Anniversaries are for the nostalgic and sentimental… and yeah, sometimes that’s even us here at Quickclass! They’re also a time to step back and reflect on how far we’ve come and what we’ve learnt along the way… always appropriate for an organisation dedicated to accelerating learning through superb software and services!
Way back in the summer of 2016, Nayna and Nick of Quickclass Marketing recommended that the best way to share regular updates on the subjects related to Edtech, eLearning and smart device Apps would be to regularly write articles about them and share with the world. A seemingly endless knocking back and forth about ideas, designs, formats and mechanisms for sending followed, and a few weeks later, at the beginning of August, our first issue of ‘Quickclass Tuesday’ was posted out to the world.
Since then, through over 200 articles, and dozens of ‘lighter’ subjects in the 5th article slot, we’ve explored the rapidly evolving world of mLearning and all the subjects around it, and these articles have garnered 1000’s of clickthroughs and reads. This year, the slant has changed slightly as Quickclass has pivoted from focusing primarily on Film and Media education towards helping extraordinary SME training organisations for ALL subjects, from museum exhibition curation, to medical surgery consent, to personal development… on top of our continuing commitment to filmmaking education.
What is clear from all the research, editorial discussions, drafting, editing and finalising these hundreds of articles… is that there are few industries in the world today which are better placed to have a positive impact on the world than eLearning. We now keep in our pockets and our palms, the keys to kingdoms of knowledge, and most promisingly, the software continues to rapidly evolve in sophistication to better anticipate and work with each individual learner to deliver the best possible learning journey on any subject.
Yet, its only the start. As we’ve reported at length, the advent and evolution of video in learning, increasingly personalised courses, AI and the new hatching worlds of VR and AR, all promise to further revolutionise how effectively we learn and therefore humanity’s collective intelligence and potential. No one can deny the planet faces a steadily growing list of increasingly urgent challenges, and the BEST way we can tackle and overcome them will be through how quickly and deeply we can collectively learn.
We hope Quickclass will contribute to this movement in our own humble but increasingly impactful way.
Finally, we’ve collaborated with dozens of talented writers on ‘Quickclass Tuesday’s’ articles – all remain nameless here, but most have employed their enthusiasm and best work to help us communicate a particular point of view to the world. We thank them wholeheartedly.
The biggest thanks of all though is reserved for ‘Quickclass Tuesday’s’ Editor-in-Chief. For each issue, she carefully and consciously researches topics to report on, takes editorial feedback with humility and good humour, and most of all, manages the almost impossible task of herding cats to bring it all together every fortnight. My enormous thanks and respect go straight and unabatedly to Nayna Luthra.
