Speaking at the eLearning Guild's DevLearn

Will at Work Learning

I'm delighted to be attending the eLearningGuild's DevLearn conference in Las Vegas coming up in late September and early October. . . The eLearning Guild always puts on a great conference and I'm excited to learn the latest and greatest on elearning and mobile learning.

Over the past few years, I spend part of December going back through my blog to recap a bit of what some of the key things I’ve learned over the course of the year.

You can see how I do this in my posts/screencasts LinkedIn Searching for Experts and Expertise and LinkedIn Answers to Get Help.

Web 2.0 Corporate Access

Clark Quinn

I’ve been working with Steve Wexler and the eLearningGuild on the eLearning 2.0 survey. This is resulting in some pretty interesting data such as the Web 2.0 Tools Used in corporations. One of the comments I received on Network Effects - YouTube - Video Blogs and More that had a video hosted on YouTube was: We see and hear more and more about corporate content published on YouTube.

How long does it take to select an LMS?

Tony Karrer

But to give you some better answers than that the eLearningGuild has some great survey data on it. I saw a post by Bryan Chapman discussing how long it takes to select an LMS. I've known Bryan for quite a few years - more than 10. And he and I do a lot of LMS selection and implementation work. And I think we are both pretty good at it. I may even be the person he's talking about in his post as the other consultant, but I'm not quite sure.

Flash Quiz Tools

Tony Karrer

So, the eLearningGuild research again to the rescue. Update June 2008 - added one free flash quiz tool based on a question I received. This tool is listed at the bottom. A client wanted to create online quizzes that would live inside of a larger site. They didn't really need tracking of user responses, instead they wanted them to be fun. I suggested a couple of tools, but then wondered if I had given them the best list of tools.

Better Conferences

Tony Karrer

Discussion of Wifi issues at conferences, George Siemens lamenting about ED-MEDIA 2007, Jay Cross and Karl Kapp calling for an unconference in Monterey - and my suggestion to colocate with the eLearningGuild in Santa Clara/San Jose, a question of whether virtual conferences are better, and more. The post / poll / discussion around having better conferences continues to grow. There are quite a few really good comments and the trackbacks from the post are really quite good.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

found in the recent eLearningGuild survey. Over the past two years, I've worked with start-ups and corporations around the world who are grappling a bit with the impact of Web 2.0 on learning. One of the more interesting aspects of this is that I've really changed and refined what I advise both audiences in terms of their learning 2.0 strategy. But, here's what I see in terms of a CLO perspective. Seven Key Aspects of Learning 2.0 Strategy 1.
