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.

Bottom-Line Performance

Bottom-Line Performance is excited to present “Getting Started With Social,” a webinar geared towards Learning and Development folks just getting started with social media themselves, or trying to get a team of newbies to embrace social media for learning development.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But I'm worried, because while I just got through writing about my concern in Using SharePoint that learning organizations seemed to be making the same mistake of Not Preparing Workers for Web 2.0.

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. Clearly this is a different use of PLE's than those outside the firewall, for free rangers, and for learning from everything of personal interest.

Making SCORM publications more dynamic

easygenerator

When you create and publish e-Learning content through scorm packages you always encounter some problems. In the spirit of the recently announced e- Learning piranha. Due to security settings (firewalls, procedures) it often costs a lot of time to publish (or update) the content.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

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. Helping an experienced person impacts the bottom line immediately.
