Building a Learning Portal

Posted January 17, 2009 by B.J. Schone

We implemented a learning portal at work several months back, and it has turned out to be one of the best things I could recommend to an organization for improving access to learning materials. In the past, I’ve worked at organizations where we would tell learners, “Look in the LMS” to find materials and information. […]

Have LMSs Jumped The Shark?

Posted March 20, 2009 by B.J. Schone

I constantly hear people (across many organizations) complain about their learning management system (LMS). They complain that their LMS has a terrible interface that is nearly unusable. Upgrades are difficult and cumbersome. Their employees’ data is locked in to a proprietary system. Users hate the system. It’s ugly. (Did I miss anything?) I think LMSs […]

Micro-blogging at Work

Posted May 30, 2009 by B.J. Schone

I’ve been on Twitter for over a year, and I find great value in the ability to ask questions to a large group of people (ex. friends, peers, etc.) when I need to find information. I often get excellent answers and suggestions that have much more value than a Google search would have yielded. I […]

No More eLearning Software

Posted May 13, 2011 by Eric Matas

I cursed myself in a current post (What I Like About eLearning) when I included a semi-sarcastic comment about having umpteen programs open on my computer every day in order to get my elearning work done. Since then I have articulated at least one non-HR-approved word in reaction to slow computer action or even crashes. […]

Mozilla Ubiquity as an On-Demand Learning Tool

Posted August 28, 2008 by B.J. Schone

Earlier this week, Mozilla (the makers of Firefox) released Ubiquity – a small application that allows you to quickly perform web-related tasks without having to surf out to different web sites. Watch their video for a quick introduction. So, can this relate to learning? My answer would be absolutely! My main job is to help […]
