For my own part in the day I brought along the work that I had been conducting on eLearning, much publicised on this blog, but I did take the opportunity to promote Wimba Create, which I think went down very positively.

LMS vendors: R u hearing us?

eLearning 24-7

A surprisingly number of vendors who offer some form of social learning, whether it is the minimum – a FB like page, micro-blog, even some form of app sharing or collaborative tool, do not have any social media on their site. Why would I want to do business with you, when you are not even using any form of social media? They charge you to host your courses the ones you create in an offline authoring tool and then upload, materials, files, etc. on their server.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. Tools?
