Spark Your Interest

I think it’s a brilliant program and want to ensure that we are considering assessment and tracking as part of the design process, not as an afterthought. Further reflection hasn’t really changed my original opinion, but I am wondering what the alternatives are. I’m working on a project that included a question from the client -do we need an LMS? My response? Rationale. This is a non-profit that offers a type of bootcamp to a very focused audience of CEO’s.

The Pulse of Mobile Learning

Allison Rossett

ASTD’s 2011 Annual State of the Industry (SOIR) Report found even punier use of mobile for learning and support. ASTD’s 2011 Learning in the Palm of Your Hand report identified the same halting progress, accompanied by little action on mobile strategy or investment. While this mobile app is only a first try that lacks the the richness that comes from assessment and tracking, it is nothing to sneeze at. A faint pulse today.

Seven Things I Learned This Year

LMS and Learning Tracking Still Struggling While LMS solutions continue to get better, more powerful, more diverse, I continue to find myself searching for just the right solution for particular needs. I was also struggling for clients who needed very simple learning tracking but with some customizations.

Content can also be more organized and tracked. In late 2011, ON24 conducted another study evaluating the use of virtual communication and training tools compared to traditional in-person methods.

  But  even if a LMS had existed, it certainly is a ludicrous idea to think that it could have come with me to Germany to track all the conversations I had or overheard, all the TV programmes I watched, or all the magazine and newspaper articles I read.    And it is this common goal that we need to encourage and support, rather than try and track and monitor and manage activity in traditional management systems.  2011 C4LPT blog

Improve Quality of Life With Virtual Learning

CLO Magazine

In 2009, given the economic downturn, the group’s management began to experiment with alternatives to costly and time-consuming live meetings. Pleased with summer 2010 virtual meeting results, the company decided to replicate the process in January 2011 and created “Show Your Sodexo Spirit” — a themed learning event for winter 2011. Demonstrated success from 2009 through 2011 meant it could justify expanding the program’s scope and mission.
