If you'd like to share your thoughts on the podcast, you can find us on Twitter @Ross__Dickie and...

On this week's podcast, Ben Betts from HT2 Labs and Andrew Downes from Watershed join Ross G and Owen to ask what opportunities xAPI creates. If you'd like to share your thoughts on the...

96 — Blockchain for L&D (Yes, really!)

5/22/2018
More
Blockchain is an open, distributed ledger, that records transactions in such a way that it is nearly impossible to edit. That might sound technical, but it creates a level of trust that could reconstruct the architecture of the internet and change the nature of banking, government and education. Will this foundational technology have an impact on Learning and Development? In this week's podcast, aNewSpring's Ger Driesen joins Ross G and Owen to discuss. If you want to share your thoughts...

92 — Best of breed ecosystems vs the LMS

4/24/2018

85 — In defence of microlearning

3/6/2018

This week’s podcast covers the thorny topic of microlearning. We struggle to even define microlearning, so does the term have any real value? Is it ‘chunking’? ‘Performance support’?
