Training Design

Tony Karrer

I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. Oh, and I called it Learning Design in the diagrams, but I'm afraid that it's really more about Training Design.

Making Your L&D Department Meaningful & Relevant

The diagram below provides a good model for establishing a governance structure. Managers need to be involved in this ‘post-training reinforcement’ as well as in any course or programme planning.

Access2OER: The CCK08 Solution

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I believe it would be worth a few words to describe a course run by George Siemens and I last fall. The course was titled 'Connectivism and Connective Knowledge'. It was offered through the University of Manitoba as a credit course, but we also offered the course for free to any person interested. It came to be called the MOOC - Massive Open Online Course. 2200 people signed up for the course as non-paying participants.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

School is chock full of formal learning — courses, classes, and grades that obscure the fact that most learning at school is either self-directed or informal. To thrive in this environment, everyone must become student and faculty and publisher and instructional designer.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. Distance learning therefore required the creation and distribution of learning content, of course packages that would support independent study. They had the model of the course packages, and they had the model of the classes. WebCT in English stands for "Web Course Tools." Of course, we had instant messaging.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This paper described experimentation in the development of distributed online courses and in software - particularly, the personal learning environment - that support the formation of connections between the far-flung pieces of such courses. This work, in turn, is suggesting and supporting the model of learning described in the first section, that of a course network supporting and informing an ever-shifting set of course episodes.

Connectivism and Transculturality

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This is only a very partial chart of these language, and really, if you were going to draw a full chart of these languages, this is just the derivation of different languages from their sources, but if you were to map the influence from one language to another language to another language you would get a very complex diagram. I love this diagram. This is one of my favourite diagrams in the entire world. I have a diagram in Spanish, how about that?

Point Solutions vs. Suites and Composition

LAMS provides rich functionality for designing a "flow” of learning activities, especially where these activities rely on collaboration between students to drive the learning process. Their particular implementation of voting, forum, questions, chat, surveys, wiki, etc.

How the Net Works

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The purpose of this paper is to describe how network learning works and to show how an understanding of network learning can inform the design and evaluation of online learning applications. Looking at successful websites in general (and looking at usability, information architecture, and other design documents) we can identify three major criteria: interaction, usability and relevance. It involves both aspects of effective content design and aspects of dynamic search and placement.

The Reality of Virtual Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These days of course we also have the contrast between the ‘real’ and the ‘virtual’. The old model is – well, this diagram (the SCORM diagram) is just a few years old - the old model is less than a decade old. I’ve identified three major types of mechanisms by which these connections are formed in this diagram here. I’ve represented it in this diagram. This diagram merges or combines two major functions. Oh, and of course, it’s all free. Of course.

Kirschner, Sweller, Clark (2006) - Readings

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The past half-century of empirical research on this issue has provided overwhelming and unambiguous evidence that minimal guidance during instruction is significantly less effective and efficient than guidance specifically designed to support the cognitive processing necessary for learning. Recent developments in instructional research and instructional design models that support guidance during instruction are briefly described.
