Social recognition for learning – Mozilla’s Open Badge

Interesting idea from Mozilla – a new online standard for verifying and recognising learning. The community section of the website links to a diverse selection of organisations – Click Here.

The counterpoint is an article featured on Wired that discusses the dark side of social recognition and ‘gamification’ in call centres – Click Here.

This learning design process clearly has a way to go. I like the Mozilla approach. It will beĀ interestingĀ to see where it goes.

Look and feel for training materials – branding

I’ve been looking for examples where instructional design is implemented with a consistent ‘look and feel’ to a range of learning materials: eLearning, powerpoint, written documents, video, etc.

I’m running a project to create a style guide and have been doing background research – (it’s one of the reasons I started this blog).

Trying to find world class examples has proven challenging, however this blog from Andrew Kim is a great example of brand. He’s laid out not only the finished proposal but the background research as well. Thank you Andrew for sharing it. Click Here.
