eLearning Cyclops

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.

DevLearn evaluation: The gap is widening: We are in a crisis!

Challenge to Learn

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.

Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive


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 14 Reflections

Clark Quinn

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.

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!

Inspiration at DevLearn 2014: From Andrea May (Dashe & Thomson)

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?

DevLearn Reflections


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.

DevLearn Day 1

eLearning 24-7

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.
