The Learning Circuits

I've been moderating the Big Question for more than four years at this point. In the past few months, activity (posts, comments, comments on posts) on the big questions has seen a big drop.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

The big question: choosing tools

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for July is 'how should e-learning developers choose their authoring tools given the proliferation of tools on the market?' Nevertheless, I believe I should address the Big Question in a more measured way than in last week's rant, so here goes. The answer to the question, of course, is that it depends on what you are trying to create. Well, I posted on this subject just last week (see Confused of Brighton ) and even listed my own top ten tools , authoring or otherwise, in a subsequent post.
