Performance Support

Clark Quinn

Great post by Jay Cross that uses the history of performance support to set up the need for what Jay calls Learnscapes. Learnscape architects have implemented miniature versions of the internet behind corporate firewalls that provide all of these things, from peer-rated FAQs to wizards, on-line help desks, and best practices repositories. I've been a long-time believer in EPSS and ePerformance.

Use these activities as building blocks to create a rich social-learning environment when mentoring your next eLearning course. This pattern is common in coaching, counseling, mentoring and apprenticeship.

Your learning management system should have tools to control the version of the submission and updating work in a timely manner.

Initially I was going to write about my forecasts for 2020.

The MentorBlog project for example, employed the use of two-person blogs to connect students with their professional mentors, who may never have had the opportunity to meet face to face (Wheeler and Lambert-Heggs, 2008). Their mentor was able to read the student’s posting and then comment directly to the blog with their own observations, guidance and support (Wheeler and Lambert-Heggs, 2010).

Testing worked well on all well known browsers: Latest version of Chrome, Firefox 5, IE 9 and latest version of Safari (did not test with Opera, Avant or a few others). I liked that you could list your expertise in there, including technical, because if you are offering a Mentor program or SME angle, others can see who is an expert in that specific area. Extensive API and Mashup directors for you to pick and choose from.
