AUGUST 19, 2011  Content Curation
Content curation as defined by Rohit Bhargava in a 2009 blog post titled, “Manifesto for the Content Curator. All debates about using the terms “curation and “curator aside, figuring out ways of “finding, grouping, organizing or sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific issue * is something that all associations should be doing. Because we’re already doing most of it, and it’s a big (maybe even gigantic ) reason our members pay dues to belong to our selective group. Aren’t they?!? Of course they are. Methodically?! Voila!

JULY 7, 2011  Secrets to Successful eLearning Revealed!
They’ve updated their 2009 State of the Sector report — with the all the insight and expertise you’d expect. Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele at Tagoras have been very, very busy these days… We recently noted their updated LMS for Associations Report ( see Tagoras On Target ) and now they’ve done it again. They’ve renamed it the “Association Learning + Technology State of the Sector Report, which bears a bit of attention. Just 15%?!?? Sad, but true. Why so few? Make use of professional instructional design. That explains it! Not tomorrow. Today.

FEBRUARY 5, 2010  LMS = Losing My Smile
Let’s take the data Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele at Tagoras uncovered in their Association Learning Management Systems report (October 2009), which showed that for small associations, the average start-up cost for an LMS was: $50/user/year (at the low end). [Association LMS Vendors, Take Note!]. Every time I see a report that shows what an organization can expect to spend on an LMS (learning management system), I lose my smile. Worse, I want to hang my head and weep. Those prices! But wait — there’s more!! Notice the word “employees ? Sounds reasonable. Ready?

SEPTEMBER 29, 2009  What Makes Online Learning Effective?
Isn’t this the million-dollar question? couple hundred thousand, maybe? Maybe the answer is only worth a few hundred dollars.). Whatever the value, a variation of this question has generated a terrific discussion in the ASTD LinkedIn group. The original post from Donna Gilliland, President of MOSTraining, Inc. read: “Online Live Training: what challenges do you face? Have you started delivering training live online training yet? If so, which of the following tools to you use?. She listed: GoToWebinar. WebEx. Telspan. Others? . Tools/technology. What’s missing here?!? Period.

JANUARY 17, 2010  Learning Team of One
For example, one of the ASTD 2009 BEST Award winners is VF Asia Limited, a business unit of VF Corporation. For the details, please see the October 2009 issue of T+D. So many of the resources available about elearning seem to be directed primarily at organizations (especially for-profits) with a large training staff that it’s hard to implement much of what they do — couldn’t we do so much more with bags of money and rooms full of learning specialists? And how do they do it with a tight budget and high urgency for producing timely training? They had a clear plan.

OCTOBER 28, 2009  Finally! Help Selecting an LMS Has Arrived!
Kudos and deep thanks to Jeff Cobb and his team at Tagoras for the significant effort they undertook in compiling, editing, and publishing their report, “Association Learning Management Systems.. Eleven companies responded to an extensive list of questions about their systems, resulting in a report of 400+ pages that include tables, profiles, and product reviews, as well as a valuable list of questions you can use or modify as you investigate your LMS options. How much for such a valuable report?!? With apologies to Tagoras, I’ll be frank: it’s CHEAP!! Can’t be done.

ALEARNING  How Did You Do in 2009?
| THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2009
Some of us see the end of the calendar year as a good time to evaluate learning against established industry standards. Benchmarking. Figuring out how we did. Where we stand. And from that, plotting a path through the next year. If your association dedicates more than 30% to alearning, congratulate yourself for moving online for the convenience of your members! – If you’ve experienced a return on your elearning investment, you’ve met the benchmark. Only 0.9% reported losing money and fewer than 4% reported breaking even. Don’t know if you’re generating revenue? MORE >>
ALEARNING  ROI? ROE? EVA?

In the eLearning Guild’s 2009
white paper, “Building the Business Case for e-Learning Temple Smolen writes, “In an April 2009
survey of eLearning Guild members, 48% reported a positive return on investment (ROI) from e-Learning, while only 5% reported no return or a negative ROI. In fact, not only do most members generate a positive return, but 50% report a ROI greater than 15%.. For advocates of alearning, this is a great sliver of data. But is ROI always the best thing to be measuring? The formula for ROI is Net Benefit/Cost. Twelve? MORE >>
ALEARNING  14 Things We Can Learn from the BEST – Part 1
| SUNDAY, JANUARY 3, 2010
What started as a short list grew, so here’s the first of four posts summarizing 14 Things We Can Learn from ASTD’s 2009
BEST Award winners. Who doesn’t have the goal of being even better in 2010? Sure, we have our internal goals, but what haven’t we thought of? Are there other opportunities out there we haven’t thought of? What can we learn from those considered the BEST in education and training? What can the award-winning organizations teach us? That the awards are all about employee/staff training is something we should give hard thought to. They all: . MORE >>
ALEARNING  Stealing from the Rich…
| FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2012
And because the series we did that dissected what the ASTD BEST Award winners did in 2009
had so many hits (and still does), I figure it’s worth our time to look at some other companies, what they’re doing, and what we can learn from them. Stealing what works in elearning from the rich corporations, that is… First, my usual caveat: we’re not corporations. We shouldn’t assume that everything they do is worthy of emulation by associations and other nonprofits. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from them, right? Source? Why not? If not, why not?
