There is a post out there right now about Edupunk, and how they are upset that corporate LMSs. The comment that caught my eye:
“My bias has been for a long time that an LMS is sold by and sold to senior levels in an organization, and doesn’t often involve the people who are directly trying to create better learning within the organization.”
Then I saw this link about the differences between higher ed and corporate ed. Although I disagree with #10 – I complain. 🙂
Tony Karrer picks up on the conversation, and mentions that at some point trainers are going to end up in the middle of this issue, in between users who are already using 2.0 tools in their personal learning environments and the official, corporate LMS.
So how do we design so that students can use the tools they use to learn everything else when they come to corporate training classes? I am not sure yet. I have more ideas on how to design collaborative elearning assets. I am learning stuff at school – let’s see if I am able to implement.
