  4. 4. E-Learning in China Before Mobile Technology After Using Mobile Technology ~28% e-Learning Corporate Training © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  5. 5. For Mobile Learning: there are two distinct potential markets such as a. The first one is the market of learning services for people that are without infrastructure (accessibility to internet and e-learning may not be as wide spread in rural or remote areas) and learners in developing economies . b. The second one is the market of learning services for people who’s jobs require them to continuously move, people learning and receiving information while visiting various sites and locations, certain types students needing individualized learning education, on the move and while on external projects. 5 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  6. 6. Mobile Technology: • In the United States the PDAs have already been used in schools and for workers on the move and this thing had significant results in terms of improved learning effectiveness. • In Europe, mobile learning is beginning to develop, and telecommunications companies such as Nokia and Vodafone have already integrated these technologies into their training and development systems. 6 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  7. 7. 2-NetBooks 7 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  8. 8. What is the Netbooks? • Netbooks are a very small, light-weight, low-cost, energy-efficient notebook • It is primarily used for Internet based services such as web browsing, web video, e-mailing and instant messaging. • Basically anything that would be required to take an e- learning course. They are also suitable for light use running office and educational software. • As these machines are cheaper than a traditional laptop, I think we will start to see these being used as training PC’s that can be moved or brought home by learners. 8 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  9. 9. 3- Learning Nuggets • A learning nugget is a small piece of content that can be created on the fly, often using rapid development tools, in response to an immediate training need. • They are small modules of learning information for people who need to learn more but don’t have much time available. • Rapid e-learning is here, companies need to be able to provide it as a service or identify why a custom built solution is more appropriate. There is a split in the e- learning industry with some still saying rapid e-learning is faster. 9 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  10. 10. Example on learning Nuggets: • Courselets : • A short, 10 to 15 minute, online training module that employees can take at their desk. It provides employees with just-in-time training without dedicating a large chunk of time to training. • The Tell-me-more below has detailed information on what courselets are and on why they are effective. • Rapid eLearning - Process so that Subject Matter Experts (SME) can quickly create courses. 10 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  11. 11. 4-Online Video: 11 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  12. 12. Online Video: • 2008 was the year that online video went big. The year saw a dramatic evolution in online video. • 2009 will bring even more success to this industry. • More people are watching online video and spending more time doing it. • Online video finally has widespread acceptance as a delivery platform. • With faster broadband and cheaper, better quality equipment the barrier to entry has been dramatically reduced, if not wiped out. 12 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  13. 13. Online Video: • The quality of video is also improving, YouTube has gone high definition, widescreen, and is now offering annotated video. Other providers are following and fast. Flash Player, the leader in online video has much improved video features, adopting the H.264 format which is fast becoming the delivery method of choice. • It’s not just pre-recorded video that is going to be big. Live streaming video will become huge in 2009, with the entry of big players like Ustream.tv. Live video is great for events and training because it leaves users feeling empowered and provides immediate feedback 13 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  14. 14. 5-Twitter: • Evan William creates software that allows people to broadcast their thoughts. He developed Blogger, the easy to use blogging tool that Google later snapped up. In early 2006 he launched a Micro Blog service called Twitter. Twitter lets people broadcast short messages over the web, email, IM and phones to anyone in the world. • The idea has really caught on with the “always on” connected crowd, and while some people love the idea of a constant stream of updates, others are appalled. • Twitter is becoming a serious platform for discourse and discussion. More than a status app, it is being used as a first alert mechanism for the dissemination of news and for immediate discussion surrounding that news. It is the coverage of news events and the continued emergence of citizen journalism that will push Twitter toward the mainstream this year. 14 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  15. 15. Twitter: • Twitter is not the only Micro Blog service out there. For instance Identi.ca allows you to create your own service with only a small amount of technical knowledge. With more ubiquitous broadband availability this type of service will replace SMS as the means of sharing thoughts, locations and opinions with friends. 15 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  16. 16. Semantic search Technologies: 16 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  17. 17. 6-Semantic Search Technologies: • The semantic web is an extension of the World Wide Web in which web content can be expressed not only in natural language. • but also in a form that can be read and understood by computers, thus permitting them to find, share and integrate information more easily. • Semantics are going to be the next big thing in search engine technology. • Google has come to dominate the search market, however Google seems to believe that the only reason people go online is to buy something. 17 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  18. 18. 6-Semantic Search Technologies: • They have made billions from advertising revenue and are now in a monopoly position. People merely looking for information use Google because they don’t have any other choice. • A human will know that mouse and keyboards are common computer peripherals, and can be categorized as such. Computers can’t make this connection on their own. Google does this via a person performing search engine optimization (SEO) on their site. SEO centers around the idea that as a business or individual, it’s important to understand the sector you’re operating in. 18 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  19. 19. Semantic Search Technology: • The semantic web will provide a formal description of concepts, terms, and relationships within a given domain of knowledge . • The semantic web, will not destroy Google. • Google makes some great products and if any start up company does produce a compelling semantic search capability, Google will more than likely buy them. • Google does perform better than it’s competitors Yahoo or MSN, but there is always room for improvement. 19 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  20. 20. What does Semantic search Technology have to do with e-learning? • As our e-learning libraries start to grow to include assets in many formats and from many different locations, we need to be able to search these effectively, using traditional searches won’t fly, semantics are the best answer. In 2009 we will hear a lot of hype about semantics but the killer application or product has yet to be found. If you would like to investigate this area more take a look over Read Write Web a fantastic Web 2.0 site. 20 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  21. 21. 7. Browser War • We are currently in the middle of the second browser war. Since Microsoft’s Internet Explorer won the first war against Netscape Navigator many browsers have challenged the incumbent. Firefox, Opera and Safari are the three that have continued to gain an increasing share of the browser market. • Numbers have always been disputed but in the past few months we have seen Microsoft release beta 2 of Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla update Firefox to version 3 and Google arrive with its own browser for “a new age of rich internet applications” Chrome. Google even took an unconventional approach of describing how Chrome works in an online comic strip, available here 21 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  22. 22. Browser War: • Now in an unprecedented move only 100 days and fifteen updates later, Google has taken the “beta” label off Chrome. Given that the company has traditionally become known for keeping products like Gmail or Google Docs in perpetual beta, it is really putting pressure on it’s competitors to innovate or lose market share. • The exciting thing about all of this for 2009 is that all the main browsers now contain tools for sharing and consuming linked data online. Take for instance the Accelerators in Internet Explorer 8 which let you complete browsing activities like getting directions, translating words, emailing your friends, checking Facebook and more in just a few mouse clicks. 22 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  23. 23. Web Browser: • It’s not clear which browser will win the war, but we will soon be at a browser agnostic crossroads, where any content will run in any browser - at least on the desktop for now. • It is hard to see the IE monopoly crumble overnight, most users don’t know or even care that a better option exists. And why should they switch? Many of the problems you may have heard people complain about with IE 6 have now been resolved in newer versions. Currently I enjoy using Flock which is a Firefox variant that has great social features to keep in touch with colleagues and friends. 23 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.

  24. 24. 8-Open Educational Resources: http://www.doag.org http://www.wikieducator.org http://www.collegeopentextbooks.org 24 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  25. 25. Open Education Resources: • Today it is estimated that there are already more than 250 providers of commercial Learning Management Systems. In addition, there were recently identified more than 40 open source LMS offerings (some of the most well known are Moodle, ILIAS, eduplone, Claroline and SAKAI). • Most of these products have extensive developer communities and present strong arguments for considering open source applications like an alternative to commercial products. Some of the criteria that are in favor of making a decision regarding an Open Source software applications are related to cost savings, stability, performance and access to code. 25 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  26. 26. Open Education Resources: • On the other hand, for ensuring that users in the near future as well as the longer term have access to the best available applications, these Open Source software applications should be built on open standards. • It remains to be seen if open source e-learning technologies will capture the current or future market share from commercial providers, but the important thing in the process of making a decision regarding the adoption of a certain e-learning software for education is to consider all software options and make a choice based on their merits. 26 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  27. 27. 9- Simulations in e-learning process • For a number of years, simulations have played an important role in the training activities of certain sectors, like the defense, aviation and aeronautical industries in several countries. They were not adopted until now on a large scale as learning tools due to some factors like the cost of development and the lack of tools for developing high-quality simulations. These days we are in a different situation and simulations are being adopted in other industries and for a broad range of skills and competence development. 27 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  28. 28. Simulations in e-learning process • Technology and cost barriers are continuing to shrink, opening up the potential for wider adoption of simulation technology. • Today, computer technologies, such as Macromedia Flash, have become ubiquitous and e-learning vendors with simulation- development expertise are trying to offer more industry- and topic- specific simulation templates. • There are still barriers to be overcome, particularly in terms of design innovation, but computed mediated simulations are expected to gain a larger share of education and training activities. Simulations may offer advantages over handbooks and they can complement lectures, demonstrations and real world practice opportunities. 28 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved. Thomson NETg KnowledgeNow is a service mark of Thomson Learning, Inc.
  29. 29. Simulations in e-learning process • The market for these kind of learning services will probably continue to grow as simulation technologies become more sophisticated and more cost effective to build. 29 © 2006 Thomson NETg, all rights reserved.
