eLearning Predictions Further Thoughts

Tony Karrer

Social Learning Communities It was interesting that ASTD DC / Todd Slater has created a Ning community. That certainly goes along with what we’ve done with LearnTrends and what’s going on with social learning. Is Mobile Learning Real This Time? Mobile learning a couple years ago was an attempt to put courses on mobile devices. If you are working for a company that falls in the first category (no social media please), its better that you install a Twitter mobile app on your cell phone and not use the office computer at all for tweeting.

Learned about Learning in 2009

Tony Karrer

It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year. I’ve been doing this the past few years. Knowledge Work Skills / Work Literacy Having realized in 2007 that there's a very important Knowledge Worker Skill Gap , I felt the need in 2008 to find ways to help knowledge workers and organizations build skills like Leveraging Networks , Network Feedback , Finding Expertise , Using Social Media to Find Answers to Questions , Learning through Conversation and searching, scanning, etc.

Online social networks, learning and viral expansion loops

Sticky Learning

The most common question at these is, 'so what have you been up to lately?" I respond, 'well I'm becoming more and more interested in the use of social media and microblogging for learning', I then get puzzled looks that say, "too much time on your hands", "what is he talking about?" For me though I see a real role for social media as a platform for business learning.

Reflections on DevLearn 2010

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

After the LearnTrends conferences , I wait six weeks until I send out the evals. The new face of learning was made of our faces. Mark Oehlert ran Social Media Camp on Wednesday and in true Web 2.0 DevLearn is great for renewing f2f relationships. I was delighted to find my Belgian friend Inge de Waart at the Mobile Learning Camp. Get it? Embrace changes.

Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

sensed that learning and knowledge management were converging and invited bloggers form both sides to get together at the Tidehouse to share viewpoints and guzzle beer. If you’re into meta-learning, you should track what’s going on there. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done. I can’t tell where one stops and the other begins. tools.
