Is it e-Learning or eLearning?

Tony Karrer

To back me up I went to Google Trends to see what the trend is for people searching. Here's what I saw: Worldwide - "eLearning" has almost caught "e-Learning" in terms of what people use in their searches. In the United States - "eLearning" is used more often in searches than "e-Learning". I just saw Gabe's post E-Learning: Will We One Day Lose the E? More to It.

My New Training Magazine Online Column

Kapp Notes

To help do that there are websites online where you can search for people , generally called something like a people search engine. = __ Recommended Games and Gadgets Recommended Books Content GuideOver at the ManageSmarter site, I've started writing a column called Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning. The first installment is titled Defining (or Redefining) a Gamer. It is part of Training Magazine's efforts to provide more web-only content. Let me know what you think.

Amusing Findings in Keywords

Tony Karrer

Quick update (1/5/2008) - I feel much better now - 3 people have searched and found me through the highly relevant search - incredibly cool elearning guy. So the comment that I may be messing with search results and making myself even more lame seems to be turning out correct. While I had dismissed it, I'm now no longer #1 for the search - top ten lamest people - even though I was yesterday before Google spidered this page. But at least I'm not top ten lamest people! People search in order to find information. Try it yourself.

So Many Questions About Education's Future

CLO Magazine

Though the rise of MOOCs has been polarizing in educational circles, access to free or lower-cost online classes is revolutionizing the cost-sensitive higher education arena and attracting hundreds of thousands of people searching for an accessible, flexible alternative. What will higher education look like in the future? What courses will students take? How will they pay for it? Over dinner recently, my son and daughter-in-law asked: When it’s time for kids born today to go to college, what will their experience be like? Who will go to college in 2030? What will they study?

Diigo User Communities

Experiencing eLearning

If you’re more interested in the people than the pages and tags, the People Search By Site is a better tool. Obviously the information’s a bit limited because only 12 people have bookmarked my site, but it’s still fun to look at what they saved and how they tagged it. periodically check how many people have bookmarked my site on del.icio.us , but that only picks up people who have saved the main page. I just realized that Diigo lets me see everyone who has bookmarked my site and what they saved. Free Subscription. Subscribe by Email

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Can Help Your Online Course

DigitalChalk eLearning

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) refers to designing your website so that it appears in the non-paid, “organic” section of search results when people search key phrases on sites like  Google, Yahoo, and Bing. SEO is the process of optimizing your site for phrases that people use when searching so that your website is displayed in the “organic” search results.

Search

Tony Karrer

This post likely will be quite a bit different because I'm convinced that most people have used different search tools enough that they are pretty comfortable with their current search behaviors. My intent here is to possibly expand the options for the average knowledge worker to be able to search a bit better than they do today. Search. as a quick date search.

Is Tech Adapting to Us for eLearning? (Part One)

eLearningMind

It’s a lesson that was learned by virtually every failed search engine before (and after) Google. By creating intelligent algorithms that made search results more personal, more geographically-sensitive, and ultimately more specific, Internet users spent less time search and more time discovering. It’s how Google now controls 69 percent of the global search engine market.

Spotlight On…You!

eLearning Weekly

This tells me that people are increasingly seeking employment (no real surprise, I suppose). There are a few big advantages for doing this: You’ll get exposure on a blog that is read by thousands of people each month. Your profile will be indexed by search engines, so your name may begin showing up when people search for certain keywords. Over the past few months, I’ve been excited to see traffic to my blog increase rapidly. Advantages. The right person may happen to see your information and give you a call. Submit Your Information.

You have a client list, so type in the company name on the People search and filter. 3) Tweet for feedback 4)Check out social review sites, but ignore Yelp – you aren’t going to find anything; 5)Google the client name and titles – “Director of Training&# , “Training Manager&# etc. ; 6) Ask colleagues or others in the industry.

The scarcity of attention rule

The Learning Circuits

But all to often I see people searching Google first, looking for answers and getting thousands of search results (informal learning) or having mind-numbing access to those thousands of online courses through enterprise libraries (formal learning), both of which are resulting in a quick-hit, good luck knowing how 'right' the answer is, learning experience. Frankly it scares me how many people take the Internet at face value. Jay Cross says that 80% of learning is informal and I wonder how much of that informal learning is being done by Internet searching.

Focus on What Matters Most

Marcia Conner

Marcia Conner : What do people need to learn in order to change their lives so that they can get to and do what really matters? There are many people who just picked up one of the books and got it—like you. There are other people who don’t necessarily get it as quickly, or who understand the overall picture but can’t quite figure out how to get their own lives there. Enjoy!

Improving Informal Learning

Big Dog, Little Dog

Two recent posts got my attention -- Tony Karrer's Reduce Searching Start Talking and Harold Jarche's Effective knowledge sharing. The second reason why informal learning is less efficient is that searches often end in failure. People searching for information will generally have roughly the same knowledge levels of others in their field. So which chart do we believe?
