4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS

Upside Learning

Today, after the rapid evolution of the LMS – hastened by several factors, right from the inclusion of social learning tools, to an ever increasing need for usability – many things have changed, and still continue to change, in the LMS. Cloud computing is emerging as an inexpensive, quick and efficient way of delivering training through LMS. This trend will benefit not only large companies but even the smallest of the learning organizations.

6 Emerging Technologies in Education

It certainly is an exciting time to be involved with learning and technology. The Horizon Report has identified six technology disciplines that are emerging within classrooms across the United States. Virtual learning environments are one example of cloud computing. Gaming - Using game-based learning scenarios allows for experimentation, the exploration of identities, and even failure in a safe environment.

New and emerging technologies

The video below is the result of that interview, in which I answer questions such as: what emerging technology trends have the greatest potential for learning? What tips you you have for people wanting to invest in emerging technology? and should we be waiting until our learners adopt new technology or should we be leading the way as learning providers?

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personal Learning Earthquake

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Tuesday, June 05, 2007 Personal Learning Earthquake Sometimes tectonic plates shift and earthquakes form cracks in the crust. My personal view of e-Learning is from the corporate side of the aisle. So the PLE conversation has been, for me, framed in terms of the LMS and tools. How do you make an LMS into a PLE? The care of a whole person.

Everyone has one

Learning with 'e's

Everyone has one - a personal learning environment, that is. We all learn. We all use tools to help us learn. Personal learning environments or PLEs, are the collection of tools (not just online) that enable us to connect, create and share content with our own communities of interest and practice. Mine will be different to yours, because my choices and preferences about what and how I learn are different to yours. tools #ple_sou

Monday, June 11, 2007 Personalization does not equal Personal Ive been catching up this morning on all the recent PLE posts, particularly Tom Haskins recent entries.

Two papers reporting on research into the implementation of personal learning environments using social media provide a little controversy for the special issue.

I have written a lot about Personal Learning Environments in the past, especially when they were emerging as a concept, and sounded quite new. There were posts about the Anatomy of PLEs , their functionality , their role as a counterpoint to the institutional Learning Management System, and also their relationship to MOOCs and Connectivism. What is your experience of using PLEs in your own learning? Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

#LearningIs personal

Learning with 'e's

We all learn differently. Everyone of us has individual needs and personal requirements. Unfortunately, most of us are products of education systems that are based on the industrial model of education which is far removed from personalised learning. The personalised learning movement continues to grow in influence. There is also a regular international conference dedicated to personalised learning environments.

Inspired learning

Learning with e's

When I first became involved in learning technology research in the early 1980s (it was called 'educational technology' in those days) personal computers were in their infancy, and multi-media was breaking as the next 'big thing' in education. I spent my time developing software packages for 'computer assisted learning' which were text heavy but interactive, and then assessing how effective they were as tools to engage learners.

Noughties. but nice

Learning with e's

The first decade of the 21st Century was highly significant for personal learning. Such a vast array of new personal devices and web applications was introduced that have become so deeply ingrained in our everyday lives, many of us would probably feel at a loss if we were suddenly transported back to 1999. If we time jumped from then to 2009, the way we now communicate, learn, search for information, share content and consume entertainment would be unrecognisable.

Do You WANT an LMS? Does a Learner WANT an LMS?

My last post, Direction of eLearning - Emergence or Big System , received a couple of interesting comments and I wanted to add a couple of follow-up thoughts. I believe we are poised to see this happen in the world of the Learning Management Systems (LMS). I think that folks who are in the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) space have a much better idea of what will come next.

AT&T University, or TU, is the genesis for all of the organization’s learning and development programs. This team also owns AT&T’s Personal Learning Experience. The PLE is a single place where employees can go to plan, access, view, manage and track their learning,” Hull said.

Blurring the boundaries

Learning with e's

I'm increasingly conscious of the blurring of boundaries between formal and informal learning contexts. We spend much of our time in formal settings such as classrooms, training rooms and 'on the job' training, to learn the stuff that gets accredited through academic or vocational qualifications bodies. And yet, this generally accounts for only around 20 per cent of our lifelong learning time. Through the use of new and emerging technologies, this may all change.

Vygotsky's Zone of Proximal Development theory has long been revered by the education community as a model for describing what happens when we learn in social contexts. Bright young things will know that the ZPD describes the space where, with the help of a knowledgeable other person, they can extend and enhance their learning beyond that which they might achieve on their own. Then the scaffolding is brought down as they move on to the next phase of their learning.
