#40years of educational technology: Social media

Learning with e's

Previous posts in this series tracked the development of educational technology over 40 years. Other tools such as wikis, blogs and podcasts also began to be used in education, at first tentatively, and then as embedded features in various programmes of study.

Digital assignments: How shall we grade them?

Learning with e's

Many of the modules I teach at my university deal with alternative methods of learning and teaching, and focus a great deal on new and emerging technologies. Over the next few academic years I predict that submitting assignments in alternative digital formats will become the norm.

Leading with an LMS - Harmful to Your Health (or Skipping Stages in Bersin's Four Stage Model)

Tony Karrer

Alternatives are described in my article Tracking Without an LMS. In other words, pick up a Wiki tool, or RoboInfo or Dreamweaver and start to build online reference solutions with integrated search first. I recently was piling through my stack of magazines and ran across an article in Training & Development Magazine that reference "the stages of eLearning" from a Josh Bersin report.

So what’s the alternative? Not to mention blogs, wikis, discussion forums and social bookmarks. More specifically, it should deliver, track and record standalone tests that are linked to particular competencies. A touch dramatic, isn’t it?

To add an element of competition, a leaderboard tracked and displayed which players had made the most finds. While games like these provide a fun alternative to boring quizzes, they do not provide context.

They talked TechSmith into giving all of the attendees of the conference a copy of Camtasia to get us started on the right track. Guest post by teacher, Steve Kelly. It took a rude awakening for me to realize I had fallen behind as an educator.

as well as the Design with Intent Wiki where you'll be able to read even more about the system and the thinking behind it! As Dan pits it in his wiki it is an 'idea generation tool, provoking design ideas by asking questions and giving examples of particular principles in action'.

Looking Back at 2007

Tony Karrer

And if you are talking Reusable Learning Objects, Courseware Templates, Tracking Mechanisms, Content Management, etc. capabilities, with tracking being done behind the scenes. There's also more community platforms and other kinds of alternative solutions being discussed. but interestingly the discussion has been more of how to fit SCORM on top of alternative tools such as Wikis rather than the demise of SCORM.

Top 5 LMSs for 2017

eLearning 24-7

I also look at where the system has been (related to features), where it is going, and it’s track record. A blog, profile, wiki won’t do it. Hello – video course with tracking. They are not alternative facts. I love information. Knowledge. Insight. Acquiring facts and ideas from one publication to the next. Every day, I read cover to cover The New York Times , Washington Post and LA Times. It’s an addiction.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?

Learning Visions

Because (1) LMSs in corporations are primarily used to track stuff (IMHO) so until open source is truly able to slice and dice data (often custom reports) for executives they won't replace commercial LMSs. (2) I'm fairly certain that google analytics could crawl a moodle install and reveal some amazing tracking measurements. I've seen some very impressive uses of google analytics as a measurement/tracking tool for web-based training.

Elearning on cellphones and PDAs is still pretty experimental and there are huge challenges with user progress tracking, content synchronisation and getting the instructional model right.

While the tracking element can provide an essential tool to units outside of the L&D function, whether it is desirable to lock away all the knowledge for the benefit of a certain subset is a different matter. It should be a place for storing, tracking and updating information on people’s competencies. You have those blogs and wikis, so lets use them people! View an alternate.
