Corporate Social Bookmarking Tools

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?

If it is like Lotus 1-2-3, forget it – no one is using that unless they are still using floppy discs at your workplace. Back in the 90’s (I think), there was “Where’s Waldo” books and stuff like that. Find “Waldo” was the rage.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

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.

Depends on your angle, this can be a good or bad, I sort of like it, although I just do not see the value of it, unless you are looking for a job and even then it is such an item, where someone goes, “Yowsa, they did take Lotus 1-2-3, we need to hire them!”

How to Identify Truly Exceptional Talent

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.

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.

In Lotus Notes and Outlook you can track the email, to verify they opened it and it got there.

Time to find a new BFF LMS.

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?

The Learning Circuits

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

Tony Karrer

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.

Popular ones included Lotus Notes, Blackboard and WebCT. In 1993, Jones International made its debut on the internet. The first 100% online university.

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.

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.

It’s a matter of culture

The Learning Circuits

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.
