Clive on Learning

Today saw a tremendous gathering of the who's who of UK learning technologies in the historic debating chamber of the Oxford Union.

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.

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.

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.

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.
