Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools
FEBRUARY 23, 2007
It gives some interesting indications: Number of evaluations by eLearningGuild Members of the use of the types of tools: Courseware authoring tools - 4,000 Rapid eLearning authoring tools - 3,000 MediaWiki - 40 users This analysis is very crude as compared to the rich data. One thing I would say is that I would expect that we'll see adoption of Wiki tools a lot more - but many of the uses will be more as a replacement of web page creation than as a eLearning 2.0 and 2.0. Heidi Fisk suggested I look at the eLearningGuild research reports. kind of approach

DECEMBER 31, 2007
In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. Biggest challenges for 2007? could answer this as the biggest challenges for Learning Professionals generally, and maybe I'll come back and do that, but for now, let me just write what I see as some of my bigger challenges in 2007. found several very high quality developers at several levels in 2007.

Blogs and wikis encourage a different kind of structure, but it is still a structure and we should be conscious of that. Here's a thought! wonder what it would look like if I posted to my blog using the little email feature at the bottom of an item in Google Reader?

Rapid e-learning is swimming in too small a pond
Clive on Learning
APRIL 11, 2007
After all, LTI Magazine defined raid e-learning as "courseware (live or self-paced) developed in less than three weeks, where SMEs act as the primary development resource". If rapid development tools are not made widely available, along with the means of (and removal of barriers to) publishing the output to the organisation's intranet, then SMEs, i.e. us, will have to resort to blogs, wikis, forums and other ways of communicating online content. thought I knew what 'rapid e-learning' meant. Notice how similar these definitions are? Everyone will be a teacher.

Wednesday, May 16, 2007 Debunking the Learning Styles Myth As you may know, Ive been on a focused mission to better understand so-called learning styles and their place -- or not -- in e-Learning. If youre trying to design courseware for a varied audience that youre not even having face-to-face contact with, how do you incorporate learning styles into that?

OpenOffice Impress - a rapid tool?
JULY 25, 2007
It is entirely possible to create blogs, wikis, elearning courseware and even LMSs for free. The open source movement supports pretty much all we have to offer. To design your projects you can replace Adobe with a range of sophisticated desktop apps such as GIMP , Nvu/ Kompozer , Inkscape , Audacity and so on. If you aren't entirely ready to leap on line for your documentation handling courtesy of the likes of Google Docs, you have one very powerful option, OpenOffice. has anyone used that feature? How easily can this be "SCORMed"? Anyone tried that?

The Learning Circuits
DECEMBER 13, 2007
The solutions organizations are looking for include blogs, wikis, and communities of practice. In fact, in the same research I cited above (to be published this Spring), only 19% of organizations feel they are doing a good job at building "high-impact"courseware, 13% at building simulations and other higher fidelity forms of training, and most surprising of all, only 23% feel that they are doing a good job at blended learning. As I read the blog I'd like to post a few updates on our research and predictions for e-learning in 2008. 1. This is not the case. This really suprised me.

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?
