E-Learning Predictions for 2007
Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Lisa Neal, Editor-in-Chief of E-Learn Magazine, once again, got a slew of international experts in e-learning to give their predictions for the coming year--i.e., 2007. Experts such as Donald Norman, Richard Mayer, Elliott Masie, Stephen Downes, Saul Carliner, Richard Larson, Allison Rossett, my good buddy Jay Cross, Margaret Driscoll, Mark Oehlert, Ellen Wagner, Jonathan Levy, etc. My lame predictions were as follows:

"With the push toward Web 2.0 technologies, Time magazine recently named "you" as the person of the year for 2006. In the world of learning, this signifies the growing attention toward personalizing and customizing learning and placing the learner in charge of her own learning activities. In 2007, we may further recognize this by renaming "the Web" as "the Web of Learning." In effect, when it comes to training and education, no longer is the Web simply "the Web." Instructional models are beginning to reflect this trend by thinking deeply about pedagogy and the learner within e-learning, not simply technology."—Curt Bonk, Professor, Indiana University, USA

You can find the rest of them at: Lisa also has an interview with Donald Normal at

Enjoy! Perhaps think of your own predictions and post them in a response to this blog post.
