Four Reasons you need structure for informal learning

Xyleme

Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc. But as we all know, learning is evolving. Today, we keep hearing that formal presentations are out, that it’s all about informal learning, social learning and user-generated content. For this event, I decided to dispose of the safety net that had served me so well in the past and host a completely informal webinar whose content was completely driven by attendee questions. That is social learning at its best.

Instructional Design: Something Old, Something New

Allison Rossett

A few years ago, Jim Marshall and I surveyed workplace learning professionals about elearning. Although we set out to learn about the contours of the elearning terrain, our project revealed much about instructional design practice today. Were learning professionals relying on webinars, on podcasts, on mobile learning? Tutorials, scenario-based learning, practice and feedback, and problem-solving strategies were identified as typical. Many call it informal.

Reflections on DevLearn 2010

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

The new face of learning was made of our faces. I was delighted to find my Belgian friend Inge de Waart at the Mobile Learning Camp. Wednesday ended with a wonderful dinner for those of us who’ve recorded podcasts for Xyleme. They’re into talent management, social learning, or anything besides what they really do. Learning is becoming DIY (do-it-yourself) by the moment. The social learning revolution is here.

LMS vs. LCMS

Xyleme

The Learning and Development industry, like any other, has been inundated with new technologies and tools for learning. Buzz words in the industry include e-learning, mobile learning, cloud delivery, bite-sized learning, informal learning, learning record store, and single-source content development. Another important learning tool that some may not be familiar with is a Learning Content Management System (LCMS). Xyleme.

LMS vs. LCMS

While sometimes thought to be interchangeable terms, LMS (Learning Management System) and LCMS (Learning Content Management System) platforms share a few functionalities, but couldn’t be more different. A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that allows a company, school, or organization to administer, document, track, and report on the delivery of educational courses and training programs.

Changing Role of the LMS

Xyleme

It seems that, for years, people have been writing obituaries for the corporate Learning Management System (LMS). They have little to do with informal learning. The title says it all: Learning Management System. As most of us realise, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the real learning that is taking place inside organisations. It’s important, but the mismatch of investment between formal and informal learning often seems unjustifiable.

5 Disruptive Trends That Will Alter Your Mobile Strategy

Xyleme

I attended a webinar two week’s ago featuring Stacey Harris of Brandon Hall Group and Mark Hellinger of Xyleme. The topic of conversation was this idea of going mobile with your learning; a hot topic in the learning space no doubt. They touched on the concept that learning expectations have shifted with all of the new technology, which has caused change among those who are initially developing the content. This ties specifically into the third learning shift.
