We’re here to help you get ahead. Part of the formula is making informed choices. So here’s some information you climbers should know. It’s also useful information for those who screen the ones being considered for that notch position.

Elearning Readers’ Choice Awards Nominees

Finalists in the Elearning [Readers’ Choice] Awards were announced in December 2007 by The nominees range from four to six participants in 12 categories, which are:

  • Best LMS

  • Best Leadership
  • Best Soft Skills

    about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best
    in its field. Very good blog!

    • There is a Search this site form on the right-hand side of the blog. Directly under that is a button that says “Follow This by Email”. Click on that button, insert your email address, and then click “Save”.

      If you want the content sent to your mobile device, you can also use a Kindle subscription to do so. It’s just $0.99 per month with a two-week free trial period.

  8. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Thank you for commenting, Lamont. Your observations are really appreciated.

      I’m not sure of what you mean in regard to better spacing because I don’t know how you’re viewing the content nor which browser. And now that it’s also available on e-readers such as Kindle, the display will change again. You’ll need to help me out a little more.

      You also raise a critical point about presentation of the content. When I write, I’m furiously trying to get the information out to you readers so that it can be used right away. I feel as though I’m talking to you and you can hear my voice. As an experienced tutor and trainer, I should be more mindful of the fact that people learn in three ways. While the primary way is through reading, the other ways are by touching and actually handling or doing what is being taught. And the last way is by listening or seeing an image/example of what is discussed.

      Thank you so much for the feedback. Please give me a little more guidance so that I can make the right adjustments.
