Reflections on the Learning Technologies Conference (#LT18UK)

Patti Shank

First thing: Plan to come to the Learning Technologies conference. Learning from L&D folks from the UK, Europe, and elsewhere gives you a wider view of workplace learning around the world. Although US learning conferences often have some international presence, most of what we discuss relates to what we do in the US and Canada. The conference is a great place to meet, discuss, and learn from others. Learning Technologies is an especially good conference for this!

Virtual Worlds #lrnchat

Clark Quinn

In last night’s #lrnchat , the topic was virtual worlds (VWs). This was largely because several of the organizers had recently attended one or another of the SRI/ADL meetings on the topic, but also because one of the organizers ( @KoreenOlbrish ) is majorly active in the business of virtual worlds for learning through her company Tandem Learning. The first question to be addressed was whether virtual worlds had been over or underhyped.

8 Scary and Uncomfortable Reasons for the Growth of Virtual Worlds

Kapp Notes

While I think there are many legitimate reasons why an organization should partake in virtual immersive environments (VIEs) for learning and collaboration, there are also some "less-than-comfortable" reasons organizations are leaning in this direction. They are looking for safer alternatives to meeting face-to-face and virtual worlds is an option. Video conference technology doesn't make people look good, there are glares, bad hair days and less-than-flattering outfits.
