Did you learn something at DevLearn this year that opened your eyes? Did you learn something that could make your life easier or save you time?

If so, please add a comment to this post and share your thoughts. This will help us share our great experiences with those who couldn’t make it to San Jose this year.

So, what did you learn?

I was astounded at the great leaps Adobe has made in Premiere for auto-transcriptions on the fly of videos.

I was worn out in a good way by all of the fantasticinformation I can immediately put to use learned at David Metcalf’s and Judy Brown’s Mobile Learning Intensive (full day). Clark Quinn added to the session as well.

So far…so fabulous!

Loved all the new features of Captivate that were demoed. *Really* loved the demo showing we can embed our own variables in the Captivate dictionary files for Captivate ‘next’. Gread job Adobe!

Culture for sharing and openness is critical to the success of Learning 2.0.

Here’s a funny observation from somebody during a session on social media / learning 2.0 / informal learning: If we show the learners how to better connect with each other to learn information, we may be working ourselves out of the equation. “If we teach them how to fish, they’ll no longer buy fish from us!” 🙂

That was a great comment, must have been a consultant.

My favorite quote of the day came from Tim O’Reilly, “You don’t incent them, you just make them do it.” I loved that. Although it may almost seem mean, he is right. Take away the old and replace with the new. Don’t put social learning in addition to what they do or they won’t use it.
