Modeling a Training Framework

Training Framework

I was provoked into this blog post by none other than the eLearning Provocateur, Ryan Tracey. I do agree with the fact that you have to take the good with the bad when speaking of frameworks, but my caution is in that there’s usually more bad than good and it’s increasingly more difficult to separate…

I sat down this evening to write a post I’ve had in my idea pad for some time. I was going to write about mobile and the enterprise. Tonight I feel unmotivated to write about either of those. Sometimes a topic sounds of great interest, and other times your brain isn’t in that same through…

Like Pablo Picasso always said: [box icon=”http://www.technkl.com/wp-content/uploads/quote.png” border=”rounded”]Good artists copy, great artists steal.[/box] My inspiration came from a combination of a template redesign panel at work and the org chart I created for a…

The Biggest Fad of L&D

MOOC

I recently read a post about Fads in L&D from my good friend Con (aka @LearnKotch). On some of the points of this post I agreed, but others I think needed a bit deeper deconstruction and more seeking of meaning. By this, I’m speaking about MOOCs. I recently wrote about my experience in a Coursera…

MOOCs Have a Long Way To Go

My second MOOC is nearing completion, I’m in the final week. This is my second experience in a MOOC and I’ve taken different approaches this time around.
