Sensitive Learning Design! Boosts Inherent Cognitive Load. Eases out Extraneous Cognitive Load.

Cognitive load is a necessary ingredient of an impactful course design. Acquisition of indepth knowledge happens only as an upshot of successfully overcoming friction, difficulties and challenges. But for these stimulants, the learning can possibly turn into a damp squib. As much as boosting inherent cognitive load is key to designing a successful learning experience,... Continue Reading →

It has started breaching the 'limited information' channels, flowing in all possible directions seeking and absorbing intelligence of its choice. All thanks to the evolution of technology that has made this possibility possible! "In only one generation we have gone... Continue Reading →

We wade through an ocean of theory, cull the... Continue Reading →
