system-generated content.  I also think we’ll see the further demise of “courses über alles” and the ‘all-singing all-dancing’ solution, and movement towards performance support and learning facilitation driven via federated capabilities. Taking the steps now have some immediate payoffs in terms of optimizing content development streams and looking anew at what are important interactions, but the big returns come in creating optimized learning and performance interactions. These trends are precursors to some very interesting nascent capabilities, essentially web 3.0:

How On Target Were My 2011 Predictions? It’s time once again to take stock of what happened in enterprise mobile learning and see if any of my 2011 predictions hit their intended targets.

The Storytelling Element of Instructional Games

Kapp Notes

Well designed educational games blend a task-related story with interactive game elements to help the player learn the desired behaviors, actions and thinking patterns that support the desired outcome within a particular context. Games can provide a visual and narrative context for player performance. Simple games like tic-tac-toe are not guided by a story. Content Guide

Games overcome the “sting of failure” specifically by doing things like giving multiple opportunities to perform a task until mastery and through the introduction of chance or randomness (two elements schools and corporations work hard to eliminate). 1984) it was found that performance contingent rewards (found in many games) produced greater intrinsic motivation than the same performance objective and favorable performance feedback without reward. 1997) Can Salient Reward increase Creative Performance without Reducing Intrinsic Creative Interest? 72, 652-663.

Do You Walk To Work or Carry Your Lunch? Putting Content Into Context. Part II.

When verbally describing performance support I have referred to it as a Microsoft-Help- that-actually-works.  I don’t know about you – but I have used Microsoft Help only a couple of times and it is a very frustrating exercise.  Performance support is such a beautiful and powerful solution for so many reasons.  Learners will give up.  They are frustrated. Beautiful.

Emphasizing Noteworthy Content in eLearning

Integrated Learnings

We know that we should limit training to “must know” information, eliminating the “nice to know” stuff that does not directly impact learners’ ability to perform the objectives. Below are some ideas for providing this type of support in eLearning. The intent is to support, not limit.

Naturally, this prompted us to rethink how to help learners take notes productively. Highlights.

e-Learning Programs' Support Services to Learners

eFront

However, how do we support our learners before, during, and after an e-Learning course, program, and (or) certificate? By focusing on the support services before the the e-Learning course begin you will attract and prepare the learners. By focusing on the support services during the e-Learning course you will enhance learning. By focusing on the support services after the e-Learning course you will have an online learning community of professionals with same interests. With training’s limitations under scrutiny, it may be performance support’s time to shine.

Why does learning content seem so much more exciting on an iPad?

Clive on Learning

Not so much performance support, because you need that to hand every minute of the day and a smart phone is the obvious vehicle. I'm convinced that the future of e-learning will be on tablet devices. But for learning, a tablet seems such a perfect fit. Since DevLearn last week, when it seemed every other person was carrying an iPad, I've been trying to figure out just what it is that tablets offer as a delivery medium for learning which a laptop can't do equally as well. That will fade, of course, but for now using a tablet seems more fun, more contemporary, more engaging.

Five Practical Mobile Learning Tips

Upside Learning

Find a problem with learning or performance first , think about learning next, and mobile learning last.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

lurker might very well be giving back by performing better at their jobs, by sharing insights with others in the context of their daily work by using the learning gleaned from lurking. Active lurkers also include those people who may visit a customer support community and find a solution to their problem without contributing to the community. They are the free riders. Not really.

The Big Question: how to assess informal learning

Clive on Learning

The Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is long enough to fill a post all by itself: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results? Employers are not interested in learning, they’re interested in performance. Can they perform?
