Project K - The Collaborative Learning Environment

I have spoken at many conferences about the need for new modern learning environments, championing a more loosely coupled information discovery canvas that blends informal and formal learning assets along with WEB2.0 features such as tagging, comments, ratings, and contributions. Admittedly it was hard for some in the learning industry to get their heads around what this really meant and how it would affect the learner and maybe more importantly (in their mind) how it affected them. Traditionally the learning professional was the ultimate mediator of knowledge between those who had it and those who needed it. In the new world of learning, the consumer of knowledge can now connect directly with the publishers of knowledge and can easily and often switch roles with the other.


Well I was not just flapping my lips when I spoke of these new environments, we were busily experimenting and building out a platform that would provide this new learning environment. We call it our collaborative learning environment (CLE). We have rolled it out to all our employees & partners worldwide to rave reviews and awards and soon it will be available to our customers.I thought I would share with you some screen shots of "Project K" (our internal code name).... click to see full image

Interesting, my 11 yo daughter recently asked me to teach her how to program, or in her words; how to use a computer properly. The problem I must overcome in reaching across the chasm; computers were much simpler when I learnt, how do I get that instant gratification or result that drives one to experiment more.
