Virtual Classroom Adoption – The Four Stages of Change

InSync Training

Adopting, and excelling at, the virtual classroom is much more about attitudinal change than it is about implementing technology. Organizations spend more time worrying about firewalls, security, hardware, and software (important topics all) than they think about adoption and usability. Ultimately, people need to BELIEVE that the virtual classroom will work.

Learning Technologies 2010 – Day 2 Recap

Upside Learning

After having a great first day at the Learning Technologies 2010 I was looking forward to an exciting second day. He mentioned that big names like HP, Symantec, BT, IBM, Westinghouse, Cisco, and CA are some of the organizations who are successfully adopting Informal Learning tools & models. Kids are very smart and are already onto the new technologies. These are just indicators of what technological tools/help our children will have.

Top 9 e-Learning Predictions for 2014


2013 was an exciting year for e-Learning professionals with many discussions around learning paradigms and technologies. We started the year with our own forecasts through ‘ Top 11 Disruptive e-Learning Technologies ’, many of which, when we look back, turned out to be accurate. We believe that 2014 will see more powerful changes, owing to the maturing and convergence of some of these technologies. Wider adoption of the 70:20:10 framework for organizational development.

Monotonous to Fascinating: Changing Employee Training Module


Technology has revolutionized our daily lives and so the training. Now with the help of engaging contents, you can provide training to your employees or learn a new technology. We spoke to Arijit Lahiri, Co-Founder, QuoDeck Technologies to understand their vision and how it can be helpful for enterprises. This is cloud-hosted, some of the microservices can actually iterate what we call Omprem, behind the firewall. Why would enterprise adopt your solution?

Social Networking – A Contrarian View

Upside Learning

Today, I’m going to adopt a contrarian view. Sure, lots of companies want to replicate ‘Facebook’ behind the firewall; safe from prying eyes, but open enough for employees to freely express themselves. Social technologies are going to take time to be adopted, just like it too years before people thought email. We all know social networks promote learning; while the mechanisms aren’t documented or well-understood, that it works isn’t in doubt anymore.

Association Learning Systems: Why and How to Invest in a Specialized LMS

Talented Learning

Only 30% of association professionals are “very satisfied” with their LMS, according to a recent survey by technology provider, Abila. Rather, it must integrate with other functional and business systems, as well as other tools and resources that “live” inside and outside of your organization’s firewall. Yet they may not like or accept new technology or processes right away. Director of Technology, New Teacher Center.

The Promise Of 3D Learning

Upside Learning

Why then is there such a gap between technology development and adoption by the L&D community? Off-the-cuff, I think there are some definite reasons this is happening: System cost/cost of development – It isn’t budget friendly to implement a ‘behind the firewall’ system that allows for collaborative 3D. Only the early adopters with deep pockets have potential to deploy such systems.

Answers: How Do I Get Started With xAPI?


That’s pretty darn impressive considering the impact on other programs and agencies in US Government alone, and that it’s seen so much adoption. The Experience API is just one technology — the first of a larger architecture we proposed to the Center for National Research Initiatives back in 2010. First, Ellen Meiselman is arguably the first actual adopter of the Experience API in the seminal work she’s been doing with the University of Michigan Health System.

Encourage innovation, diversity and economic opportunity within (and outside of) the learning technology community. None of us standards nerds are used to the market so quickly adopting what we create. This success comes with a sharp edge: it’s exactly the meteoric adoption of what the spec is today that will slow down getting to everything else on the above list. Adopting the Experience API is supposed distribute power and opportunity — not create a new hegemony.

What came first, Covid-19, or the desire for remote working? And what comes next?


Everywhere we look, organizations are making sharp pivots in the way that they work, quickly shifting to new remote working realities, handling shortages in staff or resources, and enabling their clients and employees to reach them with the support of truly innovative technologies. This growth appears to align with broader cloud technologies, as 57% of respondents to the Flexera State of the Cloud Report 2020 agree that cloud usage has grown due to Covid-19.

SMBs and Social Learning Technologies

Janet Clarey

Where we are today: Primary forms of social learning technologies used in corporations today appear to be e-mail, live online learning (Web conferencing), threaded discussion, and collaborative content development. Organizations are just beginning to use social media technologies and few are using the social learning technologies available in their LMSs. Tagging/Bookmarking - described how they worked; relatively low adoption but may increase as more LMSs include.

Shrinking LMS Implementation Fees Drive Market Expansion

Talented Learning

Firewalls, server sizing, bandwidth, database preference, historical data migrations, customizations and integrations were complex and problematic. The terror of the technology has been tamed and the buyer IT role has been reduced from autocrat to strategic project adviser. Adoption marketing services? All of this translates into more organizations being able to afford an LMS and the rapid expansion of learning technology.

“It’s not so much the learning or the social learning that needs to be measured but the performance outcome that’s really important,” said Jane Hart, founder of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies. ” Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company that uses various facets of social learning such as instant messaging, group discussion boards and video chat, adopted a similar measurement strategy.

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), the melding of ERP, SCM, CRM, PLM, and what-not into one all-encompassing application, is a major step forward, but it doesn’t link the organization with those outside the firewall such as partners and suppliers. Those who adopt the process mindset take on significant new responsibilities, for everyone knows that the people in the organization are more important than the technology.

But people are starting to bring their own technology to work with expectations that IT will support it. But companies have been on the front end of major technology transformations before, said Avron Barr, director of the International Federation for Learning, Education, and Training Systems Interoperability (LETSI), a nonprofit organization focused on technology in learning. Further, vendors have a responsibility to keep up with the technology.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

In years past implementing technology cost millions of dollars. Today, the technology is CHEAP and fast to implement. Better yet, is there a social network similar to facebook lurking behind your firewall that hasn't been announced yet? That's where you get the early adopters (typically younger, newer employees) who "get it" help the late adopters get into the game. I recently finished listening to the audiobook, groundswell by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff.

interaction behind the company firewall – safe, secure conversations not visible to the public. and that’s great because now we are replacing it with ‘new media’ with new technologies and attitudes. this is the ACTA treaty, adopted in a few places like maybe Korea, France. ultimately companies will be able to run their own wave server – behind firewall if they want. adoption in enterprise is inability to link back to business objectives.
