I think it’s fair to say that some companies still have a phobia about social media.

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.

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. On the other hand, courses for soft skills, such as conflict management, communication, and leadership, may take more advantage of social learning tools, incorporating role playing and collaborative assignments.

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?"

Business of Learning

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. Sure we know about software and services that go along with things like: Informal Learning Social Learning Toolkits Resource sites Books 24x7, Safari But will people really pay for these things? This is a very strange time.
