Learning And Social Networks

Upside Learning

Google Plus is making waves among technology savvy social networkers. Unlike Facebook or Twitter where one accesses the ‘firehose’ of data that one subscribes to and is dependent on the Friends/Following, and where users mostly use features like groups/lists etc to sort out noise from the stream, Plus uses a different approach and lets users create ‘circles’ that allow them to separate streams.

Marketing Your Association to Millennials: Make it Social

Association eLearning

Years ago, while interning for a social media marketer, I was taught the value of social media to engage and attract business. Today social media marketing has changed from meme generation, to promoted posts and tweets, image ads, and pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns on big name social media sites. So here are the facts, if you want to market your association to millennials, make it social. Facebook. Twitter. LinkedIn. Share this on Facebook.

Don’t use Facebook for teaching your class – use Edmodo!

I had never heard of it until it flew across my twitter stream in a posting from a colleague. It’s a web-based social network space for teachers and students. Its safe and easy Facebook-like interface allows the class to collaborate, connect, share content, access homework, etc. Afterwards, check out the Edmodo in Action page that showcases several examples on how Edmodo can be useful in Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Math classes.

Evaluating Facebook and Twitter for e-Learning

eFront

Facebook and Twitter. The two biggest social sites on the web at the moment (there’s also Google+, but that’s for the most part a wasteland analysts say). So how about Facebook, which also allows you to post videos but on top of that offers a lot of extra capabilities, including Group pages, wall posts, personal messages, and the ability to embed fully interactive applications (including the ability to monetize them)?

The Future of Streaming – Get Ahead of the Curve

Abila

Since Flash was now a potential security threat, the tech-wizards also deduced RTMP streaming protocol – the way video is carried from one place to another – also needed to go. While simple, on-demand video delivery is solved with HTML5, the industry is still attempting to solve for the use of HTML5 in live streaming. There are large technical hurdles that need to be overcome, and major video streaming content delivery network (CDN) providers are struggling to get up to speed. .

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. For example, my FriendFeed pages show activity from this blog, the Internet Time Blog, my Flickr account, bookmarks I put on Delicious, and my entries from Twitter. As people use various different web sites to blog, update their status, post their location, or photos, sites and tools have emerged to aggregate these various actions into a continuous eclectic stream of activities.

Twitter: Le triple filtre

Learning with e's

I've been discussing the merits of Twitter as a professional social network recently in conversation with colleagues. One of the regular objections to using Twitter professionally is that there is too great a noise-to-signal ratio. But they should also realise that Twitter can actually save them time if used in an appropriate manner. The answer to effective Twitter use, I point out to them, is the manner in which you use it. Happy Twittering!

The LMS and SNS – A Fine Balance

Upside Learning

That the LMS needs to incorporate social learning elements is no longer a point of debate but both a question of survival for the LMS itself and also a test of how the LMS handles the balance of both the elements of training and the ‘networkedness’ of the social learning. We’ve been hearing of experts commenting that LMSs today don’t come with appropriate social media technology built in. The system is geared to offer the human face required for social interactions.

3 Reasons Why Trainers Don’t Need Social Media

Question of the week: Should L&D be active within social media? This weekend there was a twitter conversation. Now, this tweet was asking specifically about the speakers being on twitter and no, you do not have to be on twitter (or any other platform) to function at your job.

My professional use of social media and communication tools

Challenge to Learn

I noticed that I use more and more social media tools and different tools to communicate. Flipboard is a mobile app that creates a magazine like interface on several streams. These streams can be fed by other tools like Twitter, Linkedin and Google reader and I love it. It also has a magazine like interface and the advantage is that you will get information from outside your standard network. I have a private Facebook account too, but I hardly use it.
