learners Sleep on It
Publication: Integrated Learnings: eLearning
Summary: As kids, many of us resisted bedtime. As adults, many of us wish we could get more sleep. For those in the midst of learning something new, a good night’s sleep can be especially beneficial. This article describes the neuroscience of how sleep helps learners form new memories and applies its implications to eLearning.
If learners must complete an eight-hour training session, consider spreading the training out over two days (maybe more) rather than making a full day of it. This can benefit attention spans, too. If all or part of the training is eLearning, you may have the ability to accomplish this more flexibly.
