Learning Tools Directory 2011

Jane Hart

I’ve just spent the last few days overhauling the Learning Tools Directory. So I’ve just rebuilt this year’s Directory – which still lists well over 2,00o tools. Over the last year there has been quite a lot of change one way or another in terms of tools.

The updated C4LPT Directory of Learning & Performance Tools & Services

Jane Hart

The Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT) Directory of Learning & Performance Tools has been completely updated and revised, and each tool now has its own entry. It also includes new Like buttons for you to rate the tools and platforms listed. It has also been expanded to include a Services category – for both […]. Social learning

Free online courses directory

Alternatives for Dimdim

Jane Hart

In the list of Live tools in my Directory of Learning tools you can find nearly 120 tools for web, audio and video conferencing, screen sharing as well as accessing/ building virtual worlds. I hope this might give you some ideas – and if you know of any tools that are not already on the list, please add the details in the comments below the list on the Directory page itself, and I will add them in.

The C4LPT Learning Store

Jane Hart

At the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) I’ve provided a variety of free resources for many years now on workplace trends, technologies and tools – notably the Directory of Learning Tools and the Top 100 Tools for Learning lists.

SimplyBox – the future of organizational collaboration?

Jane Hart

When I was updating the Directory of Learning Tools for 2011, I reviewed each and everyone of the 2,000+ tools in the list. But there was one tool that jumped out at me as being importantly different: SimplyBox - described as “the only decentralized and contextual enterprise communication solution&#. There are a number of [.]. Tools

A fine suburban #sunrise and a vexing #CS6 issue

Doc Searls

I just checke, and the same thing happens with all files from all directories on all drives. Made a dawn run to the nearby Peets for some dry cappuccinos, and was bathed in glow on my return by one of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever seen. It was post-peak when I got back (to the place where I’m staying in Gold River, California), but with some underexposure and white balance tweaking, I was able to get the shots in this set here. Alas, the shot above is not in that set.

Wallpaper

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I'm using CoreDownload Wallpaper Changer , along with my collection of tens of thousands of photos (three or four times what I've uploaded to Flickr; Core descends into a directory tree, while the others I've looked at depend merely on a list) to change my desktop wallpaper.

Finally, maybe, getting a podcast rolling

Doc Searls

I did that by putting it on the same directory at Searls.com as the last podcast already sat. But I can’t figure out how to point to that directory, or to replicate the process by which I made the podcast file appear in the first post. Hi, Liveblog fans. This post continues (or plays jazz with) this liveblog post , following my podcast learnings, live. As an old radio guy and an inveterate talker, I think I should be good at podcasting.

Specifically: when I defined the script directory for the gRSShopper scripts, I defined it relative to whatever script started first. A cron job is an automatically executed set of scripts that typically launch starting in the user's home directory.

The holy grail of radio

Doc Searls

For years it buried radio station streams in an iTunes directory most people didn’t know was there — and then created a Pandora competitor with iTunes Radio. The old stream directory still exists, for what it’s worth, under “Music.”

A new framework for supporting learning and performance in the social workplace

Content as Icebergs

Doc Searls

It presumed a directory structure, inherited from Unix (e.g. (Cross posted from this at Facebook). In Snow on the Water I wrote about the ‘low threshold of death” for what media folks call “content” — which always seemed to me like another word for packing material. But its common parlance now. For example, a couple days ago I heard a guy on WEEI, my fave sports station in Boston, yell “Coming up! Twenty-five straight minutes of content!”

Categorizing mLearning

Clark Quinn

An interesting other cut is that you can do something contextual for any or all of these areas as well: you could provide a contextually relevant or local directory of mentors for formal social or collaborators for performance support.

[liveblog] Paul Frazee on the Beaker Browser

David Weinberger

Beaker’s directory looks a bit like Github in terms of style. At the Web 1.0 conference , Paul Frazee. is talking about a browser — a Chrome fork — he’s been writing to browse the distributed Web. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. You are warned , people.

reQall is not even listed among Jane Hart’s Directory of thousands of eLearning tools.). This free tool is so cool that I was surprised to note that I had not blogged it. Imagine I want to be reminded of something. I call reQall on my cell and say the date and item. reQall interprets what I said to text and emails me at the time I specified.

Supporting Work

Clark Quinn

When we have an information need, we might need directories to people with various expertise (associated with Communities of Practice, presumably). A number of years ago, I discussed a valued model that talks about how we solve problems in the world.

Mobile Work

Clark Quinn

Certainly you could have a focused directory that knows who knows about this context, and perhaps an app that presents different options for context-sensitive trouble-shooting or repair (e.g.

Releasing an Independent Record: The 1994 Version

David Weinberger

So,the bulk of Gary’s manual is a directory of the services you’ll need to hire. For $3 at a library book sale I picked up a copy of Releasing an Independent Record , revised 4th edition, by Gary Hustwit, published in 1994 by Rockpress Publishing Co. The short review is: Times have changed. Gary’s advice is that if you want to get your music out, don’t go to one of the existing labels. Start your own.

Yell revisited

Nancy White

In my original post I expressed suprise that printed directories such as Yellow Pages had managed to not only survive but grow in the Internet age. Perhaps the post on the Yahoo Finance discussion board nailed it: “The latest Yell results looks like the end of an era and the beginning of the end of paper directories generally.

A history lesson in how to automate journalism with war and sports metaphors

Here is one of my first pieces, published in Reality 2.0 , a directory within my self-hosted Searls.com site. Then I went up to the internet level of the site’s directory, but found the Netscape view was impaired. (“Best viewed with Microsoft Explorer,” it said.) A week after this experience, I went back to Microsoft site and found its whole Internet Strategy directory much more Netscape-friendly and nicely organized.

A New Website, Part Three - Installing Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Then, using gftp, I have uploaded the drupal archive from my home computer to the www/drupal directory. Again, if this were just an ordinary web account, with only one domain, I would have simply uploaded it in into the main document directory, www. This will create the full directory structure, putting all the files in the right place. I then (using the Linux change director command, 'cd') move to the www/drupal directory. to put myself in the main www directory.

Social First!

Clark Quinn

It might be asking a SME via an expertise directory. I’m convincing myself that as performance consultants assisting our organizations moving forward, we need to start thinking differently. And as an extreme version of this, let me start by saying we need to start thinking ‘social’ first. When we’re facing a performance problem in the organization, our first resort should be to ask: “would a social solution solve this”? Let me explain.

Yammer

Jay Cross

Yammer also serves as a company directory in which every employee has a profile and as a knowledge base where past conversations can be easily accessed and referenced. If you’re assembling a far-flung collaborative team or bringing together a community of practice, here’s a way to help people stay connected. Yammer is like a private Twitter. Instead of Twitter’s question, “What are you doing?&# , Yammer asks “What are you working on?&#.

A New Website, Part Ten - More on Mailing

Hiya, Summary: I solved the problems by creating the /Mail directory in my account on mail231.csoft.net and then rebuilding my mailboxes. The /Mail directory should have been created when the account was created 2. Documentation on how to set up mailing lists should be complete, *especially* the bit about running the command on a second server in the Mail directory 7. At that point, he would have noticed that the directory doesn't exist.

Open Source eLearning Tools

Tony Karrer

Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. You can find a long list of tools broken into authoring tools, games/simulations, quiz/test tools, social media, delivery platforms, tracking and whether they support mobile. In addition, she indicates if they are free or cost money – which is not quite the same thing as open source.
