I think, therefore I blog

Learning with e's

In a recent blog post, I gave seven reasons why teachers should blog. It was subsequently expanded to 10 good reasons by the contributions from readers - which is actually an eleventh reason why teachers should blog - you get back such great comments, suggestions, arguments and advice, it would be crazy not to share your content. Evernote is a great tool for that purpose.

Experiencing eLearning

One of the features of Sakai that our team was looking for in a new LMS is a blogging tool. admit some significant improvements in usability are possible in this tool. However, it does give us the option of blogging within the system.

Blog is the watering hole A learning blog is so much a happening place! The blog has a personal touch, it is easy to follow, its updates are delivered to participant's RSS reader instantaneously.

Blogs and RSS as Learning Tools

eLearning Weekly

Many of us techies have been using RSS for years, and you may even run your own blog. Blogs can also be a fantastic way to record your progress on projects, take notes, share findings, etc. What are some of the obstacles we face in using blogs and RSS readers at our organizations? First, blogs and RSS don’t get much respect in the enterprise. Now, I know many companies have executives and employees who blog regularly, but this is still more of the exception than the rule. Second, users are either hesitant or scared to use new tools like an RSS reader.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting. Many of the blogs I follow are part of the  eLearningLearning community.

Thought trails

Clark Quinn

While implicitly it could support tracking a group’s progress, separate thoughts as recorded through blogs and tweets aren’t a natural feature. Yes, there’s integration with wikis and blogging tools, but it’s not quite the same.  They can do for external thought leaders by reading their blog and following their tweets.  I’ve riffed before about virtual mentorship , and it resonated again today.  We were getting a tour of one of the social platforms, organized as many are around tasks, questions, and dialog.  meta-learning social

How to Measure Social Learning

CLO Magazine

” Telus does keep detailed track of its social learning participation — in 2011, for instance, 16,600 of its employees joined its Buzz micro-blogging tool. In 2009, Telus’ wikis and blogs garnered 23,000 pageviews from employees; in 2011, that number grew to 308,676. Make sure that a certain social learning tool has been in place for at least six months, maybe even a year, before measurement. Of course, as with any new tool or technology, measuring social learning will come with its share of roadblocks. How many users are posting comments?

Backchannels – what’s all the fuss, anyway?

Integrated Learnings

While there, I engaged in a practice I had never before used known as a backchannel, via the well known micro blogging tool Twitter. Microblogging – Wikipedia states that microblogs "allow users to exchange small elements of content such as short sentences, individual images, or video links.” It is different from a traditional blog in that it is exactly what the title infers – micro. There are a lot of tools that can be used for a backchannel, but one of the most popular is Twitter. By Dean Hawkinson. But guess what? How It Works. Positives. Challenges. What's yours?

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. However, a few things struck me: A big reason for the survey was to get people to think about where these tools might make sense.
