Synchronous Software Scavenger Hunts
JANUARY 3, 2011
If I’m doing software application training, doing it as a webinar isn’t really my first choice. I built these questions as a poll with multiple choice options.

I disagreed; I think you can teach skills with webinars if you plan the interactions correctly. The Questions.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome."
