Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

One of the causes is unenlightened designers. You know, it’s not like one dreams of being an instructional designer as a kid. This is not to touch on their commitment, but even if they did have courses, they’d likely still not be exposed to much about the emotional side, for instance. Good learning design is not something you pick up in a one week course, sadly. That’s the designer’s job, but they’re not equipped.

7 principles of intervention in complex systems

Just What is a UX Manager?

Marketing and learning are the same

Harold Jarche

Google’s power-searching course is an excellent example of marketing integrated with learning. Other out-of-pocket costs are employee time to design and create the course, and a little more time tending the Google+ sessions and answering questions.

The Rise of Vendor Relationship Management

John Hagel

Most of us think of markets in conventional terms – it is about vendors seeking out customers and persuading them to buy more of their products and services. Of course, this overstates the plight of customers since the Internet and associated technology tools have already gone a long way toward empowering customers in their relationships with vendors. Our world is being turned upside down by the Big Shift.

The Legend of Apple and Xerox PARC and the Truth About Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In 1979, Steve Jobs asked Xerox to let him tour PARC, and in return he would allow Xerox to buy a hundred thousand shares of Apple for a million dollars. Jobs raced back to Apple and told his engineers to change the course of the personal computers under development and copy the Alto’s advanced capabilities he had just been shown at PARC. But, did they actually steal the design for the Lisa and the Macintosh from Xerox, the legend implies?

Emergent learnings

Harold Jarche

Talent development in firms today typically comes in the form of stale training courses and presentations rather than a focus on tacit knowledge development. The knowledge economy has taught us how intangibles like intellectual property and design can be converted into money.

Doc Searls

If you buy a new iPhone from Sprint they’ll buy back your iPhone 4s for $235. The cabin is co-occupied by dozens or hundreds of conductors at any given time, all competing for your attention and telling you something they hope will make you buy something or visit other sites. If you looked at pants a few sites back, you might see ads for pants, or whatever it is that the system thinks you might want to buy, whether you’re in a buying mood or not at the time.

It is neatly summed up in an Inside Higher Ed article : "Like traditional publishers, it commissioned and paid authors to produce high-quality textbooks, and to market those textbooks to professors to assign in their courses." It's the same model being embraced by the companies that are offering MOOCs, and it won't be long, as a commenter on the IHE article states, before they are offering closed open online courses.

Clay Shirky

Higher education is now being disrupted; our MP3 is the massive open online course (or MOOC), and our Napster is Udacity, the education startup. We have several advantages over the recording industry, of course. Seeing this, he quit and founded Udacity, an educational institution designed to offer MOOCs.

Giving respect to brand advertising

Doc Searls

While most advertising didn’t come from Madison Avenue, or practice big-budget branding methods, it was still simple and straightforward: companies buying time and space to send messages across to target groups.
