Is YouTube an Enterprise App for Training?

Google and ZDNet seem to think so. I stumbled on to this Enterprise YouTube coming post on ZDNet in the Googling Google blog by Garett Rogers. … why would a company want to integrate with YouTube, especially since most are either considering or have already blocked the website from their network? After thinking a while, […]

Adobe on AIR Events- Premiere Example of "Seminars 2.0"

I just got back from the roving Adobe on AIR barcamp event in Seattle. The bus is cool, the APIs are cool, the AIR product/environment is cool, and the whole event approach is cool. It really struck me as a “2.0” seminar, in the “Web 2.0” sense- early feedback from users/participants, user-driven, high-tech, effective and […]

Blogs, Part 2

I’m working around a Blogger issue, so here is the rest of the entry. Learning and Elearning Donald Clark– Plan BWell thought, well researched information and opinions on learning and education. Here’s a GREAT example that cites John Locke’s thoughts on education and references William James too- Habitual Learning (h-learning). Recently (and informally) dubbed a […]

Interesting Reading – Blogs I Like

Validating the HTML of the posts with the W3C and Dreamweaver validator is useless; Blogger just silently fails with a blank screen. I perceive much of my own value as being a node in a […]

In the book, […]

Effective learning is more than Flash interactions

Learning is more than Flash interactions. Transfering and transforming information into strategic skills, knowledge and performance is more than instructional design. Too often we use ADDIE and elearning like a defibrillator— perhaps rescuing the organization during the current "crisis," but doing little or nothing in terms of the big picture planning for preparation, ongoing "treatment", […]

Nice Maps of Elearning Vendor Landscape

Somehow I stumbled on to this diagram or "mind map" of the elearning vendor landscape at European analyst Elearnity Research. Elearnity Research – Vendor Navigator A combination of that chart and the Clark Aldrich Chart of Consolidations might make for quite an interesting discussion of the future of elearning. Or at least make someone look […]

Synchronicity: Is ISD Dead or am I dead tired?

I am at Masie’s Learning 2006 having a great time working, learning and networking. This is the most lively I’ve seen this conference or its predecessor since 1998 or so. Lots of GREAT speakers, new ideas, new vibrant attendees, fun things, compelling discussions/sharing and cool technologies too. I’ve posted to the Learning 2006 Wiki twice […]
