Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

There’s method in my madness… The myth of rapid authoring. The proliferation of so-called rapid authoring tools over the last few years has coincided with an explosion in the number of online courses developed in-house.

EDGEX 2012: About Disruptive Education

ID Reflections

This sentence from Stephen Downes post AWorld to Change best exemplifies one of the key drivers behind a conferencelike EDGEX2012: We need to move beyondthe idea that an education is something that is provided for us, and toward theidea that an education is something that we create for ourselves. If you have ever been inspired by the writings of Paulo Freire ( Pedagogyof the Oppressed , Pedagogyof Hope ), then this conference is for you.

Yes, you do have to change

Clark Quinn

Of late, I’ve seen a disturbing trend. Not only are the purveyors of existing solutions preaching caution and steadiness, but it even seems like some of the ’names’ of the field are talking in ways that make it easy to think that the industry is largely doing ok. Learners need to perform, repeatedly, with guidance, over more and more complex contexts until they achieve the level of performance they need.

Driving formal & informal from the same place

Clark Quinn

However, I’ve been preparing a presentation from another way of looking at it, and I want to suggest that, at core, both are being driven from the same point: how humans learn. I was looking at the history of society, and it’s getting more and more complex. Businesses are now retreating from that point of view, and trying to get flatter, and more networked.

Training Industry

This “anytime, anywhere, any device” trend has entered the world of education.

These challenges include the transformation of the traditional learning model, the need to be agile and the existence of communities of practice. Today, we need to know everything, right away, at all times, whenever it suits us.

5 Ways to Prepare & Be an E-Learning Winner

Rapid eLearning

At the close of the conference, I participated in a panel presentation with some really smart people (not sure how I got invited). It’s usually the result of preparation and opportunity. While there are always all sorts of opportunities available, the challenge we face is that we’re not always prepared for them. Because of this, we are usually oblivious to the opportunities that exist. Instead I’d walk right past it oblivious to what’s right there in front of me.

At The Water Cooler of Learning

Marcia Conner

In our zeal to learn, we have transferred the formal model of learning into the collective mind of our corporations. We concluded that human assets are the most important element of our collective P&L. And the competitive advantage of smarter in a Darwinian business ecosystem eventually leads to more profits. We spend billions of dollars on formal training and education, and then we wonder, where is the payoff? Real learning, the kind of “aha!”

The future is not here yet

Learning with 'e's

I seem to be spending a lot of time lately travelling around talking about 'the future'. Does this make me a futurologist or some kind of prophet? If we did, most of us probably wouldn't dare stepping outside our homes. Does the evolution of learning still hold surprises for you? The biggest surprise for me so far has been social media: it is the biggest thing in the last ten years to hit the world of learning technology.
