Using Social Media for Learning: Tools & Practices #BHsocialmedia

Learning Visions

Video, podcasts, discussion forums, games, mentoring programs (Partner new learners with those already certified). These are my live blogged notes from a webinar presented by Brandon Hall on Wednesday, April 26 2011. (I I joined about 10 minutes late, so missed a bit!) Tom Werner, Chief Research Officer, Brandon Hall [link] LMSs are adding social features – including RSS feeds, peer ratings of content.

Open Source Web Conferencing Solutions – FREE

eLearning 24-7

Oovoo - limited features, two way video chat, files up to 5Mb, 6 way text chat. Bosco’s Screen Share - just a screen share program, open source. I have a real issue with vendors who charge extra – via a license with their “partner&# or otherwise for a web conferencing – and thus ability to offer webinars, in their solution. It should be free – 100%.
