When I was an undergraduate, I became excited about the connection between computers and learning. My uni didn’t have a relevant degree back then, but I could design my own if I could get a faculty member to be my mentor.Â

Typically these notes are then reported in a spreadsheet, a Word doc, via email, or occasionally through a more robust tracking system. Alternatively the comments can be stored in a shared network location so that comments from every reviewer can be housed in the same location. These components are then able to track user input (say, the selection of a value in a combo box) and utilize that input elsewhere in the project.

Either way, Justin will never know, because there's no tracking. In my mind this is an absolutely routine question format: whichever option the learner chooses, they receive some feedback which will hopefully provide them with an alternative perspective and cause them to reflect a little; if they want, they can then choose further options, not only to hunt down the 'right answer' but maybe just to see what sort of feedback they would get.

Best Open Source MOOC Platforms for Businesses


Dave Cormier coined the term MOOC in 2008. It was one of the top factors for introducing MOOCs as affordable alternatives. They are an alternative to classroom notes and books. The platform must provide an online alternative of the same. Since it is not possible to interact with other students and professors in person in a MOOC, the platform must provide an online alternative in the form of discussion forums and threads.

I agree the technologies to create, deploy and manage HTML5-based mobile web apps will greatly improve in 2012 but I don't feel they will mature to the point they can replace all native apps – at least in most of the primary enterprise use cases for learning that’s managed and tracked.

Karl Kapp – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators (Part 1)


Karl: Gamification, as a term, has only been around for about five years (2008), and so I think the entire “gamification” concept is still an emerging trend with its best days still ahead. We need to have mobile enabled content that doesn’t require tracking by the LMS and we have to get rid of the notion that if learning isn’t tracked it’s not formal or not valuable. The data side of gamification (tracking, monitoring and measuring) will provide a powerful tool.

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