How to Identify Truly Exceptional Talent
FEBRUARY 9, 2017
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.
Do you know your E-learning Buckets?
APRIL 3, 2013
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?

PLATO Notes was among the world’s first online message boards, and years later became the direct progenitor of the well known early email system Lotus Notes.
Asynch, Synch.And the Winner is?
SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
I have seen SBL courses – i.e. classes used with Lotus Notes, so you do not have to have a LMS to have a SBL. I will not lie. Not everyone loves e-learning, nor will they. That is reality, but it is not because they find the whole online learning experience to be so distasteful, rather their like or dislike is tied to the way they need to learn. I stress NEED.
Online Learning in Education
JANUARY 3, 2012
Popular ones included Lotus Notes, Blackboard and WebCT. In 1993, Jones International made its debut on the internet. The first 100% online university. In 1999, Jones International became the first online university in the U.S. to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. By 1999, other online universities were on the scene including the University of Phoenix and Western Governors University which was a consortium of small colleges in the rocky mountain area.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning
MARCH 3, 2008
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. It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions.

Bloggers whose views I otherwise respect have been waxing lyrical about a slew of IBM and Lotus videos on KM released onto YouTube. One ( original video here ) in particular, made by Lotus in 2000 (back when KM was still chic) particularly gets my goat. Gen C - Creative Generalist. Defining a generation that's not defined by age but rather by activity. Empowered, participative, and thriving on inter-relationships. Gone Fischin' - dangerously irrelevant.
Keeping Up - April's Big Question
APRIL 2, 2010
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.

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

If your CEO comes back from a KM conference and sets up Lotus, LiveLink or eRoom with complex access privilege's, you should question if they have really got the message.

Won't you please, please HELP me!

You opened up the course in a tab in Lotus Notes.no I'd like to think my e-learning is so intuitive that there is no need to add help. Pause for applause???) The reality is that no matter how brain dead simple I think it is, there is always a chance that it won't actually be me taking the course. That's right, it will be someone else with a different brain, a different level of experience, and a different familiarity with a web browser.

1995: IBM buys Lotus. The latest edition of Personal Computer World (PCW) magazine includes an interesting review of the key events and changes that have occurred in the thirty years since its first publication. Here's a quick summary of what PCW has reported over this period (bear in mind that PCW is a UK magazine and its focus is heavily PC): 1978: Launch of Commodore Pet, with 9" monitor and 16K RAM. Launch of Apple II, with 16 colours, a cassette drive and a resolution of 280x160.

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.

Example: Rumor has it that Groupware was started as a series of custom projects Lotus was doing for one of its big installations of Notes. Playing Offense vs. Playing Defense. I hate playing defense in business. It doesn’t happen all the time.

Out with the old LMS in with the new: Part I

In Lotus Notes and Outlook you can track the email, to verify they opened it and it got there. You have had this relationship with a close colleague, someone who was there for you when you initially started to move forward, but over time you realized that your BFF is nothing more than a rogue in sheep’s clothing. Time to find a new BFF LMS.

Is Attention Important in Learning?
The Learning Circuits
OCTOBER 11, 2005
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.
Itâ€™s a matter of culture

They could have encouraged rather than neglected the potential of the expensive and hard to deploy groupware (Lotus Notes) they began investing in during the 90s. I'd like to follow up on my last post and also weigh in on the question of investment in formal training and informal learning. I tend to see the world through my own professional lens, which is that of culture.
