Effective learning is more than Flash interactions

Learning is more than Flash interactions. Transfering and transforming information into strategic skills, knowledge and performance is more than instructional design. Too often we use ADDIE and elearning like a defibrillator— perhaps rescuing the organization during the current "crisis," but doing little or nothing in terms of the big picture planning for preparation, ongoing "treatment", […]

CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver 8 has been released

I just checked the Macromedia area of Rapid Intake website and saw that CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver 8 is now available for download. As a reader observed in my earlier post about the CourseBuilder beta, this release makes CourseBuilder compatible with Dreamweaver 8, but does not offer new functionality (yet?).

Nvu has the right pedigree, extensibility, speed, rendering and more. Nvu just isn’t as fully featured as it need to be […]

Moving on from Macromedia/Adobe

In case you missed reading it at my official Macromedia blog (Elearning Moving Forward), I have moved on from Adobe. December 9, 2005 was officially my last day. Hopefully Silke Fleischer (and others?) will continue the Elearning Blog in my absence. I just got a new laptop today and I can’t wait get started on […]

Blog Portability, or Tom gets official

Now I’ve gone and done it. Macromedia decided that my anecdote and pun-laden posts are worthy of an official Macromedia blog. — http://www.markme.com/tking/ I copied almost everything that I posted from here over to the new URL. I still have to figure out how to add my own links for standards, events, etc. Being “official” […]
