My husband asked me yesterday to explain Web 2.0 to him again. in learning. Rate the value of social learning in your organization? What do you think?

Elliott Masie drew my attention to this splendid website that analyses websites and decides what Myers Briggs Type Inverntory (MBTI) type they are www.typealyzer.com. Aside from the scepticism about how it actually works, I was tickled that my blog come up the same as my personal MBTI type. Based on the narrative I feel extra “charming and trend savvy” – although often on this blog I wonder just how grumpy I sound. Want to find out more about MBTI? Look no further than the Trainers & Developers Network who will be having a day on MBTI in May. training
Why Attend Conferences? UW Annual Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning’s 25th Anniversary
AUGUST 4, 2009
MASIE Conferences. As an eLearning provider, we are hearing a lot of chatter from prospects looking to transition to online education. No doubt the anticipated 20% - 40% decline in face-to-face workshop education is causing alarm in the conference marketplace. However, I believe that eLearning managers should attend at least one industry conference a year. The choices of eLearning and distance learning conferences are plentiful— see the list below of the ones I keep on my own radar screen. My stance is that for those of us involved in education, it’s all about sharing!

" Slightly more reliable are the stories of what is actually happening right now, as reported to the latest MASIE Center Barometer in Uncertain Times. As ever, MASIE Center results will be coloured by the fact that the respondents are self-selecting and favourably disposed to e-learning, but these are such powerful figures that it's impossible to underestimate them. Thanks to Kineo for pointing me to the Market Update recently released by Ambient Insight which forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 16.3% from 2008 to 2013 for learning technology products and services.

From Masie's recent social learning survey it appears that there is a lot of adoption by learning professionals. Stewart Mader points us to Sarah Denman's look at the four groups most likely to be involved in a wiki or other enterprise 2.0 implementations. The list is: IT HR - and no it doesn't include learning or training - it's more the compliance side of HR.

The MASIE Center has just published an interesting survey on the use of social learning in the workplace. Thanks to the MASIE Center for getting this data together. I'm not sure I go with the term 'social learning' because this is incredibly ambiguous - after all, a fair proportion of all learning involves the learner interacting with others - but let's assume they mean the use of social media for learning and not get distracted. This was a self-selecting survey to which 1069 responded, ostensibly from 'around the globe', although I would predict a strong North American skew.

Last November I had the privilege of participating in a panel of experts at the Learning 2008 Conference sponsored by Elliott Masie in Orlando. The focus of the panel, moderated by Dr. Conrad Gottfredson and Bob Mosher, zeroed in on best practices intended to improve accessibility of learning to learners in their moments of learning need. I sat with three other CLO-type learning leaders from Bank of America, Disney, and Sprint. With a standing room only crowd in our meeting room, it was apparent the momentum of interest had also spread more broadly. ty : 1. Can you say “Wikipedia”?

Ten years ago Elliott Masie led a workshop for eLearning vendors at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle. Honchos from dozens of top-tier eLearning companies filled the lecture theater. Everybody was new at this, so we spent a lot of time on nuts and bolts. Elliott asked for a show of hands: How many of us had actually completed a module of eLearning in order to learn something?

What passes for work

I was prompted to think about this as it is the question I have submitted to present to Eliot Masie when he speaks to an e-Learning Network seminar this week. I've just abandoned a post in which I wondered if it was time to ditch the 'e' in elearning. When you've got a term that encompasses Articulate authored text 'n next packages to online synchronous webinars to emmersive multi-player simulation environments to videoed lectures on YouTube to Ning social networks, it strikes me that you are working with a term that has lost any specificity and thus any real meaning. Sorry. thoughts

This morning I also received a pointer to a survey of a thousand trainers and training managers by Elliott Masie. The front page of this morning’s New York Times carried a story entitled As Jurors Turn to Web, Mistrials Are Popping Up. The judge in a big Federal drug trial in Florida was shocked ( shocked !) to discover a juror had Googled information about the defendants. He declared a mistrial when it turned out that eight more jurors had used their iPhones and Blackberries to check out facts not in evidence. Well, duh. This makes me wonder what the remaining 40% were smoking.

He quotes an article by Dion Hinchcliffe in ZD Net in which Dion states, The idea of DIY (Do It Yourself) is to get developers and IT departments out of the demand loop and letting users self-service themselves. It has to be DIY, user-driven and uncontrolled. Tests. Maybe.
