Related Terms

The recent addition of related terms (relationship factors) in eLearning Learning that show what how related terms are to a given result set provides some interesting insights. I already pointed to some of the Interesting Information that we could see as we compare what different bloggers write about. Some of these are no surprise, but others such as Yugma made me notice that version 4 is out, hence people are talking about it more than usual.

Significance

Clark Quinn

Sorry for the dearth of postings, but what with last week’s DevLearn conference and this week’s (free, online) Corporate Learning Trends (CLT) conference, and background kitchen remodel, client work, etc, I’ve been wiped out by the end of every day. Today was no different, but… Tonite I went from my son’s soccer end-of-season party to our first of the year YGuides meeting.

This is far from perfect, but it generally gives you a pretty good sense of what relates to what. Gives me an idea of who to talk to.

The Learning Circuits

The solutions organizations are looking for include blogs, wikis, and communities of practice. The CoP companies we talk with tell us that their businesses are booming (Tomoye and Mzinga being two which focus heavily in this space). We just surveyed 800+ worldwide training directors and CLOs and found that 83% feel they have a significant or urgent need to change their learning programs to deal with the learning styles of younger workers.

The future is people, not technology

Jay Cross

My last column in CLO called for the abolition of corporate training departments. That first round of e-learning largely failed for precisely this reason. People learn more efficiently at the time of need, in the context of work, from people in the know and through virtual conversation. When my colleagues and I advocate cutting back on workshops and classes in favor of building “learnscapes,” we aren’t suggesting firing the instructors. More Human Than Human.

Social Learning and LMSs Marketplace

eLearning 24-7

LMS/LCMS vendors are following one of three approaches when it comes to social learning. In any other market, the goal is to be number one, yet for whatever reason, in this market when it comes to social learning, there are a significant number of vendors, who would rather just sit on the sidelines. Let’s set the record straight on a couple of details. The age range of people using social media is 35 to 54, with a college or post graduate degree.

New skills for learning professionals

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

world, where learning and performance solutions take on a wider variety of forms and where churn happens at a much more rapid pace, what new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?&#. Here is how I described some of the roles learning professionals will need to fill in our brave new world: This is not entirely original. Ellen Wagner, Curt Bonk and I spent our 30 minutes facilitating a discussion on the topic of ‘New Roles for Learning Professionals’.
