    Just catching the swing of things and catching on slowly– my apologies for dragging on this posting. The eLearning Coach’s eLearning Technology Trends to Watch in 2011 was a very nice, very simple introduction to trends of eLearning as they where when published, but it quickly loses its scoop as it becomes outdated.  While my appetite […]

      You raised a good point: “I was still left a little disappointed that there were not references to specific websites where we could learn more about the trends (recent articles, etc. from which the trends were identified)”.
      I also agree with you that these technology trends could just be as effective as printed word, no more than that. We all have different teaching styles so some of these trends will work for us and some won’t. We can only know whether it works or not by trying it first. For that reason, I also wish that they could more specifically describe how each trend works (e.g. recent studies, articles that can support how they have selected these technology trends).

        I agree with you both, I was thinking, “Why are there no websites addressed? Do they not want us to learn more?”
        But then I asked myself, if I have to go to the websites (that were not given) then the pitch couldn’t have engaged me enough or given me enough insightful information.
        Like you stated Deb, everyone has different learning styles, so this may or may not work for everyone!

    Introduction I found the Ambient Insight executive summary titled The US market for self-paced eLearning products and services: 2010-2015 forecast and analysis helpful because it defines its scope, reports data according to narrow segments to highlight opportunities, and provides valuable data for tactical and strategic decision-making. The report defines its scope The summary defines its […]

      Thanks for this really thorough and well written review – I’ll be sure to check out this report as it seems to provide the kind of data that I’ll find useful and satisfying. I’m particularly intrigued by the focus on healthcare, as health is an area that, before this course, I found myself wondering if it could be a good area for me to apply my interests in education and technology – particularly international health and service delivery.

      Adding my comments to Allie and saying thanks for a very well thought out review. I, too, will have to look at this report a little more closely (preferably with new contacts in or is it just because I’m tired?)
      I also have the thought of perhaps forwarding the link to my administrator and IT department 🙂

      Thank You David for this informative and detailed post. I particularly appreciated your discussion/ identification of the attributes within each category: educator, technology specialist and ‘venturer’. It actually is a useful means of identifying where we are/would like to be and our specific needs.
      I had a brief look at the report, which I will also peruse in further detail later. I am heartened at the forecast and analysis at so many levels and in so many sectors. Thanks again for the link.
