Rapid Development Tool for a Novice
Hi Everyone, I'm new to this group and to the corporate training world as a whole.

Hi, I have a (13 yr) background in mostly skills development training, and have recently taken a post with Bangor University where I'll be involved in creating (amongst other things) online skills tutorials/workshops. I've experience using Captivate & Panopto for instructional tutorials (Agresso) but I'm very much the novice when it comes to using this medium for skills training provision. Any help much apprciated, a bit of signposting/recommendations particularly so I can focus my efforts and avoid any pitfalls! Thanks.
We created a learning platform regarding web development. We provide trainings for free, provide personal mentoring for the students, and help those people who cannot afford to go in school for some reason.
We need help reaching out to students, recent graduates or other people who are interested in learning these topics. If you're interested just visit Village88.com.
I would be very grateful if some one could point me any formal definitions of the term M-learning - particularly in contrast with distance learning and e-learning.

I am an e-learning designer working for the University of Leeds and am quite fond of Articulate Studio 09 (I do stuff like this among other things). I'm organising the Second European Articulate Conference on the 17th of May in Leeds and thought some of you may want to check it out.
We've got many very cool people contributing (see conference programme) and lots of useful and fun stuff to see and do.
A few places are still available if you'd like to sign up (details in the programme above).
Have fun and hope to meet some of you soon in Leeds,

I am writing an article for http://diepresse.com, Austria's top quality newspaper, on state-of-the art web-based language learning systems. Readers are all types of organisations, HR, researchers but also learners who are interested in using these. Can anyone of you point me to state-of-the-art technology, great solutions, user-friendly solutions, solutions preferred by organisations where language learning plays a role? Also, what are key points that should be taken care of?
Many thanks for your hints -- I would appreciate to get your thoughts or contact persons. I will be happy to quote you or your contacts. Here are references to my articles http://www.talkshop.cc/en/writing/articles/index.html
Members of the group might be interested in participating in the conference either by presenting a paper or poster or demonstrating your product.
