Elliott Masie’s recent study suggests that more and more people are seeing the business value of social media (which is just one piece of web 2.0) in learning. Masie comments: “we would not have these numbers 1 year ago. My husband asked me yesterday to explain Web 2.0 to him again. Rate the value of social learning in your organization? What do you think?

" 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.

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 list is: IT HR - and no it doesn't include learning or training - it's more the compliance side of HR.

Social learning survey results

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.

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.

Elliott Masie points to this article in the Armed Forces Journal by T.X. Hammes (retired Marine Corps). In this article, Hammes systematically describes how Power Point is a horrible tool for doing decision-making briefings. “PowerPoint is not a neutral tool —it is actively hostile to thoughtful decision-making. It has also changed the culture of decision-making.&#. Hammes’ argument is that Power Point runs against the grain when it comes to the decision-making process. Hammes however thinks that Power Point is good for information briefs and not decision briefs.

Social Learning Survey Results

Simply Speaking

I remember taking part in this survey from Elliott Masie. wish Masie had shared the sample size (1069 is not a bad number, don’t you agree?) Now the results are out. My suspicion is that the target audience may be a bit skewed – aren’t the people who took this survey online more likely than not to be pro-social-learning? demographics as well. Anyway, let’s park suspicions aside and look at the findings. Only a little more than 50 percent of the respondents used any social media technology (the corporate collaboration portal came out tops at 58 percent). Luddites!

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.

Learning Leaders Fieldbook

George Siemens

Masie Center’s Learning Leaders Fieldbook offers a diverse-perspective overview of leading learning in an organization. Topics include talent management, role of CLO (including lifecycle, basics of success, team structure), and role of technology. In all, it’s a good handbook. But, its strength is also a weakness: each chapter is only a few pages. After a few chapters you get the impression that you’re reading a series of blog posts. Why this push for shallowness? presented at a large corporate learning event about five months ago. Corporate learners aren’t dumb.
