A Podcast for Training Magazine

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Here is a summary of the podcas t I recently did with Training magazine Senior Writer Margery Weinstein about a better way to learn. Margery Weinstein: When you say "interactivity in training," what are you referring to? VJ: Learners are better engaged when their trainer establishes a two-way dialog. Monolog, as we know, is boring. This is true regardless of the learning modality – be it classroom instruction or e-learning.

LMS Tracking of Podcasts and Video Casts

Tony Karrer

They currently provide some podcasts and video casts, but would like to track the new content that is being developed now. I received an interesting question from someone who is working on providing content to a remote sales force of about 40 people on topics such as selling process, products and selling skills. It seems like this should be an obvious question. You can put the audio or video inside a SCORM course and load it into an LMS.

Podcasting = Continuous Production NOT One-off Course Production

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

The beauty of podcasting is NOT that you have an easy way to send ONE or TWO audio (or video) recordings of an instructor leading an in-class course or instructor-led training. If that's all you are doing then you have NOT created a podcast. NOT PODCASTING!

Switch: When change is hard.

ID Reflections

The “how” or delivery of a good training program should also appeal to a learner’s emotions—perhaps through the use of simulations, stories, games, case studies, videos, movie clips, podcasts, anything that can engage the heart as well as the mind. Some is not a number; soon is not a time!

The cult of the question

Clive on Learning

Videos, podcasts, screencasts, reference guides, even simple slide shows, can all be valuable resources and will be used increasingly in learning solutions. Sometimes it seems that instructional designers are obsessed with questions. They cannot imagine an effective learning resource that is not liberally sprinkled with opportunities to interact: Plain text is frowned at, yet strangely not in blogs or on the WIkipedia. Page turners are frowned at, yet strangely not on your Kindle.

Ad-hoc Social Learning Environment - How a Blog Drives Learning

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

The program, dubbed BaseCamp 2010, addressed 40 participants drawn from the senior and mid-level ranks of the company. Blog posts provided a guiding theme and then pointed to a web resource such as a YouTube video, or a podcast or a news story article or a case study. The whole of BaseCamp 2010 was delivered in asynchronous mode, and that did not stop us from interacting in meaningful ways. I recently conducted a one-month leadership development program at Harbinger Group.

E-learning modules are not the complete replacement

Clive on Learning

A text document, video or podcast is much better suited to this task than a tutorial and, assuming it isn't already available as a web resource, is much easier to put together. Imagine you were running a pretty traditional formal course composed of face-to-face classroom sessions, backed up by handouts or reference books.
