Elliot Massie is exploding my eLearning tech head

Posted by bryanzug - 2005/09/27

I recently attended an eLearning webinar by Elliott Masie that exploded my head (yes, very messy, I know, excuse me while I clean up the parlor).

It was titled ‘Is Instructional Design Relevant to RSS, Mobile Learning, Blogs, PodCasts, Wikis and New Tech?’ and I will be writing up my takeaways soon.

Having never heard of Masie before, signed up for his email newsletter and am finding it very helpful on eLearning technologies and trends. He’s publishing quite a few podcasts that are really great.

(Also learned from him that his research is showing that podcasts under 10 minutes offer a more optimized learning experience — had not come across that info anywhere, but the instant he said it, it made sense — but hey, what do I know, I’m just a web dev.)

Thought I’d pass on a few nuggets from Masie’s newsletter that ended up in my inbox this AM – enjoy…
