Want ‘Facebook’ In Your LMS?

Upside Learning

I need ‘Facebook’…. Of late one of the things I’ve heard from prospects and clients is “I need Facebook in my LMS&#.

Facebook for Educators

Moodle Journal

Given all this, I do still continue to see articles and postings where clearly the application has worked well, then the other day I came across a YouTube video ‘ The Basics of a Facebook Page for Educators’ If you have not seen this for yourself then I can recommend it as a good starter. I also came across this rather large sample of (The teachers guide to using Facebook) Facebook the missing manual from OReilly.

A Text-Book App for Facebook well…mostly for iPad

Kapp Notes

Kno (pronounced “Know&# ) is a company that produces an application to for digital text books for downloading onto iPads, eReaders, the web and now for Facebook.

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. Flash will still not be supported on iOS devices in 2011 but this fact will matter far less over time.

Tony Karrer

Quora is a Q&A site nicely integrated with Facebook that has done a good job providing a means to ask questions and get answers.

We also see it in twitter (see Twitter for Learning ).

What Is Game Based Learning?

Upside Learning

This is something that I realized while playing the game “Mafia Wars” on Facebook. I spent close to a year laboring under the delusion that game based learning was all about incorporating course material into a game. After all, what else could it be? If I incorporate all the course learning objectives into a game setting and keep score – it qualifies as game based learning doesn’t it?

Presentations in the cloud

Every year, I identify five trends that I am seeing in the industry as a whole, and forecast on where they will be heading throughout the year.

Learning And Social Networks

Upside Learning

Unlike Facebook or Twitter where one accesses the ‘firehose’ of data that one subscribes to and is dependent on the Friends/Following, and where users mostly use features like groups/lists etc to sort out noise from the stream, Plus uses a different approach and lets users create ‘circles’ that allow them to separate streams. For now, it remains a geeky sort of place.
