Seven Things I Learned This Year

Tony Karrer

Over the past few years, I spend part of December going back through my blog to recap a bit of what some of the key things I’ve learned over the course of the year. I’ve been doing this the past few years, for example: Learned about Learning in 2009. And every year I use this as a Big Question – see: Learning 2010. Twitter is Much Better than I Thought for Learning I used to say during presentations that I wasn’t quite sure about twitter as a learning tool.

No entries from Outlook/Blackberry contacts, Ning, Yammer or other online networks were utilized. LinkedIn is much better at the ‘who am I’, and ‘how can I help’ aspects of social networking … as well as the obvious network contact control mechanism.

Learning Outcomes

Tony Karrer

My post on learning goals has some great feedback via comments and a couple of blog posts. The focus of the post is really about the design of informal / social learning experiences and my belief that they need to have context for what I call Directed Learners. Particularly, there still needs to be Learning Outcomes defined. But please don't read Learning Outcomes to mean Learning Objectives. We aren't sure what they will learn."

SharePoint Update

Tony Karrer

SharePoint in Corporate Learning One of the hardest things for me to find are good examples of how people are really using web 2.0 This is a great opportunity to hear lots of examples of what they are doing with SharePoint around Corporate Learning in a wide variety of organizations. If you are interested in attending, go to the Learn Trends Ning Site and sign-up. Other possible participants are from Valvoline/Ashland and Microsoft Learning.

Tony Karrer

They see the benefit of the tool in a strict learning environment, but have difficulty seeing its use in an expanded role. Of course, there’s no easy answers here, but lots we can discuss and learn around this. Of course, there’s a lot of great information out there on this via eLearning Learning under terms like Discussion Forum , Collaboration in Discussion Forums , Discussion Forum Adoption , Benefits of Discussion Forums , Discussion Forum Case Studies.
