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. I have seen companies completely outsource all course design/delivery in order for internal staff to focus on informal and social learning to support collaboration.

ROI and Metrics in eLearning

Tony Karrer

I'm working on an article around the use of ROI and metrics in eLearning. Does it cost less to design and develop online teaching and learning today than it did a few years ago? In this article, Clive Shepherd argues the case for return on investment (ROI) as a ROI from Workflow-Based E-Learning Business process management (BPM), workflow management, business activity monitoring (BAM), and workforce optimization software also are designed to reduce lag time.

70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

Charles Jennings

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. We intentionally add learning-focused activities into the workflow.

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

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.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

from our 702010 towards 100% performance book) If learning is embedded in the daily flow of work, rather than away from the workflow, the idea that we need to develop ways to ‘transfer’ that learning into practical use disappears.

The Link Between BYOD and Increased Productivity

TOPYX LMS

Accessing mission critical information, including eLearning and other online learning resources, with an employee’s own device whenever and wherever they may be reduces a barrier that limits adoption and engagement. LMS & eLearning

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). The results of yet another 70:20:10 survey were published recently.

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.

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). The eLearning Guild says that informal learning forms up to 80% of all workplace learning.

LMS vs. LCMS

Xyleme

Workflow management/review tool. Learning teams can use an LCMS to develop content using design templates, reusing content elements across courses and learning departments, importing and integrating content from other authoring tools, and publishing the content to multiple outputs and devices.

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.

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

Charles Jennings

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’. In it Donald posited something I’ve been advocating for years. It is this. Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring.

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.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Learning Trends 2014

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

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.

Four Ways User-Generated Content (UGC) Can Make its Way into.

Xyleme

So when I got to the part of Jane’s article that said it’s time to re-think the design and delivery of formal learning initiatives, I felt we were on to something. Jane nails it when she says: “It is also not just about churning out content (however well instructionally designed) but also about the social aspects of learning. This pool of connected assets gives authors and instructional designers a more powerful arsenal of resources for creating compelling learning (formal or not).

The Top 2 Functions of a Learning Management System

TOPYX LMS

More specifically, there are few people who know what a learning management system is and is designed to do. If there’s anything an LMS is designed to do, it is to facilitate employee training. And, sadly, traditional training can be less-than-engaging, and not nearly as effective as eLearning. Stacey Pezold, contributor to Forbes , said that eLearning boosts retention rates by 25 to 60 percent , whereas traditional learning only increases retention rates by 8 to 10 percent.

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.

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.

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.

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. Effective Responsive Design.

e-books, open standards, and content formats

Xyleme

Very analogous to eLearning delivery before the SCORM standard (Does it work on my LMS?)! We don’t have to develop a new way to handle e-Books in our application workflow, it’s simply another output. With a proprietary system, it requires a lot more effort to develop and integrate seamlessly into the existing workflow. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc.

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.

Time for the Training Department to be Taken Seriously

These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee). This initiative designed and built software to support a pan-Canadian network of learning object repositories and to develop a Canadian version of LOM called CanCore.

Where Will the Change Come From?

Tony Karrer

A few weeks ago, I posted a summary around the November LCB Big Question "Are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant in a world of rapid elearning, faster time-to-performance, and informal learning?": eLearning Technology: Significant Work Needed to Help Instructional Designers Some interesting thoughts in the comments.

Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job - Management Consultant

Tony Karrer

In 2019: A workplace learning odyssey Performance support will be built into the workflow and take the form of online tools, networks and coaching. In The Big Question the folks from Bottom Line Performance say: The challenge for instructional designers is no longer finding some relevant information on an obscure topic. Hence my overall prediction - 50% of Workplace Learning Professionals will call themselves Management Consultants in 10 Years eLearning Technology.
