The Corporate Blogging Book

Clive on Learning

This time it's The Corporate Blogging Book by Debbie Weil, which promises to tell you 'absolutely everything you need to know to get it right'. Well, I don't know about that, but I'm sure it will answer an awful lot of questions for anyone considering setting up a public corporate blog or getting blogging going within the firewall. Where would I be without my train journeys to London? Another trip, another book.

2012 in retrospective: top 10 posts

Challenge to Learn

In this post I will have a look at 2012 based on the top 10 post of this blog. On his corporate blog is an interview with him on SAM. I’m happy to see that this blog is growing (almost 250% up in comparison to 2011) although that is not my goal. My blog remains mainly a place for me to put done notes and thoughts, but it is nice that people appreciate this. It is the time of the year to look back and to make plans for the new year.

Blog Book Tour: Week Two

Kapp Notes

We are kicking off week two of the Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning book tour. The first week was a lot of fun sparking all types of discussions. Check out these additional posts relating to discussions about the book: Men and Women- Games and Learning On Games, Learning and Gender So What Kind of Gamer are You?

Performance Support

Clark Quinn

That’s how we use Google and corporate wikis and instant messenger. Learnscape architects have implemented miniature versions of the internet behind corporate firewalls that provide all of these things, from peer-rated FAQs to wizards, on-line help desks, and best practices repositories. He later asks: Overall, what are corporate blogs, feeds, aggregators, wikis, mash-ups, locator systems, collaboration environments, and widgets, if not performance support?

Where Have You Gone, Joe DiMaggio (and did you take instructor-led training with you, or what)?

Dashe & Thomson

My first Google search turned up this ambitious marketing assertion: Instructor-led training is considered to be the most effective method of corporate education, as it best facilitates real-time interaction, in-depth information sharing and direct response to questions. I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to use this acronym in a corporate blog, but: WTF? Maybe it really is the “most effective method of corporate education,” I thought.

Corporate Policies on Web 2.0

Tony Karrer

And most corporate guidelines out there around social media are fairly similar. They generally make each employee personally responsible, they need to abide by existing corporate rules, obey copyright and other IP rules, keep secrets and act appropriately. I think IBM's policy is a pretty good starting point: IBM Social Computing Guidelines Other company policies or discussions of guidelines I've seen around blogging, social media, web 2.0:

One can also post their Twitter feeds in courses, web pages, corporate blogs, etc. I having been using Twitter for several years now and still loving it. The only issue I have are the challenges of getting others to adopt it. For me, Twitter is a great tool in my personal life and also a fantastic workplace tool. When trying to sell use of Twitter among my coworkers and personal acquaintances I tell them of the ways I use it and anecdotes of times it has been of great benefit.

Creative employers can even go as far as to establish a dedicated corporate blog where all team members can contribute, initiate discussions and bring up common problems for group solving. An LMS software is capable of replacing conventional lectures and learning methods because it gives the corporates a centralized hub for training materials.

Making the Connection: Diversity & Profits

Everwise

Simone Strydom, senior manager of corporate communications at Clorox , observed on the corporate blog , “If you cannot answer the diversity question clearly and favorably when it is asked in the recruiting process, young people are going to choose to work elsewhere.”. Having a robust diversity & inclusion (D&I) program at your company is no longer a nice to have.

Corporations are now boring through traditional, more intrinsic categorizations (e.g, As Clorox observed on its corporate blog , “If you cannot answer the diversity question clearly and favorably when it is asked in the recruiting process, young people are going to choose to work elsewhere.”.

THIS is What Social Learning Looks Like

bozarthzone

Turns out the #blogchat group decided to dedicate some of their Sunday nights to offering critiques of one another's blogs. Participants wanting feedback submitted their blogs for consideration; 4 were chosen this time with a promise that others would be considered soon. Those who offered their blogs up for review got a good deal of feedback useful particularly for them, but also for others in the group. Something really interesting happened on Twitter last night.

eLearning Topics

Tony Karrer

For example, when I view my blog's content through the eLearning Learning lens , it shows me that relative to other sources of content in the system, I tend to talk about: eLearning 2.0 (130) I often will use this technique when I run into a new company to see if anyone is blogging about it and generally what is associated with it. I've done a few posts in the past that take a look at the topics that are Hot Topics in Training.

A portfolio of learning assets was created, which included ‘above the line’ learning interventions (instructor-led classroom and online classroom) as well as ‘below the line’ (e-learning, email and phone support, with corporate social networking groups). Perhaps the most used feature of the system is the discussion forum, although there is a top-down element as well through corporate blogs, news and videos.

The participants were Learning Professionals from a cross section of Corporations, Academia, Military, Government (IRS was well represented and a little scary) and Non-profits.
