Links from Corporate Learning: Trends and Innovations Day 1

The free online conference for Corporate Learning started on Thursday (it continues next Monday and Tuesday). So far, I’ve only been able to attend two sessions, one presentation on Web/Learning 2.0, and one Q&A/Discussion session following up on that presentation, both led by Tony Karrer. Unfortunately, I missed everything on Friday. Good thing it’s all being recorded!

I thought it was really a good way to do things, though my schedule wasn’t cleared as well as I had planned, so I had a couple of interruptions. That’s the downside of attending a session at your desk – people can still find you.

I found it challenging to pay attention to the back-channel chat as well as the main presentation. My brain couldn’t keep up with the discussion in both modes simultaneously. That difficulty became a topic we discussed in the second session, and about which Tony subsequently blogged. I’m not sure what the solution is, because I think the chat, moderated correctly, adds a significant amount of content that can be reviewed, and extended, later.

Good points and discussion all around, though. Below are the links I pulled from the sessions. Thanks to all who shared! Hopefully I’ll get some time soon to really look at each site and post my thoughts.
