The 10 basic online tools every trainer and online facilitator should know

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

(photo by Kitty Terwolbeck ) There are lots of online tools that you can use for free or for very little money. Every week I try some new tools (like this week vialogues ) and honestly? Occasionally the high number of tools and possibilities make me restless. I have a tools list (both in a booklet and online in diigo) to try out and I never find the time or have the idea that I''ve tested enough tools. I therefore completely understand that facilitators of learning and change processes and trainers/teachers can''t see the wood for the trees. A short description below. to make it very practical.

From intuition to knowing for sure: a case of applying learning analytics at course level

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Blogpost is written in collaboration with Francois Walgering from MOOCfactory and Sibrenne Wagenaar from Ennuonline. More and more trainers and facilitators use online platforms for online interaction to facilitate learning. This is akin to face-to-face facilitation but also has its own dynamics. For example, how do you know if an online article is read? Which participants connect online?

(almost) Everything about video for learning professionals

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

January was our #videoleren theme on Twitter with the Ennuonline twitter tips. In this blogpost I do a wrap up of this theme. There is a lot of attention for video and use of multimedia online, after all youtube has almost 300 million view hours per day.Gemma Critchley talked about emoties while learning: "people will forget what you said but they will not forget how you made them feel". Tie a tie?

Twiitering = learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I often have conversations about the role of social media in learning processes. Sometimes people might say: ' Ok, but twitter is not learning. How can you learn from 140 characters?! The theory about learning you embrace determine how you look at social media and its importance (or unimportance). From a behaviourism point of view, twitter might not be very relevant as a means for learning.

What is really changing in the way we learn as a result of new technologies?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Last week I attended the Learning and Technologies conference in Londen. Like last year, it was great. Inspiring talks and the Dutch delegation (almost 25 people!) offered a nice network to make sense of new ideas. Furthermore we had Friday to explore Londen. Before the conference I attended a session about storyboarding. I wanted to pilot a video ' beyond the talking head '. What do you think?

A world full of knowmads in 2020?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

John Moravec was the first to coin the term knowmad in the book Knowmad society. In this Tedtalk John poses an interesting statement about the 'rise of the knowmad'. " In 2020 45% of the workforce will be knowmads ". Eh 2020? That's already in 3 years time! Hurry up? On what basis is this 45% calculated? Who are these other 55%? And what type of organization is attractive for knowmads?

So many learning style tests, so little time.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I went looking for a learning style test for an online course. I thought a learning style test was a nice ramp up for an exercise where people had to blog about their own facilitator style - from the idea that it is good to know your own preferences and biases as a trainer/facilitator. Hoping this awareness help you to try to stretch and integrate opposite preferences in your design. My take aways?

Social media and reflection: marriage or divorce?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Social media in organisations has been a difficult topic and sometimes bothers me. When I am invited to do introductory sessions in organisations, I feel like I'm converting people to use MORE social media, whereas I don't believe it is a matter of using as many social media as possible. Reflection is needed in order to learn from the past. Most of the time a smarter use of media may help.

About blogging, tunneling visions and knowledge entrepreneurship

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I had the pleasure to attend a presentation by Julie Ferguson. Julie is doing research for the university of Amsterdam (VU) into (micro-)blogging as part of her PdD research about knowledge and power in the development sector. The research has not yet been published. It analyzes the behaviour and perception of the bloggers. She has some remarkable conclusions. Facilitators: we are needed!

The influence of social media for learning - technology is more than just a means to a goal

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I often hear: "technology is just a tool and should be the starting point, let's start with the goal and the technology will follow". The tech does not matter if we achieve our goal." In this blog post, I argue that technology is much more than a means. Social technology is a driving force behind social learning. Technology is means or a goal? And if Ford would have started with the goal?

Learning by coincidence on Twitter

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

(cartoon via Rob Speekenbrink ) I get involved in lots of discussions whether Twitter - is learning (or nonsense). People are sceptical on what you can learn through 140 characters. Often I answer that you definitely learn through twittering because you can link through to blogposts, articles etc. Basically defending the 140 characters. We visited open days, evenings for parents, classes.

Non-verbal communication for online facilitators

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

At the University I did communication studies as one of my subjects and I always liked non-verbal communication. As someone who is really enormously mirroring others non-verbal behaviours - it made me notice how often I do this. For instance when someone folds her arms and we have an intense conversation, I am also folding my arms. So how does this work for online facilitators and trainers.

Finding the perfect learning platform in 5 steps

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

After the holidays I have been bumping into the same issue with different clients: "Which platform you choose for a online part of a learning trajectory as trainer/facilitator? " It is already clear that you want to combine online learning with face-to-face meetings, you need a private online platform and there is also a budget for it. You can be practical by asking some experienced people.

Doctors versus internet: who is better at diagnosing?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I have dreamed for a long time of organizing our own MOOC. I was waiting to somebody to pay me for it, but nobody did. The challenge for in a MOOC is to facilitate a large group process online. We have just completed our knowmad MOOC with 637 people. This topic was knowmadic working and learning. At a peaktime, there were 203 people online simultaneously. It felt like a continuous party.

Brain science meets social media

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Brain learning is currently a hot topic in the Netherlands amongst learning professionals. I read the book Brein@work van Ria van Dinteren en Nina Lazeron. They interviewed various scientists and are translating new insights from brain science into practical consequences for organising effective learning situations. An example: sleep is very important for processing new information and new stimuli.

Develop creativity and empathy through opposing perspectives

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I have been rethinking my focus. I started working within the framework of knowledge management and communities of practice. But knowledge management in the Netherlands is still associated with databasebuilders. And communities are hijacked by the marketeers for client communities. The core of my work is about 'the learning professional' / the innovative professional / the creative professional.

Interactive and engaging webinars- between who and who?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I'm currently using Webex for webinars, unfortunately we discovered (quite late!) that there is a maximum of 7 active microphones, and the first time we had serious problems. Now we found out that we can share the microphones, after people raise their (virtual) hands. Sounds stupid and I feel stupid. You probably think that we should have done a test, but we did a test (with less than 7 people).

Tips for online decision making

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

We started our fourth learning trajectory about learning with social media in the Netherlands ' Leren en veranderen met sociale media '. It is amazing to see the energy of the people who dive into the first online block. They complain about the time it takes, but they are the ones investing a lot of time in all the assignments! It is very hard to make decisions online in asynchronous discussions.

Working with visuals as powerful learning activity

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Talking about practice what you preach! This is really what we did during the webinar about using visuals with Nancy White. We were choosing images, discussing images, drawing pictures alone and drawing pictures together. It was an eye-opener that working with visuals is much more than selecting a nice image to illustrate your text: drawing can be a powerful learning intervention.

Introducting social media in organisations to improve the learning function is more difficult than you may think.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

For some time now, I have an evaluation report of an organization that has experience with the introduction of social media (like wikis and blog) in the organization since 2009. The report is very interesting, because it shows that the actual practice of changing habits in organisations is very hard! They allowed me to blog about it and I think it has some valuable lessons like shape such a process as a real change trajectory (I'm personally convinced about this).

Social media: 4 opportunities for secondary education

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Not too long ago I went to an evening session about social media at the secondary school of my daughter. It struck me how the subject of social media is approached from fear. I was very happy when I was invited to do three sessions for the teachers of a secondary school myself. You can imagine that it was not about fear, but about the 4 opportunities that social media offer. Below you will find my presentation in Dutch. Twitter was popular, but also RSS readers like igoogle were appreciated, to follow a few interesting sites or blogs. Now a lot of questions are received by email. do you read?).

Redesign of face-to-face learning programmes into blended learning - an example in the Netherlands

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I worked with a team of an internal academy to redesign their learning programs into powerful blended products. The challenge is ofcourse not to make a programme blended because it is fashionable but to improve the programme. Hence the first step we took was to think about the value of blended in-house learning programmes. The training that we redesigned was a three-day face-to-face event.
