The second part is a bit of evangelism hoping that more organizations will follow the path foreseen by my Internet Time Alliance colleagues, and move beyond just training to covering informal learning.

Training: The Value of Assessments
I Came, I Saw, I Learned
NOVEMBER 7, 2011
Although I do know of at least one training company that offers assessments and feedback after the class, I am deducing that conducting assessments is not the norm. I have read a couple of articles--and one book--saying that we will need to start proving that our training is effective by providing after-the-class assessment. Training on Trial , by Jim D. And finally, have those new behaviors resulted in the business results that were the ultimate goal of the training?

OCTOBER 13, 2011
With one day's work, I had trained hundreds of people. Nevertheless, asynchronous training has some pretty compelling advantages. But the reason I am thinking about all of this today is that I was recently asked how to show that live, classroom training still has an advantage over eLearning.

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

I also teach the Writing Training Documents and eLearning Scripts class. by Jennie Ruby. New Year's Day is the proper noun naming the day we celebrate the new year.

When wishing someone a happy new year, the phrase is capitalized and does not need the possessive apostrophe: Happy New Year!
