12 eLearning Predictions for 2009
JANUARY 26, 2009
In my post, 2008 2009 - written in December 2008, I looked at how well I did in those predictions, and my results were pretty good, not perfect. Some training will still be preferred face to face such as when team building or in-person soft skills are important, but 2009 will be the year when we realize that we should be justifying any in-person training. Articulate has a great tool set. self-directed learning, quick wins and toolkits all suggest that more web pages - authored via wikis - will be the name of the game in 2009.

Are Your E-Learning Courses Pushed or Pulled?
MAY 19, 2009
Tidbits: I’m trying something new for the ASTD 2009 International Conference & Exposition. I’ll be doing a series of rapid elearning demos at the Articulate booth.

Ten commandments of e-learning (content design)
Clive on Learning
APRIL 30, 2009
Cath Ellis recently set out her ten commandments of e-learning and this prompted me to try and articulate my own. Now e-learning's a big subject if you include all its many variants - formal and informal, synchronous and asynchronous and so on - and if you take into account all the issues relating to its management and marketing. So, what I've done is restrict my thoughts to the design of interactive, e-learning content, drawing heavily from the 60-minute masters : Structure into modules. Keep each module to one main idea. That's enough for most learners to cope with in one session.
The Best EDU Blogs on the Planet!
SEPTEMBER 11, 2009
TOP BLOGS! As we move closer towards 2010, you will increasingly see new posts or articles screaming here are the top 8, 10, 20, 30, 50, 100, etc. blogs or sites of this and that. Most of them just vomit out lists, without putting much effort to justify their claims, or at least say why the selected blogs should be on the list. Is that so hard to ask for? within 10-15 minutes. is worth the wait.
Using the Dreyfus Model to engage people in your Online Learning program
The Learning Generalist
AUGUST 30, 2009
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. The trouble is, that experts have trouble articulating many of their conclusions. Sumeet Moghe, 2009. Most new beginners tend to start here. The role of social media.

The fun part of my job is having a plethora of tools in my ‘elearning development’ toolbox: Adobe Creative Suite, Captivate, Visio, Lectora, and now Articulate. Who else has used both products?

The Secret Recipe to Delivering World Class Lectures
AUGUST 29, 2009
It is about presence and being a role model, letting them experience a way of how ideas and knowledge can be articulated, and so on. And after exploring some of the educators and lectures I have shared above, I believe I need to spend the rest of 2009 to first improve myself. But at least it got you to this sentence, so it is working (until now!). With that I totally disagree !
Every multimedia developer’s nightmare…the LCMS
AUGUST 7, 2009
As I step down from my “Flash soap box , I acknowledge that as with every other e-Learning development tool purchase (whether it’s Flash, Captivate, Articulate, Lectora, etc.) It seems important to begin this post with a disclaimer…this is my “multimedia developer opinion. You’ve been warned. As a multimedia developer the thought of developing e-Learning with an LCMS development tool sends shivers up my spine (not the good kind, like when you learn a new way to make something animate in Flash…yes, I know I need to get out more).
Are you playing the role of the Subject Matter Expert instead of the Instructional Designer?
MARCH 6, 2009
’ (The rapid development tool used was Articulate. I had a conversation by email with someone I really care about that probably came off a bit bitchy, a bit holier-than-thou…it you can have just “a bit of either of those traits. And, I’m probably about to come off the same way here. That’s not an apology. I yam what I yam. She’d need to be an engineer.

Designing for Articulate: A Newbie’s View
JULY 7, 2009
I’m new to Articulate. Although I’ve been r eading Tom Kuhlman’s Rapid E-Learning Blog now for a couple of years, I’ve never actually designed (or for that matter, built) an Articulate course. That is, if a client uses Articulate in-house, they may ask us to build a few courses for them in Articulate. (We also do a lot of custom Flash, Mohive, etc.) How constricting!”

Learning with e's
DECEMBER 5, 2009
Somehow, putting down these ideas in a manner that makes them publicly accessible, makes me strive even harder to articulate my ideas in a coherent way.

ADDIE should have been DADDIE all along
DECEMBER 5, 2009
So it was an “aha” moment when I read Gerry Wasiluk’s post about the DADDIE model on the Articulate Forum. By Jay Lambert. Being in the realm of performance improvement, we are always searching for ways to improve our own processes. Basically, his former group borrowed from Six Sigma and added the ‘Define’ step to the beginning of the learning industry-standard ADDIE model. (As a reminder, ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate.). What constitutes Define? Things we are all already doing anyway really. Define encompasses the logical first steps of a project.

Moodle is an Airport, Not a Total Solution!
NOVEMBER 12, 2009
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). No, it is not an Airport! It is more like a space station ! Whatever Moodle is, in this post Moodle is an 'Airport' (figurative speech that is!). Let's begin! MOODLE IS NOT. Web 2.0

It’s a book on how to effectively manage emails. Check it out. Email is Money.
Articulate and Flash with Audio
OCTOBER 9, 2009
I’ve been working on an Articulate Presenter course with a lot of flash files that have audio. quickly began to notice that the.swfs acted differently once imported into Articulate. Import settings – When inserting a flash movie into Articulate you have a few different settings to consider. However when previewing in Articulate if I clicked on a button before the audio was complete it would overlap with the next frame’s audio.

The Semantic Web cometh
OCTOBER 4, 2009
thoroughly articulated semantic web wouldn’t actually return a bunch of links on search. The information age is rapidly turning into an age of information overload. simple search of the web using a search engine like Google reveals a fantastic array of information. As I’ve discovered given the thousands if not millions of results, trying to sort through and make sense of any of that data is an exercise in futility. This sort of rudimentary search and pray approach isn’t effective, and grows more ineffective by the day with the growing size of the web. Why can’t it be easier? Web 3.0
