Tony Karrer

Challenges 2008

Tony Karrer

This was a great exercise and the fact that I had not considered my big challenges for 2008 made it harder to do my Conference Planning for ASTD TechKnowledge 2008. So, when I look at 2008, some challenges jump out at me: Challenge #1 - How do I balance time spent between blogging, direct conversations, small group virtual conversations, small group networking, speaking at virtual conferences, speaking at conferences and writing?

Best eLearning Blog 2008

Tony Karrer

I want to thank everyone who voted for and reads this blog - eLearning Technology. It was announced that we won for Best elearning / corporate education blog. I previously had some commentary on the edublog awards. I also lobbied for a few of my fellow bloggers who did not win. The bottom line is that none of us do this to win awards. It's nice to be recognized, but it's not going to change what we do. In a way, each of us votes every day for blogs. We spend time reading them. Commenting on them.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It's the end of 2008, and while most people are predicting what will happen in 2009 , I look back at those who predicted 2008. As for e-learning, 2008 was a year in which very little actually occurred(even in gaming, the headline reads Old Standby Back On Top ). Ultimately, time is one of our most valuable resources, and I am hopeful that in 2008 it will be easier to learn, as well as to create and locate high-quality learning content.
