  • Based on what you’re looking at, not so much you as a person
  • This isn’t as obvious, I’m a nit picker so I tend to sit looking at these ads. Why me? Did PointlessBlog pay for everyone in my area to see this? Everyone in my area of age x-x? Everyone who also “liked” certain other bands? Which bands? Clearly they didn’t parse my post a few months ago about the terrible sound set up at T5…
  • is why I have 3 different browsers on my computer, always give people an escape route.
  •’s our turn. Really, any good teacher or facilitator does this already. They don’t scale. We need ways to reach people at much larger scales in better ways. The technology is here, we can start doing this in the real world. But how, where, why? Performance support, solve real world problems. Compliance training is not a good one to play with. Try something that actually matters to the bottom line. Simple things like:OnBoardingSupporting tasks in the job role (I know this person needs to do X, they have role Y, and they have not yet done Z)
  •’s a lot of training that goes into putting a group of people in an underwater vessel for a long period of timeStory:200 people killed in 1988 when a sub mistakenly shot down an Iran Air flight over the Persian Gulf
  • about the stress here, what they could possible remember from their mnemonics? Stress, lack of resources, lack of time, requirement to make a decision. Can they remember things they learned in a safe, structured, not stressful environment?This is the exact case they studied. Studied training before a mission, after a retrospective, sending them into a simulation with a handbook of everything, and a different ways of supporting decision making on board.
  • conclusion makes a lot of sense. Put small bits of information right next to where they’re already working.
  •’ve got the activities, you’ve got the people. Look at all of the places that could passively offer help, that could have search boxes.
  • Explain that it means we decided to capture activities in general and make the data interoperable, not the content.
  • The real world: With Tin Can, a few vendors have taken steps towards personalization with Tin Can. Metryx has a prototype, some have started building systems and connecting them in ways that will allow personalization.
  • Short cycle, if you will.
