Janet Clarey

An effective use of a Blog would be having the Product Manager author a series of articles around that new product. Mzinga. Probably just three years ago, if you said Element K I would have immediately thought about off-the-shelf courseware. However, Element K has made substantial, progressive improvements to their LMS, most recently by building custom integrations between Jive Clearspace and KnowledgeHub, Element K’s LMS. They announced this in October, 2008.

I dream that those who are involved in e-learning (online) and soon immersive (VR/AR/MR), learn and understand about the nuances of the various types of learning technology current and down the road.

The future is people, not technology

Jay Cross

Column on Effectiveness, by Jay Cross. Mzinga’s Dave Wilkins describes several production roles. More Human Than Human. CLO magazine, June 2009. The future is people, not technology. My last column in CLO called for the abolition of corporate training departments. Now some instructors and traditional instructional designers see me as a job threat. They needn’t worry. Enlightened e-learning requires more people, not fewer.
