Tool Set 2009
JANUARY 5, 2009
I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? What should be in your tool set? What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools? Should twitter be part of your tool set? Setting up a SharePoint for a community or work team is very different from teaching them about Personal Learning. What is a Tool Set?

Open Source eLearning Tools
OCTOBER 13, 2010
I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory.

Audio in E-Learning
NOVEMBER 3, 2009
Audio is a powerful and impactful tool, but it is often used incorrectly within e-learning courses. common question is "Should we have audio in the e-learning module that exactly matches the text on the screen?" It’s not that you can’t learn from audio and text, it is just that the learning is more productive if the two are separate (audio that enhances what is on the screen not repeats it word-for-word). And research show that is not the best for learning. The general answer is no. Here are some reasons why.
Best of the Best: Content Authoring Tools
NOVEMBER 14, 2011
Again, not every tool below is SaaS based, but at some point, you have to move to the SaaS world, especially if you are offering or saying you do – some type of mobile learning functionality. Ease of Use – definitely plays into the decision making. I’ve seen some authoring tools that fit most of the criteria above, but whose ease of use is substandard or even really bad.

The global success of Articulate is well known in the elearning field, and it appears that Microsoft would like to steal a bit of market share as well!

Times are changing – trends in the content authoring tool market
JULY 20, 2011
There are 124 authoring tools in my latest directory, of which 30 are SaaS or a combination of desktop and SaaS – which really what is the point of that? Even though more tools are adding the features of collaborative and peer review (more on that in a sec) they are still heavy geared towards a desktop solution. believe though, that will be higher, especially with these tools meeting and honestly beating some major league competitors. While there are SaaS tools that do not yet offer this feature, it will change. Mobile Learning. Learning 24/7.

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).

Do Microcourses Have a Place in Workplace Learning?
DECEMBER 28, 2009
From Wikipedia – Microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. Generally, the term ‘microlearning’ refers to micro-perspectives in the context of learning, education and training. More frequently, the term is used in the domain of E-learning and related fields in the sense of a new paradigmatic perspective on learning processes in mediated environments on micro levels.

Performance Learning Productivity

Truth 1: Too much information for any human to reme mber Most pre go-live training is delivered through ILT or eLearning and is content-heavy. You finish a day’s training course, go home, sleep, and by the next morning a lot of what you had ‘learned’ has been cleaned out of your short-term memory. Then next day you get back to work and try to implement what you learned in the class.
