The two faces of blended learning

E-Learning Provocateur

If a classroom-based session is complemented with a blog for reflection and discussion, why not complement its vodcasted alternative with the blog too? What is blended learning? Well, it depends on who you ask. For example, someone might say it’s a mix of pedagogical approaches, while someone else might say it’s a mix of theory and practice. Two faces. The alternative face, and.

Rise of the smart cities

E-Learning Provocateur

Watch vodcasts. I read a news article today about the announcement by the Queensland Government to provide wireless internet access to commuters on its Citytrain network. Other articles claim this service will be free. Queensland is not the first government to offer free public wi-fi. Wikipedia lists dozens of cities around the world that have free municipal wireless networks. Read blogs.

Of posters and round tables

E-Learning Provocateur

Jan provided an overview of a series of workshops undertaken at UOW in which both teachers and students learned how to develop vodcasts for dissemination via PDAs and iPods. Today I attended the Learning Technology Research Symposium hosted by CoCo at my old stomping ground, Sydney University. The first part of the day comprised a “Research Poster Showcase&# , in which the symposium attendees browsed posters about the work being undertaken by researchers not only at Sydney University, but also at other universities in Australia and overseas.

Shout Out: Rachel Troychock

Kapp Notes

Here she is with fellow alumni Pete Mitchell talking about using vodcasting for e-learning on this very blog. Speaking of alumni (see yesterday's post ) This month ASTD's magazine T&D featured one of Bloomsburg University's Instructional Technology alumni, Rachel in their article FUTURE LEADERS 2020. The article is about up and comming folks and what they are doing in the field of learning and e-learning. Here is what the magazine said about Rachel: Rachel Troychock is technology based learning manager at KPMG. Currently, she is leading an initiative to incorporate the use of Web 2.0

Web feats 7: Videosharing

Learning with e's

Some are becoming more adventurous, either creating their own short videos to share, and vodcasting is on the rise. Tags: YouTube user generated content vodcasting Vimeo Blip TV Teachers are discovering that video sharing sites such as YouTube, Blip TV and Vimeo can offer a very rich platform for learning. User generated content of all kinds can be found there. It's happened before.

Vision on

Learning with e's

Good to see that all three main presentations (Jon Dron, Emma Place and myself) at the recent HEA e-Learning symposium are now available online as VODcasts, complete with accompanying PowerPoint slides and abstracts. Tags: e-learning Southampton University VODcast You can view them by clicking on this link. You may spot my little joke about Southampton Football Club, its managers, and the subsequent audience response. Sorry. I just couldn't resist it. Well done to all concerned, and thanks again Southampton University for a memorable and well organised event.

Is There an App for Leadership Development?

CLO Magazine

Mobile Possibilities Mobile devices allow learning to happen in the midst of life and work through ready access to the LMS, apps, modules, podcasts, vodcasts and social media. Mobile apps will soon offer robust tools for leadership and managerial development. The possibilities are endless and important, especially when paired with traditional course development and coaching. In January 2012, Deloitte and Forbes Insights published “Talent Edge 2020,” a study of matters weighing on executives’ minds. The respondents cited leadership as their most pressing talent concern.

Learning Goes Social

CLO Magazine

“They need something they can do on the go, so we’ll usually publish some sales training through our LMS, which is more of a “vodcast,” so they can watch a video — quick, short, to the point and they can get up to date on new things as they’re going to sales calls on those exact topics,” Williams said. New technology is empowering employees more than ever to control their own learning and development. “Many organizations see this as an opportunity to augment informal development. Learning materials must be easily accessible.

Guest Post: You can teach an old teacher new tricks

Visual Lounge

Guest post by teacher, Steve Kelly. It took a rude awakening for me to realize I had fallen behind as an educator. I remember the day like I was hit by a lightning bolt. I met 150 teachers at an NME conference that were so far ahead of me I didn’t know if I could catch up. I thought I was a good teacher, but I forgot it wasn’t 1997 anymore. I needed a new way of managing my class time.

Blogcast Bloomsburg University: Video in e-Learning

Kapp Notes

They are contemplating the development of the a monthly vodcast to send to all of the employees. Rachel Vazquez and Pete Mitchell (alum) presented on how they used video in e-learning and how they had to convert video to an e-learning format. They also discussed how they are delivering training via video iPods. Captured content via Centra, sent playback to vendor to transcribe and converted it into a minute script in aCNN-type presentation for delivery via an iPod.

Examples of eLearning 2.0

Clark Quinn

During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0 approaches. In the past, I've only had a few people respond, but this time, there were so many responses I couldn't really read them and present. One thing I really like about the list is how tactical they are. I always suggest people shouldn't try to come up with a big eLearning 2.0 strategy and worry about culture change, but should instead look for tactical implementations that just make sense.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

Self-service education

Janet Clarey

In corporate training we’re talking a lot about wikis, blogs, RSS, podcasts, vodcasts, bookmarking, etc. Are you getting tired of self-service? I actually will not be surprised when I’m given a job aid and scalpel when I show up at the doctors office. Imagine all these people in little rooms with their scalpels being overseen by one person like the self-service checkouts at the Home Depot. Isn’t this just more work for the learner? create your own content. assess your own skills. print/save your own certificate. print/save your own materials. Think about it.

Choosing Media - Push vs. Pull - Part 1 of Many

Tony Karrer

In other words, what combination of documents, web pages, emails, IM, SMS, video, audio, podcasts, vodcasts, Faxes, RSS feeds, telephone calls, direct mail, blogs, wikis, recorded presentations, etc., I'm slowly beginning to prepare for some future presentations and slowly writing a couple of articles that discuss the impact of relatively newer developments in eLearning such as: Rapid eLearning , the Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids , eLearning 2.0 , Podcasts, Wikis, Content Management, etc. Let me start with a big one.Choosing Media. should I use?

Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Janet Clarey

Google Reader is a Web feed aggregator that allows learners and instructors to collect updates content (blogs, news feeds, podcasts, vodcasts, multimedia, etc.). What do you do when you’re connected and need a quick answer to a question? You probably just “google it” and then click the Wikipedia entry for whatever you’re “googling.&#  I think this is certainly true of many Generation Y workers and those born after them. Many did not grow up using print encyclopedias and dictionaries like many older (some Gen X, boomer, mature) workers. In my case usually my Dad.

Myths about online learning

Janet Clarey

I'm thinking here about a vodcast with group communication around its content. Daniel Lemire wrote a recent post, some myths about online teaching, based on his experiences in higher ed. I’ve bulleted his points below, but you really need to read Daniel’s commentary. I think many of these myths can be applied to corporate e-learning. blue is mine]. Myth : Videocasting lectures/presentations works. [As As part of a blended experience OK, but not alone. Or, a video in a classroom with active discussion.]. Myth : Posting lecture/presentation notes is pretty much good enough.
