Elements For Constructing Social Learning Environments
MARCH 10, 2010
Everyone’s been talking about Social Learning Environments (SLEs), the internet offers a plethora of tools that could become a part of a SLE. Jane Hart wrote about ‘How to Create a Social Learning Environment’ in the November 09 issue of Inside Learning Technologies. While some of these tools cost money, the bulk of them are free.
New learning environments
Learning with e's
DECEMBER 17, 2015
Our final #EDENchat of 2015 focused on new learning environments, namely MOOCs, flipped classrooms and blended learning methods. Those who participated shared their experiences of MOOCs and flipped learning both as teachers and as learners. One of the key discussion points was around the nature of these approaches and their effectiveness as learning environments.
Doctoring the Informal Learning Environment
MAY 3, 2011
Recently Anne Marie blogged Location and Learning (which I have reproduced here) and she asked me whether or not I consider her central idea an example of an Informal Learning Environment (ILE). They generally have a haphazard learning experience. But placements are very rich environments with many unique opportunities to learn. So what can we do?
The evolution of personal learning environments
OCTOBER 24, 2014
A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc. By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE). The coming of technology has naturally exposed us to more entertainment, and at the same time, to more learning. Much of our learning is informal and happens online. Image Credit – Freepik.com.

What It Takes to Have a Healthy Learning Environment in Your Organization

sumptuous spread of cerebral and endorphin-inducing fare, the subtext was learning, learning and more learning. That is a strident example of the reach and power of social learning. And online learning, the ubiquitously-used learning at leisure and learning on the move with eLearning and mLearning ? Does it have to be just the one way or the highway?
The Future of eLearning and Immersive Learning Environments
FEBRUARY 19, 2016
Elearning continues to rapidly evolve as technologies such as gamification, immersive learning environments ( ILEs ), MOOCS, mobile learning and other modern training delivery methods penetrate the marketplace. What are immersive learning environments? They relearn even the simplest of tasks, like turning a wrench, underwater, to simulate the harsh low-gravity and airless environment of space. The NASA learning environment is indeed immersive, but it’s real, not virtual. learning LMS eLL
Avoiding Information Overload in Online Learning Environments: An e-learning perspective
JULY 16, 2014
The effectiveness and impact of technology-aided learning in the corporate sector is unquestionable. With the aid of technology, training and learning has become more accessible to a wider spread of corporate learners, no matter where they are located across the globe. The learner group has to be made aware of the e-learning initiative well before it is implemented.
Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment
SEPTEMBER 21, 2010
In the comments section of my previous post, Mike Caulfield kindly pointed me to the article Envisioning the Post-LMS Era: The Open Learning Network by Jonathan Mott. I was immediately interested because, like me, Mott is striving to bridge the gap between the organisation’s LMS and the learner’s PLE. Mott’s blueprint is the Open Learning Network (OLN). Amen to that.

Culture and Language Diversity in Online Learning Environment
JUNE 25, 2015
If there is one dimension that needs careful planning when designing an online learning program or a course, this is the culture and language diversity. By providing options, you are encouraging non-native English speakers to learn a concept in their own language and boost their productivity. As a result, motivation and interest levels were higher and so were learning achievements. This enables the students to be able to apply their learning instantly to their performance context. Global migration has become an increasingly common phenomenon.

Design of Complex Learning Environments
Viplav Baxi Meanderings
FEBRUARY 6, 2014
This year I will focus my efforts on the design of learning environments that are complex – adaptive, emergent, self-organizing, chaotic and personal. Instead, order and regularity emerge from widely distributed bottom-up interactions of subsystems, some with centralized control and others fully distributed. I am particularly interested in complex adaptive systems in the context of learning because I think that is how learning really is.

Create Autonomy in Gamification and Other Learning Environments
JANUARY 28, 2014
When thinking about creating a gamification experience (or any learning experience), allow and encourage the learner to make meaningful and consequential choices. Fake choices = fake interest in the learning event. When a learner makes a choice in a gamification environment, the system, teacher or environment responds in some way. Clark & Mayer, 2011; Reeve et al.,
A draft learning environment typology
APRIL 25, 2013
recent set of course capstone projects got me thinking more deeply about my learning environment design framework – and I’d love to get feedback on some of my (hopefully) improved thinking on the model. The diversity of proposals got me thinking about learning environment design – about whether there were different types of environments that suggest different approaches.
A learning environment’s ideal state
OCTOBER 22, 2011
I’ve been creating some documentation on learning environment design for a workshop I’m doing in a couple of weeks at Learning 2011. Today, I was noodling over the criteria for a rich learning environment. Whether you are designing an environment for other learners, or paying attention to enriching your own learning environment, here are some test points to determine if it’s a thing of beauty. If any of those factors are weak, than learning will be severely limited. Learning Environment Design quality

Where do you put a learning environment?
FEBRUARY 28, 2013
Where, exactly, does a learning environment go? It seems an odd question, doesn’t it? I’ve been considering the question sincemy presentation on curating a learning environment at last week’s Training 2013 conference (see Learning Environments by Design ). To reiterate, the “learning environment” I am talking about here is a collection of resources and activities for learning, deliberately curated with a specific learning need in mind. Even resources on learning to learn can be highly valued.

Recently, this environment was put to use again to conduct a program titled BaseCamp 2011, where nearly fifty managers got together to learn select topics in strategy, finance and leadership. The online social learning program was conducted over a duration of six weeks. This new experience helped us gain some more insights in social online learning.

Do you go to the football field to learn music? Or to the art gallery to learn fencing? Or to a library to learn oratory? What should a modern day learning environment look like? Should it extend the notion of the classroom (and the class) in the belief that this notion is capable of handling the new digital and social learning environment? The Flipped Classroom has caught the imagination of the world as a way to use digital technology to invert/optimize the use of learning events/activities inside and outside class. You don’t.
