CommLab India

The way humans learn and develop has changed drastically; learners in 2016 are different to learners in 2005. In this post, I’ll go through three of the major e-learning trends that brought about major changes in the way we create online courses from 2005 to 2016.

2005 or 2006, the name Kathy Sierra is probably new to you. I started blogging in August 2005 and I did not have anyone "following" me at the time. So you can imagine how psyched I was when, after 4 months blogging, Kathy posted a comment on my post 2005 Review of eLearning.

I will remember Steve Jobs 2005 Commencement Address

Jane Hart

For me one of the most influential things he did was his commencement speech to Stanford University in 2005. Steve Jobs died yesterday, 5 October, and the blogosphere is full of tributes today to him. I’ve forwarded the link to many people over the years, and I know it has impacted many others too. In fact it’s been viewed on YouTube over 6 million times. But if you haven’t seen it… Read the rest. Social learning

The latest release of the Epic Newsletter sees Donald report on Elliott Masie's Learning 2005 in Orlando and it makes a great read.

Elliott Masie and the Emperor's New Slide Show

I was interested to read in Donald Clark's review of Learning 2005 that Elliott had decreed that there should be no PowerPoint at the show.

Notes and tracking

Well I have completed the update of course training notes for the new 1.5 version of Moodle and finally go round, cannot imagine why it took so long though, to creating a custom scale that we can use for our Edexcel course grading schemes.

The new IT training, part 3: Where next?

Clive on Learning

A plea to IT user trainers in five thrilling instalments Hello again. You will remember that, back in part 1, I explained that IT user training is evolving through a number of phases.

The trainer as storyteller

Clive on Learning

A couple of years ago I devoted a great deal of energy to the design of a new course. In blatant disregard of all the usual constraints of time and budget, I set out to design a programme that was both highly interactive and media rich, engaging as many of the senses as possible.

A plea to IT user trainers in five thrilling instalments Welcome back. In part 1, I explained that IT user training is evolving through a number of phases and that this evolution affects more than just learners - it affects the expectations that learners have of IT trainers.

You may never have thought of it this way, but most training is essentially a 'pull' experience.

The new IT training, part 1: How we got here

Clive on Learning

A plea to IT user trainers in five thrilling instalments Some forms of training never seem to change. If you teach sales, customer service or management skills, chances are that you would have covered much the same content in much the same way 25 years ago.

What goes round: video and learning

Clive on Learning

With the recent announcement by Apple of the launch of the video iPOD , once again video is in the spotlight as a tool for learning. Now seems as good a time as any to reflect on the curious relationship between video, computer technology and learning.

And the big question is?

Moodle Journal

Moodle is certainly being used by staff and students now, I took a quick look at the logs beginning from the first teaching week and we have some 14000+ records, not bad considering we are still only running at 260 users in total. The thing for me now is to begin assessing the impact of content.

I had a check of the Moodle user accounts today and we now have 66 staff and 150 students registered; some students seem to have problems getting their email accounts correct, this could become an admin issue for us. The course status at the moment is 52 with 288 modules.

Two systems, one login

Ran an extra training session this morning, which went well and spent most of the afternoon creating courses for everyone that had attended.

Growing demand for Moodle

Moodle Journal

Its looks as if I may need to revise one of the earlier posts where I expressed the view there would not be many more takers for Moodle training before September start, when today's calls to our admin office resulted in us having to arrange two training sessions for next week.

Is this the first Moodle book?

Just looking around the net today I find what I believe is the first book on Moodle, from O'Reilly Publishing. The example chapter certainly looks encouraging. If you want to take a look at the webpage Click here

I can still remember the days when a software package came with a manual, convenient, easy to read and reference, needless to say I just cannot feel the same about the online help hyperlinked substitutes that we are made to use now.

Content harvesting

As of November 23rd 2005, the OAIster harvester has some 6,073,500 records from 572 institutions. To complement our VLE at Bromley we have a Content Repository, DSpace.

Using OAIster, you can carryout searches on metadata and associated resources.

Moodle conference

Moodle Journal

Our Moodle conference went very well, and I am pleased to say that it was recorded on video and I shall be getting along to the College studio soon to edit the presentations and getting them online at this blog, so stay tuned for that. on Wednesday I went along to one of our College sites to deliver an intro to Moodle course for the staff there. Over the holiday period I am going to be updating my course notes for our new Moodle 1.5

Well thats phase 1 over anyway

Moodle Journal

It’s the end of winter term and phase 1 of the Moodle rollout here at Bromley College. I have been banging on about these phases but basically phase 1 gets materials, links and simple feedback onto Moodle, which hopefully translates into timesavings for staff; the big one for now. But has it improved anything for students?

A new Toolbox

Moodle Journal

I recently came across the RSC e-Toolbox. The toolbox is a collection of hardware and software tools that are grouped under the headings of: Assessment, Content Creation, Communications, Learning Management Tools, Mobile Learning, Multi Media, Networking, Repurposing,Repository, Videoconferencing, VLE Application, Web, Whiteboards and looks like becoming a one-stop-shop for e-Learning and VlE developers, you can take a look from here or the icon in the sidebar

Making life a little easier

Moodle Journal

I was looking arond the net the other day for some images that I could make use of, a task complicated by the issues of copyright of course, and came across Yotophoto.com. Its a search engine for free-to-use stock photographs and images. After running a search, the returned thumbnails are accompanied by the terms of licence , making life a little easier, yes

Across the chasm

Moodle Journal

The end of this term will mark the completion of phase one for our Moodle rollout and staff numbers are currently just over 100. I always had a concern, borne out of experience I must add, that the numbers just would not materialise to make the second and third phases a going proposition. Basically you have to get past that minimum, which is what you may ask? I guess the answer is often that it depends, but as part of my original proposal I cited Moores curve as my favoured model.

One busy week for Moodle

Moodle Journal

Lots happening this week. Ran a Moodle training session for staff on thursday morning, seven made it and it really went down well. My plans to hold a Moodle conference at the end of term seem to be taking shape with the 19th December looking promising; you can expect some photos and pod cast from that, maybe even video.

No filing cabinets please

Moodle Journal

I was having a look at the types of resource users have uploaded to our new Moodle system the other day. At first I was surprised to see the total of just over 700, but then encouraged somewhat by the realisation that this would not have included lesson plans, as the drive remains for these to be stored on the Intranet and maybe my frequent warnings of not allowing the system to become a dumping ground for filing cabinets is working.

Lets try that again

Moodle Journal

My idea of running the Moodle training as a self study pack seems to have fallen on hard ground, after I discovered virtually zero activity on the training accounts, and of course quite reasonably the problem is time, or lack of it for everyone involved. So the next move is to run 30 minute support drop-in workshop slots each week, where at least candidates get to work together for a while. Please stay tuned on this one
