Organizations can leverage the activities that their employees are already participating in, learn more about itself, find the performance gaps, fill them and dig deeper as they repeat the cycle. I have been putting my thoughts together on this subject for a very long time, it was only in January and February of this year that I formally put those thoughts into any kind of cohesive statement. I believe there is an ongoing relationship between user-generated knowledge that occurs in social networking, knowledge management and formal learning.
…There are books that have not been written that should have been a while ago, and the one book I can at least help to write is on SCORM.
SCORM 2.x will layout how open standards will work together — but it will spurn off an open source community to develop interoperable services for learning.
I will be attending Learning 2008, and leading or co-leading two different sessions: Rapid Development and User-Generated Content.
