Pyramids and spheres

Yesterday there was much fun to be had at the eLearning Program 20 fifth Marriage Party. The term e-learning may not be 25 years of age but the concept certainly is and the volunteers at the eLN (formerly TACT - the Company for Computer-Based Training) have done a awesome job of providing a group for e-learning designers and professionals to talk about best work out.

My contribution at the event was to be an important portion of with some of my other past eLN chairs provide functions and lowlights of our term of office. Each of us chosen one item to be placed in the bin and ignored about and one accessibility for the region of reputation.

From my interval (2008-2011), I choose two unique developments, details management and Web 2.0. No prizes for thinking which is the idol and which the bad guy.

I revealed details management by a pyramid:

Why a pyramid? Well, because details management, as it was originally designed, was another top-down, over-structured, IT-led attempt, designed for robots not people. It flopped really, not least because it did not capture the skill-sets that people really want and need, which is now usually identified to be tacit, conventional and situated in real-life encounters and cases.

Contrast this with Web 2.0, revealed by the region (and purpose the rather poor system of Xmas protecting paper):

A place because Web 2.0 is not hierarchically structured. Generally anyone can and does get in contact with anyone else, regardless of who they are. Web 2.0 has customized the world. It's to think about how we could have managed without Wikipedia, YouTube or Facebook or myspace or fb. Now everyone's an trainer as well as an individual. No-one knows everything and everyone knows something.

You'll be extremely pleased to know that Web 2.0 was chosen by the audience to the region of reputation. Information management was beaten for the dustbin by our over-use of manufacturers, as chosen amorously by Jonathan Kettleborough.

Top of industry was Stephen Heppell who provided a usually relaxed, humorous and thought-provoking summary of conventional and future designs in perfecting technology. Laura Overton presented us up-to-date with the Towards Maturity 2012 conventional, which provides a wide range of interesting new concepts. I particularly like their history of 'Seven missed l&D opportunities'. There was also the final of the 2012 Pecha Kucha opponents, with some amazing information. The champ was my theatrical Onlignment co-worker Phil Organic, who will now be intolerable.
