I discovered SlideShare and liked it very much. It is the slideshow version of YouTube. Currently takes PPT, PPS, PDF and OpenOffice files only. Slideshare allows you to embed presentations on your site just like YouTube. Figured that the site is already about a year old. Will this be the next YouTube or Facebook? Time will tell but I would put some money on it. Read about Rashmi Sinha, the co-founder and CEO of SlideShare.
Found a great presentation that describes different styles of blogging by Rohit Bhargava and Jesse Thomas of Ogilvy.
Inspired by this, here is my Directory Blog article this time. Here’s the list of websites, blogs that you might find useful.
Learning, eLearning, Training:
- I loved Cathy Moore’s blog on ideas for lively learning. This is a great repository of ideas to make elearning and all content interesting and lively. Truly a “Get a life” site for content development ideas.
- Clive Shephard describes himself as consultant with an interest in all aspects of technology-assisted learning and communication.
- Brandon Hall research site – needs no introduction. View RSS feed on the side bar.
- Learning Circuits blog – love their Big Questions. View RSS feed on the side bar.
- Learning TRENDS by Elliott Masie
- eLearning Technology, Tony Karrer’s blog. This blog also has a huge listing of other related blogs.
- Bersin and Associates – Research on what works in enterprise learning and talent management. Lots of reports and papers, mostly paid. However you can still find enough free stuff, mostly 30,000 foot view.
- CLO Media – Must subscribe to their email newsletter. Also get access to the digital version of CLO Magazine. And it is always good to see familiar names like Nafay Kumail on this site.
Indian learning, content development community:
- The Learned Man – impressive one man show
- Simply Speaking on learning, business and beyond – Geetha Krishnan’s blog
- Kern Communications blog – again, good to see familiar names (Geeta Bose) on the web
- Tata Interactive Systems blog
- Wavelength – good to see entrepreneurial streak in ex-collegues (Shefali Anand)
And of course, I am begining to like del.icio.us very much. Add me to your network and we can share our Internet bookmarks.
