A few more thoughts about April Learntrends

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Reflection is vital to learning. I am delighted to report that recordings of the April Learntrends sessions are online. After all, April Learntrends was an experiment in socially-mediated learning in lieu of traditional presentation. Congratulations to Scott Skibell for creating and uploading both standard-format videos and mp4s that you can download to your iPhone. To be sure, I’d firm up some of the individual offerings had I to do it over again. This was an experiment in making an event more informal and spontaneous. c.1380, “act of presenting,&# from O.Fr. from L.
