Power of HTML5 – SEE IT NOW
Great example, if you have not yet seen it – Music Video built in 100% HTML5
I strongly recommend you download the beta version of Chrome, which has very strong support for HTML5. While your current browsers do support HTML5, the newer ones far surpass them, and right now excluding Safari, Chrome is the only one out there.

I do not recommend Safari as it will slow down your resources.  You can have another window open if you want, it worked with me.  But it is up to you.
This music video was built in 100% HTML5 and uses geolocation.  Frankly it is amazing.  Even if you do not like the band, watch for the guy appearing on your street as an image and running down your street.

Free Blog Articles to Download, Print & Share

Below are the PDF versions of some of the articles, with more to come soon.

Some are a collection of articles with updates.  I will be launching .epub, .mobi on a new platform in two weeks. These formats are for e-readers – for viewing online – u can dl an e-reader and view online or on e-readers such as the Nook, Sony Reader, Kindle and other companies, plus on tablets including the Ipad.

All PDFs have been fixed and you will not need a password to download them.

The files will work for those who are visually impaired and use programs that read pdfs beyond the standard ones.   Size of the file is in ( ) and thus dl time may be slower or faster depending on your connection.

In Two weeks

Web Conferencing – the Players, the Duds, the Newcomers – includes a directory of all the vendors out there.  Article will include features that are standard, so you don’t get hooked into the hype.

Coming at the end of October 2010

People have been asking me for my top LMS vendors, and so, I will be providing my top 20 vendors. They will be selected on various factors, which will be listed.  While every vendor, I am sure feels they have the best solution, IMO, there are 20 that stand out. Do they need to include social learning? They should, but that is just one of the factors.

I will tell you that two of my top 5 up and coming LMS vendors are not on that list, as over the past few months, I have seen others surpass them.

Web Site

I will be launching a web site the first week of November. This will be a site for E-Learn Info, my company, but will provide useful information – free.  This will be in addition to my blog – which will always remain and be free.

Speaking Engagements

I will be presenting at BYOL on Nov. 10th-12th in NYC.
