Returning to the office, with purpose: Let’s make life delicious

CLO Magazine

I looked around to determine what to do about that and smiled as I saw, on our walls, our company purpose: “ Let’s Make Life Delicious ,” reminding me of our collective call to action, our reason to exist — reminding each of us why the work we do each day matters. Let’s make life delicious.

Delicious, Take Two

eLearning Cyclops

I signed up for Delicious social bookmarking quite a while ago, but it just didn't take for me. Either way, I set-up Delicious and just never really used it beyond the first few days. Let's hope my new job does not block Delicious. It's motivating to see someone tag my pages Finding new and interesting sites by viewing other people's bookmarks Easy access from any computer, if Delicious is not blocked by the "man" at work. And here is my Delicious tag cloud.

Delicious Upgrade

Tony Karrer

And today, I just saw - Delicious Preview - Next Gen Search For Yahoo? and Delicious 2.0. Yesterday, at my presentation Introduction to eLearning 2.0 - ASTD OC , I mentioned that Yahoo MyWeb had a few features that was sorely missing. And that had made me previously conclude: Yahoo MyWeb better than, rollyo, for Personal / Group Learning However, I told everyone that

Delicious Upgrade Only Skin Deep

I personally think delicious is a great tool and I often describe it's use in presentations and workshops. My claim back then was the Yahoo MyWeb has some features that made it better for a lot of corporate users, and while I hate to argue for its use, the fact that two years later after Yahoo acquired (delicious), they've not addressed these issues is a surprise. It recently went through an upgrade that improved the look and performance.

Diigo or Delicious for Beginners?

Experiencing eLearning

One question came up earlier in the discussion that I want to explore a little deeper: if you’re introducing social bookmarking to complete beginniners, would Diigo or Delicious be a better choice?In Delicious is so simple and obviously useful. I’m still inclined to start with delicious and save Diigo for my more advanced users (of which I have very few). You could start with delicious and then move to Diigo later if you want more power.

In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going. As many have noted, it’s about moving from a notion of being a builder, handcrafting (or mass-producing) solutions, to being a facilitator, nurturing the community to develop it’s own capabilities. Jay Cross talks about the learnscape , while I term it the performance ecosystem.

For the third time I was going through all my resources- files and bookmarks to find online icebreakers. I thought I'd do myself (and you) a favour by listing the most interesting ones. 10 online icebreakers (the picture relates to number 10!): Two Lies and A Truth. Ask participants to list three interesting things about themselves. (I I own two iguanas; I once shook hands with Tom Cruise; and I love to waterski.) Two must be lies and one must be true.

I Came, I Saw, I Learned.: eLearning: What's in a Name?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by AJ George When it comes to learning over the internet, there's been a lot of debate in the industry over the name "eLearning." " People can't decide if they should use e-Learning, eLearning, virtual classes or online classes. Others are wondering if they should use the "e" in eLearning at all. There are plenty of opinions when it comes to the debate. However, opinions are like cell phones, and these days, everybody's got one.

19 Tips for Effective Online Conferences

I was recently asked me about my recommendations for conducting effective online conferences (virtual conference). They had attended the LearnTrends free online conference. This conference has been run for a few years now and is tentatively scheduled for November 15-17 this year. This is my attempt to collect some of what we’ve learned over the years doing those conferences.

Matthew 5:13 (New Testament) The Delicious social bookmarking site used to be one of my favourite social media tools. When Yahoo bought Delicious back in 2005 for an estimated $18 million, we all expected great things, and we got them. A lot of that functionality has changed since Delicious has been sold on to AVOS (known as founders of YouTube) for a reported $5 million. This post from Pulp Tech is particularly critical of the new Delicious.

Tips for facilitators in Ning

I've been exploring Ning a little further than I did and compared it to other forums like socialgo, collectivex and is open source, has a lot of similar functionalities to ning (and more- you can upload files easily) and is also without advertisements (for free!). The advantage of ning is that it is slightly more attractive in look and feel. Besides it is getting very popular.

Digital literacy 6: Organising and sharing content

Learning with e's

Using a web service such as Delicious for example, will allow you not only to make your content more visible to those who are searching using key words, but it will also reveal to you (and to the other users) exactly who else may be interested in the same, or similar content. The blue box at the end of each hyperlink displayed in my own Delicious account has a number - the number of other people who have bookmarked the same link.

Web feats 1: Social bookmarking

Learning with e's

I first began to use Delicious about two years ago when I stumbled upon it while digging around for some way to store and organise my best internet 'finds'. Not everyone likes it, but Delicious is my favourite bookmarking tool because not only does it store away all of my favourite websites (it asks for the URL, a title and some key words), it also has a neat social dimension to it - and it's a lot less messy on the screen than most of the others too.

What does a facilitator of an online learning trajectory do?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I'm helping different people to facilitate online trajectories. It's always funny to see that people who are experienced facilitators face-to-face are so scared for an online process. And then suddenly they see they can use the same basic facilitation skills online. In the beginning, most are disappointed by the number of responses to messages. Somehow online, participation seems lower because the people who are reading with attention are not visible.

Build a powerful PLN

Another way to find people who have a similar interest to you is to subscribe to a social bookmarking tool such as Diigo or Delicious. By searching and then saving useful website addresses to Diigo or Delicious, you will automatically be presented with links to other people who have also found the site interesting. If not, bookmark it on Delicious or Diigo for later use. delicious hashtags social media Twitter DiigoIf you are a professional, you should have a PLN.

ASTD's Big Question for December 2008: New Learning

Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is What did you learn about learning in 2008? I learn so much all the time from students, clients and colleagues, it is hard to narrow it down to just two or three things, but I'll try. Here are a few of the lessons I have learned. Mostly about finding a good "model" for mobile learning course design, how others tend to view immersive learning environments and how Social Media is taking off in the least likely places.

Gossip, Collaboration, and Performance in Distributed Teams

Skilful Minds

What do you think the typical manager might say if you told them their employees don't gossip and engage one another in non-work related tasks enough? Most managers have heard of the watercooler effect without ever having the meaning of the concept sink in to their understanding of how it relates to performance and collaboration. A couple of studies released this summer dealing with performance and collaboration in teams merit consideration.

Mobile learning – keep taking the tablets

Lars is Learning

There is growing excitement with a new class of mobile device hitting the streets over the next few months – the electronic tablet. Most of the buzz is about Apple coming out with what’s dubbed the “iTablet” that essentially would be a larger screened iPhone or iPod Touch. Some enterprising people have mocked up images of what it could look like: But several other vendors are beating Apple

Social Learning and Exception Handling

Skilful Minds

We know that most learning in the workplace is informal. Most observers put it at around 80%. Recently, John Hagel and John Seeley Brown contended that "as much as two-thirds of headcount time in major enterprise functions like marketing, manufacturing and supply chain management is spent on exception handling."

Here’s Where the E-Learning Community Provides Practical Value

Rapid eLearning

Many of you are either working alone or on very small teams with limited resources. With some creativity, you can do quite a bit. In fact, many of my tips and tricks came from working in a similar situation. It’s amazing what can be done do with a computer and a little duct tape. With that said, working solo has some drawbacks. One of the biggest is not having peers (or a more experienced person) who can help you brainstorm and think through the process of building a course.
