    [Ning] Training Design
    for Learning Professionals Course , we settled on using Ning and it's various capabilities as part of the delivery pattern. I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. We take into account a wide variety of considerations. Maybe it is?

    As we are wrapping up the week for Learn Trends , one of the questions we faced was what to do with the Ning community that sprung up to support the conference.

    [Ning] The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On
    An MS-Word version of this essay is available at [link] In the summer of 1998, over two frantic weeks in July, I wrote an essay titled The Future of Online Learning.

    [Ning] Forums vs. Social Networks?
    Social Network Examples are Ning and KickApps. I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards. They could also do it as comments on a blog. Options are simple.

    [Ning] The wonders of community
    The community structure was a snap to set up (start your own at Ning ) and takes nothing to maintain. I arrived in Sao Paolo knowing no one. The conference sponsors who had promised me a grand tour of the city were nowhere to be found. Then I remembered seeing some Brazilians on the Internet Time Community. And so it went.

    Social Network based discussions (for example a Ning network) act like communities.
