eLearning 2.0 - An Immediate, Important Shift

Tony Karrer

I just finished reading a blog post on Read/Write Web - eLearning 2.0 - All You Need to Know. I'm a big believer in eLearning 2.0 and it's interesting to R/WW's take on eLearning 2.0. As you read through the post, you really don't get any sense for what eLearning 2.0 They talk about things like Nuuvo (more or less an LMS), Google Apps (online applications) as examples of eLearning 2.0 At the end of the day, eLearning 2.0

Personal Learning Tools and Technologies

Tony Karrer

Jane Hart has done a great job collecting individual answers to what learning tools and technologies that people use. At the same time, I agree with his call for sharing on these things and "learning over the shoulder" of others. And I also sympathize with the "no its personal" beat down he took.

But, this discussion is not limited to folks in the learning / eLearning world. In prior posts ( Enterprise 2.0 - What's the PU? & Web 2.0 But, It's first and foremost about personal value.

Improving Personal Learning - A Continuing Challenge for Learning Professionals

Tony Karrer

The most important skills of a knowledge worker are learning skills. I would also suggest that learning skills are dramatically shifting over the past few years and learning professionals are not staying ahead of these shifts. If you take a look at what is being discussed in learning circles, I would claim that We Are Approaching Learning from the Wrong Direction. We need to focus on helping individuals be empowered and competent in their own learning.

Social Media And Learning

She provides compelling reasons to implement a social and collaborative environment as part of workplace learning.

Training Specialist

Saw a post by Matthew Franz - where he tells us - I don't get e-learning 2.0 - and it made me wonder if Franz is a training specialist - who's not looking at more than training as a model for learning. as "e-learning." are also tools, but think of the absurdity of making a big deal of Excel as an "e-learning 1.0 Yes, everything you do should be about learning and creating knowledge, but this is different from Learning with a Big-L and little-l learning.

What did I learn about learning in 2008?

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuit’s Blog Big Question for December is “What did you learn about learning in 2008?&# It’s good to reflect, and using the end of the calendar year is a traditional time. I saw several recurrent threads, but the strongest one is on learning to learn. Which segues nicely into my second learning, which was about social learning. So, my personal learning was getting more deeply into the whole elearning 2.0

Blogging - I'm Pushing Harder Now

Tony Karrer

For people reading my blog for a while, if you had been at my recent ASTD presentation on eLearning 2.0 - you would have heard a much stronger appeal for learning professionals to blog as compared to a gentler push that I was giving last fall. When I asked The Big Question for October: Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging? and then posted some of my thoughts in Should All Learning Professionals be Blogging? The difference is in the learning experience.

Trends in Learning

Tony Karrer

Someone was just asking me about the big trends in learning and the implications of those trends on corporate learning and development. So, here's a bit of a compilation of some of the things I've been talking about in my blog which points to some of the major trends in learning. And the risk is pretty severe as described in the Business of Learning. Training Method Trends suggests that social learning tools are beginning to take off. And surveys such as Web 2.0

Horizontal technologies for learning. In the eLearning sector many vendors have created eLearning solutions primarily for educational institutions.

Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008

Tony Karrer

The Big Question this month are Predictions for Learning in 2008. Here are my predictions, but realistically they are more about trends in eLearning and eLearning Software. Prediction #1 => eLearning 2.0 - Increasing Pressure It's safe to predict that you'll be hearing more and more about eLearning 2.0 There will be increasing pressure on each of us to understand eLearning 2.0 This will increase adoption of Web 2.0

Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage

Tony Karrer

I have a similar feeling about the limited value of these publications for me and it's something that I mention at most presentations I ever do on eLearning 2.0. In other words, my scanning behavior has radically changed because of blogs (see Time Spent on Blogging , Personal Learning Strategies ). The conference sessions I present on eLearning 2.0 Learning and Networking With A Blog (T+D article) ) have to be somewhat of an overview.

Facebook Apprenticeship

Clark Quinn

Jay connects this to Cognitive Apprenticeship (my favorite model of learning), where the boss is modeling his thinking processes, and the employee can use that model as a guide to performance. That sort of open process can be quick, informative, and how Web 2.0 might really transform the ways people work, making personal learning a process of looking in the window of other’s working, and vice versa.Â

eLearning Topics

Tony Karrer

Back in 2007, I pointed out various aspects of what I was seeing: strategy/strategic and performance are back as topics after dropping way down in 2006 surprisingly trainer is also back, you would think in the age of eLearning 2.0 And now, because of eLearning Learning , I have a much better way to track these things over a much more interesting content sets. For example, we see terms now at the top like Learning Management System , AICC , SCORM.

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools. What is it about people in corporate learning that they feel the need to perpetuate the attitude of servitude it seems all learners must adopt. Stephen's very much correct about a PLE being for the person.

Learning Design in a Nut Shell

Tony Karrer

I've recently updated my mental model of how I go about Learning Design, so I thought I'd share. In fact, the Art of Learning Design is dealing with the variability of the myriad of performance needs, considerations and possible delivery models and tools; working through the combinations; to arrive at a delivery pattern that will be effective. However, all of this assumes that I'm in the Top-Down, Intentional mode (see eLearning 2.0: Keywords: eLearning Trends
