eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010.

2010 Predictions - Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

January's Big Question at the Learning Circuits blog asks for our 2010 predictions. Those corporate training departments that moved so much training online in a haste to cut costs will recognize the ROI of quality classroom training.

Clive on Learning

Work Context: The New Classroom

Living in Learning

After 22 years in the telecom industry, all but four of them with AT&T and Sprint, I had a very humbling experience. Fifteen of those years were spent living out of a suitcase as a roving sale trainer and then as a manager. My “humbling” may more accurately be described as an epiphany. It was shocking to me because I had convinced myself – after more frequent flyer miles and Marriott points than a human could use – that I had the sales training gig figured out. And I did.

Integrated Learnings

I recently came across a discussion on LinkedIn that debated whether classroom (instructor-led) training is more credible than eLearning. As training professionals, we have the knowledge to make informed decisions about whether to use classroom training, eLearning, or another approach to meet an instructional need. In the LinkedIn discussion thread, training professionals suggested a variety of reasons that classroom training may be perceived as more credible than eLearning.

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Technology in the Classroom – Hindrance or Help?

E-Learning Acupuncture

Our world would come to a standstill without technology, so why are we even asking the question if it would be more of hindrance than help in a classroom? When it comes to the school classroom, there’s a reason why technology should be restricted.
