Intellum is proud to stand with other practitioners and researchers at the intersection of computer science, the learning sciences, and human-computer interaction. 

Our learning science practice works closely with Intellum clients, non-client initiatives, and academic institutions to better understand the cognitive and social processes that result in the most effective learning. 

We use this knowledge to constantly improve our own products and processes, while positively impacting broader instructional practices, so we can help people learn more deeply.

Latest Research Report

In the winter of 2023, Learning Science commissioned a study to evaluate the economy’s impact on learning professionals and to pinpoint the education practices that delivered the most positive business outcomes. To this end, researchers conducted an online survey of 445 full-time U.S. employees involved in delivering workplace education. Here's some of what we uncovered:

  • 33% of respondents saw their team’s budget reduced; 15% lost team members due to a reduction in force.
  • 12% of learning professionals feel they’re capable of making a bigger impact, but lack the knowledge and skills to do so.
  • 19% more likely to exceed business goals with a dedicated executive sponsor.

Whether your organization educates one audience (e.g., employees) or multiple audiences (e.g., employees, customers, and partners), one thing is certain: your education initiatives need to drive measurable results. Download the 2023 report and find out how to structure your organizational education initiatives to close employee, customer, and partner skills gaps—and thrive in an uncertain economy.

Research Currently Underway

Our research initiatives strive to uncover how learning advances real-world outcomes in two key areas: customer education and workplace learning. 

Nanolearning Durations

We are examining how carefully-developed nanolearning segments can drive enrollment and completion behaviors by identifying the optimal duration for those segments.

The Impact of Notifications

We are examining how platform-driven learner notifications can drive enrollment and completion behaviors and we are coupling our own research with evidence-based best practices in notification implementation.

Learning Science Weekly

Learning science is a multidisciplinary field that draws from decades of research and practice in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, education, computer science, and linguistics. But this rigorous field of study has remained largely inaccessible to education, L&D, and field enablement professionals. Until now. 

Every week the Learning Science Weekly newsletter, sponsored by Intellum, translates cutting-edge research into actionable insights and research-backed, evidence-based best practices that will help you deliver more effective educational experiences.
