#astdTK12: Instructional Design for a Semantic Web
JANUARY 25, 2012
By encouraging the inclusion of semantic content in web pages, the semantic web aims at converting the current web of unstructured documents into a “web of data.” Knewton : this company provides systems that detect what skills/knowledge people need and then creates appropriate, customized content at run-time to meet that specific learner’s needs.

How to Design An Elearning Course on a Budget
DECEMBER 21, 2010
The past few days I’ve been pulling some content together for a couple of workshops I’m doing at the ASTD TechKnowledge conference in San Jose. If you want to use the template, feel free to download the basic PowerPoint file that I used to create the job aid. In my case, I started with the Keurig documentation. Essentially it’s a mini training document. Bonus tip!

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: I Heart My Wiki
JULY 6, 2007
I started off cutting and pasting a lot of documents from Word into the wiki. I dont have to open 800 documents. I feel like Ive created an actual thing , instead of just a bunch of words on a page. I plan on creating a complete draft of the Strategic Plan in the wiki. Of course, Ill transfer that into an official looking Word document/PDF to deliver to the client.
Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?
JUNE 26, 2009
There’s no vendor who creates Moodle per say. Well, it’s true that Moodle was originally created for academic use and it already has a great foothold in the academic world. Out of the box, Moodle may not have all the features an enterprise needs, but simple add-ons can be created. Kineo has recently worked on creating a classroom management add-on for a corporate client and has a fabulous Moodle reporting tool. By the way, no one is biting on the bottled pilot approach yet, but you know, wind and water created the Grand Canyon, so. For free. (I’m
Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Google Desktop, Sidebar and Dual Monitors
JULY 25, 2007
Other benefits of working with two monitors: 1) Have a source document open on one screen and be writing a proposal/storyboard/script on the other. And I think I just figured it out: set your preferences and then let your computer sit idle for a long time so it can "crawl" and create an index. Creating Social Presence in Online Classroom (ID.

Shes included samples of wikis and courses she has created, links to podcasts, references and her resume. For years I had a stack of CDs -- examples of courses I had created over the years. Somewhere on an old laptop Ive got examples of old project plans, design documents and storyboards. But it makes sense to be keeping track of your output as you create it. Your blog?
FEBRUARY 3, 2009
Last week at ASTD TechKnowledge , I did a keynote on Work Literacy and eLearning 2.0, time on personal FaceBook pages and then still email documents back and forth. I thought of introducing this tool to management by creating a blog on leadership topics with an RSS (as a useful illustration of its ability). I have no idea how to create an RSS. an online Q&A Session for the Virtual Conference and a session on using Web 2.0 Tools for eLearning. You can find the handouts for the last session via TK09 Handouts. But I also see things that I feel need to be addressed.
Our Essential iOS Apps

AUGUST 2, 2007
the web apps status quo is set to change with the arrival of Buzzword , an office-caliber document editor with a visually rich user interface. And in a few months, when a desktop version is released, Buzzword will pose a serious challenge to Microsoft Word, the current king of document editing on the desktop.

JULY 26, 2007

And Ive only been using it for my own project documentation. Creating Social Presence in Online Classroom (ID.

JUNE 8, 2007
My company creates customized course development templates for organizations.

The fact that this is one of the general sessions at ASTD TechKnowledge is interesting way to start 2009. I likely can create very interesting conversations and can help advertise these. It's quite an experience to have a work group edit a project status document real-time. It's been good to create a more formal list of what I want to research, blog about, use on projects, etc.
Customer Complaints, How to Avoid the Traps
JANUARY 5, 2011
Case studies: Marketing Document. Will the customer state in the case study anything about the product they do not like (I created one of these things once for a vendor a long time ago, and a customer mentioned to me that they did not like x and y about the product; guess what – it wasn’t in the case study). The customer is aware ahead of time that the vendor is going to create this case study, because the vendor has pre-notified them. I created this group as an extension to this blog. And yes, there are times it is both parties. Favorites include. hello?
Cammy Beans Learning Visions: e-Learning Content & Version Control
AUGUST 1, 2007
Weve decided to add some simple text descriptors in our admin section that will allow a course creator to identify the content authors, the date originally created, update date, summary text about the course, and notes about the types of changes that were made. As Janet mentioned, "most companies have digital document control procedures that include e-Learning content." In the Learning Portals that we create for our clients, we need to think about how we can ensure that updates are effectively tracked and recorded and that old versions of courses are properly archived.
Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Instructional Design: Whats in a name?
JANUARY 19, 2009
I get paid more to create training materials. Why, I do not know, as generally speaking, the user guides I write are more complex than the training materials I create. Part of that reason is in how I just said the difference - I write user guides, but I create training materials - thus, the "design" of ID. This topic creates much flurry and excitement, thats for sure.
