2011 is 1/12th over and thanks to my exalted status as thought leader (!!) for the BQ, I am compelled to write my predictions for 2011. Plus, while most organizations give their managers company owned smartphones, the HR perspective around policy/fairness makes it more challenging.  I thought the concept of using Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) for training at a large hotel  chain was quite a smart idea.  It identified the challenge of multi-platform devices that make it more daunting to create mLearning and while it is electronic it is not online/social.

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2011

mLearning Trends

It is time once again to ponder the research, extrapolate on recent experience, and attempt to read the tea leaves so we can predict the future of enterprise mobile learning in 2011. If 2010 was the year of the pilot, then 2011 will be the year of the deployment. Sure, companies may still provided workers with an old BlackBerry (on a 2-year contract), but increasingly more people will opt to use their own iPhones/iPads or Android handsets or tablets once their devices can be secured and supported within their organizations. 3. mLearning Engagements Expand.

5 E-Learning Forecasts for 2012

eLearning 24-7

In 2011, I saw quite a few items that resonated. One company even went so far as inviting me to speak on the topic to their L&D group. Great opportunities in education (K-12 and higher ed) and even with companies, although I see it more with mid size and large.  Thus the argument that companies plus 10,000 or even 50,000 all want TM/PM functionality, is ludicrous. will admit it is one of the most disappointing features that failed to deliver in 2011.

The KeyedIn story.

The Promise Of 3D Learning

Upside Learning

Yet, as I trawl the web looking for successful implementations of such 3Dverses for learning, I find very little substantive information about companies implementing such systems with any reasonable success. feel the issue lies in companies being hesitant to unleash what could possibly be a huge resource hog on the network. That day is far off yet. Learning in 3D.

How Suitable Is HTML5 For Mobile Learning?

Upside Learning

Large companies, especially in the BFSI market need security built into their technology solutions. Having said that, I believe all elearning companies must adopt HTML5 sooner rather than later; this despite the future Flash may or may not have. We have been aware of the security concerns around HTML5 and the mad scramble amongst browsers to implement ‘their’ way of rendering HTML5.

Learning And Social Networks

Upside Learning

As an early user, none of my ‘real’ social network peers were on it yet and it made me follow a large number of Google product engineering folks, developers from other companies, and technology journalists and yes, I also follow Mark Zuckerberg, who it seems is the most ‘followed’ person on Plus right now. One unique aspect separates Plus from other Google services.

Microlearning – A Paradigm Shift In The Way We Learn

Special Report: Leadership Development 2011

CLO Magazine

According to a 2010 study by consultancy i4cp , while 75 percent of organizations responding to the study cited leadership development as important, only 23 percent said they were effective at developing leaders internally – an incredible disparity between companies’ priorities and capabilities. It is with this gap in mind that Chief Learning Officer magazine introduces its special report on leadership development in 2011, seen here. This is particularly true given the wave of baby boomers set to leave the workforce as they phase into retirement.

Growth In Formal Learning

Upside Learning

With service industries ending up as major consumers of learning, the focus on knowledge is more pronounced, I sometimes feel it is the one key influence affecting the level of service a company can offer and profit from.
