Cammy Beans Learning Visions: e-Learning Content & Version Control

Learning Visions

Wednesday, August 01, 2007 e-Learning Content & Version Control Earlier this week, Janet Clarey wrote about the " Preservation of e-Learning Content." After reading Janets post, I talked with our CTO about some ways that we could build a little bit of "version control" into our Flash Course Development Templates. More likely, if they dont have version control tools, its because they havent even thought about it. I suppose most LMS/LCMS keep track of versions on some levels.

Learning Visions

Monday, July 13, 2009 Kineo Product Knowledge E-Learning Webinar Kineo will be holding a free webinar on creating effective product knowledge e-learning on July 16th, 2009. For example there have been over 60 new versions of the Blackberry since its launch in 2002, that’s one every 5 weeks. Keeping costs down: Given the pace of change, product knowledge e-learning has got to be cost effective, otherwise the maintenance costs will be prohibitive.

“Good Enough” in Learning and Development

It stands to reason that our efforts should focus on solutions that are faster to market and target more the 90% solution than the 99% version. This should mean a substantially improved ability to deliver the most effective blend of performance improvement solutions for all of our customers.

E-Learning 101: Straightforward Answers to Fundamental Questions

Common with higher education institutions, a MOOC has an instructor, includes beginning and end dates over a series of weeks, and all participants start together and go through the learning experience together. Common MOOC platforms include: Coursera. What is Creative Commons?

How will we learn tomorrow?

Learning with e's

The ways education, learning and development will harness these tools over the next few years will establish for some time how deeply they will reach into organisations, and how effectively we will develop our learning methods for some years to come. I had a very interesting year in 2013.

Intervention learning

Digital habitus

Learning with e's

What are the effects of our fearsome fascination with mobile phones, our predilection to video games, our inexorable gravitation toward social media? In fact, it is possible that the digital versions of ourselves that exist online are in fact original and have never previously existed.

When will my (3D) prints appear?

Learning with e's

Architects, designers, food technologists and also the military, are discovering the benefits of creating 3D versions of reality. When 3D printer technology eventually attains the speed of the Star Trek replicator, where objects appear instantly, will this effect be lost?

#LearningIs creative

Learning with e's

Learning can certainly be creative, if the conditions are right. Firstly, creative learning requires active engagement. Teaching can be more effective when questions are posed or challenges are presented, than when content is delivered or knowledge imparted.

Making memories

Learning with e's

At the same time, encouraging students to combine their knowledge with actions can have the effect of reinforcing learning in both procedural and declarative memory. NB: This is a simplified version of a complex theory.

or not to lecture

Learning with e's

In my previous post I wrote that even though research shows lectures to be less than effective in helping students to learn, they still persist in higher education. Problem based learning has been shown to be effective in encouraging students to engage at a high level with learning.

The big switch

Learning with e's

If you subscribe to a kind of pedagogy where you believe that facilitating learning is more effective than direct instruction, you will probably recognise the potential. This is a version of teaching, and we all learn by teaching.

The colours of the pens on earlier versions were not as important as the place you located them. Anyone who has used previous versions of interactive whiteboards will know that in many cases, only one person can use the touch surface at a time.


Where AR we now?

The opportunities to use such applications in education are fairly obvious, but not everyone has access to the technology, and it can be quite difficult to use effectively if you are able to gain access. This is part 6 in a series of posts on the future of learning and technology.

What is the most common e-learning development software? In October 2013, an eLearning Guild report showed the most common authoring tools were Adobe Captivate, TechSmith Camtasia, Articulate Storyline, Articulate Studio, and Trivantis Lectora, and those tools are still leaders in this market.

Resistance is futile

Colleagues resisted the presence of computers, because they were worried about the potential effects, and some also questioned their validity. I had to ensure that the computers were deployed appropriately and in a manner that would demonstrate their effectiveness.

Memories are made of this

With his colleagues he proposed a version of Short Term Memory (STM) called working memory (WM). Clearly, my commentary here is just a simplified version of the two models. We also know that WM has a limited capacity, and can be overloaded without enough space to code effectively.

What if they have so much creativity inside them screaming to get out, it just has to be unleashed somewhere, and the desk is the closest available space? Wouldn't it be wonderful if children could draw anywhere and express their creativity on any surface?

The ivory towers are crumbling

In effect it finds ways to enable readers to adapt and otherwise modify existing works without infringing copyright law. Another threat is Creative Commons which has an entire range of licencing agreements which variously enable users to modify, extend and share versions of the original work.

The reason for this is that she doesn''t focus too much on transient effects such as what technology we use, she is more interested in pursuing the questions around human identity and how it can be influenced by technology.

Manufactured education

The factory model of education persists, because in the mind of its proponents, it is still the most efficient, cost effective way to train the workforce of the future. Why is there an assumption that the most important thing kids have in common is their date of manufacture?"
