Put That In Your Pipe Graphic and Present It!
JANUARY 29, 2016
Pipes! Pipes are an elegantly simple solution for transporting water and other fluids for just about any purpose, from irrigation and waste removal, to heating and cooling. It’s got all the pieces, joints, and junctions you need to create a realistic pipe system that doubles as a flow chart infographic. The post Put That In Your Pipe Graphic and Present It!
Learning Professionals – Do you need to tweak your pipes?
SEPTEMBER 21, 2011
The amount of pipe tweaking that Doug did in this time was something to behold but he put it like this: “it might take a bit of time but getting the pipework right is the key to success”. So what has this lesson got to do with the Learning and Performance Institute or even Learning and Development and why on earth do you need to think about tweaking pipes? Or as Doug would put it: “Do you need to tweak your pipes”? Learning Cuppa from the UK. In my last post I talked about the Institute of IT Training (IITT) becoming the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI).
Why is problem solving at home so much easier (and more productive) than problem solving at work?
JUNE 10, 2016
Video transcript: If one of the pipes under your kitchen sink starts to leak, what would you do? If you’re like me, you’d probably Google “fix broken pipe” and then use the resulting articles and YouTube videos to help you try to take care of it yourself. Why can’t you just Google it like you would to fix a broken pipe? Information is quickly found, digested and applied.

Curated Insights: Why knowledge sharing at work is a good thing
MAY 13, 2016
I often use a similar example about broken kitchen pipes when I discuss the value of shared knowledge. Knowledge sharing has always been an important part of the workplace. Historically, organizations have relied heavily on tenured employees and legally required documentation to help people do their jobs. Shameless self promotion! The six key skills of learning curation from Carole Bower.
Fighting the River–Saving the Middle School
SEPTEMBER 8, 2011
As the water started to come into our side of the bridge through drainage pipes (draining the wrong way because of water pressure). Well, I spent most of the morning this morning fighting the Susquehanna River —actually fighting a creek that feeds the river, the creek was rising quickly and threatened to flood the local middle school. The green area indicates rain. Out and About
Going Beyond MCQs – Gamifying Assessments to Evaluate Online Learners
NOVEMBER 1, 2016
Water Pipe. The pipe fills with water if the learner selects the right answer. If the learner gets the answer wrong, the pipe remains empty. Are you planning to evaluate your learners online? Do you wish to create interesting e-learning assessments? Well, go in for gamification. What is gamification? What are the benefits of gamifying e-learning assessments? Find Your Way .
Trending in Workplace Learning 2015….
JANUARY 13, 2015
Robert Mager and Peter Pipe, in the last century, and Marc Rosenberg and Steve Foreman, in this one, urge us to look at each request (better performance appraisals, safer equipment operation, introduction of a new software package) in order to c ustomize systems based on data. Many colleagues have asked what I think will emerge in workplace learning in 2015, “What’s important for 2015, in your view?” ” Or they put it this way, “Have you read anything worthwhile that summarizes trends for 2015?” It’s an opportunity. Not yet. But soon. Customized.
TechSmith Camtasia Studio 8: What Happened to PIP?
I Came, I Saw, I Learned
MARCH 20, 2013
you're PIPing! by Kevin Siegel. I received an email from a Camtasia developer inquiring about the apparent demise of Camtasia's Picture-in-Picture (PIP) feature. Using the PIP feature, developers could add a corporate logo to a video as a watermark. They could also include videos on top of the video (i.e.: a video of someone using sign language that augmented a video demonstration).
JANUARY 27, 2016
So, you might think of electrical circuits like water flowing in pipes, or think about electron flow, and either could be useful. (I looked because I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but apparently not a full post, so here we go.). If we want our learning to stick, it needs to be spaced out over time. But what sorts of things will accomplish this? I like to think of three types, all different forms of reactivating learning. Reactivating learning is important. That’s why context helps as well as concept (e.g. don’t just provide abstract knowledge).
The dawn of a new generation
JULY 22, 2014
Or is it just a pipe dream? User-generated content (UGC) is not a novel concept, but most of us in the corporate sector have barely scratched its surface. And yet… the world is changing. Notwithstanding either the validity or the importance of our concerns with UGC, the traditional training model is becoming increasingly unsustainable in the modern workplace. What should Ron do?
Compliance Training: Cheers or Jeers?
MARCH 9, 2017
This isn’t a pipe dream. If you said the words compliance training to your employees, what would their reaction be? Would they jump for joy, smile, roll their eyes, or run for the hills? This issue has been the 800-pound gorilla in our industry for years now. Now, these are only three reactions; not all compliance training is bad. But we can do a lot better.
Effective Instructional Graphics in eLearning
MAY 22, 2015
Another graphic is a pipe graphic. We’ve all heard the phrase, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” ” However, just because you have some open space on a page, that doesn’t mean you can get lazy and plop some meaningless image down. We always recommend finding a way to create an image that engages learners and effectively communicates a message.
This is not (fill in the blank)
JUNE 11, 2012
When you view the painting “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” – “this is not a pipe”, you would think to yourself – “how could this be”? After all, you are looking at a pipe, therefore a contradiction has taken place. If you are seeing a pipe, it therefore must be a pipe? But it isn’t. HTML5 or is it? Bottom Line.
Gamification in E-Learning – Are you really learning?
APRIL 25, 2013
Take a look at the following: It says, “This is not a pipe” You say, “wait it is a pipe” But it isn’t (if you know what it is, place it in the comments section). I’m an addict. An addict for games. Not just any type of game mind you, rather one that I can win at. By the Numbers. Billion dollars by 2016 (M2 Research). Not at all.
Using Analogies and Metaphors to Enhance Learning
APRIL 29, 2014
And electricity is often compared to water flowing through pipes. My mom was a junior high and high school home-economics teacher when I was a kid. She made sure that my sister and I knew our way around the kitchen and a sewing machine, whether we wanted to or not. Cooking is an art, and baking is a science,” she told me. A light bulb went off in my head. The target is the thing that’s new.
Is your company ready for the iGeneration?
JANUARY 26, 2017
A pipe does not break only during weekends. I don’t know about you, but I find shopping malls to be tremendously tiring: so many choices, so many people, so much noise. But at the same time, shopping malls can be truly surprising, and even inspiring. The last time I’ve found myself in a shopping mall, a crying kid got my attention. A preschooler. Why, you may wonder? But first…. Mobility.
Creating avenues for On-Demand Learning in the Modern Workplace
MARCH 10, 2014
Tools like Google Alerts or Yahoo Pipes are automatic content filters that can be very useful to direct relevant content for review through customizable criteria. Learning at the workplace is a continuous process. While formal training also has a place, more and more organizations are aligning towards informal ways of organizational learning. Content collated from the Internet.

The Promise Of 3D Learning
AUGUST 10, 2011
A few years ago, we didn’t have the pipes to deliver that sort of data fast enough to offer a decent user experience. Every now and again I wonder about the multi-user 3D environments, or virtual worlds that were all the rage just a couple of years ago, the finest example being Second Life. Second Life itself was a promising collaborative 3D learning platform. That day is far off yet.
6 Ways to Add Sizzle to Your Classroom
JANUARY 30, 2015
Classrooms today are less about pipe-cleaners and candy (although I love both) and more about how to build an ongoing community of curious learners, keeping the brain engaged and helping people access knowledge when it’s important to do so. What was really exciting about the conversation was the lack of defensiveness. Remember, this is the year of Kaizen. Kaizen! . Sure you have.
What We Can Learn From The Blue Man Group
OCTOBER 15, 2008
They play PVC piping, drums which emit a colored liquid and provide a variety of information through a large screen with words and images along with rhythmic drum beating and audience participation. As the Blue Man Group's web site describes; Blue Man Group is a creative organization dedicated to creating exciting and innovative work in a wide variety of media. It was a "blended" show.
The Corporate Training Predictions You Need to Know for 2017
DECEMBER 16, 2016
This one is just a pipe dream of mine. Ah yes. The annual December tradition of crystal-balling the coming year is alive and well. And who am I to be the Grinch and sit this one out. I'm all in on 2017! 2017 is going to be fantastic for training, learning and development. And no, I don't believe that I just jinxed it. But that's just the beginning. But I don't want to jump that far out.

LMS and Gamification
APRIL 14, 2015
The good news is, with just a little tweaking, you can have things hot and piping in your learning management system. Do you have a learning management system in place but cannot figure out how to use gamification? Let’s rephrase: do you have a learning management system that is hardly churning out the desired number of learners per quarter? Let’s face it. Thanks to B. Good luck!

By adjusting the headphone pipes, he fooled Don into thinking he was hearing noises from one direction, when in fact the reverse was true. It''s not every day you see the witty and urbane Donald H Taylor, chair of the Learning and Skills Group, looking like a member of Daft Punk. But that''s exactly where the Day 2 keynote session of Learning Technologies ended up. on Don. Unported License.
Why companies should consider the gamification of work
FEBRUARY 2, 2017
Companies that operate in high-risk environments might better not allow a receptionist to test leaking gas pipes. One item on every HR agenda is employee retention. Many companies have to deal with high employee turnover rates — and the costs that come along. Replacing an employee is usually more expensive than offering a few incentives to make them stay. Why employees job-hop. Game over!
Are Instructional Designers Making Themselves Irrelevant?

Holmes is doing his Holmes thing, but it's the scenery that does the heavy lifting—the iconic pipe, the timepiece dangling from his vest, the books and paper stuffed in the cabinet behind him, the London smog coating the world outside. I did not appreciate Sherlock Holmes until the Benedict Cumberbatch version appeared. It was not only his performance that won me over. Okay, okay.
Compliance, LMS and Content – Boring You Bet, Then again.
APRIL 7, 2015
but again, I’ll refrain – because I see quite a bit coming down the pipe. I’m going on a limb here, but I suspect that either at some point this year or latter of last year, many of you had to complete some compliance training. And I surmise, that after you completed it and signed off or validated with an assessment or read some documents and digitally verified, you never went back again. But before I dive into why it is usually horrible, the first place to focus on is the Learning Management System. Facts are more relevant than. LMS: The beginning. no problem.
The practical use of simulations in training
SEPTEMBER 8, 2016
Specialized technicians need to check natural gas pipes for leakages, and any error they make could lead to a serious explosion. Gamification , virtual reality, augmented learning — these are e-learning hot topics that generated a lot of discussions lately. That’s every instructional designer supreme goal. In fact, simulations are decades old learning tools. Flight simulations.
Online Courses with Empty Promises
FEBRUARY 1, 2017
They want to sell you on a pipe-dream to get your money. In recent years we have seen a meteoric rise in the number of online courses being delivered. It makes sense when you think about it. Everyone knows something about something. It’s just a matter of getting the content organized in a way that others will find valuable and the marketing it accordingly. online learning
