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."

Our webinars have been successful by our standards and for the most part, we've been early adopters of the technology. tend not to use a lot of the different features, but certainly like to having polling, recording, chat, screen sharing.

It’s impossible to support this through a programme of self-paced e-learning modules and/or a few webinars , because these are passive learning events (and no, the quiz in the module and the poll in the webinar doesn’t make it active). wish more learning and development staff would look beyond the typical webinar and self-paced modules and explore approaches that allow for more depth and collaboration.
