MAY 4, 2012 Educational Game Design Q&A
I was contacted for a research project, and asked a series of questions. Thought I’d document the answers here, too. How many years have you been designing educational games? Over 30, actually, off and on. Started with my first job out of college, designing and programming educational computer games. Been a recurrent theme in my career since then. Please use one of your games as an example.

MAY 4, 2012 Simplified Learning
I have always sought simplicity in every learning solution that I develop. As our products evolve to simplify more and more complicated day to day problems, the learning solutions must be simplified as well. My post about the Future of Organizational Learning was a thought in this direction but on a broader scale. Large enterprise products solve complex domain specific problems.

MAY 4, 2012 This house believes the only way is e-learning
This was the motion I had to argue for in a debate last week at a conference of NHS pharmacists. definitely got the short straw because it's impossible to defend an absolute. And of course e-learning is not the only way. decided to argue instead for the idea that e-learning (defined very broadly) is where attention should be focused given the problems we're currently facing in workplace learning. Traditional training cannot help us to overcome these problems. The only way to overcome these obstacles is through e-learning. The only way is e-learning

MAY 4, 2012 Stealth Messaging for Chief Learning Officers (and other learning executives)
After years of being embedded as a consultant in organizations who have struggled to move their stakeholders beyond a training-centric model to a performance-improvement approach, I finally realized that our painstakingly slow progress might be due to our own failures in getting our messages heard. We in the workplace learning field are over-reliant on conveying our messages in a way that attempts to connect to our stakeholders' logical, analytical, conscious cognitive processing. We've been trying to sing underwater. If link doesn't work for you, go to Work-Learning Research catalog. .

- Manual, not automatic, for sense-making
I started Friday’s Finds three years ago , in an attempt to make my finds on Twitter more explicit. had been using Twitter actively for over a year at this time and realized that I was not making much sense of it. Now I make a weekly summary of my favourites: reviewed, filtered and reassessed. The actual tools I use for personal knowledge management are quite limited. That’s about it. prefer simpler tools that force me to think and connect by myself. If it was automatic I wouldn’t think about it much, but that’s what I want to do; think more, not less.

ELEARNING 24-7 How to Sell a LMS
| FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2012
One of my favorite movies of all time is Glengarry Glen Ross. The film should be required viewing to anyone who is in sales. Sales at its most basic form is about enticing people to purchase your product. Yet, it continues to amaze me at the number of people in this industry who fail such a basic concept. Listening. We do this every day. We talk to people – friends, colleagues, the person at the store, etc., and listen. But are we really listening? How often have you listened to someone, but are thinking of other things? How often are you not really “listening”? We offer that. MORE >>
MINDFLASH Are Your Training Methods Outdated? Survey Says: Yes
| FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2012
Like a carton of milk that’s past its sell date, the concept of something being “out-dated” means it’s been superseded by something better, and can safely be discarded. But according to a new survey, many training managers in the U.K. may have missed this very basic point. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)/Cornerstone OnDemand Learning and Talent Development Survey 2012 (yeah, that’s a mouthful) asked British training professionals about what techniques they view as effective and which ones they actually use.

LEARNING DEVELOPMENTS Articulate understands the practitioners.learn the lesson
| FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2012
I've been in the software industry for a long time and I've never seen the perfect product. As I've been reading all the hype on Articulate Storyline this week, I am reminding myself of that. It looks like a great product. But a game-changer.not likely. software tool is not a game-changer but a community of practitioners can be. agree with R.J. Jacquez when he lists Articulate community as his number one reason to appreciate Articulate Storyline. It is how we use the content authoring software that really matters. That is where I believe Articulate creates competitive advantage. Lectora? MORE >>
