This Friday I will be speaking at the 3rd Learning & Development Forum in Athens. Virtually. From Berlin.

I don’t know Greek, so I am taking on faith that this is complementary:

eLearning-zine aus Deutschland

This morning I received a German eLearning ezine that looks quite interesting. Of course, I was drawn to this item:

Casual learning the whole week
Informal learning is considered to be more flexible

Keynote Address on Workflow Learning

Want to understand Workflow Learning and what all the fuss is about? Take twenty mintues to listen to my keynote presentation from the Workflow Learning Symposium. The Debut of Workflow Learning just went up online.

Ted Cocheu and his team at Altus Learning sync’d the slides with the video, so you can hop around (red arrow) if you get bored.

Midway through this afternoon, I checked my gmail and found an invitation from Jeff Ubois to a meeting on Open Source a few hours later at the Hillside Club, which is less than a mile from my house. How could I resist? Now I’m sitting about 5′ from the CEO of MySQL, a founder of Apache, the author of SendMail, the leader of BSD, and Kim Polese, now running a start-up Continue reading
