I’m still working on my yearly post that is my eLearning Predictions. That will be coming out shortly. In the meantime, I’ve been invited to do a virtual presentation for ASTD DC on this topic. The organizer will give preference to his local members, but will let other folks attend who contact him. Here’s the information:
Ten eLearning Predictions for 2010
To kick off the new year, Dr. Tony Karrer is sharing some thoughts on what's going to be happening in the world of eLearning in 2010. Back in 2006, Tony was talking about eLearning 2.0 and it's long term impact on workplace learning. What will be similar kinds of key issues that we need to be aware of in 2010?
Tony promises to deliver a fast-paced, interactive discussion that will look at trends around social and informal learning, mobile, authoring, learning management systems, and others. Come participate in what promises to be a fun session.
This event will be held via the web on Thursday January 21 from 2:45 – 4:00 Eastern. It is being hosted by the local DC Chapter of ASTD’s Technology Learning Group. If you are interested in attending, please contact Todd Slater at firstname.lastname@example.org for webinar information.
