Evolving the E-Learning Experience for the 21st Century

Your end users make up that mass, and a statement I hear often is that people aren’t staying in the systems to fully benefit from it. The growing number of businesses leaving Microsoft Outlook to Internet e-mail is amazing. While there are a couple of vendors out there who have incorporated e-mail that can go to outside to people, rather than just within the learning management product, the overall space isn’t doing it. It is time to remove the blinders.

The site itself is a trove of information for those who really want to explore and understand the large range of requirements, from IT to public accommodations. Fortunately for those of us in eLearning, a secondary government website has been created to focus on the IT aspect of the overall ADA – Section508.gov. which is especially welcome since each federal government agency seems to have its own subset of what it considers required and optional 508 compliance.

FlashCard Friends does a lot of what you'd expect in terms of creating Flash Cards for students. It's well designed and very easy to use. It also does some interesting things: Allows users to categorize flash cards, mark them as being associated with particular text books, and then helps with the sharing of content.

Being Thankful: E-Learning Thoughts

eLearning 24-7

A time to get together, relax and over gorge on food – whatever it might be. You watch a couple of football games, normally including the lousy Lions (not this year, though) and grumble to yourself whether you should eat that last piece of pumpkin pie or not (I always eat it).
