Reuben's message is important. The book is a light illuminating the 21st century's roadway to how learning happens in our age of digital disruption. The dude gets it. And, what he wrote, you need to read. Pay attention training world. Yo
This is where the future of on line learning is heading.
Instead, Tozman uses the Semantic Web as his paradigm. On the Web, learning takes place "accidentally" through a variety of resources, such as YouTube, social media, or, even, employee-generated instructional videos. Thus, to replace our dependence on "design," Tozman encourages us to move towards a model of "content curation" and greater "accessibility" to a Web that exists beyond the Learning Management System (LMS).
Reuben's thesis is very challenging to practitioners of instructional design. Some might say that it is incomplete, since he admits that he does not know exactly what shape "design" will take in the next few years. Still, more than any other expert on this subject, Reuben points a way out of the "closed circle," which currently traps us.
He does it succinctly and wanting more... time to order some more books to get web smart, everyone.
