Devlearn conference 2011: retrospective

Challenge to Learn

I’m back home after a great DevLearn conference. Looking (and reading) back at the conference there are several things that stick out for me. Atmosphere. This was my second Guild conference (been to Learning Solutions in March) and one thing that really struck me at both conferences is the atmosphere. It’s a world of difference if you compare it to the Online Educa in Berlin or the Learning Solutions in London. Both guild conferences have the feeling of a gathering of peers.

Reflections 2011

Clark Quinn

On this, the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere, it seems like a good time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the coming one. It’s certainly been an interesting year, and a good one personally. I feel there are lots of reasons to hope for good things to be coming too. The opportunities are big. First of all, mobile really has taken off.

2011 Predictions

Clark Quinn

For the annual eLearn Mag predictions, this year I wrote: I think we’ll see some important, but subtle, trends.

These trends are precursors to some very interesting nascent capabilities, essentially web 3.0: system-generated content.

Online Educa Berlin 2011 recap
