Blogging Since October 2005

Work Learning

I’ve been blogging since October 10, 2005; when I started using Typepad, an early blogging platform. Funny, they kept track of every payment I made, my first was on November 25, 2005, the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday here in the United States.

Snake Oil - Revisited | Beyond the Blog

The Learning Circuits

Back to the Future

The Learning Circuits

My goal back then was to reverse the trends, move away from just being 'the training department', jettison the canned Snake Oil approach, and move onto a better track that could help us become more valuable and valued by our companies.

Summary of Original Snake Oil Comments

The Learning Circuits

Most managers want to "track" their employees learning, and the only way to do that is with formal classroom and elearning courses. Initially, the thought of summarizing the 60 comments that came in reaction to Sam Adkins' Snake Oil post was daunting. But the reality turned out to be a joy.

SimWord of the Day: The Fifth Paradox of Educational Simulations

The Learning Circuits

By the way, for those who are tracking Star Wars Galaxies , this is playing out exactly as such When educational simulations are first created, they are heavy on simulation elements, and casual players complain they are too hard. Over iterations, as a result of the complaints, educational simulations are made easier and more fun, and serious players then complain they are not deep enough. (By

Working for a Strong Brand

The Learning Circuits

Unless they are fast-tracked, they grow resentful, ultimately either leaving, or sticking around but detached. I have noticed a pattern that I would like to share, even though it is somewhat tangential to the theme of this blog. I just saw it again yesterday. There are "Strong Brand" organizations: Microsoft, Google, Harvard University, IBM, Accenture. Even actors in a high-profile television series. New employees are excited to get in. The parents are thrilled. Friends are jealous.

Blogging by the Numbers

The Learning Circuits

A couple free stat counters (thanks SiteMeter and Bravenet) and several tracking spreadsheets that border on frightening later, we have a solid set of raw data. Do you track metrics for your blog? Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. Albert Einstein One of the projects in the revitalization of Learning Circuits Blog has been the establishment of a data set for capture and resulting metrics.

CNN vs Education

The Learning Circuits

Digital Rights Management is tracked, to honor the appropriate use of each media object. I would not suggest that higher education institutions need to operate like CNN, but I find it fascinating to read Elliot Masie's observations of how CNN dealt with the flow of content and information in the wake of Hurrican Katrina. In CNN Newsroom in the Midst of Katrina - "Rapid Development. Content Objects.

Simulations, Microcosms, Apprenticeships, and Skunk Works

The Learning Circuits

The role of technology in all of these can be transformational, suggesting projects or"matching people up" at the beginning, giving real-time workflow centric advice during, and then tracking results afterwards I wrote a book called Learning By Doing , all about the use of computer simulations in formal learning programs. But in many ways, it should have been called "Learning By Doing Part I."

Nested Feedback: Designing Learning Experiences for Generations for Gamers

The Learning Circuits

Do I know if I am on the right track? *Do One of the interesting parts of creating educational simulations is the role of nested feedback. At any given point, a learner should be getting feedback on short, medium, and long-term actions, all simultaneously. This thinking is very foreign to traditional instructional designers, but very familiar to anyone who builds or uses computer games. I like to think of feedback at intervals of Turn 1 , Turn 3 , and Turn 9.

The iPod Video & e-Learning Looking Glass

Vignettes Learning

How can we track progress? The holidays are coming and I must find a justification for buying (as a gift to myself) the iPod Video. Currently, I am enjoying my 40 Gig iPod for music and have downloaded hundreds of my favorite songs. The cool thing about iPod is the way I can organize, listen, and purchase music anytime I want. I can personalize my iPod. I’ve also added audio books and have now tested Podcasting files.

User Assistance: Standard Gauge

Gauge is the gap between railway tracks.) A year later, the chief rail track engineer in New South Wales was replaced, and the new chief convinced the New South Wales government to unilaterally change the NSW "standard" back to standard gauge. The  Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards , OASIS, approved the DITA standard in 2005, and although its adoption is growing, it is still nowhere near widespread in technical communication.

Serendipitous revisiting

Clark Quinn

So the work I did laying out the appropriate elements for game design in 1998 were appropriate for a book in 2005. I talked about learning games from about 2002 on, and finally it went from ‘emerging technologies’ to mainstream in the program track around 2008. In many ways, it can seem like we revisit the same old ideas again and again. I’ve ranged over design, social, games, mobile, strategy and more in many different ways.
