Treasure Hunting

Today's quest is all about collaboration and connections. Okay, maybe not face-to-face collaboration and interactions. But learning from others' experiences and seeing who else is out there.

I guess its my own "best of breed" program.

Tagging my posts with the relevant keywords was something I had left alone in more recent submissions, but I played catch-up and added a few here and there. I figured that Technorati was probably a better way of making those initial connections than just blindly googling my afternoon away. So you may see a few more links here and there on the sidebar from sites I found particularly compelling or relevant to what I'm trying to accomplish.

My hope is that traffic will grow. Comments will appear. Dialog begins. Learning and change can happen.

After all, learning is supposed to be an instrument of change.

More e-learning for Northern Ontario

I'm more focused on the corporate learning end of things, but this announcement for Northern Ontario was nice to see. To say nothing of being long overdue (and don't go dredging up your favourite boogeyman, Mike Harris....the blame list is long and distinguished)

"20 new e-learning centres to open"

Today's challenge

Adding interactivity and dynamic content to a process/best practice learning package.

How do you take a common-sense 'book' and turn it into a self-paced learning package?

In classroom settings there are opportunities for discussion and anecdotes and peer-level synergy. Even practical scenario exercises have a place.

Can this be effectively replicated in a self-paced environment?

Such is my current challenge.
