The key to understanding what’s going on

Jay Cross

The 50,000 foot view of what’s going on in social networks and informal learning has changed very little In the last five years. Extreme swings toward technology and institutions were Taylor’s Scientific Management, robber barons, Business Process Reengineering, and narrowly-defined eLearning (removing all the people to make it work.) Here’s a mid-2003 article from an internal newsletter from Deloitte: Social Software: Get Affiliated.

No Predictions, Just Some ‘Hopes’ for Learnerprise in 2010

Dan Pontefract

I then defined Learnerprise as: the use of emergent social software platforms as well as formal and informal competence exchange processes, between companies, partners and employees, to improve both productivity and business results. 2010, in my humble opinion, should be about the organization shifting the focus from the all-instructor-led and eLearning only intravenous drip of ‘training’, to one that supports learnerprise. Previously I wrote about how Learning 2.0

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

With the recent launch of InGenius by SkillSoft, I believe it’s time again to raise a pretty important question: Where do Social Learning Tools belong? My contention (as expressed in LMS and Social Learning ) is that most of the vendors are getting this wrong. Instead of looking at providing tightly coupled Social Learning Tools, they should instead be looking at how their offering can integrate or leverage Enterprise 2.0 eLearning Technology.

I've not seen a lot about Mzinga in the eLearning world, but it represents something pretty interesting. This merger points to another direction - combination of LMS capability + community / social networking.

Why Corporate Training is Broken And How to Fix It

Jay Cross

What worked twenty years ago doesn’t work well in the social, always-on, networked world of business we now inhabit. The social revolution of the 1960s gave rise to the concept that learning is individual. eLearning was born. Venture capitalists funded scores of eLearning companies, most of which disappeared in the dot-com crash a few years later. Many of the corporations that adopted eLearning fell under the same mistaken spell that beguiled investors. Social.
