Demoing Out Loud (#wolweek and #DevLearn)

Clark Quinn

Demoing is a form of working out loud, right? So I recently was involved in a project with Learnnovators where we designed some demo elearning (on the workplace of the future), and documented the thinking behind it. Second, if you’ll be at DevLearn next week, I’ll be demoing the resulting course at the DemoFest (table 84). The post Demoing Out Loud (#wolweek and #DevLearn) appeared first on Learnlets.

What to Expect During a Corporate LMS Demo

TOPYX LMS

Running an LMS demo is the best way to decrease the chance of replacing a learning management system in the future. In 2016 the Brandon Hall group reported that 44 percent of companies planned to switch to a new learning technology solution (a different corporate LMS, for example) by 2018.¹ The top reason cited by Brandon Hall for company dissatisfaction with current learning technologies was poor user experience.

Impressive startups! Report from PushStart Australian accelerator Demo Day

Trends in the Living Networks

Yeseterday afternoon I went to PushStart’s demo day for their first intake. Incubators and accelerators are blossoming all over the world, with in Australia the seed accelerator space represented most prominently by StartMate , PushStart , and Melbourne-based AngelCube. I wrote about the Australian accelerator scene when PushStart was launched. I was very impressed by the calibre of the startups presenting.

3 Benefits of a Learning Management System Demo

TOPYX LMS

Have you been thinking about trying a learning management system demo? For many people, apprehension that the demo isn’t really free of charge or will interfere with current software prevents them from trying a learning management system demo. While this might be true of some demos, it isn’t true of all of them. Before we get into the benefits of a learning management system demo, let’s clarify why your company should invest in an LMS.

Moncton Demo in Support of the Maeng Family

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

June 12, 2011, Moncton, demonstration in support of the Maeng family, who had earlier been required to return to Korea because Immigration Canada had deemed that their son would pose too much of a burden on the health care system - this after they had been here for something like eight years, had built a home and a business, and sent their other son through school to university. By the date of the demonstration, the order had been rescinded.

So, where the hell have I been? (+ wallwisher demo)

Mark Oehlert

At least it hasn't been a whole month. In my defense, I have been a wee bit busy since I last posted. Saw some great stuff at the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds conference , the TTI/Vanguard re:Learning conference , trying to squeeze in time to co-write a book, see my family, do my day job oh and sleep every now and then. So, sheesh, I don't even know where to start.

Death to Zombies!

Update 2: I was pointed to a post on LinkedIn about building a VR demo…on the MBTI! Last week, I ranted about a myth that seems inextinguishable. And I ran across another one in a place I shouldn’t have. And I keep seeing others, spotting them roaming around loose.

What’s coming on the Web

David Weinberger

Firefox is hyping/explaining Firefox 4 with a “ web o’ wonder &# site that features three demos. I found the HTML5 poster helpful. On the other hand, the page does a lousy job of explaining what “ The London Project &# is demonstrating. Plus, the video playback really needs some indication of how long it is

ATD 2019: Oprah, Seth Godin & “Causing a Ruckus” in Training & Development

Xyleme

Contact Us today to schedule a call, or to request a customized demo. “Your mission, which you have already accepted, is to make change happen… Go make a ruckus.” – Seth Godin. ATD 2019 is officially in the books, and attendees walked away from this year’s event with a wealth of actionable tips as well as big picture ideas about the future of Training and Development.

Every business document should be in the cloud and concurrently editable

Trends in the Living Networks

The event included a Google Apps demo. Since in my organizations we have used Google Apps for several years the demo initially seemed very straightforward to me, though in fact I did see a number of features that we are not yet using that would be useful. The demo seemed to be over-emphasizing the concurrent editing and collaboration features of Google Docs, which I think of as pretty basic.

Twitter Captivate Integration

Tony Karrer

I particularly cited a DevLearn demo of twitter being embedded inside Captivate as the basis of a social learning experience. You can run a demo (18 mins) to see it in action. I mentioned in my post 2009 Predictions How Did I Do? that we are seeing more and more about Add-ins & Mashups as a means to build richer learning experiences. They’ve posted on the Adobe Captivate blog - Collaborative learning using Captivate and Twitter.

[iab] Robert Scoble

David Weinberger

He shows a Facebook demo. Very cool demo. I’m at a IAB conference in Toronto. The first speaker is Robert Scoble , who I haven’t seen since the early 2000s.

Getting things wrong, including emphasis.

Hackathon love

David Weinberger

They had to come up with a business idea and pitch it to five judges, explaining their idea, perhaps including a demo, showing their research (including user surveys if appropriate), and making the case for it as a sustainable business enterprise. Last weekend I was a judge at the Toronto Startup Weekend – Library Edition and was reminded again not ony how much I love hackathons, but how unexpected they are. The Toronto event wasn’t strictly speaking a hackathon.

Is a Learning Management System Really Worth the Investment?

TOPYX LMS

If so, consider requesting an LMS demo. A learning management system demo allows you to “try before you buy,” which can be more than helpful when making a decision about purchasing an eLearning platform. If you are interested in a fully hosted LMS with no per-user fees, request a demo of the LMS TOPYX. If you give an LMS demo a try , you may discover that you are a believer, too. Is a learning management system, or an LMS, really worth the investment?

Thoughts on Learning Design Strategy

Clark Quinn

One was adopting a learn-apply-perform model, which another termed a learn-practice-demo. At the DevLearn conference, I ran a Morning Buzz on Learning Design Strategy. I’m happy to say that the participants threw in lots of ideas, and I thought they were worth capturing. I started with a set of questions to address, so I’ll go through their comments in roughly that order (though we didn’t exactly follow this structure): What is learning design strategy?

Helping customers learn

Jay Cross

Onlines demos are so cheap and easy to put together that retailers have no excuse for not providing them. Informed customers make informed decisions and end up much happier with their purchases.

Qarbon Camtasia and Adobe Captivate

Tony Karrer

Question from a reader, hoping you can provide your thoughts: I am in the process of selecting an elearning tool that is easy to use, quick to create the demos and does not bloat the file size much. These videos would have software demos, screencasts and PowerPoints embedded inside them. Cons: I'm finding it a bit difficult to integrate my voice with my demos and pull everything together. To present a moving demo I need to integrate another product called Viewlet cam.

For the demo, they''re using CSV files from a Smithsonian database that consists of display names, IDs represented unique people, and a variant or married name. KARMA from University of Southern California takes tools for a wide variety of sources and maps it to your ontologies and generates linked data. It is open source and free.

The Electricity of Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Demo of learning with a 3D brain that lights up. Summary of a talk at eLearning Africa given by Jef Staes. I'm going to tell a story of why education is failing. We have a design error. This is a battle of two groups of people. There was an information shortage. So industry started schools. But today everything has changed. But today we have an information glut. If we are passionate about something we can learn.

Oculus Thrift

David Weinberger

When it arrived this morning, I took it out of its shipping container (made out of cardboard, of course), slipped in my HTC mobile phone, clicked on the Google Cardboard software, chose a demo, and was literally — in the virtual sense — flying over the earth in any direction I looked, watching a cartoon set in a forest that I was in, or choosing YouTube music videos by turning to look at them on a circular wall. I just received Google’s Oculus Rift emulator.
