Designing Learning Campaigns and Learning Challenges

Jane Hart

Many believe that traditional classroom training as well as “click-next” e-learning courses are both ineffective and unappealing. In this four week workshop we will look at the different aspects of planning, designing and running a learning campaign or challenge, and you will have the opportunity to start the design of your own challenge or campaign, and share it with the other participants. Week 2: How to design a learning campaign or challenge.

Learning in the workplace

Harold Jarche

The more formal methods, like courses, ranked much lower on the survey results. At Pixar, east of San Francisco, [Steve] Jobs oversaw the design of the new building. If you don’t have any private social networks, try some out, like Yammer or Socialcast.

What’s Your Learning Tool Stack?

Clark Quinn

And lately, I’ve been hearing the question about “what’s your <x> stack” [x|x=’design’, ‘development’, …]. So, of course, I created a diagram. Or, of course, the ones others use in your org.

Why your Enterprise Social Network is your most valuable social learning platform

Jane Hart

as these platforms are designed to foster collaboration, communication and knowledge sharing among employees. That is, it helps to think in terms of performance outcomes – i.e. what individuals need to be able to do as a result – rather than on learning outcomes or course completions.

‘Social Business’ is Past Retirement Age

Andy McAfee

When I was a first year doctoral student at Harvard Business School in 1994-5, we took a fascinating yearlong course called “Basic Readings in Administrative Theory&# (OK, it was probably only fascinating if you were a geek). Advocating something like “social business design should place technology at the very, very end, and people first &# is both dumb and harmful, which means that a response is important.

The Business Value of Social Networks

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the articles in The Economist special report focused on this question - Yammering away at the office: a distraction or a bonus? “An astonishing amount of time is being wasted on investigating the amount of time being wasted on social networks,” it provocatively starts out saying, and then adds: “Studies regularly claim that the use of Twitter, Facebook and other such services poses a threat to corporate wealth.”.

Social Learning, Complexity and the Enterprise

Harold Jarche

FSL – Formal Structured Learning – formal education and training like classes, courses, workshops, etc (both synchronous and asynchronous). Because of this connectivity, the Web is an environment more suited to just-in-time learning than the outdated course model.

Open Learning, Open Networks

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Open online learning entered the mainstream with the growth and popularity of MOOCs, but while interest in open online courses has never been greater MOOCs represent only the first step in a broader open learning infrastructure. I am still working on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). [8]

Subject-matter Networks: The Origin Story

Mark Oehlert

One of the cool things that happened when I was doing all this yammering was that it helped me solidify a few things in my head about this very topic. One of these lucid moments came during a talk about how social media can be used to loop in subject-matter experts more easily into the design process or really into whatever stage they're needed in. So, last month, I was at the eLearning Guild's DevLearn conference in San Jose. Awesome conference. Really.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

I’d set about trying to learn answers to these questions, of course, but this would be a long, slow process. It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road.
