But as we all know, learning is evolving. Today, we keep hearing that formal presentations are out, that it’s all about informal learning, social learning and user-generated content. I think a series of presentation/discussions would be more effective. Discussions?

The big blindspot

Clark Quinn

I was talking with a colleague over lunch the other day about her company, platform, and organizational learning issues. In orgs, there’s a real tendency to bucket any discussion of learning into ‘training’, and dismiss it.

ID Reflections

MOOCs have taken the world of higher ed and corporate learning by the proverbial storm.

Most organizations (hopefully) have accepted that learning is crucial to their strategy for growth and performance, and if done right, has a direct impact on the bottom line.

Moving To eLearning

Our customers account for a number of factors before taking the plunge into e-Learning. I was trying to put together some of the key change factors leading organizations to adopt e-learning stand-alone and as a part of the training blend. Organizational Culture/Demographics. Management Support. Some of these change factors translate to simply ‘business needs’ which fuel the need for e-learning in the business. E-Learning Readiness. Management Support.
