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?

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.

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?"

Reflections on DevLearn 2010

After the LearnTrends conferences , I wait six weeks until I send out the evals. The new face of learning was made of our faces.
