Become a CBPN E-Learning Instructor

The CBPN site has now been upgraded to integrate an LMS – Learning Management System.

This means it now combines social networking features with those for creating e-learning courses.

Social Learning Platform

Digital guru Dion Hinchcliffe defined this combination as “Social Learning”, the wholesale digital transformation of education, based on:

“models for learning that are more interactive, community-based, peer-produced, and individually-guided. Learning from internal experts, group conversation, and through shared media such as photos and video”

As Dion describes:

This is sharp contrast to the digital era, where knowledge is pervasive, instantly searchable, consumable on-demand, and kept continuously up-to-date by millions of daily global contributors to the online commons. This allows learning — for better or worse, depending on the critic — to be far more situational, on-demand, self-directed, infinitely customized, even outright enjoyable, depending on the user experience, all of which leads to more profound engagement of learners.

In addition, the rise of social networking technology has allowed people with similar learning interests to come together as a group to share knowledge on a subject — and perhaps even more significantly — to express their passion for an area of learning. This can create deeper, more intense, and more immersive educational experiences within a community of like-minded learners.

Solution Ecosystem

The overall goal of the CBPN is to harness this capability to act as a practical solutions ecosystem, cataloging the skills and blueprints of commonly needed solutions and providing the associated learning resources that define how to adopt them – Furthermore within the context of a social network, also connecting learners directly with the experts and partners that can support that adoption.

Learn at your leisure

Courses blend together online courses, video content and other engaging media, with curriculum able to be broken down into manageable bite size chunks (“micro learning”). Digital Badges reward these small steps of progress.

Modular solutions curriculum

The CBPN specializes in the full spectrum of skills required to achieve large scale enterprise transformation through Cloud adoption, and our learning curriculum will be developed to reflect this, offering modules of courses that can be combined to support a variety of transformation journeys, such as:

  • Cloud Provider specific – Eg AWS and Azure Cloud Solution Design. Patterns and practices for building enterprise solutions on the AWS and Azure Clouds.
  • Cloud Native Enterprise – How to entirely modernize your development practices to emulate the digital native pioneers like Netflix, embracing containers, microservices and continuous deployment.
