How to Identify Truly Exceptional Talent
FEBRUARY 9, 2017
Ozzie moved from Data General, to IBM/Lotus to Microsoft to the startup Talko — each time for a bigger challenge. There’s a great story about Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington’s pianist and collaborator that tells us something about truly exceptional talent. Strayhorn met Ellington in 1938 at age 23 following one of his concerts in Pittsburgh. You can guess the result.
Do you know your E-learning Buckets?
APRIL 3, 2013
In the past I've used systems like wikis, Lotus Notes, and SharePoint to serve as knowledge management systems. By Jonathan Shoaf. I've discovered recently I don't like the term e-learning. This is because I recently had to go through the process of understanding what salary you pay someone who is an e-learning developer. It turns out that it varies dramatically depending on who you ask. This is because everyone has a different idea of what e-learning is and what it takes to develop it. So if you tell me you are an e-learning expert, it means nothing to me. Self-Paced Learning.
A Snagit Milestone - Join us for The Forge, November 10 at 2pm EST
NOVEMBER 7, 2011
Lotus 1-2-3, WordPerfect, Harvard Graphics were popular pieces of software. Think back to 1991. Remember where you were? What were you doing? What did your hair look like (I was rocking some fantastic 90's hair! Hot rollers and hair spray, baby! )? Remember what tech was like back in 1991? 6 pound 'laptops'. Apple introduced the PowerBook laptop. Remember Compuserve and BBS ? Yes, Snagit!
True Pioneer: William C Norris
APRIL 7, 2012
PLATO Notes was among the world’s first online message boards, and years later became the direct progenitor of the well known early email system Lotus Notes. With all the discussion we have about learning technologies, social networking and relevance to learning it’s worth spending a few minutes to reflect on, and be humbled by, the work of a man who, at the height of his pioneering career in the mainframe computer industry, had a vision to improve learning that we not only enjoy today but take for granted. USA. He had Parkinson’s disease and was 95 years of age.
Asynch, Synch.And the Winner is?
SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
I have seen SBL courses – i.e. classes used with Lotus Notes, so you do not have to have a LMS to have a SBL. I will not lie. Not everyone loves e-learning, nor will they. That is reality, but it is not because they find the whole online learning experience to be so distasteful, rather their like or dislike is tied to the way they need to learn. I stress NEED. Because if they need to be in a classroom setting or structure, even if they are not paying attention, then they are not true independent learners. It has nothing to do with face to face interaction. Face to Face. Failures.
Online Learning in Education
JANUARY 3, 2012
Popular ones included Lotus Notes, Blackboard and WebCT. In 1993, Jones International made its debut on the internet. The first 100% online university. In 1999, Jones International became the first online university in the U.S. to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. By 1999, other online universities were on the scene including the University of Phoenix and Western Governors University which was a consortium of small colleges in the rocky mountain area. Some online universities offered degrees for as low as $4,800 USD, and a doctorate as low as $12K. Not in the U.S.

Free day at Car Week
AUGUST 20, 2011
Coming home along 17-Mile Drive, the traffic coming the other way included two two-seater Rolls, a Facel Vega, a Masterati, three or four AMG gullwings, Astons, E-types, Alfas, Lotus, Corvettes, and (they’re everywhere!) Yesterday evening I heard the throaty exhaust note of a V12 and looked up from my Mac to see a bright yellow Lamborghini pass beneath my window. And then another.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning
MARCH 3, 2008
Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning. It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions. I'm writing this post for both attendees of the session to have some notes and for people who were not at the session to hopefully get value from the discussion that happened there. as I expected.

Bloggers whose views I otherwise respect have been waxing lyrical about a slew of IBM and Lotus videos on KM released onto YouTube. One ( original video here ) in particular, made by Lotus in 2000 (back when KM was still chic) particularly gets my goat. Gen C - Creative Generalist. Defining a generation that's not defined by age but rather by activity. Empowered, participative, and thriving on inter-relationships. Gone Fischin' - dangerously irrelevant. Cynicism and the Propaganda of KM - Green Chameleon. I just don't get it. IT Confidential: What Web 2.0
Keeping Up - April's Big Question
APRIL 2, 2010
April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
DECEMBER 2, 2008
As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

If your CEO comes back from a KM conference and sets up Lotus, LiveLink or eRoom with complex access privilege's, you should question if they have really got the message. Personal Toolkit: Apertures of articulation. We work and learn in living networks. Together, we comprise great bodies of knowledge and expertise. Getting New Managers Up to Speed.

Won't you please, please HELP me!

You opened up the course in a tab in Lotus Notes.no I'd like to think my e-learning is so intuitive that there is no need to add help. Pause for applause???) The reality is that no matter how brain dead simple I think it is, there is always a chance that it won't actually be me taking the course. That's right, it will be someone else with a different brain, a different level of experience, and a different familiarity with a web browser. How many people have discovered the "I can't find the buttons" issue in usability testing? wonder the video is choppy! need help. How do you handle help?

1995: IBM buys Lotus. The latest edition of Personal Computer World (PCW) magazine includes an interesting review of the key events and changes that have occurred in the thirty years since its first publication. Here's a quick summary of what PCW has reported over this period (bear in mind that PCW is a UK magazine and its focus is heavily PC): 1978: Launch of Commodore Pet, with 9" monitor and 16K RAM. Launch of Apple II, with 16 colours, a cassette drive and a resolution of 280x160. All for $2500. Intel develops the 8086 processor. 1979: Space Invaders console arrives. launched.

For example, in my work place we use a Lotus Notes database to have discussion board postings. Do you ever feel like you need to reboot your brain? Feel like you've got several errant processes running and you need to reset them? I felt like that this week. Unfortunately for us humans rebooting is not that simple. We can't just flip a switch and reset everything. However, I do think we can look at the processes in our lives that are out of control and deal with them one by one. For example, my sleep process is stuck on too low of a setting. It can get overwhelming.

Example: Rumor has it that Groupware was started as a series of custom projects Lotus was doing for one of its big installations of Notes. Playing Offense vs. Playing Defense. I hate playing defense in business. It doesn’t happen all the time. But being behind a competitor in terms of feature development, scrambling to do custom work for a large client, or doing an acquisition because you’re getting blocked out of an emerging space – whatever it is, it just feels rotten when it comes up. It’s a scramble. That said, sometimes you don’t have a choice and have to play defense.

Out with the old LMS in with the new: Part I
APRIL 7, 2010
In Lotus Notes and Outlook you can track the email, to verify they opened it and it got there. You have had this relationship with a close colleague, someone who was there for you when you initially started to move forward, but over time you realized that your BFF is nothing more than a rogue in sheep’s clothing. Time to find a new BFF LMS. People tend to leave their current LMS for another LMS for the following reasons: It’s capabilities and features are too limited to what we need to do. Customer service is still a new concept to them. How do I exit? When do I notify?

Now I’m going to date myself here a little, but I remember using the old Lotus ScreenCam utility to create these computer how-to’s. Get happy: TechSmith ‘s annual ScreencastCamp is just a couple weeks away! Can you believe it?! One of the coolest things about ScreencastCamp is that it brings together people who may not otherwise have an opportunity to meet.

And not surprisingly, vendors are encouraging the trend–Microsoft and IBM have added wikis and blogging capabilities to enterprise apps including SharePoint and Lotus Quickr, while Google and upstarts like Socialtext, PBwiki, and Jive Software are luring corporate users with freebie accounts and dead-simple deployment. Warning to IT folks: Mayday! Mayday! Turf is being threatened.

Is Attention Important in Learning?
The Learning Circuits
OCTOBER 11, 2005
IBM also is looking at solutions to manage scheduling for the next version of Lotus Workplace, part of IBM's collection of software that rivals Office. But I don't think the scheduling tools that Microsoft and Lotus are building are it. A recent CNET article noted that the typical office worker is interrupted every three minutes by an e-mail, IM, phone call, etc. If you are working on something creative, it takes about 8 minutes for our brains to get into that state. With all these distractions how is anyone able to get anything done? And you know what? The result?
Itâ€™s a matter of culture
The Learning Circuits
FEBRUARY 19, 2007
They could have encouraged rather than neglected the potential of the expensive and hard to deploy groupware (Lotus Notes) they began investing in during the 90s. I'd like to follow up on my last post and also weigh in on the question of investment in formal training and informal learning. I tend to see the world through my own professional lens, which is that of culture. Although usually taken to be about the behavioral differences between people of different national, geographical, ethnic, religious origins, culture is everywhere and constitutes a property of all groups.
