Today’s quote comes from the remarkablized Seth Godin. I urge you to think about this one next time you’re coming up with a project idea, or a new way to hook customers in, or a radical product concept, etc, etc.
“Over the top isn’t… over the top any more.
The bar keeps being raised. That service you thought was so remarkable is now standard. Sorry.”
The diagram you see above is taken from a post over at Learning Circuits. In it Tony Karrer discusses the transition from e-learning 1.0 to 2.0 and demonstrates the changes.
When you look at the table you’ll notice in the middle column the heading E-Learning 1.3. Is this a half-baked bridge between 2 landmarks in e-learning history? Actually no, moreover it’s probably the place where e-learning actually found it’s feet. I’d also argue that LMSs didn’t really occur until this stage either, leaving e-learning 1.0 being stuck with delivery methods such as CD, which would have made it truly one way and top-down.
To be honest most e-learning is still being created at the “1.3″ level, and I can assure you development time is not rapid in most cases.
The right column is the intriguing one as the ownership has flipped. Now learning is bottom-up and learner-driven with some of the best learning coming from colleagues and peers. In the most recent release of The Platform we deal with learning and training, with a view to getting our audience to understand the benefits of traditional and non-traditional learning.
Looking at the right column again we can see wikis, social networking, blogs, and mashups. Utilizing all these forms of learning requires a high level of interest from the learner and a deep-rooted curiosity. We termed this form of learning as “beachcombing” and you can see a video we made all about that below.
Now after watching that video surely our minds are opening up to the possibility that all those learning tools listed under e-learning 2.0 expand much further outside of the electronic world?
Has e-learning evolved so far that we should ditch the “e” like The Gorv mentioned in his comment yesterday?
Tomorrow we’ll look at this “learning” revolution.
