I have shared, in a number of places, a diagram of Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) , which I believe visualises all the main ways we learn at work.

A lot of lovely alliteration from the learning leasers at c4lpt. Nice framework, actually: I like the value-autonomy axes here. (Is axes really the plural of axis?! Looks strange.)

Should Learning Content be in Perpetual Beta? – Guest post by Jay Cross

Should Learning Content be in Perpetual Beta? – Guest post by Jay Cross | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
What is a "beta version"? "We could take beta off all of our products tomorrow, and we wouldn't actually have accomplished anything...If it's on there for five years because we think we're going to make major changes for five years, that's fine."  Google co-founder Larry Page Beta is the last, still buggy, version of software …

Yeah, what Jay Cross said!

Jay Cross's curator insight, April 9, 2:36 PM

The meme of perpetual beta — that something’s not over with and may well get better if we work on it together — changes the relationship between buyer and seller.


When something is labeled beta, you expect it to have errors and are happily surprised if you don’t find any. Finding and helping correct flaws is one of the psychic rewards of the implicit bargain which makes the customer a happy co-developer.


Beta is an invitation for users and suppliers to co-develop improvements. Beta is a signal that the cement has not dried and you’re still open to making improvements.


Being in a beta relationship invites dialog instead of criticism. People are very forgiving if they are being listened to.
