2009 Review

Experiencing eLearning

Looking at just the numbers, my number of views didn’t increase dramatically in 2009. It’s time for that annual ritual of looking back at the year. Unlike last year , this year I’m actually reviewing before the new year starts. What did I do this year? A few things come to mind. In January, we officially launched Sakai as our LMS , marking the end of a long process of choosing the right system and converting all our courses.

ASTD ICE 2009 -Impressions

Web Courseworks

I’ll confess that I may not have been at the ASTD conference every day this past week, but I do have some impressions of the event I’d like to share. I was pleasantly surprised at the large turn-out (unofficial estimates are somewhere around 8,000), which was comprised of a large contingent of international attendees and probably a good amount of people networking for a job. This was my first visit to ICE since the DotCom Era.

But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009.

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning.

I wrote this one back in June 2009 and it does seem to be the year of Moodle. The eLearning Guild’s 2009 LMS report certainly agrees , and by evidence of the number of corporate Moodle projects we’ve worked on this year at Kineo the tipping point seems to have arrived. Why not ten? I don’t know.

Predictions for 2009

eLearning Cyclops

My predictions for 2009: With the continued economic difficulties, e-learning will grow due to its cost efficiency, or at least its perceived cost efficiency. And because of its low environmental impact it will become very attractive to companies wishing to become "green." Blogs and social media will grow as a knowledge management tool. It has already begun, but we will see it become more common place.

12 eLearning Predictions for 2009

Tony Karrer

In my post, 2008 2009 - written in December 2008, I looked at how well I did in those predictions, and my results were pretty good, not perfect. Some training will still be preferred face to face such as when team building or in-person soft skills are important, but 2009 will be the year when we realize that we should be justifying any in-person training. 2009 is going to be a big year for this issue. Last year I laid out in January my Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008.

Following on from my previous article , below I share some of the key messages that I drew from Day 2 at the LearnX Asia Pacific conference held recently in Sydney… Personal Professional Development: I expected the keynote by Stephen Downes to be the standout session of the event, and I was not disappointed. Instead of focusing on supporting the learning of others, Stephen shifted his focus to how e‑learning professionals can support their own learning.

CIPD Learning and Development Survey 2009

Upside Learning

CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) recently published their annual Learning and Development report and is now available for download. Some data that’s emerged is quite interesting. “Fewer practitioners (39 per cent) are involved in “introducing or extending e-learning” this year, a fall of 6 per cent on 2008.&#. It’s disappointing to read that a little more than a third of the respondents will introduce or continue their eLearning programs.

TCC 2009 Conference

Experiencing eLearning

For those interested in online learning (especially on the academic side of things), you may want to check out the TCC (Technology, Colleges, and Community) 2009 conference. The conference is April 14-16, 2009. This is the online conference I attended last year and liveblogged extensively. In 2007, I didn’t liveblog, but I did a summary post of ideas. Early bird registration is only $69, so it’s a very affordable conference even if your budget is tight.

Working full time from a home office. Oldest child in kindergarten. New challenges – and some old ones too. A great year, really.

This time, the survey is also trying to examine the impact of the economic situation on salary hikes – which would be interesting to see.
