Reflecting on Life

This is my obligatory end of the year post reflecting on my year in 2015. It’s not really obligatory of course, but it’s fun to look back at all my posts and reflect. Some of my posts from earlier in the year seem so old by the time the end of the year rolls around…

3 Tips For Learning Online

A few weeks ago I was contacted to give some tips for learning online. I was fortunate enough to have three of those tips included in the article titled 101 e-Learning Tips from the Experts. My tips were included in the section Study Tips for e-Learners, Tips for Online Student Engagement, and General Tips for…

Social Awareness Program at MSIDT

I recently began a new consulting job with the Master’s program I got my degree from. It’s the MSIDT program at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). It wasn’t for any typical Instructional Design work which I’ve worked on (even in my side consulting jobs) but with social media skills at the center. I’ve done a lot…

Don't control knowledge. Let it free.

I tried posting this last week but I’ve been having a hard time, so here’s my second chance to break my many-week silence. Hopefully dropping some knowledge on the knowledge-base will open the flood gates. There’s been a few times when a knowledge base has popped up in my world lately, from where I put things…

It's One Big Networked World

I started with crowdsourcing, the message I came away with there are so many problems that can be solved and tasks that can be completed, but it’s not as easy…

It's One Big Networked World

I’m going to take the next four days to post a topic a day from the MSLOC430 cMOOC I’m participating in, or maybe the correct term is reading in. I don’t feel like I’m the best participant because I haven’t joined into the co-authored document (an example of crowdsourcing I suppose) defining all these objects or…

Discussing Life

I noticed a ReTweet from Shannon Tipton yesterday morning where she was disagreeing with the flop part of the following blog post: What eLearning Trends Will Pop, Flop and Flip in 2015? (the link has been removed because it no longer exists anywhere I can find) Predictably, I disagree w/”Flop” – you? RT @Interactyx: Do…

At The Cafe Talking

Over a year ago I began to share what I am learning at the moment. I did this through the hashtag #LrnToday which I also encouraged others to do. It’s been a while since I’ve reflected on how well it has worked and how I’ve updated it. A while being since I first posted about…

Reflecting on Life

This post was originally combined with yesterday’s post, could you imagine? Too much. It has been an eventful year though, so it’s only fitting that I have two eventful posts. On With The Show I’ve made the last two months of the year an extremely prolific writing two months (for me). The reason I made…
