Cheap and fast but not likely to show up at the antiques show 150 years from now (or to go down in your most memorable training book IMHO). And, I’m probably about to come off the same way here.

LMSs that kick ass: Mzinga
JANUARY 9, 2009
My more recent contact at Mzinga is Dave Wilkins. I’m a more recent reader of Dave’s blog and occasionally have conversations with him in Twitter. Mzinga believes that while traditional web-based training and eLearning courses have provided great ROI and cost reduction, they lack the social aspect of learning—the diversity in perspective, the insights, and the real-world stories and sharing that have always happened in a classroom. First, we think training and learning today are flawed. It’s Friday yay! Kudos Jen (if you’re out there). Thanks Dave!
