Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

So traditional attempts to ‘isolate’ the impact of learning becomes very difficult and we need to adopt more holistic types of analysis to determine what works and what doesn’t.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Five Barriers to Effective Learning in Organisations

Charles Jennings

So, the question arises as to what barriers need to be overcome if L&D departments are to optimise their operations, increase the value they add to workforce performance and productivity, and remain relevant? One is in the focus on process over product.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. With a library of granular learning assets at your fingertips, you can create content assembly applications that let your users assemble their own learning products by searching, selecting, and sequencing content into new eLearning courses, ePubs, Common Cartridges, QTI assessments, and more.

Pull Platforms for Performance

These three operating processes are: customer relationship management, product innovation and commercialization and infrastructure operations. Product innovation and commercialization.   Similar to customer relationship management, the metric that drives this core operating process is simple: product (or service) life-time value.   Across virtually all industries, product life cycle compression has become a fact of life.

The Age of “Lean Manufacturing” in Learning Content Management Systems

Xyleme

The “manufacturing” of software requires people to create, test and ship products in a systematic approach, as you would with physical goods like automobiles. And then came along came object-oriented programming and all of a sudden the “production system” changed.

Dave Snowden

Now I've been involved in software development for many years, this will be the third application product I have taken to market from scratch, although the first time with my financial future at stake! This gives considerable flexibility when you are building new modules, or interacting with other applications or capabilities. The danger is that doing this right takes a long time and people don't see the final product until the end of the process.

Diversity University started out as an educational MUD; Walden University was also an early adopter, and a whole bunch more. I had designed OLe so that it used free-standing 'modules', and the IMS-LOM was perfect for this. Martin Weller has released his book 25 Years of Ed Tech today.

What's important is the absolute $ spend, the breadth of product range on which its spent, and how much results in free-on-upgrade enhancements vs new products. Yes, I know, JDE customers are supposed to get "like-for-like" access to Fusion modules.

Text-to-Speech Overview and NLP Quality

Tony Karrer

It's being adopted today in major corporations, but it's still early in the adoption cycle. Like most major innovations it needs to be accompanied by a slew of minor supporting innovations that make it practical, easy to use and effective: modulating the voice with speed, pitch and emphasis, adding silent delays, adding subtitles, pronouncing difficult words and coordinating voice with visuals. A better way is to use modulation tags to directly emphasize a word.

Listen to this, from the 'Context' section: "it it is not technology that drives adoption; it is the institutional strategy, the changing nature of the student population and the decisions of individual instructors and faculty members." The only people who really need predictive analytics are advertisers (their task will be to advise companies to create products people want, rather than to influence people to want the products they create).
