Jay Cross

What Universities Must Learning About Social Networks. Increasingly, businesses are looking to more social approaches to employee learning and development. THE ISSUE IS NOT whether you are going to become a socially networked university but how soon. Businesses are being transformed into social businesses. Social business is the flavor of the day in the C-suites of the Fortune 500. No one learns alone either. Networks Social Learning

from training to learning

Harold Jarche

While social learning may be one the currently hot new trends in the education and training fields, we have known for a while “why tried-and-true training methods don’t work anymore”, as discussed by Brigitte Jordan (1937-2016) in the mid-1990’s while working at the Institute for Research on Learning. Here are the highlights — From Training to Learning in the New Economy. Learning is inherent in human nature. Learning shapes identity.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

On New Year’s Eve, 2012, the organization where I ply my trade during the day made a decision to move forward with a deployment of SuccessFactors (an SAP company) and alongside the cloud-based talent applications such as learning, succession planning, compensation, performance amongst others, we decided to also implement Jam – their online collaboration tool. Overall, Jam deployed to the organization easier than some of the other SuccessFactors modules. (I

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

In other words if people have the opportunity to learn and develop as part of their work and they are supported by their manager, then learning will be much better transformed into measurable behavioural change and performance improvement. Context is Critical Although the Corporate Executive Board study is a good one, it didn’t tell us anything new about the importance of context for effective learning.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

These are the words of Charles Dickens, 19th century English writer and social critic, writing in his epic novel set in England and France at the time leading up to the French Revolution. It really is the best of times and the worst of times for learning professionals. The findings make salutary reading for any CLO, learning leader or L&D professional. Stick with a one-eyed focus on designing and managing ‘learning’ and irrelevance and oblivion will surely follow.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring. Of course external factors – such as other people (especially your manager and your team), technology, prevailing culture, general ‘environmental’ factors, and a range of different elements – can support, facilitate, encourage, and help your learning occur faster, better, with greater impact and so on. But they can’t manage the learning process for you.

Real learning – let’s not confuse it with completing templated exercises

Charles Jennings

I read a piece written by Kate Graham of e2train on Thursday and it started me thinking about the ‘real learning versus managed learning’ debate. I just think that she has got it wrong in this piece as to what real learning is and the role that LMS and ‘social learning’ have to play in the mix of building workforce capability and effectiveness in organisations. Can We Really ‘Manage’ Learning? Even your friendly learning professional.

Managing Multiple Learning Managment Systems - The High Cost of Choice

Xyleme

Did you know that today there are approximately 500 Learning Management System vendors in the market? In fact, it’s a scattered and fragmented market, one that is wreaking havoc on Learning & Development. In this environment of too much choice, the buying decision is complex and drawn out, and the unintended result is that learning organizations often end up implementing more than one LMS.

Engagement and Personalized Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to David Wiley, Lying About Personalized Learning. OK, I think we can all agree that having a student interact with nothing but a computer program - no matter how personalized - is a poor substitute for a proper program of learning. Learning, though, when viewed more widely, typically involves some sort of interaction with others. So we want to include a dimension of social interaction in our online learning.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. It may be argued that the relation between ethics and law is such that in a treatment of the ethics of learning analytics we ought also to be concerned with the law in relation to learning analytics.
