LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions
OCTOBER 13, 2011
The learners will get access to webinars, recorded webinars, videos, and other online content that they will author separately. They don't really have a tech team, so going with a hosted solution that would live at a subdomain would be best, i.e., subscribers would go to: learn.company.com in order to sign up, pay, and get access to webinars, content, etc. I'm a little concerned how well LMS solutions will handle the webinar integration and the subscriptions.

They touched on the concept that learning expectations have shifted with all of the new technology, which has caused change among those who are initially developing the content.

Clarity needed around Web 3.0
FEBRUARY 25, 2011
I like ASTD; they offer a valuable service to the industry in education, including reports, webinars, very good conferences (despite occasional hiccups, *cough* learning styles *cough*) that I happily speak at and even have served on a program committee for. When they come out with books like The New Social Learning , they are to be especially lauded. We took simulations and games out of advanced technology for the conferences several years ago when I served.
