Posted by Ramesh Kumhar on May 2, 2018 9:19:16 AM

 

 

We faced several challenges working with our existing CI systems, namely Bamboo and TeamCity, while setting up our CI/CD pipelines on on-prem private cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure for our clients. To overcome these challenges we decided to evaluate Jenkins, and to our surprise everything went seamlessly. It took us some time before we could get the 'msbuild' to work. After installing Visual Studio build tools on the build servers, msbuild started working smoothly. In this blog I'll try to outline the challenges and steps we followed to get our complete CI/CD environment setup and configured with Jenkins

Challenges of tracking learner's experience and measuring its impact

Posted by Ameet Shedge on Feb 15, 2018 1:54:49 PM

Training managers are always faced with the challenges of capturing learner's experience and measuring its impact

The big questions for training development managers and their organizations are:

  • Is the training helping our business to run smoothly and grow?
  • What's the impact of the training we provide and does it align our business objectives?
  • What it ROI on the investments we have made in training tools and subscriptions?

These are frequently tossed around and with wide-ranging implications, yet as cavalier, they might seem they are difficult questions to answer, if not impossible. It would only be simpler if the training systems or tools could capture the learner’s behavior, experience, and engagement, which can then be analyzed in a way that could address these questions. Now, is there anything out there, that does this, well there is and it's in its infancy. There are specifications (xAPI) and tools build on industry standards called the "learning record store" (LRS) that could augment your LMS or the learning tools and it can track the learner's experience.

How students/learners cultivate skills and enhance their knowledge through peer learning?

StackOverflow is not merely a reference site, it is a consequence of collaborative knowledge sharing on the global scale.  It reveals a new way of sharing expertise and knowledge via a nontraditional method.  Typically, a student or learner has a problem/issue, so they search on google for answers, and wolla there is StackOverflow in the search results. 90% of the time they'll find a solution. This way of sharing knowledge and experience is very practical. StackOverflow then resulted in StackExchange which is a collection of over 100 sites and growing to share knowledge in domains other then programming
