The Learning Explosion is a great resource for training professionals charged with the task of introducing virtual learning to a corporate environment. Whether you're incorporating a blended learning approach or straight virtual classroom training, the new mind-set and the new rule-set outlined in this book will serve as your go-to guide. --Paul Krause, President and CEO, Element K

At Adobe we recognize that virtual classrooms are the future of learning. We also agree with Murdoch and Muller that the future is now, their 9 rules are an accurate representation of e-learning best practices.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book on the current and future state of learning technology and methodology. The 9 practical rules will become the new standard of e-learning. Matt and Treion do a great job in laying out the issues of today and how to overcome them. They not only show you how to accomplish the things that should be done but, their innovative thinking will help you realize all of the possibilities and what can be done. I loved the format of this book with the snippets that look like Facebook/Twitter, the style of the content, and how they used the principles that they teach in the book. I love the stories that apply so well to our current and future world. A great read - I highly suggest it.

I highly recommend this one!

Format: Paperback
I was loaned a review copy of The Learning eXplosion from the author and I was really excited to read what was written not only because I know the author and am intimately familiar with FranklinCovey, but also because I'm very interested in both Technology and Education in general and felt that an exploration of Online and Technology based learning is a very intriguing topic well worth exploring.

The book is laid out vey well and feels very conversational. From the first page to the last, I felt like I was engaged in a discussion with the authors. Granted, it's a one-sided discussion as far as the book is concerned because obviously while a "static" book may pose questions to the reader, it doesn't respond or alter the discussion based on my responses. However, this book (as you might suspect based on the topic) includes supplemental online material to not only keep the discussion going but to turn it into a more "LIVE" conversation. The authors maintain an active twitter account, blogs, Facebook pages and more. By doing this, not only do they help ensure their readers can be kept up to date with new information, but they also actively engage with their readers to answer questions or postulate on concerns and continue discussions. So in a sense, the book transcends the page in the very way they suggest 21st century learning needs to transcend the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom/teacher learning.

As I read the book, there was a natural flow/progression. The book began with general education and information about the Online Learning trajectory and the influence and influx of technology...each chapter/segment gradually introducing more and more information and presenting ideas for learning and incorporating more.

We're converting a ILT program to eLearning and I started at Amazon to do my research. I ran across this book and took a stab at it - the authors are reputable experts in the field and I thought 'why not'?

Great decision!

This book was well-written, easy to grok, simply presented and has long legs for any person or organization looking to convert from ILT -> virtual. The "rules" were easy to interpret and use in my particular case and were full of steps-based suggestions, most of which have already proven to be valuable in working our conversion approach. I immediately went and bought a new whiteboard and our small team is already making big progress!

Thanks to the authors Matt and Treion for putting together such an easy and useful book!

BTW - I devoured it in less than a day. Buying this book is a no brainer.
