Time to Rethink Measurement for Digital Learning

CLO Magazine

Digital learning is revolutionizing the corporate learning environment by making a vast amount of content available to learners. Some of this content can be accessed through internal learning management systems but the fastest growth is likely to come from content available outside the organization’s firewalls and systems. No revolution was required in measurement or reporting of those measures for e-learning.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But I'm worried, because while I just got through writing about my concern in Using SharePoint that learning organizations seemed to be making the same mistake of Not Preparing Workers for Web 2.0.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

Jay Cross

Learning Ecosystem, Learning Ecology, and Learnscape mean the same thing as Workscape. I don’t use the word learn with executives, who inevitably think back to the awfulness of school and close their ears. In the same vein, I talk about Working Smarter instead of informal learning, social learning, and so forth. Some people denigrate informal learning but nobody’s against Working Smarter.

Search and You Shall Find

CLO Magazine

Ask 100 people about the first step they take when they need to learn something and you will get amazingly consistent responses: I search Google; I search Baidu (in China); I search Bing; and I search our intranet. In the past five years search has become the default and perhaps most critical step in an individual’s learning style, and with the rise of Internet access to mobile devices, search has grown exponentially.

Jay Cross
