The Evolving LMS Market, Part I | e-Literate - 0 views

  •  
    "As Casey Green said in my recent interview with him, the LMS space is a "market in transition." In 2005, the year that Blackboard acquired WebCT, the two platforms had a combined total of 75.6% U.S. higher education market share, and the next closest competitor had barely cracked 2% market share. Today, the situation is substantially different and changing rapidly. But the narratives around exactly what's happening tend to be off. Typically, I hear the frame as being a contest between Blackboard and "open source." Has "open source" (by which we mean Moodle and Sakai, the two open source LMSs with significant market share in the United States) made inroads into the market? If you read what the majority of sell-side financial analysts1 are writing, you may see the claim that "open source" is not putting a major dent in Blackboard. If you talk to Moodle or Sakai advocates, you might hear that they are crushing the company in sales. Neither account is really capturing what's happening in the market, so I'm going to try to explain what we know about what's really going on in a two-part series. In this post, I'll talk about what the data are telling us so far about the recent shifts in the market, describe how colleges and universities come to decide that they need to go to market for an LMS, and assess the degree to which we may see an uptick in the number of schools that decide to look around and evaluate our options. In the second post, I'll describe how the next four years of market transition may be different than the previous four and what signs we should be watching for to see which way the market is going to break."

    "Who is using Open Educational Resources?

    This post marks the official open-on-the-web style start to our JISC funded OER Impact study. The key tasks of the study being:

    * The investigation of patterns of behaviour around the use and reuse of OER.
    * Examining the impact of these behaviours on teaching and learning strategies from institutional, tutor and student perspectives.

    Our methodology is distinctly qualitative, focusing on the 'why' and much as the 'what'. Why you might be using OER rather than why they should exist.

    Teaching/Learning Activities
    What do you want to use technology for?

    To help you answer this question, we've outlined some teaching/learning activities below that are used across the disciplines and tried to suggest through examples from the Web how each might utilize a certain kind of technology or a combination of different technologies to accomplish specific learning objectives. Each example represents a different discipline, and there are over 40 disciplines represented in the examples.

    Each example is associated with one or more interactive tool, and information about each kind of technology-what it is and how to use it-appears in the technologies section.

PLEs are an Operating System for Learning « Viplav Baxi's Meanderings - 0 views

  •  
    "I think of PLEs as Operating Systems just like regular operating systems are for computer users. In fact, I call the PLE a LearnOS.

    Thinking of a PLE as a LearnOS helps me also get by the initial comprehension of what it can contain, such as tools, resources and connections, as also how it is deployed - PC, mobile and cloud. I can then move on to think about how learning will occur in this LearnOS by asking not only how the LearnOS can be organized to support my learning (feed aggregation, twitter tags and the like) in a given context, or how my LearnOS is connected to other LearnOS-es out there (PLNs), but also to thinking how my LearnOS can adapt to my learning contexts and my learning needs."

Hal Richman - Methodology - 0 views

  •  
    "Bernard Woods (Goss Gilroy Inc.) and I have developed a Methodology to provide a variety of stakeholders with a roadmap in addition to rigorous methods and tools for specifying and evaluating learning, training and development (LT&D). The Methodology gives senior managers, learning, training and development professionals, professional evaluators and similar stakeholders what they need to make a convincing case to senior management about improvements in work performance and organizational results.

    The Methodology is not positioned to replace other techniques and methods, but to complement them. We are trying to provide a more formal way for people to understand their business/work problems at a systemic level, assess if learning, training and development (LT&D) is useful for solving them and if so, provide a minimalist set of tools for evaluating LT&D initiatives that enable drawing a line of sight to organizational results.

Twitter as a Personal Learning Network (PLN) | What's New in the World? - 0 views

  •  
    "Personal Learning Networks are all the rage at the moment. As with a lot of "modern" things, they're existed for a long time but have now got a snappy new name. It used to be called "advice from friends and colleagues". But in the era of social media the word friend has taken on a new meaning. Social media has provided me with a lot of friends who I've never met and never spoken to. I've exchanged a few tweets with them, commented on or received comments on a blog article, or maybe read a few forum posts, and as a result these people are, in Web 2.0-speak, friends."

Performance.Learning.Productivity Blog: 21st Century L&D Skills - 1 views

  •  
    "If we're to believe the experts rather than the man-in the-street, the 21stCentury started on 1st January 2001 rather than on 1st January 2000. Subsequently, we're now in the second half of the last year of the first decade of the millennium. That being the case, it's probably worthwhile reflecting on the changes that have impacted our training/learning departments over the past 10 years. It's also worthwhile thinking forward to the world we're likely to be facing over the next 10 and considering what an ideal learning and development team might look like if it is to effectively navigate the future."

Fortnightly Mailing: Catching the Learning Wave - Guest Contribution by Ray Schroeder - 0 views

  •  
    "Google Wave has been much discussed and speculated about since it was first announced just over one year ago. Many in the business community have wondered how it can be used for marketing and sales. Others have wondered how it will be integrated into daily communication and collaboration. Still others who lack the patience to test a tool with more than a few layers have wondered just what it is. Google developed the product as an answer to the question what would email look like if it were invented today rather than 40 years ago? (Trapani)"
