Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

Lurking and its role in communities has been on the forefront of my mind for the past few days. It has received a lot of attention in the past from the thought leaders in the realm of learning and the role of communities in personal as well as organizational learning. I have recently taken on enterprise community facilitation and was curious to see how people are interacting on our enterprise collaboration platform.

Social Learning Has Its Place…And Informal Learning Does Too.

Dashe & Thomson

Two weeks ago Jane Hart wrote an article titled, Social Learning: to be or not to be? , in which Jane expresses her dislike of the term Social Learning (big S, big L). Jane claims that “Social Learning has come to refer exclusively to the use of social media in top-down, formal learning.” She also states that “social learning (small S, small L) happens continuously – freely and openly – in everything we do – in work, learn and study.”.

Learning with e's

I can count on the fingers of one hand the times I have learnt something significant without the help or influence of others (and counting on my fingers wasn't learnt without help, believe me). Conversation is of course often technologically mediated in this digital age. We can use text, audio or video in a number of modes and through a mind dazzling range of technologies. And there is a record - an archive - of our conversation if we want one.

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. In tandem with this trend, though, has been the increasingly familiar cry of “It’s not interactive!&#. Increasing the number of clicks required to view the content does not make it more interactive.

Motivating The Instructional Designer

The eLearning Coach

We spend a lot of time theorizing and thinking about how to motivate learners. An advocate “pleads the cause of another; defends or maintains a cause or proposal; and supports or promotes the interests of another,&# according to Webster online. Put yourself in the place of the learner to understand the value of the learning experience that’s in your hands to shape. Some resources are: The Back of the Napkin and VizThink. Seek out community.

Social Learning and LMSs Marketplace

eLearning 24-7

As social learning continues to grow, LMS/LCMS vendors are taking various approaches. While some view themselves as “social learning&# savvy, incorporating various components, others seem to see themselves as just sitting on the sidelines. LMS/LCMS vendors are following one of three approaches when it comes to social learning. Dip their feet in it – just a bit, a little here, a little there – oh and call it a full social learning platform.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions. I'm writing this post for both attendees of the session to have some notes and for people who were not at the session to hopefully get value from the discussion that happened there. As such, I'm trying to: Report and discuss the results of an introductory survey that I conduct (thanks to the suggestion via Conference Breakout Sessions ). This was more of a prompt than it really was a true survey.

Theory-informed design tips

E-Learning Provocateur

In my previous article , I proposed a Taxonomy of Learning Theories to organise a few of the myriad of theories into some semblance of order, and to assist instructional designers in using theory to inform their work. In this article, I go one step further by listing specific, practical instructional design tips that are informed by those theories. Strengthen the association with a short burst of Italian and Spanish music respectively.

The note of interest is that it is occurring with all size of vendors, albeit the charge is being led by mid size vendors. Not all of the big dog vendors have entered this space, despite it being a huge revenue opportunity.
