The Internet Time Community has been hosted on Ning for a little over three years. I was shocked and saddened when Ning announced that its free service was ending.

I received a great question from someone relative to my last post - Required Reading for Training Managers where I continue to suggest the benefits of blogging (see Blogging - I'm Pushing Harder Now and Top Ten Reasons To Blog and Top Ten Not to Blog for recaps of much of this). The question was: What is your assessment of the relative benefits of pure blogging vs LinkedIn Answers and other social networking platform-based discussion venues? Social Network based discussions (for example a Ning network) act like communities. But, it's just that.

4 Ways to Apply the Situated Learning Theory

Forums vs. Social Networks?

They could also do it as comments on a blog. Social Network Examples are Ning and KickApps. I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards. Participation will eventually mean a lot of different things, but initially it will primarily be sharing ideas. A user can do this through posting to a threaded discussion quite easily. Typically they center around threaded discussions. Generally are easy to get into.

How our learning theories shape how we use technology for learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I blogged about the difference before in: twittering= learning ? For instance, we use Ning, a social network for our learning trajectories whereas we could use a learning management system (LMS). In Ning, the technology invites me to start on the fly with new discussions. The graph displays more theories and some of the major terms used. T witter is not about learning. Lesson?

Command-and-Control Leadership vs. People-Centered Leadership

The Peformance Improvement

Given the large number of books, articles, blogs , and nings written about employee engagement and people-centered management, you’d think that the command-and-control style of leadership had gone   the way of the ivory-billed woodpecker. Command-and-control leadership remains pervasive throughout business, government, and nonprofit organizations. Bnet.com defines command-and-control as: …a style of leadership that uses standards, procedures, and output statistics to regulate the organization. Sloan, Jr. But not so. It is difficult to understand a different logic.
