Top 10 Tools for Learning 2016

Luis Suarez

Perhaps not only for the creation and curation of their own presentations they may have done for a particular conference event, or a client engagement, but also to learn about a whole lot of different topics by curating other people’s decks.

Notes from Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training ITHET 2013, Antalya

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

3 main forms of recording - screen grabbing - VCR recording - object-based recording Screen-grabbing - take snapshots of presentation screen, synch with audio, present as video - eg. Camtasia - problem is it destroys the object-base of presented media & symbolic information VCR recording - done in background through projector - you don''t need software on the presentation computer - eg.

Travel Budget Slashes, Meeting Crunch and Going Virtual

Nancy White

Ed-Media , a conference I’ve been invited to speak at (in Hawaii - and yes, I feel both thrilled and carbon-guilty, even with offsets ), sent email today announcing opening of virtual presentation submissions and participation. Why a Virtual Presentation?

One-way conferencing in a two-way world

Jay Cross

Yesterday I gave a presentation to a couple of dozen people using Adobe Connect Pro. Most presenters I’ve watched never go beyond the default settings. I’ve found it easier to present things in Skype.

Continuing on from my earlier posts: LMS Selection Presentation Reformulated LMS Selection Team and Stakeholders LMS Selection Process From several comments and from looking at my list of issues, I realize that writing a good LMS RFP is challenging and it's easy to make lots of mistakes. This paper present ssome important criteria to evaluate and consider when purchasing a LMS. Again - I would really welcome: Links to good templates or example RFPs.


One Week to Select an LMS – No Way

Tony Karrer

They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. My supervisors told me to research LMS possibilities and narrow it down it down to about 3-5 and report back in a week and present the pros and cons of the top ones I found. There has been fantastic comments around Learning Management System Easy of Use.

Collaboration Tools

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Clark Quinn

WebEx enjoys the largest market share with 42.6% of Guild members that use a SLS indicating that they use WebEx Training Center. If you've done webinars, you know that they are different to design and deliver successfully than other kinds of presentations and training. In fact, after you've had these features, it sometimes feels weird to be in a presentation hall and not be able to easily poll the audience (and not have a back-channel automatically).

Twitter and Webinars

Tony Karrer

So, both the webinar tool (Elluminate, WebEx, Adobe Connect, etc.) Presentation Mastery: Twitter as a Presentation Resource There are lots of good suggestions in these, but they don't really address the issue of how to present when the audience may be splitting their chat between the webinar tool and twitter. I expect twitter users to have a few updates and I certainly like when they tweet while they are listening to a presentation.

Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools - A Summary

Tony Karrer

Nuvvo was initially going to be used for the course as a registration system, communications and some content presentation. Firewalls and restrictive corporate environments caused us considerable grief: Yahoo Groups were restricted in some corporate environments, Elluminate did not work through several firewalls, we had to switch to WebEx and that really goofed up the start of the course; Yahoo Toolbar (for MyWeb ) couldn't be installed on locked desktops.

Rapid eLearning Tools

Tony Karrer

Rapid eLearning Tools Satisfaction from the eLearningGuild Research reported Feb 2007 - Course Authoring and Rapid eLearning Tool Satisfaction See also Software Simulation Tools. Page update Mar 2008. When the above graphic was taken, it shows the overall satisfaction reported by eLearningGuild members about various tools. I was reminded of the various Brandon Hall shoot-outs.

Second Life and Learning - Tony O'Driscoll

Tony Karrer

I'm sure that once you add presence-based audio (meaning you can hear people who are close to you) that WebEx style systems will begin to look more like second life so you can have easier break-out sessions.

Social Experience

Tony Karrer

It looks at how each technology relates to feeling of being present with others and whether that presence is felt beyond a specific limit of an event. Why the heck doesn't each tool – WebEx, Adobe Connect, Elluminate, etc.

Examples of eLearning 2.0

Clark Quinn

During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 In the past, I've only had a few people respond, but this time, there were so many responses I couldn't really read them and present. as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0

Well Played, Blackboard

George Siemens

Blackboard (and LMS’ in general) have been able to present the message that “you need an LMS to do blended and online learning&#. Adobe Connect has somewhat of an academic presence, but it has seen far more success in corporate settings, similar to WebEx and GoToMeeting. Sure, there are open source initiatives, but every conference where I have presented using a tool other than Elluminate or Connect has had technical problems.

Rethinking conferences

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Through their presentations at conferences, Allison Rossett, Elliott Masie, Gloria Gery, and scores of other awesome teachers have shaped the thinking of the greater learning and development community of practice. Did you see a fantastic presentation and want to emulate it?
