Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Attending an ISTE Meeting in SL

Kapp Notes

The meeting was, at times, chaotic with many people chatting and, I noticed, Second Life doesn't really have any classroom management features, it is hard to tell who raised their hand first and a little difficult to avoid one person talking over another.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Clark Quinn

I think we'll feverishly use three of them possibly four, but my office manager thinks I am nuts. In addition to the four they list, I've personally had experience with GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, Elluminate, Centra and Interwise. Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome."

This announcement comes on the heels of Saba acquiring Centra. Now this deal makes more sense as Saba continues evolve beyond its Learning Management Software (LMS) roots (Saba recently bought THINQ) by rounding out its services offering. Plus Saba + Centra creates a US$100M revenue company which is not too shabby! Wow, consolidation is running rampart in the eLearning space as everyone continues to merge or acquire.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. 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.

Here are the slides from an online session I did yesterday on Multi-Generational Learning in the Workplace. Great questions, great crowd, no big tech issues.
