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.

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.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

The proliferation of so-called rapid authoring tools over the last few years has coincided with an explosion in the number of online courses developed in-house. These days, however, everyone seems to be creating their own online courses and distributing them via an LMS.

Reflections on ISPI 2010

Clark Quinn

Early in the year, I gave a presentation online to the Massachusetts chapter of ISPI (the international society for performance improvement), and they rewarded me with a membership. A nice gesture, I figured, but little more (only a continent away). To my benefit, I was very wrong. The ISPI organization gave each chapter a free registration to their international conference, which happens to be in San Francisco this year (just a Bart trip away), and I won!

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. It made me immediately think back to my first experience with an online session. Because it was their first ever public session and my first ever online session neither of us knew what we were doing. It definitely takes additional thinking/preparation to be good online.

Social media – big in 2010 for L&D…or not

From the Coleface

At this time of year, there’s loads of commentators talking about emerging trends in L&D in 2010. By virtue of this their work and personal lives are much more intrically linked and there is a commercial incentive for them to be active online. I look forward to being sent URLs/ screenshots of online communities that are enhancing organisational performance by sharing learning, because I think this would be great.

Online Tools for Evaluating Informal Learning

The Peformance Improvement

Learning occurs in "informal" (another term that I don’t like but is gaining traction) settings and online, as well as in the classroom. Some of the methods being used in informal science education could be applied more broadly to informal and online learning in business, nonprofit, and government settings. For example, in a youth program that has a focus on interactive media, the projects produced by youth are posted to online environment.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I'm helping different people to facilitate online trajectories. It's always funny to see that people who are experienced facilitators face-to-face are so scared for an online process. And then suddenly they see they can use the same basic facilitation skills online. Somehow online, participation seems lower because the people who are reading with attention are not visible. The online facilitator has various tasks, ranging from technical to social.
