Collaborative Leverage in E-Learning

With many large businesses becoming decentralized over the last decade, the ability to collaborate across time and space is even more critical. Collaboration only can really have value in the context of a specific process. Collaboration is a behavior, not a technology, and there are various communication and coordination technologies that enable collaboration behaviors. When those behaviors occur within critical business processes and are applied appropriately, they can result in significant productivity gains.

Editor's Picks from ASTD '09

This year's ASTD show was considerably smaller than last year. But, there was a motivated group in attendance, and a some newproducts peaked our interest. 

Social Learning at Play in Pearson's Critical Thinking E-learning Portal.  At Pearson, we previewed a new online module on Critical Thinking. It is an inventive module hosting video snippets, talk show style video and scenarios. What made it stand out was the incorporation of a social learning portal. Each learner creates a Facebook like page of peers, coaches and mentors. The postings and dialogue provides a creative method of leveraging a newer informal tool to enhance the learning experience. Watch for it in 4th quarter of 2009.

Innovative Authoring at PerformTech.
This company is known for its custom content development, but the authoring tool behind the scene is very inventive. It reminds us of computer programming flow charts, allowing you to map the learning content path with a click of the button. Inserting questions, remediation steps was as simple as a drag and drop. If you haven't seen it, call them for a demo.

GoToTraining arrives from Citrix Online.
While Cisco Webex was noticeably absent at this annual event, a new entrant in the virtual training center has emerged - GoToTraining by Citrix Online.  With more than 50% of all training hours now being hosted via online, blended or virtual classrooms, GoToTraining has entered the market at a great time. They are in beta testing now, (accepting companies) and hope to launch in August 2009. Keep your eyes out for them!
