Cool News for Us!

Some interesting news has been happening around here lately! Take a look...

1. 19 Best Elearning Blogs: This blog (Corporate Training & e-Learning Blog) was recently listed by Gabe Anderson
as one of the “19 Best Elearning Blogs” (http://blog.articulate.com/the-19-best-elearning-blogs). He published this list in Articulate's blog called Word of Mouth Blog. Big kudos for us to share an equal mention in the same list with blogs from industry experts like ASTD, Jay Cross, Elliott Massie, Kevin Kruse, Brent Schlenker, Robin Good, and Susan Smith Nash. A HUGE “Thank you!” to Gabe and to Articule!

2. Articulate Beta Product Reviewer:
Articulate.com invited me to beta test their awesome new high-end e-learning interactivity tool called Articulate Engage. I can’t say enough great things about this not-yet-released product. Its template-based interaction builder provides a fast, easy way to create beautiful and sophisticated interactive Flash experiences (that can include audio and video) and then add them to any e-learning course. Engage’s extremely friendly and well-designed user interface allows anyone to energize e-learning courses and produce gorgeous results. I can’t wait to use it “for real” after its official release. Another BIG "Thank you" to Articulate for inviting me along on this fun ride!

3. Podcast Interview: I recently spent an hour being interviewed by John C. Havens, actor and podcast expert, for a podcast and article/whitepaper he’s creating/writing for
About.com’s Guide to Podcasting (http://podcasting.about.com). (About.com is part of The New York Times Company.) His podcast/article will be called “Podcasting: Sound Theory. How Just In Time, Do It Yourself Audio/Media Can Improve Corporate Training and Your Bottom Line.” John is very knowledgeable, an expert in the field, and extremely passionate about podcasting. I will share links with you as soon as it is published. Thank you, John, for this generous opportunity!

4. New Clients: My company
CramerSweeney Instructional Design has recently been awarded some interesting projects with a number of great new clients, including the American Management Association (AMA), Miller Brewing Company, Comcast, L A Weight Loss, and Bristol-Myers Squibb. These projects run the design and development gamut of e-learning, simulations, and instructor-led training. Very exciting!

5. Corporate Learning Forum: As a founding member of
Corporate Learning Forum (CLF), I am pleased to announce the close of our first successful month. After its first few weeks, the member company list already reads like a “Who’s Who" among the Fortune 500! A small sampling of these early members: American Express, Boeing, AstraZeneca, Walt Disney Company, Coca-Cola, Miller Brewing Company, 3M, American Red Cross, Comcast, FedEx, GEICO, GMAC, Hewlett Packard, Intuit, J&J, Lockheed Martin, Merck & Co., MetLife, Motorola, Oracle, Penn State University, Pfizer, KPMG, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, PSE&G, Roche, Target Corporation, Bank of New York, Time Warner Cable, United Airlines, United Way, Clorox, UPS, Washington Mutual, Wyeth, and the list goes on and on.
