Do you know your E-learning Buckets?

Integrated Learnings

In the past I've used systems like wikis, Lotus Notes, and SharePoint to serve as knowledge management systems. By Jonathan Shoaf. I've discovered recently I don't like the term e-learning. This is because I recently had to go through the process of understanding what salary you pay someone who is an e-learning developer. It turns out that it varies dramatically depending on who you ask. This is because everyone has a different idea of what e-learning is and what it takes to develop it.

Lotus 1-2-3, WordPerfect, Harvard Graphics were popular pieces of software. Think back to 1991. Remember where you were? What were you doing? What did your hair look like (I was rocking some fantastic 90's hair! Hot rollers and hair spray, baby! )? Remember what tech was like back in 1991? 6 pound 'laptops'. Apple introduced the PowerBook laptop. Remember Compuserve and BBS ? Microsoft Releases MS Dos 5.0 and Windows 3.1.

How To Quickly Create Documentation Without Compromising Quality (Customer Story)

TechSmith Camtasia

According to Vanessa, “Snagit sits right within the company’s Lotus Notes client environment, so when we include images in our email, it goes directly within the email.”. At a glance. DFCU Financial employees needed to capture their screens as part of a company-wide push for process documentation. Employees found free operating system tools cumbersome and lacking required features, so DFCU Financial purchased TechSmith Snagit.

Seven Ways to Use the iPad for Workplace Learning

Upside Learning

Lotus or MS Exchange? The iPad is here. After all the hype, which it didn’t quite live up to, there was a lot of commentary web-wide on whether it’s suitable for elearning, or a specific type of learning. Here at Upside our camp is divided, there are iPad lovers and there are iPad baiters. The lovers are typically Apple fan-boys who are crazy about anything Apple, so their devotion to any bit of technology that Steve Jobs throws into the market is taken for granted.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

How to Identify Truly Exceptional Talent

Ozzie moved from Data General, to IBM/Lotus to Microsoft to the startup Talko — each time for a bigger challenge. There’s a great story about Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington’s pianist and collaborator that tells us something about truly exceptional talent. Strayhorn met Ellington in 1938 at age 23 following one of his concerts in Pittsburgh. Ellington sat Strayhorn down at the piano and challenged him to do his thing.

Why does Captivate need THREE Eye Buttons?

Title is not an nostalgic reference to the best spreadsheet application ever (Lotus 1-2-3) but is related to… Captivate. The THREE ‘eye buttons’ in Captivate are a source of confusion because they have exactly the same look (contrary to my image above) but show very different functionality.

Rebooting Processes

Learning Developments

For example, in my work place we use a Lotus Notes database to have discussion board postings. Do you ever feel like you need to reboot your brain? Feel like you've got several errant processes running and you need to reset them? I felt like that this week. Unfortunately for us humans rebooting is not that simple. We can't just flip a switch and reset everything. However, I do think we can look at the processes in our lives that are out of control and deal with them one by one.

Is Attention Important in Learning?

IBM also is looking at solutions to manage scheduling for the next version of Lotus Workplace, part of IBM's collection of software that rivals Office. But I don't think the scheduling tools that Microsoft and Lotus are building are it. A recent CNET article noted that the typical office worker is interrupted every three minutes by an e-mail, IM, phone call, etc. If you are working on something creative, it takes about 8 minutes for our brains to get into that state.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning.
