The e-learning fieldbook

Clive on Learning

This book is far too heavy to take with me on my travels, so I skimmed through it sitting on the sofa, looking only occasionally to check the score in the England v India cricket match. This is an excellent effort from Nick and some 30 of his colleagues at Deloitte Consulting and I can't understand why I haven't come across it before. What about the book?

Resources for the LMS Selection Process

Kapp Notes

In late 2004 and early 2005, I did a series of articles for eLearn Magazine on the vendor selection process covering vendor selection writing the RFP and other elements of the process. Tony Karrer over at eLearning Technology has a great idea, he is gathering resources for a presention he giving by asking readers to contribute resources. The presentation is on Learning Management Systems and Tony feels the topic is a little boring so he wants inputs from readers. He is listing his notes and thoughts in his blog and asking for responses and input.what is missing, what needs emphasis.etc.
