Workplace learning in 10 years

E-Learning Provocateur

As staff familiarise themselves with blogs, wikis, RSS, YouTube and Twitter, and as more tech-savvy Gen-Y’s & Z’s join the organisation, the demand for self-paced, self-directed learning will accelerate. This shift will be accompanied by formal acknowledgements of informal learning. Learning development should be no different. driver of this shift will be people power.

Curation: Making Sense of Digital Information

The Peformance Improvement

So much information; so little time. We are inundated with email, tweets, blog posts, Linkedin updates and comments, Facebook news feeds and messages, rss feeds, in addition to old-tech media like newspapers, magazines, TV, and radio.  It’s more than the human brain can comprehend. Technology allows consumers of information to also be curators of information.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

Enter the Informal Learning Environment (ILE). Occupying a place on the continuum somewhere between a VLE and a PLE, an ILE is an informal learning environment that a facilitator manages on behalf of a group of learners. Don’t forget podcasts, RSS feeds, slideshows, infographics, animations, articles and real-life case studies. Unlike a VLE, an ILE is strictly informal.

Google is failing us: how to manage the information overflow?

Challenge to Learn

We are all struggling with the ever-increasing amount of information that we need to manage. Steve Rosenbaum pointed out in his key note address at DevLearn that search engines like Google become less reliable and that we have to find other ways to manage the information overflow. This is just an illustration that shows that search results are not that reliable as we assume. I’m not sure if the source of the problem are the sites that contain this incorrect information or that Google screws up. Curators (people not software) who filter information for you.

Information Filtering

Tony Karrer

We’ve got plenty of information sources already. At the same time, we need lots of help filtering the flood of information. Harold is a master of that and effectively uses twitter, RSS reader and lots of other sources to bring across and filter information. My strong belief is that there is more and more of a need for effective information filtering. Basically, easy ways to get the information that you want or need. Heck, a lot of what learning professionals do is filter information. both agree and disagree. He’s right. eLearning Technology.

Blogs and RSS as Learning Tools

eLearning Weekly

Many of us techies have been using RSS for years, and you may even run your own blog. think there’s a ton of potential related to RSS in terms of learning and I don’t think many people are harnessing it well (yet). Think of it this way: As a worker, wouldn’t it be helpful to regularly receive bulletins, tips, tricks, and other relevant information while on the job? RSS provides an excellent framework for distributing information to groups of people in settings like this. First, blogs and RSS don’t get much respect in the enterprise.

RSS Primer from the Read/Write Web

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

One of my 3 sessions at the upcoming eLearning Guild Conference in Boston is about RSS and eLearning. So, it was wonderful luck to find a great post from Alex Iskold on the Read/Write Web blog called The Future of RSS. "In short, because of RSS ubiquity it is now a very attractive delivery medium for all kinds of content. So in this post, we look at RSS today and ask if RSS is evolving into a tool for delivering complex, semantically rich information." Hopefully, our discussion next week can help fill in the gaps

Informal Learning Technology

There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning. So as you read this, keep in mind that Stephen was primarily talking about technology that can support a Formal Learning Event that heavily leverages Informal / Social Learning as it's primary mechanism. In some ways, you could say that this might be an interesting model to experiment with as a formal/informal hybrid at the start of some new project. Thanks Stephen for a great post and a lot of insights into the technology side of supporting informal learning.

Grazr - organizing RSS just keeps getting better

Or information mapping ? Well Grazr, to me, looks like reverse information, or mind, mapping. RSS has the potential to become the next learning pipeline, and OPML is just a piece of that. will definitely be working this into my RSS presentation (session 411) at DevLearn2006 I just found this on TechCrunch. haven't had much time to review it but from first glance it looks like something I've been thinking about for quite some time. Before I get into that let's look at what Grazr is. Definitely read the TechCrunch review. But does anyone remember mind mapping ? think.

RSS: The new intranet protocol? Learning2.0 behind the firewall

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

From ZDNet is the article RSS: The new intranet protocol? RSS is the LMS killer! It's not necessary when IT departments are deploying the informal learning tools behind the firewall. An LMS should simply track usage stats for the small amount of remaining courses and then somehow try to get a data collection point around the informal learning that is occuring. Because it looks like LMS providers have been wanting to become all things to all people by trying to add KM, eLearning, ILT management, learning2.0, etc. all into one package. And I know I'm not the only one.

The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

Much of our learning is informal and happens online. Instead of learners going to information, the situation is now the opposite. A lot of learning comes to the people even without them explicitly searching for it. In the form of RSS or news feed or social media interactions, people are exposed to information more than ever before. Image Credit – Freepik.com.
