Reviews and Testimonials

In 13 chapters, business, workforce development, technology, education, and other researchers from the US, Asia, Turkey, and Australia explore the design strategies and methodologies for distributed workforce training, with a focus on information and communication technologies. They discuss the conceptual and applied strategic frameworks used in remote workforce training, such as open systems, badging and open badging, gamification and 3D, and learning-support managers, as well as the strategic advantages of e-learning, approaches that encourage occupational satisfaction, trainee reactions, learning perception, and training transfer, and the design of online policy compliance training in higher education. They present examples of training in different contexts, such as for trainers, teachers, and police; analytical tools that can be used to analyze remote team dynamics, such as social network diagrams, the use of Maltego Radium to understand stranger small world networks online, and tools used to gather open-source intelligence to profile entities in public electronic spaces; and innovations like an open training community and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
