I'm grateful to Technorati for finally fixing my blog statistics. My blog reactions (for the uninitiated, those other blogs that think my site is so cool that they cannot resist linking to it from theirs) and my ranking (the Technorati scale you rise up through as more blogs link to yours. In the end I resorted to a bit of pestering in the right area - directly onto the Technorati help forum itself. Hooray! I now have a Technorati authority rating of 11 - that will impress all the traffic cops around my neighbourhood. Sorry to bother you sir." Right. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.

Instructional Design Training Programs

Unfortunately, I have no idea about training for instructional designers outside the US. On Tony Karrer’s blog, there’s a nice collection online degrees, certificates, and training programs in the comments. These are all in the US, Canada, or UK. Could anyone from India or elsewhere outside the US shed some light on training available in your areas?

Learning About eLearning: Browse My Stuff

It's kind of like Technorati, but community focused around the singular topic of eLearning. Tony Karrer has just rebranded and launched eLearning Learning. I've added a widget to my blog's sidebar that lets you browse my stuff (it does the tagging for me, so I don't have to). If you click on a topic you'll go to the hub, where you can access posts by others on the same topic.

The reasons why have been the subject of countless blog posts, but I think DreamWorks founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, in this video from TechCrunch , says it best: “[The iPad] it’s the first device that actually is a reflection of me – or us. It is the reverse. That is, recognizing that mobile content delivery should be fully controlled by the learner.

Pattern Recognition, Neoterics and moving on.

So what if Technorati isn't exactly what it used to be? Like a lot of people, I read Anil Dash's " The Web We Lost " and I read Hugh MacLeod's corollary piece. I'm split on how I feel here. The essence of both pieces, if I may be so bold as to try and boil down thoughts by folks like Dash and MacLeod, both of whom I respect greatly, is that the Web used to be cool and open and edgy and egalitarian and now, now its not. Or not as much. But its still cool and it can still be cooler. Or cool again. And edgy. And egalitarian. Again. . Everyone I know now is online somehow. like that.

Ton up, going strong

Clive on Learning

Business Week quotes a Technorati report which shows 15.5 million active blogs (defined as blogs updated in last 90 days), which represents around 20% of all those that are tracked. It seems many start up with high hopes, but few have the stamina to keep going. Yes, blogging's a marathon, with no foreseeable finishing line. Anyway, I'm going strong. I've just noticed I've passed the 100 mark (this is 105) and, you know what, I'm really enjoying it. think I'll do another 100

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

actually left Technorati for Google because Google appeared to be doing a better job. I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll. This completely defeats my purpose. Time to evaluate my options?

Is Blogging Dying?

But here are some interesting statistics that provide another view: Annual State of the Blogosphere 2009 report provided by Technorati states that: More than 133,000,000 blogs have been indexed by Technorati since 2002 86% of the respondents have been blogging for at least a year - 68% have been blogging for two years or more 57% say that their future plans include blogging even more (including 74% of 18-24 year olds) The most common rate of updating a blog is 2-3 times per week 900,000 is the average number of blog posts in a 24 hour period There are many more interesting statistics.

State of the Twittersphere?

George Siemens

Technorati publishes an almost annual state of the blogosphere (btw - I hardly ever use technorati - Google Alerts seems to suffice). While technology moves forward, buzzwords apparently do not. In the spirit of true creativity (?) we know have the state of the twittersphere. Growth has been tremendous for Twitter. haven’t heard much about abandoned accounts - a key complaint about blogs. Twitter is just easier. It’s highly social, it accommodates a range of strong and weak ties, and it doesn’t require much effort to contribute.

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

Tony Karrer

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and to determine what posts are generating the most interest. It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it. I've not quite figured out how to take a very large list of blogs, e.g., all edublogs, and have it filter those down.

My live blogged notes were beautiful and then poof -- my machine crashed and my notes are gone. The sorrow. Please oh please can I throw this laptop out the window now?)

eLearning Learning was launched about a week ago. There has been quite a response and some great feedback. It made it to the delicious popular pages for eLearning and e-Learning. If you look at the other entries such as Jane Hart's recent top tools and Stephen Downes on The Future of Learning, that's quite good company. Several of my favorite bloggers have been added into the mix. I'm also listing what they show as their top tools in the widget for some of them - which I find interesting. It gives me a sense of the tools they talk about. I'm definitely interested in suggestions.

Selling E-Learning as a Freelancer

Experiencing eLearning

Technorati Tags: e-learning , freelance , e-Learning+Guild , Creative+Commons I received another question from a reader today that I’m hoping someone out in the blogosphere can help answer. Usually I think of freelance e-learning developers developing content for a specific client with a specific audience in mind. However, this reader is looking for something else: Which sites, if any, accept e-learning courses from freelance courseware developers? Someone else recommended , which is looking for course authors but probably isn’t quite what he’s looking for.

Social Media in Plain English

Experiencing eLearning

Technorati Tags: Common+Craft , social+media , web20 , changemanagement The folks at Common Craft have another great video, this time about social media. What I especially like about this one is that it doesn’t talk about technology until near the end. The video focuses on the metaphor of ice cream: it can be mass-produced in a factory that focuses only on flavors with mass appeal, or individuals can create their own flavors at home. This really is about the change in the business & media environment at a high level rather than the specifics of how to use any one technology.

Long Tail Blogging is Dying?

Tony Karrer

He points to backup evidence of this from a NYT article and based on Technorati's 2008 survey of the state of the blogosphere , which found that only 7.4m out of the 133m blogs it tracks had been updated in the past 120 days. This somewhat supports the Technorati numbers. Just read an article in the Guardian The long tail of blogging is dying (Found via Donald Clark ). But recently – over the past six months – a new trend: fewer blogs with links, and fewer with any contextual comment. Some weeks, apart from the splogs, there would be hardly anything. People change their focus.

Question: Tracking CBTs

Experiencing eLearning

Technorati Tags: CBT , LMS , tracking A reader asked a question that I’m not really sure how to answer. Things like Moodle are overkill, as we don’t need grading, blogging, wikis, etc., While this is better than nothing, it is a far cry from the “real&# tracking of CBT course players. What would you suggest for administering and tracking CBTs for this reader? Is there an open source solution that isn’t a full LMS but does what’s needed here? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Technorati Tags: connectivisim , CCK08With little time these days, I'll be auditing the auditor's version of the 12 week Connectivism course happening now. haven't signed up anywhere, I haven't taken part in any of the sessions, but I'm like a moth drawn to the flame: as I peer in on all the conversation beginning to happen, I can't help but join in. In my own lazy way, at the very least. Am I creating a new pattern? Am I growing new knowledge? (As opposed to building it?)
