Workplace learning in 10 years

E-Learning Provocateur

The Learning Circuits Big Question for this month is: If you peer inside an organization in 10 years time and you look at how workplace learning is being supported by that organization, what will you see? The responsibility for e-learning development will decentralise across the organisation. E-Learning development should be no different. M-Learning will be popular.

Tools of the trade

Learning with e's

I was quite impressed by Joyce Seitzinger's Professional Learning Environment (PLN) model that she presented at Deakin University in Melbourne this week. I assume that this is because most of the tools she identifies as falling into this category of PLN deployment is push technology (RSS feeds, Google Reader etc).

The changing Web

Learning with e's

Almost everyone, it seems, is using some element of social media in the planning, development, delivery, management or evaluation of teaching and learning.

Creating avenues for On-Demand Learning in the Modern Workplace

G-Cube

Learning at the workplace is a continuous process. While formal training also has a place, more and more organizations are aligning towards informal ways of organizational learning.

The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc. By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

Will Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Mashups be Used in Corporate eLearning?

Tony Karrer

I saw another post from Dave Boggs, Has The Blogging Trend Begun To Fade, Even Before It Ever Got Started In Corporate Training / e-Learning Environments? In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. A reference hybrid embeds learning objects (e.g., and web 2.0 often lump them together). However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate.
