Drupal has 10,000+ modules, 300,000 downloads a month, 1.5M It’s a collaboration model.” Module developers can get funded from LSD.

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

One clear finding presented was that: “t hose activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.”

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

In other words, we need to plan and work not only at building individual capability, but also team and collaborative and co-operative capabilities. By supporting learning within the workflow, and through and with others, the culture of learning will evolve – I’ve seen it happen

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

I’d used the phrase ‘learning delivery’ when describing computer-supported collaborative learning ( CSCL ) approaches. During a meeting at Cambridge University around 30 years ago I was thoroughly chastised by a Cambridge academic.

It’s Only 65% !

If you’re supporting effective leaning and development in an environment where agility and innovation are at a premium then you’d better be prepared to support higher levels of collaborative and ‘trial-and-error’ learning – in the ‘70’ and ‘20’ zones.

Start with the 70. Plan for the 100.

Extending Learning into the Workflow Many Learning & Development leaders are using the 70:20:10 model to help them re-position their focus for building and supporting performance across their organisations. They are finding it helps them extend the focus on learning out into the workflow.

Managing Learning?

She sees the future of technologies supporting learning as a mash-up of social co-operation and collaboration tools aligned with the emerging social workplace. Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’.

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.

The Only Person Who Behaves Sensibly Is My Tailor

Charles Jennings

We measure how many people have attended a class or completed an eLearning module, or read a document or engaged in a job swap or in a coaching relationship. Attending a course or completing an eLearning module tells us little apart from the fact that some activity occurred.

Especially if they can gain that knowledge and expertise more easily and without leaving their desk or workflow. I recall using one enterprise LMS that required 13 clicks of a mouse (some counter-intuitive) to register and launch an eLearning module.

Listening

When working a strategy session with clients, I seed the discussion before hand with the challenges and background material, and ask that everyone think on their own before we begin collaboration. In making the Workplace of the Future project with Learnnovators, we were barreling along full tilt, working on the second module, and I was getting increasingly worried about the fact that we hadn’t tested the first. Listening, as I mentioned, in this case to Guy Wallace.

Thus we can develop a workflow ontology in OWL. So ontology modules can be efficiently interchanged. You can get different perspectives to a module. The knowledge base of the 'utilizer' modules are augmented by sets of nominals from 'realizer' modules. After augmentation, the knowledge engines are not expected to take into account the realizer modules any more. Diagram of 'requirements' module). These are defined by other modules.
