After e-Learning delivery and deployment, how would you drive adoption?

ID Reflections

Here's an excerpt from a post called The technology is ready. The post talks about an organization's role in the adoption of something as apparently simple as the use of Voice over IP (VoIP).

Part 3 of Interview with Virtual Worlds 3D Pioneer Randy Hinrichs

Kapp Notes

Hinrichs: The obstacles are the same as always – the technology is demanding, so make sure you have good bandwidth and a great graphic card. The obstacle is not technological, it is cultural. When we use the Internet to interact, even in something as mundane as a VoIP concall, it is pretty much the same thing. Understand cybergogy, learning archetypes, and know the evidence that helps you think about 3D technology effectively.

Is the Future of Communications Social?

Rob Hubbard

Most realtime communications between our team (all of whom are based at different locations) are via Skype which we use for chat, VOIP conference calls and sending files to one another.
