Corporate Training – Journalism or Entertainment?

Blogging is journalism

Clive on Learning

As far as I'm concerned, this is journalism - amateur journalism typically (although most blogs have ads and the most popular blogs raise considerable amounts this way), but journalism nonetheless. It's journalism. Some three years ago, when I first started blogging, the consensus seemed to be that it was only a matter of time before everybody started blogging.

I will continue to review articles from past journals that I believe help to alter how we see learning and to provide practical ideas that the average learning designer or facilitator can implement.
