    “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela FUTURE LEARNING FINLAND A couple of weeks back (16th September), I attended a Future Learning Finland one-day seminar & networking session.

    [2009] Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning
    I came across this study courtesy of Donald Clark who reviewed it back in early September. It reports on a meta-analysis of more than 1000 studies of online learning conducted between 1996 and 2008, focusing in on those which contrasted online learning with face-to-face instruction. It was published by the US Department of Education in May. The report can be downloaded here. Interpretations of this result, however, should take into consideration the fact that online and face-to-face conditions generally differed on multiple dimensions, including the amount of time that learners spent on task."

To accompany the tables I have written a summary of the market for bespoke content developers, off-the-shelf content providers, authoring tool providers and LMS/LCMS providers. Understandably, it was not possible to obtain figures for all of the top players (Adobe a good example), and open-source providers aren’t likely to figure in a competition based on sales, but the tables still make interesting reading.

The survey canvassed 2019 people working in companies with more than fifty employees, evenly divided across eight European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK). Around half of the respondents say that the formal classroom training they had been given was only useful in parts, with an overwhelming majority (87%) preferring to learn at their own pace.

    I saw an interesting post by Mark Oehlert "Learning 2.0" " and why that name suddenly is torquing me off. Mark's main complaint and one that I've seen voiced before is that people are not really learning differently: I really don't believe that humans are learning differently - meaning, I think we are constituting memories, adapting behavior, practicing new skills - those activities that typically make up learning from the human standpoint - in much the same way as we have for hundreds if not thousands of years.

    I must say that many back-to-school nights are a bit painful. For those of you who are not familiar with this, it's an evening where you go to the school (without your children) and the teachers tell you a little bit about how they will approach the year. This year, I attended three different back-to-school nights for my three children (elementary, middle school and high school). Most teachers hand a sheet with all the information they plan to present (which is good because there are often lots of links and other helpful information). And then they proceed to walk through it.

    I am becoming increasingly aware of the the need to make clear a distinction between the broad concept of digital learning content, in all its many varieties, and the much narrower idea of interactive tutorials of the traditional CBT (computer-based training) variety. This is no more than a natural evolution from their traditional responsibility for the production of PowerPoint slides and handouts which support most classroom events. While some trainers will have the aptitudes and interests which will help them to excel in this area, in most cases this will remain a job for specialists.

    [2009] Implementing New Learning Technology? Choose the Right Pilot Group
    Before a large scale implementation of any new learning technology, you really need to run a pilot group. You need to catch problems on a small scale and then adjust, correct and modify based on the feedback and experience of the pilot group. Skipping a pilot of a new technology is a dangerous gamble. It could be, as they say, "career limiting." So I suggest a carefully chosen pilot group, but, you might ask, what does that pilot group "look like"? Here are some suggestions if your are implementing a virtual learning world or Highly Immersive Vitual Environment (HIVE). Any more ideas?

    I was asked by Trainingzone to provide some tips for bringing the learning benefits to bear of social tools within an organisational context. All comments/feedback welcome.

    [2009] 10 Design Standards to Create Better eLearning!
    If you’re thinking about creating online courses you’ve probably started to think about standards. eLearning content needs to follow standards just like classroom manuals and material. When content is standardized it makes it easier for the learner to understand and quickly process the content. They stop noticing inconsistencies and focus on what you’d really like them to – the meat! Once you’ve come up with your own list of standards, make sure that everyone on the team has them (and lives by them). Don’t be soft. After awhile following the standards will just become second nature.

    Following on from my previous article , below I share some of the key messages that I drew from Day 2 at the LearnX Asia Pacific conference held recently in Sydney… Personal Professional Development: I expected the keynote by Stephen Downes to be the standout session of the event, and I was not disappointed. Instead of focusing on supporting the learning of others, Stephen shifted his focus to how e‑learning professionals can support their own learning. His premis is, bluntly, if you don’t take care of your own career, you risk losing it. Is m-learning just learning hype?

    [2009] Engaging Learning
    How do you systematically design learning experiences that effectively engage the learner? This was the question I set out to address more than 5 years ago.  Based upon years of deep investigation into learning & instruction theories and design processes, and practical experience in designing games, I wrote Engaging Learning: Designing e-Learning Simulation Games. The book was based upon work I’d published as an academic, but was focused very pragmatically.  Subsequently, books by Gee, Shaffer, and others have highlighted the opportunities. Similarly with experience design.

    Enjoying Distance Learning Yes the thing – the thing to bring some emotion and enjoyment to the business of distance learning. Live online learning not only connects people, but is also a powerful aid to learning. How so! Using web conferencing software a teacher/facilitator has a vast array of tools to promote active learning and whether that be face to face or online at a distance there is a vast array of literature that extols the virtues of active learning. What tools say thee! I thought the use of live on line tech was very good and there were no problems. Voice conferencing 2.

    Audio is a crucial aspect of an elearning application. There are lots of courses that do not have audio. These courses can still be good if the learner hates audio. But audio can play an important role in learning. Audio: Sets the tone for your course. If the audio is formal, the theme of your course will be formal. If the audio is humorous, the theme of your course is light and humorous. Adds a personal touch by giving your course a personality. This does not apply for robot-like audio. Captures learner's attention. Completes the learning experience. Using audio in your course can be a gamble.

In the old days, corporate training departments focused solely on workers on the payroll. Most of the effort went into getting novices up to speed and grooming fast-trackers as future leaders.

    According to an article in this week's Economist, A World of Hits , the blockbuster hit is alive and well. In The Long Tail , Chris Anderson (formerly a reporter for the Economist) argued that the easy availability to media content afforded by the internet would shift purchasing power away from mass media and towards the previously hard-to-serve niches. Now to a large extent that has happened and speciality web sites, books and musical offerings are more accessible than ever before, but according to the Economsit, this hasn't affected the big hits.

It’s a convenient abstract that can whitewash a range of unsubstantiated claims and half-truths. But what exactly are adult learning principles? The theory. Malcolm Knowles is widely regarded as the father of adult learning. Since the 1960s, he articulated a distinction between pedagogy (the teaching of children) and andragogy (the teaching of adults). In a nutshell, andragogy boils down to 5 key assumptions: 1. Adult learners are self directed. Adults are problem oriented.

    One aspect of learning online is that the students will feel distant and isolated from not only you (the Institution and staff facilitator) but also from each other. So, what can you do to make them feel included and valued? Firstly, use the induction period to get them used to not only working and talking in the online environment, but also engaging online (collaboration, tests, discussions, etc).

    In preparation for the New Era of Corporate Learning track at Online Educa Berlin , my friend Heike Philp prepared this delightful, six-minute video about Pecha Kucha. You haven’t heard of Pecha Kucha? It’s Japanese for chit-chat. This is an event that’s both fun and practical. PechaKucha was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.

    [2009] Which is Best…Classroom vs Online Training?
    eLearning is better than classroom training! Ok…I’m just being sarcastic. eLearning is actually just different than classroom training. They both have their pros and cons. want to list a few areas that are positive “pros&# for eLearning. Geography. At times you need to training people that are dispersed geographically. They may be in various buildings or working from home. You could send a trainer out to each area or you could have participants come to a central location. There would be considerable travel and time involved. Online training could help. Maintenance. Facilities.

We know there will be work to re-design some of the content etc. However, I am looking for shortcuts. the content has already been approved by SME's. In other words I want to avoid extra steps. Perhaps in MS-Word format.
