Instructional Design and E-Learning Blogs

Experiencing eLearning

Back when I wrote my instructional design careers series in 2007, I was only aware of a few blogs by instructional designers. Since then, I’ve discovered a wealth of blogs by instructional designers, e-learning developers, and workplace learning specialists. Design for Learning is written by Natalie Laderas-Kilkenny, a former coworker of mine who blogs on education and technology. In the Middle of the Curve is one of the first blogs I linked to, back in January 2007.

We’re still using those tools for some courses, depending on the content and activities, but we’re starting to integrate this internal blog into our activities. During the pilot of our new facilitator training course, I lurked in the forums during a heated debate about the use of the blog tool.

Blogging For Your Business – What Do You Know About It?

Your Training Edge

That’s true of most online marketing practices, but it applies doubly to blogging. Not so long ago, blogging was niche. It belonged to a fringe of the internet where most people never tread, much like the dark web does today. But blogging has come into the light and younger generations are. Blogging is a lot of work. The first misconception is that blogging is a big amount of work. This might push some businesses away from blogging.

13 Reasons Why This Blog Is Irrelevant

Mitch Moldofsky

Ever wonder why so many blogs have numbers in the title? which reflects the fact that blogs are all about marketing, really, rather than sharing info with peers. The fact is, any web design consultant will tell you that people don't read websites. If you take the number of blog posted every day and multiply it by the total number of "ways" and "tips" and "hints" and "super recipes" in each one, you get pi.

Blogging with Freire

Learning with 'e's

Paulo Freire, that great Brazilian educational thinker died in 1997, just as the World Wide Web was emerging in the Western world. So Freire didn't actually live to see the power and potential of social media, or the impact blogging would have on education. But what would he have said about blogs if he had been witness to the participatory web in all its present glory? In a blogging context, it is easy to be offended when an adverse comment is received on your blog.

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.
