DevLearn Day 3 (Last Day) Highlights – Tools and Tips For Making Learning Social

eLearning Guild DevLearn 2011 Day 3 Mindmap

Here below is the download link for the Day 3 mindmap notes I took from the sessions I attended on the last day of DevLearn last week.  If you were at DevLean (let's connect!) then you'll remember Day 3 was a short day.  So, not surprising, you'll see only two sessions in these notes.

I liked both sessions.  Terrence Wing's session on Facebook - Fad or Powerful Learning Engine was really helpful to see what else is possible on a Facebook Page when you integrate iframed learning objects into it.  Something new I hadn't considered previously was the ability to integrate an Articulate Presenter learning object into a Facebook Page.

Meanwhile, after an admittedly lackluster start to their presentation, I found myself ultimately drawn in to David Schnurman and Jeff Reekers' tips about how they implemented social learning into their online platform at  Their site for CLE- (Continuing Legal Education-) based training has a compelling Freemium model; essentially, Lawline provides their educational video library for free while monetizing it lawyers pay for certification.  Take a look at my notes from their session.  As you do, pay special attention to their suggestions about 3 Influential Movements in Social Learning, as well as the section on How You Can Make It Easier to Learn (Socially).
