2009 Predictions How Did I Do?

Tony Karrer

In fact, my 12 eLearning Predictions for 2009 , was most popular post for 2009 (see 2009 Top Posts and Topics ) and it came up pretty high in the recent Top 125 eLearning Posts of 2009. So this post is my chance to go back to the predictions I made at the start of 2009 and see how I did. #1 As I discussed in my look at what I learned during 2009, I’ve found that the term eLearning 2.0 My thinking has definitely evolved around this in 2009.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

12 eLearning Predictions for 2009

Tony Karrer

In my post, 2008 2009 - written in December 2008, I looked at how well I did in those predictions, and my results were pretty good, not perfect. Some training will still be preferred face to face such as when team building or in-person soft skills are important, but 2009 will be the year when we realize that we should be justifying any in-person training. 2009 is going to be a big year for this issue. Last year I laid out in January my Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008.

It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009. In my Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008 , my last prediction was: Prediction #10 => Knowledge Worker Skills - Just Beginning in 2008, Big in 2009 The discussion of knowledge work skills is going to be BIG.

LearnTrends 2009: Balance, web 2.0, Internet Time Alliance, DAU

Jay Cross

George Siemens began the day by challenging us to see the world as a set of trade-offs. What’s the optimal balance point? Asking people to jot ideas on the white board, the line that divides presenter from audience began to blur. We’re all audience; we all presenters; it shifts back and forth. Few things are black or white; most are shades of gray. As George said, it’s nutty for only one person to do the talking among a group of 125 people.

eLearning is not a big cost-cutter. C orporations are flocking to eLearning for all the wrong reasons. It’s cheaper: no travel, no facilities cost, no instructor salaries. This sort of fanciful thinking tripped up eLearning ten years ago. Informal Learning 2.0. I n the world of business, the era of networks is crowding out the Industrial Age.

Here’re mine: The ordinary: Mobile will emerge, not as a major upheaval, but quietly infiltrating our learning experiences. We’ll see more use of games (er, Immersive Learning Simulations) as a powerful learning opportunity, and tools to make it easier to develop.
