LearnTrends: Microlearning

Experiencing eLearning

Missed the beginning due to a phone call, but glad to actually hear Janet’s voice after all this time interacting through blogs, Facebook, etc. Specifically focusing on OTJ skills & knowledge. From a 2008 microlearning conference “There is a need and pressure to learn continually due to rapid change in society and the economy…Knowledge gaps are widening.&#. Focused on knowledge workers–people who use digital info in their jobs.

Get Employee Onboarding Right


The onboarding practices of the past – completing checklists of tasks, filling out forms, and even watching old grainy compliance tapes – may no longer cut it, particularly in industries like knowledge work, where talent (and therefore turnover) is very expensive.

Long Live?

I believe that most of the voices you will see responding to the big question predict (for a variety of reasons) that time and expenditure on instructor-led classroom workplace learning will be lower in the future (again almost no one said dead, but many predicted lower). And you cannot Separate Knowledge Work from Learning. I had the opportunity to work with Stedman Graham and one of his favorite lines that I will paraphrase: We are all equal in this world.

2008 in retrospect

Jay Cross

Next year, I intend to start making the world a better place, and that’s going to take more oomph, focus, and work with others. Everyone has a voice. Knowledge workers have replaced factory workers. Learnscapes : where informal learning and knowledge work converge. Learning is the process of figuring out how the world works. It’s a dog’s breakfast of acquiring skills, information, knowledge, savoir faire, and more.
