Jay talked about what were Disruptors doing differently? Jay provided several insights for the book The Innovator’s Dilemma:

  • Ignore the key metric of the industry
  • Lab behind in almost every way
  • Stay lean and risk-tolerant
  • Focus on the one are in which they outperform the market leader
  • Broad search for a segment of the market that values their strength above the Key Metric
  • As new technology improves, expand foothold

GoKart

  • An experiment in self-disruption
  • While options for delivering training online has exploded, testing is still difficult and time consuming
  • No user management or Registration Tools
  • No content development tools
  • Limited reporting
  • Almost no configurable Options
  • No SCORM, AICC or xAPI support
  • Ridiculously easy to create test (or survey) ,deploy it and generate a report.

    Currently in pilot mode, Rachel talked about an instructor site issued to layout plans for courses, will eventually have all instructors use the site. Prepared for the pilot by doing live demos to educate the team, also by using the technology for live meetings and posted tips about the product they were using.

    When instructor did not participate, students did not participate. Also found that the more people in a site the more participation you get. Can’ wait for the first session to start the dialogue–start about a week before the session to get people involved.

    Mark Burke of ThinkID8 talked about the need to help our learners think and look at content differently. When we think we make distinctions, we think systemically (whole and part), Relationships and discussion of Perspective.

    When are learners thinking about the content until it starts to build knowledge.

    Mark giving us our exercise related to Thinking and ID.
