Why an LMS Needs Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Functionality

TOPYX LMS

As stated on Training Industry’s website , ‘(With LTI), training organizations can incorporate tools developed outside their own communities, leveraging higher functionality without the related labor and cost.

Your Training Edge

That is where they have spent most of their time, on their phones using IM’s and SMS and on their PC’s & laptops (browsing, blogging, YouTubing, Facebook, and Twitter etc.). Apart from that, employers are using social media sites to background check and get references for employees.

italki - Social Network for Language Learning

Tony Karrer

italki is an interesting website in the language learning space - which seems to be very busy these days. People find each other using the site and then connect via chat, IM, voice/Skype, etc. They provide the ability to connect with other learners who are trying to learn a language. There are other resources, but the use of a social network to find people who can help each other learn the language is a great idea.

2017 eLearning Predictions: Updated Hype Curve

Web Courseworks

IMS Caliper: Caliper is the latest standard from IMS. To understand the difference between the two standards, it’s important to note that IMS and Caliper are driven by higher ed and thus of particular interest to the Educause crowd. IMS’s best known standard, LTI, allows textbook companies to package online course content and ship it with their textbooks, regardless of the implementing university’s LMS.

Reminiscing over 2018 as we step into 2019

Rustici Software

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

The Ultimate Guide: What is Screencasting and Why Use it?

TechSmith Camtasia

Think of your apps, websites, IMs, emails, and everything that makes up your digital world. A product demo video is a powerful tool that keeps eyeballs on your website and interested in your product. A screencast is a digital video recording of your computer screen and usually includes audio narration.

Chatting

Clark Quinn

However, I went to TweetChat , a website that provides an interface just for such chats, because it only follows your hashtag, and automatically puts it in your tweets. 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). Last night we held the first #lrnchat , a Twitter learning chat.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: My Facebook has Tipped

Learning Visions

Im not talking about the quantity of my friends, but rather the breadth and depth. Im not sure if there was a specific tipping point for me, but I was certainly amused when one of my friends informed me that Im personally responsible for making her waste more time on Facebook than she ever thought possible. Some of it may be peer-group / cohort stuff, as in a great deal of professional success coming prior to the explosion of personal websites, blogs, etc.
