Yammer raises $85 million, now what? | ZDNet

Now that Yammer has raised a total of $142 million, what does this mean and where does it go?

 

Yesterday, social software maker Yammer announced it has raised $85 million, bringing its total funding to $142 million. Not shabby for a company with an estimated revenue run rate of some $30 million. The real questions though are what happens next, how does it compete with the likes of Chatter, can it remain as an independent software company or will what it does become part of the fabric of new software going forward?

Opinion: Should you care about Pinterest? | Macworld

Opinion: Should you care about Pinterest? | Macworld | digitally industrious | Scoop.it

Some call it (p)insanity. Others are straight up addicted to pinning. And still, there are those who just don’t get it.

 

Pinterest is undeniably the social networking darling of 2012. The site launched in beta-mode in March 2010 and remains an invite-only network. Despite its exclusivity, Pinterest’s user base soared past the 10-million mark in December, and according to Google DoubleClick, now has 21 million worldwide unique visitors per month. But is this site just another blip on the trend-o-meter or something that’s worth your attention? After spending some time with it myself, I found that what makes Pinterest noteworthy is not just what it does, but who uses it and why.

From Social Learning to Workforce Collaboration | Workforce Collaboration

From Social Learning to Workforce Collaboration | Workforce Collaboration | digitally industrious | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that numerous studies have shown that most workplace learning takes place outside training - the term “learning” is for many people still synonymous with training. They simply don’t realize (or value the fact) they are learning (ie acquiring new knowledge and skills) every day in everything they do – because they have been conditioned to believe that learning only happens in a classroom or an online course – that involves studying or memorization – and when a teacher is involved. ...

Create a Training Holiday

Create a Training Holiday | digitally industrious | Scoop.it

...On those long ago holidays I learned a lot about Washington...much of which I still remember, coupled with that rich memory of delicious pie. It had that impact not because it was so particularly fascinating, but because the content and the culture were always wrapped up in a memorable event. It was shared in the community, it didn't hesitate to involve emotions, it was multi-sensory, it was anticipated and remembered--all things that made it special; yet these are the things almost studiously avoided in approaches to our most challenging e-learning assignments.

 

I continuously hear complaints about the dreaded compliance training topics--both from designers who hate writing them and learners who dread taking them. I'm wondering how much more effective the task might be if we served a little cherry pie with the training. Of course I don't mean that literally, but what if we made an event of it?...

WebKit Isn’t Breaking the Web. You Are

WebKit Isn’t Breaking the Web. You Are | digitally industrious | Scoop.it
But, while IE6 may be a thing of the past, the root problem — websites that work in one and only one web browser — sadly, remains.

 

This time the culprit is WebKit, the rendering engine that powers the browsers on the iPhone, iPad and Android phones. But what’s different about this round of monoculture is that, unlike IE 6, the WebKit developers haven’t done anything wrong. It’s web developers that have created the WebKit-only web.

 

Instead of writing code that will work in any browser, which might mean adding an extra three lines of code to their CSS rules, some of even the largest sites on the web are coding exclusively for WebKit.

Oracle buys Taleo in a $1.9B response to SAP

Oracle buys Taleo in a $1.9B response to SAP | digitally industrious | Scoop.it
Oracle is buying Taleo , a “cloud-based talent management” company for $1.9 billion or $46 a share. Oracle said Taleo’s SaaS services will become part of the Oracle public cloud. Taleo could bring both more cloud credibility and more vertical expertise to Oracle’s broadening applications portfolio.

 

The news comes two months after SAP, Oracle’s chief rival in enterprise applications, snapped up SuccessFactors, a SaaS-based talent management (aka human resources management) company just down the road from Oracle’ s Redwood Shores, Calif. headquarters, for $3.4 billion. At that time, many wondered why Oracle hadn’t struck first.

Thinking About Social Media | Kapp Notes

One thing about Social Media is that new technologies claiming to be a new form of Social Media are being introduced almost daily. To help determine if a new technology qualifies as Social Media or not, Li and Benoff (2008) in their book Groundswell created a list of questions to consider when determining if technology should be included as Knowledge Media.


Ask these questions when evaluating how effective a new piece of software will be in terms of enhancing the exchange of knowledge within an organization:
1. Does it enable people to connect with each other in new ways?
2. Is sign up effortless?
3. Does it shift power from institutions to people (within the institutions)?
4. Does the community generate enough content to sustain itself?
5. Is it an open platform that invites partnership?

Strive to develop Automaticity in your learners | Kapp Notes

Automaticity can be defined as “the status of any knowledge or skill that has been used so many times that it can be activated from long-term memory and applied using minimal working memory resources.” (Clark, Nguyen & Sweller, 2006).


Skills become automatic after repeated rehearsals of the activity. Multiple instances of performing a task helps learners develop automaticity with tasks and skills. Research indicates that a task such as matching letters can take as many as two thousand practice sessions but that the result can be significant. For example, when a problem was presented to students in a form that permitted them to use automated information, on average, the problem was solved sixteen times faster than an identical problem that required the use of non-automated information (Clark, Nguyen & Sweller, 2006).
