    [Providers] Why Attend Conferences? UW Annual Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning’s 25th Anniversary
    As an eLearning provider, we are hearing a lot of chatter from prospects looking to transition to online education. Conferences provide a great venue to network with old colleagues and friends and meet new eLearning advocates. No doubt the anticipated 20% - 40% decline in face-to-face workshop education is causing alarm in the conference marketplace. However, I believe that eLearning managers should attend at least one industry conference a year. almost always come away with a new idea, technology, or general vision to apply to my practice. Think it includes social networking?

    [Providers] LMS For SMBs And Training Companies – A Year On, Is It Still The Same?
    It could be because training companies continue to focus on the limited area of skills they provide training on and not much has changed last year in the way that is done. About almost an entire year ago (just  five days short to be precise) I put up a post on Learning Management: What does a Training Company need an LMS for?   A year on and I was trying to review if things have changed significantly in for what a training company (or even an SMB) would need from an LMS in today’s scenario. The key points I had mentioned earlier were. Hosting and Support. Branding of the System.

    [Providers] Creating a Moodboard
    The application provides you with a canvas to create your board on, the facility to upload your own images and you get some basic editing tools, and to save the final version as a jpeg. One of my courses this year is in Website Production, and I was interested to see that the design stage included a moodboard, I was a little unclear about exactly what that meant exactly, so I decided to make a start with Wikipedia. Of course I then anticipate the next question from my students, what should we use to create a moodboard. Olioboard is a free web based “moodboard creator”.
