Forecasts for 2020

Forecasts for 2020

I love forecasts. Forecasts that always pick the weather wrong or forecasts for the future that either hit partially or never, but you dream, that maybe, just maybe that LaserDisc you bought for $10 might be finally hitting its stride, 30 years later. In late 2009, I did my first forecast on this blog.  Then…
Halloween Edition – Tricks and Treats

Halloween Edition – Tricks and Treats

As a kid growing up, our house had a lot of pictures of clowns. Framed no less, some innocent enough, others downright weird.  When the movie Poltergeist came out with the clown part in it, yeah, that was it for me.  From that moment on, clowns were not my friends. Nowadays, frightening clowns are everywhere. …
2020 – The Year of the Hub

2020 – The Year of the Hub

Initially I was going to write about my forecasts for 2020. Then I realized that the post would mainly focus on one major trend that will impact the space in such a way (good, I believe), and thus as a result, decided to hold off on my forecasts for 2020 – until Oct. As part…
Content – Change the Narrative

Content – Change the Narrative

It was finished. All I had to do was click publish, but then something happened. Dinner. Afterwards, I started to question the post.  Too many times I find that when talking about content, 3rd party content providers, content driven strategies from learning system vendors (which is quite hot) and marketplaces place more of a general…
Embrace Training in ED and HigherEd

Embrace Training in ED and HigherEd

I’m sure it happens to you.  There you are at work, when you ask yourself, how would Plato handle it? What would Peter the Great do in this situation with your missing lunch, that was there just an hour ago waving at you in the fridge? Perhaps in the next few weeks you will visit…
Grids are gone, Welcome2 T-Quad

Grids are gone, Welcome2 T-Quad

I’m sure you have heard of this old ditty from the days of past, “Ol’McDonald had a grid, e-i-ee-io. And on this Grid he has some vendors, e-i-e-i-o.  He had vendors in this quad, he had vendors in that quad and didn’t have your vendor, e–i-e-i-o.” As you can see Ol’McDonald was a traditionalist.  He…
Perception in the E-Learning World

Perception in the E-Learning World

Hyundai had a problem.  They were about to launch a luxury vehicle in the 40K range, in the United States to attract the customers of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus (to name a few).  They recognized though that these same customers were unlikely to buy because they would be unlikely to have a Hyundai in their…
Quarter 1 Funding For E-Learning 2019

Quarter 1 Funding For E-Learning 2019

If you have been Rip Van Winkle then you are unlikely to be aware of that enormous amount of funds that have been raised in 2018 and early 2019.  The numbers can be and are quite staggering.  Most folks would assume that every vendor (in order to do X) are seeking funding, but that just…
2018 Turkey Awards for E-Learning

2018 Turkey Awards for E-Learning

I have the most important shirt of the past four decades.  The shirt that announced on that terrible day, the turkey drop of WKRP in Cincinnati.  Who can forget the live feed of Les describing the ill-fated promotion.   If you have forgotten, no worries – here it is   While Ben Franklin was turning over…
State of the E-Learning Industry 2019

State of the E-Learning Industry 2019

Normally, folks write up a state of the industry at the end of that year (as I did for 2017).  But as with everything else, thinking out of the box, screams for a tweak.  And thus, comes the State of the E-Learning industry as rumble forward with 2019. What I have seen so far (covers…
