How to Replace Top-Down Training with Collaborative Learning (3)

Jay Cross

Technological infrastructure for social learning. Work and learning are converging, and as this change happens, the infrastructure of the old corporate learning must go – things like traditional one-size-fit-all in-person training seminars.

LMS Innovation: Where’s the Value?

Talented Learning

Unlike those who think learning management systems (LMS) are largely irrelevant or are back office systems, I see tremendous value and potential everywhere I look. That’s because I’m focused on a much broader market opportunity for learning tech. That’s where modern learning technology is thriving, making a measurable difference and where LMS innovation is rampant. It’s less about learning and more about process.

The Smart Worker : recognises she learns to do her job as she does her job

Jane Hart

This is the 6th post in a series of postings on how L&D departments can move forward from their traditional role of creating, delivering and managing formal learning – to one that supports the wider needs of Smart Workers in the organisation.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personalization does not equal Personal

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Today, Tom mentions that "James Ryan left an extensive comment on Enterprises that love PLEs. Corporations can "personalize" a Professional Learning Environment (aka an LMS), allowing users to add their own widgets; they can allow trainers to update a users training record; they can let the user set preferences. But that does not equal a Personal Learning Environment.

Giving up control

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

In an article titled Taking the Social Media Plunge: Learning to Let Go , Andy McAfee explores the reluctance of traditional organizations to embrace social media (and informal learning). Many organizations appear scared to death of Enterprise 2.0. They’re worried about secrets slipping over Chinese walls and firewalls.

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

This continues the discussion being had around PLE/PWLEs - see More Discussion on Personal Work Learning Environments for a bit of recap. Tom Haskins has a series of interesting posts - on the topic: Enterprises that love PLE's Traits for creating PLE's at work The P in PLE First, I have to jump on the comments in these posts by Stephen Downes and Michelle Martin. A PLE that is 'inside the enterprise' is a contradiction in terms. It is clearly both learning and work.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

Jay Cross

Learning Ecosystem, Learning Ecology, and Learnscape mean the same thing as Workscape. I don’t use the word learn with executives, who inevitably think back to the awfulness of school and close their ears. In the same vein, I talk about Working Smarter instead of informal learning, social learning, and so forth. Some people denigrate informal learning but nobody’s against Working Smarter. It goes by many names, from Enterprise 2.0
