You dont want to do it like that

Moodle Journal

Oh and while I am not on the subject, this week I literally turn my back for a moment and the whole Tracking project had been shut down, working group disbanded, and an offline alternative accepted as a short term measure, please don’t ask. I was at the conference recently and my ears picked up during the introduction when the presenter talked about his involvement in a JISC project that used the power of story for sharing of expertise.

Leading with an LMS - Harmful to Your Health (or Skipping Stages in Bersin's Four Stage Model)

Tony Karrer

Alternatives are described in my article Tracking Without an LMS. I recently was piling through my stack of magazines and ran across an article in Training & Development Magazine that reference "the stages of eLearning" from a Josh Bersin report. Unfortunately, the article is only available to ASTD members and via registration at Bersin's site.

Gamification of Learning and Training

Kapp Notes

Sun Microsystems has conjured up two, Dawn of the Shadow Specters and Rise of the Shadow Specters, which take place in an alternate universe called Solaris, colonized by a race of people who happen to reflect the company’s values. A leaderboard keeps track of the best scores.

2009 Top Posts and Topics: Kapp Notes

Kapp Notes

Alternatives to Second Life (continued, again). With my new book about Learning in 3D about to be released, I am always looking for new virtual 3D environments and worlds and wanted to keep track of ones that I have found with more a business focus. This 2006 entry continues to get attention. The ASTD Big question this month is an annual question: What did you learn about learning in 2009?

Looking Back at 2007

Tony Karrer

In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. And if you are talking Reusable Learning Objects, Courseware Templates, Tracking Mechanisms, Content Management, etc. capabilities, with tracking being done behind the scenes.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?

Learning Visions

Because (1) LMSs in corporations are primarily used to track stuff (IMHO) so until open source is truly able to slice and dice data (often custom reports) for executives they won't replace commercial LMSs.

I've seen some very impressive uses of google analytics as a measurement/tracking tool for web-based training.

Elearning on cellphones and PDAs is still pretty experimental and there are huge challenges with user progress tracking, content synchronisation and getting the instructional model right. visualisation tools coming online in the past year, it would be cool if something similar could track the e-learning edge!
