Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

For marketing, this is the real challenge – can the new product get widespread acceptance? Workflow Learning (including wider acceptance of performance support instead of training). Open Source. … and that these probably wouldn’t get across, yet: Wikis (partially because of the name). A year later the use of blogs had exploded, while workflow learning had stalled and I noted that an understanding of the value of informal learning was catching on.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

As for e-learning, 2008 was a year in which very little actually occurred(even in gaming, the headline reads Old Standby Back On Top ).

That gives us four terms: ‘massive’, ‘open’, ‘online’, and ‘course’.
