Dont Waste Your Time
APRIL 3, 2014
This resource from Vicki Davis – “A Guidebook for Social Media in the Classroom” on Edutopia is a good starting point for planning the inclusion of social media in learning spaces.

How Social Learning is Powering Up Today’s Workplaces
MARCH 22, 2015
“ Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do. ” – Albert Bandura (Originator of Social Learning Theory). “ The research isn’t heartening. We also have been “learning-out-loud” and “working-out-loud”, thereby trying our best to practice this form of learning.

Learning with e's
JULY 8, 2011
In my Learning is learning post yesterday, I started a debate about andragogy and pedagogy. held the position that the theory of andragogy (Malcolm Knowles) adds very little to our understanding of learning. In some ways, I argued, andragogy theory seems outmoded in the light of recent rapid developments in new teaching methods, learning resources and digital media.

What I am hearing and seeing in E-Learning
FEBRUARY 7, 2013
What has always amazed me are number of e-learning vendor web sites whose design looks like it came from 1995 when Netscape ruled the land. You also can’t leave out m-learning platforms, assessment tool providers, web conferencing, audio conferencing and a couple social platforms. Upside Learning. Here are the ways vendors are doing it (which explains why it works): Vendors create their own apps – it maybe as simple as a new gadget such as learning game. This is an exciting time to be in the e-learning space. Learning 24/7. Coggno.

M-Learning Message Home
FEBRUARY 24, 2014
He faced a similar challenge we in the e-learning world suffer from today – not enough information on the mobile frontier. Except our space isn’t the universe, rather learning. Mobile to Me is not necessarily M-Learning to you (from the vendors’ perspective). Mobile is still on the rise, with more vendors (LMS, authoring tools, assessment, e-learning tools, etc.) Those who know subscribe to my Linkedin group (E-Learning 24/7) will know that I recommend they just use the term TinCan and move on, but that is for another day.

Learning Locker: it’s your data
MAY 23, 2013
Guest blogger: Dave Tosh. A new product that we are currently working on here at HT2, Learning Locker, has several important aspects at its core, one of which is data ownership. In a nutshell, Learning Locker provides a destination where users can create a personal locker housing their learning data that they can then put to work for them. The data comes from a variety of sources including the web and any learning platform that exports Tin Can statements. The final method is via learning platforms you use in school, at college, at work or online. Export.
What I’ve learned in my first week of a dual-layer MOOC (DALMOOC)
OCTOBER 28, 2014
This last week we launched our open course on Data, Analytics, and Learning on edX. In the process, I’ve used roughly any tool I can get my hands on, including Second Life, Twitter, Facebook, G+, Netvibes, blogs, Wikispaces, Diigo, and so on. Essentially, in this model, we take away the sweet spot of learning. Learning transparently is an act of teaching.

Enterprise Mobile Learning 2011 - Year in Review
DECEMBER 28, 2011
It’s time once again to take stock of what happened in enterprise mobile learning and see if any of my 2011 predictions hit their intended targets. As I stated in the previous post assessing my 2010 predictions, the size and complexity of mobile learning projects/programs will continue to expand across all geographical and line-of-business boundaries. a.k.a.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
MARCH 16, 2009
In turn, teachers enthusiastically transformed themselves into facilitators , guiding and coaching the participants to inquire, explore, discover and even generate new learnings. Yes, workplace learning has thankfully become more constructivist and even connectivist over time, but we all know that instructivism is still alive and well. Even in the e‑learning space, online courses are typically linear, virtual classes frequently replicate their bricks-and-mortar antecedents, while podcasts, of course, are quintessentially instructivist. Instructivism is dead.
Learning with e's
MARCH 20, 2013
In education, the common objective is usually to learn specific content, skills or competencies within defined areas. Ostensibly, learning is an individual goal, and each student does tend to learn in their own way, using their own favoured approaches and tools. We refer to this as personalised learning ( a video explains ). There are other spaces to use.

E-Learning Screen recording and video solutions – Should b simple, so why isn’t it?
JUNE 25, 2012
Less vendors are offering the HTML5 output, which seems to be strange, especially as more e-learning vendors as a whole are jumping right in. Again, this makes the most sense, and again there are products out there that do it (not in the e-learning space). Ability to add your company’s logo to the video – at the bottom left of the screen – rather than just in the opening – a big win for those folks in sales or firms who provide online learning to clients. Learning 24/7. and then add text boxes, lines, etc. Audio Recording and Editing.

Innovation in open online courses
OCTOBER 7, 2014
In a few weeks, our edX course Data, Analytics, and Learning (#DALMOOC https://www.edx.org/course/utarlingtonx/utarlingtonx-link5-10x-data-analytics-2186 ) will start. Since MOOCs gained popularity with top tier universities, significant effort has been put into finding new ways to present learning content. The connection between learning and application is hampered as MOOC resources do not always persist after a course has ended and there is limited search functionality in MOOCs. Aside from this hype, the value of social learning is clear in academic literature.
