5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful guide June 12 2012
By DS
Format:Spiral-bound
As a business owner and life-long learner, I was extremely pleased with the information I found in this Guide to Effective Online Training. The Internet is becoming a huge source of knowledge, yet so many people do not know how to make use of all the online learning and teaching possibilities. This book explains many of the free tools available, in simple terms, with links to examples of how each technology is currently being used by various organizations and businesses to train their personnel.

It is full of practical information for educators, teachers, business trainers and individuals who are looking for new ways to teach, especially if your audience is scattered or in remote locations.

Of course, there are always advantages and disadvantages to each of the resources, depending on your needs, and this booklet details both in order to help make informed decision about what methods to try for your personnel training.

What is 'moodle'? How does 'cloud computing work? You'll find the answers in this book! The topics covered include many that I did not know about or consider before, such as online conferences, webinars and videos, blogs, e-books, accredited learning opportunities, online meetings and discussion groups, online presentations and slide sharing, podcasts, social bookmarking, social networking, web-based training modules, using wikis and even 'moodle'.

Overall, this was a very useful guide for me in my business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staying ahead of the curve Aug. 1 2012
By Eric
Format:Spiral-bound
Staying ahead of the curve - everyone seems to be offering online training these days, but I want my agency to offer effective and engaging online training. This Guide to Effective Technologies gave a great overview of technologies I'd heard about, but not had time to explore (like wikis and podcasts). Now I can't wait to try integrating some of these technologies, not just into adult literacy instruction, but also into professional development opportunities for staff. In fact, the tools that are explored here are relevant to any kind of online learning - educational or recreational. This resource gets 5 stars for relevance and applicability!
