At uQualio, where we make eLearning authoring creation softwareeLearning authoring creation software , we were simply delighted to have the opportunity to have a chat with Dave Online on his own podcast, The Upskill Podcast .
Our CPO, Christian Bjerre Nielsen , and Dave had a super constructive and interesting conversation, where they talked about the current trends ongoing in the EdTech space, what exactly is video-based Learning and most importantly, what is eLearning, and how we here at uQualio© believe the video microlearning is the future of learning and training.
Make sure to tune in and let us know what you think!
Dave (D): Hello and welcome to The Upskill Podcast! I’m here today and it’s my privilege today to be with you Christian. Hello, nice to meet you, and welcome to The Upskill Podcast.
Christian (C): Hello Dave thanks for joining and I look forward to talking to you and to the audience.
D: And the way we met on LinkedIn; I saw your post on LinkedIn, right?
C: Yeah, that was a very interesting post about what 5G would do for education and I thought it was relevant to discuss it and then you made a note that I didn’t understand, and then suddenly now we’re sitting here talking about what is the future for some of the things we’re seeing in E-learning.
D: Exactly! And it’s fantastic to have you here you’re based in Denmark, Copenhagen?
C: That’s correct.
D: I’m in Hanoi, Vietnam. So today we’re going to talk about video-based learning for my listeners. Of course, I want to represent my listeners, make sure that we can break down the topic and make it as interesting as possible so please by all means if you could start off and tell us a bit about your career in a nutshell first of all and then we can move into video-based learning .
C: Yeah, I’ll do that. So I started out as an electrical engineer and ended up working in software even though that I thought I was going to design power station and transmission lines and things like that I ended up in software this is where I’ve been working for all my career that is almost 30 years now I started out in software for financial products and took also a period where I was hitting up a learning company and actually I think this was back in 2000 so that’s like 19 years ago I was one of the first start-ups inside the e-learning or online reading areas in Denmark we tried it out, unfortunately, we had an incident in 2001 that killed the market and we were probably five years too early let’s see the iPhone came out in 2007 so we were six years too early with online learning mobile learning items from the device. So that is sort of the background and for the past two years, I’ve been working here for uQualio heading up the product development and being responsible for the software quality in our video e-learning platform that we’re offering as a cloud service.
