When Does a Cloud-based LMS Make Sense?
Living in Learning
JULY 12, 2012
There was something about having my own staff running my own servers behind my own firewall that provided a sense of security and control. A few years ago, I am quite certain, I would have been fighting this “cloud” concept tooth and nail. To an extent it did, and the IT staff would be the first to man the ramparts to fight off having anything living outside the firewall – much less allowing anyone outside to get into our systems. I feel their concern, and I respect the need to protect the network and data resources behind the firewall.

Training to Learning – The Impossible Shift
Living in Learning
JULY 31, 2009
This linkage provides a critical thread of continuity necessary to reinforce learning in the post-training work context. Now that title should generate a ripple or two on the pond, especially when I have been so vocal about the need for just such a shift. So…is this post a confession that I have changed my mind? Not quite. Not even. If anything, I am more passionate than ever, but over the years, I have gotten smarter about moving around obstacles that stifle momentum rather than fight through immovable walls of opposition or resistance. I beg to differ. It is NOT a shift. No problem.
