    Free paper: eLearning DIY Authoring: The insiders buying guide. 

    There have been many who have asked me how do you choose the best Authoring Tool for DIY eLearning development.

    For some time I have been toying with the idea of writing a buyers guide.

    As someone who sells more than one of these tools and is independent of any manufacturer, I have decided the time is right, so here it is. And it’s FREE. Also contains some great historical info.

    Download the Inside Buyers Guide.

      Is the buyer’s guide still available? The link appears to be broken. Just curious!

      Mmm… Not sure what happened to the link. I will create a new one tomorrow and repost it for you.

    I am sure I will get into trouble for this…. 

    No words really needed.

    For some time the flow of emails from offshore companies (offshore is a great term here, how far do they have to be before offshore becomes other side of the world?) had slowed to a trickle. Then our very own Mr Cameron took his high power delegation to inja and once again the emails have started. How many of these companies can there be?

    I received emails this week from a number of different companies in India offering services, the first email told me they wished to talk of their enchanting gamut of services. I almost booked the call just to understand what it was they had to offer, really an exciting gamut of services, what does that actually mean I wonder? Then the attached picture arrived!

    Another told me they ‘gad great quatity’ in their service. Their quatity was so good they even spelled india without the capital I.

    The list of well know elearning companies they claim to be using their services gives great cause for concern. Ask your vendor if they are outsourcing, if they are ask what they are doing to check the quatity.

    Then call me. Great week of funny blogs….

    Are you giving 100%? 

    I saw this and loved it. Can’t give anyone credit for it, as I don’t know who wrote it, other than to say I wish it was me, but sadly it was not.

    But had to share….

    This is  strictly a mathematical viewpoint. It goes like this:
    What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder
    about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all
    been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.
    How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

    Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

    If:

    A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

    Is represented as:

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

    Then:

    H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K

    8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

    And

    K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

    11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

    But ,

    A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

    1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

    And,

    B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T

    2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

    AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

    A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G

    1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

    So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and
    Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the
    Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

      It’s still as funny as when I first saw this in the 80’s when I was serving in the Army, it’s been around a long time and as you can imagine there are many variations on the theme
