2011 Predictions

Clark Quinn

Taking the steps now have some immediate payoffs in terms of optimizing content development streams and looking anew at what are important interactions, but the big returns come in creating optimized learning and performance interactions.

Where is the model for e-learning?

Clive on Learning

As designers, we don't have that steady stream of everyday examples to give us inspiration. With most learning media, there is an expectation of how it should look and behave based on the mass media. We can benchmark what we do against 1000s of everyday examples. We can model our learning videos on what we see on TV and on YouTube. We can model podcasts on what we hear on the radio. We have endless examples from print media and the World Wide Web on which to model our text-based materials.

Twiitering = learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I used a Dutch article about various learning theories : ontwikkeling van leren in organisaties by Keursten to look at what the various thought streams might think about twitter: Behaviorism: learning is equivalent to influencing and changing behaviour.

The Promise Of 3D Learning

Upside Learning

Same applies to bandwidth, it is now good enough to stream video, and should easily transfer data for 3D. Every now and again I wonder about the multi-user 3D environments, or virtual worlds that were all the rage just a couple of years ago, the finest example being Second Life.

Facebook’s New Streaming Service: What You Need to Know


There has been a lot of buzz within and outside of the tech community about live streaming. From Snapchat’s debut in 2011 to Twitter’s ugly war with Meerkat and its later acquisition of the streaming service, Periscope , Facebook is now tentatively entering the live streaming market.

Our Takeaways from DevLearn 2011

E-learning Uncovered

Twelve Ways to Add Value to Open Source LMS Systems

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Video streaming Moodle does not stream video effectively. For better streaming experience third party integration with services like YouTube, Kaltura and so on. I've been too wrapped up thinking about interactivity to pay attention to the pains learning managers must go through for making their Moodle implementations effective.

The Key to Adoption of Collaboration Tools: Process Integration

Dashe & Thomson

Tips for Starting to Freelance

Experiencing eLearning

Multiple Income Streams. In August, I quit my job as a long-term contractor at Cisco to officially make the leap to freelancing. I did some side projects earlier in the year, but not enough to replace my full-time income. I want to share my experiences and tips from these first three months as an independent contractor for anyone else thinking about making this change. Get a Project First. If you’re currently working, don’t quit until you have a project lined up.

Face-to-face is for special occasions

Clive on Learning

A great deal of your media consumption is asynchronous - under your time control - using iPods, hard disk video recorders, streaming media and the like. Ask yourself. What proportion of the music that you consume is at a live performance? Chances are it's something between 0 and 10%. What proportion of the drama that you watch is at the theatre, rather than at the cinema or on TV? I'd be surprised if it's more than a few percent.

Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager

ID Reflections

This is the proverbial organizational hive mind but someone has to enable the enterprise to make sense of this stream, separate the wheat from the chaff, and connect the dots to reveal the key patterns below. Faced with the tsunami of information, we are all floundering to find our way to content that actually matters. From setting up filters--both of the automated and human variety--to trying to make sense of what we find, we are in a fix, so to speak.

My life…in elearning

Learning Visions

The Six Hats of a Community Manager

ID Reflections

Theactivity stream turns into an overwhelming flood and people lose control oftheir information flow. In my previous post, I wrote about the tenets of communitymanagement based on my learnings from the past 6 months.

eLearning 24-7

Streaming Media. In an upcoming webinar, that I am presenting and in a blog post – coming soon, that streaming media will have a positive impact on e-learning courses and capabilities, opening a greater immersion capability then ever seen before in the industry. From the end user perspective, 49% stream media from the net to their television, while 51% do not. I foresee the numbers of people who use e-learning and stream will increase in the range of +8 to 10%.

Learning with e's
