LMS RFP

For example: (LMS OR "Learning Management System") AND ("Request for Proposal" OR RFP OR "Request for Quotation" OR RFQ) AND (filetype:PDF OR filetype:DOC OR filetype:RTF) will get you an interesting list. Again - I would really welcome: Links to good templates or example RFPs. Suggestions on what else should go in here. LMS RFP Resources John Theis wrote a dissertation on the contents of 25 RFPs submitted to an LMS vendor. His dissertation contains some interesting information. The best stuff is found on pages 36-42, 54, and 56-75, but don't miss John's Dedication.

e-Learning's two tiers

Clive on Learning

The form may be a simple interactive tutorial, a short video, a podcast, a screen capture movie, a PowerPoint or a PDF. Two discussions this week, one with rapid e-learning specialist Kineo 's Steve Rayson and the other with virtual world developer Caspian 's Graeme Duncan, has crystallised for me how the bespoke/custom e-learning market in the UK is evolving with a distinct two-tier structure: The lower tier is 'good enough' digital content, designed to communicate simple information or provide basic knowledge without fuss.

How Valid are Research Results? And What to Do

17 2007 - when their satisfaction score is being reported so low. Cornerstone's 'new breed' of integrated talent management is not only in demand among its customer base, but is also catching on across the industry.” Josh Bersin, Bersin & Associates Further, according to a PDF sent to me it appears that Bersin's research rated Cornerstone as having market leading customer satisfaction and customer loyalty numbers. Based on my post - LMS Satisfaction Features and Barriers - I received some feedback that the numbers didn't correspond to what other research has shown.

ChinesePod

Clive on Learning

For $9 a month you get PDF transcripts and other goodies; for $30 you also get a wide range of guides, exercises, games and tests; for a much heftier $200 you get the human touch with a needs analysis, study plan and someone to practise with. I've been exploring ChinesePod , a site for those interested in learning the Chinese language. And of course the Chinese are learning English by the truckload. ChinesePod (there's a Spanish language version too, SpanishSense ) has a very Web 2.0 feel about it. Are podcasts enough? Does the visual/written element matter?

Dump the drone

Clive on Learning

It's only an 8-page PDF so don't accept any 'haven't got the time excuses'. If you were to ask a sample of e-learners in your organisation to describe their experience of e-learning in one word, there's a fair chance the most common response would start with a 'b'. And that's not 'beautiful', 'blistering', 'blinding' or even the just about acceptable 'beneficial'. It's quite likely to be 'boring'. If that's the case for you, you could do better than to provide your writers with a copy of Cathy Moore's Dump the Drone. People like to see people," he said, and I came to agree with him.

Design: Compliance Complaints

Kapp Notes

Well, yes it might be mandated but that doesn't mean it needs to be "death by powerpoint" Or "PDF on a stick" (that is a PDF document that a learner reads and signs off on to indicate they've been trained). Compliance training is seen by many organizations as a "necessary evil." Training that is mandated. Compliance training can and should be made attractive, relevant and interesting. Here are common problems and suggested solutions. The format seems to be a page of text followed by two more pages of text followed by a multiple choice question (repeat until final mastery test).let's

Heutagogy applies a holistic approach to developing learner capabilities, with learning as an active and proactive process, and learners serving as “the major agent in their own learning, which occurs as a result of personal experiences” (Hase & Kenyon, 2007, p. pdf It is no longer very important (at least in most occasions) to be trained on specifics.

routinely create PDF's similar to the one page guides and make them available on the company intranet which works out great but after looking at the one page guides I know I can do better. I stumbled upon Tim's Blog which is chock full of “One Page Guides” that are simple, one page job aids covering a variety of topics. Browsing through these one page guides reminded me that simpler is better most of the time. well designed job aid such as the one page guides can be much more effective than a day long training course.

Marrying Rapid e-Learning and Informal Learning

Vignettes Learning

While we use simple and less expensive tools for references like PDF , Word, PPT , etc. It is an interesting conversation to marry formal and informal learning and rapid e-learning. agree with Patrick Dunn that rapid e-learning is largely misused. Rapid e-learning should mean rapid application of learning on the job. We should only apply high quality media, interaction, engaging design, and complex software on the 5-25% content. This approach drastically cut development time and cost and makes the content help learners to find the "application points", rapidly.
