In our section SPOTLIGHT we will report on current topics together with our experts from various business units on a regular basis.
We interviewed our colleagues Suat Korkut and Marco Fromm from the digital learning unit and wanted to know what important insights there are about digital learning and how learning has changed.
How do people learn with digital media, are there any differences?
“The cognitive process of learning, that is, what happens in our brain and how the information is processed, is fundamentally no different. However, there are definitely differences, because in the digital context, learning is usually self-directed without a learning supervisor or trainer. In addition, digital learning is characterized by multimedia content, i.e. several senses and cognitive processing channels are addressed simultaneously. It is important to ensure that there is no over-demand or flood of information on the individual processing channels.”
