Evaluating Facebook and Twitter for e-Learning

eFront

Facebook and Twitter. The two biggest social sites on the web at the moment (there’s also Google+, but that’s for the most part a wasteland analysts say). And we’re not just talking about self-made how-to videos (though it has its fair share of that), but also complete professional learning courses of high production value, which make money through advertising.

Administration back-end – Navigation is good, some of the features such as Best Practices from LinkedIn Learning is illogical (especially since in my test, because only one best practice had anything of use for the administrator (from the product or value add standpoint). Even then one of the pieces of content was Marketing on Facebook, another Raising Capital, neither of which seem to me to be “essentials” for executive directors.

Product Review: Knoodle

Confusing once you dive into the product – see below. Problems abound within the product – not bugs mind you, just poor processes (IMO). One of the features I do love about the product is the ability to drag and drop – yet this is the only screen you can do it from. Ability to play on the screen, rather than click Preview to do so – which is how the product is set up. Maybe send link to Linkedin or Twitter or Facebook or whatever.
