    [Providers] University Learning = OCW + OER = FREE!
    OER Recommender Makes it easy for open education resource providers to provide links to related resources. The system basically provides access to NSDL resources, but also Johns Hopkins, MERLOT and MIT-OCW resources. There are some wonderful resources here providing you with relevant information needed to understand what OER is about, how to use/contribute/collaborate, and how to move forward (e.g. Khan Academy The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. Online College Classes.
    [Providers] Three Steps for Teaching Software
    When teaching software, first provide an overview of the task you are teaching. Then once they have done that (or maybe twice) then have them do it on their own and walk around the classroom providing assistance where needed. This provides a chance for the learn to watch, apply and practice. The other day, I got a great comment about my post Are You Challenging Your Learners? Don’t treat them like babies. The question: When do you think people in your class reach their threshold level? How would you approach a class who has difficulty reading a university level text?
    [Providers] Can Simulations replace traditional assessments?
    Much has been developed , researched and written  about the power of high fidelity simulations (especially in defense and healthcare) and their ability to provide far more effective training outcomes and better measurability of performance. And I will include Serious Games as well in the same context. think it is perhaps a good time to raise a few questions. Firstly, are simulations (and/or serious games) more suited for assessing performance than traditional paper/pencil or online tests? Secondly, what are the essential attributes of such simulation or game based assessments?
    [Providers] Sharing Our Authentic Work Lives with Our Children
    It is not the product that provides the learning, but the actual process we go through that teaches them. . This past spring, for the third year in a row, I ran a Leadership Academy for high school sophomores. As part of the Academy, we brought in leaders from all types of organizations--business, government, nonprofits, media--and let the kids do a sort of "speed-dating" meeting with them. Students got to ask questions and interact in small groups with each of the leaders. To these students, this was eye-opening. We are able to better understand our actions, what worked and what didn't.
    [Providers] Seeking testers for a new learning game engine – Knowledge Guru™ A prize to the winner!
    Knowledge Guru enables you to create a quiz-style, competitive game that provides an engaging way for employees to acquire “declarative knowledge&# (e.g. Knowledge Guru is a game engine we at Bottom-Line Performance have been developing for the past year. We’re chomping at the bit to release the game engine to people so they can create their own learning games…but we also want to gather as much test feedback as we can before finalizing the first release. learn the facts and apply those facts to specific scenarios).  You do this by answering questions within each topic.
    [Providers] Getting Close to the Ground
    College for the boardroom, classroom, higher academic pursuits like law and medicine; technicians who draw blood, troubleshoot computers and provide public service from police to municipal workers of all types, and tradespeople who through a ‘connection’ can apprentice through a union sponsored program or intern with a generous business owner. Notwithstanding the imperatives of cultural expectations, by the time a kids are in high school their trajectory has much been dialed in: College, training of some sort, the military, or work. They have never owned a computer.
    [Providers] Learning Histories
    The only continuity is possibly provided by the teacher, who takes to her class the knowledge of any prior learning histories. What happens to learning histories? Traditionally, in the school or college system, we treat textbooks and references built by experts as the starting point of our education. Students are encouraged to discover through the texts and teacher led activities. However, from one group of students to the other, from one year to the other, it is an ab-initio start. The traditional system has a short memory. These choices are made for the learner. Chaos elearning 2.0
    [Providers] Being a Development Manager at TechSmith
    also, need to be able to provide context. This weeks DevCorner post comes from David Dooley, one of our development managers. I was excited when Randall and A.J. asked me to write something about being a Development Manager for TechSmith. Since everyone is shaped by their experiences, here's a little of my history. I was about a year and a half out of college and fed up with my job. I was a consultant for a small IT company and I was continuously put in situations where I was over my head. rarely received any help, coaching, or assistance from my boss. It didn't go well. It's not you.

    [Providers] Training and Social Media Taught Me to Tie a Tie
    The social media component provides the medium for discussions about the learning, the discussion that is as equally as valuable as the learning event itself. They may add to it, or provide additional resources. So this made me think of organizations. Of the companies I’ve worked for or currently consult with, very few have a robust Knowledge Management System (KMS) where those with the knowledge can easily share that knowledge with others. In fact, most of the knowledge sharing that takes place in one of two ways: 1. training department produces training. 2. other employees).
    [Providers] Review of Snap! 1.1 Update
    The rest of the new features provide some differentiation. You do have to have someone put together some script to help “translate” what data from the course go into what fields in the database, but they provide guidance one that. About three months ago, Trivantis released Snap! by Lectora – a PowerPoint authoring tool à la Articulate. Today they announced their 1.1 update. Keeping Up” features : Add FLV video, branch using the player’s Next/Back buttons, hide slides in the navigation panel, disable navigation on individual slides, and customize/translate text labels.
    [Providers] What you want, what you need…
    It’s about client and provider communicating; it’s about striking that balance. It’s about working together to find a balance that works in terms of product – between content and enjoyment, a balance between cost, time and quality and most importantly, a successful relationship between client and provider. Instructional design day one! So today is my first day at Saffron as an Instructional Designer. Here I have the opportunity to continue doing the things I love, whilst gaining experience both in business, and e-learning. Finding a balance. In other cases, it simply isn’t.
    [Providers] Day 5: Sanity check!
    Where possible provide a 1-4 scale (this way they can’t always simply select the middle number) as well as space for free text. It’s Friday morning and you’ll be glad to know that the intensive hands-on stuff is over. But today is crucially important! We’ll be taking a step back and reviewing the improvements we’ve made, making sure we’ve got a coherent course and not a Frankenstein’s monster. Carry out the triple check: TVF. First things first: you need to do a full and thorough QA of your course. Some people hate doing this, other people (like me!) Get a second opinion from an SME.
    [Providers] Lack of evaluation
    This is part of my thesis about L&D evaluation: I believe there is too little of it being undertaken at the moment; I believe there is too little understanding of evaluation and its importance; I don’t know of any consultancies or service providers specialising in it; and I know there has been no new book of any significance published on the subject in nearly a decade. I’d be interested to hear any contradiction of this thesis (or any more supporting evidence). I’m underwhelmed by the response to my last blog post. As always, comments would be very welcome
    [Providers] Check Your Brain at the Door
    This is critical in today’s intellectual (provide service) age because employees are no longer hidden behind machines; they are now face-to-face with customers. Organizations live or die by the quality of the thinking and responses their employees provide – your people are your profits – or not. Author Seth Godin, in his book Linchpin, reminds us that “job” and “work” (where work is your “art” – your contribution) are very different things. The job requires showing up and doing recurring, routine tasks – not a lot of independent thinking is required. He is the author of “Fire Up!
    [Providers] Services for Learning
    What if frameworks such as the LearnOS and JISC could provide the underlying integration design for such services? As part of SCORM, ADL teams have worked on basically how to structure and sequence content to the learner and package it for the learning management system or repositories. However what they have not woked on is a standardized set of learning and collaboration services for SCORM compliant content to come alive. In the Web 2.0 Wouldn’t that transform learning altogether? And that too within a WBT! were to follow a SCORM or other Services Specification ? scorm
    [Providers] Collaborative and Cooperative Learning
    Social constructivism argues that the most optimal learning environment is one where a dynamic interaction between instructors, learners and tasks provides an opportunity for learners to create their own truth due to the interaction with others and the world. I came across some very interesting articles around collaboration and cooperation in learning. Formally defined, cooperative learning is defined by a set of processes which help people interact together in order to accomplish a specific goal or develop an end product which is usually content specific while (Panitz, 1996).
    [Providers] Common Cartridge – whither SCORM
    In order to deliver course content for LMS platforms, content providers find they must build, test and distribute their content for each platform. Delivering content for specific platforms also limits the development and distribution of content by smaller content providers and acts to exclude less widely used LMS platforms. Most of these systems each use their own proprietary formats for course content and pose an expensive problem for content providers wishing to distribute content across platforms. And hello! What is this IMS GLC Common Cartridge specification? link].
    [Providers] Yet another life!
    Apart from working with people and providing visually immersive navigation, what woud perhaps add real value is if it could be used to do physical stuff – e.g. walk into a customer “virtual&# office environment, and fix a hardware issue visually (provided the actual objects can be manipulated back in real or simulated time somehow). Well, if one life was not enough! have reading about Secondlife for some time now and decided to get an account. Am called Viplav Tigerpaw now! Once the novelty wears off, how effective is it as compared to the tools we have now.
    [Providers] Pervasive Learning
    It is not enough to just say that learning should be collaborative or pervasive without providing a framework to judge exactly how effective collaboration or ubiquity should be, and, without providing tools to learners and guides to effectively and efficiently source knowledge and learn. I found some great stuff on Pervasive Learning at the KnowledgeLab site. would think there are strong parallels with Personal Learning and collaborative learning in that we talk about the sources of knowledge and the processes by which learning takes place. By that I mean that context is key.
    [Providers] Fusing the learning experience
    Not only does this bring other resources into the WBT in a structured format, but also provides a way for the learner herself to contribute and collaborate during the course, providing much higher levels of engagement and collaboration. One view is the VLS/MLE/LMS view, where content is provided in a prescribed format. As more customers have started looking at Web 2.0 and learning 2.0 as a way to encourage greater learner engagement and learning effectiveness, I believe the way web based training (WBT) courses are created right now should change.
    [Providers] Collaborative Learning Styles
    research the best practices in collaborative learning techniques and provide templates for each technique. design tools that provide a structured collaboration experience that can be shared with others. As we move from traditional learning to what it means to collaborate and share, we need to focus on what would make this an effective way to learn, and how can technology help make this possible in a structured form. We need to be able to: identify the pre-conditions for collaboration to occur effectively . identify and list collaborative styles that different learners exemplify.
    [Providers] Folksonomies – much ado about something
    Vertical search (as propounded by Sramana Mitra ) provide another solution while the new proposed authoring tool from Google (“ knol “) provides yet another route to such classifications, this time for content at an “internal to page&# or sectioned level. Classifying the web and getting people what they are looking for. Now that is a daunting task when you know that there are over 10 billion web pages, that most of them are unstructured and a whole lot of them contain information that is hidden behind security, script and non-textual media. Innovations
    [Providers] The strategic inflection point
    However, they rely on standards such as SCORM, to provide intelligence on the learning process itself. Only the paranoid survive. Andrew Grove’s 2003 book by the same name reflects on the strategic inflection point when something in the environment changes in a fundamental way that is not so apparent in our daily chaos of survival. Andrew writes of how a 10X change in any one force (following Porter’s classical competitive strategy analysis and recent developments around this analysis), namely: Power, vigor and competence of existing competitors. Predictability  . Content quality.
    [Providers] Predictions for 2008
    The shift to rich Internet applications in e-learning using Flex and Silverlight among other tools, shall become a reality thus providing a boost to gaming and simulations for learning. Well, it is that time of the year when everyone would perhaps be reasonably interested in forecasting what the next year will bring. Here are my 2 cents: PLEs will be shareable – tools shall arrive on the web that shall allow entire learning experiences to be sliced and shared between users. This shall be followed by ratings on which PLE slices are great. Hopefully, all these will come true.
    [Providers] Social Learning Networks
    This is a really innovative solution that provides teachers the capability to teach online and host discussions among other things.  The traditional features of network build-up and collaboration are provided. The community rating provided is extremely powerful and structured. I stumbled across LearnHub , a social learning network that combines social networking, community ratings, learning and structured teaching. Teachers can create lessons, tests, courses and tutoring sessions. Any one can start or join multiple communities around their interest areas. elearning 2.0
    [Providers] Learning 2.0 formal methodologies?
    formats equally well, provided that: goals are set and agreed upon (as well how these will be achieved). We know that traditional training provides a one-go learning experience. The “simpler&# dimension is that teachers can be provided tools to generate collaborative learning activities (could be the capability to author learning games?). Jane Hart , in response to my comment on Manish’s blog post, was wondering what I meant by structured construction and tracking models for teaching-learning in a Learning 2.0 world. Thanks Jane, for forcing me to think harder!
    [Providers] Sugar – an operating system for learners
    Sugar is built on top of Fedora Linux and provides a new opportunity for all of us learning professionals to relook at how we can use technology and interface design to think out of the box, align whatever we have been talking about in social constructivist learning, Web 2.0 Now this is really very exciting. Let me start with explaining how I got here. The first thing is there are groups such as the One Laptop per child (OLPC) and those within Intel, HP and many companies that are trying to create laptops for the classroom in the K12 segment. The second thing is brilliant. Enter Sugar.
    [Providers] Part 5: Learning 2.0 Formal Methodologies
    If a rating needs to be provided for a particular piece of content or even interaction, then the community can engage in peer reviews. Discussion Thread: This post << Part 4 << Part 3 << Part 2 << Part 1. Also a contribution to the May Working/Learning blog carnival hosted by Rupa Rajagopalan ). In the last few posts, I have tried to identify what I think are the pillars of the learning process/experience and tried to establish that they remain valid in both traditional and 2.0 contexts. style. That is implicit in the style. Rather Network organization.
    [Providers] Groups and Networks: 2.0 Formal methodologies
    If we look at Bruce Tuckman’s five stage model, it has: Forming – similar to the polite stage in terms of making acquantances and assessing the other members and their abilities, but includes context setting and motivation with a lot of direction being provided by the team leadership. In the last post, I looked at some of the basic components that any formal methodology for Learning 2.0 shall need to address. These are Network organization, Group organization, Content, Measurement and Tracking and Collaboration. Groups require unity, networks require diversity. construct.
    [Providers] 2.0 Learning Formations
    These groups leverage the power of networks to achieve their growth and the context of a focused community to provide learning for their members. In my last post, I talked about networks and groups and discussed how groups make for more meaning for Learning 2.0 than simply the concept of networks. As we look at the way Learning 2.0 styles possibly function in a network, it would be helpful to think of ad hoc formations that are forming and adjourning continuously; sometimes morphing into other ad hoc formations of different shapes and sizes. Nothing is evanescent and yet everything is.
    [Providers] The new age of innovation
    The service model is simple – provide guarantees, support and services on the usage of the tires (say in a fleet management scenario) rather than transactionally on just the tire. TutorVista provides its customers with the ability to choose what they want to learn, when they want to learn and for what duration they need tutoring. The book by the same name written by C.K. Prahalad and M.S. Krishnan has much to offer us in the learning industry. Rather, a new order is emerging that conforms to global standards yet is locally responsive.

    [Providers] X.Os in Learning and Technology
    As bandwidth improved, video conferencing evolved to provide immersive situations for collaboration and communication. Blogs provide, for example, a channel through which anyone could share content with the global community. Correspondingly, it provides tools to search and source knowledge from millions of different sources. Web services now provide the glue through which these can happen. Examples include some ongoing research on wearable headsets that provide the power of your PC, social network and the internet wherever you go. The “X” in “X.O” The X in X.O

    Our clientwas managing the SMEs and they were to provide the content. I was recently asked to share some customer moments. One ofmy defining customer moments was during a project we were doing more than 10years ago. This was a very large elearning project to convert huge amount ofcontent to elearning in a short period of time. The times were short of thevolume of work and everyone was under severe pressure. This included our clientcontact, who was also under pressure from her stakeholders and customers. As happensin elearning projects, we were expecting to get content from SMEs.

    They also can provide invaluable guidance and advice in a number of other areas. The group typically would meet several hours per quarter to review progress against goals, review initiatives, prioritize work and resolve conflicts, and provide input and approval for the business plan for learning. This group might help determine the deployment schedule, provide feedback on existing programs, and provide input to the prioritization and planning process. This group would help deploy programs from corporate and provide feedback and ideas to corporate L&D.
    [Providers] The Debt Ceiling Deal: What Budget Negotiation Shouldn’t Look Like
    Obviously no CLO will ever find himself involved in a negotiation that plays out on such an international scale, but a look at the negotiations of this deal provide a snapshot of budget negotiation occurring with the highest stakes possible, and there may be something we can learn from that. The finally resolved U.S. debt ceiling deal gave us all a look at what, at least in part, was a budget negotiation of grand proportions. As you likely know, two sides existed here: the White House and Congress, with Congress divided into Republicans and Democrats.

    Situation: A consulting company was tasked by a healthcare company to provide 11 hours of eLearning using Captivate on several new products.  In Minnesota we say that we have two seasons—winter and road construction.  Added to that is the extreme congestion during morning and evening rush hours and the building of a light rail system between Minneapolis and St. All of this, of course, adds inordinate amounts of time to my drive between the two cities and to and from the suburbs. thought about the importance of having a Plan B in your hip pocket for just such eventualities.
