Yesterday's blog post
Learning with e's
MAY 27, 2011
But are you as good as your last blog? Does yesterday's blog post still hold currency or must you continually press forward to write better, to expand on your ideas and elaborate your understanding of your subject? But some old ideas are fine, and the great thing about academic blogging is that the more you write, the greater will be the repository of content you have written.

Conflicting personas: social media as an ‘AND’ role (initially titled ‘AND’ job which is entirely inappropriate, even for this blog)
DECEMBER 29, 2009
You can teach people instructional design without having an instructional design blog but I don’t think it’s as easy to teach people ‘business 2.0′ You know one of those brief tweets or status updates that can easily be lifted from bigger, continuous conversations you’re having with online friends and followers?

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
MARCH 16, 2009
News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. But is this gradient a fair representation? The real world.
Effective virtual facilitation
OCTOBER 13, 2009
Perhaps other courses, websites, discussion forums, podcasts, blogs etc. As virtual classes rapidly become de rigueur , the need for an effective virtual facilitation framework accelerates.

Five Years of Blogging
DECEMBER 26, 2011
Five years ago today, I published my first two posts on this blog. I have done better in 2011, with 52 posts, but one of my goals for 2012 is to blog more regularly. Monthly views plateaued for most of 2009 and 2010, but started increasing again in 2011 as I posted more often. When I started this, I had no idea how much I would learn through blogging and how many wonderful people I would get to know. I’m a better instructional designer today because I’ve been blogging for five years. Thank you for reading, commenting, blogging, and sharing.

Elements of a Virtual World/Metaverse
JANUARY 29, 2009
capabilities of wikis or blogs where changes, updates and additions are easily made to web sites without the contributor needing to know HTML or any programming language.

What did 100 blog posts bring me?
Challenge to Learn
APRIL 7, 2012
When I started my blog in December 2009 I was curious what it would be like to blog and I wanted to improve my English (I’m still working on that). My blog now has an average of almost a 100 views per day. The fact that you have an audience makes a big difference, it turns your blog from a diary into a publication and most important: you get feedback. I use my blog to try out ideas. The first time I used my blog for this purpose was when I became CEO of easygenerator. I write posts too for easygenerators company blog. Feedback.
