Tony Karrer

Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” For example, Harold Jarche tells us 2010: Year of the CM.

Seven Things I Learned This Year

And every year I use this as a Big Question – see: Learning 2010. During 2010, I’ve been ramping up my use of twitter as a learning tool. Learning Coach Model Very Powerful In 2010, I had a great experience where Dr. Joel Harband wrote a series of articles for my blog on Text-to-Speech in eLearning.

SharePoint Templates for Academic Departments

Tony Karrer

One of my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 was “Lots of SharePoint”. I received the following inquiry in between the time I finished writing my predictions and when it went live: I found your post, SharePoint Examples , regarding finding others using SP in training organizations. I actually don’t know where to find templates that might go behind the kinds of use cases that I discuss in Using SharePoint or that is described above.

Tom Vander Wall Nails My Sharepoint Experience | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

SharePoint is many things, but it misses the critical element of social media which is networked connection between people and ideas, easy discoverability, makes visible and allows people to act on weak ties, and support for other network-like interactions rather than closed group performance.

SharePoint Fear and Loathing by Learning Professionals

Tony Karrer

I was surprised by the fear and loathing expressed around SharePoint yesterday at LearnTrends 2009. SharePoint 2010 looks to be a much better product. Certainly we’ll be doing more sessions like SharePoint in Corporate Learning - Free Micro Virtual Conference (see SharePoint Session Descriptions ). And I’ll continue to collect examples of how organizations are Using SharePoint. You are interested in how SharePoint can better be used in your organization.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

This could be: SharePoint, Yammer, Confluence, etc. If an organization has SharePoint and InGenius, my preference would be that social interaction occurs in SharePoint. InGenius should integrate into SharePoint.

What will change in 2010?

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Who needs to be confined by the likes of SharePoint when you can easily see how everything is related? I nnovations in computing used to trickle down from business and government to consumers. Mainframes evolved into personal computers.

Standalone LMS is Still Dead (rebutting & agreeing w/ Dave Wilkins)

Dan Pontefract

Maybe that is, for example, Learn.com, Saba, SharePoint 2010, or mainstays like SAP and Oracle. Organizations already have content platforms (Documentum, SharePoint, etc.), Last year, I wrote a piece entitled “ The Standalone LMS is Dead ”.

Micro-Blogging is Good for Leadership, Good for Your Culture

Dan Pontefract

Of course, if you already utilize platforms such as Confluence , Jive , SharePoint , IBM Lotus , Salesforce.com amongst others, there are built-in micro-blogging or status update features. Inside the organization, a dilemma now exists and is rapidly taking shape.

KM2010 - Washington DC

Dave Snowden

The opening day of KM World 2010 and for the first time on the East Coast. The emphasis on Sharepoint for example; this competent file/data sharing product seems to have got a stranglehold on collaboration and corporate use of social computing. Sharepoint looks to be knowledge management's Sick Stigma , the albatross of the ancient mariner, over constrained and over structured for what should be a fluid dynamic system.

eLearning Predictions Further Thoughts

Tony Karrer

I recently posted my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 and did a presentation on the topic. SharePoint We had some very interesting exchange around SharePoint. But I had to share the comment: When I train on SharePoint, the biggest issues is that people don't understand what's possible. I really think that’s a big source of SharePoint Fear and Loathing by Learning Professionals.

Snake Oil 2.0: Lipstick on a pig

Jay Cross

Dan Pontefract, over at TELUS , puts it succinctly: This is why we need to federate the LMS into the ‘collaboration’ platform, be it Jive, SharePoint, Connections, Confluence, whatever. Several large LMS companies added “informal learning&# to their sales shticks this week.

TTI Vanguard Conference Notes - 3

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Discussion of Microsoft vis-a-vis Facebook, whether people use Sharepoint, its relation to open source, etc.) Lili Cheng, Future Social Experiences (FUSE) Lab, Microsoft Designing Applications and Services for Our Social Nature We asked people in a mall who they interact with, they would put themselves at the centre and different groups of people in clusters around them. So we tried to do was to do the same sort of thing with your email, and it builds a similar sort of cluster map for you.

TTI Vanguard Conference Notes - 6

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Longish discussion of how the system has different levels of security, isn't cleared for top security (FUOU or whatever), where Sharepoint is used. Stephen Downes, National Research Council Dimensions of a learning Network In this talk I overview the major elements of Connectivism and learning network theory, explaining how networks are used to foster learning,and describing the properties of stable or effective networks.

Collaboration is work

Harold Jarche

We place new labels on the issue (it’s not KM anymore, now its collaboration); new products emerge (SharePoint: “it does everything&# ), and all too often forget the lessons of the past. Tweet As I get together with my Internet Time Alliance colleagues here in California, I really appreciate all of the connecting and conversing we’ve done over the past two years, as our shared experiences ease the path to further collaboration.

Reflections on Web 2.0 Expo

Clark Quinn

I also was intrigued to see Microsoft showing the Fuse team rather then SharePoint. Last October I toured the expo associated with O’Reilly’s Web 2.0 Conference, and had the chance again this week. Somehow, it didn’t feel as vibrant. Still, there were some interesting developments. A couple of companies were there who I talked about last time, including Blue Kiwi (who I didn’t visit this time) and Vignette (who I did visit, unintentionally).

When to LMS

Clark Quinn

SharePoint, as Harold Jarche points out on a comment to a subsequent Dave post ). Dave Wilkins , who I admire, has taken up the argument for the LMS in a long post , after a suite of posts (including mine ). I know Dave ‘gets’ the value of social learning, but also wants folks to recognize the current state of the LMS, where major players have augmented the core LMS functions with social tools, tool repositories, and more.
