TalentLMS

Web based learning has opened up a lot of doors to anyone who wants to learn. With the available tech today, it can be argued that if ever you want to learn anything, you just need a device, an internet connection, and a must-do attitude. Moreover, web based training has broken down both geographical and physical limitations and has made learning possible across different time zones. Web Based Training Advantages and Disadvantages.

How to Replace Top-Down Training with Collaborative Learning (3)

Jay Cross

Work and learning are converging, and as this change happens, the infrastructure of the old corporate learning must go – things like traditional one-size-fit-all in-person training seminars. Conventions like ASCII, programming languages, Internet protocol, and encryption were developed for corporate mainframe computers and only later adopted for personal computers. Multiple access options, like a bank that offers access by ATM, the Web, phone, or human tellers.

To optimize your learning, optimize your networks

Jay Cross

The Internet Time Alliance has been brainstorming models of learning networks. Harold recently posted this model: Workers collaborate in Project Teams to get the job done. The work team is a different sort of animal because we have a job to do. Some teams are self-organizing networks; others are the tail end of command-and-control. On the wide-open web , my learning often relies on the kindness of strangers.

Hands-on learning (which can also be called as on-the-job-training), exposes the learner to real-life work scenarios. Employee training techniques like these make sure that learning is not limited to inside the classroom, but is also demonstrated (and assimilated) during work itself. Experiential learning applies the theories discussed and the competencies developed in the classroom to the actual work environment.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

Instead of satisfying art lovers, corporate curation saves enormous amounts of time, keeps teams on the same page, and equips everyone with the latest insights. Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.” I scoured the web and paid particular attention to curation champions like Robin Good and Howard Rheingold.

The idea that content on the web is "free" is mistaken: the hidden cost may be the demise of old media and entire art forms on which the free content depends. Another web idea dismantled by Keen is the concept of the "long tail" - the slow but gradual accumulation of sales by niche products such as books that could never have commanded shelf space in shops but can wait for buyers to find them on Amazon.

Global digital tribe

Learning with 'e's

Tribal identity in the age of the Web transcends ethnicity, traditional cultural expectations and geography (Wheeler, 2009). Post-industrial society saw the emergence of personal computers, the Web and a global communication network of mobile phones. Internet memes - units of digital cultural knowledge - are very easily propagated and amplified across social media platforms. The most familiar social space, particularly for distributed work teams, is the social network.

By combining the power of the human brain with technology in a way that facilitates work, collaboration and communication, leaders can turn learning into multifaceted performance support. Things are moving faster, and organizations have to be more nimble, responding to changes in their audiences, competitors and the context of work. The Performance Ecosystem Optimizing performance is about matching technology support to the ways employees naturally work.
