The desire to learn more about rapid e-learning is obvious, we had the largest ASTD Webinar attendance to date, over 650 individuals. Allison Rossett did a wonderful job of talking about the Big Tent of e-learning and how we need to expand our thinking beyond courses to performance support systems. She also made an excellent point that some things cannot be taught rapidly.

    provided a provocative glimpse into the future but.it was nothing compared to the concept of a helmet that reads your thoughts and then controls images on the screen to help you play video games without a controller. Interfaces, or the lack of interfaces seems to be a theme lately. thought the posting, What Interface? No joystick or controller, just put the helmut on your head and begin playing.with your mind. The technology will distinguish between patterns of brain activity in order to correspond with specific commands in video games. This takes user interfaces to a whole new level.

    The board game provides a nice storyline, multiple choice questions, interactivity and the "thrill" of being chased by the police. Did your mom always try to get you to drink your milk? She probably told you that drinking milk will help you grow up to be big and strong. If she was like my mom, she tried really hard but it was never any fun to drink my milk. always wanted chocolate or even Pink Quick to make my milk taste better. actually I only wanted the Pink Quick once.until I actually tasted it.not good.) Anyway, the " Got Milk?" It is a 3D online, interactive, board game.

    [Providers] CAC: Nathan Eckel
    The idea was to provide the SME with a basic understanding of ID. CAC kicked off with a presentation by Nathan Eckel (2006 alum) who presented on the process of "teaching ID" to a Subject Matter Expert (SME). The project was originally intended to create Tobacco Cessation videos and during that project Nathan worked with the SME to help him learn about the ID process. Nathan coached and mentored the client to give him enough knowledge to properly design and deliver solutions. The final product had a car dash board interface and a neat map showing a smoker the road to smoking cessation.

    Develop adaptive software that provides an individsualised learning experience that is well suited to the particular learner. To compensate for this, the trainer needs to work hard to establish a climate of open communication, in which students can freely articulate their needs and provide feedback. Rule 3: Every brain is wired differently In this chapter, John Medina explains how every brain is different from every other: "When you learn something, the wiring in your brain changes." Learning results in physical changes to the brain and these changes are unique to each individual."

Fair enough, but you need a large community for the 1% to provide enough volume for the others to comment on or view. Provide alternative ways for networking to occur. One of my lasting memories of this week's Learning Technologies 2008 was a blogger's reunion dinner at a Persian restaurant just off Kensington High Street.
