Some notes on Government training method trends: Online mentoring in Government shows a big increase.

eLearning 24-7

Tutoring, mentor tools. Parental portal, student portal, teacher portal (education systems). Multi-tenet, multi-portal and extended enterprise (basically it is all the same thing). Instant messaging. LMS vendors are continuing to add some very unique features in an effort to set themselves apart from the competition. These expand past the standard feature sets, which I call 90/10.

At The Water Cooler of Learning

Marcia Conner

Examples of such informal knowledge transfer include instant messaging, a spontaneous meeting on the Internet, a phone call to someone who has information you need, a live one-time-only sales meeting introducing a new product, a chat-room in real time, a chance meeting by the water cooler, a scheduled Web-based meeting with a real-time agenda, a tech walking you through a repair process, or a meeting with your assigned mentor or manager.

Building a Performance Ecosystem

CLO Magazine

Former Thomson Reuters CLO Charles Jennings highlights the 70:20:10 framework for thinking about organizational learning: 10 percent of what we need to know to do our jobs comes from courses, 20 percent from mentoring or coaching, and 70 percent is learned on the job through independent initiative. Dan Pontefract, head of learning and collaboration at Telus, has gone beyond courses to include coaching and job aids, micro-blogging, community forums, instant messaging and virtual worlds.
