While I spend a lot of time writing about elearning, instructional design, and various technologies in our industry, I also enjoy reading what other people write.
Our industry is one of diverse skill-sets, demands, and opinions. We all have a chance to learn from someone else’s experience.
If you are an instructional designer then reading someone’s blog post or publication may give you ideas on techniques to use. Learning management administrators can learn about new technologies. Consultants can discover new strategies for handling difficult clients.
