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. Workflow Management/Review Tool. . ?. Analytics API. The Learning and Development industry, like any other, has been inundated with new technologies and tools for learning.

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). I was perusing an old list of potential column topics, and came across one that asked about MOOCs. Now, you probably recognize that the term is pretty much evaporated from any list of top L&D concerns.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Having business and operational people work side by side with analytics experts will ensure that initiatives address broad organizational priorities, not just isolated business issues.

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.

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. Workflow and collaboration tools improve coordination and knowledge sharing among workers. Few subjects are as important, - or as challenging to predict, - as the future of jobs in our emerging digital economy. While the US unemployment rate continues to improve, - finishing 2014 at 5.6%

What’s in your social media measurement tool box and why?

Beth Kanter

Measurement tools or perhaps more accurately, social analytics tools collect that data. If you are measuring reach, engagement or action, you’ll need an analytics tool. Analytics Tools: Google Analytics, Facebook Insights, Twitter Tools (Socialbro, Hootsuite, Bit.ly, Twitalyzer). These tools combine what’s needed into one application. They also say that a single MMM tool won’t solve all your needs and that Google Analytics is another must have.

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. The eLearning Guild is celebrating it’s 10th year, and is using the opportunity to reflect on what learning will look like 10 years from now.

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.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Where good practice can be defined, training and development may also help by building better analytical capability and judgement. We need to help our leaders, managers and workers to better exploit the learning opportunities in their daily workflow. Determinism is the philosophical idea that every event, including every human decision and action, is the inevitable result of preceding actions and that, given certain conditions, there is only one outcome. Nothing else can happen.
