Workplace Learning: Adding, Embedding & Extracting

Charles Jennings

Typically, adding learning involves integrating structured away-from-work learning (courses, classes, and eLearning modules) with learning activities within the workflow. Embedding learning in work can also be achieved without sophisticated technology.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

In other words, simply improving traditional training approaches – even introducing learning technologies into the classroom model – will not achieve the improvements needed. Most people get it.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

One of which is “if learning is managed by the learner, what will the technologies that support her look like in the next 3, 5, 10 years?” Of course we will need technology to support learning. Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’.

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

Those organizations (and frankly public learning institutions) that are clinging to their standalone learning management systems as a way in which to serve up formal ILT course schedules and eLearning are absolutely missing the big picture. This is the nuclear fault of the LMS itself and of anitquated thinking from our learning leaders; it encourages standalone learning by driving people to register for an event … be it an ILT class or an eLearning module.

What's the opposite of evolution? An interesting question about SCORM

Mark Oehlert

"Where I see the technology going is being adopted by a major player in non-traditional learning for grade and high school students. The use of the technologies will be financed by non-traditional program dollars that states provinces and countries are setting aside to find ways of educating students that don't fit into a class room." The purpose is to allow each SCORM compliant course or module to transfer tracking information no matter which LMS platform you are using.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

New Technology The development of new technology continues to have an impact on learning. While on the one hand, new technology allows schools and instructors to offer learning in new ways, educators nonetheless continue to face limitations imposed by technology, and sometimes the lack of technology. The employment of data compression technologies has almost been superseded by fibre-optics technology such as lightpath management.
