5.0 out of 5 stars Doris S. February 27, 2012

This is a very practical guide that explains the various online methods of teaching and learning new skills.

There are so many ways to benefit from internet technology for learning. Some of them were new to me. By reading this book, I was able to learn about them and apply many of them instantly to help me gain new skills and knowledge without having to leave my office.

Since reading this book, I've created a blog, worked on publishing an eBook, watched on-line teaching videos, participated in webinars and on-line conferences, used wikis and made better use of social media for my business.

The practical information can greatly benefit non-profit organizations and businesses for their training needs.

A well-written report with practical examples!

With so many different products available to use for online training, but no time to research them, this resource was a real time-saver. It's great to see a resource that is well-written, not overly wordy, and so practical!

Guide to Effective Technologies for Providing Online Training

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.
