Capture Examples

Tony Karrer

The primary reasons for doing the eLearning Tour was that it is hard to see examples of what is being done by fellow eLearning professionals and get a sense of the patterns that exist.

Tax Credits: The Oregon Example

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to David Campbell, who writes : > They issued $386 million in tax credits in three years.
