Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this paper I would like to address the core design elements in the development of a personal learning architecture being developed in the National Research Council''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program. The program draws on NRC''s research in other fields, such as machine learning and analytics. The NRC-designed MOOC differs significantly from traditional courses.

Ten IT Predictions for the Post-Pandemic New Normal

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

By 2023, 75% of the global 2000 (G2000) companies will support a workforce that is hybrid by design, enabling them to work together in real time with their preferred device whether local, remote, in the field, or switching between locations.

Learning in 2024 #LRN2024

Clark Quinn

The ExperienceAPI coupled with analytics is a huge opportunity. Working ‘out loud’, showing our work, and working together is a critical inflection point in bringing learning back into the workflow in a natural way and away from the ‘event’ model. We need to not design courses until we’ve ascertained that no other approach will work, so we need to get down to the real problems. design meta-learning mobile strategy technology

LMS vs. LCMS

Xyleme

Instructional Designers (IDs) are now under more pressure than ever to deliver the best content, and a tool that many IDs are familiar with is a Learning Management System (LMS). Also, LMSs do not provide IDs with the deep analytics required to understand what content is working and what content is not. . Top-notch LCMS solutions can even provide detailed analytics that identify the most effective content. This is an important aspect of the Instructional Designer’s job.

What’s the next buzzword?

Clark Quinn

And we’ve had someone recently claim to have invented workflow learning (though it’s been talked about for years ). Also Analytics (I think Big Data is already in the last paragraph’s category). C’mon, folks, lets get together and work on taking your design approaches and tuning them up! I was perusing an old list of potential column topics, and came across one that asked about MOOCs.

I also noticed that there is a lot of "buzz" around responsive design. Responsive design means a new way of thinking about your development process and new skills that are needed. You need an integrated authoring, workflow and publishing environment, not simply a collection of tools or a framework that allows a developer to produce "HTML5" templates.

How to Transform a “Big, Old” Company into an Agile Digital Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“As consumers, we take digital technologies for granted… We don’t wonder why these things are possible; we simply expect them,” said Designed for Digital a recently published book by Jeanne Ross , Cynthia Beath , and Martin Mocker in its Preface. Many of these established companies have already deployed mobile apps, cloud computing and data analytics, and have brought to market a variety of digital products and services. What does designed for digital mean?

So when I got to the part of Jane’s article that said it’s time to re-think the design and delivery of formal learning initiatives, I felt we were on to something. Jane nails it when she says: “It is also not just about churning out content (however well instructionally designed) but also about the social aspects of learning. This pool of connected assets gives authors and instructional designers a more powerful arsenal of resources for creating compelling learning (formal or not).

Artificial Intelligence is Ready for Business; Are Businesses Ready for AI?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A successful program requires firms to address many elements of a digital and analytics transformation: identify the business case, set up the right data ecosystem, build or buy appropriate AI tools, and adapt workflow processes, capabilities, and culture.”. A common theme throughout the report is that the same players who were leaders in the earlier waves of digitization and analytics are now leading in the AI wave. AI is now seemingly everywhere.

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. Expertise in instructional design and programme development and delivery is not going to be enough. Stick with a one-eyed focus on designing and managing ‘learning’ and irrelevance and oblivion will surely follow.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

If a chemical engineer is looking to design a new process or parameters for distillation in a chemical plant she may be able to identify the volumes and sequences that produce the highest amount of pure distillate. In other words, we can design, develop and deliver training to help people address future situations with the confidence that similar actions will produce similar results.

Increasing “Jointness” and Reducing Duplication in DoD Intelligence

Martijn Linssen

While modest gains have been made in breaking down “stovepipes,” the initial energy of these “collaborative” efforts has waned and increased spending has largely cemented bad habits: siloed analytic reporting that fuels massive duplication of effort. The underlying assumptions regarding the prevailing finished intelligence workflow have not been questioned. In fact, much of Intellipedia’s “success” is rooted in transforming non-analytic work.

Skills and Jobs in the Digital Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The period from 2006 to 2014 saw the advent of several major digital innovations , including smart mobile devices, social media, big data and analytics, cloud computing and the Internet of Things. Digital tools provide graphic artists and product designers with the ability to work more quickly and flexibly than ever before. Workflow and collaboration tools improve coordination and knowledge sharing among workers.

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. We''re told there will be analytics and data-driven management. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model. Here''s a model (Figure 1) of a workflow-processed employee to assist LMS selection. I''ve designed dozens of standards.
