We Need a Wiki in a Wiki

eLearning Blender

It's obvious that a Wiki would be a great help in my organization. A few years ago we started using SharePoint and now we are SharePoint junkies. The problem is that our SharePoint intranet has grown so immensely that it is now difficult to find information you need in a pinch. The search features are weak and there is now so much information available that we need a quicker way to get an answer in a pinch.

Corporate Learning Laggards?

Tony Karrer

Last week I moderated a Technology Council event on Web 2.0 What's interesting in eLearning is that it used to be that corporations were way out in front of what was happening in the consumer space and even farther ahead of what I saw in academia. We've also stepped back as we look at doing things more quickly at lower cost to keep up with the pace of change. And now as things begin to transition to eLearning 2.0

Tacit vs. Explicit Knowledge - Decisions Learning Professionals Make Everyday

Tony Karrer

Second, since much of the choice between eLearning 1.0 and eLearning 2.0 comes down to the cost of us directly working to make information explicit as compared to providing tools that allow the learners to make it explicit (or to create their own tacit knowledge). Thus, the authors suggestion that knowledge runs from: knowledge-that-is-extremely-costly-to-articulate and knowledge-that-isn't-at-all as defining the two ends of a continuum.

Training Design

Tony Karrer

Virtual classroom, web-based training (WBT), rapidly created eLearning, lots of online reference tools such as help, cheat sheets, online manuals. In many cases, this makes our final delivery pattern much more complex, but it greatly reduces the time required upfront by learners and allows us to get them information much more just-in-time and with more appropriate costs. My sense is that we may need a new picture because of eLearning 2.0.

What is Rapid eLearning?

Tony Karrer

Based on my recent posts about the Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids , I was asked if this isn't just "Rapid eLearning" - a term that simultaneously is good and bad. In it Rick Nigol talks about the same kinds of drivers and he discusses approaches to rapid eLearning in terms of tools, people and process.

I was hoping to get lucky and find some miracle idea or resource that will make it easy for me to implement eLearning at a minimal cost.

Better Conferences - Response Needed

Tony Karrer

Here's my current thinking: Have a morning of the first day session aimed at a particular audience segment, e.g., managers of corporate eLearning, facilitated by me and someone else that will help them identify their key issues, big questions and also identify topics they would want to discuss with others, what they would be willing to present as a case study to be discussed, or a topic where they might want to lead a discussion. I'm pretty sure it's not just me.
