HangChat: Google Hangout on Air During a Twitter Chat

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Twitter chats have become very popular. But popularity comes at a price. Besides the large number of tweets streaming by, you end up with spammers spamming the hashtag and other unnecessary noise.

Corporate Trainer as Knowledge Broker

I've often referred to the corporate training professional as a Knowledge Broker.

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working.

Old School is History! Thanks to Hardcore History

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I FINALLY enjoyed the experience of my son understanding the powers of new media. After all the years of blogging and knowing that what the internet has become will change EVERYTHING about education, I finally had a real world experience that, while you might think insignificant, I thoroughly enjoyed.

Twitter Conversation Types and Learning

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I'm really looking forward to today's #TLDCast because I'll be hosting a book review of one of my favorite books: A Theory of Fun by Raph Koster.

Because Raph takes very complex neuroscience, cognitive psych, and other complex studies and applies them in a narrative of discovery. A journey into why some activities are fun and others are not.
