Reflections on 15 years

Clark Quinn

For Inside Learning & Technologies 50th edition, a number of us were asked to provide reflections on what has changed over the past 15 years. The technology we had then was pretty powerful, and that has only increased in the past 15 years. So the technology was no longer a barrier, even then. Regardless of whether we overestimated the value proposition, it is still quite the technology feat. strategy technology

A year ago I posted about Telepresence: upping the stakes in synchronous communication. The video quality is wonderful and the sound is positioned correctly on the stereo spectrum, so voices appear to come from the people that are speaking. Obviously this is not a cheap technology and you need 45 Mbits of bandwidth available (not a problem at Cisco), but with energy costs as they are now, you can also see how the system would soon pay for itself.

Why we need both live and self-paced communication

Clive on Learning

What caught my attention was how this 25-30% was made up, with about 2/3 asynchronous (self-paced) and 1/3 synchronous (live/real-time), although the majority of the non-e-learning elements are synchronous as well, using the traditional classroom. I wondered why it was that we continue to value both synchronous and asynchronous communication and how it came to be this way.
