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.

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

Charles Jennings

These are the words of Charles Dickens, 19th century English writer and social critic, writing in his epic novel set in England and France at the time leading up to the French Revolution. It really is the best of times and the worst of times for learning professionals. The findings make salutary reading for any CLO, learning leader or L&D professional.

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.

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.

The High Value of Learning Paths

TOPYX LMS

This is not just a metaphor for life; it is also one for learning. If learning is anything, it is a journey. At least, true learning is not. Many companies train their employees in the same manner they did 5, 10, even 20 years ago: using a classroom-style, traditional model of learning. This style of learning isn’t bad, but it isn’t always adequate. Only about 10 percent of what people learn from books is retained , provided the book is read only once.
