    The acquisition announcement has several ramifications for users and other SaaS providers alike: SuccessFactors, especially after the acquisition of Plateau and InfoHRM, faces product development, integration, and customer support challenges on many fronts. SAP has spent a decade trying to create a software-as-a-service solution, primarily to attract mid-market companies. Initially they largely failed: Business ByDesign proved too little too late. It was single-tenant in a multi-tenant world, creating an unsustainable cost structure that would have proved unsupportable. Should they?

One of the best things about being an instructional designer right now is that now more than ever we feel that our field is in the zeitgeist of what's happening in the media and technology worlds. What we do (rather, how we do it) is influenced greatly by technologies that support more flexible means of communication and collaboration. bonus: we can avoid awkward tittering by wholly avoiding the name 'Wenger' in a classroom setting).

If you were QA-ing a newspaper article, the review would of course cover spelling and grammar. But it would also cover factual accuracy, tone of voice, sources for quotations and so on.

    Some course editors not only provide you an overview of your course’s structure, but enable you to edit the course’s structure and add additional elements to it as well. You will be well served by making a habit of drafting a rough scheme of the course before starting any actual work on it. This draft should outline the main pages of the course, and will aid you all the way throughout the course creation. learning professionals call such drafts “storyboards” and use them extensively. No two storyboards are quite alike. Try to visualize the general layout of every page.

    Whenever possible, examples with commentary are also provided.

This question type works equally well whether you need to test for knowledge retention, application of newly acquired knowledge, or the ability to analyze new contexts. Due to this (and a number of other factors), multiple choice questions are the leading question type both in the corporate and in the academic sector. Do not despair though.

    Enclosure is a compelling way to provide meaning. In the very early stages of vision—before we’re really conscious of it—our perceptual processes are humming away, attempting to organize the sensory data from our eyes into something that might be meaningful. Both the Gestalt psychologists and modern perceptual researchers realized that perception tends to organize information into wholes, rather than parts. For example, you’re most likely grouping the orange shapes above into an arrow, rather than seeing them as separate elements. Grouping by Boundary or Enclosure.
