Pyramids and spheres

Yesterday there was much fun to be had at the eLearning Program 20 fifth Wedding Celebration. The word e-learning may not be 25 decades of age but the idea certainly is and the volunteers at the eLN (formerly TACT - the Organization for Computer-Based Training) have done a awesome job of offering a team for e-learning developers and experts to speak about best perform out.

My participation at the occasion was to be an essential section of with some of my other previous eLN seats offer features and lowlights of our phrase of workplace. Each of us selected one product to be placed in the bin and ignored about and one availability for the area of popularity.

From my period (2008-2011), I select two exclusive improvements, details control and Web 2.0. No awards for considering which is the idol and which the bad guy.

I exposed details control by a pyramid:

Why a pyramid? Well, because details control, as it was initially developed, was another top-down, over-structured, IT-led effort, developed for spiders not individuals. It flopped really, not least because it did not catch the skill-sets that individuals really want and need, which is now usually recognized to be tacit, traditional and operating out of real-life activities and situations.

Contrast this with Web 2.0, exposed by the area (and objective the rather inadequate system of Christmas defending paper):

A position because Web 2.0 is not hierarchically organized. Usually anyone can and does get touching anyone else, regardless of who they are. Web 2.0 has personalized the entire globe. It's to think about how we could have handled without Wikipedia, YouTube or Facebook or myspace or fb or fb. Now everyone's an instructor as well as a person. No-one knows everything and everyone knows something.

You'll be incredibly very happy to know that Web 2.0 was selected by the viewers to the area of popularity. Information control was defeated for the dustbin by our over-use of producers, as selected amorously by Jonathan Kettleborough.

Top of market was Stephen Heppell who offered a usually comfortable, comical and thought-provoking review of traditional and upcoming styles in mastering technological innovation. Laura Overton offered us up-to-date with the Towards Adulthood 2012 traditional, which provides a extensive variety of exciting new ideas. I particularly like their reputation of 'Seven skipped l&D opportunities'. There was also the ultimate of the 2012 Pecha Kucha competitors, with some awesome details. The champion was my theatrical Onlignment co-worker Phil Natural, who will now be unbearable.
