Chatting

Clark Quinn

For example, Meebo is more dedicated to chat, but there’s more overhead to get hooked up (it connects all IM channels, but you’d have to be on IM). The topics ranged from organizational barriers to Twitter (hence the mention of Yammer as a solution maybe more appropriate for a company with more than a few people, as it has some knowledge management capabilities as well), to the value (or not) of Twitter.

Micro-Learning as a Workplace Learning Strategy

Learnnovators

This free-flowing nature of work requires rapid exchange of information and sharing of knowledge in byte-sized chunks that are easy to assimilate. This instantaneous kind of information and knowledge exchange, peer support, and sharing of tacit knowledge happen in short bursts. A deluge of content coupled with an ever decreasing shelf-life of knowledge is forcing people to access a huge mass of information just to keep on top of things.

Home > Social Learning > Five Myths of Social Learning Five Myths of Social Learning December 3rd, 2009 Goto comments Leave a comment There is no question that the rise of social networks is creating a profound shift in the way training departments are delivering knowledge to their employees, partners, and customers.

The Learning Circuits

The "largeness" of that number (like the dot-coms referring to the largeness of the Internet) does not a case make, as plenty of knowledge management vendors can attest. And much more specifically, unless you work at Google or an IM vendor, what is your "value add" to it First, more importantly, if anyone has a comment on research regarding the effectiveness of informal learning, please attach it to Peter Isackson's comment below.

Learning with e's

So, I vill here my German practice: 'Der gipfel des Berges funkelt im Abendsonenschein'. There are sessions on the semantic web, knowledge management, adaptive and intuitive learning environments (work it out for yourself), e-portfolios, collaborative learning, mobile learning environments and applications, and they've thrown in the kitchen sink for good measure. I'm sitting here watching as the sun sets over the Alps, in beautiful Villach, Austria.

The 'learner' fallacy - delusions of influence in L&D

Learning Rocks

You might come up such designations as: dedicated users removing themselves from distractions multi-tasking users enlivening e-learning screentime with IM and email technophobe users* struggling to read on-screen and hating having to use the infernal machine they'd rather not go near impatient users* skipping as much as possible until they have a WIIFM moment. The use of knowledge Knowledge=power, so the saying goes, and the benefit of recasting our audience as users goes on.

Summary of Original Snake Oil Post

The Learning Circuits

· Knowledge Management does not work. Contextual Collaboration (IM, chat, webconferencing, expertise mining or presence awareness) 40-50% of knowledge needed is on the heads of other workers. Workflow Learning - business process management systems were selling like hotcakes while courseware products were suffering from lower demand and cheaper outsourcing offering. Knowledge Management - Knowledge cannot be housed in hardware or software and then moved about.
