May's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

Learning Circuits' Big Question for May is "So what can, should, or will, we offer the digital generation by 2015?" We probably will see it replace Flash for video/audio support, but it will fall short in its quality and level of interactivity and animation. Five years is not very far into future, but in terms of technology things can change immensely in that amount of time. Just think of how learning technology has changed in the past five years.

Mobile Learning Via Audio Lesson One: If you want to find out how to create effective mobile learning, purchase a Nintendo DS and some educational games.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Kapp Notes

Around the same time, the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog had the July "Big Question" which was "Choosing Tools" which is actually a series of questions: How does the eLearning design process need to change to accommodate such a wide variety of tools?

Clive on Learning

This month’s Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog asks what software tools, as learning and development professionals, we should set out to learn. It’s helpful for l&d people to explore the technical side (perhaps using a rapid authoring tool) or the creative side (simple image, audio and video editing), but never to venture into the extreme corners where lurk software engineers, graphic designers and other media professionals.

Another month of my life gone, another Big Question from the Learning Circuits Blog. And the questions don't get any easier do they? There'll be plenty of rapid content and in a wide variety of forms, including audio, video and slide shows. Can it be that time again? The problem with predictions is that they're almost impossible to make with any certainty. And if they cover too short a period, then it's easy for people to check back and prove you wrong.

The Learning Circuits Big Question is how do we address the "I want it now" demand from stakeholders. Usually audio is off the table first, which I always add last anyway and do not see it as adding much instructional value to most courses anyway. If you do need to make big compromises, remember those same stakeholders that say they want it now may also be quick to come back at you with something like, "Your training was ineffective.

eLearning Cyclops

September's Big Question over at the Learning Circuits Blog is regarding use of voice-over in e-learning. The question addresses numerous topics regarding the use of audio.
