Tony Karrer

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

Initially, the conversation was about having learning content appear on the enterprise portal. Many LMS vendors provide portlets, gadgets or widgets that allow for access of learning content (most often meaning courses and courseware) through the corporate portal.

Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints

Nigel Paine

It needs time to embed too because when it starts, there will be an inverse ratio of information and chat to solid content and learning or, if you like, fluff to substance. Why is social networking important when the technologies have downsides and the rules have not yet been firmly established?
