Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” For example, Harold Jarche tells us 2010: Year of the CM.

21st Century Workplace Challenges

ID Reflections

The paragraph below taken from Harold Jarche’s post Success depends on who we work with reminded me of a post I had written some time back, the Molotov cocktail = Weak ties x complicated knowledge. I have quoted some of these related to the topic at hand below: People find it hard to transfer knowledge when they don't know each other well (a weak tie). Weak ties create havoc when people need to transfer tacit knowledge.

Challenge to Learn

Jane Hart said that she went from e-Learning to social business (see her blog on the subject), that’s an interesting shift of perception which makes me wonder where I am. And he had the tweet of the day: “Knowledge workers of the world, collaborate. Charles Jennings made a great point that the goal of learning isn’t to gain knowledge or to train skills, but to change the behavior of people. Today was a very good day.

Collaboration: A mantra that makes work play!

ID Reflections

Background: I think most knowledge workers approach work from two perspectives. One where we see what we have to do daily as our commitment and call of duty towards projects, clients, team, and the business. Knowledge of each other’s work, communication and learning styles.

The Advantages of eLearning

eLearning Brothers

Technology has revolutionized business; now it must revolutionize learning. The mission of corporate eLearning is to supply the workforce with an up-to-date and cost-effective program that yields motivated, skilled, and loyal knowledge workers. This will enable businesses to distribute training and critical information to multiple locations easily and conveniently. I came across this article and thought it listed some nice advantages of eLearning. Have a read!

Formal Learning All the Way.Baby

Kapp Notes

The processes have been formalized, in knowledge work, many of the processes are formalized. We like to think knowledge workers spend all day "problem-solving" but in reality they spend all day finding out what procedure should be followed in what situation. Do we expect college students in a economics class to understand entrepreneurship without ever having run a business?

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

How the Brain Works in the 21st Century As some of you already know, many organizations are idea-driven in the 21st-century knowledge economy. Compared to the 20th-century industrial economy where many workers were valued for what was below the shoulders, 21st-century knowledge workers are usually valued for what's above the shoulders. As a result, many of today's workers rely on their brains more and more for day-to-day tasks.

Factory workers once were paid for what they produced. In a mechanized system, the slowest worker produced only slightly less than the fastest. If workers produced one widget an hour, paying by the hour was equivalent to paying by the widget. Effectiveness – Jay Cross.

Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

Workers are disgruntled 10. What worked twenty years ago doesn’t work well in the social, always-on, networked world of business we now inhabit. Service industries challenge workers to acquire tacit knowledge — the kind of know-how one learns on the job, not in the classroom. Management became recognized as a profession, Harvard Business School opened its doors, and the term “executive education” was first used. Workers are disgruntled.

For example, Pink argues that by 2010, India will become the largest nation of English speakers in the world. In addition, other developing nations are minting capable knowledge workers that can crunch numbers, read charts, and write code.and do it cheaper than we can. We've progressed from a society of factory workers to a society of knowledge workers. For example, while electric lighting is now common place, candles are a $2 billion a year business.

Demand for the services of these workers will grow as organizations continue to seek ways to improve efficiency and control costs.

Knowledge work and learning to work smarter are becoming indistinguishable. The accelerating rate of change in business forces everyone in every organization to make a choice: learn while you work or become obsolete. It needn’t be this way, particularly since knowledge work and learning are nearly indistinguishable. Industrial age workers created value in factories. Knowledge workers create value in workscapes.
