From the Author:

The objective of this book is not to confuse the issues surrounding the technologies associated with e-learning, for there are enough excellent, but often fragmented pieces of information, swirling around that you may feel like you are hanging on to the tail of a tornado with greased hands. There does not seem to be any time to catch your breath to keep up with the constantly changing developments and opportunities on the e-learning landscape and horizon.

This book is about and creating your own carefully prepared and selected mix of learning technology applications. The book's companion CD illuminates two case study examples. These case studies demonstrate how world-class organizations created blended approaches based on training needs and requirements. Using the CD that accompanies this book, you will see the actual blended e-learning experience as seen through the eyes of the learner. Seeing is believing, as the saying goes! What the CD does is show you how the blend of methods, media, and delivery provides a just-in-time, interesting, informational, educational and enjoyable learning experience for the learner. You will be able to read the case studies from IBM and Intellinex Corporation, and then use the CD to bring the text-based learning descriptions of their blended approach and see the actual student materials, demonstrated right on your own desktop.
