    [2009] LearnTrends 2009: Balance, web 2.0, Internet Time Alliance, DAU
    George Siemens began the day by challenging us to see the world as a set of trade-offs. What’s the optimal balance point? Asking people to jot ideas on the white board, the line that divides presenter from audience began to blur. We’re all audience; we all presenters; it shifts back and forth. Few things are black or white; most are shades of gray. As George said, it’s nutty for only one person to do the talking among a group of 125 people. Group scribbling on the white board proved a catalyst to discussion. As with all of our presentations this week, you had to be there.

    [2009] Do learners really need learning objectives?
    Anyone who is a student of instructional design has heard of Robert Gagne’s nine events of instruction. In fact, when designing a course, most of us make quite sure we incorporate Gagne’s instruction event #2: (inform learners of objectives) right away. In our attempt to follow the rule, we often think less about HOW we share the learning objectives and focus more on simply listing them…in that dreaded bulleted list we introduce with the following words: “After completing this course, learners will…blah blah blah.” Why do we do this? What does it really achieve? That soon stopped.

    I think it is safe to say that for most of us the personal computer is the first place we go when we are looking for web-based information; however, new web-ready mobile devices are emerging with increased speed and are blurring the line of what traditionally constitutes a viable endpoint for digital content. Have you seen the new Verizon netbook ? Is it a laptop, a souped-up PDA? Neither, it’s a “ netbook ”—netbooks have been around for awhile now, but the fact that this one was selling for under $200 definitely caught my eye. sign of things to come? What do you think?

    [2009] 2009: year of the tweet
    Twitter has significantly change how I communicate online. Though I registered in 2007, after having tried tried out Jaiku, I didn’t really adopt micro-blogging until mid 2008. This past year I made around 5,000 Tweets or about 13 a day. Twitter’s constraint of 14o characters is its greatest asset. You can only get one thought or comment out at a time. Once you get used to the medium, it’s much easier than trying to write a blog post, which of course is easier than writing a feature article, let alone a book. Mavens are the senders and receivers of information.

    Perhaps this is the annual right of passage in the field when Cammy Bean and I get into a "degree vs non-degree" in instructional design discussion. She (and many others) feel that a degree is not really necessary to practice instructional design and some even assert that a non-degreed instructional designer is, by definition, better than someone with a degree.just because they don't have a degree.I can't even get my head around that argument. Oh, contrar, that is precisely why we need formal degrees because the landscape is changing. Without a solid foundation, houses collapse. I've seen it.

    This past week, I attended the SharePoint 2009 conference in Las Vegas. I’ll provide some feedback on that particular release in another blog posting (read Bill Simser for now) but what the conference itself got me thinking about was that, thankfully, the standalone LMS is definitely going to become redundant. Dinosaur. Soviet Union. Saturn Car. Hierarchy. you get the picture). Sadly, there are too many organizations like this out there. The LMS should no longer be thought of as a destination for the learner. Jon Husband does a good job of illustrating this over here.

    [2009] Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
    Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences. In turn, teachers enthusiastically transformed themselves into facilitators , guiding and coaching the participants to inquire, explore, discover and even generate new learnings. Slippery slope.

    Sumeet Moghe, 2009. We explored the waterfall approach towards elearning development in a prior post of this series. As you will notice in the above representation of the model, the issues are: Too much time gets spent in upfront design and planning when all of this is quite likely to change. Customers get to see working elearning pretty late in the process - as a consequence we run the risk of an endless cycle of amendments. Can we reduce flab in our analysis and design phase? Can we create more opportunities for customer feedback? believe the answer is a resounding "Yes!"

However, when it comes down to it, Moodle met most of the requirements I had listed out and met those requirements at the lowest cost by a long shot. However, Moodle is not all rainbows and unicorns.

The basic question is: How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organization? Which provides us this month's big question: Presenting the Value of Social Media for Learning? Let me provide some flavor for this question straight from someone who asked me about this: My coworkers are Baby Boomers and Traditionals. They either haven't opened their mind to the idea or really care. In essence, if it is not classroom, they are really not interested in it. to management?

    [2009] Leveraging the Full Learning Continuum
    Formal learning (structured and designed classroom or e-learning programs) has been taking a beating these days.  The informal learning movement, powered by constructivist concepts of learning and web 2.0 applications is well underway. Carl Sauliner almost got his virtual head lopped off in the blogosphere for suggesting that predictions of the death of classroom training may be premature ( Long Live Instructor Led Training). too believe that facilitating informal learning in the workplace is critical and has been long overlooked by the Learning function.  Learning by doing.

    [2009] When it's just so obvious NOT to train it's painful to watch it happen
    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. Bingo!

    [2009] Podcasting for E-Learning: Introduction to Audio Production
    Having outlined the conceptual terrain of podcasting, it's time to look at the nuts and bolts of podcast production. In this part of the series, I won't delve too deeply into script-writing: I'll return to that subject in a later series of blog posts, but if you have a look at my series of articles on instructional design to understand my orientation on theoretical and pedagogical approaches to this activity. Today, I'm going to talk about digital audio, and the basic hardware and software you'll need to begin creating your own podcasts. But we’re not going to do that today. Figure 1.

    [2009] The Agile Elearning Design Manual - Agile Re-explained
    Sumeet Moghe, 2009. In my last post we looked at the problems with our existing approach to building elearning. In summary, the problems we noticed were: A lack of shared understanding within the team, about the the customer's learning problem. The high risk associated with not having generalists in the team. The delay in seeing working pieces of elearning. The time spent in creating documentation and in analysis. The risk of endless reviews and amendments. In today's post I'd like to introduce Agile thinking. Elearning development isn't very different from Software Development.

    [2009] The Ten Commandments of eLearning
    We discovered ‘The Ten Commandments of eLearning” as elucidated by Cath Ellis and Clive Shepherd. We’ve decided to follow in the same vein and list our commandments. First off, we thought ten is too many to remember, so we cut it down to five. There are some similarities to Cath and Clive’s commandments but that is to be expected given the nature of this post. Pedagogy First, Technology Second – Cath put it first on her list, we do as well. Use technology, leverage it, but always remember it’s a means to an end. Remember, technology can’t replace learning, only augment and support it.
