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. For the annual eLearn Mag predictions, this year I wrote: I think we’ll see some important, but subtle, trends. Deeper uses of technology are going to surface: more data-driven interactions, complemented by both more structured content and more semantics. These trends are precursors to some very interesting nascent capabilities, essentially web 3.0:

The Promise Of 3D Learning
AUGUST 10, 2011
Same applies to bandwidth, it is now good enough to stream video, and should easily transfer data for 3D. Every now and again I wonder about the multi-user 3D environments, or virtual worlds that were all the rage just a couple of years ago, the finest example being Second Life. Second Life itself was a promising collaborative 3D learning platform. That day is far off yet. Learning in 3D.
Learning And Social Networks
JULY 12, 2011
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. Ironic that.

Where is the model for e-learning?

DECEMBER 20, 2011
As designers, we don't have that steady stream of everyday examples to give us inspiration. With most learning media, there is an expectation of how it should look and behave based on the mass media. We can benchmark what we do against 1000s of everyday examples. We can model our learning videos on what we see on TV and on YouTube. We can model podcasts on what we hear on the radio. We have endless examples from print media and the World Wide Web on which to model our text-based materials.

used a Dutch article about various learning theories : ontwikkeling van leren in organisaties by Keursten to look at what the various thought streams might think about twitter: Behaviorism: learning is equivalent to influencing and changing behaviour. Within this thought stream twitter is more interesting. Sometimes people might say: ' Ok, but twitter is not learning.
3 Essential Themes for Mobile Learning Systems
JULY 4, 2011
Integrating with the social/collaboration theme, perhaps we should consider adding basic user-configurable semantic agents that can trawl the conversation streams looking for what ‘interests’ the user and alerting them to the correct content/user. Other curation tools to consider would be real-time search of the various data streams that are part of the system. technologies.
Twelve Ways to Add Value to Open Source LMS Systems
Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning
NOVEMBER 29, 2011
Video streaming Moodle does not stream video effectively. For better streaming experience third party integration with services like YouTube, Kaltura and so on. I've been too wrapped up thinking about interactivity to pay attention to the pains learning managers must go through for making their Moodle implementations effective. So, when I sat down to talk with Dr Asheesh Choksi, technology consultant and architect, about Moodle, he gave me a 12-point program to add value to Moodle - which was quite an eye opener. 1. What questions are learners failing consistently?
The Key to Adoption of Collaboration Tools: Process Integration
SEPTEMBER 15, 2011
But, if the tool requires switching workflows mid-stream, user adoption will continue to languish. Plenty has been written about why employees are slow to adopt enterprise collaboration tools. For example, in a Klint Finley interview called Five Principles for Improving Social Enterprise Adoption , Yakabod CEO Scott Ryser cites the importance of “political juice.”
Tips for Starting to Freelance
NOVEMBER 22, 2011
Multiple Income Streams. In August, I quit my job as a long-term contractor at Cisco to officially make the leap to freelancing. I did some side projects earlier in the year, but not enough to replace my full-time income. want to share my experiences and tips from these first three months as an independent contractor for anyone else thinking about making this change. Get a Project First. If you’re currently working, don’t quit until you have a project lined up. Put Money in Savings. You need a cushion in the bank to cover expenses when you’re getting started.
Face-to-face is for special occasions

great deal of your media consumption is asynchronous - under your time control - using iPods, hard disk video recorders, streaming media and the like. Ask yourself. What proportion of the music that you consume is at a live performance? Chances are it's something between 0 and 10%. What proportion of the drama that you watch is at the theatre, rather than at the cinema or on TV? I'd be surprised if it's more than a few percent. And what proportion of the sport you watch is in a stadium rather than on TV. You get the idea. Perhaps even peak experiences.
Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager
DECEMBER 27, 2011
This is the proverbial organizational hive mind but someone has to enable the enterprise to make sense of this stream, separate the wheat from the chaff, and connect the dots to reveal the key patterns below. Faced with the tsunami of information, we are all floundering to find our way to content that actually matters. From setting up filters--both of the automated and human variety--to trying to make sense of what we find, we are in a fix, so to speak. The scene within an enterprise is not much different. The lifespan of enterprises are declining rapidly. Very closely, I would say.

We then got to observe a concert venue that featured streaming video of different bands shown in different places including a concert by the beach.

My life…in elearning
OCTOBER 21, 2011
We don’t have cable TV, but download or stream most of our media content over the Internet. 20 years ago I was a struggling recent college graduate who had moved to Boston in the middle of a recession. 15 years ago I got a job as an instructional designer/multimedia producer at a company that created training programs delivered on CD ROMS. It sounded really glamorous to me. You there.

The Six Hats of a Community Manager
DECEMBER 15, 2011
Theactivity stream turns into an overwhelming flood and people lose control oftheir information flow. In my previous post, I wrote about the tenets of communitymanagement based on my learnings from the past 6 months. In this post, I wantto talk about the different hats that we need to don as community managers.This was well put in the diagram by Andy Wibbels which you can see in this post called Inside the Mind of a Community Manager.It graphically represents a number of things a community manager needs to be aware of in her/his role. What we are asking for is a behaviour change.
Our Takeaways from DevLearn 2011
NOVEMBER 11, 2011
See some prototypes of activity stream-based tracking and even build your own at Project Tin Can ; while this technology may not be in common use for another few years, it’s very interesting to think of how these new capabilities will affect our designs and the tools we use for development. Surprisingly, though, it didn’t feel impersonal to me. Here are my highlights. It’s About the People….

I Don’t Care What You Had For Lunch: Finding Professional Value in Twitter
JULY 4, 2011
Here at Dashe & Thomson, we made a New Year’s resolution for 2011 to dig a little deeper into social media and explore how to use it for social and informal learning, increasing website traffic, and building networks. Then, in March, I attended the Learning Solutions 2011 conference hosted by the eLearning Guild. have to say, I met this announcement with an inward groan.

Social Media in Learning and Social Learning are just not the same thing
The Learning Generalist
JULY 14, 2011
You can try second guessing the structure for this endless stream of communication and you can also guarantee failure for every such attempt. It concerns me how a lot of the social learning conversation seems to veer around the tools in the space. Tools are arriving thick and fast and yeah, it's easy to get caught up with all the bling. To me this is perhaps Elearning 2.0 Sumeet Moghe.

This morning I happened to stumble upon an interesting Twitter stream hashtag - #qaz11 - which I quickly realised was being generated by a group of students in the care of my old friend Jose Luis Garcia (well worth following him on Twitter: @JL3001, over at the University of Cantabria in Spain. I want to inspire you to reach farther. Reach further - and become a worldwide educator.
How To Brain Sync With A Subject Matter Expert
The eLearning Coach
AUGUST 3, 2011
In case you’re new at this, instructional designers often interview subject matter experts to access their stream of knowledge. Short of performing a science fiction mind-meld, how can you efficiently transfer content from the brain of a subject matter expert (SME) into a form you can use? Leveraging the knowledge of SMEs is one reason that instructional designers are content neutral.

mLearning Tech A’plenty Released at CES 2011
JANUARY 7, 2011
In the midst of all the new 3D TVs, streaming home entertainment, futuristic toys and smart appliances, the primary market focus of this year’s show seems to be on mobility with smartphones, tablets and apps taking center stage in many of the main keynotes and featured front-and-center in larger vendor booths. To me, the more significant advances introduced at CES 2011 were the formal introductions from the leading carriers of their much anticipated “4G”, high-speed networks. Better Devices.
