DECEMBER 7, 2011 What Do We Mean When We Say HTML5?
No doubt you’ve heard at least a whisper about HTML5 over the last year. It’s a Flash-killer. It’s the only way to get multimedia on mobile devices. It’s not going to be ready for use until 2022. It’s going to save the world. There’s a lot of hype. One thing that complicates the situation is that the spec is still technically undergoing revision, even as it’s currently being used in web development projects around the world. As of January 2011, it’s considered a “living standard,” and browsers are continuing to change as the spec is revised. So what’s an elearning designer—or developer—to do?

DECEMBER 3, 2011 Slow Learning – #change11
This is a longer post launching my week in the #change11 MOOC (Massively Open Online Course). . Our formal learning approaches too often don’t follow how our brains really work. We have magic now; we can summon up powerful programs to do our bidding, gaze through webcams across distances, and bring anyone and anything to pretty much anywhere. Our limitations are no longer the technology, but our imaginations. The question is, what are we, and should be, doing with this technology? like to look at this a couple of ways. Stop and ask yourself that. Go ahead, I’ll wait. And feel free to share!

DECEMBER 7, 2011 Photography for Elearning Developers - Understanding Exposure
Between the last post and today, I had a great time at Thattekad - one of India's finest bird sanctuaries down south. can't say it was the best photography tour - grey weather, rain and dark clouds never make for a good mix. did have a fascinating birding trip, having spotted 110+ bird species during those three days. Along the way, I got some good photographs but not too many to be frank. Simple?

SPICY LEARNING What is quality when it comes to e-Learning?
| FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2011
Does a good-looking course qualify as good quality? What about an ordinary course that brings about great behavioural change? I’m sure the argument can be extended to both sides. But my argument is to take the middle-path (very Buddha-like indeed, except I see no chance of Nirvana!). As instructional designers, our primary responsibility is to bring about behavioural change, thereby, hopefully, also providing sufficient return on investment for our clients. At the same time, most of us are also looking to maximize our profits. Where does that leave quality? What’s wrong with that? MORE >>
KAPP NOTES An Open LMS: CourseKit
| TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011
A while back I posted on Facebook that LMSs were prisons for content because they tended to keep content inaccessible and unavailable for quick easy access. Well now their is a new kind of LMS that uses a Facebook type interface to conduct academic business. It’s called CourseKit. CourseKit instructor page. The concept is radical on two levels. One, it is a different look and feel to LMS systems and two, the customer is not the IT department of the university, its the individual faculty member. According to an article in Forbes called Will Coursekit Launch Up-End Blackboard? billion.) MORE >>
MANAGING ELEARNING Associations’ Mission to Teach: Social Media vs. Formal Education
| FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2011
In the midst of the Digital Age, we have instant access to knowledge that was once difficult or impossible to find. Just Google it”: a modern day mantra. Social Social media discussions have become a common way to obtain information. Relying on listservs to share information among a community of practitioners has evolved into launching social media networks. Educators, however, would argue that “informal learning”, although [.]. eLearning association distance learning elearning formal education Google instructional design Jon Aleckson social media Web Courseworks MORE >>
- Choosing social media/web 2.0 tools for use in teaching and learning
Originally published on ETC Journal. Connecting formal education to social media/web 2.0 tools is a relatively new area. Educational institutions hope that by purchasing a virtual learning environment (VLE) all of their learning technology needs will be met. However, the world moves fast, and some educators find that our suite of communication and collaboration tools doesn’t cater to our teaching and learning needs as well as they might. Interestingly, VLEs are usually more suited to managing rather than learning (but that’s for another day). This will give you a starting point. Diigo). MORE >>
CLIVE ON LEARNING Face-to-face is for special occasions
| FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2011
Ask yourself. What proportion of the music that you consume is at a live performance? Chances are it's something between 0 and 10%. What proportion of the drama that you watch is at the theatre, rather than at the cinema or on TV? I'd be surprised if it's more than a few percent. And what proportion of the sport you watch is in a stadium rather than on TV. You get the idea. And yet, there's a good possibility that those live events that you have attended - music, drama, sport or whatever - are among the most memorable occasions of your life. Perhaps even peak experiences. MORE >>
