  • Important Concept – Cloud Computing: provides for applications and services through the world wide web. The computing behavior is virtual with instantaneous provisioning to meet the scalability and flexibility needs of users. Collectively the shared resources are symbolized by a "cloud" - a metaphor representing the intangible, yet universal nature of the Internet. Simplifying user networking, the cloud means sharing and moving information more economically and effortlessly with security and velocity.
  • Start with what “knowledge transfer” represents. In organizational learning terms, it is the practical and concerted processes used to organize, create, capture, and distribute knowledge while also ensuring its searchability, accessibility, and availability for users. (Wikipedia 2011 with Rick’s modifications)In the world of formal learning we have adapted and innovated means to construct, create, manipulate, and make accessible content through technology and have deployed it principally at the desktop and laptop. Why?
  • Many organizations invest in sophisticated technology, like LMS or CMS, and believe that with the systems there comes a prepared solution for how knowledge assets end up being where the organization and users want them. This view seems to be a particular truism for learning experiences – as in “we have an LMS that does this”, or “we have a content management system that does that”. It begets a notion that “technology” is somehow the solution. The reality is that you are now the solution to how knowledge moves. You are a “node” in a network of knowledge. We all are part of. And, the “Cloud” is the great enabler and equalizer of connectedness. The “Cloud” is a way to think about and approach how to transfer knowledge. It’s all about a new digital landscape – a Cloud eco-system.

    • 1. Out of the Clouds Information and Communications for Knowledge Transfer The combination of technology and information resources are defining the term “intelligent content engineering”.Cloud Stage Presentation, March 22nd at 3:00by Rick Wilson, Intelligent Content Strategist
    • 2. What is the Cloud?1 No Dorothy, this is not Kansas; nor is it Oz for that matter. “Cloud computing provides for applications and services through the world wide web. The computing behavior is virtual with instantaneous provisioning to meet the scalability and flexibility needs of users. Collectively the shared resources are symbolized by a "cloud" - a metaphor representing the intangible, yet universal nature of the Internet. Simplifying user networking, the cloud means sharing and moving information more economically and effortlessly with security and velocity.” Rick Wilson from “The New Culture of Content” – coming in late 2012
    • 3. Why the Cloud for Knowledge Transfer? The most dramatic innovations in knowledge transfer occur 2 because of the interactions between humans and computers. Satisfies needs for platform and infrastructure with less investment and smaller TCO. Is a “service-on-demand” and “pay for it by use” approach with various deployment models Scales to meet any data requirements and is well suited for managing flexible content delivery – reach, device, and throughput. Works well for the informational demands of modern businesses.Start world interpretation of we have adapted and innovated means to construct, create, manipulate, and make accessible contentIn thewith anof formal learning“knowledge transfer”.

    • 4. What’s the point of the Cloud? It’s the collisions across our knowledge3 networks that are crucial to learning. You
    • 5. What is a Cloud eco-system for knowledge transfer? It’s the age of planetary computing with everyone interconnected in a brutally efficient4 cloud-based infrastructure focused on how information moves among us. Unified: Supportive: Increases the value of Recognizes needs of interactions with assets users by responding with accessible through the relevant information and various types of portals resources Personalized: Collaborative: Provides complex logic to Enables exchanges with increase value of how others via formal and constituents interact with informal channels and online resources and each processes other Intelligent Cloud Global: Eco-system Intelligent: Supports and manages Leverages smart localization and location technology to expose requirements of users and exploit access and use of resources Resourceful: Adaptive: Contains resources to Identifies dynamics of empower participant user interaction and experiences and recommends adaptation determine needs of accordingly users
    • 6. A Cloud-based Business CaseWhere the Classroom is in the Clouds Intelligent Cloud Eco-system
    • 7. What does this cloud-based solution do?Target markets for content include: The model is working to foster lifelong learning for professionals, who have to comply with requirements and achieve certifications in 1. Content for industries and professions with regulatory their job or business, as well as to foster individual development and compliance certifications among those seeking to advance their careers. 2. Content requiring mandatory completion for job readiness or job qualification The approach offers an online continuing education infrastructure 3. Content requiring verification of use and user that is enjoyable, easy to use, accessible, comprehensive, and industry-approved and sanctioned by certifying authorities. 4. Education and training necessitating authentication of participants 5. Interaction demanding collaboration and resource exchangeNotable learning experience features include: 1. Conducting a live classroom broadcasted virtually with real-time remote interaction of participants 2. Recording and archiving sessions edited for strategic knowledge asset use 3. Delivery of experience online to any device 4. Ability to associate and integrate other resources in the learning 5. Individualized and personalized content management 6. Connection of users and groups to introduce informal knowledge exchange and ad hoc exchangesKey functions include: 1. Distributed control and administration of learning for content and learner management 2. eCommerce structure offering end-to-end monetization in both BtoB and BtoC models. 3. Direct relationship with certification authorities for immediate reporting of completions 4. Plug-in data feeds to all HR and LMS systems
