eLearning Topics

Tony Karrer

Topics by Year By selecting 2009 , I've selected a subset of the content, but in this case it's basically content associated with this year. Year by Topic You can also go the other way to see things like selecting Twitter and you can see that the associated years are: 2009 2020 2008 2020? 2001 2002 2000 2003 2004 are associated years) virtual classroom – still current strategy – old flash – still current performance – old – not sure why – shouldn't this be a perennial topic? I've done a few posts in the past that take a look at the topics that are Hot Topics in Training.

Survey Says.

Kapp Notes

Estimation Methods for Developing E-Learning and while the formulas and ideas in the article are up-to-date (written in 2003), one section really needs to be updated. One article that I wrote seems to get more attention than any other, it is called How Long Does it Take? That is the section on Industry Standards. have a feeling some of those numbers may have changed but I'd like to seek confirmation. So, if you are a designer or developer of e-learning, please take a moment to complete a survey that will help update those numbers. Here is a link to the survey.

Imprompu thoughts on m-learning

Clive on Learning

wrote an article on the subject called M is for Maybe back in 2003 and this has proved to be a realistic perspective. This week I was lucky enough to present at the World Summit on the Information Society, hosted by the ITU, a UN agency, in Geneva. At the very last minute I was drafted into a panel discussion on 'ICT applications for a better life,' with a focus on the impact of mobile devices on many aspects of our lives, including learning. All very good, but I didn't know I'd have to make a short presentation on the subject. This is where e-learning is going, full stop.

Long Live?

Tony Karrer

percent in 2003 and 70.58 percent of all training in 2003 to 6.39 Just got through reading - Long Live Instructor-Led Learning - by Saul Carliner, who is a person I know, like and respect. Wow, did he step in it on this one. Was his purpose link-bait by putting up something that is so horribly wrong as to cause us to want to respond? He had me scratching my head about Long Live what? Death of the Classroom? You sometimes will run across posts or presentations that have the title – the Death of the Classroom. would argue that today all classroom or courseware should be questioned.
