I'm Speaking at #DevLearn
AUGUST 3, 2014
I''m excited to be presenting again at the DevLearn conference this fall. To deliver effective learning to this audience means being very concise in both content and course design, while still having impact and not sacrificing instructional integrity. First, identify appropriate learning objectives and exclude the extraneous objectives trying to sneak into the course.

This keynote by Natalie Panek (she is a real rocket scientist, NASA Mission Systems Engineer, MDA Robotics and Automation Learning) will only be available for one week through the ELearning Guild's archive. Natalie gave the closing keynote at the DevLearn conference in 2015. It is definitely worth half an hour, for all of us dreamers and actors in learning technology.
Reflections on DevLearn 2014
Spark Your Interest
NOVEMBER 12, 2014
Having returned from my first ever DevLearn, it seemed appropriate to capture some rambling reflections and share them. As As with any large conference there are some ups and downs, and for those of you considering attending a DevLearn in the future, here are a few of my main take-aways (and pieces of advice for the future). flip flopped between looking at the coolest options (using tools that I would never use) and looking at solutions that would be within the realm of my possibilities. I’m not sure I retained enough to learn from these. learning DevLearn

NOVEMBER 17, 2014
In this next segment of the DevLearn 2014 reflections – Learning Rebel, Andrea May of Dashe & Thomson, gives us a great peek inside her world of being a first time DevLearn attendee. Ultimately you come to the realization that you really can’t apply what you have learned, at least not immediately. How do you plan? How do you prioritize? What is my goal?
Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive
NOVEMBER 11, 2014
Still emanating from DevLearn two weeks ago, the buzz about the Experience API is resonating. Marty Rosenheck has made great strides with his learning experience manager, Trek, since he first started the concept work for the software at Up to All of Us in 2012. BTW – Chad’s new book with Gary Woodill is out — Mastering Mobile Learning. . Experience API / "Tin Can

DevLearn 2015 Recap
OCTOBER 8, 2015
Team Trivantis® took a field trip to Las Vegas last week for DevLearn 2015. Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games at DevLearn 2015. Serious learning happened in the breakout sessions and at DemoFest. Learn more about Lectora and xAPI in this post: Thursday’s Trending eLearning Topic: xAPI. 2.

DevLearn evaluation: The gap is widening: We are in a crisis!
Challenge to Learn
OCTOBER 31, 2014
DevLearn 2014 is over. I’m sitting in the pool area of the Bellaggio hotel writing this evaluation. In a way this is an analogy for my experience at DevLearn and the state of our industry. During DevLearn I found that there is a huge gap between the presenters and the audience. I did notice that gap at other conferences as well, but in my opinion that gap is widening.
DevLearn 2014 – It’s a Wrap (and it’s all about community): Featuring Meg Bertapelle
NOVEMBER 19, 2014
This is the perfect round up of our DevLearn series. Last week #chat2LRN hosted a twitter chat based on the DevLearn/ Personal Learning Network experience. So today you are not only getting Meg’s view of the PLN experience but those of an entire twitter crowd! It seems as the reoccurring theme for DevLearn was about making connections – new ones and strengthening old ones.
DevLearn Thoughts: Is Game Based Learning Misunderstood?
NOVEMBER 13, 2012
We had a great time at DevLearn 2012 in Las Vegas. Since we were there in part to launch or Knowledge Guru™ learning game engine, we were especially tuned in to what was being said about learning games at the conference… and what other game based learning products were being shown. Sharon Boller introducing Knowledge Guru at DevLearn. Gamification.

DevLearn Day 2
OCTOBER 24, 2013
Back for another exciting review of DevLearn’s Expo. So what will you read today about? For example, there were several vendors making their debut – as in their solution – at DevLearn. A few of which were literally startups. Not only does it show that this industry, i.e. e-learning is continuing to grow an enhance, it also shows the naysayers – we are not going anywhere – so go after the ILT people and leave us alone. Or at least that is my takeaway. That makes much more sense that attending some other shows in the e-learning industry.
#DevLearn 14 Reflections
NOVEMBER 5, 2014
This past week I was at the always great DevLearn conference, the biggest and arguably best yet. Beau Lotto also spoke , linking how our past experience alters our perception to necessary changes in learning. The fact that the Guild is holding the Learning Ecosystem conference and their release of a new and quite good white paper by Marc Rosenberg and Steve Foreman are further evidence that awareness is growing. So what did I learn? The bad news appears to be that the view of ‘information dump & knowledge test = learning’ is still all too prevalent.

NOVEMBER 1, 2012
So we are off to an excellent start with DevLearn. One is SaaS or cloud based solutions, the other is the future of the Learning Management Systems. TinCan will free us from this, it allows you to track and trace any learning experience, anywhere. I don’t know what the adoption will actually mean but it sounded like TinCan will be the next version of IACC. Great keynote.
xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY
SEPTEMBER 28, 2015
The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us. Last year was the first year there was an official xAPI Track at DevLearn and, together, we are upping that ante again (…in Vegas). They don’t have a booth at DevLearn, but Nick Washburn, the Director of Riptide’s Learning Division, will be with us on Tuesday and you should definitely give him a high-five. We are so happy that Andy Johnson and Craig Wiggins will be with us on Tuesday and throughout the week at DevLearn.

DevLearn Day 1
OCTOBER 23, 2013
Well back to another expo conference installment – this time it is DevLearn Day 1. Oh, and we also do mobile with tablets, smartphones, and then there was some HTML5 mentioned in many authoring tool products and some of the LMS vendors and a few e-learning tools. There seems to be a lot of vendors at DevLearn (and I saw it at ICE too) whose product is the anti-LMS. The strange thing about this at DevLearn is the blame game. Glad to see they have to pay for that speed. Do they get a refund – DevLearn? Learning 24/7. Themes. Nice design.

Michio Kaku #devlearn opening keynote
NOVEMBER 2, 2011
These are my live notes from today’s devlearn keynote. That’s how we will learn in the future. Learning will change: learning in the Holodeck (the Matrix) – we will be immersed in 360 degrees by wall screens. So, instead of driving, you can sit back and read and learn. With this genome we can grow new organs from our own cells… Today we can grow skin, bladders, blood… Learning will be everywhere – in your car, in your living room, in your bathroom… In the year 2020, when computer chips cost a penny – we can grow organs, we can revolutionize learning itself!
OCTOBER 29, 2015
Just back from DevLearn and still reeling under its effect, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my experience with everyone. Though team Raptivity has been a known face at DevLearn, it was my first visit, and my maiden chance to experience it live, and I must admit, I was bowled over. I was there with two other team members, for all three days of the conference.
Steve Rosenbaum – Curation Nation - #devlearn keynote
NOVEMBER 3, 2011
These are my live notes from DevLearn November 4, 2011 in Las Vegas. Information is knowledge and learning. Learning to play with this stuff is important. devlearn curationSteve Rosenbaum (@magnify) author of Curation Nation ( www.magnify.net , [link] ) The world is changing fast. Curation is a good news/bad news thing. The cloud – sounds so fluffy and nice. It’s being presented as an awesome, good thing. But clouds are often gray and scary – storm clouds! Look at what we’re trying to managing in our personal lives – it’s similar with our data lives! Nigeria is #3.

#Devlearn TinCan panel: #Tincan is rocking our world
Challenge to Learn
NOVEMBER 2, 2012
It is not only a shift from tracking and tracing to enabling learning experiences, it opens op a whole new world of possibilities. We have to redefine what (e)Learning is or could be. Some remarks at the panel triggered me into this observation: There is a lot of confusion about TinCan and the impact on our (learning people) day-to-day activities. And this is big!

If I learn through the exercise that you’re going to tell me the answer, then I don’t do the work to figure out the answer. analysis devlearn instructional designMy live blogged notes with session with Ethan Edwards of Allen Interactions (www.alleninteractions.com). Same issues we’re dealing with in elearning today that we were dealing with 30 years ago. Better elearning, better processes! ADDIE…we’ve heard of it, is it iterative? Regardless of what you do – you need analysis/backgrounding. Often it’s skipped altogether. Or it’s perceived that analysis is already done by SMEs.
