eLearning 2.0 - Go Do It

Tony Karrer

Since my presentations last month at the Harvard Business School and at the eLearningGuild Annual Gathering, I've been getting several basic questions about what Web 2.0 and eLearning 2.0 I've been trying to answer these questions by pointing people to various descriptions I've provided in the past such as: What is eLearning 2.0? eLearning 1.0, and 2.0 Learning Trends Point To and Shape eLearning 2.0 and eLearning 2.0

eLearning 2.0 - An Immediate, Important Shift

Tony Karrer

I just finished reading a blog post on Read/Write Web - eLearning 2.0 - All You Need to Know. I'm a big believer in eLearning 2.0 and it's interesting to R/WW's take on eLearning 2.0. As you read through the post, you really don't get any sense for what eLearning 2.0 They talk about things like Nuuvo (more or less an LMS), Google Apps (online applications) as examples of eLearning 2.0

eLearning 2.0 Random Thoughts based on Chat

Tony Karrer

All the marketing was done through viral means - blogs primarily. One interesting result is that the audience for my eLearning 2.0 I just put this in a separate blog post. You learn about this using these tools and scanning sources like blogs, trying things out, forcing yourself to make time to learn. Social Bookmarking and Wikis and Blogs are a form of social networking I never said this, but several people pointed it out in the chat.

Personal Learning Tools and Technologies

Tony Karrer

Jane Hart has done a great job collecting individual answers to what learning tools and technologies that people use. At the same time, I agree with his call for sharing on these things and "learning over the shoulder" of others. And I also sympathize with the "no its personal" beat down he took.

Improving Personal Learning - A Continuing Challenge for Learning Professionals

Tony Karrer

The most important skills of a knowledge worker are learning skills. I would also suggest that learning skills are dramatically shifting over the past few years and learning professionals are not staying ahead of these shifts. If you take a look at what is being discussed in learning circles, I would claim that We Are Approaching Learning from the Wrong Direction. We need to focus on helping individuals be empowered and competent in their own learning.

Time Spent on Blogging

Tony Karrer

A frequent question I get at the end of any presentation on eLearning 2.0 is how much time I spend on blog reading and writing and how anyone can work that into their already too busy life. Blog reading and writing as part of scanning has been a replacement of other activities that I used to do - reading magazines and books. Originally, I didn't plan to replace these activities as I considered the information from blogs to be quite different.

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools. What is it about people in corporate learning that they feel the need to perpetuate the attitude of servitude it seems all learners must adopt. Stephen's very much correct about a PLE being for the person.

Social Media And Learning

She provides compelling reasons to implement a social and collaborative environment as part of workplace learning. You can read more from Jane at her blog, Social Media in Learning. eLearning Coach: You were an early adopter of using social technologies for learning purposes.

Training Specialist

Clark Quinn

Saw a post by Matthew Franz - where he tells us - I don't get e-learning 2.0 - and it made me wonder if Franz is a training specialist - who's not looking at more than training as a model for learning. Here's what he said: I just don't get why folks are trying to lump in wikis, blogs, rss, etc. as "e-learning." RSS, Blog, Wikis, etc. are also tools, but think of the absurdity of making a big deal of Excel as an "e-learning 1.0 about learning?

His examples include: Mainstream media -> YouTube Mainstream press -> Blogs Microsoft Office -> Office 2.0 But take a look at my post around eLearning 1.0 and eLearning 2.0 and particularly the picture: This is a picture of a transition going on within learning where SME generated content and eventually Do-It-Yourself (DIY) will become more and more important.

In yesterday's post I gave the first part of a review of the latest issue of the journal Interactive Learning Environments , which is a special issue entitled: 'Towards eLearning 2.0 There are 7 papers in the issue, each of which focus on social media that are being used to support and enhance learning in higher education. I promised I would continue the review today, right here on this blog, so here goes. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

What did I learn about learning in 2008?

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuit’s Blog Big Question for December is “What did you learn about learning in 2008?&# It’s good to reflect, and using the end of the calendar year is a traditional time. Consequently, I trolled back through a year of blog posts. I saw several recurrent threads, but the strongest one is on learning to learn. Which segues nicely into my second learning, which was about social learning.

Trends in Learning

Tony Karrer

Someone was just asking me about the big trends in learning and the implications of those trends on corporate learning and development. I initially said - "Look at my blog," but when I looked, I realized it might be a bit harder than I thought to pull out the central themes. So, here's a bit of a compilation of some of the things I've been talking about in my blog which points to some of the major trends in learning. And surveys such as Web 2.0

Horizontal Learning

Tony Karrer

Horizontal technologies for learning. In the eLearning sector many vendors have created eLearning solutions primarily for educational institutions. These technologies are supposedly designed for learning but that is not true. The concept of Learning Management System (LMS) was wrongly named. Same is true in the corporate eLearning space ( LMS Dissatisfaction on the Rise & Do You WANT an LMS? and eLearning 2.0 Interesting post.

Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage

Tony Karrer

I have a similar feeling about the limited value of these publications for me and it's something that I mention at most presentations I ever do on eLearning 2.0. In particular, I say that since I've begun to shift my scanning behavior to blogs (scanning is how you stay up-to-speed on a topic) - my rapid fire skimming of blogs via a Skim Dive Skim approach has meant that magazines have mostly become pretty irrelevant to me.

Monday Question - Learning Design Different Now?

Tony Karrer

Jim Belshaw suggested in a comment on a previous post suggested that a good model for a blog is to post a question each week that might stimulate discourse (something that many of us want). The basic question is: How is Learning Design different when we are using different learning techniques, especially bottom-up techniques based on personal learning and informal learning? eLearning 1.3 For eLearning 1.3,

Facebook Apprenticeship

Jay connects this to Cognitive Apprenticeship (my favorite model of learning), where the boss is modeling his thinking processes, and the employee can use that model as a guide to performance. As I commented on Jay’s blog: I’m reminded of an interview I heard (wish I knew where; time for Evernote?) That sort of open process can be quick, informative, and how Web 2.0  And this may be one of the answers to Brent Schlenker’s question about what is eLearning 2.0.

100 Conversation Topics

Tony Karrer

Today, I saw a post by someone suggesting ways to come up with ideas for blog post topics and they gave some examples. The examples were not all that relevant to most of the readers of this blog, but it definitely sparked a thought for me. Almost every time I have a conversation, I learn something new. Most of the time I learn something, I write a blog post. But I don't have nearly enough time to have conversations, learn and write blog posts.

eLearning Topics

Tony Karrer

Back in 2007, I pointed out various aspects of what I was seeing: strategy/strategic and performance are back as topics after dropping way down in 2006 surprisingly trainer is also back, you would think in the age of eLearning 2.0 And now, because of eLearning Learning , I have a much better way to track these things over a much more interesting content sets. For example, we see terms now at the top like Learning Management System , AICC , SCORM.
