What is a Learning Technologist?

Dont Waste Your Time

Learning Technologists are not always involved in purely online, distance, eLearning or mLearning, we are used to help improve and update face-to-face materials to either introduce a new technique or just to update a presentation, make it more 2009 and less 1999.

Are you playing the role of the Subject Matter Expert instead of the Instructional Designer?

Janet Clarey

My email conversation came at a time when I saw the tweet (below) from Clark Quinn on Twitter so I felt some sort of validation of my opinion (don’t you love serendipity?). Cheap and fast but not likely to show up at the antiques show 150 years from now (or to go down in your most memorable training book IMHO). And, I’m probably about to come off the same way here.

LMSs that kick ass: Mzinga

Janet Clarey

My more recent contact at Mzinga is Dave Wilkins. I’m a more recent reader of Dave’s blog and occasionally have conversations with him in Twitter. Mzinga believes that while traditional web-based training and eLearning courses have provided great ROI and cost reduction, they lack the social aspect of learning—the diversity in perspective, the insights, and the real-world stories and sharing that have always happened in a classroom. First, we think training and learning today are flawed. It’s Friday yay! Kudos Jen (if you’re out there). Thanks Dave!
