    [2009] The Agile Elearning Design Manual - Think Small (Iterations, Action Maps, Storyboards, and Mini-Modules)
    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!"

    This post is triggered by Sumeet Moghe’s My Take on the “Typical E-learning Projects”. You have to see his post first. Why what happens happens the way it does? The customer is typically in a hurry to have the project delivered. Timeline is always crunched. The key reasons are: 1. Rapid change of content around which the training is being designed 2. Need for the training to be in place before the product/service/whatever is rolled out to all 3. Realization that a training is needed at all comes a little late in the day 4. What ensues? What gets sacrificed? What happens next? Still good.

    So LinkedIn now allows you to update your status with your Twitter updates. There are already applications that help you post your Twitter updates to Facebook. And then there’s FriendFeed that allows you to consolidate all your social activity and push that on Facebook and other social media sites. Not to mention other aggregation services, RSS feeds, email alerts, etc. Seems like a cool thing, surely. Well almost.

    [2009] Estimating course development times
    I have seen a lot of estimates out there regarding development times per hour of e-learning content. It baffles me how some designers, not all, can rattle off "150 hours to develop an hour long course." There may be times where we are pushed in a corner and we need to quickly estimate development time without all the information we require, but to get a realistic estimate I suggest we consider the following: The complexity of the content. Is there any content or literature already written that may be helpful to developing the e-learning content? Multimedia required (e.g. video or audio).

So I'm going to propose some roles as I understand them, in the hopes that some day hiring managers will be able to articulate better what they want/need in terms of talent for their training departments or projects. Note that one person can hold multiple roles. These are ROLES not PEOPLE. And most of the time these terms are not used with any degree of rigor or standardization. NET, Java, PHP, etc.).

    I recently had the opportunity for a hands-on demonstration of some new mind-mapping software called Wisdomap , aimed specifically at the education market. Although the initial focus has been teachers in the 16-18 age group, this is a piece of software that could easily cross over into education generally and into workplace learning. Here's what I really like about this software: Each map has its own unique URL for sharing with students and others. This allows the map to form a navigational device for exploring detailed content. This is definitely worth trying as a PowerPoint alternative.

    [2009] Brain rule #10
    Rule 10: Vision trumps all other senses In chapter 10 of Brain Rules, John Medina makes the simple but nevertheless powerful point that pictures are worth a thousand words. Some extracts: "We do not see with our eyes. We see with our brains. We actually experience our visual environment as a fully analysed opinio n about what the brain thinks is out there." " "If you think the brain has to devote to vision a lot of its precious thinking resources, you are right on the money. It takes up about half of everything you do, in fact." We pay lots of attention to orientation.

    Rule 9: Stimulate more of the senses My review of John Medina's book continues with this exploration of the power of multi-sensory learning experiences: "By the time we came out of the trees, our ancestors were encountering a multisensory world and were already champions at experiencing it." " "You might hypothesise that our learning abilities are increasingly optimised the more multisensory the environment becomes." " "Extra information given at the moment of learning makes learning better. Multisensory experiences are, of course, more elaborate."

    [2009] Brain rule #6
    Rule 6: Remember to repeat This chapter of John Medina's book focuses on long-term memory and the processes required if learning is to be lasting. Here are a few highlights: Working memory has a limited capacity and a limited duration. If the information is not transformed into a more durable form, it will soon disappear. At relatively early periods post-learning (say minutes to hours to days), retrieval systems allow us to reproduce a fairly specific and detailed account of a given memory. Thinking or talking about an event immediately after it has occurred enhances memory for that event.

Whether I sustain this remains to be seen. John is a developmental molecular biologist (whatever that means) and serious about distinguishing brain myths from brain facts, so I've got some confidence in his work.

    Sumeet Moghe, 2009. The success of your Knowledge Management or online learning initiative depends on how well you can engage different people in your organization and really, how apt is your mode of delivery, to the content you're delivering. Very simply, the purpose of any online learning/ knowledge sharing implementation is to make capabilities explicit in an organization. I've been thinking about this recently and I think the Dreyfus Model of Skills Acquisition is a great way to articulate the different levels of expertise in a certain area, in an organization.

    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!"

    University of Canberra, November 2009. Leonard Low. ABSTRACT: Since July 2007 there have been more mobile phones in operation in Australia than there are people ; and when you add in the other mobile, digital devices that ordinary Australians own – such as media players, digital cameras, and portable computing devices – it is apparent that there are tremendous tools for personal and lifelong learning in the pockets of our students.  Author’s Notes.

    Testing is one of those tasks, like writing documentation, that most of us tend to avoid until abolutely necessary. good test process, however, should help to ensure that you deliver exactly what the client ordered, and allow you to prioritise fixing problems in the your system. Depending on the size of your project, and the number of interlinked systems, you may have a number of different stages of testing activity, such as: Unit testing - looking at each component part of one system. Unit link testing - looking at whether the "units" fit into their host system OK. Testlink is such a product.

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.

The answer is simple; Moodle gives you the most bang for your buck, especially if you don't have a lot of bucks. huge factor in my case is that I had zero budget to implement eLearning in my organization so I didn't have many options. 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.
