Learning by Osmosis

Dan Pontefract

I liken learning in an organization to osmosis. Learning therefore is part art and science. Learning by osmosis permits employees the opportunity to allow new ideas and concepts to fill our gaps through any type of passage or membrane. And most importantly, learning should be thought of as pervasive. We — as workers in the organization — learn by doing not by rote memorization. We must instil pervasive learning as our new mindset.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

Jay Cross

What Universities Must Learning About Social Networks. Increasingly, businesses are looking to more social approaches to employee learning and development. THE ISSUE IS NOT whether you are going to become a socially networked university but how soon. Businesses are being transformed into social businesses. Social business is the flavor of the day in the C-suites of the Fortune 500. No one learns alone either. Networks Social Learning

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

On New Year’s Eve, 2012, the organization where I ply my trade during the day made a decision to move forward with a deployment of SuccessFactors (an SAP company) and alongside the cloud-based talent applications such as learning, succession planning, compensation, performance amongst others, we decided to also implement Jam – their online collaboration tool.

from training to learning

Harold Jarche

While social learning may be one the currently hot new trends in the education and training fields, we have known for a while “why tried-and-true training methods don’t work anymore”, as discussed by Brigitte Jordan (1937-2016) in the mid-1990’s while working at the Institute for Research on Learning. Here are the highlights — From Training to Learning in the New Economy. Learning is inherent in human nature. Learning shapes identity.

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

Those organizations (and frankly public learning institutions) that are clinging to their standalone learning management systems as a way in which to serve up formal ILT course schedules and eLearning are absolutely missing the big picture. This is the nuclear fault of the LMS itself and of anitquated thinking from our learning leaders; it encourages standalone learning by driving people to register for an event … be it an ILT class or an eLearning module.

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

In other words if people have the opportunity to learn and develop as part of their work and they are supported by their manager, then learning will be much better transformed into measurable behavioural change and performance improvement. Context is Critical Although the Corporate Executive Board study is a good one, it didn’t tell us anything new about the importance of context for effective learning. The thinking is still principally about adding learning into work.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring. Of course external factors – such as other people (especially your manager and your team), technology, prevailing culture, general ‘environmental’ factors, and a range of different elements – can support, facilitate, encourage, and help your learning occur faster, better, with greater impact and so on. But they can’t manage the learning process for you.

TOPYX LMS

These often-elusive concepts known as New Year’s resolutions can be fulfilled when the right support system is in place, namely a social learning management system (LMS).

An Updated Business Model for Training Vendors

Dan Pontefract

Learning 2.0, for me, is the switch from a ‘training is an event’ culture, to a ‘learning is a collaborative, continuous, connected and community-based’ culture. There are few training vendors out there, in my estimation, that are making the shift to becoming a Learning 2.0 There is more to this Learning 2.0 puzzle than a 4-level evaluation system linked to a formal piece of learning content, be it ILT or eLearning.

Managing Multiple Learning Managment Systems - The High Cost of Choice

Xyleme

Did you know that today there are approximately 500 Learning Management System vendors in the market? In fact, it’s a scattered and fragmented market, one that is wreaking havoc on Learning & Development. In this environment of too much choice, the buying decision is complex and drawn out, and the unintended result is that learning organizations often end up implementing more than one LMS.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. It may be argued that the relation between ethics and law is such that in a treatment of the ethics of learning analytics we ought also to be concerned with the law in relation to learning analytics.
