Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

I don't personally think this is the right direction for individuals and in my recent presentations on eLearning 2.0 , I suggested in my examples for what this looks like in a corporate environment that people use a tool like Blogger. I did suggest that they would either use a Wiki behind the firewall or use a password protected Wiki - because that's where the work product goes. If it's captured in a system inside the corporate firewall, it won't go outside.

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

Tools - A Summary - was general consensus around: Software as a Service is Great for Learning Professionals inside Corporations Firewall restrictions still pose a problem for SOME services Security is a concern, but generally should not stop use The reason that Software as a Service is so attractive is that it is often hard to get Corporate IT to spend time on getting even simple software packages set-up and even harder to get them to agree to support these packages.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

Janet juxtaposes the recent inclusion of eLearning 2.0 For Wiki-like capabilities, it likely is fine for an LMS to provide these and for learning organizations to use them. It makes sense in many of these cases to keep it inside the firewall. So no problem if their Wiki is tied to the LMS. Hopefully, we'll begin to see ways to allow a better handling of inside and outside the firewall solutions.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? where he talks about some of the issues with blogs within the enterprise and ends with: Wikis seem to have less baggage attached to them and that might partially (and only partially) explain their recent rise in use within the enterprise. The first uses of Wikis is as an easier content management system that houses reference material. Is it widespread among eLearning Professionals?

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

We wrapped up our free elearning webinar on Models for Learning in a New World. I described some common eLearning 2.0 patterns that are emerging much along the lines of my previous post Examples of eLearning 2.0. 2) How do you sale to the NON-Gen Y's and Millennials who are in upper management who fear things like wiki's? My suggestion is that you don't really try to sell Yammer or a Wiki or any other kind of tool.

Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

eLearning was born. Venture capitalists funded scores of eLearning companies, most of which disappeared in the dot-com crash a few years later.

Words of Wisdom*

Clark Quinn

HR speaking: We got into elearning when there were scattered experiments going on around the organization. Who needs all this rapid eLearning stuff? We strictly firewall off access to the outside, as we don’t want people getting information that hasn’t been vetted internally. Wikis and blogs? In conclusion, we’ve implemented a centralized system of eLearning.
