I've not seen a lot about Mzinga in the eLearning world, but it represents something pretty interesting. Mzinga is a merger of KnowledgePlanet (an LMS provider and also the maker of the eLearning simulation tool - Firefly) and Shared Insights - a community / business social networking software company. The top execs at Mzinga are not the top execs from KnowledgePlanet. I wonder if mzinga does?

Mzinga seems to have jumped out early with a strong social platform that also has an LMS capability. Dave Wilkins from Mzinga talks about the two models of social learning as depicted by the diagram on the right. As a follow on to the discussion of social learning and formal learning in Long Live … great post by BJ Schone - Have LMSs Jumped The Shark? I constantly hear people (across many organizations) complain about their learning management system (LMS).

Mzinga is clearly targeted at the learning space, being integrated with an LMS. Yet, for a learning group, Mzinga’s integration of formal and informal learning is also plausible. I spent yesterday touring the Web 2.0 expo (part of the time with fellow miscreant Jay Cross ), and it led me to think a bit more about social media tools and approaches.

I would add that Mzinga is another elearning company on this chart, in addition to Saba. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc.

There are some very cool new features especially our hot list feature coming out soon on the eLearning Learning Content Community. The site is beginning to take into account social signals. In other words, we are using what is happening: with the content out in the network on the eLearning Learning searches that land on us and that occur on the site, and various other kinds of behaviors.

Mzinga’s Dave Wilkins describes several production roles. More Human Than Human. CLO magazine, June 2009. Column on Effectiveness, by Jay Cross. The future is people, not technology. My last column in CLO called for the abolition of corporate training departments. Now some instructors and traditional instructional designers see me as a job threat. They needn’t worry. Enlightened e-learning requires more people, not fewer.

In the CLT, Dave Wilkins of Mzinga talked about the ‘Amazon’ model of tools around a learning resource (as a formal learning model) and the community model of tools embedded in a community. Sorry for the dearth of postings, but what with last week’s DevLearn conference and this week’s (free, online) Corporate Learning Trends (CLT) conference, and background kitchen remodel, client work, etc, I’ve been wiped out by the end of every day.

I’m still not convinced there’s an LMS that integrates social networking tools in a way that makes a smooth segue from formal to informal, though I know Mzinga’s making a stab at it.Â After hearing Mark Oehlert and Brent Schlenker do such a great job on eLearning 2.0 at the Guild’s Summer Seminar, I got my own chance to talk about it to a corporate group, but with a twist.Â Much of elearning 2.0

Mzinga is going a different direction focusing on collaboration and social media capabilities. Mzinga certainly is way better as a product that my dire prediction. It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009.

Future of Training Started Yesterday – Dave Wilkins – Mzinga The gist: we need to completely rethink training departments and responsibilities from the ground up (both literally and figuratively) and we need to recognize that we are midst of a transition to a new normal. This is a very strange time. While increasing amount of concept work and the pace of change puts a premium on learning, the business of learning faces an incredibly difficult time.

However, there's Communities / Social Networking and LMS Merger announcement around Mzinga. In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. I thought it would be worth looking back at what I said in this post to see how I did for the year. Shortly, I'll be responding to this month's Big Question with my Predictions for Learning in 2008. Biggest challenges for 2007?

Mzinga’s Dave Wilkins describes several production roles. This month’s big question asks, “In a Learning 2.0 world, where learning and performance solutions take on a wider variety of forms and where churn happens at a much more rapid pace, what new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?. Last month I opened the IADIS eLearning 2009 Conference in Portugal with an address on Redefining Instructional Design.
