Top 10 eLearning Predictions 2011 #LCBQ

Tony Karrer

Lots of discussion and debate around interesting questions for eLearning professionals. Grows - But Creating "eLearning 2.0 Elliott Masie Learners as designers. Tony Bates - eLearning Outlook for 2011 1. Here are my top 10 eLearning predictions for 2011.

So you (still) want to be an elearning consultant?

Harold Jarche

Working smarter in the 21st century requires the integration of learning into the workflow. Prior to the Web, the learning professions were focused on either delivering courses or some specific sub-set of learning.

ROI and Metrics in eLearning

Tony Karrer

I'm working on an article around the use of ROI and metrics in eLearning. To ensure adequate funding and organization-wide commitment to your training program, you must be equally committed to Online Course Development: What Does It Cost? Does it cost less to design and develop online teaching and learning today than it did a few years ago? Proving 900 Percent ROI The ROI for e-learning internally at Cisco is 900 percent per course.

70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

Charles Jennings

Of course the ‘blending’ concept has been around for much longer than the past few years. Each of these, though, were used to design and deliver structured and directed learning based on some form of instructional design and, often, as part of a curriculum.

Learning in 2024 #LRN2024

Clark Quinn

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. I reckon the learner has seen a significant move to more elearning instead of an almost complete dependence on face-to-face events. I also expect that the elearning they’re seeing is not particularly good, nor improving, if not actually decreasing in quality. design meta-learning mobile strategy technology

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

Of course he was right. Of course exposure to other people is one of the primary ways we learn and improve our performance. Of course we don’t ‘deliver’ or ‘transfer’ learning either. Of course this is easier said than done.

Start with the 70. Plan for the 100.

Charles Jennings

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.

It’s Only 65% !

Charles Jennings

Training describes a structured set of events that when designed and assembled carefully can provide an effective way to help people accelerate learning (learning = behaviour change). experiential development that is part of a structured course or programme).

LMS vs. LCMS

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that allows a company, school, or organization to administer, document, track, and report on the delivery of educational courses and training programs. Workflow management/review tool. Workflow Management/Review Tool. ?.

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). In the simplest terms, this is a software package that manages course delivery and administration.

Supporting the Social Workplace Learning Continuum

Jane Hart

And that in fact, we should we be employing the very same (social) tools or platforms that are used by individuals and teams in their daily workflow to do their jobs. But once again, this means we need to think differently about that whole design process.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Sadly, many of these meet Marc Rosenberg’s description as ‘course vending machines’. A record that someone had completed a compliance course may have won the day in the past, but is less likely to do so now. Of course we will need technology to support learning.

The Need to Adapt to the Speed of Change or Die: lessons for L&D from the retail industry

Charles Jennings

Especially if they can gain that knowledge and expertise more easily and without leaving their desk or workflow. This may, or may not, involve designing, developing and delivering physical or virtual training, eLearning or some other intervention.

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.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

Always-On and Hyper-Connected Of course there are many L&D departments that are responding well to the dramatic changes that are occurring in the way that work is accomplished and all the changing expectations that come with that.

Learning Trends 2014

Xyleme

I also noticed that there is a lot of "buzz" around responsive design. Unfortunately, most of what is available are tools that simply shrink desktop eLearning to a smartphone or tablet footprint.

The Driving Test: the canary in the mine for formal training?

Charles Jennings

Of course this is no reason to dismiss all formal training and testing out-of-hand. However, it should make us question our assumptions that formal training and testing (whether classroom-based or through eLearning) will change behaviour and build high performance.

Real learning – let’s not confuse it with completing templated exercises

Charles Jennings

Learning professionals spend a significant amount of their time (maybe even the majority) designing and delivering content and then evaluating completions and short-term memory outputs from structured mandatory and compliance training modules and courses.

Point Solutions vs. Suites and Composition

Tony Karrer

One of the more interesting back-stories in Blended Learning / eLearning 2.0 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.

Working smarter

Jay Cross

Sometimes it’s easier to add smarts to the workflow (performance support) than to stuff things into people’s heads. Empowering people to take action rests on clearing obstacles out of the way and incorporating next practices into workflow. Higher ground.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These systems were modeled on distance education resources such as programmed texts and course workbooks. These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Online courses were developed according to a protocol that developed over 20 years of experience. This project, funded by Foundations such as Hewlett, involved the conversion and distribution of all MIT course materials on the internet.

Learning and Development Webinars

Moving from a traditional training strategy to one that embeds learning in the daily workflow is challenging enough. Eric Span, lead content developer at Benefitfocus shows the before and after of their learning ecosystem and how Xyleme helped them optimize their learning content design and delivery. How do you get 5 course developers to do the work of an army? Effective Responsive Design.

Five Myths of Social Learning

Xyleme

Social learning is bi-directional and user-generated content and feedback can be a valuable asset for instructional designers to develop more compelling and timely learning, whether that learning is published to a formal course, a non-formal podcast, or an informal blog.

And we saw attempts, at least, to popularize 'less democratic' processes in the writings of Andrew Keen , the growth of Citizendium and, of course, the Britannica Blog. Basic research on learning and instruction will provide new guidance for instructional design, including which instructional features promote which kinds of learning for which learners.
