The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

Over time, content providers will supplement their core offerings with live webinars, interactive exercises, discussion forums, wikis, social networks etc. Content providers will wag the long tail. MOOCs get a bad rap. Dismissed as prescriptive, or teacher-centric, or unsocial, or something else, it’s like a badge of honour to espouse why you dislike MOOCs.

Learning Responsibility

Tony Karrer

First, my earlier posts Corporate Learning Long Tail and Attention Crisis and Long Tail Learning - Size and Shape lay out that I believe the space in which Corporate Learning (and realistically all learning professionals) operates is changing such that unless they look at providing Long Tail Learning, they will be a continually smaller part of the overall information landscape.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

You need to be able to spot new kinds of opportunities that you might not have been involved in before (see Long Tail Learning ). However, you can't afford to have any of that written down (email, wiki, etc.) That said, there is almost always some technology (Wiki, blog, RSS, etc.) Over the past two years, I've worked with start-ups and corporations around the world who are grappling a bit with the impact of Web 2.0 on learning.

I think that composition will look and act much more like Wiki Course Authoring. This is something we've wanted to do for a long time in learning, but it's always been hard. This is exactly what the implication is Learning's Long Tail and Attention Crisis , Long Tail Learning - Size and Shape , eLearning 2.0.

If you want to optimize total learner hours, then you make long courses aimed at lots of employees.
