2008 Predictions: The Pressure is On!

Kapp Notes

Stephen Downes has upped the ante on predictions for 2008 by creating a report card on predictions of 2007. But I do thank him for the time and effort and it has made me more careful with my 2008 prediction which will be released soon. Here is his post. think he should have submitted the grades for the other bloggers and then let the blogosphere grade his prediction.

Are we nearing entrance to The Matrix?

Kapp Notes

Last month, Brookhaven National Laboratory computer scientist Michael McGuigan told New Scientist magazine he believed a “Matrix”-style virtual world, in which one cannot always distinguish between what's real and what's not, could be up and running in just a few years. The ideas and concepts of the widely popular movie The Matrix are closer than many people think.

Making the Most of Attending a Conference - Ideas Needed

Tony Karrer

In comments in the post Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage , Virginia Yonkers commented: I have to wonder what you expect to get out of a conference. have never gone to a conference with the expectation of learning anything (although it would be a nice aside) but rather to network, discuss issues, and market (myself, my institution, my discipline, my theories/philosophies). and later I just had two papers accepted at the AERA conference in NYC this year and am dreading it. also contacted some of the people whose papers I found interesting. somewhat agree with him on this.

Summer Reading List 2008

Kapp Notes

The first, Tom Peter's book-- Re-Imagine --has a great, magazine-style layout (consider adapting a similar layout for your training materials) and, although it was published in 2003 it is as relevant today as it was in 2003. Ok, I know this is a little late but I have actually been away on vacation using Blogger's advanced posting function for the past two weeks. It is great for vacation by the way. Any way here are some interesting books for summer reading. Because of its unique layout, you don't need to read cover to cover, good to causally pick up from time to time. slight bummer.

Training Magazine's Fave Reads of 2007

Kapp Notes

Recently, the book reviewers of Training Magazine provided a list of all their favorite reads of 2007. I am happy to say that Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning made the list as one of Jane Bozarth's top 5. Here are some of her other picks: Here are the picks of the other two reviewers, Skip Corsini and Melissa Thompson.

Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage

Tony Karrer

In particular, I say that since I've begun to shift my scanning behavior to blogs (scanning is how you stay up-to-speed on a topic) - my rapid fire skimming of blogs via a Skim Dive Skim approach has meant that magazines have mostly become pretty irrelevant to me. will bring copies of magazines on a plane to flip through, but rarely do I read articles in any great depth. But Rick and Donald got me thinking that the reality is that Magazines and Conferences continually must aim at introductory, novice, overview level content. They simply are not worth my Limited Attention.

5 Common Quiz Question Mistakes (And How to Avoid Them)

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Monday, January 07, 2008 The Value of Instructional Designers Ive been having on ongoing conversation with other instructional designers as to whether or not we need to have the technical skill sets to actually build the courses we design. My Predictions for 2008 Instructional Design and Market Sector Differences. The programming skills should be left to the programmers. And I agree.

Here’s How to Measure ROI in the Real World

Rapid eLearning

Magazine has opened up voting for best elearning software. It never fails. Fill a room with instructional designers and you’ll always have someone ask, ‘How do you measure your return on investment." To which I respond, "What are you? An accountant?" As the great elearning pioneer, Dr. Werner Oppelbaumer says, "If you want better ROI, hire smarter people who don’t need training." Here’s the deal with return on investment (ROI). It’s tricky. And considering our economic climate, that’s not a bad idea. Customer Satisfaction = Success.

The big question: What are your predictions for learning in 2008

Clive on Learning

In addressing this month's question on the Learning Circuits Blog , I was tempted by an observation made by Stephen Downes in his review of last year's eLearn Magazine predictions : there are two major types of predictions: one, which identifies a current trend, and says it will continue; and the other, that identifies something novel or unexpected. I'm sorry, but nothing startling there.

Customer Learning

Jay Cross

Customer Learning , CLO magazine, December 2008. Learning is woven into the fabric of every modern business. It’s the way we adapt to change. We’ve got to rid ourselves of the notion that learning is just the chief learning officer’s business. Learning is so much more than that. Learning is the lifeblood of commerce, and it’s every corporate citizen’s job to make it better. It’s time to invite customers to join the party. Learning and social networks and customer communications and partner relations and marketing and sales aren’t islands. It’s all about learning conversations.

This will be fun to use to create different kinds of images.

The big question: making a start in e-learning

Clive on Learning

If you prefer a more informal, self-directed approach, start reading books, blogs and magazines and attending conferences. In the Learning Circuits Blog, the big question for October is "I'm interested in a career in e-learning. What should I do first?" The sources for this will vary enormously from country to country.
