E-learning Payoff is Performance Good overview of the role a learning content management system (LCMS) plays in a learning organization. The best insight of the article: "The content must be viewed as a continuous stream that is constantly getting updated to adapt to the needs of business, rather than a static 'course' that delivers a bunch of information out of context. In fact, the very notion of a 'course' is now open to challenge and re-examination." By Harvi Singh, The Business Times, April 9, 2001. Submitted on Jun 6, 2001 [Refer]

Mindlever Leveraged Learning Architecture The illustration is the strong point of this presentation, illustrating the flow from content creation, learning content management (LCMS), program management and instructional management. More description would have been useful. Submitted on Jun 6, 2001 [Refer]

Create a New University Cute design demo offered by ePath Learning to animate its learning content management system (LCMS). The idea, of course, is to create a course using shared learning objects. Intuitive, easy to use, but I found no means to import content from external content libraries or providers. Submitted on Jun 6, 2001 [Refer]

Learning Content Management Systems Good overview article of LCMS; I especially like the table comparing old style and new style learning content creation. Also useful is the list of key attributes of an LCMS. By Harvi Singh, E-Learning Magazine, February, 2001. Submitted on Jun 6, 2001 [Refer]

Bringing It All Together This article surveys four major models for distance and online learning support and settles on a training and education centre model derived from the more traditional centers for continuing education or professional development. His point - and I agree with this - is that the design of an online and distance learning strategy should focus on providing new and different services for learners, and not merely trying to emulate existing services.

Shop Talk: Wireless with that Latte, Sir? Today's new net jargon is Wi-Fi, which is the common name for the 802.11b wireless standard. The idea here is that Wi-Fi access will become increasingly common in public places, such as the Orchard Valley Coffee shop discussed in this article. An access fee of $3 per hour is a bit steep, but nothing beats whipping out your notebook while settling down for a nice Latte on the patio...
