    I wrote the post " Online Induction: What can possibly go wrong? as I was getting myself and the materials ready for a week of induction activities for new students to the online degree programme at Bournemouth University.

So, with a week to recover, reflect, and collect the stragglers, how did it go? They then linked this page to the wiki home page, so other students could find and leave a comment on it.

Course Outline / Storyboarding. Know the audience. Find good SMEs. Always create an outline of the course. Storyboarding allows you to structure content flow. Decide what knowledge/skills need to be taught first. SMEs can take a glance at the flow and content. Content creating will go more quickly. it’s faster than creating content and then starting over).

    The amount of time, effort and money wasted on formal ILT training prior to rollout or upgrade of enterprise platforms (particularly ERM and CRM) and other new software systems is really quite amazing. Some managers and L&D people just don’t seem to get it. It reminds me of the remarkable insight of the author Aldous Huxley when he said “I see the best, but it’s the worse that I pursue” The evidence has been around for a long time that formal training on detailed task and process-based activities in advance of the need to carry out the task or use the process is essentially useless.

    Thinking of converting your Slide Presentation from drab to fab (I always wanted to write that.) Well here are some resources that can be of assistance. So, Interactivity by Design is an older book and not specifically geared toward a slide show (it is focused on designing visually appealing e-learning). But it is well written with wonderful examples. strongly recommend it if you are creating PowerPoint, Keynote or e-learning presentations/training.

    [2009] Are Your E-Learning Courses Pushed or Pulled?
    Tidbits: I’m trying something new for the ASTD 2009 International Conference & Exposition. Here’s the challenge for many of us. We want to make our courses engaging and interactive, yet sometimes the content or the time pressures of work don’t make that easy. The default position for many elearning courses is to merely push the information out to the learners. The end result is that the course is heavy on information and light on interaction. By changing the way you structure the information, you can quickly build the framework for more engaging and interactive courses.

    [2009] E-learning on a shoestring
    E-learning in the workplace used to be the preserve of the large corporate or public body. Only they were able to afford the necessarily substantial investments in learning platforms and content development and had the large audiences against which these investments could be amortised. And only these major employers had the specialist technical skills and large l&d departments needed to support these investments. Smaller organisations were essentially priced out. But this year we have seen a major shift. Many of my colleagues are doing the same.

    Tidbits: Next week, I’ll be in Washington DC at the ASTD 2009 International Conference & Exposition. In a previous post, we looked at how you can make your elearning courses more effective and engaging by getting your learners to pull the course content rather than you just pushing it out to them. great way to create a pull-type course is build it around problem-solving scenarios. scenario can put the course content into a context that is relevant to the learners because they can use the information in a real world setting.

    [2009] The Myth of "Best Practices"
    I get lots of requests for list of "best practices".in e-learning, in the virtual classroom, in instructional design, in classroom presentation. Here's the deal: there's no such thing. A "best practice" is best only in the precise, specific context in which it exists. don't recall who first offered this analogy, but think of it this way: what works in my marriage won't necessarily work in -- and may even damage -- yours. Even if moved from one situation to another very close one, the odds of transfer being made with practice intact is nil.

    Earlier this week, I attended a Twitter Camp billed Twitter is not for dummies. had the privilege of facilitating one of the breakout sessions, which focused on the business applications of Twitter. We discussed a range of issues around this topic, and we generated some really bright ideas that I feel are worth pursuing in the corporate sector. Some of the ideas specifically relate to e-learning, while others may fall more comfortably into other portfolios. In a nutshell, I see the business applications of Twitter falling into three main categories: 1. External. Internal. Personal. Scanning.

    [2009] Seed, feed, & weed
    In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going.  As many have noted, it’s about moving from a notion of being a builder, handcrafting (or mass-producing) solutions, to being a facilitator, nurturing the community to develop it’s own capabilities.  Jay Cross talks about the learnscape , while I term it the performance ecosystem. The point, however, is from the point of the view of the learner, all the resources needed are ‘to hand’  through every stage of knowledge work. But if you build it, they may not come. Networks take nurturing.

    [2009] Twitter Brings Lower Quality Clicks
    Richard Hoeg points out that for his blog Twitter = High Visits But Low Conversion. Basically, he shows his "referring sites" from Google Analytics for the past two weeks: His conclusion: Folks who visit from Twitter don't visit as many pages and spend less time of the site. Of course, that made me wonder if twitter really was bringing lower quality clicks than other sources. That's contrary to what I would expect. You would think that someone who gets a link referred by someone they know would visit and then look around. It should be pretty qualified. Bloglines also has better numbers.

Well, as a practitioner of both types of teaching I can attest that they are significantly different processes. So if you have never had the opportunity to be a student in an online course or have never had a mentor who can teach how to teach online then where do you gain the knowledge and skills?

The good thing about ten year predictions is that absolutely no-one will remember that you made them. It's easy when projecting ahead to imagine a future which would be entirely of your liking. Wishful thinking is fun but it's hardly useful.

    [2009] E-Learning and the Panopticon
    Bentham developed the idea of the panopticon , a prison design that provided a single central point from which all prisoners/cells/activities could be observed. Many American shopping malls adopted this as a design guide, too.)Foucault Foucault wrote at length of the pervasiveness of the idea -- the need to observe and regulate -- as it extended to other institutions such as hospitals and schools. And it extends to a new realm, now. While the Dean could always drop by the traditional classroom, he/she didn't do it very often, and when it happened you knew he/she was there. That's it.

    [2009] Moodle is an Airport, Not a Total Solution!
    No, it is not an Airport! It is more like a space station ! If you ask a true learning professional, he or she will probably articulate Moodle as a virtual learning environment (VLE) , or course management system (CMS) , or worst case a learning management system (LMS). Whatever Moodle is, in this post Moodle is an 'Airport' (figurative speech that is!). However, I am not going to spend the rest of this post proving the 'Airport' theory, but I will share some of my experiences and ideas on how we can get the best from Moodle, and not fall into the pitfalls (that I have faced over the years).
