Comment Challenge Catch-Up

Experiencing eLearning

Social Networking as LMS: Problems and Opportunities. Facebook as LMS? My two posts about Facebook and other social networking sites as LMS (Learning Management Systems) were also popular. The best discussions were posts where I took a stand on something a bit controversial: the need for technology skills and Facebook/social networking as LMS. I’m slowly catching up on the comment challenge. I’d planned to do a bit more over the weekend.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

MMVIII (2008) started off visual and mobile to be sure. Since the eLearning community tends to lag a little behind I would have to say that twitter hit the eLearning community strongest in 2008. Yes, twitter, the darling of the micro-blogging goldrush is absolutely the big story of 2008. Twitter wins the 2008 "Big Story" award in my world. Personally, 2008 made me realize that it is VERY dangerous to generalize a generation of people.

Friend and fellow troublemaker Bonnie Bracey Sutton got a discussion going on Facebook about an October 2 InfoWorld opinion piece asking " Should computer programming be mandatory in US schools?

Groups generate unnecessary noise, which is already the biggest problem with Twitter. Even if you want Twitter groups, Twitter is working on this "feature" as a top priority after stabilization, so it would be better to wait until the official implementation arrives rather than Balkanize the Twitter community with a plethora of Facebook-style groups. Twitter is not Facebook. You are right that Twitter is not Facebook. Not everyone subscribes to Facebook or Twitter.
