ASTD TechKnowledge 3

Survey after survey finds that PowerPoint is the most popular tool for authoring eLearning.

PowerPoint presentations with narration or good notes can capture the content of a presentation effectively. But you and I know that many PowerPoints are slapped on the web with no voice-over or notes. Trying to devine their meaning is akin to reading a newspaper written in a foreign language you don't understand.

On the flight from Orlando back to California, I leafed through several handouts from TechKnowledge, in search of the rare PowerPoint slides that were able to stand alone and convey their messages. Some of the more effective:

For success with online community, you need:
  • A clear work-related purpose
  • The right membership
  • A technologically feasible solution
  • Measurability
  • Strong facilitation
  • The ability to work asynchronously
  • To allow for non-work
  • Customizatin to the culture
  • To think through incentives

Internet Thinking

 

    Information needs to be share and unified

    Processes are based on associations, relationships and influences. They are not linear or hierarchical.

    Organizations must place the individual first, making them full partners in the enterprise.

Finally, here's an item from today's T+D Extra newsletter:

LEARNING CIRCUITS LAUNCHES NEW BLOG

Blogs (short for Weblogs) are informal Websites where people publish stories, opinions, and links--often on a daily basis. Learning Circuits's first blog began in April 2002 with commentary from a select group of industry experts. Six months and 18,836 words later, that starter blog, unfortunately, has sputtered to a halt. Now, a new Learning Circuits Blog is up and running with a few additional features that make it easy for anyone to add his or her two cents.
