Learnnovators

While the title of the post specifies MOOCs, the skills and mindsets I have explored in the post are, IMHO, required by all to survive and thrive in the digital and connected world. And participating in MOOCs could well be one of the ways to inculcate and hone the skills. I have been writing about MOOCs in the context of workplace learning from different perspectives for some time now.

Six Obstacles to Building Communities in Organizations

ID Reflections

Rachel Happe begins her latest post, 10 Trends for the Future of Communities , with a comprehensive description of the various intersecting and intermingling streams and characteristics that inform communities, and I am quoting her below: Communities sit at the intersection of a number of trends; social media, digital transformation, a generational shift to prioritize purposeful work, the future of work, change management, leadership and social learning.

Social Learning Experiences: Making Better Connections

Talented Learning

So why should we celebrate technologies that enable social learning experiences?

And each of those people has the potential to teach us something new.

Workplace Learning in a World “Beyond Automation”

Learnnovators

I just finished reading an HBR article by Thomas Davenport and Julia Kirby called Beyond Automation , which is the trigger for this post. With automation, AI and robots looming over the job scene, there seems to be a constant fear of humans losing out to computers and technology. It’s akin to one of our childhood sci-fi movies finally becoming a reality – the machines are taking over. The transformation required are deep and often painful.

Learnnovators

I spent the greater part of the weekend mulling over the practice of working out loud, what makes some folks adopt the habit with ease while others struggle, and what could be some of the possible enabling factors that support working out loud.

We participate and therefore we are

ID Reflections

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

"The nature of work is changing. The changes to society will be vast" by @gapingvoid We are on the eve of 2015! Most of us do a retrospection of the year gone by, and a future-spection of the year to come. I thought I''d do the same from an L&D and workplace learning perspective. The latter talks about the impact that the changing nature of technology is having on us.

Tony Karrer

SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. I've had conversations with several of these folks in more detail and with a few others.

CLO Magazine

Key performance indicators for social and informal learning identify knowledge hubs and lead to better results. Just as social learning and technology have modernized the way learning occurs in companies today, they also have made a mark on the key performance indicators learning leaders should capture and measure.
