Training Design

Tony Karrer

I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. Oh, and I called it Learning Design in the diagrams, but I'm afraid that it's really more about Training Design.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. So, what is the future of learning design?

Learning Design in a Nut Shell

Tony Karrer

I've recently updated my mental model of how I go about Learning Design, so I thought I'd share. Update: Sep 14 - Lee Kraus posted Learning and Technology: Learning Design about this and asked an interesting question - "Does this apply to both formal and informal learning?"

Read "Designing Social Interfaces" if you are involved with humans at all.

Mark Oehlert

I think it also addresses user interaction in a way that we don't usually think of when designing courses. then I think about something like "Instructional Systems Design" and it's a little less easy to see where humans fit in. . A pattern is not a finished piece of code or design.

The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. Here’s what for me was the take-away from these two talks: The Web was designed to connect pages. He points out that designers of social software are always surprised by what people do with their software, but thinks there are some patterns worth attending to. What did this look like in 2003, beyond blogs and wikis? This is an incredibly powerful pattern.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

However, you can't afford to have any of that written down (email, wiki, etc.) Many people assume that their content falls into that same pattern. The good news is that instructional designers and performance consultants have good analysis and delivery skills that are an important part of identifying and making tactical implementations happen. That said, there is almost always some technology (Wiki, blog, RSS, etc.)

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

What started as forums and wikis quickly evolved into more robust networks and communities. People can see the flow of work in small bits of conversation that, over time, become patterns.

How to support informal learning

Instead, this resilience ensures that they learn to cope with these changes more as part of their continuous “agile” development and learning (Cashman, 2009), recognizing patterns in one situation and making sense of them and applying them in another.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users. With the advent of social technologies and the unifying vision of systems of engagement, businesses needn’t follow this pattern.

Emergent practices need practice

Harold Jarche

Some problems are Complicated and I need to know a lot to find the answer, say design a jet engine or put on a TV show, but once I have the body of knowledge again results are going to be there. Twitter, blogs, wikis and social networks are tools for communities of practice.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. 20,000 wikis with more than 100,000 users.

In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging. Using SharePoint for Event Planning & Organizing Just like we used a Wiki one year and Ning another to support the online conference LearnTrends , SharePoint can be used to manage all types of events, especially internal events. In looking back at the discussion in Training Design , the suggestion is that there's a new piece here that has to do with on-going support.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

Each of these networks has its own unique style, functionality and patterns of usage. LinkedIn is primarily a professional network, designed to facilitate linkages between people who are wanting to connect for work-related purposes. Because LinkedIn is designed for professional networking, there’s a greater emphasis on building a reputation and connecting to employment and business opportunities.

I Know It When I See It

Smaller companies and startups often say that the established vendors “just don’t get it&# and that the new features they’ve incorporated – blogs, wikis, discussion forums, tags, etc. These are all activities that help patterns and structure appear, and that let the cream of the content rise to the top for all platform members, no matter how they define what the cream is. wiki style collaboration suites have very limited RSS consumption capabilities.

How the Net Works

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The purpose of this paper is to describe how network learning works and to show how an understanding of network learning can inform the design and evaluation of online learning applications. To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the brain. Rather, it is the development of a pattern of connectivity in the brain. These patterns of connectivity correspond to the skills, abilities, intuitions and habits that we develop over time. Is the wiki reliable?
