WordPress as a VLE or CMS?
Dont Waste Your Time
AUGUST 7, 2012
My understanding of WordPress is that it is a blogging tool, but I have also used it to run corporate, commercial, charity, and special interest websites.

Not too shabby.”
The best web feature ever: Onscreen form spellcheck

First they need the means
SEPTEMBER 9, 2011
Let’s start with the means and in particular the software tools that can provide the infrastructure to support bottom-up learning: Blogs provide employees with the ability to reflect on their work experiences and to share those reflections with others who have similar work interests. Where an employee has many peers within the organisation, the blogging software can be made available inside the firewall, which has the added benefit of keeping the content away from the prying eyes of competitors.

Blogging as Reflective Practice
Adventures in Corporate Education
NOVEMBER 24, 2008
know everyone does not understand the big deal about blogging. I’ve even heard it said that if people have time to write a blog, they obviously have too much time on their hands. Well, since my blog is all about corporate education, I want to talk about how blogging is actually an educational tool. Blogging can be used as reflective practice. That article outlined the benefits to blogging in two areas: Activity. Blogging follows the reflective cycle of planning –> experiencing –> observing –> reflecting.
Software Engineering Matters!
JUNE 5, 2008
I discovered this blog, Software Engineering Matters , via one of my Google Search Bots / Google Alerts. If your discipline is software engineering, it's definitely work a look and RSS subscription.

Snake oil, clubs, and real solutions (with thanks to Matt)
SEPTEMBER 10, 2009

(He’s the kind of guy who builds a foot switch for Ableton Live [electronic-music software] out of a spare keyboard and a couple of those rubber furniture disks, so he’s a primary resource for me.).

How to blog, or, ignore my advice
DECEMBER 29, 2009
I have three real blogs, by which I mean ones I actually post things on. I have two others I received by registering at WordPress.com and Blogger.

There are two main routes to having your own blog. The simpler one, for most people, is a blog hosted on sites like WordPress.com or Blogger. Most of them don’t see their blog that way.
