Wow, wasn’t that marching band fantastic? loved the lip synch of that tune. Okay, time for the 2nd half to begin, so let’s go right to the kickoff. As before, please excuse text line space funkiness – WordPress app on iPad. TOUCHDOWN. The product comes in two flavors – a simple and a more robust. focused on the more robust. Talk about a nice run to the end zone! This version ($40/u/m) is geared towards the instructional designer/developer. What I liked about it: Easy to define objects and enable them to have a lot of capabilities. FIRST DOWN. Adobe Presenter.

Do you see a paradigm shift in learning?

Origin Learning

The ink on the learning canvas has changed. Traditional methods including the instructional approach, a force-fed and compulsory method of imparting training has undergone a metamorphosis. paradigm shift is happening in the sphere of learning. This is an age where learning by choice is in. Acquisition of knowledge is one thing, but putting it into effective use is another. The struggle is on.

E-learning Uncovered

Next week, Diane and I (and over a thousand other learning and development professionals) converge in Las Vegas for one of ASTD’s largest annual conferences: TechKnowledge. TK Chats debuted at TechKnowledge last year and were a great success; they are fairly short, informal, moderated panels on some of the hot topics in our industry right now. The one TK Chat I attended at last year’s TechKnowledge led toward better networking and gave me more of an opportunity, as a learner, to ask the questions that were on my mind. Registration is already open here.

TechKnowledge is less than a month away, and I can’t wait!

Learning Visions

ASTD TechKnowledge is ASTD’s homage to eLearning. It’s bitter cold here on the East Coast of North America today. Which means, I’m REALLY looking forward to heading westward next week for TK11. What is it? This year the theme is Define, Design, Deliver. What am I up to? I’m really honored to be a program committee member for TK11 this year, along with some amazing people. Ellen Wagner heads up this year’s committee, so that should tell you something. Among other things, this means I’ll get a front row seat at all of the keynote sessions !

Reflections on the final day of TechKnowledge 11

Clark Quinn

Because of prior commitments, I only got to attend the last day of the TechKnowledge conference, to participate in two panels, one on mobile and one on instructional design, and then listen to the closing session.  like the TechKnowledge conference, as I think they work hard to get mostly the right folks (tho’ I confess to being surprised to see a ‘learning styles’ workshop put on pre-conference), and many of our top colleagues have taken a shot at serving on the program committee.  I think it’s in Las Vegas next year, and a good conference to attend regardless.

Gearing Up for a Laptop-Free TechKnowledge 2012

So I’ve decided to go to TechKnowledge almost laptop-free. (As it turns out, since I’m presenting a Creation Station and probably doing client work during the week, I’m going to have to bring my laptop, but I’m definitely going to minimize taking it to the event itself.) Here’s how I’m preparing. The official TK12 conference app. Business card scanner/importer. No tetaking apps.

Okay, the first day of ASTD TK13 has wrapped up – at least from the expo side of the house. Excuse any strange text breaks – writing from the WordPress iOS app. Let’s jump right in for the game action. TOUCHDOWN. I was really impressed with a few new products. Animate. unique product that uses the power of animated figures. Can output to MP4 or Flash, I loved the MP4. It can be embed into your web site, added to your LMS, but to me the real awesomeness is the ability to add into any authoring tool. Thousands of characters to choose from, including backgrounds. Pricing is low.
