The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Content providers will wag the long tail. MOOCs get a bad rap. Dismissed as prescriptive, or teacher-centric, or unsocial, or something else, it’s like a badge of honour to espouse why you dislike MOOCs.

Learning Responsibility

Tony Karrer

First, my earlier posts Corporate Learning Long Tail and Attention Crisis and Long Tail Learning - Size and Shape lay out that I believe the space in which Corporate Learning (and realistically all learning professionals) operates is changing such that unless they look at providing Long Tail Learning, they will be a continually smaller part of the overall information landscape. The big question for March 2008 is - Scope of Learning Responsibility?

How to MOOC: Designing Effective MOOC Training Programs

Your Training Edge

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are a bit of a chimera – they have the head of instructor-led training, the body of traditional e-learning, and the long tail of social media. A standard week’s activities may include video lectures and/or readings, interaction on discussion forums or other social media platforms, individual knowledge assessments, and group collaborative work.

Social media: Prevention is better than cure

It’s also the long tail of boring, low profile gripes that fester unanswered. If a particular demographic of your customer base is hooked on social media, why not provide a Twitter presence or a Facebook page or a discussion forum in which to attract, contain and manage the discourse? If, however, it does happen, then respond to it in the very same forum. My previous article, Social media: It’s not about the technology!

eLearning Startup Opportunities

Tony Karrer

I'm going to be moderating a CalTech MIT Enterprise Forum that looks at Entrepreneurial Opportunities in eLearning - basically where do we mutually see a good opportunity to create a successful eLearning Startup. Technology's Impact on Learning and Education is Greatly Underestimated We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run. It can be from anyone as long as it gets her credit from her high school.

Organizations will need you to shift a it towards Corporate Learning Long Tail and Attention Crisis and Long Tail Learning - Size and Shape. If you want to optimize total learner hours, then you make long courses aimed at lots of employees. As long as there’s a spirit of openness to alternative solutions then we can collectively help the organization move forward.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

The beauty of social networks, blogs, forums, etc. Much of that content is junk and not necessary for everyone but we keep it because it may be of use to someone (the long tail). With many companies scrambling to get up to speed with Enterprise2.0, and connect with the customer in an authentic voice, the conversation is beginning to turn too "what do we do with all of this user-generated content?" This has been part of our discussion internally and I read it here as well.

Business of Learning

Tony Karrer

I personally would bet against training as publisher of formal learning in the long-term. Xerox Learning, DDI, Forum Corporation, and hundreds of other “instructional systems companies” sprung up. Incremental changes, e.g., going from face-to-face in a classroom to virtual classroom or courseware, likely are not going to be sufficient in the long run. This is a very strange time.
