Provided a bunch of stats on social networking usage–I’m not taking notes on all that). Many businesses consider time on social networking sites wasted, but not all. Wachovia is testing social networking for sharing information and developing community within the community. Lines between social networking and formal education will blur.

Learning with e's

eLearning Learning Update

Tony Karrer

eLearning Learning was launched about a week ago. There has been quite a response and some great feedback. It made it to the delicious popular pages for eLearning and e-Learning. If you look at the other entries such as Jane Hart's recent top tools and Stephen Downes on The Future of Learning, that's quite good company. Several of my favorite bloggers have been added into the mix. I'm also listing what they show as their top tools in the widget for some of them - which I find interesting.

Measuring Blog Success

Tony Karrer

Is it helping me network? On networking - again, it's been a big success. Furthermore, looking at some factors like Technorati ranking or number of visitors is sure to cause stress. Stephen Downes post Measuring Your Blog's Outcomes and Use of Other Social Media Tools has a couple of good comments and he points to Beth Kanter's Measuring Your Blog's Outcomes and Use of Other Social Media Tools which also has good comments and some nice links to other posts on the subject.

Pattern Recognition, Neoterics and moving on.

Mark Oehlert

I like that more and more people are experiencing a networked world. So what if Technorati isn't exactly what it used to be? We have analytics out the YinYang for Twitter, Facebook and every other network we're on. Why don't the Walled Garden nuance of these new networks bother me? copy of it here on Scribd [a new network we've gained]). We need a power outlet and WiFi and we'll start the next network that will suplant Facebook.

How gamification enhances eLearning solutions

Aptara

According to Technorati, one of the major drivers behind the gamification trend is the relationship millennials have with technology. Many millennials interact through online social networks, so they are accustomed to seeking information and validation via digital means. Best practices eLearning solutions can provide social connections with online communities, such as Facebook or custom networks, offering additional ways for learners to play and share their progress.

Is There a Better Way to Social Learning?

Xyleme

My conversation with George was no exception as we spoke at length about Connectivism , social learning networks, and the future of current learning technologies (LMS, LCMS, etc.) Within 20 weeks of implementing their social network: Adoption surpassed 25K users Over 2,100 groups were formed across practices, communities of interest, competencies, etc. I think that using a learner’s own social network is how social learning is taking root.

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.

It’s obvious they practice what they preach regarding collaborative learning and social networks.

Collaborative networked learning has to go across the entire organization organically as core infrastructure.

Tony Karrer

The original post often points to some of the posts via trackbacks, but if you want to track this kind of network discussion so that you can see what's being written by different people via blog posts and comments, there's really no way. For example, you can certainly use Technorati to search for "Five Things Meme" to find a list of blog posts.
