Hello eLearning Weekly fans and readers!

This post is my first editorial comment since coming on board as the Managing Editor at eLearning Weekly. I am pumped up with adrenaline and elearning energy because next week is the official relaunch.

elearning weekly re-launches after labor day

Next week, after Labor Day, eLearning Weekly will kick off a series of regular new content with a spotlight piece that focuses on a cutting-edge LMS solution. The LMS space is changing drastically and we will write regularly about the options and trends for learning management–after all, where the elearning goes is pretty important.

eLearning Weekly will not be as entirely “all new” as this post’s title boasts. The blog will get a bit of a make-over so the look of the site will complement the new content, but long-time  readers will see the same committment to quality content that strives to explore techniques and tools and shares tips and tricks. Both B.J. and I are innovators and early adopters, but we are also well-grounded, careful thinkers. So, while we will jump into hip, fresh elearning news like using social media, we will also be a calm space in the middle of the elearning storm, writing about practical ideas and consistent practices.

On a final note, I want to invite you to be involved. We are a sort of hybrid now: part blog and part online magazine, and we want contributors. Contributors can be writers who post once, post more than once, or post regularly. Let us know your interest by emailing editor@ericmatas.com. In the meantime, you can contribute by commenting on the posts. 😉
