Dr. Jane Bozarth eLearning Expert Interview

This week I participated in an interview with Dr. Jane Bozarth. Here is what I took away from the interview:

According to Ms. Bozarth, it is often difficult for social media to become an integrated part of an office culture since many offices operate in a traditional environment. The solution?

Seek ambassadors within your organization to present your work; perhaps, others may think it is a great idea and you may get lucky! J


Ms. Bozarth, promotes “Show Your Work”. I really enjoyed reading her article “Nuts and Bolts: Narrating Our Work”. Check out here: http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/articles/984/nuts-and-bolts-narrating-our-work


Another great article she wrote is about being a “Positive Deviant”. Check out here: http://trainingmag.com/content/training-magazine-events-are-you-positive-deviant


According to Ms. Bozarth we should not wait for everyone else to do everything…we should be the change!


Ms. Bozarth recommended various blogs or resources to follow including:

Cathy Davidson http://www.cathydavidson.com/

Julie Dirksen http://usablelearning.com/

Jane Hart http://c4lpt.co.uk/jane-hart/

Donald Clark http://donaldclarkplanb.blogspot.com/

Richard Byrne http://www.freetech4teachers.com/

Follow on Twitter #Edchat, also check out their website: http://edupln.ning.com/


Like many other eLearning experts I’ve talked to during this course, Ms. Bozarth, also admits that Facebook is one of her favorite social media tools that can be used for training or eLearning. Why? Because everyone is on Facebook! Users are already comfortable with this tool! It is possible to setup a Facebook closed group, you don’t have to be friends with the people in the Facebook pages to be able to be part of the group.

Another one of her favorite tools for collaboration and eLearning is “Twitter”. Other tools she recommends to use within a course includes:

  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn
  • Google Plus
  • Google Docs
  • Skype
