Maslow, technology and learning
Learning with e's
JANUARY 16, 2017
I love a good mash-up. But a mash-up takes several ideas, formats or sources and places them together in a new form, to say something new. How much more could we say about the uses of technology when we place them up against a pre-digital age theory such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model? It's a digital age version of synthesis. That's why I like it.
Tools to make you drool – video training toys for IDs
AUGUST 20, 2012
If you’d like to share your training with the rest of the world, you can publish it to YouTube with a single click. While it allows you to integrate video into the e-learning module, you can set up an interface that pulls out bullet points and diagrams (from a Powerpoint deck or other document) in a sidebar to support the video and provide additional information.

and Edupunk movements - the do it yourself culture in which costly proprietary systems and tools are spurned in favour of haphazard, unbranded, informal mashups and loose aggregations of tools. The video sharing service YouTube's usage statistics should convince even the strongest sceptic that people really want to share their content. The shift is from push to pull. Unported License.

The eLearning Coach
JANUARY 3, 2010
Your collage might show a book from Amazon, a YouTube video and a page from a blog or web site. Create a Mashup.

Vision 2016 - An Interview with Todd Kasenberg
DECEMBER 24, 2015
More about Todd here: [link] Below are excerpts from the interview: What are some of the key eLearning trends that you think would surface, or pick up, in 2016? We’re excited about the possibilities of merging curation as a learning designer activity mashed up with the production of rich multimedia e-books that are, at best, learning program delivery tools, and at least job aids. Interactive video is now a mature and reasonably affordable market, and YouTube’s success just makes it obvious that video is appreciated. HTML5 is in. How would it impact?

E-Learning Jargon: What you might think it is.well…
SEPTEMBER 22, 2014
It comes from YouTube or Vivemo or similar, and then embedded in a course or directly into your learning platform or maybe just right within the sites themselves; in the EDTECH space – YouTube rules. Oh, there is also API (Application Program Interface) and Mashups (two more APIs – great example – Google Maps whereas they show restaurants, businesses, etc.). Then a wrap-up review of WOLC, the following week. As many of you are aware the e-learning world is well known for its jargon. Gamification and Gaming. The E-Learning World. Gaming Elements.

Groom's popular and anarchic blog Bavatuesdays is a regular port of call for all those seeking this kind of eclectic and irreverent mashup of concepts, thoughts and opinions. He featured a bizzare YouTube video of 'Dr Oblivion' introducing ds106. I say among other things, because Groom is known more readily for several activities that outshine his day job.

Understanding Web 2.0
AUGUST 16, 2009
Wikipedia has a write up on Web 2.0 The ideas that make up Web 2.0 are social networking, web mashups, and using the web to store and create content. Object centric networks like Flickr and YouTube use content as the impetus of social networking. A web mashup is the second concept in what makes up Web 2.0. Web mashups make sharing information easier by allowing web technologies to comunicate with each other through web services and other technologies. iGoogle does a good job of this type of mashup by aggregation.

What Can You Expect in 2013?
JANUARY 10, 2013
Moving from pictures to video: Movies, television and YouTube have defined video as a powerful learning medium. According to Cisco’s 2011 Visual Networking Index, 78 hours of new video content is uploaded to YouTube every minute, and Cisco estimates that half of all Internet content is video, increasing to 90 percent in a few years. The video trend will continue in 2013 as video is embedded into Web courses, attached to learning databases and appears on self-generated YouTube sites, Skype and video-enabled webcasting. It is also popular. Caroline C.

If they were doing it, Facebook like page, a crummy blog that looks nothing like a real blog, a Twitter like feed, maybe RSS, text chat and YouTube functions and upload/download angle. Funny, thing about those vendors, either their entire consumer base rose up and screamed we want tablets, or perhaps – and I know – it never happens in any industry – just perhaps, they looked again and said, “I see money in those tablets. Vendors are adding more “comments and voting i.e. yes or no or thumbs up/thumbs down features. Tablets? Social learning?

JANUARY 9, 2009
Publisher further fosters learner social interactions through a variety of social media within the courses themselves; authors can embed course-specific blogs, comment and ratings capabilities, and even YouTube videos and Google Mashups. Social learning, on the other hand, empowers organization from the bottom-up through transparency, trust, and self-direction. It’s Friday yay! That means it’s time to feature another LMS that kicks ass! Mzinga is the result of a merger between KnowledgePlanet and Shared Insights at the end of 2007. Thanks Dave! You guys rock! *.

For example, if you build rapid elearning courses with Articulate products there are all sorts of resources available to you: Articulate’s Facebook page keeps you up-to-date on news and information.

Well not surprisingly we decided to schedule a further, more by way of a heads up session, where I took the opportunity to show where and how observers could capture eLearning activities and participation, along with some examples of good practice from trials that I had run in the past.

Videos – the real thing – Link to YouTube videos, upload their own videos, learners then can add comments; system identifies number of people who view their video and last time it was viewed.

Google-Assisted â€œSearchâ€? Learningâ€¦but pls donâ€™t say â€œaccording to Googleâ€?
SEPTEMBER 4, 2008
Many did not grow up using print encyclopedias and dictionaries like many older (some Gen X, boomer, mature) workers. So then I ran across a decent article that I read through and thought I should buck up and revisit the things that make Google such a large part of my life. YouTube Remixer allows learners to make video mashups. What do you do when youâ€™re connected and need a quick answer to a question? You probably just â€œgoogle itâ€ and then click the Wikipedia entry for whatever you’re “googling. In my case usually my Dad. Splitting hairs.
2008 in retrospect
DECEMBER 26, 2008
I’m closing the chapter on 2008 and gearing up for 2009 and beyond. Marc Rosenberg, Allison Rossett, Barbara Pellow, and I led Up to Speed, an event in NYC for Mimeo. Posted my first video mash-up to YouTube. Looking back, I see lots of smoke but little fire. Next year, I intend to start making the world a better place, and that’s going to take more oomph, focus, and work with others. Note: this post documents my journey through the past 12 months. Be forewarned: it’s me, me, me. Winter. Submitted my DNA to 23 and Me for decoding. Spring.
